Re: Meanwhile... in the Green Room

I would not want to be forced to watch a movie I didn’t want to see. Do they have movies in there for the regular players? Regular players don't have to be sequestered. It's just the first week of tournaments where you don't want the players to know the scores of previous games to affect the gamepl...

I'm only 33, but I got FJ. I was one of those "it looks like JFK, but he didn't hold a cabinet post so it's probably RFK" people.

Infinity is the correct answer for the number of colors contained in white light. There may be seven spectral ranges, but the wavelengths within those ranges provide an infinite number of colors.

Lockheed Martin has obtained a patent for a compact fusion reactor. The company may debut a prototype CPR the size of shipping container, but capable of powering a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier or 80,000 homes, sometime in the next year or so.
I look forward to having a Mr. Fusion soon.

Darn, another dream category that won't be around if I'm ever selected for the show. If there was such a thing as the Geographic Spelling Bee, I have a feeling that I would've placed very high in it.

You can play match days in advance by clicking on where it says Thorsten's Desk and clicking on Advance Access. The questions usually show up at least two weeks in advance.

Re: FJs for the 3/19/18 week

Amusement parks are way too expensive and I don't really see the point in going to them. I'd have never been to Disney World if it wasn't for qualifying for an academic national tournament that was held there, and I don't see any reason to go to Disneyland. A lot of people find it strange that I've ...

Painfully obvious how some clues point to CA residence preference - RAMS... lol. We pulled that one from the East Coast! :lol: Which is why I was surprised to see an Arby's question on the test I took. Arby's used to be an Ohio-based chain, with most of its locations in the Great Lakes region. Has ...

As for music repopularized by the 2018 Winter Olympics, how about the music of Of A Revolution, also known as O.A.R.? Some of their songs have regained popularity.

I can't believe I still remember all the names of the Clinton cabinet members that I memorized for quizbowl in high school. For FJ!, I was trying to remember the word daimyo, but couldn't come up with it, but didn't realize that samurai was a nobility title as well.
