Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

The MD 23 questions were like a breath of fresh air to me after the previous few days. Pulled off a six-pack after realizing just before submitting that the casino card holder is called a shoe, not a boot.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

The last few days, we've had a champion who strikes poses (I guess that's "character" these days) and it all seems so contrived and artificial. He's perfectly fine when he isn't trying to be a cartoon character. Are we watching the same show? I don't get that impression from him at all. Agreed. Aus...

Another Confucius. Never thought of Buddha.

My first thought was actually St. George then I realized the rat wasn't just a red herring. :D

Is Learned pronounced with 1 or 2 syllables? I was listening to the Trivial Warfare podcast and all the guests were saying Learn-Ed League
Yes, two syllables: learn-ed.

Re: Wednesday, September 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can someone name a "famous...speech" given by Paul Revere? Or really, any other famous speech associated with the early revolutionary period? I'm not coming up with one offhand...So yes, this was a little tricky since the speech was delivered in Virginia by a Virginian...but I couldn't come up with...

Well, I might as well provide some comic relief. My FJ answer was the Roc. Oops. :lol:

I thought, the kids on kids week would be insulted by a clue that ridiculously easy, and yet it was a DD in the second round.
I agree. I think it would have been fine as a top row clue, but it sure as heck shouldn't have been a DD.

Requoting to say that yesterday blew those days out of the water in terms of difficulty. Funny, I’ve really been struggling this season, but Monday was one of the days where I felt the beer was in reach, yet ended up with just 4 right because I thought Fort Knox was in TN Fort Knox is in KY, but Kn...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

So who pissed in Thorsten's cornflakes last week? Yeesh. Is this in response to SmitheeA or the 13 made inactive? Nope, just the level of difficulty I've encountered of late. Maybe it's just me, but overall league get rates have been down the last few days as well. I only got two correct both Thurs...

My wife is a figure skater, so we both laughed out loud when we saw this FJ clue.

Poll possibility for this week: I knew the proper word for the proprietor of a restaurant was "restaurateur" before Thursday's game. I certainly did not.

Anybody else snap-answer Looking Glass for the Brandy question? Yes, me. That one was so in my wheelhouse that it's embarrassing. It was an obvious defensive three-pointer, too. How many people are going to remember Looking Glass? Doh! Everyone who puts the the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundt...

Really good FJ! clue. I really enjoyed this one.
I thought it was good, too. Took me quite a while to remember Knute Rockne, then a second or two to get from there to South Bend.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Got my third 9(5) of the season yesterday. In fairness, though, tequila was my first thought for the song, and should have been my guess. (I put down Southern Comfort.) I had Southern Comfort, too. Interestingly my opponent assigned me zero for that one and I assigned him three. He ran the table, s...

Was I the only one who heard "Robinson Caruso"? I kept expecting a reversal on that.
No, I heard it too. Coming as it did so close to the Vanatu/Vanuatu question, I was surprised.
Yeah, I thought that was total BS.

I think that FJ is going to poll very high, but we'll see.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

It's been a tale of two seasons for me so far. I started out with four straight losses, but have since recovered by going 9-2-0 from MD 5 on and have risen to fourth place in my rundle. I feel like I'm due for a regression to the mean, but I'm not going to complain about that level of success!
