Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

BTW, am I the only one who got the R3 D5 12-pointer in large part because S22 J! contestant Alaric Smith used to post on the old J! board under a handle that was something like "The last visigoth" (which helped burn the "Alaric - Visigoth" association into my brain)? It certainly didn't hurt my get...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

From what I can see we should have a pretty competitive bunch, mostly grouped in the 100-120 tca range, with a few consistently above that number like bomtr and teapot37. I was one of many leaguewide who set a career high in tca last season, hoping the regression to the mean is a gentle one! If it’...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Loved the pinball question -- glad to see it's making a bit of a comeback as some of the younger generation is finding that physical kinetics have a very different feel from virtual reality and game responses based on computed physics. As part of our downsizing, I recently had to sell the three pin...

BigDaddyMatty has been setting it up previously- we would need a Commissioner's Circle member to set it up for this time around.
We might be SOL, then. I'm only at the Premier level myself.

New Coke didn't exist until the marketing campaign of '85, at which point Coke was rebranded as "Coke Classic" after the public outcry. Only one of those names qualifies as a retronym. Is a corporate rebranding, that's only going forward in effect, truly a retronym? The way I see it it is, though I...

I don't know what the intended response was for the batteries clue, but I think "single-use batteries" should be accepted alongside "disposable batteries."
As the author of that question, I support that view :geek:

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

For the 8-pointer, are you looking for a German word? Could it be "uber"? Nope, the German phrase written was "the Zugspitze, for example" and the Zugspitze is the tallest mountain in Germany, so the answer is the German word for mountain, which is "berg" (as in iceberg) I am a life-long, practicin...

Bah. Overthought the atmosphere question. Stratosphere's too easy for a 12-pointer, so I'll go with thermosphere.
