Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

37 for me. I felt worse than that score. Yeesh, that was rough.

Re: TD 414 - The Academy Awards - Q6 & Bonus Revealed!!

Did I not put Return of the King down for one of the bonuses? Thought I did, but also possible that I considered and decided it wasn't right.

Re: Thursday, March 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Re: TD 414 - The Academy Awards - Q2 REVEALED!!

Q2 was a SHEEP mind****. Any one of those (except Lupita's brother) could have been a sheep. I went through multiple scenarios, did some calculations on a chalkboard, and gave up and went DROP.

Re: TD 414 - The Academy Awards

This phrasing confuses me: "Name any film that earned a total of 12 nominations or more in all categories" Do you mean any film that has earned 12 or more nominations? Guess I'm confused by the "all."
