Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

My 18 months expired last week. Nothing within driving distance, but maybe I'll do the 1.5 hour flight to New Orleans or St Louis. Apparently the 3rd time was not the charm, but the 4th time could be... I repeated the online qualifying exam two weeks after my 18 months expired, got "the call" about...

Re: Friday, February 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I really liked Vinay but generally I always have to root for a boardie. We've had a number of very likeable contestants this week; Rob has been fun to root for but it's unfortunate that for some to win, others have to lose. Vinay seemed to have a grin that reminded me very much of Andy Kaufman -- m...

Super-instaget of the final... Loved that show. However, I didn't remember any character named Pearl, so I set a spell and went a-Googlin'... Hmm... played by Bea Benaderet, veteran sitcom actress... Didn't remember her being on that show, however... Even still pics of her in Bev. Hillbillies costu...

It's apparently a 9,500 - square foot house on about a third of an acre (not much room for a yard) built in 1892. It's supposedly single-family and has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. And, still, no one has ever seen Lars. Nor Carlton. The Doorman. Or Norm's wife, Vera or Margaret's husband, Lou...

I'm still dumbfounded that "identify Nebraska on a map" got greenlit to be a $1600 clue. That's a $200 Kids Week clue. And in case you're unsure, we'll label Wyoming, Montana, and both Dakotas to eliminate some possible mistakes! Sadly, I still clammed. It was one of those reveals where both the mi...

Said Oldsmobile for final, getting within touching distance of the right asnswer.
Maybe not touching distance, but perhaps close enough to see it -- a favorite period joke when the Edsel came out was that it "looks like an Oldsmobile sucking on a lemon."

Re: TD 367 - 30 - FINAL STANDINGS

Fun TD and thought-provoking. I finished in my normal, comfortable, middle-of-the-bottom-half location. Chose a good question to sheep (elements) and then completely forgot to drop a question. That could have rocketed me all the way up to the top of the bottom half. Oh, well, doesn't make it any les...

Oh and hey look at that. I learned something new today. "The Right Stuff" was written by Tom Wolfe! And what good does that tidbit do you? Why are you so insistent in arguing with people who are trying to help you in good faith? Because I don't get the point of learning something so utterly useless...

Sean received the benefit of the doubt on his responses for the National Zoo doctor and list of recordings while there was no saving him on calling the actor famous for playing Harold Hill, Prince. It was an easy rebound for Marcy from Iowa. As someone who can sing (quite badly) every song from the...

That GRAPHICS DD really tripped me up: DESIGNERS WANT IMAGES TO BE CLEAR & HAVE GOOD THIS 10-LETTER WORD, ALSO A FAVORABLE NOVEL OUTCOME. I got stuck on "denouement". Couldn't shake it. It's got 10 letters and everything. Tangentially, I'm not sure that a "resolution" has to mean a favorable outcom...

Welcome Sean! I may also add some retroactive good luck, however if that “94” in your username is a reference to your birth year, I’ll have to throw in a “get off my lawn” as well for making me feel old. (I graduated from university in that year for Pete’s sake!) 1994 graduation means that you were...

Interesting thought. Setting it as a goal would create a dietary Zeno's Paradox. Zeno's Potatodox?

Re: FJs for the 1/29/18 week

My worst poll week by far in many months, 4/8. My forehead is still sore from all the slapping inflicted upon it. Couldn't pull Kerouac in time, but I knew "Ginsberg did poetry, his buddy did prose" wouldn't cut it. Didn't know the library lions even had names. Got draft card and Oklahoma just as ti...

Re: Football Category Poll (2/1/18 SPOILERS)

Regarding "triple option": is my impression correct, that this is distinct from the plain option play in that the QB can opt either to run, pitch or forward pass? Generally run with QB under center, with two running backs behind him (RBs can be in "I formation" (single file) or side-by-side. Option...

$800: "Offsetting" is the term in the NFL. "Coincidental" is the term in the NHL. Went with the former. Would the latter be acceptable, judges? Doubtful. It's officially referred to as a "Double Foul" in the rulebook , but I've only ever heard it called "offsetting" during a game. Usually it's the ...

Encyclopedia Brown here. Until about 25 seconds in when I hastily changed it to Pippi Longstocking thinking it was a better fit but still not confident.
Just in case it ever comes up in the future, Leroy (Encyclopedia) Brown is a boy.
And a bad, bad one. Just call him "Sir."
