Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Q9 Results

9. PARKS AND RECREATION Name a U.S. state that does not have a national park. Note: the National Park designation does not include national monuments, preserves, historic areas or other federally recognized sites I'm curious if my esteemed boardmates knew for a fact that these states do not have an...

Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Closing Today

Started easy but didn't take long to descend into head-scratching territory.

A gentle note for future TDs: old people need BIG pictures to look at.

Re: Wednesday, July 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

For me, a three man group with a long career is pavlov for Rush. I didn't bother to backtrack to a possible original festival or 25th anniversary followup, but if I did I think I would have ended up on Woodstock. Once there I certainly would have considered if the inclusion of Young in the original ...

Re: Monday, June 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

When politicians talk about "increasing growth by 4% a year", for example, they mean GDP growth. When politicians talk about "increasing growth by 4% a year" and growth is currently 4%, does that mean they want it at 4.16%? The clue: ECONOMICS $400: From 1990 to 2015 this annual figure for the U.S....

Argh! While listening to a certain song on the radio last night I realized I errored one character in the singer's name. Serves me right for not waiting until the last moment to submit answers.

Knew it was the science of birds. Completely forgot what the science of birds was called. Went with "zoology" and hoped that would be enough. (I am not giving myself credit.) Same here, although I went with biology. The correct response was rattling around my brain and given another 10 seconds it w...

WAGed Jay Gatsby based just on his connection to New York, 99% sure it would be wrong.

I mistakenly pictured NZ to the SW of Australia instead of the SE and so went with Australia. At least I learned something.

Ugh, completely skunked FJ this week! First time that has happened in what, forever? I attribute it to spending about 98% of my brain cycles trying to buy a house.

You know Google could have dispelled this erroneous notion of yours in about ten seconds. Pretty sad first post.

I have a dim recollection of hearing lumbago once upon a time (perhaps a Three Stooges episode?) but to the best of my knowledge never heard plumbago and would have dismissed it as a nonsense word (along with the psciatica and pscoliosis that I briefly considered). As time drifted away I tried addin...

I struggled mightily with FJ and out of desperation went with Joan Rivers. I knew she had died around the given year, had written at least one book and could conceivably had been an Oscar nom. Very uncomfortable with it though as she is certainly not best known as a writer. I've heard of Nora Ephron...

Re: Wednesday, May 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Figured it was either Lewis or Clark. Meriweather sounded more like someone who would hook up with a Theodosia so I went with Lewis. Never in a million years would I have stumbled on the duel, but hopefully I have that date anchored now.
