Re: LL83: Learned League

I am embarrassed by how long it took me to remember Mildred Pierce . For the golf one, I was like, "Medinah? That sounds familiar. No idea, though. submits THAT's why I know Medinah." Didn’t recognize any of the places but thought golf, bc what else? Then maybe tennis? Thought both too obvious and ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I was a little surprised he didn't ask for both Frost and Nixon...I re-read the question like 15 times to make sure he only wanted one. 4(4) - 0(0) win to get me in the top 3 of D Magnolia D2.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Almost got a W0(0) - 0(0)F yesterday after submitting with the Koin coming up IL over TN but I did stick with my gut on heavy despite heavier being in the question. I knew about heavy water from nuclear reactors cooling water but the heavier definitely threw me. I almost put "distilled" as some othe...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Opened with a self-inflicted 3(3) - 3(3) tie...I recognized the city question as referring to govt money related sites but my mint Koin came up Denver over SF...the real kicker was Q2 where I didn't know it but thought, that's probably the Orwell novel with Big Brother, so I promptly typed in Animal...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How is the current ML and recent 1Ds going for the rest of you? I'm 0 for 2 on the ML thus far. It wouldn't have gotten me a win yesterday (I find using the Golden Arches theory in a theme of pop culture just because it involves McDonald's to be pushing it, but I digress), and as a big fan of comic...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

edit: I just looked at the csv file that has stats for the entire league and I led the league in both CAA and TPA! Congratulations? I ended a difficult season for me with a 7(5) - 5(4) win getting all except viceroy. I was a little surprised that trade winds was only 48% and leaves, which me and my...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

...and no pesto I've ever had has had pine nuts... Are you sure about that? Admittedly, alternatives can be used, but the nuts get pulverized during the making so the sauce itself has no visible nuts. So, no I guess I'm not. If that's the case, I'm even more surprised that 92% knew it is pine nuts,...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

My Koin is working super overtime this year, this time on Kuala Lampur/Jakarta which cost me a win. I'm mired mid-rundle, and I've personally found this season very challenging and my Qpct is below my average and I will struggle to get up to the same TCA as my worst non-rookie season. I've found a t...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

My greatest achievement this season is leading my rundle in both CAA (108, next is 100) and TPA (156, next is 144). I liked yesterday's set and got all six right. On the subject of those statistical achievements: BackesER is leading his rundle by a longshot in correct answers given (96 to 62), tota...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How could the Merrimack question have been the hardest? What did people answer for that, since Merrimack was already in the clue? I consider myself a Civil War buff and it still took me a while to remember the Merrimack was re-named the Virginia, and at that I was not sure enough about it to money ...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

My Koin is working overtime this season. Just yesterday I had Washington/Carver and WJRL/WLRJ. I knew Washington was first and Roosevelt third but wasn't sure about the other 2. If I got both, I win. Mt Rushmore only, I tie. Missed both and lost. I wonder if I had answered Washington Carver if it wo...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Did trout have the highest get rate? Surely the highest in a long time. I read that one, and went, "Seriously, Thorsten?" This is only my 8th season but its the highest I can remember...I wonder what the get rate would've been if he left off rainbow. My Koin came up with Fuller instead of Wright co...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Full or pull. Thiiis close. No chance for me on crap sitcoms aimed at kids. Don't tell anybody. Full or pull for me as well... Never heard the term before but I also haven't had an econ class since freshman year of HS. My opponent who had previously got most of the econ terms questions wrong got it...

I was one of the 36% who confidently answered The Lion King for highest-grossing G-rated movie. Now I really want to know what that movie did to earn a PG.
My guess is violence... I was not sure if TS4 was PG but luckily I did not remember Lion King came out as well this summer.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Got quilt on a WECIB but I thought he was looking for 2 different words until I reread the question for the 5th time. Surprised at the low get for Card Sharks, given this summer’s reboot with Joel McHale I used to watch the old Card Sharks and even watched the reboot within the last 2 weeks and sti...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

You know how there's that question every once in a while where you see the results and wonder "how the heck does everyone other than me know this?" That was the UBI question for me on Friday. Even after seeing the answer it wasn't something that rang a bell for me. Weird. I didn't know it either, b...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

really hope that answering only blue ridge yesterday without the parkway isn't going to cost me a shot at the championship....took a win to a tie and instead of being tied for second going into Day 11 I am a point behind.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I don't think there are going to be minileagues that line up better with my wheelhouse than "science through the ages". I'm proud of how well I did, but I'm truly amazed at the winners of the championship: there were 12 esoteric facts from a range of science disciplines and eras that the smiths ask...
