So it's a combination of algebra, D&D, a military fighter jet, and a song.

This leaves me with more questions than it does answers.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got who is "Lewis and Clark Clifford Odets" right away but nearly stumbled saying it. That is quite a tongue twister. Presidents and the Bible was a kind of sneaky category name because the answer had nothing to do with the president, and the clue only obliquely included a president. It was basic...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

Apparently Æ could be pronounced Ash and A-12 is a CIA aircraft nicknamed "Archangel." If X is like the Greek "chi," the name could be Cash Archangel? It's called the ash, but is pronounced like an "a". Still, Cash Archangel would make sense as an explanation, if not so much a baby name. Been wonde...

The two teammates are legends in quizbowl, so I had to. :D

I will pick Larissa Kelly for fear of being chewed out by Jeff Hoppes at my next quizbowl tournament.

relatively easy day 2 -- but damn that wine question. (in my defense, you can't expect anyone under 21 to know anything about wine, can you?)

PARALLEL 2: this one was fairly easy US history. 4: totally blanked on this one and went with a really stupid guess in "high jump". would've been better off just leaving it blank. 6: the only reason I know Blondie is because of my history teacher sophomore year, who used to play it frequently in cla...

Kids/Teens (although I'm doubtful that it'll actually yield anything, but let's do this!)

Because I have now taken a test, I would like to be reverted to my default rank, whatever that may be.

I got 35/50. Here's what I missed. 2 scruff (left blank) 14 The Great Gatsby (wrote Puddin'Head Wilson which is nowhere near correct and to be honest I'm not sure how I decided that'd be a good guess. I haven't read Gatsby since 5th grade and don't remember anything from it, so I'm not surprised I g...

Re: Erin Zweiner in Time magazine

That makes the second J! champ running for office this cycle, I believe -- Richard Cordray is running for Governor of Ohio. Dave Belote was also running in VA's 2nd district (and had a darn good chance of winning), but unfortunately dropped out.

Re: Tuesday, September 12, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm curious if anyone guessed Bono for FJ because that is a really good wrong answer. U2 is the only act other than Adele to win each of those awards twice; however, their first Album of the Year came in 1988 (all of the other wins were since 2001). As a big fan of U2 myself, Bono did cross my mind...

Re: Tuesday, September 12, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Weak clues tonight. Charlie Chaplin in Great Dictator as a DD, Voltaire at 1600, and Byron at 2000 was just pitiful. Coryat today was 19600. 6400 at J, 13200 in DJ, and as expected all 3 DDs were correct. Took me a while to get to Adele for FJ (for some reason I was thinking of Kanye, Jay-Z, and Bru...

(Slightly OT: Anyone using the J-Scorer app promoted on these boards: is the Stats page broken for you too?) Stats is working for me. I was somewhat disappointed with the Back in Black category. Seemed a bit too easy for me. Coryat today was 18000, 5200 in Round 1, and 12800 during Round 2. I misse...
