What is the League of Nations?


Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

From its outset, the League of Nations was severely weakened when the United States failed to ratify the Treaty of Versailles, which contained the covenant of the League. I could probably write a book as to why.

The League eventually fell apart with the rise of the Axis powers in the 1930s. The League was powerless to enforce it, much due to the indifference of the other major world powers at that time, and that led to World War II.

  2. I rather liked the episode today. I rather hope I might be able to watch it again.

    I’d especially love Marathe’s line on nonsensical joke riddles on audio. That was entertaining to listen to.

  3. Yes, I’d like to hear Mukund’s riddle again. Loved him. He was a great contestant. Somebody please post his riddle.

      If a chicken and a half takes a day and a half to lay an egg and a half, how long does it take a centipede with a wooden leg to kick all the seeds out of a dill pickle?

      Orange, because ice cream has no bones.
