So from what I'm gathering that GDP clue was just a garbage clue?
No
There was nothing wrong with the clue, but it could have been made a bit clearer by putting "growth" or "increase" in the clue and therefore keying GDP as the correct response.

"Thug" was easier if you remember Temple of Doom - the Thuggee cult and their worship of Kali was prominent in that film.
There's a poll on the LL forum asking how everyone got this one. It was all Tupac's "Thug Life" for me.
I didn't choose based on "Thug Life." Thug life chose me.

Re: TCONA 8

I will definitely be there for my fourth TCONA, and I encourage any fence-sitters to get in on the action. It really is a fantastic experience.

I'm not sure yet where I'll be staying, but if I end up at the Trop I'd be happy to host a boardie get-together.

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

I know the names of all the chess pieces in both English and Spanish. But not a single one of those sounded even remotely like any of them. Queen is Reina in Spanish. I guess that wasn't close enough to Rainha. There you go using "sounds like" again. Um, no. He didn't. You did. Seriously. "It sound...

I think that not accepting "Roosevelt Doctrine" for "Roosevelt Corollary" is ticky-tack.
