Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

To me, this question was a toss-up between Dewey and Truman. Since it was widely expected that Dewey would win, it seems very possible that Truman could have sent a telegram congratulating Dewey on his "win," only to find out later that the results were in his favor. As it turns out, the election w...

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I tend to agree in hindsight that the usage of “then” is a decent pointer to Dewey over Truman. However, in the immediate aftermath of the clue and particularly given Alex’s reaction to the misses, I hated the clue as it seemed perfectly reasonable to give either Dewey or Truman if you have no perso...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

The President is Missing, a novel by James Patterson and Bill Clinton, is now in stores. And within arm's reach of my chair that faces the TV. I was curious about why Patterson is so popular, so I figured this would be a good place to see his work for the first time. 500 pages and change with 128 c...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I suggest a goal for the month of june, I need some people to find epsiodes for season 1. If you go a few posts up, you’ll see he set a goal for himself of 20 games this month. Right now he is at three. Should we tar and feather him if he only gets to 19? Not sure where to suggest you find people w...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I was born in the U.P., my uncle was a professor at Michigan Tech, and my grandparents used to live in Sault Ste. Marie, where Lake Superior State is located. So, yes, I got that question correct but still knew it was the obvious 3 point defense pick. I put "chlorine" as in the generic name for the...

I make my 3rd foray from C to B. Let's see if it last more than one season this time.
Likewise I'm taking my 3rd crack at A Fjord. Had to dip down to C this time to build extra momentum coming back up, we'll see if that strategy paid off.

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

It looks like Central Park is said to have 26,000 trees, certainly seemed quite plausible that this number could be in the 9,000s. Anyone have a good reason why one should know to go benches over trees? Maybe the precise number given? Obviously every bench had to be procured and installed, so would ...

Looks like I might be alone in my incorrect WAG: pstenosis. Didn’t think of lumbago, considered pscoliosis but it sounded really silly so I landed on the just as silly sounding pspinal pstenosis

Do they film all 5 shows back to back on one day, keeping the contestants isolated so that will not know how the results of the other contestants?
That is exactly what they do. Every tournament for 35 years, to the best of my knowledge.

Re: DHKendall - did you just win $8333.33?

Looks like our boy jeff6286 was one of the 45 winners of tonight's big prize. Congrats! Thanks! After lots of near misses I finally managed to take down a (by non-Kendall standards) big one. They had a $100k Nike game a while back that had just 4 winners, and I was within one miss on q13 of making ...

Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

You could maybe explain what in the hell you're talking about rather than these constant cryptic statements. Successful promotions make people angry? Why? Is this too much to ask?

I somewhat foresaw the trouble when the Smashing Pumpkins clue came up, internally noting that if I were on the show I'd very carefully pronounce "Cor-gan" to make sure it was clear. Unfortunately Randy went the Wrong Way with Corrigan.

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The number nine given seems problematic. Per wikipedia Bush had 6, and Reagan had 5, so the number could be as high as 11. They both had a daughter die young, so if it says "had 9 living children at the time of election", it seems undeniably correct. "Had" could be read in different ways, meaning t...

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

A fascinating set of FJ wagers kind of wasted by the sole get. Dhruv's $6800 bet has two very plausible reasons, could be going for the nice round figure of $20,000, but also on a miss it leaves him with $6800, beating the leader's $6,799 by a dollar, a pretty reasonable choice in the Stratton's Dil...
