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.

whoa. Major negbait with "Cayce." Because of the spelling I thought of Edgar Cayce and then was trying to name his occupation -- uh, Predictor? Nostradomus? Soothsayer? I settled on "healer."

Re: October 3, 2017 College Online Test Discussion

I missed 23, 26, and 49.

Though I'm not sure I would have gotten 8, 28, & 32 in time.

23 was sorta pavlov so that's something I've jotted down as need-to-know from now on.
