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! :)

Certainly. Probably the expected response, actually.

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...

We own a Dyson ball vacuum, so FJ was instant for me.

"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.

Is there a rule that says you're only allowed to read one of those two? :D

I love that commercial. My sister pronounces almond like that and it's always been like nails on a chalkboard to me. She also pronounces "milk" as "melk." :D

My wife said "salve" for the silent L category clue where the given answer was "balm." I don't recall the exact wording, but I'm assuming salve would have been acceptable.

Star Wars seemed tough for sure. With eight movies in the main series so far even if you've seen them all it's not easy to keep them straight.

Guessed Mars, because I know it has several named features. I thought Pluto was booted out of the solar system about 10 years ago. Status was demoted (and maybe reinstated?). Location hasn't changed. Well, actually it has continued on along its orbit. Einstein would tell us that Pluto's position wo...
