Re: Friday, November 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm not sure I would have gotten FJ if I hadn't seen the viral video by Randall. Still one of the funniest videos ever, IMO. :lol:

Re: Thursday, November 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Do you think Maya totally spaced and just assumed she could bet as much as she wanted as long as she stayed ahead of her opponents' pre-FJ totals? That's the only thing I can think of. She just totally forgot that they could double their scores.

Re: Thursday, November 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, did Maya just completely forget how the game is played?? It worked out but wow, that has to be one of the bigger near blunders we've seen in a while I hope the first thing Alex said to her after the game was "you realize you don't get to keep the semifinal money, right?" And I'm certainly not...

Thorsten threw us a bunch of softballs on Day 1...I know the rest of the days won't be like that.
Interesting you say this because I thought it was extremely difficult and kind of a gut punch for day one.

Opus being the singular form of opera is a datum worth remembering. This is true pretty much regardless of your criteria. There will be no need for an erratum regarding this post. Nor will there be a correction in any of the appendices or indices. A running joke between my wife and I is that the pl...

Re: FJs for the 11/5/18 week

:mrgreen: :cry: :cry: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Not really sure about Tuesday's FJ. I forgot that show was preempted, so I read it for the first time here in the poll and blurted out "A1" without much thought. I think with 30 seconds I may have remembered C1, but hard to say.

Re: Wednesday, November 7, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Grumble....thought WAR was wins against replacement. No chance in Hell, Heaven or any other dimension of coming up with FJ. Same here with "against". I am reasonably sure that I've heard it that way. You may have, but it's certainly wrong. The stat is supposed to measure how many wins more (or less...

Blanked on FJ. My wife told me afterward that she mentioned it a few months ago as something I should commit to memory. Once again, she was right! :)

Re: Wednesday, October 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Like Adam I said Goldfinger for FJ. I'm sure I was influenced by thinking of a James Bond movie as a possibility during the commercial break. Psycho didn't cross my mind, but it should have considering it's such a J! favorite. Sounds like using chocolate syrup for blood in Psycho is pretty well-know...

"Believe," -- the latter, anyway, is a fantastic song.
No accounting for taste. I've often cited it as my most hated song.

For FJ Bloemfontein came to mind immediately, but it took me a few more seconds to realize what the connection to roses was.

Guantanamo was already a correct response in the Prisons category earlier in the game.
I thought so, too, but turns out that was Tuesday's game, not Monday's so you might want to spoilerize it.

Re: Monday, October 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I feel like this FJ was essentially a "you know it or you don't" type. Yes, I'm sure it was possible to use the hints and come up with it, but I'm skeptical that many people who had never heard this fact before actually came up with the correct response. I did not, by the way. I think you're massiv...

I know the Beowulf story pretty well and still put down Beowulf on instinct and didn't think any more about it.
Ironhorse wrote:I said Beowulf. I never actually read it in high school; we read Sir Gawain and the Green Knight instead.
Is there a rule that says you're only allowed to read one of those two? :D
