Unless she had already conceded the game to Matt, and was playing for second place. Me, I would have tossed in all on the table for the DD.

Re: Tuesday, January 6, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought of trumpet, but it seemed way too mainstream compared with the others in the category. I actually guessed coronet... not sure if that's acceptable or not. Poor Val. She seemed frozen in place. FJ was an Instaget. Well, not coronet. There isn't any difference between the trumpet and cornet...

Re: Thursday, December 18, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

How can you possibly shortcut "greatest common factor of 84 and 105" 105 - 84 = 21 Just kidding. You might be kidding, but this is the fastest way to get there. Obviously 21*4=84,so the next test is 5*21=?. That works, so that's your answer. If not, you'd look at the factors of 21. This method work...

Would they have accepted my answer of "baud rate" for "bandwidth"?
Don't know if "they" would have, but I wouldn't. They are related, but are measurements of different things.

Another lousy game this week. Not sure why the Finland question was questioned---Alex's explanation made no sense. The USSR was never engaged in Norway, AFAIK. Was not impressed with any of the contestants.

1 rod is .25 chains, or 16.5 feet.

Not to mention annoying our wager police.

Still waiting to see the analysis of how bad Jen's wager was. (I may have missed it, admittedly.)
I have the impression that declamation trumps explanation when Golf utters pronouncements about wagers.

Maybe Maire didn't want to bump another contestant by getting a tie that way. I prefer believing in something like that, rather than she didn't know 11x2=22. She did have chances to stop Campbell from having the lock game and she failed. She could have felt she didn't deserve a tie that would hurt ...

2. The Roast Beast question. I can't believe I was immediately told I was wrong when I was so close to the right answer. That alone would not have been totally terrible, but in the DJ round he gave Sunil all the time in the world to come up with the right answer when he really wasn't all that close...

Does that thing that Jennifer was doing tonight and last night (buzzing in quick then hemming and hawing while hoping the answer will come before time expires) ever work as a consistent strategy? Seems to me that it's worse than not ringing in at all.

Ummm, yes? If he were British, he wouldn't have been much of a traitor, would he?

He was born a British subject, you know. From the standpoint of the Crown, he was just repenting his previous rebellion when he flipped sides.
