Favorite anecdote associated with being on the show?
A friend made a music video of snippets from my shows, set to Queen's "Radio Ga-Ga."

Did being on Jeopardy! have any effect on your life?
The money has freed me, at least psychologically, from the main worry of my professional position--specifically, acquiring grant money. Still, getting a grant is nice.

Did you do anything crazy with your winnings?
That depends on one's opinion of the stock market in the last ten years.

Is there anything else you would like viewers to know about you?
I can still fit into the suit I wore back in 1993, so even if success has gone to my head it hasn't gone to my stomach.
