Re: Monday, June 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Judges .. "Sleeve" for Shoe?: "Wearable term for the box from which cards are dealt for blackjack in a casino"? I'm guessing no, as I'm surprised that I'm not finding much on Google for the term at all .. yet both myself and my g/f, who have spent our fair share of time in the casino (usually at pok...

Surprised the Dakota is running as low as it is. I am from the NYC area and named my son Lennon, so I may be a bit biased on the topic, though.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Someone explain to me why I should know that 9/32 inch is college-ruled and not wide-ruled? Because that means you get 32 lines for every 9 inches and college-ruled paper has 11 inches with 33 lines plus room for a line at the bottom that doesn't count and more than an inch of white space at the to...

Why do they always seem to make these leaps of logic when it comes to my hobbies of choice? :D

Y: The Last Man is the story of *Y*orick Brown. Yes, the Y chromosome is one of the central themes of the story, but it isn't solely or specifically the reason the title is what it is.

Re: Thursday, April 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I find it hard to believe someone without any clue, with all options available, could stumble upon Firestar... Reads more like humblebrag to me No, because if you knew you were going that deep down the rabbit hole, you wouldn't think you're writing a good clue, imo. Between this one and No Way Jose...

NO WAY JOSE?! Of all the wrestlers big and small, famous or otherwise, they picked NO WAY JOSE?!?! At least Kofi Kingston is a former World Champ and multi time Tag Champ.

Re: Thursday, April 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I love when it's blatantly clear that nobody involves in the clue has any clue about the topic. A while back they had a question about Transformers that picked a character so obscure that I had to look it up to make sure it was even a Transformer, and I'm pretty sure I could name close to 100 of th...

Re: Friday, May 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That FJ could use some copy editing. At first I thought it was asking about an English-speaking country with a Spanish article in it. The actual clue is way less interesting. Agree 100%. My suggested wording: It's the only country in the world whose English name contains a Spanish article. +1 .. I ...

I had a total blank for FJ ... I got myself stuck in "Well 1950s, so sounds like the end of a WW II movie..." :(

Today was also my worst Coryat since I started keeping track at the end of March.

Why are they interrupting Jeopardy for the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the NFL draft, when the FIRST round went on without interrupting anything? Ugh.

According to a 1990 Chicago Tribute article on a book that researched the matter, John beat out Paul, but mainly because he was much more vocal about claiming contributions in the media - and the methodology they used is obviously imperfect and debatable. George was a distant third, and Ringo, as a...

So? "Yesterday" is the most covered, and I bet you not a single soul could name any of the artists who have done any of said covers. Or anyone who's ever had sucess with a Beatles cover ever. Oh yeah? Pretty sure a lot of folks have heard of Joe Cocker, and a couple of the different Beatles covers ...
