Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I'm not allowing myself to discuss the season because I'm way ahead of everybody else and can't keep track of which questions have appeared and which haven't. (Thorsten was kind enough to remove my limit on advance access this season because as a postal worker during December, I can easily put in 70...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I got credit for "sura", which I could have sworn I have seen as an alternative spelling. I, too, was really surprised by the low get rate on that one.

Fourth season in, and I've always been afraid to ask: What is generally considered a good DE %?

And I'm certainly not going to root against her due to that inexplicable wager. I think she's great.

I'm not going to fault Tim's wager as winning the game is the one sure way to guarantee moving on. He may have felt social studies was a strength, too. I personally probably would have bet 0, but I'm a naturally conservative wagerer.

Re: Monday, November 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

One thing I've wondered--does playing in a Thursday or Friday-aired quarterfinal in a tournament give people who know they can't win but are playing for a semifinal spot an advantage, since they know what they've got to beat? With four wild-card spots, then if you're in one of the last two episodes...

Most of the others were pretty straightforward, though "Domesday" is actually pronounced "Doomsday"
I didn't know that. Thanks for the tidbit!

I knew what the final was going for but no way was I digging out 'C.' (the '1' part seemed obvious). As much as I wish we could lawyer 'atlas' as an acceptable answer, it's not like alphanumeric was used as a TOM...
Maybe you could argue that L is a Roman numeral... :lol:

Re: Wednesday, November 7, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

We are seriously arguing that Mike Trout is not even a top 3 player in his own league? I'm not really a big sabermetrics guy. I have nothing against it; it's just not a personal interest of mine. I just like to relax and watch the Royals. But it's clear to me that Mike Trout is head and shoulders ab...

Count me among the NHOI for Final. I'm not complaining; it appears this musical is well within the spectrum of what contestants could be expected to know. I am just that terrible with Broadway.

Re: HQ Trivia

Ugh, I made it to tonight's final round question. I knew Susan B. Anthony was the "obvious" answer, so I went with Martha Washington. Pocahontas would have netted me $59.

Your Monday response is correct.
Nope, I added an extra possessive to Midsummer.

The older a thread is, the more substantial the reply should be.
Yes. Nobody cares about anybody's Coryat/Lach trash from an old game, which constituted the posts that generated complaints.

I don't think there is a consensus. Somebody was doing it a few months ago to non-TOC game threads and there were complaints.

I said FDR, and that is exactly why I did so.
