Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Oof. This feels like it's just going to be one of those seasons. Already have 2 losses thanks to poor defense, and my other loss was just a thorough whipping. My DE is an unsightly .364. Not sure what's going on, but it ain't been pretty this week!

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

With a couple of lucky guesses, I ended up getting my 2nd ever 12/12 on a 1DS (Things You Learned in Kindergarten). Ended up in 5th, but if I had moneyed any of #s 3, 9, 11, or 12 instead of #2, I would've won the thing. Oh well, them's the breaks...but I'll be happy with a tie for my highest-ever 1...

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 in...

Re: FJs for the 9/24/18 week

I didn't see Friday's show, and played FJ off the board. I'd like to think I'd have gotten it with help of the impersonation, but as it is, an embarrassing miss thanks to a brain freeze.

Brain: "Oh, that one word has something similar to Suomi in it. It's Finnish!"

Fingers: "S-W-E-D-I-S-H"

Fortunately, I still won 5(2) - 0(1). But yikes, that was terrible.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

It took me until this morning to figure out what the heck Thorsten was going for with that Lord North question. Yeah, I guess there was no Lord Ottoman. I ended up in the wrong war. I guessed that he was looking for the Civil War and after some though put Lord Grey. Same, well, I went with Earl Gre...

Re: Friday, September 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I missed this game, and sad to do so, because this is the first time I've known someone before he/she was on the show. I won't get too specific on here for various reasons, but I used to know Riley's family when I was in undergrad years ago, and I can't say enough nice things about them--they're gre...

I didn't catch the autocorrect on my phone this time. I accidentally put "Baller" and Gates. Hey, he owns the Clippers, is that really inaccurate? At least it didn't cost me the match.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 5 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

:oops: I worked for the census one summer as an enumerator, one of those people that goes from house to house to ask the census questions to the people who didn't send their forms in the mail. It was actually really interesting, and I'd consider doing it again (it was decent money for an easy side j...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

I have the 2003 ToC to thank for Burghers of Calais. Anyone else? I don't know where I heard of it, but I know I've heard it enough to automatically think of Calais when I saw Burghers. Not until after I submitted and I looked it up did I actually know what / who they were. I'm thankful for the wor...
