J is for Jeopardy Calendar

I love Jeopardy.  Every year I buy a Jeopardy calendar, the kind with 365
answers.  Each day I religiously attempt the question and give myself the amount of "money" it's worth.  On Sundays, which is Double Jeopardy day, instead of betting, I give myself $800 if I get the question right.  So far this year, I have made $56,400.  My goal is $200,000.  Last year I almost made it. 
Want to make some imaginary money?  Here are some Jeopardy answers.  Questions are in the Comments section:
