Re: DHKendall - did you just win $8333.33?

Weird thing is, right around question 14, I was thinking he was going to win again and I should check for his name on the winner list. Not that I would have won, but I made the stupid mistake of picking Z before reading the full question about the least common letter. (For those that didn't play, th...

Re: Monday, May 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Not an instaget for me, admittedly--haven't seen Gone with the Wind in forever--but still wasn't too hard for me to piece together. Surprised it was a triple stumper. Never seen or read it but it wasn't too difficult because Charleston is such a southern city. Triple stumper and a bad wager from Er...

Re: DHKendall - did you just win $8333.33?

Looks like our boy jeff6286 was one of the 45 winners of tonight's big prize. Congrats! Thanks! After lots of near misses I finally managed to take down a (by non-Kendall standards) big one. They had a $100k Nike game a while back that had just 4 winners, and I was within one miss on q13 of making ...

HEY! THIS IS A TOUGH ONE!

But I'll try my best.

ETA: Sorry, I'm not going to be in on this one. Too many other responsibilities. There goes my chance at the prize.

I want to see it at some point; I periodically search the digital TV listings to see if it's on. So far I've only ever seen it available on PPV.
if you have a smart TV, you might be able to stream it off of Youtube or something similar.

Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

Here is my suspicion: Jass and the unnamed "friend" to whom she showed the results Jass obtained by logging in to the accounts of the President (and others) at Adrian College may both have been up for promotion to Full Professor. This is silly, baseless speculation. Unless you're personally involve...

I'm 32 and have never seen it, though I don't watch a lot of movies because I have a really short attention span. Interestingly, a few years back, someone on another message board I read mentioned this article by Umberto Eco that discusses the film's popularity: http://umbertoecoreaders.blogspot.co...

Re: 5/3/18 FJ Poll [SPOILER!]

Can't really answer the 2nd part given the choices... I have definitely seen parts of it (didn't like and will never watch the whole thing) and I'm in the oldest age group. So, I can't truthfully say "I've NEVER seen it and in the oldest age group", or "I've seen it and am in the oldest age group"....

I'm more partial to Fred C. Dobbs, but I had a Casablanca movie poster on the wall of my childhood bedroom--in addition to a Humphrey Bogart spiral notebook in my junior high locker and a Humphrey Bogart pin on my jean jacket. I still missed the FJ. I missed it as well, found myself thinking countr...

Re: Wednesday, May 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Went with Meriwether Lewis. Farewell letter to his wife, not knowing if he was coming back, in 1804? I'll go with Lewis and Clark expedition every time. I'm curious why everybody seems to be going with Lewis and not Clark. (The one thing I do know about Lewis is that he would die in a hotel room se...

Whaaaa? I just checked the leaderboard, and the DHKendall avatar needs a goofy cat photo (or similar) immediately!! Congrats!! It was pointed out to me on FB that I should get a pic so that I’m not mistaken for a bot. (And with the cold emotions (really, I didn’t dance around, was quite reserved (y...

Re: TD 376 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 6xx (FINAL RESULTS)

These suckers wind up pretty close. I had to sheep the audio clue because I don't have speakers at work but still wound up just ten points off the podium after negging for omitting the letter on the cactus clue. Harvard and Djibouti were helpful; I only knew two MA schools for sure and my daughter'...

My wife was on Aran Island off the coast of Ireland almost 2 years ago and she brought home a sweater that she loves to tell people about. It's finally paid dividends! Wasn't Columbus FROM Genoa? I dismissed that answer for that very reason. Kind of a loose definition of "visit". And here I thought ...

Re: TD 376 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 6xx (607 & 608 REVEALED)

I had a sneaking suspicion my Royals would be best avoided here. I thought my Mets would sheep, I was wrong on that. This was the question I struggled the most with how to answer since I could name all 30 easily and I know probably 3/4 of the other folks in the game could as well. I simply got lucky.
