Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I managed a rare 6(3)-6(5) tie, but could have won if I'd known the Shakespeare quote like seemingly everyone else did (I put Juliet, beau). Also missed "7th Heaven" and perro.

I had Aeneid. Sophia might need some divine intervention to get a wild card spot, but stranger things have happened. Justin looks awfully strong.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

The term "Mantissa" brought up a repressed high school memory in Algebra II class. I expect only math teachers pulled this one out. Somehow, I did keep thinking "abscissa" Huh, I did the same thing. I ended up going with "magnitude," so it seems like maybe I knew it was a word that started with an ...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I could hear "Lady" in my head and considered Lionel Richie, but I thought that his career *exploded* before the '80s. My first instinct was Richie, and I stuck with it, but this one was complicated by the fact that The Commodores also had a song called "Lady" [well, technically "Lady (You Bring Me...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Shanahan withdraws as Defense Secretary nominee. The guy wants to spend more time with his family ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ From what's been reported, the only thing worse than his family would be a land war in Asia, but now that that's what he'd likely be in charge of, he settled for the family. Ouch! And can we ...

Re: Monday, June 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

NHO either of those mounts in $600, "ergonomic" recliner, or Aly Raisman. Also didn't recognize anything in the "Good" category. Not even the voice of Judy Hopps. Doesn't look like she's been in anything else particularly notable, either. I've never heard of those red-white-and-blue popsicles being...

Said Sydney for Melbourne- still don't get the name connection to William Lamb You didn't need to know Lamb to get this one; just the Port Phillip Bay connection, which appeared in the $2K Birthplaces clue on J! just last Tuesday. http://j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6318&highlight=melbourne T...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Poll request for "George" magazine. Seems like a very obscure pick since it was only around for 6 years and I don't see any popcultural impact it could've made. Basically its pop culture impact is due to it being founded by JFK Jr. He was a pretty big deal in those days. I admit it seems a little o...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Ah, I remember that. I thought you were alluding to the movie. I guess the takeaway is that National Lampoon really likes jokes about killing dogs.

Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't think of FUBAR but did think of SNAFU, which I might have put down in desperation if I hadn't already thought of glitch. Both my wife and I had SNAFU. I put that down right away and tried to think of something better for the rest of the time, but "glitch" never came to me. I read "The Righ...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Of course I had seen Vacation, but when I think of John Hughes, I think of stuff like Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club. I had no clue he did Vacation. Dammit. I totally blew that one. My first thought was Rolling Stone, then changed it to Playboy. Didn't even think of National La...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

The Walter Reed question bit me defensively yesterday. My opponent was Canadian and I figured that would be something a Canadian would be unlikely to know. Unfortunately he did and got three point for it!

The 2015 Mattel VR product wasn't even close to being the "first virtual reality device,"
Who's saying it was? I think all the clue implied was that there was a VR product introduced in 2015 called "View-Master."

I agree that the clue should have used the word "brand" rather than "product."

Re: LL BWA Entries

The #1 game by global downloads in the iOS App Store and Google Play for 2018 is described by its maker, Voodoo Games, as an "exciting adventure of the bouncing ball through the...tower labyrinth". What is the name of that game?

I love that pinball is making a comeback. You see machines all over nowadays.
