I know FOUR national anthem's titles. Eliminated US and UK. Great, France and Canada.
You know one more than I do. Fortunately for me, France's was the one of the four I didn't know, otherwise I surely would have gone with it.

Although it doesn’t materially change the outcome, I believe that I also should have received the -3 final bonus.
I fixed it. I had originally marked Hahn wrong before I found a source marking it correct, and I had done the bonuses before that point.

Re: TD 430 - Back to School (Q's 1-9 revealed)

I'm not sure when I'm next going to have time on the computer to do this, so I'm going to finish this up now. Thanks for participating, everyone. I was sort of reluctant to start a TD during the offseason but I was happy to get 39 participants. As for question 11: I accept the criticism I received a...

For FJ I wrote down Space & Air museum. Judges?

Re: Thursday, September 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I almost certainly would have missed this clue had they not included the tidbit about it being the most popular DC museum, which I know. I was already going down a "civil rights" rabbit trail before I read that last part of the clue. (Though compared to expectations, I was somewhat underwhelmed by t...

Re: TD 430 - Back to School (Q's 1-6 revealed)

7. THEATER Name a character with at least one line in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, which is one of the most performed plays in schools. I find it amusing when the most obvious answer sheeps. For awhile, it looked like that might happen here, but the actual sheep pulled ahead at the end. Nurse - 6...

What does sausage have to do with a waltz? I almost WAGed "polka".
"Vienna Blood Waltz" as opposed to Vienna blood sausage; it was a throwaway joke. The real giveaway was Johann Strauss, Jr., AKA "The Waltz King."
Any relation to Abe Froman, the Sausage King of Chicago?

I have heard Philemon preached on in a Baptist church. It's not particularly obscure.

I was happy to pull a rare modern pop music get (Ariana Grande; that song is featured in the KidzBop commercials that play on Nick Jr.)

I hope Jason's DD1 wager puts to rest all the nonsense about how his wagering is too conservative.

Re: TD 430 - Back to School (Q's 1-3 revealed)

I don't see my screen name in the answers for Q's 1 and 3. Don't know if I was scored for those or not (tho I have a sneaking suspicion that I was, at least in Q1, where I sheeped. I fixed a couple errors; thanks for calling it to my attention. The scoring was done separately and was unaffected by ...

Re: Monday, September 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think the consensus seems to be this was not one of the better FJ clues we've seen. The whole Goliath thing hardly even qualifies as a TOM because it's so obvious. This one was more arcane fact recall.

Re: I dreamed last night I was watching the ToC

Is the ToC now taping? No, Alex is home watching football and James is betting on football. Someone mentioned that the ToC tapes this month. Which dates? The dates don't matter. It's contestant guests and VIP guests only with no Joe Schmoe/John Q. Public types. The audience guests will also have to...

Re: TD 430 - Back to School

Final bump. I was spared by Dorian so I'll close it at 11 on Monday (sorry for closing it earlier than I usually do but my work schedule is heavy mid-week so I'd like to use Monday afternoon to tabulate results).

I don’t know what I was thinking; I knew “Everybody’s Talking” was from Midnight Cowboy but somehow went with “Raindrops” instead. Ugh...
I think the two songs were right by each other in the Forrest Gump soundtrack.
