So, is anyone else here watching Ken win every day on Jeopardy? Only four more wins and he sets the record for the most consecutive appearances on any game show in history.

Marie and I were watching last night... the guy is just plain incredible... and 30 years old.

His opponents, every time I have seen him play, barely get to speak at all...

Clearly, the guy has a brain that is just a complete sponge. There were quite a few questions that I just needed a few more seconds to search my memory... but he just spewed the answers right out.

This all prompted me to suggest to Marie that in the era of good wireless devices and excellent, speedy search engines on the net... could he be getting fed answers?

That would take a lot of coordination. I've never seen a search engine quite that fast, either. After all, he only gets a second or two to ring in. Someone would have to type in the search phrase, get a result and go to the page with the answer. Doesn't sound very practical to me.

I missed today's show. I'm assuming he won again.
