Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Hey, hey, whaddayaknow? NolanR caught up with me in points on MD19, and after a lucky 7(5)-7(5) tie for me (and a 9(6) tie for him) on MD20, it took 5 straight wins to stay level with him on points, but because I had the advantage on MPD, I ended the season in first! This will be my first time qual...

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

Uh... even if you DID include animated, I doubt I could get to 5. I haven't been paying attention to the animated ones either, There is absolutely no way you can't name 5 movies to come out in the past 4 years. Seriously, just put forth the minimum effort here. La La Land, Deadpool... uhhhhhh.... G...

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

So I was linked this video by a friend last night: https://youtu.be/6grLJyqIM8E I told him it was boring and I wasn't interested in anything it had to say. Even though I like dragons. Which got me thinking: what is the point in learning anything? I can tell you where every closed up Hardee's in Mic...

Re: Monday, October 30, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Excitable Boy is a classic album, with Werewolves, Roland, Lawyers, Guns and Money on it in addition to the title track. However, his last album is one of the moving pieces of popular music I've ever heard. I can't listen to it without tearing up (as in fact I'm doing now just writing this). This w...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Has anyone heard about Boston auditions? I thought with Boston being one of the four possibilities for College Tryouts that maybe they were holding off having Adult tryouts here so they could do both on the same trip. My niece just accepted an invitation to the College Jeopardy auditions in Boston.

(7/20) Liverpool and the Mersey are practically synonymous. As instaget as London and the Thames, or New York and the Hudson. The association between Liverpool and Mersey isn't nearly as well-known as the other two city/river combos in this side of the Pond, although knowing the city had to start w...

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

I am hesitant as a rule to call shenanigans, but unless Kalevala is a staple of the quizbowl circuit or something, some of those get rates look suspiciously high to me. I've been to Finland and several Finnish friends and have NHOI. And what gives with Midlands C1? A bunch of Suomi there? I couldn'...

FWIW, I had 27 + 22 + 1 right. I haven't hit 50 correct since July 1st, after a few close calls.

::smacks forehead:: (If) I coulda had a V8 question last week, my trivia team coulda had $700. The only missing answer in our final series of questions was "which vegetable is alphabetically last in V8 Juice?" I said 'turnip'. Of course my dietician sister got it when I quizzed her after the finals.

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Hello everybody, I'm Bob from Columbus, OH. I have auditioned in Columbus, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Detroit. The first in 2004 had a screening with the 10 question test, a 50 question test the next day, and then the mock games. The others were from the online tests. I wasn't picked for the Cleveland...
