Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

The JEOPARDY! All-Star Games will air over the course of 10 weekdays from Wednesday, February 20 to Friday, March 5, 2019. Or what in the U.S. we call Tuesday. Don't be too hard on him; I too get thrown off by the calendar every time Friday the 13th comes on Wednesday like it did this week. Ha! I f...

Re: Monday, February 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My biggest "had no clue" of the game was in regards to web archives; did not know "wayback machine" related to that and was unfamiliar with the nomenclature for SUV seat rows.

If they had asked about Mr. Peabody and Sherman with a 1960s station wagon, however, would have had it in a heartbeat.

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Missed with "Much Ado About Nothing," another play where what was displayed outside didn't seem to match the feelings inside. They could do it billions and billions of times, and "Cornell" plus "astronomer" will always = "Sagan."

Re: Tuesday, February 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first exposure to Balzac came after wondering just who, exactly, Mrs. Paroo was talking about when she was singing to Marian during Winthrop's piano lesson. Not to quibble too much, but I think it was Mrs. Shinn in "Pick a Little, Talk a Little" Who else shouted out "Who is BALZAC?" in the affro...

Re: TD 412 - SenseiCAY's birthday Mini-TD

Thanks for a quick, fun one, even though my over/under for wrong answers is two.

And happy birthday. Our first grandson was born yesterday; nice to know he's in such distinguished company.

Re: Wednesday, January 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Just remembered I said habañera when the correct response was habanera. They might have let me get away with that but they really shouldn't. As to why I made that mistake, I blame Decca Records. They use that misspelling on the track listing for my CD of Lalo and Chabrier pieces. I didn't realize i...

Walker, Texas Ranger is probably my favorite TV show of all time next to J! and The Simpsons (I'm dead serious)...so of course I couldn't think of anything besides the Rough Riders. My wife and daughter are in the same fan club, though I started leaving the room while they watched it after about th...

Wasn't getting this Final in a million years either. Heard of Atwood and the novel/Hulu show in question, but that's about the extent of my knowledge of the work. Agreed. For me, it is one of those "heard of, but know very little about it." The 1984 reference pointed to a future dystopia, but I kne...

Re: Reretaken Down

[referencing pass interference] I think the awarding of 30-50 yard penalty yardage is ridiculous. Supposedly both players have a "right" to the ball, but offensive PI only gets 10? yard penalty and the other may be 50 yards and fresh downs. There should be a penalty distance of no more than half th...

Anyway, I'm pretty sure LSV meant to say he eats AND smokes salmon every day.
Had an uncle who heard that salmon was good for you, so he tried to smoke one. Too hard to keep it lit, so he went back to cigars.

Dang. Never have seen an episode of "Survivor" and am only vaguely aware of its existence. Should have dropped it instead of going with what turned out to be fanfic my daughter used to follow and talk about.

“Thanks to the Corleone family”? What the what?
