Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

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

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

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...

Hoping I didn't renew my registration too late....got it in this morning, but it says my status is "provisional (rookie)." Anybody else ever have their stuff expire the day before registration is due? Were you able to get in that season, or no? Worried for nothing. Back in C Prairie 2 with at least...
