The Most Common Wrong answer is often the Most Wrong Common answer.

As soon as I thought of the Speed network (which apparently hasn't existed since 2013), I thought I had it and stopped trying.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I woke up at 12:30 last night and checked to see how I did. My blurry eyes saw 3rd place, meaning that none of the miraculous things I needed to happen had happened. Then my eyes shifted and I realized that I had been looking at the Rundle in the Jungle results (congratulations to top two finishers ...

Re: Your guess for Thursday's FJ [SPOILER]

I thought of pisces early because I knew there were two fish and thought it was conceivable they could each have a string coming from their mouths. Scanning through the rest as best I could, only sagittarius gave me pause, but I couldn't think of a reason for two strings. I think I briefly considere...

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I found this FJ clue to be awkwardly worded, as if they literally wanted a three word phrase - no more, no less. And again, if the writers were trying for equally difficult FJ for each of the three semi-finals, this one seemed much more difficult. Yesterday, it's basically a Kids' Week clue and tod...

I was also a $20.64 winner in my first try at Cash Show. Good thing I had an extra life, since I can't imagine how using a smaller font size wouldn't result in less ink usage.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I'm proud to have finished second in A Laguna, and especially proud to wrap up the season with an entire case of beer in the last four match days! Each day had something tricky--dredging up the names Piers Morgan and Van Eyck; making a wild guess on Eminem because maybe the photo resembled what I pi...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Even though I won my match yesterday I'm disappointed because my opponent missed my zero point defensive question which was the one about the Presidential Range. I would have thought that even if the range wasn't well known most people could suss it out by extrapolating off of Mt. Washington. I'm n...

Austin 2 has faced 20 opponents. Among those 20 there's been 3 correct FJ answers. It's even worse than that! Just 2 correct out of 19 opponents by my count. Did I miss something? Did the one who finished in the red say they would have got the FJ? Q /M/M Zelda Fitzgerald /Eleanor Roosevelt/Anne Mor...

I unexpectedly won 4(3)-0(1) with Tabasco, octane, and tack. I'm not sure I've ever heard of the Irrawaddy, and I just watched the Freedom video to confirm that I've never heard that song in my life. I'm also don't think I'd ever heard of The Conjuring until reading this article on Tuesday. Too bad ...

I thought I was so clever to check whether NissleyT had taken part in the Peanuts 1DS. He came in 17th! Let's switch the 0 from the Dickens questions to the Charlie Brown question!

Any chance of getting Friday night's game? I was assuming it would come on tonight, since all the episodes in L.A. were delayed by a day, but then we saw the first minute of Friday's episode at the tail end of the middle-of-the-night WWTBAM from last night. It turns out college football is pre-empti...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I worked my way to four answers, but then had no clue on the two others and just totally guessed "humanism" and "magic". I was shocked that both were right. I'll take it. Exactly the same story for me except I didn't know Luckenbach. I was especially shocked that "magic" was correct. Me too on magi...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

The Archive is far from complete for such instances, but I'm curious how the victories break down by podium for three new players? Does the person who draws the champ's spot have some kind of psychological advantage? My instincts tell me this will not be a 33% across the board stat. Paging cheezguy...
