Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 1 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Pretty tough. I have a minor writing quibble with this question: "26 years after winning Olympic gold, at age 45 he became the oldest heavyweight champion in boxing history." because it doesn't specify when this happened-- I think it'd be a little clearer to say something like "26 years after winnin...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 1 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

That William and Mary question is brutal-- for some reason (possibly a questionable HS education) I was very sure that William and Mary was the oldest one in the US, so I put Harvard. Oops. Should have trusted myself on Ant-Man: I knew it was a movie title, and I associate formic acid with ants, but...

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

Good luck everyone on the new season! After eking my way into B my rookie season last time, I have only two goals: don't get relegated, and increase my TCA. I'll ambitiously set a goal of increasing by 5 TCA each season, or 20 per year. That puts me targeting 88 this season. Well, looks like I've s...

Congrats to everyone who paryicipated! One of these days I'll get my act together and travel or set up a site here. Our proctor (Ma...

It's All's Well. See http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=2080 the $400 Shakespeare clue.

Taking all three unofficially I got 40/38/45 in order, not too shabby. Some lucky guesses on this one though, like angels and schooner.

Re: What is wrong with Ken Jennings?

I see that Ken Jennings is posting some weird stuff on his verified twitter account today 5/31/17. "Barron Trump saw a very long necktie on a heap of expired deli meat in a dumpster. He thought it was his dad & his little heart is breaking" Picking on 11 year old boy? "I'm concerned some of u may n...
