Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interestingly, in the KJV translations, Psalms has 25 more words than Jeremiah. 42,679 to 42,654. (I downloaded text files of each and stripped out the verse numbers via a regular expression search. One of the few times in my experience when regex hasn't been more trouble than it was worth.) I gues...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I had no idea that something that wasn't a news program would be in that time slot. I was negative six days old when the last new episode of Captain Kangaroo aired.

Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I always thought Psalms was the longest book, but that didn't really fit. Plus the phrase "Hebrew word count" led me away from it. Said Lamentations since it kindasortmaybe fit the other part of the clue. As best as I can remember, I've NHO jeremiad. At least I can say I got a DD that James missed....

What tweet was that?
Someone has posted a tweet here from James that said that some people didn't play as well as they were going to after hearing about Alex's health.

Re: TOC semifinal matchups are up

I'm wondering if James's tweet from a few weeks ago is an indicator of him losing in the semifinals.

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Does anyone know if the extra days caused by the new taping schedule means that they are paying the contestants hotel bill after the first day?

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Has anyone here had to settle a scoring dispute with Thorsten? If so, how long did it take? I was marked incorrect for an answer that (I think) clearly meets the "sounds like" criterion yesterday, and was hoping to get it resolved ASAP, as this match outcome could very well determine whether I make...

Well, 'fisherman' but close enough to right.

The show's called "Deadliest Catch" for a reason.
That's both what I said an my logic, too.

I thought I was onto something when I saw that francified Germanic first name+not too long after the Franco-Prussian war would lead to this being the national anthem of Belgium. Unfortunately, I didn't know the name of Belgium's national anthem.

One of Friday's contestants is a children's book author who has also edited bestselling children's books by other authors, including my sister-in-law, Amy Ignatow. I can just imagine the amount of controversy that would happen if this FJ had been on Friday's episode.

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

The Ukraine just had an election, where a party based on the TV show Servant of the people, led by the actor who played the prime minister on the show, Volodymyr Zelensky, won a majority of the seats in their parliament. No word yet on whether or not a West Wing party is being created in the US.

I thought that "The Lottery" was a much older story than that, so I guessed Edward Bulwer-Lytton for FJ.
category was women authors
That was a big fail on my part, then. I hope I don't do anything that stupid in the LLRC.

For people who have done the LLRC before, is there any choice in which proctor each contestant gets assigned? I feel that due to my flag, that people from Michigan or who went to Michigan might pull some unfair tricks on me, and than since Thorsten went to Notre Dame, he might assign me a Michigan f...

I'm pretty keen on geography and still had no hope on Meadows. I am disappointed that my submission of "L'Anse aux Calrissian" didn't seem good enough for a BWA, though. Am I missing something? I thought BWAs only show up at the end-of-season voting nowadays. Has that changed? I remember seeing the...
