Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I got credit for "sura", which I could have sworn I have seen as an alternative spelling. I, too, was really surprised by the low get rate on that one. Fourth season in, and I've always been afraid to ask: What is generally considered a good DE %? I had sura, too. I dont think that I was conflating...

Thorsten threw us a bunch of softballs on Day 1...I know the rest of the days won't be like that.
Interesting you say this because I thought it was extremely difficult and kind of a gut punch for day one.
I did too.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well done indeed, morbeedo. I would have done exactly what you did on the $50K. Your description of your experience reminds me of a comment made by Bob Harris in his book. People watching the show have no idea how tense and pressure-packed the onstage experience might be. What looks simple and easy ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Nicely played, morbeedo. I really enjoyed watching your (first) episode. You obviously didn't hear me screaming at the TV about Bardeen, but as a scientist I've got a bit of an advantage there. I also really enjoyed your banter with Chris. I think that one of his best qualities as a host is his abil...

Well, I'm in the lead for a trophy... unfortunately, it's the Dawkins (most MCW). Pulled Japan, Langston Hughes, and stone/iron/bronze yesterday. You and me both. Well, I did get the right order on the ages, but made up for that by having no idea on the Dick Van Dyke intro (probably been 50 years s...

Re: TD 402 - The TD Strikes Back

For the following rule: "The score for an incorrect answer is the SHEEP score, which is the most popular correct answer for that question plus 5 points." Is there supposed to be a comma after "that question", or are five points added for anyone whose answer is the sheep? I think that you can safely...

2018 inductees into the Toy Hall of Fame: Magic 8 Ball, pinball, & Uno
Does this make any sense to you, Mark? It seems to me that if all pinball machines get inducted as one, shouldn't all dolls be considered one entry?

And, once again, Rundle in the Jundle looks to be a mine field: 9 A Rundlers, 3 B Rundlers, 1 C and 1 D. Good luck to all and may the best JBoardie win! I just looked at the rundle and realized, to my growing horror, that I was the only D Rundler among so many As and Bs (I missed the C Rundler but ...

Thanks for smithing this. Looks like fun. I may be overlooking it, but I don't see a link for where we should post the answers.
That's because, as is stated in the instructions, you are supposed to submit your answers by PM.

Re: HQ Trivia

Ugh, I made it to tonight's final round question. I knew Susan B. Anthony was the "obvious" answer, so I went with Martha Washington. Pocahontas would have netted me $59. I made it there, too. I was sure that Martha Washington was the first woman pictured on US currency, but some Googling after the...

Re: OT: Balancing acts

All, So I kind of hesitate to ask this because of the personal nature of it and it being in a public forum, but oh well. This is a well-educated community, and I want to get answers from people outside my school. I'm in my 2nd year of PhD studies, and perpetually feel as if I'm barely scraping by i...

The form is telling me that the answer to question 2 must be a number. That's going to limit the number of possible choices. :lol:

I've just been wondering, does anyone know if the $1,000 audience contestants are still eligible to participate in the future as regular contestants? I have no idea, but do you know what the odds are? Especially if you're not young and pretty/handsome? Pretty small that you're picked for either, an...
