Re: Wednesday, February 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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...

Seth’s chat was about Pizza Society and he said there was a contestant last year connected with it. Yes. https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4651&p=279586&hilit=pizza+society#p279586 I've played Seth and Krishna in LearnedLeague a few times. Both are strong competitors there. I liked this FJ! clu...

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?

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

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...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

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. ...

Ah I see and I would agree. Thursday was brutal for my A Rundle; we barely got above 50% for that day. Over all rundles, 3 of the 4 hardest days of the season occurred last week (Thursday was 1, Monday was 2, Friday was 4). Stats here: https://learnedleague.com/allrundles.php?78&19 Is there a way t...

Requoting to say that yesterday blew those days out of the water in terms of difficulty. Funny, I’ve really been struggling this season, but Monday was one of the days where I felt the beer was in reach, yet ended up with just 4 right because I thought Fort Knox was in TN and assumed Thorsten would...

So who pissed in Thorsten's cornflakes last week? Yeesh. Is this in response to SmitheeA or the 13 made inactive? Nope, just the level of difficulty I've encountered of late. Maybe it's just me, but overall league get rates have been down the last few days as well. Ah I see and I would agree. Thurs...
