Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Self promotion zone: LL One-Day Special: Doomed Voyages , smithed by CavaliereM This was very fun and accessible, thanks! I did it while half-asleep and didn't trust my better answers, so moneyed badly. Got 9, 4 of my 5 left out were better moneys, is what I'm trying to say. Enjoyed it anyway. Well...

Re: TD 447 - Grab Bag (Q3-Q4 Revealed)

I'd take a retroactive drop if it were offered. Didn't use mine either, and there I am, with a broom behind the parade. Yeesh. :D .

It's The Outchange. You're not usually snarky, so I'm guessing I didn't get the joke. He's making fun of a poster who expresses himself in word salads, who really made himself known during a spate of female champions with a thread titled "An outchange for the worse in the 2014/2015 ToC?", in which ...

Re: Learned League 84

In 2nd C Savanah D1, playing 1st today. Should finish in promotion zone at this point regardless, but not counting chickens. Mathematically could win my rundle, but more chickens.

Re: Learned League 84

I was very lucky that Thorsten accepted "news reels" instead of film. I knew that Pathe was a major newsreel producer but after I sent in my answers I kicked myself for not reading the question accurately (it was looking for something more broad and general). "News reels" was surely enough to ident...

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

They have such an enormous pool of test-takers who never get an audition invite, it raises the question of why they felt an anytime test was necessary. Ultimately, of course, it's at their discretion. an interesting take on the situation; totally agree they don't need to do more to get their contes...

Re: Friday, February 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Think I'm in a pedantic mood this evening. Not sure how Becket or peas and carrots are TS, either, but the thing that bugged me enough to mention it here was how FJ was written as superimposed over the players and music. I didn't see it fast enough to know if the actual reveal had the same error, an...

Why is it I always agree with you? So amusing.

I like all the mods here, but you're something special.

Sidebar to Floridagator just above. Massive boo on your entry, which made this one necessary. Lol!

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Missed the episode. Confused by the wording of the nor’easter clue — my degree’s in meteorology, and I grew up in New Hampshire, and I think the more precise wording would be that the predominant wind comes from that direction (on the north side of the low pressure system), or that the storm itself...

Re: Help with a Jeopardy-themed marriage proposal

Hmm. I like where you're going, creatively and conceptually, but please don't make her the equivalent to a female sheep in your marriage proposal. Baaaa-d idea, from a woman's POV. Hilarious to a guy, I'm sure. 1. Though his full name is one of the most famous in all English literature, his friends ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Was very stoked to see the Booknotes question -- it's a show before my time, but I happened to visit its online archives while writing a couple of history papers years ago. TV is not a strong suit of mine, so it felt good to get an obscure one in that category. From anyone who got the W. C. Fields ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Age was probably as important to whether you knew "Soul Train" as much as TV knowledge. It's hard for me to imagine anyone close to my age (49) not remembering it. I think demography is also a big factor. I'm aware of the show only as a pop culture reference from SNL skits or whatever. I expect Sou...

Re: TD 435 - Narrowing Nine (Final results)

Just to close the question I raised above, clt013 and I have been corresponding in PM, and, while Ft Dodge once earned Primary Airport status (for at least one year this decade), their emplanements have dropped, and they are not currently designated as such. So I have conceded the question I had abo...

Did the word "anaphylactic" sound a bit mispronounced to anyone else? Like she was trying to say "anaphylaxis" at the same time, almost. It was clear she knew the answer, but it didn't sound quite right to my ear. I'm sure Andy will mutter under his breath at me for second-guessing the judges, but ...

Re: TD 435 - Narrowing Nine (Final results)

Ok, I totally stunk this up.

However, please look up Fort Dodge, IA airport They qualified for Primary status and are quite proud of it, because it came with federal grant money for airport improvements. I would like to have earned a singleton, please, just for pride.

Re: LL83: Learned League

I had several lucky guesses this season, and yesterday the piper came to collect. Peru or Colombia? I thought the border was more straight and, recalling that Ecuador "carves out" more of Peru, I went with that. 99 is someone super-famous, so much so that even I should know him. I think Gretzky and...

Re: New contestant coordinator with an interesting history

I'm resurrecting this thread because Aimee was on my team last night for a trivia contest run by Atlas Obscura (we won, but along with 2 other teams out of 20 or so). It was an all-J! alumni team. I had remembered this thread from when she got the J! job. I won a free drink ticket for correcting on...
