I might be on my way to making weird LL history. After eight matches, my record is 1 win, 1 loss, and 6 ties--including a 9(6)-9(6) tie.
I'm just the opposite. I have an active streak of 45 consecutive matches without a tie.

Accepting "qi" has got to be one of the worst calls I've seen.
Agree. There was no ambiguity in that question. I know it's difficult to consistently and fairly score every question singlehandedly for thousands of participants, but that ruling was a stinker,

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Ohio State used to be in the CCHA with Lake Superior St. and Michigan Tech. I'm glad that there were enough people who knew about these two colleges to keep it from being in the single digits. Michigan alum here. The Wolverines also used to be in the CCHA. And the annual Great Lakes Invitational ho...

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

A player introduced as having nine trivia trophies got out on the $5,000 question today. Curly leaf and Italian (a.k.a. flat leaf) are two main varieties of what herb used to garnish dishes? A. Parsley B. Cilantro C. Chives D. Basil I mean...they told you it's used as a garnish. You shouldn't overt...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Who else put Pac-12 for Q2 of the midseason classic? I went with the Big Ten because the final lyric in the University of Michigan's fight song is the "Champions of the West". Therefore, it made sense to me that they were "The West" back in those years referenced in the question. I also correctly d...

*Minor* tweak, but the upcoming season for #23 will be the 8th.

Thanks for putting this together. It hits so many high notes from recent pop culture and current events.

Is it just me, or is it possible that John has a brother named James who has appeared on The Chase and 500

Re: HQ Trivia

They also had a question asking you to identify in which country you can see the Northern Lights. The “correct” choice was the U.S. but the other choices were the U.K. and Mexico. So, pretty much three right answers on that question.

Re: HQ Trivia

Did the Queen Elizabeth question put "II" at the end of her name? I didn't notice a problem with the question and got it right (then got out on the Halle Berry fiasco), but I saw someone in the chat complaining that the choices of George VI and Henry VIII were fathers of a Queen Elizabeth.

Thanks for posting this. I binged the whole thing today! I wasn't aware of its existence. It was fun to see all those classic contestants again. And so many of them looking so young. :)

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I finally made it to B Rundle! ...only because Horizon got diluted, due to half of last season's A Horizon moving to Olympic. I will be facing Blue Lion, tjconn, and for the first time, jjwaymee. Don't recognize any big J! champs, but a 6x and a 5x champ (whom I've beaten before) are in C. Welcome!...
