Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

Glad I could help.

Since this was your first day, I just wanted to let you and anyone else know that any discussion whatsoever about the questions is forbidden on here until the results are posted on the LL site.

This includes saying things like “they were hard” or “I got four right”.

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

I'm in Division 1 of Sugarloaf Rundle R. Rookie question: How early in the morning can I submit? A day after a federal holiday can easily mean a 15-16 hour workday at the post office and I have no idea when I'll get home Tuesday. You can play Day 1 right now if you want to. You can play up to ten g...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Comedian Marty Allen, whom I thought had died years ago, has died at 95.

That was a loud and enthusiastic studio audience today.

I am also (indirectly) responsible for that.
:)

I had three very enthusiastic cheerleaders. (my wife, her mom and aunt)
Congratulations on the win!!!

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had to rely on the Reddit guy when the networks went into full coverage of the sad events in Florida. I wasn’t too happy to see that FJ category as I haven’t listened to current music since the 80s. But after a bit of thought, I recalled the craze from back in the day. Kind of a bleah game as nobo...

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Perhaps it’s just me but I didn’t really see the Jay Leno category as being about cars. I use the j-scorer site to track my Coryat and part of the site lets you enter the topic of the category so you can track your performance in various topics like in LL. I didn’t code that as “cars” though as I f...

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I said dancer for Lola's job. Judges? I said the same but didn't mark myself up or down for it figuring the judges would've BMS'd it and I'm not sure if I would've worked through the lyrics in time (I'm no fanilow). Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress ...

I said dancer for Lola's job. Judges? I got Alex the Great in a coin flip over Aristotle Onassis. I said the National Bank for the Andy Jackson DD.I guess that would be acceptable. But all I could get for the third DD was The French Lieutenant's Woman. I got the LL question right and this was an ins...

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If all three get it right, third place wins the game. I hope Keith has someone drive him home from the gym. The wording led me to a car and the Edsel. Marty was the only one to get it right. I wonder if this is one that skews to an older crowd, though Marty isn’t old enough to have seen one. LT on C...

So John buys stuff cheap at thrift shops and sells them for a profit online? That rubs me the wrong way a little bit. The thrift store gets stuff for free and sells them for a profit. But usually in support of a charity, right? Some places are more charitable than others. And yes, the target market...

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

Have you ever heard of Plato's Republic? While it wasn't right and certainly didn't really make sense in relation to the wording of the clue, it was better than nothing.

It took me a bit to wade through the wording of the clue, but I got to Emory in plenty of time. I was surprised nobody went with Georgia Tech. While it is known more for engineering, it is more of a "brainy" school than UGA. Not to mention it is actually in Atlanta. I agree the pool clue could have ...

I knew orange and blue but put red for the third color for some reason. Sean should have been negged for however he pronounced veternarian. Marcy should have headed to the bottom of the sun category with time running out, She only got to three clues and was still $100 out of first. I didn't see what...

I may have vaguely heard of that work, but it was never coming to me. I joined Nabila and probably a few others on here in putting down Republic just to have something even though we all had little hope it was right. A zero bet from Quin would have put him at risk of being passed by Nabilia. Congrat...
