I just finished watching "The Bucket List" with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. In the movie, Morgan Freeman's character is constantly watching Jeopardy and always knows all of the answers. It made me remember a high school math teacher of mine that only lasted a year in our meager school district. The guy had a fixation with Jeopardy and was always talking about the database that he had made over the past 10 years or so of all of the questions and answers. He seemed to think that there was a finite number of questions and was always looking for someone to coach and get to memorize all of the random facts he had collected. He was a strange guy with bizarre mannerisms and dressed like he was about 30 years older than he was-- I wonder whatever happened to him.
