Landlocked

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Landlocked

Ken, thanks for bringing that up in your blog, it was interesting to get your take on it. It first came to my attention on a Jeopardy Fan board earlier this month.
Additionally, someone over there was quick to point this out (a Final J! clue from 2010):

As their bordering countries are all this adjective,
Liechtenstein & Uzbekistan are considered "double" this.

The answer is, of course, "landlocked." And, "doubly of course," one of the countries that is doubly land-locking Uzbekistan is Kazakhstan. So I guess the writers changed their mind on its status over time.
