Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

My first 1DS for the season was Seinfeld Minutae. Kind of bummed it didn't take my response of "waitress/cashier at Monk's" for Q11, since I moneyed it and would've gotten 95 more points had it been deemed correct. I guess she wasn't technically a waitress? Oh well. Looking forward to 2 or 3 other 1...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

5 ties in 6 matches....this time against my brother, who I'm now 0-0-2 against. Last time he and I played, we tied 4(4)-4(4), while giving each other identical defense (but each answering one question differently). This time, we tied again, 6(5)-6(5), both missing the Merman question (I put Margaret...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I got beat by a certain BarrettM, 6(5)-5(4), breaking a streak of 4 straight ties. Had no clue on the Gimme Shelter, and Mr. Barrett took full advantage of my youth, giving me a 3. Also missed WoW, despite it being so popular throughout most of my time in China. I never heard students talking about ...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I'm really only posting in hopes of reverse jinxing myself. I have prided myself on my DE, which, including this season, is .710--including a high of .758 one season. This season, though, I've lost my touch, checking in at .559. Ouch. I'm more than .100 lower than my rookie season, which is the hard...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Throwing down "fruit" for Q6 got me a win. I had no idea, but thought one of the bands might have been Bananarama, so I just had to decide whether to go with fruit or "only vowel in the name is A." I got 3 points for it, and won 9(5)-7(5). Only missed the hockey question, but with my high sports%, m...

Somehow stuck around in B Prairie. Now stuck with BarrettM and GoldRF, along with my brother, HittG. Anyone else?

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I bombed both the 60s and movies champ rounds. I fell asleep doing some schoolwork that night, and my wife woke me up at 11:30 to go to bed. It was then I remembered I qualified for the finals. I ended up submitting while my eyes were struggling to stay open and did so in about 5 mins. The results w...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I was undefeated and leading my group for movies. Last night I was trying to work through answers at around 11, and next thing I know it's 3:15 in the morning. I wake my computer up and see that I never got the defensive points assigned before falling asleep. I would have won, too, as my opponent on...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Is it wrong to say it reminds me of the shape of a bunch of Chinese takeout boxes stacked on top of each other? :) Nope, I've heard people from Taipei say the same thing :) On that comparison, it seems appropriate to pose this query: Didja ever notice that on TV and film, whenever somebody or a cou...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Won on defense yesterday, 6(3) - 5(4), against the person in first in my rundle. Still in the relegation, zone, though, thanks to my ignominious forfeit the other day :oops: I had typed in all but one answer, and decided I'd think about it later. As soon as I woke up the next day I realized that I h...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

In my first match ever against my brother, we tied, 4 (4)-4 (4), playing identical defense. I missed 3 and 6 (put Zapaisto or something similar and Maltese); he missed 4 and 6. I guess we're pretty similar after all!

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

B Prairie. I don't recognize any of the names except for the few who were demoted along with me. Anybody from this board? At least I won't end up in 29th place again, given that my new rundle has only 26 players. Huzzah! Put Hitt into the search box for a hit. Yup, I'm HittM (not HittG, also in the...

Re: May 31 2017, Adult Online Contestant Test Discussion (Central)

I'll be right at 35 if they accept my random guess of "goldfinch es " for the novel. Considered Monaco, discarded it for no good reason, and put down Luxembourg instead, so I'm going to be kicking myself for that one. Also had "mitre," misreading the question / forgetting the category and not puttin...

I messaged Thorsten about this, but haven't heard back from him yet (and it's been about 2 weeks). My membership dues are up at the end of this offseason. I'm thinking, due to several factors regarding my upcoming move back to the States, that I should sit out LL73. What is the normal protocol on th...

Re: Learned League 72 - Official Thread

I'm in 93 for Maps, 14 for Atlantic, and 94 for 20th Century Fiction. A brief overview only shows me a certain RandallB in the fiction group. Didn't see any other boardies (but I don't know a ton of names) and didn't look closely for any J! names yet besides the hopefully future multi-day champ I ju...
