Does Thorsten even review the 1Ds or MLs? I figured that's what the testing jobs are for.
My understanding is no. When you smith a 1DS, you can provide him notes on what should be accepted and what shouldn't, but ultimately, he is hands off until he runs the scoring machine.

Re: Play along for pancreatic cancer research

23 correct in single Jeopardy, 15 in double, got the Final correct for 39/60. Bumping donation up to $40.

ETA: I gave "flummox" as a response for the $400 clue in "X," which is a synonym for "perplex", so I'm counting it as correct and bumping double to 16 correct. Total is $40.

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

62 percent get rate with almost 10 percent drinking beer. That has to be up there in terms of easier days in LL history.

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Was I foolish to assign 0 points to what I considered a relatively easy question in one of my opponent's better categories? Even if I had picked the other fashion house I was considering instead of Gucci, it would have still been a tie. I know it's part of the game, but I hate being so bad at assig...

The math portion of my brain went mushy went I was trying to calculate my wager in FJ. And yes, Carroll was my 2nd guess. Eliot didn't even come to mind, I've never seen CATS!!! My friend who was in the audience has since sent me a copy of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. It's a weird, but ente...

The clues for handy reference in DO THE MATH since it's bound to be a topic of board interest: $200: It's the decimal equivalent of 1/8 $400: 9 divided by 3/4 = this $600: If  x² + 2 = 18, x = this $800: It's 5% of 400 $1000: (x + 1)² expands to this One way of doing the math in the category: $200:...

Re: Tuesday, December 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue was a no huddle snap for processing and writing to be done before the music. I was prepared to do a 32-team speed round in 30 seconds if necessary as I spent the break making sure I could instantly recall the teams in their 4-team division blocks. Nope, not necessary. I got it down qui...

Re: Where to start w/ trivia & life?

Trivia podcasts have become quite popular. If you're a fan of the pub quiz format, Trivial Warfare is the way to go. OntarioTheQuizzer hosts Complete The List, which is always a fun listen. Many boardies here have been on one of these, if not both. Really just search "trivia" in your podcast player ...

Re: TD 397 - SS

Clarification Question for Bonus #1: When going for the top 3 most correct without error, are we still limited to providing 5 answers, or are we allowed to go beyond 5 answers, but only first 5 would count for the first part of the bonus?

I make dumb mistakes a lot in LearnedLeague, but yesterday may have taken the cake on the Penn question...I currently have about 6-7 cans of Penn racquetballs in my gym bag. Somehow, I knew that was the "similar or accessory item" but went with the "tennis racquets" MCWA instead. Nope, that's Penn's...

I'm friends with my opponent from yesterday on Facebook, so I knew he was a booze connoisseur (he's been "brand ambassador" for two businesses with "spirits" in their name, and another job title on his profile is "drinks writer"), and that he's currently traveling through Italy, so I gave him 0 for...

The Bulleit stop on the Bourbon Trail isn't too far from Bullitt County at least, about 10-15 minutes from the Jefferson-Bullitt county line. We made several stops on the Bourbon Trail before/after visiting my wife's relatives in Shepherdsville, Kentucky. That is the county seat of Bullitt County. ...
