Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Photo was taken at "The Wave", a famous rock formation in Northern AZ. Not easy to get a permit to - half by advance reservation, half by daily lottery. Round trip hike is about 6.2 miles, and requires the ability to follow a route marked by cairns over slick rock. Brutally hot in the summer time, w...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

I kind of wonder: how many people who have a problem with "masks mandatory" rules don't think twice about the "no shirt, no shoes, no service" signs?

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

The final question on today's rerun was "What continent lies in all four hemispheres?" The answer was Africa, but I can't figure out why Asia wouldn't be right as well. Indonesia crosses into the southern hemisphere, and Russia stretches into the western hemisphere near Alaska. Indonesia is sometim...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

For those of you living in the LA area, if you haven't already, I'd strongly recommend you try out for Master Minds. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd9yECf_nKi7VGzGDYf5qtAoHdWWrCNpial3r5dLS9ZwO2ezA/viewform Though I've never really had a bad experience on any of the game shows I've been on...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Some tidbits about my Master Minds appearance: - I knew that Nino was a previous J! contestant from talking to him in the green "room", which made me a bit nervous. Had I known at the time that Shawn had been one as well, I would have been even more so. - You may be wondering if my "deer in the head...

Considered missionaries, but assumed he was talking about a more specific group, and went with Red Cross.

I don't like this FJ clue.
Agreed - I got it, but didn't like it.

... I know the wives of VII are a J! favorite. Why did I not memorize them? And why did I not think of using "divorced BEHEADED died"? She's the only one that was beheaded - and I literally saw a musical about the six wives just a few months ago! ... It's Divorced-Beheaded-Died-Divorced-Beheaded-Su...

Sitting here with an open correction suggestion about whether "thirtysomething" should start with a capital "t" or not.

The archive is inconsistant, and I guess I prefer it that way. Close tab.
To quote Jeopardy! quoting Emerson, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds".

Re: Tuesday, January 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

No guess on FJ! Didn't see the slightest bit of a TOM. How did this go 2/3? What even was the tipoff?! Didn't know the answer off the top of my head. My reasoning was: Devon is an England-related name. Canada is the largest English-speaking country by area, and a large part of it is islands in cold...
