Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I could remember Dawson's Creek, Felicity, and some other 90s shows I never bothered to watch, but not 7th Heaven. But I did pull Blues Clues after a bit of thought.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I've been getting creamed these last couple rounds. Looks like it's time to widen the knowledge base!

At least I'm perfect on math questions :geek:

I take issue with hummus being described as a condiment, since it can be eaten on its own. It is a dip or spread.

A religious upbringing would have helped with both Bells and Bible. I rang the bells category but was off in the woods for FJ.

Re: Wednesday, March 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In my experience, "backlash" refers to a reaction against a trend, such as when the public sours on a band that has been insanely popular. "Blowback" tends to refer to a negative reaction to any sort of action, such as when a politician receives angry calls and emails from his constituents for havi...

By pure chance though, two of the clues that Brad uncovered were Daily Doubles. If you really think seeking and finding DDs is "pure chance," I'm not sure you've been watching this game... or maybe you're just hard of herring. Players like Alex Jacob, Roger Craig and Brad Rutter have turned picking...

I am so sick of this. Congrats to Larissa.

I guess in all supertournaments Brad needs a game to shake off the rust. He was a real killer today.

Re: Tuesday, March 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

These boards have long since surpassed my skill set. Brad in DJ! was clearly the secret ingredient. Strangely, Duran Duran was my only miss in Music. Precalled my home state in the Lighthouse category. I have no idea which amendment any of these are. I kinda vaguely almost know them, but can never ...

I like the J! writers. British Literature? Insane difficulty. Ancient Writings? Easy pickings.

Also shoutouts to Juicy Karkass (don't Google that unless you're ok with NSFW)

The overall get rate for those tournaments is 48.29% (607/1257). The FJ get rate for the last 428 regular-play games is 49.20% (618/1256). Way closer than i thought it would be. kudos to the writers for keeping it level :) Every one is entitled to their opinion. But it's odd to dislike a contestant...

That second DD was insane. I've watched Pulp Fiction multiple times and still couldn't get it. They could have picked more plot-relevant songs. For Pulp Fiction I don't think they could have: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110912/soundtrack Arguably though, if they'd picked Misirlou or Bustin' Surfb...

Nice to have you posting here, David Madden! seconded. As for wordplay... maybe tph can get in this thread :p There are a lot of wordplay categories and they all require different skills.
