Re: FJs for the 1/8/18 week

:mrgreen: :( :( :( :( :( :mrgreen: :( Bad week all around. Recently learned about the plane call sign change (could have sworn it was here on JBoard) so that was fresh in my mind. Wasted precious time going from Socrates to Plato before remembering that - duh - they were greek, not roman. Settled on...

Re: Matchy-matchy???

Then again, I don't think I've ever been in a situation where that phrase would come up. There's a reason people don't dress that way.

Instaget FJ. My only niggling doubt was due to my ignorance of how the power of an acting president is returned to the president once he is able to resume his duties (thinking specifically of when Reagan underwent colon surgery and GHW Bush ascended, and then Reagan resumed later that same day).

Re: TD 363 - Q8 RESULTS POSTED

I knew if I could get the other half of the manspreading I'd be in good shape but just could not make a connection with the river. Don't take this as a complaint, but it does seem like the biggest "sound kinda the same" stretch.

Curious about how LTAM exactly works

Apologies if this has been discussed before. My search wasn't very enlightening but if you could point to a previous post that would be great. I'm curious about how exactly they determine the "less than a minute" mark. The show is not televised as it happened in real time. There are edits for flubs,...

Re: Friday, December 29, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

At 37 letters that is longer than the recent Sgt. Pepper response that triggered so much discussion. I knew Hamilton was too recent but couldn't for the life of me remember what production was well-received before it. Tried to tackle it from the "group" angle and didn't get very far. Definitely a bi...

For the Judges: expel instead of respire (argument: respire connotes breathing in and out, not just out, which was the clue) Another: spouse instead of wife Same here, on both of the those. Didn't the P clue also include the word "forceful"? I got the feeling expel was the expected response and the...

Re: Thursday, December 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've always used (and heard) bark in reference to the end result of the rub that has been applied to a piece of meat to be barbecued (not grilled). I don't think you can have bark without having a rub. I agree that what they showed was clearly just grill marks, or char marks, and definitely not bark.

Re: Thursday, December 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm no wagering savant but I thought that a poor FJ bet by Craig. He was apparently trying to protect against a double by Brennan, but since if he misses the answer he drops to third he might as well have bet $5401 to have a shot at winning if Bryce misses or bet $0.
