Re: Pavlovs parsed from the archived questions

Ok, tech question with a simple answer, but I rarely use any apps. I downloaded the zip file and the trivia flashcards app, but can't figure out how to import the files into the app. I extracted them all. Now what? They're just sitting in my phone's files. If someone who can help needs more info (ph...

Re: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

My 7-year old daughter just solved her first-ever FJ! It's one of her favorite books and movies. I had to help her parse the clue by asking her what book takes place in a barn in Maine, and she solved it before the end of the music!

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

BarrettM, good match. You were the recipient of a few lucky / educated guesses. When I first looked early in the morning, the picture didn't ring a bell. Later, I thought he looked familiar, and didn't think he was a member of Congress, so that led to probably recently elected world leaders. From th...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

I have a feeling this might show up on LL. New England Confectionary Company, which makes NECCO wafers (note the acronym) and the Valentine's Day conversation hearts, was bought by Spangler Candy Company (maker of Dum Dums). https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2018/05/24/614140906/saved-in-the-necc...

Re: Thursday, May 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Off topic, but seeing Larry and Claire playing again made me wonder: has there ever been a tourney where all 3 finalists came from the same QF match? I know 2 has happened several times not including this one. On topic: after seeing the word, lumbago seems very vaguely familiar. Plumbago, on the oth...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

If all the Cleveland ones are sent out, I'm batting .000 on getting audition invites while living stateside, and 1.000 on getting invites while I'm living overseas and unable to attend.

I think I'm doing this wrong.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Had I moneyed Q4 instead of Q1, I would've won the Traveling in China 1DS. As it is, I finished 5th. The whole thing was pretty wheelhouse-y for me. I've been to several places there, and those I haven't been to, I know people who have. And I lived in Q1's answer for 2 1/2 years! Brought back lots o...

Holy mess, my first ever win in a TD, and I've been playing these for 3 or 4 years now! ....and I'm still in 24th overall, despite maybe 1 (or maybe 0) wrong answer(s) this whole ring. I'm closer to last place than 6th place. Wow. Oh well, you guys can have your fight for the prize. I'll bask in my ...

Im originally from Cincinnati, and grew up eating Skyline. My wife is not from there, so on her first trip to meet my family, I made sure to take her there to see if she would like it. Fortunately for me, she did--if she didn't, I don't know what that would have done for our future prospects! :lol: ...

A great role and performance but I would have guessed Ralph Fiennes had won for Schindler's List . For supporting actor? Fiennes was nominated for supporting actor for his role as Amon Goeth, losing to Jones. Neeson was nominated for leading actor as Oskar Schindler, but lost to Hanks for his role ...

Two straight singletons and I'm still closer to last place than first. Edelweiss was the first song my wife and I danced to when we were dating, so it was also our first dance at our wedding. I had to pick it, and glad it was a singleton!

Well, that untimely forfeit put me in the relegation zone. I thought for sure I had submitted early in the morning, and didn't check my email. I even remember typing "A Pinkle In Time" as a BWA attempt for the movie question. I guess I never made it down to the submit button, thinking about defense ...

Madness. In the jboard bracket group, we had 12 entries that chose 8 different champs. 5 of those are out even before the halfway point of the second round.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Tough set for BarrettM and I yesterday. I somehow remembered reflexive to give myself the 1 (2)-0 (1) win. The Oscar question was one of the fastest zeros I've ever given....which one did you go with, Mark? I picked Rainer, not entirely sure on any of the others.

Re: March Madness

So close yet so far.....only missed Houston from yesterday's game, and they won by 2 points. Otherwise was perfect. Not sure why I picked Buffalo, but I'm glad I did! Let's see if I can have a similar result today. Seems like most years I nail day 1, only for days 2 and 3 to go terribly wrong.

Re: March Madness

Really late notice, but I just edited my bracket for LL. Realized I had done the JBoard bracket last year and submitted an entry in it for this year.....and then I noticed that I'm the only one in it as of right now. 10 hours or so to submit, or I take home the top prize by default. Group is JBoard ...
