Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How are others finding this season difficulty-wise? Right now I'm up about 50 points on my historical QPct, so it's been easier than normal for me. Unfortunately my poor defense has left me mired in the bottom half of my rundle.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Only 35% recognize the Mercury Seven? I'm flabbergasted.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

By the way, has anyone else noticed the season projections are now missing from our profile pages? Yeah, but they're useless, so no loss. I liked the projected TCA, but otherwise full agreement. Yeah, projected TCA was really the only thing I looked at, but still not sure why it would have been rem...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I was really surprised by the low get rate on Romanov I thought about this one a long time and I can't say Romanov was something that really crossed my mind. "Rurikids" just doesn't scream Russian to me at all. I ended up putting Pahlavi. By the way, has anyone else noticed the season projections a...

Canada is an island?
Canada is not an island, but neither is Denmark. However, both possess large islands "under their domain."

I waffled between Denmark, Indonesia, Canada, and the Philippines. Only Denmark made sense given the wording. But Australia was MCWA?
Sort of strange all right. Apparently lots of people think Australia is an island or that Tasmania is a whole lot bigger than it actually is.

I honestly had no idea that TS4 even came out.
I should probably get around to watching at least one Toy Story movie one of these days. Could come in handy for trivia purposes if nothing else.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

To be fair, seaborgium, I have a lot more confidence in you being able to suss out the correct answer (or correct enough) to this than your typical D or E rundler, yet most of them knew it, too, so I've just got to assume it's something people just knew.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

You know how there's that question every once in a while where you see the results and wonder "how the heck does everyone other than me know this?" That was the UBI question for me on Friday. Even after seeing the answer it wasn't something that rang a bell for me. Weird. I didn't know it either, b...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Given all the clues in the question about Van Doren, how did that only play 14%? I completely whiffed. It certainly made sense in retrospect, but my brain just didn't take me there. Same here. The 1991 publication date certainly didn't point me to Senate testimony from 1959 and I didn't recall from...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

One of the only operas I’ve ever been to was Philip Glass’s Satyagraha . A friend of mine worked for the Met and had an extra ticket. My only distinct memories of it are that it was quite long, very repetitive, and generally just not my cup of tea. I’m slightly more grateful to have seen it now, as...

REDACTED BY MOD Please don't post - even in frustration - about live questions. TPH is off to a great start! First he forfeits his first ever match and now he's apparently posting about live questions? ========== I already mentioned this on the LL message board, but that synchronized swimming Q yes...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I admit it look me a minute or two to connect the dots on the "Diff'rent Strokes" question, but I got there. Still lost 6(5)-8(5). My opponent knew the pop singers' nationality, which I thought was clearly the most difficult question of the set.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I've had a shot to win A Fjord in each of the last 3 seasons, missing by narrow margins in the final week. Now that I only have to finish top 3, I'm expecting to have one of those "highest CAA" type seasons and finish 15th or so, but we'll see! I'd have no expectations of winning the championship o...
