I stereotyped Nebraska as flat bunch of nothing and got lucky.
I did the same with Iowa. Slightly embarrassed to say I wasn't sure if my home state of NY had one or not.

Lindsay Davenport has also won all 4 majors when you add in doubles (she hasn't won all 4 in a single event)

Re: TD 375 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 5xx (507 & 508 REVEALED)

I didn't mean to quote all that, I think I spaced out and didn't get it all, sorry :oops:

Appreciate the reconsider. I absolutely agree that the others are neither specialties nor subspecialties though.

Re: TD 375 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 5xx (CLOSES MONDAY AM)

I accidentally hit submit on my submission because I was stupidly doing it on a phone and the screen skipped while scrolling. Can you please use my second submission? The first one has a half answer I was typing and is missing the last few questions and my drop and sheep. I submitted the full one ab...

Re: Monday, April 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm trying to wrap my brains around the notion that a bunch of bright college students seem to know more about Qwidditch (sp?) than about baseball. One more sign that I've lived too long. My alma mater was one of the first intercollegiate Quidditch teams. Had the pleasure of running into a game onc...

Re: TD 371 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 3xx (309 & 312 REVEALED)

I agree that the previous names for the stadium should probably be considered incorrect answers. I wracked my brain for a long time trying to come up with the current name figuring it would be a low-ish number, and had to move on to something else when I couldn't, but I would probably be slightly ir...

Re: TD 371 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 3xx (301 & 302 REVEALED)

I would also like to argue that Square is absolutely wrong for H. That is a radiant cut, and there is no such thing as a square cut. "Square cut" is sometimes used as a general term to refer to any stone that is square in shape, and can include princesses, radiants, etc. It is an imprecise term and ...

Another vote for baguette being wrong, sorry. An emerald cut has way more facets and a distinct facet pattern that is exactly what is pictured here.

Re: TD 370 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 2xx (203 & 204 REVEALED)

I could only think of Winnipeg and the one I used, Steinbach, because there was many years back a comic store there I used to buy books from online. I had no idea if it was big or small, and frankly I don't even know where it is. It just stuck in my head from seeing it on his website so many times....

Wow. I'm shocked. This was a really fun one (and not just because I somehow managed to win while risking a couple of semi-guesses), thanks!

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), March 7, 2018

This seemed way harder than last night, but as someone else also said, almost all my misses were in the first 20 questions so I was frustrated and feeling lousy right off the bat. Turns out I actually did better on this one. 39. Still not happy with that, and assuming I don't ever get the call, I'm ...

Re: Wednesday, March 7, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

3 is awfully harsh in the timeframe indeed. I got Japan immediately, Jamaica maybe 10 seconds in, and couldn't pull Jordan until probably 2 seconds before the end of the music, and would have had likely no hope of writing it completely in time

MasterCone drops out of the top spot with his answer of "Cool Runnings," but still has a drop and sheep. Her ;) I'm lucky to still be anywhere near the top though since I came really close to submitting a wrong answer in the question about a sport that was in the Summer Olympics but not anymore by ...

37. Blah. I am already in the pool so wasn't actually taking it, but still a weak and irritating showing. I'm embarrassed to have been unable to pull Grafton or Kellyanne Conway, which I clearly knew, and had no hope of being able to get Wheel of Fortune Cookie typed in time after figuring it out wi...

His other recent album "To Pimp A Butterfly" was received as an instant classic, though I doubt it would appear on J! due to the name.


"It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp" has appeared, if I am recalling correctly, multiple times on the show, so I don't think they are anti pimp.

Finally. It's been ages since I pulled a 5/5. I'm sure my basking in this glory will be short lived when I boot something obvious tomorrow.
