@ Sleutel"the first known occurrence of the word is 1862"Hogwash. Jeopardy, as a legal concept, has its roots in Ancient Greece. It was codified by Justinian and continued through the Dark Ages into English common law. The word itself derives from Middle English, which in turn comes from Old French, which we all know has it's linguistic roots in Latin. It's used in the Bill of Rights amending the U.S. Constitution (you know, the one adopted in 1787?). Tunahead may also be a nimrod, but "anyone who assumes you're an idiot is probably correct" as well.
