Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), March 8, 2018

Welp, 38 (or 37 if Socratic gets dinged). This is my 8th or 9th 'pass', with so far only 1 audition to show for it. Wonder if that conversion rate is standard in everyone's experience? I think 'Socratic method' is most likely accepable given phrasing. We offered same. 35 for the wife on this which ...

Re: Thursday, January 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got Corvette. I didn't know the clue but figured a Corvette is a really well known car and might have been released at that time. I was pretty sure the Mustang was released later (1962). It felt better to get FJ off a guess than to get one I already knew. 2/3 on daily doubles. I recognized the ti...

Work too much. Drive too much. Come Home late, miss most games, declining scores consistent with age-appropriate atrophic brain changes. :(

Re: Friday, December 1, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

As a public service, let me report here that there never was a Roman emperor named "Flavian". Flavius was the family name of the mini-dynasty that followed the post-Nero turmoil, but at best it would draw a BMS if the clue wanted Vespasian, Titus, or Domitian (and the latter two names are far more ...
