We also know it was the real Ken Jennings because he contacted the admins ahead of time and asked if we minded if he did research for his book Maphead. He was super polite about it. Of course we told him to go right ahead.

Also, he's a way better host than Mayim Bialik (what I've seen of her hosting feels a lot like they set up an Amazon Alexa on Alex's lectern).

Meanwhile, whoever posted this on Quindaropedia caused me to laugh pretty heartily when I first woke up.

Glad we know Poiponen's stance on the debate:
Alanland thread would be good to be unlocked.

It will only be unlocked by decree of Alanland Inferior Court Judge Jade John Madden.

I guess a candidate for Grand Alan can't unlock it.

Only a mod can unlock it.  Not even Alanland Inferior Court Judge Jade John Madden can unlock it, because she isn't a mod.

Interestingly, I should but don't. I accidentally put too much withholding on my W-4 form (I've since changed it), which means I'm currently below that number but would be above if I didn't make that mistake. At least I'll get it back.

Another reason why MMM is my clone ó cash on hand is pretty much identical. Unlike him, though, I do have student debt. My student debt is above 29,000, but my cash on hand plus the value of everything I own (notably my coin collection, although that alone isn't enough) means my net worth is barely positive even after considering student debt.

Are you sure MMM isnít just the evil version of you from the mirror universe?  If MMM has a goatee we know for sure heís the evil version.

Isn't all this more information about yourself than you've generally professed to be comfortable with sharing? Just curious I guess.
