Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

&#$% YES! He certainly deserves it, but the fact that he's the 1st? That's just moronic. Definitely. At least that one writer who admitted he wasn't going to vote for Rivera (because he hates the closer role IIRC) had the decency to not submit a ballot, which preserved the unanimity. Or maybe he ju...

Re: Friday, January 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I, on the other hand, missed the fact they were asking about two television shows. For some reason, I was thinking one was radio. So did I, until just reading your post! Weird. I also said Ryan Seacrest, but with more time to consider it he's clearly too late to be correct. Considering I was on WWT...

Someone's gotta post it, so it may as well be me.... A new record for the most-liked photo on Instagram has just been set by a picture of an egg. Just a plain brown egg. As of this post, it has over 43.5 million likes, easily more than doubling the previous record of 18+ million. https://www.nytimes...

Re: HQ Trivia

Finally won for the first time tonight, but thanks to so many people getting free passes (though admittedly, I missed the question about Bob Dylan, and stayed in the game thanks to one), I only won $.39. Not worth setting up a PayPal account yet. Seriously, though, they need to limit the free passes...

Re: Reretaken Down

I figure someone on here might know....I found out the other day my grandpa earned 2 bronze stars in WW II. He never mentioned it to anyone; even his wife and my dad didn't know until they were going through papers after he died. This was years ago, but I just now heard about it. Nobody knows why he...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Plus I saw DHK lost to a 9(6), which I find to be um, unusual, since there wasn't a single other 9(6) in all of the other matches I track, including among my friends on there. Looking back, it's also (at least) his 3rd 9(6) against a boardie in 3 seasons, plus a 9(5) against me earlier this season....

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Yesterday was the third time I've gotten 5 right this season. I have 1 point from those 3 matches. I'm 3rd in TCA yet avoiding relegation only thanks to MPD. It's been nice to get tons of questions right so far this season, but tough for me to defend for some reason. I need to stop getting 5 right....

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Looks like I might find myself on the unluckiest Llama list at season's end. My TCA is 3rd in my rundle. Not bad. My 28 CAA, though, is 4 above the next highest in either of the C Prairie rundles, and is tied for the highest in B. That's bad. The .550 DE isn't helping matters, of course, but I'm onl...

Re: Monday, November 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got stuck on "fire," thinking of destruction by fire. Led me to Robert Frost because and his poem "Fire and Ice." Should've paid more attention to "Pond" and, more importantly, the date :oops: ...Overall, a well-played game. I'm impressed with all 3 players.

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.

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...

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. But after a roaring start to the he season, I've been doing terribly ever since. Going from first place after day ...
