Re: LL BWA Entries

Yesterday there was a case where the MCWA for one of the questions was probably funnier than anything put down that was an actual attempt to be funny: The WPA standard (known as "American style") prescribes angular pockets that funnel inward, with side pockets being slightly larger. The WEPF standa...

Re: TD 451 - Fourth Flashback [Q1-Q2 revealed]

I'm sure this is very old news to everybody but the number of teams in the Big 10 and the Big 12 is just silly. The Big 10 has 14 teams. The Big 12 has 10 teams.

I've just been putting Ohio State every time there is a college football question and this is the first time the strategy has failed.

US CITIES

Named after a foreign city, it is located at the junction of three states and borders rivers named after two additional states.

What is Cairo, Illinois?

If we rerouted the Tennessee river a bit and removed “additional” from the clue then Memphis would work.

Re: TD 451 - Fourth Flashback

I don't understand number 3. You're giving us a first and last name and asking us for a first and last name? The answer to give is just a first name. That first name is the same for the actress in the role given and for the singer with the song given. The bonus then asks for the last name of the ac...

So the Gordian Knot is named for a city named Gordion and not a city named Gordia. I didn't know that.

Does a muskrat smell like a muskox? I haven't smelled that one either.

I didn't count John Major so I got to 5.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Do people study for a one-day or mini-league by researching that topic before the event? I think that's within the rules and I'm curious if people are actually doing that to boost their scores.

I've taken the triple stumper from Episode 2 and given it a twist: THE CALENDAR Date on which the 20th century BC began What is January 1, 2000 BC? Probably would have been March 1, actually (January didn't exist in 2000 BC). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylonian_calendar#:~:text=The%20Babylonia...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

I'm still working full time in the same office, essentially. Whenever somebody takes a day off a rumor is started that they are out sick with coronavirus. Then they come back to the office, dispel the rumor, and everybody wonders why they bought into it. And then somebody else takes a day off and it...

It looks like all filming in Los Angeles was cleared to restart today so hopefully it won't be too long before we get new episodes of Jeopardy!

I got Toni Morrison. I didn't think of Maya Angelou or Alice Walker so that made it easy. I got balaclavas mixed up with balalaikas.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Breathed a sigh of relief on seeing that "Crohn" was right. I was nervous about Colitis, since the question said the physician's name was the disease's name. Also, there was nothing in the clue to suggest that the namesake doctor was more worthy than the other two, so perhaps it was just coincidenc...
