More information about Final Jeopardy:

The vast majority of islands in the Aegean Sea belong to Greece, the only major exceptions being Imbros and Tenedos in the northeast Aegean. Many of these islands have ties to ancient Greece, even though most of them were possessions of the Ottoman Empire prior to the First Balkan War of the early 1910s. Since that war, however, many of these islands have been a part of the Greek state.

    Another twisty result. I have choir practice tonight, but I see we have NCAA basketball on tonight anyway so I may get to see it Saturday at 3:35 a.m., if WWMT repeats last week’s scheduling.

    Again the weakness in all things European (geography/history/languages etc) reared its ugly head. Italy would not have been THAT bad an answer since she has at least a mainland. Cyprus and Malta have not, they are islands. Yesterday the clue about Italy/Buenos Aires (DD) was missed too, though the clue almost spelled it out “Tanos” as in iTaliANOS. There are almost 2 million people who are Italian or of direct Italian ancestry living in Argentina, as a result of the late 19th/early to mid 20th century European immigration flood.
    And the last shall be first… congratulations Lynn!!

    Jeopardy has been able to design remarkably interesting Geography questions for the show, as exhibited by this clever Final Jeopardy.

    • Sarcasm?

        Historically Turkey and Greece have been at each other’s throat for centuries. That alone should have pointed to Turkey. BUT…that would have required some knowledge in European history as well, not just geography.Easy for me to say since I was born and lived in Europe for over 30 years and studied European history.

        No sarcasm. This may be the internet, home to trolls and scammers, but I am playing so such silly game. Let me be more clear by saying this. The quality level of the “Jeopardy!” TV show is a clear step up from other lesser trivia games such as bar trivia. Jeopardy asks questions that are worth knowing the answers to, and they ask those questions in interesting ways. Sometimes a kind word is merely what it appears to be. On Friday the Mr Rogers stamp comes out. It’s Kindness Day in the USA.

    I didn’t know there were so many Italian immigrants in Argentina. I did watch that show. From my one South American history course (a LONG time ago) I seem to remember there being a large German population but that answer didn’t fit the clue.

    • john blahuta | March 22, 2018 at 4:39 pm |

      There are about 750.000 Germans or direct German descendants living in Argentina as well, about one third of Italians. A lot of German immigration into all of South America also happened after WW II……A lot of today’s Germans have granparents who fled Germany to avoid prosecution (Nazi).
