Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ, but I had an advantage. I went to see a pair of Albee's plays produced at my university in 1977. They were The Sandbox, and The Death of Bessie Smith. "Bessie" was one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen in my coddled life, and I was crying smeary tears as the house lights we...

Re: Tuesday, October 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Had no problem with FJ. Mom to the Custer negbait, but had to be Wild Bill given the context. Also had issues with Morse Code phrasing. Knew that was what they wanted and would have said it, but felt like it was so obvious it couldn't be right. (Not sure if that made sense, but maybe.) Actually howl...

Re: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

You guys have been much nicer than I expected. Or felt like I deserved, frankly. Appreciate that. At what point in the match did you go to yourself, "Haven't I Zuffered enough?!?" Right when he found the 3rd DD. My world went black. All the high-dollar clues were gone and there would be no recovery...

Re: The Rankest Thread Imaginable

I don't know what's appropriate. I don't want to be "one and done". Maybe I'm in denial. "Bucket list checked" makes me feel too old. "Got the tshirt!" Seems like the closest to what I think I want. "Silver medalist"? Kind of like that, too. Reflects the feeling of having won just to get selected. A...

On any other day, Barbara. Any other day ... I think I only got Twisted Sister in the Metal category. I almost said Twisted Sifter, since that's a web site I follow, but I managed to spit it out correctly. You are too kind, alietr, but I agree.

Re: LL BWA Entries

Wait a minute. Isn't that "A Funny Thing Happened On the Way To the Forum"?

Maybe I'm missing the joke.

Edit. Yes, I was (missing the joke). Sorry 'bout that. I call it "Panacea does Broadway" cuz that was my first musical, ,I played Panacea, and of course, the ancient world revolves around me...

DD: 2/3 FJ: :mrgreen: Mixed up the Napoleon islands, but noticed St. Jean Baptiste Day Upon closer inspection, Jason's bet probably wasn't optimal either. Wagering 100 less would have prevented Helen from overtaking him on a triple stumper and guaranteed no less than a tiebreaker if he got it right...

It’s me! Can’t wait to watch tonight! Re:FJ i thought of Jackson immediately, but realized he was the “obvious” one since the $20’s been in the news. I was crushed so I needed a solo get for 2nd and decided to veer to another possible but unlikely answer assuming Heather would answer Jackson given ...

Re: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

However, the "black bird" weapon was the stealth bomber not produced until decades after 1945.... Not quite. Blackbird was the SR-71 plane that flew much farther above earth than previous reconnaissance planes, but I don't think it employed stealth technology (which iirc was introduced in the 1980s...

Re: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FWIW John Huston's screenplay refers to "the fat man" 27 times. The original novel , 80 times. My recollection (which of course is spot-on almost always :roll: ) was that Spade referred to Gutman in the movie any number of times as "Fat Man." Interestingly my first thought for this FJ was the "blac...

Feel fortunate to have gotten this FJ right. Never seen the film in question, it took me a few seconds to connect on atomic bomb, and needed the coin flip to fall the right way. A get's a get. *shrug* When Jason’s run is done, I feel like he’ll be remembered as the Curtis Martin or Frank Gore of Je...

Re: TD 431 - Abbreviated Version (Q1-Q6 revealed)

I think I'm thinking too hard. Every time I have a choice, I try to game out what others will answer, and choose the lesser. And every time I do that, I end up sheep or near-sheep, leaving obvious answers not used or singleton . So sourly amusing. Good quiz, though. Operator error, not writing. Than...
