What's Your Dream Board on Jeopardy?

On Fridays, we post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else’s reply, ask a completely unrelated question to the group. Whatever you want! On to this week’s topics of discussion…

1. There's a great Cheers episode where Cliff Clavin appears on Jeopardy! The categories were all in his wheelhouse: Civil Servants, Stamps From Around the World, Mothers and Sons, Beer, Bar Trivia, and Celibacy. His amazing run ended in Final Jeopardy, when he blew $22,000 ("Who are three people who have never been in my kitchen?").

This got me thinking about my ideal Jeopardy! board. 20th Century Elections? College Mascots? Sesame Street? Sports Team Relocations? Discontinued Ben & Jerry's Flavors? Towns in North Jersey? What six categories would make up your Jeopardy! dream board?

(I've asked this one before, but it's been a while.)

2. Pretend you could go back and un-read one book. What do you wish you could read again for the first time?

3. Same question, but for movies.

4. Now I'll open up the floor to you guys. If you have a question for your fellow _flossers, ask away!
