Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Need to work on my moneying...in Supercars I ended up with 320 points and 71st percentile. Optimum moneying would've given me 118 more points and a 27th place finish. Never thought that Lambo originally making tractors would be the second most commonly answered question and that Porsche/electric sup...

Re: HQ Trivia

I answered Promontory last night, I have 4 extra lives in my inbox this morning so looks like maybe everyone is getting them who played.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Parcheesi is essentially sorry with dice. Knew this one immediately, as we play sorry and parcheesi quite frequently as a family. I got caught in the three muscles and just went right to triceps. I was also surprised Fire and Fury was 88%, I was one of only a few who got it wrong in my E rundle, but...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Pretty awesome headslap moment when I spent an hour or so trying to figure out what type of machine a seismograph is. Although it wouldn't have mattered as I couldn't get Kenneth and my opponent did. I wondered where "Whats the frequency Kenneth" came from...

What chain of eateries will happily take its namesake product out of the freezer, toast it, and serve it to you? UNUSED Waffle House Not sure if you've ever been to a waffle house, but they make everything fresh to order. Sure its a greasy spoon type place, but everything is made to order and not t...

Props to the 40% who knew de Fermat. I've taken a lot of math classes in my life and never heard of him that I can recall. It could be something non-math people are just as likely to know. "Fermat's Last Theorem" is almost pop culture--or at least as pop culture as something involving math can be! ...

Props to the 40% who knew de Fermat. I've taken a lot of math classes in my life and never heard of him that I can recall. Cost me my first beer, but I still won 9(5)-3(3) playing an opponent with an almost impossible Def score of 0.397. Knew Red Sparrow, Ayers Rock, Columbo, and 6 Days War cold, st...

MSC: Another Pac 12 here, although I wasn't confident and totally forgot the Big 10 was originally considered "West" in terms of football (along with Notre Dame). For the Spielberg question, Hugo immediately came to mind and of course I moneyed it, but confused Spielberg with Scorcesee. Went with To...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I know it's only an E rundle, but only 4 of 24 players in E Mag D2 got more than 1 question right yesterday. I only got Q1 with McDormand, and considered Dixie but didn't make the connection to Mason-Dixon thinking that was more of an 1820s creation than 1760s. Wouldn't have mattered as my opponent ...

Re: HQ Trivia

Cash Show seems to have switched to paying out only exact dollar amounts, no cents. The upshot is that the prize questions don't start paying out until later now, since they can't distribute $x among more than x people. Only questions 10 and 12 were actually worth money in today's last game (the pr...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Yesterday was the third time in 9 matches I've got more correct than my opponent and lost, this time 1(2)- 3(1). I have a grand total of 24 TMP on 24 TCA. Apparently I'm the only person in E Mag 2 that can't play defense.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Finally got a win, 8(4)-1(2). I figured they wanted the non La Paz capital and it took me a couple times of looking at the questions to remember Sucre. I was pretty surprised that La Paz wasn't the MCW, as Santiago never crossed my mind. Groening was a gimme to this big Simpsons fan. Count me as a m...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

I must be the easiest person to defend in LL, another day where I'm defended perfectly. But, today I played perfect D, but didn't matter in my 4(4)-6(5) loss to drop to 0-3 in E rundle. I got locked in on the actor looking like Matt Damon, but I also couldn't think of any known brother actors other ...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

Day 1, considered english horn but went with french horn instead costing me a tie. Day 2, my opponent who was previously 3-12 on literature got excalibur only to beat me 1(2)-2(1). 0-2 to start my E rundle career was not what I had in mind. I've been defended perfectly this season as well as both da...

Bugger. I took a few chances on this one and I knew I was due for a wrong answer.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I put this out on the LL board, but with the Russian goalie, I figured it was Not Tretiak, since Tretiak was the one pulled, leading to the US win. Also, led me to way defend this horribly as well. Somehow, I got lucky to still win, with my opponent underestimating my love of Major League. Agree th...
