Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

How did 80+% get cheesesteak? Northeast regional invented sandwich in close proximity to New Jersey. Cheesesteak was either going to be right or the MCWA. The question is: "An Italian-American named Pat Olivieri, who operated a hot dog stand in the 1930s in his hometown at the intersection of Whart...

Re: Friday, May 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Felt stupid once reminded that there were TWO Bushes with a Texas connection. "Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." I was misled by the category - isn't there likely a museum for every president? I went with California for the Reagan and Nixon libraries plus...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Yesterday was probably the most upset at myself I've been in 12 seasons in LL. I forgot to put in an answer that was not only right but would've given me a tie. I went through the questions and knew the players and Johnson right off. I do my defense. I look again at Q1, thought, thats the murder be...

Re: TD 445 - Prime Time [Final results]

So the final reveal on number 11 went 8-8-5 so not a complete script flipper. I was hoping for an epic 13-4-6 or something to shuffle the leaderboard into the loserboard. Or at least to trade places with AFRET after my poke :). Appropriately, And the co-champions… 1. merica - 31 1. Gamawire - 31 The...

Re: Thursday, May 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't think I've ever made a poll suggestion, but how about "finger and singer rhyme" vs. "finger and singer don't rhyme"? Second that request. "Finger" and "Singer" rhyme in German. Not in English. This is almost the dress question to me. My mental narration as I read this post was an almost per...

Word up, you need to be looking in the rear view mirror. Floridagator and merica both are dope at playing this game. I'll be back to the all sheep line soon enough, thank you. :roll: eta - I've possibly got a wrong answer coming up on the numbered TV show and maybe even question 11, which will prob...

WTF???
Is this opposite day? FIVE singletons when I had to choose two obvious ones because I knew no other choices? (One song, one character)

I was ambushed by this as a regular game, expecting the teachers today. I was looking forward to a surreal episode with no audience, but the producers took the safe route. Jesse has the distinction of being the only (?) player to know the different vibe from playing in front of a live audience and n...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Private Rundles have to be set up before Rundle placements are made. Final Registration Deadline was May 13, that cutoff applies to PR as well, I believe. Once you see your Rundle assignment, it is too late. Thanks for the dope slap. :oops: :oops: :oops: Big rookie mistake by me. I was waiting for ...

Let's try and get more than myself and the 12 foot boy in the JV (C,D,E rundlers) JBoardie private rundle this season...assuming the 12-footer sets it up! It will definitely be set up and you have just given it a name! The original "B" team was not meant to be aspirational, and JV is pitch perfect ...

So, if anyone wants a good simulation of doing a PhD candidacy exam for which you are underprepared, please do the psychology and behavioral science minileague!

Re: Monday, May 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did the show use some editing technology to speed up the speech without changing voice and intonation? Is the rerun faithful to the original airing? It's like all three of them had triple espressos (since Red Bull wasn't a thing yet, lol..) Red Bull was most definitely a thing in 2004. Heck, Monste...

I'm curious for those who learned the "sometimes w" rule, when did you learn it? I learned "sometimes y" but NOT "sometimes w" in 1971. James Buchanan Elementary School, probably 2nd grade, so 1959-1960. This 2-room country school alum learned about "w" as a vowel about ten minutes ago catching up ...

I pretty much know my US states with my right brain, but that border category was more challenging than I expected for it's puzzle solving requirements.
