What is sepia?


Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?

The color “sepia” gets its name from the color of the ink of the cuttlefish (a mollusk related to the squid, except that the cuttlefish has a calcified internal shell). “Sepia” is the Latinized form of the Greek word for “cuttlefish”. As a color, sepia ink was often used as writing ink and a drawing material dating back to Greek and Roman times and was in use until the 19th century. Sepia-toned photographs resemble how old photographs have aged and are often used today to convey that aged effect.

In other Austin Rogers news, his run has reached a point that there is actually a fake Austin Rogers that surfaced on Twitter last night! In case you’re wondering, the real Austin Rogers is @austintylerro.

  1. And in his continuing quest for hitting Jeopardy! milestones, Austin is now in the 300 club.

    It’s weird — as much as I enjoy watching him win, I’m now rooting for him to lose because I want to be sure to see him in the ToC.

  2. The games on Wednesdays have been tough for Austin Rogers:

    In his 2nd game, it was the only game in his first week not to have a runaway.
    In his 7th game, he missed Final Jeopardy! for the very first time.
    Now, in his 12th game, he had his lowest winning score ever.

  3. Austin had $12,600 at the end of the first round and finishes with $15,400. Please don’t tell me that there were THAT many negs that cost the momentum on everybody.

    Congrats to Austin for making it to the top 5 in both cash winnings and consecutive games won.

  5. A nitpick. The following question appears in the Jeopardy opening sequence: “What is Tyrannosaurus Rex?”

    In binomial nomenclature, biologists properly write the first letter of the genus in upper-case, and the first letter of the species in lower-case. Thus, the question should read: “What is Tyrannosaurus rex?” Additionally, both terms should be italicized or underlined.

    Of course, none of this would matter in a spoken response.
