Re: FJs for the 5/14/18 week

The Trojan Horse wasn’t coming to me on Wednesday; I guessed Mt. Olympus. (P)Lumbago did cross my mind during the think music on Thursday, and I immediately dismissed it as a made-up word. Clammed on the shark.

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 ...

“Zayden” has to be made up.
Aren't all names made up, though?

Probably shouldn't pick your kids' names while playing Scrabble tho.
Why not? qkmozxic sound like a great name to me! :lol:

I credit my Singleton on the Disney question to the Defunctland YouTube channel. I learned about many Disneyland attractions that no longer exist through those videos.

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

The Phoenix Suns, owners of the worst record in the NBA during the 2017-18 season, won the NBA Draft Lottery, thus being awarded the first pick in next month’s draft. This is not newsworthy in itself, except for two things: 2018 is the last year for the NBA Draft Lottery as currently devised, as the...

I don’t watch the syndicated WWTBAM, and I’ve lost track of who the host is, but he must be better than Clarkson...right?

Re: Monday, May 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The fact that Charlotte was described by Cornwallis as “a hornet’s nest of rebellion” weighed on my decision-making, but I didn’t think the city grew in prominence until after the Civil War, so I went with Charleston instead.

Re: TD 378 - K.I.S.S. (Final Results)

Prompted to name a woodwind, the answer is always oboe, and I don’t know why. It certainly isn’t the most prominent instrument in contemporary music, and there are no famous oboists; the only person I know of who plays the oboe was a porn actress. It's the double-reed thing; it differentiates it. E...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

In a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court has ruled the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 unconditional. The law, which placed a federal ban on sports betting in states where it was not already established (namely, Nevada), was challenged by the state of New Jersey. It, along with al...

I knew oboe would sheep, but I needed the sheep insurance more for the animal groups question. (Speaking of sheep insurance, that was a really cool wrinkle to this TD.)

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

The Hawaiian islands are generally larger the farther south and east you go because the "hot spot" that has been creating them is moving that way. The island gets built up, the hot spot moves away, and the island begins to erode. Also, how long the hot spot is under where the island is created affe...
