I first learned the show existed a week ago. I went 0/12 because I couldn't remember who played Mrs. Garrett.

Does anyone know how group selection works for mini leagues? I was looking through the players in my group in the Extracts ML and noticed 7 of the 12 were in an A rundle in LL71. I thought that seemed like a strange distribution if any kind of "balancing" was used in the selection.

I responded to the Bartleby question in the Short Stories 1DS with, "I would not prefer to." Ouch. I moneyed it too.

It's random. There has been much discussion about balancing but, for reasons unknown to me, Thorsten has never seemed to be interested in doing it.

Today's the Calvin and Hobbes 1DS. I'd have been devastated to miss it, so I'm doing my small part to get the word out to those who'd feel likewise.

I just played along with the Just Images TV Kitchens and Just Images Legs 1DSes, and those were pretty delightful. I only missed one kitchen from a show I watched, and I got two from shows I've never seen. I was hoping the Gerhardts' kitchen from Fargo season 2 might show up, though. Of the 8 Legs questions I got right, I didn't need the pictures for most of them, and I finally remembered Terry Fox's name, though it took me a few seconds longer than I had for the recent J! clue I missed.

EDIT: Also, the Just Images Portraits ML is hilarious.

After 5 match days, I'm in 2nd in my social sciences group...complete with a whopping .000 defensive efficiency. Seriously. My opponents have gifted me 3 0(0)s, 1 forfeit, and my only non-win was a 5(2)-4(2) loss. Surely this can't last....

Performing better than expected in extracts. Not too hot in JI Portraits, but I don't recognize many famous faces anyway. I'm just really enjoying the questions and their creativeness.

Thank you for this reminder, lots of fun. Let my 7 y/o son do it on paper, never been more proud.

Thanks, Andy! The only one that I was anywhere near iffy on was the Calvinball question, but that quickly dissipated. The real challenge was in the moneys: the only one I was completely certain from the get-go about moneying was Watterson's alma mater. I ruled out the questions dealing with the first and last comics, figuring those would be better known than any one comic in between. I ruled out the ones dealing with things that recurred throughout the life of the comic, so the two side characters, the alter ego, and the cardboard box were out. (The Calvinball question didn't count, since the particular detail the question asked for was only explicitly mentioned once as far as I could remember.) That left five questions for my four remaining moneys, and I ruled out the 2014 comic question, figuring anyone still aware of newspaper comics could get that right. This left Calvin's report, Calvin's dad's job, the Calvinball accessory, and the magazine, all of which worked for me as moneys, since those questions had the fewest relevant, non-landmark strips pertaining to them. (Again, Calvinball is an exception, but it was merely a visual detail to which verbal attention was only called once.) I had the most trepidation about the "bugs" report, because the climactic panel is so iconic in my mind, but it was a single arc in the middle of the comic's history, and there was nothing I'd ruled out that I was willing to trade for it. Perfect score!
