Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Re: TD 384 - A Millennial Medley (Q9 Standings)

Bah. (Or should I say: B-a-a-a-a-h.) I had a hunch Camila Cabello might sheep. Hard to gauge others' knowledge bases (and even harder to gauge the game-theory elements of this) on such a question. As an anti-Top-40 hipster, if I knew who the lyrics belonged to, that response would have been primed ...

Re: TD 384 - A Millennial Medley (Q7 Standings)

Grumpy with myself for not coming up with Chainsmokers -- I was pretty sure Justice wasn't right, and in retrospect Chainsmokers would have been a solid guess, based on time period, subject matter, and year. "Closer" is quite an ear worm. I wasn’t positive it was the Chainsmokers, but a song titled...

Re: TD 384 - A Millennial Medley (Standings Up Through Q3)

Can we have a moratorium on all the complaints about Guy Lombardo questions? floridagator was the only person volunteering to host for a period of several weeks and for that we should be grateful. The crooner questions have reached “rake gag” status for me. It was fine the first time, then it becam...

Re: TD 383 - Numbers Game (Q1-Q3 revealed)

1. I thought Northern Exposure would SHEEP I was a little leary of that one too, but I took a chance. On the other hand, Jack Kemp was a sure fire SHEEP in hindsight. Oh, I knew Hanging with Mr. Cooper would sheep. I also figured that one of Kemp and Lieberman would sheep, and leant toward it being...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

IHOP is flipping the P and changing its name to IHOb with the announcement of the new name coming on June 11th. My bet is on "Breakfast." My bet is on “this is a stunt for a new promotional item, the name is not really changing, and everyone is a mark for taking it seriously.” It’s the “Internation...

Re: TD 382 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 8xx (807 & 808 REVEALED)

I hadn’t heard of the Patricia Portion until I checked on my answer of Kenora (the northernmost place in Ontario I could think of, which is an acronym and not someone’s name) after submitting; it turns out that Kenora District contains the Patricia Portion, so at least I was half-correct.

I can’t find anything on Neapolitan Dynamite.
I think I've seen it before.
I had to specify ice cream in a Google search; there’s also a craft beer released with that name, which affected the search results.

Also, for some of the other negs:
Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night Snack
Schweddy Balls
Rainforest Crunch
Economic Crunch
From Russia with Buzz (second paragraph under the header “Smoothies’ Legacy”)
Neapolitan Dynamite (right after the aforementioned Late Night Snack)

Re: HQ Trivia

I too won, though with a WAG on question 12. The Cavs look very competitive through the first half of Game 1 so here's hoping. I imagine the Death Lineup will get in gear shortly though. There’s no guarantee Iggy will be healthy enough to suit up this series, so they can’t depend on Lineup of Death...

Re: HQ Trivia

They found a sponsor to provide $100,000 for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, $200,000 for Game 2, and so forth, up to a potential game 7. This is going to be a stinker of a series, so it would be merciful for both basketball fans and the sponsor if the Warriors could wrap things up in five. But I won $21...

Australian Will Power (yes, for real) wins the 2018 Indy 500 https://jalopnik.com/will-power-wins-the-indianapolis-500-ten-years-after-hi-1826358192 And Aussie Daniel Ricciardo wins the Monaco Grand Prix, so not a bad day to be from Down Under. Nor a bad day to drink champagne out of a sweaty boot.

Re: TD 380 - Mother's Day - Q7-Q8 revealed

Fatboy Slim is just one guy. Also true, but I was willing to loosen my definition of "band" for someone who released what I believe to be the worst song I have ever heard. And somehow, it was picked up by one of the "Now That's What I Call Music" compilation CDs. Don’t buy those CDs; each track is ...

Re: Reretaken Down

The Army Ranger came in third in the primary. The guy with the gun came in second to make the runoff. Stacy won the Democratic primary. The insurance guy won nomination without having to go to a runoff. I was hoping Cagle would reach 50 percent, thereby sparing us two more months of ads triggering ...

Re: Reretaken Down

Watching J! through the Montgomery, AL feed allows me to see political ads that are quite different than the ones that air locally in S.F. Here are two that have run a lot recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-RkV59W_wQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwiqcZVujRc I can’t believe Nancy Pelosi ...
