Re: TD 361 - Squares and Primes

The nice thing about having an alphabetically-last user name is that my position can only improve from here! ;)
Good luck everyone!

Re: 2017 Current Events Study Guide

Officer Said He Fled Turkey, Carrying Evidence of Corruption While not something that would generally be a Big Deal in American news, this could have political implications in Turkey , which is still (for now) one of the US's biggest Middle Eastern allies. The TL;DR here is that a police officer fr...

They haven't done shopping for about 30 years. I mean, who didn't secretly want a ceramic dalmatian?
IIRC in season 30 they had their one remaining ceramic dalmatian hidden among the studio's background props as an Easter egg in every episode.

Re: Monday, December 11, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Apologies to all the Star Trek fans I pissed off with my response tonight. It was kind of a Hail Mary since it was late in the game and I wasn't getting in on many questions and had to do something, and I knew Data was the name a TNG-era character so I went with it. Well, if it's any consolation, t...

(LL75 MSC) 6/12, 311pts (63%, T-1492nd/4138) Took a wild swing on Q2 with GULAG and cackled like a hyena when it came up correct. Cottage pie was an insta-get for Q4 as it is one of my favorite dishes, both to prepare and to consume. Golgi for Q5 took over 24 hours to drag out of my brain, and was ...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Not recalling your nom de Llam', I can't check if "scull" was accepted or not, but I'm guessing that it was, and that the commissioner didn't want to penalize people who figured out "scull," thought the question compelled a suffix, and chose the wrong one. Why do you say that? If it's the counterpa...

My only question on the trip to Hawaii is whether Bobby invited his two lovely competitors to join him. :lol: They do let you practice spins, and in fact, you play an entire practice game. However, they stop the wheel manually when you do it, so you can't get a feel for how big your spins are. I did...

NHO WoF.
It's when you don't get anything right on a LearnedLeague match day, but you win by forfeit. Usually it's spelled W000F though.

Remember that Theresa May's accession to PM didn't happen until after the "Brexit" referendum on 23 June 201 6 , which is what toppled David Cameron out of the spot and made it available for May. The drama following "Brexit" also led to the viral musical meme "Cameron's Lament" , which is one of the...

This would have been tough without the word "European", but the clue as written was a lay up.
Agreed. This became an insta-get, given that tease-out.

OK. But when 100 million US households watch Fischer-Dieskau hum a little ditty on an annual basis, we can drill down to that level of detail. There's a balance here, and the only point I'm trying to make is that those six players are at a level of maybe knowing the presidents. If you don't know Ca...
