Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I was bummed about monotremes. Within the last few months I watched a video on youtube that talked about the three types of mammals, but I just couldn't pull it. I kept trying to get "ovo" to fit in there somehow.

Re: Friday, June 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, I was way off on FJ when I went for Epiphany. It was the only thing I could come up with. At least it's a date based on an amount of time after another holiday.

Re: Thursday, June 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

At least you all guessed a Zodiac constellation. I skipped right over that, figured a good place to find a knot was on a belt, so I guessed Orion. :( Wow, I was just going to post this exact same thing. I noticed that everybody here was only posting Zodiac constellation, so I reread the FJ post upt...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

World history is one of my weakest categories, so I was really pleased to get 3 points for my educated guess of Kampuchea. I remembered that there was an album released of the Concert for Kampuchea, and back in the day I looked it up on a map because I had never heard of it before.

WPW - Thanks for posting these recaps for us lurkers/vicarious notwannabes. I'm too busy finishing last in the TD's to consider signing up, but it looks like a lot of fun. Good luck! I followed along with LL for a couple of seasons before I joined. There are levels from A-E so that you are grouped ...

If only "Think Similarly" were a competition, too!
Sheep for Your Life
For a little while a couple of years ago we had some "think similarly" games. I think they were called "match games", but I can't be sure because I'm not very good at doing searches on this site.

Re: TD 381 - Animals - FINAL STANDINGS

I really enjoyed both the questions themselves and the reveal. It's nice to see some time elapse between every few questions, so that we can kibbitz.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I thought the saran wrap question was going to be some strange scientific name, and assigned it a three. Of course as soon as I submitted and saw the correct answer, I just knew that three was going to come back and bite me, and it did.

Re: TD 382 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 8xx (807 & 808 REVEALED)

For question 9, what definition of “country” are we using? Because there are quite a few answers that I wouldn’t count as countries I thought exactly the same. If any island is acceptable, then I’d like to go with my original answer, Montserrat ;) I wasn't sure of the definition of "island country"...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

How did you guys know to start the sfumato answer with 'sf'?

Based on my knowledge of french, I thought the answer was fum<something>, but even if I got it right, I would have never thought to put an 's' in front of it.

I knew about the documentary about the cats in Istanbul because I went there a few years ago, and there were many cats around the tourist spots. They looked well fed and were very friendly.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I lost 2(2)-3(2). Last season I won all my games in which I tied in correct answers. I hope this isn't a sign for the rest of the season. You'd think by now I would be able to tease out all the hints that Thorsten puts in the clues. I knew the Christmas Island clue wasn't Tasmania, but once I submit...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

With sports being one of my best subjects and with my profile showing that I went to school in Michigan, I was bummed because I was pretty sure that I was going to get a zero assigned on defense. However, my opponent forfeited, so I'll never know. We had a total of 4 forfeits. I hope it's just a one...

I can't believe Harpers Ferry is at 33%. I thought that would easily poll at least 75.
I could point to the spot on the map, and I've heard of Harper's Ferry, but I didn't connect the two.

Re: TD 380 - Mother's Day - Q1-Q2 revealed

22. Sims [s] - 11 (+24)
22. clprez [s] - 11 (+24)
Both sims and I got the first question wrong and dropped the second, so we went up 24 places to the middle of the pack.

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

I think I may have heard of lumbago, as my dad had a bad back, and sometimes referred to it as that. I was able to connect the dots to get the plumb from the beginning of the clue, but I just couldn't make the leap to the correct answer, and I couldn't get lumbar out of my brain, so I finally went w...

Re: TD 379 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 7xx (715 & 716 REVEALED)

This TD has been maddening. With each reveal, the first question I am sheeping on, and then doing really well on the second.

I mean Cernan is a sheep? Really?!
