Pretty cool!


I think there are some branches that are 100% non-US.

For example, SimpsonF has a roster of all Canadian direct referrals, and I got bored before checking more than the first few second level referrals before I found a couple from California. So not 100%, but pretty darn high. While exploring the list of Ontario llamas, I also discovered that there are more new llamas in our small Kingston Ontario! At this rate we might have enough for a meet-up.

Only one group out of Fro, and only one person out from A. Looks like my 5th place in B won't be enough to get me promoted. Sad.

Julia Collins's last season she was A Frontier (this was also my one and only season in A).

Alex Jacobs had a forfeiting problem, and I don't know that he ever rose above Rookie.

He was in the old A Murder back in LL55, when he beat me on MD25.

That's why I said "I wonder if..." In other words, I'm too lazy to look it up, but I'm indirectly communicating that I hope some of you already have or are intrigued enough to do it yourselves. Ha!

Looks like several of us are heading to the Prairie. In an interesting twist, I'll now be in the same league as my brother. Depending on how things are adjusted, we may face off soon. I guess you could say that if he'd actually talk with someone in our family, it would bring new meaning to being a Prairie Home Companion.

Well, if anyone's going to bring in Canadians ... :) (I didn't know here were two Chinese LLamas in my branch, that's cool!)

One of them is me, and the other is my referral. We're both Americans, though have both lived here for a long time and decided to post our current location. Now to convince him to stay on, unlike my past two referrals....

I think this is fair to say. The Pretty Little Liars 1Day is worth looking at, even if you've never seen the show.

I playtested the upcoming Gymnastics 1DS. I think the quiz stuck its landing without any intermediate falls during the routine.

Like most of the 1-D games that dig so deep into the weeds I did look at this one and NHO any reference in 12 clues nor were half even comprehensible to me.

IDK why do the authors of these things get down into the microweave in the carpet FCS Sheesh! Just another waste of my busy day IMHO... so sorry! :?

I did enjoy the Mercury 7 clues and missed a perfecta by one clue, I gave Grissom instead of Carpenter, failure to read that the clue asked for 2nd man to ORBIT vs. launch, doh! :x

Who else played the Pac-12 one day? I was shocked that Q3 (golf) played the second most difficult. What else could it have been? If anyone missed it I'd be interested to know what sport you guessed.

I got it right but tennis is a plausible answer.

Tennis, gymnastics, and cross-country all have team and individual champions.

Good call. I think I'll throw out gymnastics because, although there's probably an all-around champ, I don't think you'd say "...the individual title" since there would also be apparatus titles. Men's gymnastics also seems like a sport that would be very unlikely to be fielded by all 12 schools.

Tennis is basically as good a guess as golf, so I'm glad it never crossed my mind! :)

I didn't wind up submitting, but my guess for that was wrestling.

Same issue as gymnastics, there is no singular individual champion. College wrestling has ten weight classes.

Yep - I guessed cross country, because Oregon.

I derped on Q3 and chose "gymnastics". Couldn't come up with Kordell Stewart. My answer as "Michigan alum here. I've tried to blot that game out of my memory".

That Antarctica 1DS played much harder than I expected. I finished in the top half despite going 5/12 and missing one of the moneys.
