Re: Pavlov revival

Rule of thumb: FJ is not going to be about something obscure.
So I take it you didn't watch Monday's episode...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Best Ever Trivia Show" [Spoilers]

... I added a line on Saran's page: http://www.j-archive.com/showplayer.php?player_id=4150 ... I met and played pub trivia with her a few years back. She was introduced to me as "Saran". At one point, she, I, and the venerable Rex Kramer played on the same team. I remember Rex showing her her games...

The good thing about the Viewmaster was the rotating system. Not only that but it didn't require printing and enlargement to paper cards which were more susceptible to warping/bending, mold, water damage, sticking to each other, dirt/scratches, etc. etc. Cared for well, films on Viewmaster discs fr...

Emma came down hard on the d in mood to separate it from the d in disorder. That's all....
I'm glad she made sure to get in that first "d".

I wouldn't have wanted to see her negged for "moo disorder", which is, btw, something to discuss with the vet.

I'm curious though; aside from the fact that Spain is the answer, is there some detail that eliminates Emma's--and my--response of Norway from consideration? I would assume the implication was that it would be a country that would not normally be on GMT+1 due to its location with respect to Germany...

You know, I just don't get this smart wager theory. Yeah, he locked out the third guy with his bet to lock in what... a GRAND? ... The bet was not about $1k.

New record. This is the kind of game in which I really wanted him to find all the DDs to see what kind of bets he would make. Only thing is I wonder if he would have been able to come up with "pruning hooks." That was a rough one, wasn't it? Not something you're likely to guess if you don't know it...
