More information about Final Jeopardy:

Founded by Walter Gropius in post-World War I Germany (the Weimar Republic) as a merger of the Grand Ducal School of Arts and Crafts and the Weimar Academy of Fine Art, the Bauhaus school operated from 1919 to 1933. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was its final director. Political pressures often forced the school to move; it moved from Weimar to Dessau and then Berlin; the Nazis forced its closure by 1933.

Ironically, the school did not offer architecture classes until 1927, in spite of its manifesto claiming that the aim of all creative activity is building.

Mies van der Rohe eventually relocated to Chicago where he designed many American modernist buildings, including New York’s Seagram Building.

Today, Tel Aviv, Israel is considered to have one of the best-preserved collection of Bauhaus architecture worldwide.

  1. A lot going on with today’s wagering, spinning my head around and around, more than usual….Rick wagering to stay $1 ahead of Becky, figuring, not unreasonably, that he will only win if Lori is incorrect…who meanwhile wagers enough to finish $1200 behind Rick if he wagers it all, which he didn’t, but how was he to know…boop boop de doop.

    • Despite performing very well, Lori appeared to be a bit nervous at times during the game (e.g. incorrectly reciting the year she met her husband) and might have combined the 17K from Rick’s score and the 200 from Becky’s, or she might have simply made a math error. Hopefully she was more relaxed for subsequent taping(s).

    Borrowed from German Bauhaus (“house of architecture”), from Bau (“building, construction”) + Haus (“house”). The word is derived from the Staatliches Bauhaus (State School of Construction), an art school in Weimar, Germany, founded in 1919 by German architect Walter Gropius (1883–1969).

  3. Lori tells a nice story about remembering her first date with her husband at Dodger Stadium, except she gets the year wrong. The Giants clinched the NL West at Dodger Stadium in 1989. The Dodgers won the West (and the World Series) in 1988, the year she said.

    Side note: the Dodgers beat the Giants the day the Giants clinched in 1989. They clinched because the Padres lost the same day.
