Re: Tuesday, June 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

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

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Attorney and presidential adviser Richard Goodwin, husband of author Doris Kearns Goodwin, has died at 86 . 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...

I picked a heck of a time to get my first 1 of the season on Matchday 24. As for the questions...One of the 9 largest companies headquartered in Europe, based on revenue?

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

43 here. It did feel tougher than usual, though -- maybe because I missed 3 out of the first 10. Could have got a couple more, but I'll take it. Best of luck to those of you taking the test tomorrow or Thursday. :)

Battle of Gravelines = huh? "Spanish Armada"? How do you get it out of that clue?! That whole category was a billion miles over my head I got it not from the battle, but from 1588 in the clue, the year the Armada was defeated.
