Getting on Jeopardy is hard and most players are great at trivia.  The difference between winners and losers is usually luck and timing.
This guy has great trivia skills but also is super fast on the buzzer and has good betting and aggressive strategy. 

I jumped for joy yesterday when I got one right that he got wrong :) 
I objectively disavow anyone in the skeptic movement accused of acting illegally or unethically, especially when it comes to violations of personal space or bodily autonomy, or of a prejudiced nature.

He is great at the clicker, and only clicks when he knows the answer
I don't understand some things, but at least I know I don't know

According to a little research, most Catholics are confirmed around age 14, which fits well with my memory of when my own catholic friends were confirmed...in 8th and 9th grade.
