Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did it sound to anyone else like Erin said "verboden" rather than "verboten?" Is that really an accepted pronunciation? My CC showed both spellings. It seemed like they took the first one, but then she came back with the hard "t" immediately before the overrule, if one was coming. Sodium citrate. 5...

Re: "A Big Statistic" for $400 poll (10/14/19 spoiler)

would crab fishing have been accepted? or too specific? IMHO it almost has to count. They can't fault you for trying to point it toward deep sea / ocean fishing vs. the recreational counterparts. For all we know, crab fishing by itself it might be the most dangerous occupation. I couldn't organize ...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would say she was doomed more by whiffing a very easy geographic DD (which a trivia buff should have known instantly--national parks and the states they are in are pretty basic stuff) than by the FJ situation. She came across as a great player, but really, that was a ridiculous DD to miss. I prob...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Roughly 58% of one-day champs lose their second game. The mathematician in me has to point out that technically speaking and by definition, 100% of one-day champs lose their second game. But yeah, we know what you mean. And this shocking statistic just in after 2+ years of Betsy DeVoss and this adm...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

On 'opposable thumb', IIRC the closed captioning said 'disposable thumb' and I thought they were going to take her money away. My CC (I guess they are all the same?) also said "disposable", but I clearly heard "opposable" (maybe she said "an opposable"). I had paused the DVR while twelvefootgirl fi...

You said you wanted to be constructive, but in the same post, you clearly went after Casket with the Fox News comment. Then you did it again with me. Seems flamey, not constructive.

(redacted stuff (edited)) Just the early firepower from Lindsey had a different feel to it. No offense in the slightest to Susan, who clearly has the chops to have hung in there despite a big deficit, and to properly wager. I hope ANY female can make a big run again soon, no matter how it's done. I...

Embarrassing miss of the night: despite having been a customer service rep for GM for three years back in the day, I negged with chassis instead of crankcase. That is FUNNY!

Kind of a long piece, for those who already know the story of this scandal.

I have no idea what the President's Cup even is and wanted to drop it but needed the drop worse later. I figured Gary Player being from South Africa would make that answer a fairly safe bet. This was an awesome question! I knew this existed back in the day as a counterpart to the Ryder Cup for the ...

I managed to scrape by with 23rd place out of 26th in my rundle. I lost the final day, but the person just below me did too. I lost 6(5)-8(5) with my opponent getting Leaves (3 points), but missing Slim (1 point). He didn't have a great pop music score, but I figured at least a couple of the people...

My two weeks of singleton FJ gets is ended with a 2-get streak for this week! I only got hung up wondering if they truly meant "deadly" in terms of human casualties, and not ecosystem or environmental damage which would be of prehistoric nature. I think that Yellowstone contains a supervolcano (syst...
