Can't say I recall ever hearing of Emma Goldman.
Me either. I went with Anthony, though it really didn't make much sense but she was the only female activist of that era I could name.

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

If I knew it, I would write it down. If I were totally clueless or had no plausible guess, I would go for the personal shoutout to my wife and/or son.

Or really get things hopping on social media and writing down MAGA 2020.

Re: Thursday, February 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

With the pianist making Oprah look like the guy from the old Federal Express commercials, it is good they only had one round today. A tough FJ. I came up with Liberia in the west but nothing else came up. African geography isn't my strong suit. Team Brad did zero group prep in advance and they don't...

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not a fan of just one round in this episode, but they needed to explain the format and to introduce the teams and show how they were selected. Interesting two of the captains put themselves in the first round. I've gotten behind in watching this season and am almost to the end of 2018 but decided to...

At least that one writer who admitted he wasn't going to vote for Rivera (because he hates the closer role IIRC) had the decency to not submit a ballot, which preserved the unanimity. Or maybe he ju...

Re: Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

Today I learned 1488 was a racist number. I looked it up and like most of those things, it is pretty stupid. I hope whoever did it just picked an unfortunate random number.

I recall a college player betting $69 in FJ.

The Golden State Warriors are the Sports Illustrated Sportsmen of the Year. I think they are just the second team to win the award after the 1980 US Olympic hockey team.

^The Teen Reunion Tournament in Nov. 1998 was structured to have twelve contestants play four semi-final games, but only the top three scorers of the week could advance to the final game on Friday (since Dana finished in fourth place, she did get $7,500 while all the losing contestants got $5,000)....

Re: Tuesday, November 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

From the couch this evening, I gave the thumbs-up to Autumn's all-business approach; it recalled how both Matt Jackson and Niki Peters handled matters three seasons ago. At the mid-first round break, Alex's setup had me worried - but when he handed it off to Autumn, she took it in stride, with grac...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

So putting down Panama for what we handed over in the treaty is acceptable, even though it is flat out wrong. But saying the musical groups were named for places, which is at least technically correct even though not the exact answer, is not acceptable.

Got it.

(13 + 14) x 15 = not even a WAG on my part either. I can't for the life of me see an easier way to do 27 x 15. (Full disclosure: I spun my wheels on this one, and think it was pretty tough to expect someone to do on their feet.) 27 = 30 - 3 30 x 15 = 450 3 x 15 = 45 450 - 45 = 405 I know a four-ste...

Then again the large numbers of audio daily doubles in the early seasons may mean that none of those episodes ever see the light of day due to music licensing fees.
Could a Sony "house band" re-record the songs to get around that issue?

Gays, girls, then everybody else

And if you keep winning, I’m going to start rooting for your challengers. Runaway games are boring!
What would you do if a gay girl went on a long winning streak?
