Re: Reretaken Down

I figure someone on here might know....I found out the other day my grandpa earned 2 bronze stars in WW II. He never mentioned it to anyone; even his wife and my dad didn't know until they were going through papers after he died. This was years ago, but I just now heard about it. Nobody knows why h...

Re: J! in the Media

It was an odd time of day to be on the course, and nobody else was there that day but my group. I teed off on the first hole, the ball went mostly sideways into some not too dense trees, I didn't think I'd find it so I hit another. When we got to the green on the 18th hole, my ball was inches from ...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Gropius? No, he’s that Bauhaus guy. Balthus? Nope. I knew it ended in -us but I wasn’t getting to Moebius at 11pm last night Cup stacking is a thing?? I put down the only sport starting with SS I could think of: synchronized swimming. I have no idea what the individual competition for that is suppo...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Somehow I guessed cup stacking : I was looking for newish 'sports' with CS initials and hit on it. The number pattern could have been related to the size of the stacks ( I really know nothing about it), so it was worth a shot. I knew Achebe as an author from Nigeria, and I knew Fugard as a playwrig...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wouldn't expect a lot of people in the audience to know the Oprah car but I was surprised to see that essentially no one knew it. Even assuming that close to 100% of them were guessing, I can't figure out why they so solidly went away from the right answer. Knew it before the MC showed up, mostly...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Hearing people “got for it” when they have NFC is no better than seeing second place go all in in FJ when a $2k bet is optimal. It doesn’t add to the excitement of the game for me; it just pains me to see weak game play. YMMV of course, but I applaud when a player walks when they’re faced with a to...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

By now, you probably hear my screams of anguish every time someone says, "I'm just going to go for it!" Disney gets to keep a lot of its money that way. I was planning on $100,000 or bust. I didn’t go there to change my situation, I went there to change my life. Seeing people go for it is so much b...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Penny's last name is a thing, so I'm not surprised the audience got into the 90s with that one. Had Malaysia instantly. Even if you don't know the history, you should at least know where it is on the map. That doesn't totally eliminate China because of Singapore's high percentage of people with...

Re: What if they changed the tournament format so that the last-place finisher in the first day of the finals is elimina

If they instituted such a rule, we would never again have to hear Alex's inevitable line that quite often the person who finishes third on the first day of a two-day final ends up winning. anyone care to take the time to find out how many times this did happen? I'm for a big no on the idea of an el...

Re: Should the Teen Tournament Winner Get a TOC Invite?

For entertainment purposes, it might make a better game with a natural underdog to root for. But what do we if a boardie (RobW) plays against an adorable teenager? Oh you cheer for the underdog, no question! (I submitted a yes for this poll, but I'd say the same even without my vested interest... l...

Best of luck, everyone!

By the way, my new hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan, is the headquarters city of LLamasoft (yes, two capital L's), a supply chain management company. And the Blue Llama Jazz Club will open downtown in the near future.

Re: Should the Teen Tournament Winner Get a TOC Invite?

My suggestion that I made on The Final Wager when this was a subject there is invite the Teen Tournament winners, but not until the first ToC taped after turning 18. (I voted "yes" in the poll since my compromise wasn't an option.) what if there are three of them at the same time? OK, first thing t...

Re: Should the Teen Tournament Winner Get a TOC Invite?

I voted no because I believe more often than not, they would be slaughtered due to the TOC level and age of material. It's not that I wouldn't want to see them try, and there would surely be a few that could pull off the upset, such as Eric Newhouse, but since those cases would be rare, I think that...
