Writers, since when is the Appalachian Trail considered on the east coast?
It goes through a number of East Coast states.

Why does the horror genre exist? Who wants to voluntarily feel a negative emotion (fear)?
Why does sad music exist? Why does spicy food exist? Why does the TPH education thread exist?

Is this the same Rose Bowl referenced in Futurama?
Indeed it is -- Fry's mother bet on Wisconsin, if I recall correctly.

But you're the one with a Muppet avatar! (If I recall correctly, it's only a gong in the first season of "The Muppet Show" -- in subsequent seasons, Gonzo attempted to play a trumpet.)

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I owe an apology to my opponents yesterday: I tied patkav 6(3)-6(5) and beat trainman 6(3)-3(3). I missed both the science (bacteria) and math (witch of Agnesi) question which, quite reasonably, they assigned 0 and 1. It feels like fraud to make you assign 2 or 3 points to the stuff I actually knew...

Re: Monday, May 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm a bit ignorant of how the whole captioning process works, but I'm pretty sure it's not totally automatic for Jeopardy (because there are so many names in the 30 minutes). I wonder if whoever was captioning was copy/pasting for some reason (maybe spelling?) and just put them into the wrong spots...

I usually record part of Jeopardy and thus skip through the interviews, but didn't have that luxury today. The "I named my dog after Omar from The Wire but they have different personalities!" is one of the poorest I've ever heard. How did that get through the pre-show interviews? Because the contes...

For Randy's DD I said The Partridge Family. I don't recall the wording of the clue - was there something that leads one to the Monkees instead?
Stephen Stills was an adult by the mid-1960s. The Partridge Family were teenagers/kids (and Shirley Jones).

Re: Sports Jeopardy Still Alive

Seems weird to be talking about it being picked up by a streaming service when it was already on a streaming service -- but I guess Netflix and Amazon have deeper pockets than what's in the Crackle budget.

Beau Brummel was mentioned in Billy Joel’s “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me”, that and a mention in a very early Garfield strip has helped me get him right at least once watching J! I’d like to think that he’s also part of pop culture, way before everyone’s time, and most people don’t know him. (I w...
