Personal Quote:

[on relying on access to the Internet over wide-ranging general knowledge] It worries me a little. When you make a decision you need facts. If those facts are in your brain, they're at your fingertips. If they're all in Google somewhere you may not make the right decision on the spur of the moment. See more »

Trivia:

On November 30th 2004 he was finally dethroned as Jeopardy champ by Nancy Zerg. The Final Jeopardy answer was "Employees at this white collar firm work only four months out of the year." The answer was "H. and R Block", Jennings said "Fed Ex". He finished his reign with a grand total of $2,520,700. See more »
