  10. “Programs like ‘Jeopardy’ and ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ are ridiculous. They’re the stupidest shows in history. They’re making us dumber. They don’t give us information, they give us facts, factoids. You don’t learn who Napoleon was and how he was motivated. You learn what year he was born, and when he died. That’s useless.” ~ Ray Bradbury
  11. “You watch an old ‘Jeopardy!’ and the categories alone are very plain. ‘Poetry,’ or ‘Movies,’ or ‘Physics.’ If you watch it now, though, there’ll be a theme board where the categories are all Hitchcock movies. Lots more jokes, lots more high-concept categories and questions.” ~ Ken Jennings
  12. “I can’t relax and sink back in the couch and watch ‘Jeopardy!’ the way I used to.” ~ Ken Jennings

  20. “I should esteem it the extreme of imprudence to prolong the precarious state of our national affairs, and to expose the Union to the jeopardy of successive experiments, in the chimerical pursuit of a perfect plan.

The result of the deliberations of all collective bodies must necessarily be a compound, as well of the errors and prejudices, as of the good sense and wisdom, of the individuals of whom they are composed.” ~ Alexander Hamilton
  21. “I watch ‘Jeopardy!’ every night and ‘Wheel of Fortune’ follows. And every time I’m like, ‘Whoa, it’s still on! This is still happening!'” ~ Martha MacIsaac

  22. “During the whole ‘Jeopardy’ experience, I felt like I was living a bit of a double life, I would be secretly flying out to L.A. to tape new shows, hoping that none of my coworkers would notice the absence and figure out what was going on. ‘Jeopardy’ tries very hard to keep their secrets.” ~ Ken Jennings , Double jeopardy quotes
  23. “Realization of this need means adults must awaken to the urgency of the young people’s unrest-in other words there must be created an adult unrest against the inequities and injustices in the present system. If the government is in jeopardy, it is not because we are unable to cope with revolutionary situations. Jeopardy means that either the leaders or the people do not realize they have all the tools required to make the revolution come true. The tools and the opportunity exist. Only the moral imagination is missing.” ~ William O. Douglas
  24. “I have no inhibitions about smoking or drinking, but I think too much of my voice to place it in jeopardy. I have spent many good years in training and cultivating it, and I would be foolish to do anything which might impair or ruin it.” ~ Jeanette MacDonald
  25. “That historian or scholar who delights in pointing out the weaknesses and frailties of present or past leaders destroys faith. A destroyer of faith — particularly one within the Church, and more particularly one who is employed specifically to build faith — places himself in great spiritual jeopardy.

  29. “We have nightmares because our brain is running simulations to put us in jeopardy to see what we’ll do or to acclimatize us to that idea that something bad could happen. It’s just how human beings are wired because the entire time we were evolving we had to jump quick or the leopard would get us or whatever it was. It’s Darwinian.” ~ James Cameron

As much as the fans claim [that] all they want is just want people sitting around and having a nice time together, trust me, you would not be watching the show if there wasn’t conflict, if there wasn’t drama, if there wasn’t jeopardy. And it’s not just physical jeopardy, it’s romantic jeopardy as well.” ~ Joseph Dougherty
  33. “We could have saved Wall Street without putting our future in jeopardy. I predicted that there would be all-around consequences – in the long run as well as in the short run.

So, in effect, we’re saying that it’s better that we give rich bankers a couple of trillion than giving ordinary Americans access to health care.” ~ Joseph Stiglitz
  34. “Hillary Clinton was an outstanding secretary of state. She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy.” ~ Barack Obama

She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy.’ Mr. Wallace pressed further on the jeopardy angle, and Mr. Obama responded again: ‘I continue to believe that she has not jeopardized America’s national security. Now what I’ve also said is that – and she has acknowledged – that there’s a carelessness, in terms of managing emails…'”” ~ Barack Obama
  37. “Hillary Clinton was an outstanding secretary of state. She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy. And what I also know, because I handle a lot of classified information, is that there’s classified and then there’s classified. There’s stuff that is really top secret top secret, and there’s stuff that is being presented to the president or the secretary of state that you might not want on the transom or, you know, going out over the wire, but is basically stuff that you could get in open source.” ~ Barack Obama
  38. “I have met with women who toward the end of their pregnancy get the worst news one could get, that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term or that something terrible has happened or just been discovered about the pregnancy.

  41. “Artificial intelligence uses a complex set of rules – algorithms – to get to a conclusion. A computer has to calculate its way through all those rules, and that takes a lot of processing. So AI works best when a small computer is using it on a small problem – your car’s anti-lock brakes are based on AI. Or you need to use a giant computer on a big problem – like IBM using a room-size machine to compete against humans on Jeopardy in 2011.” ~ Kevin Maney
  42. “We’re all self-destructive when we’re young. We all rebel. If we don’t, there’s something wrong. But when a Chicano kid’s in a rebellious state, he has nowhere to go but to put himself in jeopardy with the police.

If I’m in the presence of someone of greater net worth, fame, or status, I feel inferior. If I’m in the presence of someone of lesser net worth, fame or status, I feel superior. My sense of self-worth constantly fluctu-ates. I don’t have any sense of constancy, anchorage, or persistent selfhood. I am constantly trying to protect and insure my assets, properties, securities, position, or reputation.” ~ Stephen Covey
  51. “There is alas no law against incompetency; no striking example is made. They learn by our bodily jeopardy and make experiments until the death of the patients, and the doctor is the only person not punished for murder.” ~ Pliny the Elder
  52. “Ironically, members on both sides of the debate do agree about one thing: big bang cosmology puts their position in jeopardy. The big bang poses a problem for young-earth creationists because it makes the universe billions of years old rather than thousands. Such an assertion undercuts their system at its foundation. Big bang cosmology also presents a problem for atheistic scientists because it points directly to the existence of a transcendent Creator – a fact they dare not concede.” ~ Hugh Ross
  53. “Don’t make your audience play Jeopardy. Giving your answer before asking the question puts your audience at a disadvantage. It will also reveal your biases. Make it clear what question you are trying to answer first. Then allow your audience to engage in answering the question too.” ~ John Fairclough
  54. “My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore – my body is just not on the table that way anymore.” ~ Christina Aguilera

  56. “As you evolve, you lean that wrestling is not necessarily about stunts or spots. You need to go out and show the audience that they can love you for the persona you are – not because of the risk you’re willing to take or the jeopardy you’re willing to put your body in.” ~ Matt Hardy
  57. “Well, I refer to Celebrity Jeopardy as the short-bus Jeopardy, because it is a lot easier. Like, there was a whole column basically naming stores in New York.” ~ Andy Richter
  58. “Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Whenever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.” ~ Elie Wiesel
  59. “…The very nature of interstate war puts innocent civilians into great jeopardy, especially with modern technology.” ~ Murray Rothbard

  61. “I do agree that the science is not settled on this. The idea we would put Americans’ economy in jeopardy based on scientific theory that is not settled yet to me is nonsense. Just because you have a group of scientists who stood up and said this is the fact… Galileo got outvoted for a spell. To put Americans’ economic future in jeopardy, asking us to cut back in areas that would have monstrous economic impact on this country is not good economics and I would suggest is not necessarily good science.” ~ Rick Perry
  62. “To turn Karl [Popper]’s view on its head, it is precisely the abandonment of critical discourse that marks the transition of science. Once a field has made the transition, critical discourse recurs only at moments of crisis when the bases of the field are again in jeopardy. Only when they must choose between competing theories do scientists behave like philosophers.” ~ Thomas Kuhn
  63. “Choose life over death, Niko, when a choice can be made that puts no soul in jeopardy.” ~ Janet Morris

Now, may the good God pardon all good men!” ~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
