Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

That only mentions the spoon in the Owl and the Pussycat. It doesn't mention the kind of spoon the clue was talking about. And an image search only gives me, of all things, a smartwatch. Because you're searching for "runcible" rather than "runcible spoon." It's never called just a runcible. Do an i...

Is there any way to check and confirm that we get ABC rather than Little Brownie out here?
The L.A. Times produced this map in 2015, updated in 2017, but I know it's not fully up-to-date (I've seen on Facebook that the southern half of Nevada is now Little Brownie territory).

Pretty sure that stock photo of Thin Mints was the ABC Bakers version. Girl Scouts near the J! studio would be selling the Little Brownie Bakers lineup, though.

Re: Monday, January 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As I was walking out of my office, I realized that this is what the coffee table in our reception area looks like: Some of my friends got cars, but I got a subscription to what was then Broadcasting as a high school graduation present. I think they added the & Cable during the initial term of that ...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I thought there would be a lot more 12/12 scores on Tolls than there actually were. (I'm another member of the 11/12 club on that one -- couldn't remember "Poor Unfortunate Souls.")

So did Albert Einstein. Mods, please move this to the 1955 Current Events Study Guide thread. Seriously, this is a potentially confusing response because Bob Einstein's brother is named Albert Einstein, although he's known professionally as Albert Brooks.

Re: Nervous Re: Verizon v. Disney & Still Around

...I have zero idea what this Verizon/Disney/whatever dispute refers to. Verizon's contract with Disney to carry Disney-owned channels on their FiOS TV service -- including the station on which the original poster watches "Jeopardy!" -- was to have expired at the end of 2018, which could have meant...

My opponent, who is a real-life friend, gave me 3 on the Barbie question. He confessed that he confidently thou...

I was just at the grocery store and they didn't have (Caesar salads). They might still be off the shelves due to the massive romaine recall.

Their current uniforms really aren't much better, particularly the numbers, which look like they came from a clock radio.
...and of course, they proved this by wearing the worst possible version of the current uniforms today (the all-red versions, which look like they're wearing union suits).

Remember the old orange and cream uniforms? They did not inspire fear in their opponents. Laughter, maybe... The problem wasn't those uniforms, the problem was their performance for most of the seasons they were in those uniforms. Their current uniforms really aren't much better, particularly the n...

For "pinball" imagine if just one was picked? Fans of any other choice would not be happy. I think this is more important: a Barbie doll and a baby doll (both are in the hall of fame) are played with in completely different ways, but all pinball machines are played with in basically the same manner...

"Dear Evan Hansen" opened in L.A. fairly recently, so I've been seeing banners and posters and such around town.

Emma is enough of a pixie that I looked to see if she had pointed ears.

The TitanTV listings for KABC say they're showing Tuesday's at 2 am, with the Teen Tournament beginning at the normal time on Wednesday.
Thanks -- what I posted is what the DirecTV on-screen guide said at the time I posted it, but it's now been updated to say the same thing TitanTV does.
