Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 11, 2019

I took it for real after forgetting to take Wednesday's test. After getting 46 on the Tuesday and Wednesday tests based on posts here, I got 44 on this one so long as 'mariner' is accepted in lieu of 'ancient mariner.' No way I was getting lemonade, NOAA, or Aidy Bryant...but Saving Private Ryan cam...

Re: Friday, February 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I haven't seen her mentioned in this thread but I went with Mother Jones. Figured it had to be either her or Carrie Nation and I didn't think Leon Czolgoz had anything to do with temperance movement so I said Mother Jones. I have heard of Emma Goldman and have her remembered as a "female American an...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

No one's talked about lineup strategy so I will For the first match, I don't think the positioning matters for Team Colby. Colby might want to take the second FJ, but other than that might as well pull the names out of the hat as that team is evenly matched. Team Brad and team Buzzy have an obvious ...

Re: FJ Poll for 2/8/2019

I said Love's Labour's Lost and thought it had a good chance at being correct. I know little about the plot, but isn't it about men trying to avoid women for awhile but eventually they can't...to me that fits the line. I did try to come up with some of Shakespeare's comedies ahead of time but did no...

I would have seeded the teams

1. Brad
2. Buzzy
3. Colby
4. Ken
5. Austin
6. Julia

and TPTB put a 1 v 2 v 3 && 4 v 5 v 6 for the opening round :shock: :evil: :roll:

Re: TCONA 8

If the conference is on bad financial footing, why don't they just increase the cost of TCONA. It's still just a small portion of the whole 'vacation' cost.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I chose Philly for this last test, but I just got an email to audition 6/22 in DC. Did you choose dc for a previous test? I chose LA for this last test, but also got an e-mail for that DC audition, which I had chosen for the test before. To make sure I understand: This test your choice was philly L...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I'm pretty sure they did go to Raleigh. There was no online indication of adults getting audition invitations there, but they did do a teen audition in Raleigh. I'm guessing they did the adult audition the day before or after the teen audition day, it just didn't get reported on Twitter/reddit/this ...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

My first 0-fer yesterday. Fortunately it coincided with my dreaded matchup against a 13 game winner whose one loss was a forfeit. Steven, good call on the rope around the neck. I feel oblivious for not noticing it until now. That's not a rope; it's a torc. I did think of The Dying Gaul (which I had...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), March 6, 2018

I got 46/49 playing off the questions posted on the Jeopardy facebook page.

Same old problems with current events and pop culture as I missed 8, 19, & 27.

I said only out of 49 questions because on the facebook page instead of the video games q at 50, they just repeated the Y is for Yesterday clue.
