Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

"Adoration of" should be enough to cue "Magi" for those who have ever heard the full phrase, Which I have, but "adoration" just seemed way too wide-open for me to get a bead on. Could be any trio for all I know, and nothing in the clue even remotely points to a religious trio. Could have been the T...

Re: J! to Tape Without Live Audience

Also, for the record, media companies (I'm 99% sure J!'s production company would fall within this) are exempt from the restrictions in LA County. Thus, the post-production workflow of the show isn't going to be prevented from happening. Looking over a summary of the state order, the nearest exempt...

Re: J! to Tape Without Live Audience

How exactly is an episode sent out to affiliates? Will someone be able to go to the studio to do whatever it takes to send it out? Shouldn't there be an app for that? I wonder what kind of reruns they will show if the season ends early. Well, it certainly gives TPTB a lot more flexibilty than the s...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Common Knowledge"

Another Common Knowledge meets IdioTest failure. How many 99 cent items can you buy with a $100 bill? .99 * 101 == 99.99(.99 * 100 == 99, 99 + .99 == 99.99) The correct answer is 101. Unfortunately both team did not do the calculations. The first team had 89. The second team fell in the trap with 1...

Ran Good Choice, 4/5 in Men, You (overthought "fraternity") and Desert (didn't realize Australia had deserts). Not only does it HAVE deserts, fully 35% of the continent is covered in true desert, and another 35% is semi-arid. [sarcasm] and then there are the parts that, like TPH, are all wet. [/sar...

With the mayor of Los Angeles declaring a state of emergency over the coronavirus, I was wondering if that means that this season of J! will either be cut short or if the remaining tapings will be delayed a while. ...It seems like everything is business as usual...

I wasn't going to say this, and it's probably a case of "all bald people look alike" when they really don't, but the Doctor Who clue made me think that Josh looks a little bit like a much younger version of Nardole from the show. Score one in my "I learned it on J! this season" column for Don Giova...

I had just Narragansett for the Rhode Island clue. Would that get BMS? :?:

I think you're safe with just Narragansett. I cannot find a reference to a river or creek by that name.

Also, I agree with other two points.

Yeah. To pick anyone else would be to overthink it for no reason. If anyone did pick a different Confederate general I'd be interested in knowing what in the clue led them to their choice. How about picking a guy (Hamilton) who was never a rebel against the US and who had been dead more than 50 yrs...

If it had been a DD and I HAD to answer... that's what I'd have been forced to say, for want of not knowing the name of another position! Would NEVER have rung in.
