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

24k is a height that no mountain outside Asia reaches, that's why. There are a ton of mountains in South America that are 22K. If your numerical search on mountains isn't that fine-tuned, then Gangkar Puensum could be in South America. Or if you don't know that Kilimanjaro is only 19K, then Gangkar...

But that's knowing the FIRST, not the 24th President. It's knowing a superlative, not some random number in between.
To tie a couple of recent posts together: Cleveland Rocks!

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--TOC Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

We drove through Pilzen on our way to Prague some 5 years ago (time flies) but didn't get to stop at the brewery. From Prague I brought back a couple of (empty) bottles of Czech Budweiser for beer loving friends.

"Whose" was my only miss in Contractions.
It's a miss in written form as well, although you didn't change pronounciation.

For team names I would prefer it be Team Colby, Team Ken etc. after the captains and no punny pub trivia types.
So you'd be opposed to "Make Mine A Collins"?
To go really retro: The Colbys.

I found a really stupid way to miss my state capital that's 60 miles away from where I live. I glossed over the "named after a president" part and focused on Boone. I know Columbia is in Boone County, but that doesn't have a double letter. News flash: it's not the capital either, Sherlock! By then,...

My addendum to Suzanne's response to Alex's early season rafting comment in the interview: Kudos to Suzanne for not correcting Alex. I rafted Grand Canyon 4 times. At the start of the second one, I got married. It doesn't matter when you raft, the water will be cold because it comes from the bottom ...

I know I'm late but have a question for the judges.

In WHO Essential Drugs, for the clue which basically looked for powdered activated this to treat poisoning I said carbon in lieu of charcoal. What do you think?

I pre-called the reversal for Annual Rate of Return, but TPTB were generous giving Revenue IMHO - that isn't a thing anyone would call ARR. The category name mentioned 'aa' and the abbr in the clue was "AAR" and spotted us "average annual". So that would turn the first two responses into average an...

Ah, so peach was the key word. I thought the Masters was older than that though. But nothing else came to mind, so that's a get. A key word, though its importance escaped me first time around.

So from what I'm gathering that GDP clue was just a garbage clue? No There was nothing wrong with the clue, but it could have been made a bit clearer by putting "growth" or "increase" in the clue and therefore keying GDP as the correct response. Y?
