I don’t watch Jeopardy! because it’s a depressing reminder that my knowledge base is completely one-dimensional and never came remotely close to evolving the way I thought it would when I was a kid.

I have a degree in English literature and whenever something about books come up I just shrug my shoulders as my friends stare in disbelief at my fundamental lack of knowledge about…anything. Thanks, SparkNotes.
But good news. I would have nailed one question last night:
