    If you are a follower of Jeopardy, what's your opinion on the smarts of Ken Jennings? 28 day champ with $900,000. Also a Software Engineer and Computer Engineer. I think it's amazing...

    Wow, 28 days? That's gotta be some sort of record.

    Yea, he's broken all the records and tied one, the one he tied he did today, a one day win of $52,000. He's trying to beat the longest games appeared on a gameshow ever. But he has to beat 46, which a man did on Tic-Tac-Doh...

    He broke $1 mill last night, making him a 30 day champion with a little over $1 million dollars won.

    At first I thought this was a hoax because I used to watch that show alot, and I remember they had a limit to how many you could win, but after visiting the jeopardy website and seeing they have lifted that limit I am stunned to say the least to see that somebody has actually gone that far.

    He should head over to Who wants to be a millionair once he is done with Jeopardy.

    He (Ken Jennings) was on Regis and Kelly this morning and they asked him if he had ever tried out for Millionaire, he said he passed all the written tests, but the producers of Millionaire never called him inviting him on...scared to give up more money. LOL

    Yea, Glyakk, they just changed that rule early this season. Im glad they did, it's probably boosting their ratings a good bit.

    Anyone care to explain to us foreigners what 'Jeopardy' is?
