Re: Pavlovs parsed from the archived questions

Does anyone have access to the original zip file for these Pavlovs? I'd be curious to learn more about the frequency of various terms. Thanks! I think OP's signature has a working URL? Is that what you're looking for? Whoops! It sure does, the "Web flashcards" link. I had tried only the site50.net ...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Despite a poor last day, I finished 2nd in B Magnolia and will be back in A next season, hopefully to stay for a bit. :)

Congrats to Vermonter on winning A Magnolia and teapot37 and all the rundle-winning boardies! :D

Knew it was Stowe or Alcott, and went the wrong way. Also, it was Abraham Lincoln, not Mark Twain, who allegedly said -- according to Stowe family tradition -- "So this is the little lady who made this big war" or some such upon meeting Harriet Beecher Stowe. Except that he might not have.

Keely Smith/Louis Prima seems like a very obscure pairing unless you're over 70 years old. Curious if anyone here got this right.
Got it, and I'm younger than 70.

Said A Tale of Two Cities on the Sydney Carton Q; should have read it properly. For the Joan of Arc one, I said 1411. Ouch! :?

Came up with the Marlboro Man for FJ, wondering if the smoking-on-tv ban was around 1975 (it went into effect in 1971).

AMag is populated with 5 boardies/former boardies. We lost Colby Burnett to another league so our TOC champ cachet has dropped a bit. Looking forward to LL77!
And one boardie who was relegated to B after a cup of coffee in A. :x

Precalled isthmus as a potential term for FJ; may have also got it by remembering this from The Little Rascals :D

Not sure if his name's well-known, but may come up in regard to his writing LBJ's "Great Society" and "We Shall Overcome" speeches, Al Gore's concession speech in 2000, and his investigating t...

Thought of only Lewis and Clark, and dismissed Lewis since I knew he died much earlier than 1836. Never even considered Hamilton-Burr duel (doh!). Turns out the Lewis and Clark expedition departed in May 1804. Down goeth the FJ percentage.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I managed to finish in 17th place, despite having the second lowest TCA in A Magnolia, and being 8 questions below my average TCA. My only 9(6) win was against a forfeit, which seemed sort of appropriate. Hopefully, when I have less going on at work, I will again be able to actually read the questi...
