Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Tough set for me, getting only Morehouse. Lost 1(1) - 3(2), although I turned a win into that loss by not thinking through the National Lampoon one. I knew it was Vacation and ended up going with Playboy and instead of thinking of the full movie title. Of course I had seen Vacation, but when I thin...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I knew I had heard of the "Linus" character. Somehow convinced myself that it was Morgan Freeman in "Now You See Me". I knew he played a President in Deep Impact, and that was it.

Yoruba is pavlov for Nigeria, though I was hoping that it wasn't a trick question.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

The relegation to E is doing me good. Tops in TCA, and DE right now and sitting in 1st place. Waiting for the inevitable fall back to fighting for promotion. Sigh... and now I lost a game I should have won or tied. Opponent 0 for 4 on classical music is now 1 for 5. Also, I never heard of those oth...

Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another retail miss for me, as I've never been to Williams Sonoma and don't know what they sell. That's because there aren't any Williams-Sonoma stores in dead malls. A high-end cookware place is going to be one of the first to close when a mall starts going downhill. When my Williams-Sonoma gets r...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Coriolis played easier than I expected. I can never predict what science-y stuff non-science-y people know. Opposite for me. I thought this was taught in every elementary school science class and I figured it'd be closer to 80-90%. Of course, we don't teach that the world is dying due to man made c...

The most common wrong answer for the "Je pense, donc je suis" question is a real RTFQ moment (unless there were people who simply didn't know or remember the Latin and just put the thing they knew).
Raises hand.... I need to RTFQ more.

Now you know "This Julia Roberts film..." for $200 is probably "Pretty Woman." You may not like it or agree with it, but association is how you make the big bucks.
Because that's the only film she's ever been in , right?
If you have no guess, Pretty Woman is better than that.

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

"Pretty Woman" is a film?! As opposed to...? A song by Roy Orbison to which the title of the film clearly alludes and which appears in the soundtrack of the film? And the answer of course is, yes. The song by Roy Orbison is "Oh, Pretty Woman" so there's no possible way to confuse the two titles. An...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Relegated back to E (Bayou E, Div 2).

Last 2 times I've been in E, I've moved up to D, but I needed a strong showing at the end of the season to do it, so nothing taken for granted now.

Re: TD 420 - Free your mind (Q3 Revealed)

At the risk of eliminating myself, I don't think I got scored on Q2. The funny thing is, I don't actually remember what I put down, so I could legitimately have not put anything down at all for that question.

Any reason I should know what instrument the concertmaster plays? Could be anything. Odd when $400 is my only miss in a music category.
This is a joke, right? You're complaining that you don't know stuff that the rest of us seem to get, then you're asking why should you know stuff?

Again, I'll bite. How many European island nations do you know? Did you guess one of them? UK, Ireland, Cyprus. I can at least assume it's probably not the UK, which still leaves it 1-in-3. Not good odds for the top box at all. So did you guess? You complain about 1 in 3 odds, but that's way better...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

In this stack are the FU stacks (really hard ones, no joke questions in the first five), ... I don't believe there are any of these. I'll admit they've badly estimated how difficult a particular question is, but I can't remember a stack that I wasn't able to get through to $5k that required any men...
