Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

Do I have to root for someone? Usually, I just watch hoping for a well-played and competitive game. In the parlance of AP, I like games with three Ferraris much more than ones with three Subarus. That being said, I enjoy seeing people I know playing Jeopardy, but I still enjoy watching legends such ...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Just a heads-up that my 1DS on the Internet goes live tomorrow. I've geared it to be accessible to people who aren't networking gurus, but there will be a few questions that require a knowledge of the history and operation of the Internet.

I would say the questions are matched to dollar value without a random factor. I'm looking forward to Wednesday wi...

Re: TD 396 - MINI-TD #3 - Q4 RESULTS

Had no idea what a Scottish council area is, so I just guessed a city. Same. Wasn't sure, but figured I'd name the most obscure city in Scotland I could think of. Thanks, morbeedo, for giving me the combo for my response of Dumfries. Got lucky because Inverness and Aberdeen were the other two I was...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

I recently learned that I ranked 40th among "luckiest LLamas" of LL78. This helps explain why, after 18 seasons in A Rundles, I finally managed to win one. By any measure, this was one of my weaker offensive seasons, though I did have an above average defensive season. In fact, it looks statistical...

Tomnorrow (9/25) I will appear on an episode of Millionaire as the Plus One of my pub trivia teammate Stan Jasztrebski. You can catch me there, if only for a brief time. Hopefully the question you were consulted on wasn't how to spell 'tomorrow'. Just giving you a hard time. Totally looking forward...

I was almost certain grappa was correct because I've had it a couple times and it reminded me very much of the ouzo and raki I used to drink in Greece and Turkey back in 1971 when I was young and footloose and without much bread so reduced to bottom shelf spirits. I'll have to try top shelf. Hah!! ...

The Hesse question (that I muffed) last week got me thinking about his bud Thomas Mann. Although I've read The Magic Mountain and Faustus, I have only heard about one novella he wrote, Death in Venice. Having no clue about the others (My Antonia and O, Pioneers were so unlikely to be it), I went wit...
