Re: Thursday, November 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

OK, math is a strong suit, & I've never heard of an oblique triangle. Such a triangle was always refered as scalene. Absolute instaget of a FJ. C'mon, Bible, couldn't you give Lot's wife a name? The dividend clue reminds me that I've not heard the term "quotient" since my second attempt at fifth gr...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Surprised to see the question about the US state and the tony winning musical / academy award winning film now has 8 possible answers!!? I dismissed Illinois (did Chicago win best musical?) and went with Tennessee (for Memphis the musical and assuming Nashville must have won for the Oscar for best ...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

Re: Monday, November 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think the reason so many people are saying San Francisco is because President Harding died there on his way back from Alaska. But he wasn't shot. FG, you give us too much credit ;). If somebody knew Harding died in SF, they probably know it was ca 1923. I thought the SF earthquake was "probably" ...

Re: FJ!s for the 11/11/19 week

I got all 10 TOC FJ so I'll say they were too easy for a TOC. Maybe someone has FJ conversion stats for the participating contestants in previous TOCs. 48.28% - 14/29 - 1985 ToC 34.48% - 10/29 - 1986 ToC 57.14% - 16/28 - 1987 ToC 50.00% - 15/30 - 1988 ToC 30.00% - 9/30 - 1989 ToC 36.67% - 11/30 - 1...

I had deep horizon instead of deepwater horizon
I wanted to just put Horizon in and hope, but knew there was another word. Finally put New Horizons in. Yeah, that's the space probe to Pluto in the news in 2015. I hate that damn rock. The dog is OK, I'm agnostic about the Roman god. :roll:

I think the peck definitely disclaims any liquid and the barrel and fifth examples were accidental negbait that would likely be avoided if you PLAY CATEGORIES IN ORDER. This.

Re: Friday, November 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Liquor" BMSes to volume? Why not, and what else to do? It would be hard to justify deeming "liquor" wrong. Technically, a more helpful prompt would have been "be more general", but that would have given away too much. A peck of liquor? Not normal usage, but there's no reason a volume measure could...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 11/14/2019 - Thursday TOC (SPOILERS)

Revisiting the Standard Model clue - I wonder if the word "model" in the clue deterred Francois from this answer vs. GUT or TOE, or String Theory, etc.. In parentheses, that means it is part of the response? On closer inspection, 1976 rules out String Theory, but still seems a little young for the S...

Re: Reretaken Down

The Browns and Steelers must not like each other. That was ugly. Myles Garrett is going to be a hot topic tomorrow. That was like WWE unscripted.

The biggest book in the Bible? Easy, Psalms has 150 chapters. Don't rule it wrong or I'll get all Psalmy on you :evil: I'll never understand the way buzzer dominance works.

Re: LL83: Learned League

I am curious how many people who got San Francisco knew the question was about the Federal Reserve and how many just guessed a city in the West. It would have been a better question if the missing city had been Richmond or Cleveland. The letters more than anything else made me think of the Fed, and...

Also, three cheers for the wagers. But Gilbert needed a couple hundred bucks and a sole solve. His zippo bet meant Lindsay had to overbet, and let him in the equation. In some ways, it would have been lousy if his gifted $1600 for the faux rebound wound up winning the game for him. I wish New York ...

I thought they were looking for a food belt because of a reference to a literal belt expansion and for some reason, thought first of the Jello Belt (Mormons). I could not dig myself out of this hole. If it takes longer than two seconds to parse the clue, it's a stinker in my book. Totally agree. Aw...
