Re: Friday, May 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Only thing is I wonder if he would have been able to come up with "pruning hooks." +1 on this. I'm a mod on a theology forum and a former seminary student and I'd NHO that. I came up with Hailey (as in Halley's comet). I think the only reason I even know of it is for being Ezra Pound's hometown. Tu...

Laura and Nate have both posted on Reddit about their experiences. Suffice it to say they were well aware they were facing a kraken.

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I can hear the wagering vikings riding in to castigate Adam for not going all in on DD2, but not doing so on a $2000 Science clue is more than understandable by my book.

I'm 4/4 on Final this week. I expect to miss a 90% one tomorrow.

Re: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Liz found DD2 with her opening selection of the DJ! round, not that it did her any good. That kind of Greek mythology word origin stuff is often no gimme, so I wonder if James would have known that one? I'd be extremely surprised if he didn't know the word from Greek for cure-all. I initially thoug...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Half the archive hits I get by doing "born on the fourth of july" site:j-archive.com are false positives (i.e., category names, clues saying that a famous person was born on the Fourth of July, etc.). The few that are actual hits are much further down the board, and the next-most recent is from 200...

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

TV Cartoons? Let's see if I can run this. (Spoilers: Yes.) Also got all but SWAT in Acronyms. I heard 1990s Songs for $400 in Walmart yesterday. Not a glimmer of recognition in the rest of the category. Can't say I've heard of Blind Melon or Public Enemy. No guess on FJ! Can't say that I recognize ...

Re: Monday, May 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm 32, probably the most non-movie person on this board (haven't been to a theater in over seven years), and I've definitely heard of Born on the Fourth of July.

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another pre-call for Dead Poets Society here.

I don't know what other guesses are even plausible for Final. Maybe if somebody had a major brain fart and tried Born on the Fourth of July?

Re: Monday, May 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think it's clear that they do tailor categories for specific days. A few years ago, they had "turkey" as the FJ answer on Thanksgiving. And last year, they had the category "Weren't those college kids great?" for what was originally scheduled to be the Monday after the College Tournament (but the ...

When Mark polls this on Saturday, I suspect there will be an even greater disconnect than usual between this board and viewers in general.

I had to take a second to make sure I had Zola and Dreyfuss straight, but other than that, it was smooth sailing. This has showed up so often.

On Tuesday, I was tempted to go with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but reasoned that "history making" would better fit O'Connor.

I knew what I wanted but couldn't quite think of it. I knew Titicaca was wrong. It would have been a clam for me.
Without looking, I'm pretty sure it's Bolivia, so I certainly would have clammed.

Monday - Blank page
Thursday - I had it spoiled, but no way I would have missed it

Got all three other FJs; missed all three bonus questions (no idea/Titicaca/Audubon)

If I had actually been there, I'm not sure how much I would have had time to write, but notice that Francois abbreviated National Geog. And nothing was said about that.
Maybe the fact that he wagered nothing played into not making an issue out of it?

Re: TD 420 - Free your mind (Q4-Q5 Revealed)

When I hosted a TD awhile ago and asked for Chicago athletes, nobody went for Rodman then and I was mildly surprised. I'm even more surprised he was a singleton here.

I nearly put Bill Wennington. I'm glad I didn't.
