Re: HQ Trivia

One question from Thursday's 80s edition of HQ: "Which TV show featured the catchphrase "I pity the fool"? Knight Rider The A-Team Neither Knight Rider 467 The A-Team 76,040 (correct) Neither 4,400 Maybe the closest in my life I can recall to feeling the Mandela Effect. As explained by Scott, the p...

Also I thought the plaintiff in brown V board was a girl: Linda Brown.
The suit was brought by multiple families with the named plaintiff being Oliver Brown, Linda Brown's father.

Re: Monday, July 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I believe I had a better correct answer than the writers. I considered Teddy Roosevelt but I was uncomfortable knowing that McKinley had died in September and Roosevelt leaving office in March wouldn't add up to 9 months. So I at the last second switched to Washington who took office on April 30th ...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Despite shaky defense all season (.622 DE, 6th to last in my rundle, and 111 TPA, 4th to last), I finished first in C Taiga div 2 thanks mostly to my .747 Q%/112 TCA which brought my overall percentage to an even .700. Looking forward to the move up to B in August and hope to finally figure out how ...

Another with Libra. My seven week 5/5 drought continues. Cool to see a reference to Cleveland art punk greats Pere Ubu, despite the triple miss. It seemed gettable without knowledge of the song since it's titled for the WWII film of the same name. I'd like to put in a poll request for this clue, ple...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I was convinced when I first read the Webster question that "second-most (but definitely not first-most)" was a tease out pointing to The New England Primer but was unable to recall that book's author. I then regrouped and put together that grammar and spelling with "pioneering American author and e...

I'm playing in C Taiga division 2 after just missing out on promotion to B from my rookie rundle (messed up on my wagers on the final day and landed in third place off the MPD tie-breaker). This first match day gave me fits and I thankfully escaped with a win with some unexpected wagering from my op...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Winsanity"

Because I knew what went with 27 and 42 that left me no doubt what went with 33.  From there I either get all five right on the first try or for sure on the second try. I Had the same thought process of knowing outright 27 and 42 and being able to slot in 33. I initially had 47 and 54 reversed but ...

Re: Wednesday, April 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Do I have a historical blindspot, or was that Lucy Hayes clue quite difficult? The only way most know her name is from the "Lemonade Lucy" sobriquet. I'd say it's one notch easier than the most obscure First Ladies. It's an odd situation where, despite Rutherford B. Hayes occupying a low spot on th...

William and I would get along pretty well considering we both love art. Although El Greco was actually part of the Mannerism movement rather than the Baroque. Unless Mannerism is considered part of the Baroque movement, which I am unsure about. I raised an eyebrow at this too. Depending on personal...
