Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

To add data to the debate over whether they have better contestants this season or not, from Tommy Zee: Big-winner scoreboard update: With the $50,000 wins by Brandon Bidlack and Gillian West, we've officially hit 18 players who've reached that milestone. This number surpasses last year's total by ...

Re: Toughest FJ! clues Season 32 (9/14/15 - 7/29/16)

This was a tough choice for me. I got 2,8,10,12 and 13 right upon reading but is that really any indication of their difficulty? I chose the PC question because I consider it flawed. I can see the case for Stromboli and The Pantheon but went with Pandora as those facts did nothing to suggest her nam...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm guessing Mr. Kendall is able to handle this one. I was pretty shocked they burned two lifelines on it. The +1 was exactly right ... they overthought it. Plus seriously, on a low dollar question, were they really going to expect you to know what Kosovo's flag looks like? Or Uzbekistan or Microne...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

Lots of good Midwest options: Milwaukee/Chicago/Nashville/Columbus, generally we've been lucky to get more than one of those for most recent tests. I've given up trying to figure out if any one location would be more advantageous. Now I just choose whatever place is easiest to get to.10 years and c...

Absolute zero is - 273.15 C. If you convert the truncated number you get something different than the exact number.
Ah, so. I never work with the sig figs, hence my confusion.

I don't know if he could handle the speed of the game, but I would like to see Rene Nunez on J! Yeah, I was quite impressed with Lupe and Rene. Their prior experience with trivia competitions showed and they made good decisions. It'll be interesting to see how much farther they get today with no mo...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I went 8/12 on Thermo but finished slightly ahead of former Harvard physics instructor (among other things) PahkJ. I haven't used thermo much since grad school. I had one of my highest-ever 1DS finishes in "Bird Nerds OR ELSE," which was a lot of fun. Top ten finish for me in that one for me! I hav...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Congrats to my favorite physicist and husband, Boson, for his 5th place finish in Thermodynamics! Way to go, Boson! I ended up with 9/12 after badly overthinking 3 very gettable questions. As an aside, this was a far easier quiz than I'd expected. I had cold sweats just trying to recall the formula...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I retract any earlier statements about easy $50k questions. :lol: Slam dunk as that was in the news at some point last year. That question set was a breeze. Knew all answers before choices came up except $10,000 which is a likely Common Knowledge question. Agreed, although I had a moment of hesitat...

Re: Wednesday, February 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I found the Nixon clue confusing. I know the dog's name and that speech well (and can pull the "Republican cloth coat" with slightly more difficulty) but the reference here was murky enough that I was thinking about whether they meant a State of the Union speech or something along those lines. Then...

Seriously Brian? You went to Florence, but you didn't go to the UFFIZI!?! It is literally the most important site in the city. That, I think, is debatable. The Ponte Vecchio may be the most visited/viewed tourist site in the city, along with Il Duomo. And the Pitti Palace houses a number of other i...
