Oy! Enough negs and Lach Trash to last me several games. Good win, Rob, and a smartly played game. FJ was an instaget.

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

IIRC when I auditioned the only choice in my time zone was Atlanta. That was an interesting drive from Virginia. When I moved cross-country in 1980, my second (or maybe third) day out I drove from Williamsburg, VA to Atlanta. IIRC, about 600 miles. Long day. Slacker. :mrgreen: In '81 my friend and ...

The Knicks and the inferior baseball team's colors? Easy money. Inferior?!?!?! You trying to get banned, too?!? Hey, settle down. It was just meant as a geographical term. Not from this perspective, it ain't. Australian Map.jpeg Hey, you trying to give Opus and his ilk a superiority complex?

Learned League registration closes in a week on February 14th. So, if anyone wants to organize private rundles, now would be a more opportune time to get started.

Requesting a poll option on how many got "Riverworld" for the $2000 clue in the "More than One Life to Live" category. Philip Jose Farmer is one of my absolute favorite writers and that is his most famous work, but when I saw that clue, I was 99% certain it would be a LT, and I would expect very fe...

I don't recall ever hearing of the Apologia. I was fairly certain that Ovid wrote the Metamorphoses, but that was all I had. This. Having dismissed Symposium and Republic as inapt answers, and not recalling any other of his works, I went for Metamorphosis. This was an odd game for me, with more mis...

That was probably assured when Martin Luther King appeared in a truck commercial.
Agreed. My journalist friend and I had a lengthy discussion of when such things enter the public domain. Regardless, it left a bad taste in my mouth.

I made the same mistake with the "Great Schism" response, but I was happy to get the bottom two clues in that category. Yeah, that was kind of a dirty trick. I fell for it too. It didn't seem like "What is a schism?" without elaboration would be enough. The smart play, I realize too late, is to go ...

It certainly wasn't an Instaget for me as I initially focused on the fact that it was on the Snake River :oops: Then I next thought about Idaho and what it's known for, got to spuds and then it hit me like a freight train, still only partway through Think Music. Once I hit upon it, it was obvious, o...

Yup, and a Savage Question, too. More HQties need to watch J!, I guess. Also my second win ever, this time playing alone. It felt quite a bit like Slumdog Millionaire (I did have to make educated guesses on Q10 and Q12).

Easiest day of JI Sports for me, for sure. The Hogan Bridge and Spike Lee were gimmes, and I pulled Tretiak (would never have got Myshkin). I had a major head-desk moment when I looked at the image and said "Ah, Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin(-Hardenne)!" and promptly put the Netherlands for the an...
