I instantly got meme, being familiar with Richard Dawkins' original idea for the term.

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

Rainbow Coalition was another of those with age perhaps coming into play as I may be older than my opponent thinks and she is probably younger than I thought. I scored three points and she missed zero points. I'll squeak out a 5(4)-4(3) any way I can get it. My opponent also assigned me three point...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

After my first day in LearnedLeague, I've already learned that I'm apparently bad at defense. I turned what should have been a win into a tie. I was surprised English horn was so sparsely answered. I'm not familiar with it other than that it exists, but the French horn isn't a woodwind, so WECIB? A...

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

How was I supposed to know that Table Tennis for $200 was referring to China and not any other big country? Or maybe a small country? I saw no TOM at all in that clue. The US's table tennis diplomacy with China was a minor plot point in Forrest Gump . Admittedly it was a bit on the tough side for $...

For those that speed watch the show slow down and catch the promo between the DJ! and FJ! rounds for the upcoming online tests and play Romper Room. I see Rachel, Gerard and Adrianne. There’s Scarlett. And Nan! The grid of many faces was cool. [/spoiler] Brandon as well, with his unforgettable reac...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

I'm in Division 1 of Sugarloaf Rundle R. Rookie question: How early in the morning can I submit? A day after a federal holiday can easily mean a 15-16 hour workday at the post office and I have no idea when I'll get home Tuesday. You can play Day 1 right now if you want to. You can play up to ten g...

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had to laugh at the champ's answer of Menomonie Wisconsin because it's a small college town that they will never ever ask about on Jeopardy. Plus it's nowhere near the 414 area code. Am I the only one here who has all the old stock area codes memorized? I know quite a few but I don't have them sy...

Apparently I completely messed this up. I thought it was going for Lola from "Damn Yankees."
at least you didn't think of "Lola" by the Kinks 8-)

That was a loud and enthusiastic studio audience today.

I am also (indirectly) responsible for that.

I had three very enthusiastic cheerleaders. (my wife, her mom and aunt)
I thought it was cool that Frank also got a loud reaction when he doubled up, too.
