Re: Friday, June 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Give credit to Amanda for writing something down just to have a response for FJ, but I can't say that I've ever heard of that one. Quite a deep cut: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suspiria I'd love to hear her thought process since she wrote her response so quickly. And, although it didn't work ou...

Re: Thursday, June 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

His get of Doug Jones was impressive. You mean the guy that was in the news so prominently throughout November and December due to the very well publicized Alabama special election?? ;) (Or because he lives in Vancouver, he might not be expected to follow US politics?). Considering 80% of us couldn...

I don't understand how that FJ was a triple miss.

Then again, Canadian geography still stumps contestants, and that's right next door.

Re: Wednesday, June 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Briefly considered the 1812 Overture, but rejected it because a) it's not a symphony, and b) Tchaikovsky was way later than that. I had been under the impression that the Surprise Symphony was called that because it ends abruptly, but it's just a sudden fortissimo chord. Went with it though because...

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

No argument from me. But, I'm not saying that there's nothing that would lead to Dewey; instead, nothing jumps out that points definitively to him, as Alex implied. Unless you have pretty specific knowledge - like the fact that November 3 was the day after the election - either response seems prett...

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

To me, this question was a toss-up between Dewey and Truman. Since it was widely expected that Dewey would win, it seems very possible that Truman could have sent a telegram congratulating Dewey on his "win," only to find out later that the results were in his favor. As it turns out, the election w...

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Most geographic sources consider the Delaware River from Philadelphia downstream to be part of the Atlantic Ocean, and therefore not making Pennsylvania landlocked. I'm glad Ali got the Joe Frazier question. Maybe they'll have one on Sonny Liston or George Foreman tomorrow. I was very surprised to ...

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wasn't a fan of the landlocked states or the drop the "i" category, but it's hard for me not to like a board that has a clue on Titian (multiple artists did a painting of the assumption of the virgin, but I picked Titian because I have always thought his version to be the most famous). I didn't n...

Re: Monday, June 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

60's kid here and the correct response probably would have never occurred to me. Part of it was my fault because I read "die" as "dye" and focused on the various toys that involved paint or ink or colored goo. Even with the right words, we didn't have that particular toy and I don't remember anyone...

Re: Friday, June 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Did anybody else say São Tomé? I know there's a story about Christ appearing to Thomas after the resurrection. Sounds like a reasonable guess. And, it's certainly closer to Africa than Ascension. I doubted whether it was correct because I don't really think of it as "off Africa's coast." But, the 4...

Another Libra guess here for the reasons others have mentioned. Pisces would have been my second to last guess. And only partly because I would have mangled the spelling and probably gotten dinged for it.

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

British English isn't an entirely different language from what I speak, though. Just as Portuguese, French and Italian, for example, aren't always that different from Spanish, which you claim to have some knowledge of. So if you saw "cozinha" when in Portugal or "cucina" in Italy (or in a Jeopardy ...
