Re: Friday, December 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

got to love the dude in 2nd place not going for the highest valued clue remaining on the board with less than a minute to go and allowing for the game to be locked as a runaway...not even giving him a chance to win

Re: Wednesday, December 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Famous Women and Read It went entirely over my head. Had no idea there was a Pequod in Moby-Dick, and "Flo Jo" rings no bells. However, I ran 3 Letters. For some reason, I constantly blank on where the Caribbean is. Any way to remember that? Most of DJ! just felt like word salad to me. Didn't recog...

Re: Tuesday, December 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought it was common knowledge that the Psalms were songs, to be accompanied by harp. I guess that's common Sunday School knowledge...though I think we once discussed it in a Bible as Literature class too...I never considered another response... i thought so too seeing i got it right and don't k...

Another Ecclesiastes here. Never would have come up with Psalms. Missed the first apostle one last month and now today's. I'm getting the next one right or I am going to downgrade the category on my favorability meter. i have got quite a few bible clues lately and will never raise it on my favourab...

Re: Tuesday, December 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

25 second solve for FJ. I was able to quickly eliminate the first five books, all of the ones named after people, and ones like Jugdes/Kings/Chronicles, and ended up with a Psalms/Ecclesiastes coin flip that landed right. The 1-day champ carousel is starting to spin... i am a fan of the one and don...

Psalms seemed to fit the bill, but I wasn't understanding how such a short word could mean a five word phrase. But I had nothing else, so I stayed with it.
i was 2nd guessing myself because of that as well

Any reason I should know what kind of lettuce is used in a Caesar salad? There are lots and lots and lots of types of lettuce, and none seems more obvious than the other. NHO garbanzo beans, swiss chard, bearnaise sauce, or tarragon either. HOW do you know all this ultra-fancy food?! Word Origins f...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

For $10,000 today, a contestant had to name the disputed region between India and Pakistan. (The choices were Bhutan, Kashmir, Kathmandu, and Hindu Kush.) That seems way easier to me than what car model Oprah gave away. way easier....never heard of hindu kush...thought it was some sort of drug strain

No way I was missing Cosmo, but I don't see how you get it without having seen the show Disagree. It was very much part of the pop culture lexicon in the show's heyday. Yeah, I guess you're right.
