Re: Friday, June 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This was an interesting Final Jeopardy clue. Most Catholic dioceses in the United States celebrate Ascension on Sunday (day 43) instead of the traditional Thursday (day 40). Still, Acts of the Apostles mentions the 40th day, so it shouldn't matter. Otherwise, how many other "holiday" islands can the...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Speaking of BWA...has Thorsten even announced any candidates this season? Is this something he is discontinuing or just putting on backburner due to other league issues that have come up?

Re: Monday, June 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

You played beautifully. If I were the contestant, I would find this very patronizing and insulting. Well, a Coryat of 13600 is a heck of a lot higher than most contestants get, winning or not. Average in regular games is 10,701 as of today's stats: http://j-archive.com/miscstats.php?season=34 Also ...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Very lucky yesterday with what I will call a Buckner tie, 6(3)-6(5). Opponent only missed Neiman Marcus, while my opponent thought Webster would be hard enough for me to give me a 3. This leads to an interesting question. I Smithed the National Spelling Bee One Day in April. With that knowledge, mos...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Ohio State used to be in the CCHA with Lake Superior St. and Michigan Tech. I'm glad that there were enough people who knew about these two colleges to keep it from being in the single digits. I thought Tech was WCHA? At least in the mid 2000s and maybe still since the Big Ten made their own confer...

Re: You guys are obsessed over wagering way too much.

I'm still trying to determine if we're obsessed with wagering in general or if we're obsessed with wagering way too much --as in "what a dummy, he should have wagered zero, but instead he risked it all!" Or perhaps it's over wagering in general. It all depends on how you read the thread title! :D H...

Re: You guys are obsessed over wagering way too much.

Then there's the occasional person who wants to put raisins in potato salad. That sure seems to ruffle feathers. I'm pretty sure that's illegal. Not if it's consensual. Oh, you meant the bit about the raisins. :oops: See, feathers ruffled. Speaking of potato salad and Jeopardy: https://youtu.be/hzM...

Re: You guys are obsessed over wagering way too much.

Why is that? Reddit potato salad is far superior in every conceivable manner. And the people there don’t mind if you’re not using Idaho potatoes My objective was to use up a quantity of leftover ranch dressing. I mixed in about 5 ribs' worth of chopped celery, half a sweet onion, 4 hard-boiled eggs...

Re: You guys are obsessed over wagering way too much.

Given that a portion of the show and strategy is based on wagering (there's also a website for it: http://thefinalwager.com), it makes sense to discuss it to some degree. Are you more concerned about the method of discussing the wagering, or just the sheer volume of discussion on wagering? I venture...
