Re: Wednesday, February 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Today I needed all parts of FJ! for the solve. I couldn't immediately drum up Gallipoli, but I thought about the Greek for city and got the Polis (or Poli) and from there was able to get to Gallipoli.

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

I'm doing the two-minute challenge this season. The time limit at Geek Bowl really got to my team (we're used to being able to talk things to death), so I'm doing one initial read-through of the questions and then setting a two-minute timer. Anything I don't have in the boxes before two minutes is u...

I have no idea who those muppets are. I think that for people under 40, muppets who weren't prominently on Sesame Street are really obscure.
I'm 23, not good at pop culture, and I knew it immediately.

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

Okay, this is the time. I live in Memphis, and my girlfriend lives in St. Louis. This has to be the time I get an audition.

Re: Thursday, February 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

CDC = Atlanta. Atlanta med school = Emory. Took a second to make sure I wasn't missing something, but overall fairly straightforward.

Re: TD 366 - FOOD & DRINK

Damn, my joke response of "saltpeter" (from my wife's cooking) backfired on me and turned into a singleton! It turns out to be a real spice (with label warnings). Luckily I joined the herd on Q2. On my way to the cellar, as I forgot to use my drop or sheep. I believe that it's a brining ingredient ...

Re: TD 364 - 2017 in Review - FINAL STANDINGS

Thanks for running a fun TD. I look forward to your next one. A CAUTIONARY TALE Not to be boastful, but if I hadn't missed two questions by getting the line letters wrong, I would have had half as many points as I accrued and would have won by a country mile. (I got 11 points instead of 2 on one an...

Re: TD 364 - 2017 in Review - FINAL STANDINGS

I will never, ever figure this game out. I've had a keen knack for picking sheep lately, even when taking time to think over my answers, and yet here I have my best wire-to-wire perfomance in ages, and it was in a TD I forgot about and had to rush to submit my answers literally 30 seconds before th...

I forgot to enter, but on #5, I would have gone with Boron since Babe was also in the picture with Paul Bunyan. Would that have been accepted?

Re: Monday, December 18, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

A J! contestant cannot study everything before going on the show. What should be on the short list is VPs as that $3600 left up for grabs could have changed things going into the FJ! round. Nice timing by the writers to have this clue for $1000 in ALLITERATION ALL AROUND: The idea that Internet ser...

https://www.fifa.com/mm/document/fifafacts/mencompovw/51/99/03/133485-factsheet-fifahostcountriesoverview1930-2022.pdf From the FIFA website - it has FRG on 1974.
