Re: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had the same FJ response as Hermine, though I doubt my spelling would have counted anyway. There seemed to be an edit after Josh said Willis Tower. I wonder if it was negged to begin with and then accepted. Congrats to Josh on making the TOC. Music is far from my niche, but I went 5/5 despite not ...

I went with Fort Knox, thinking it was part of early western expansion.

Re: Reretaken Down

Watching J! through the Montgomery, AL feed allows me to see political ads that are quite different than the ones that air locally in S.F.

Re: Friday, May 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Someone asked what would have happened if they flipped the FJ clues in the finals. This is purely speculative, as it assumes they'd have made the same bets on the first day that they did in real life. Claire Bishop: 9400+8000=17400 Larry Martin: 18400+6601=25001 Steve Mond: 5600+3000=8600 Now, we ag...

"I got 'plumbago' on a wild-ass guess" on the poll this week, please. There'll be at least one check, I promise. I said it just to say something, with "plumb" = "lead" as the only hook I had. Archive hits not withstanding, I'll confidently say I've never heard of it before. Agree. This is a ToC lev...

Re: Thursday, May 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I sought but did not find Matthew but was able to get Job. The only chronic back condition that came to mind was lumbago. So I put a p on the front and got it right. The plumb=lead gave me some confidence though I admit I thought plumbago was as stupid as the three guesses on the show. While I have ...

Nothing at all came to me on this FJ.

At least everyone made wagers that gave them a chance to win.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I got it right, but I also considered Chinese. It is hard to picture a language that uses symbols and decide if that would be considered cursive.

But my cursive writing in English looks like Chinese, so I’m not the best judge. :lol:

Re: Wednesday, May 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It is strange Alex gave the disclaimer about FJ being picked in advance during the college tournament but not here. The reason before was because people might think it was unfair because one of the players might not be Christian. Which never occurred to me because I have known Christians of all ethn...

Re: Tuesday, May 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

"Steve wagered strategically..." *drink* At least he didn’t say it was savvy. I guess since he sees FJ live and probably has other things to do during the break, he doesn’t ponder wagering strategy very often. And since he is supposed to be neutral as the host, he probably shouldn’t. But he has wat...

Re: Tuesday, May 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alex’s opening comments are why you should watch the games in order. A boardie shoutout to end the first round. Had this been a TS, we’d have had another case of second place overwatering away a win. I wondered if the leader would bet small due to second place’s constraints, but she wisely didn’t re...

Charlotte was the wife of George III, and thus was queen-consort. So she might not technically be considered a monarch.

Never read the book and only seen parts of the movie. I did know Rhett was a blockade runner. I started with Atlanta, but that isn’t named for a monarch. Then I went to Charleston and was safe. Maybe being Southern helped, though I’ve never been there. I said bookmakers and webiquette. Yes, a bad be...
