Speaking of Millionaire ... my air date is Friday, May 3.
Ha! My Spidey sense told me Cinco de Mayo!

Now Tim just needs to get his tape date!
I'm in the same week. May 1 and possibly May 2.

Molecular Bacon was my +1

37 here. I've now missed two O.Henry questions on back to back days.

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

Trek fits fine in the I'M WALKIN' HERE category as it's a journey on foot. The clue was top box and sci-fi so odds are right there it's going to be about Star Trek . Fans are Trekkies or Trekkers. Don't ask me the difference as I don't care. The problem was that I saw "fans of a show who are called...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Well, after a bit of a disastrous start, I've now won 4 in a row, but only managed to move up 1 spot in the standings. I'm sitting in 21st place, in the first relegation spot. Need to not only win, but need others to lose to stay in my current rundle.

Thorsten posted on Facebook:
Working feverishy to get the LL site back up and running. Will likely extend the MD24 due time since we've lost a big chunk of the Match Day here. Will update ASAP...
and just as I was posting that...
We're back up and running!

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Took me a while to get to "______ night massacre" as I had it in the back of my head as Watergate related of course, but didn't quite pull it for a while. Once I did pull it, I couldn't remember what day of the week it actually was. Would this happen on a weekend? Maybe it's Friday? Ultimately, I li...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I missed the gender transitions of the Wachowski Sisters ... I couldn't come up with anything reasonable as a guess and said 'Saw'. I think it is great that Thorsten didn't clue about the transition at all - just a straightforward knowledge of their current names and 'film trilogy'. However, I thou...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Not a good LL for me right now. Wrote "Life Goes On" instead of "My So Called Life", missing what should be gettable questions as well, but really just playing horrible, horrible defense. .000 DE after 2 days, now climbed back to .400.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Are they still asking the banal "Which celebrity used to work at Family Dollar?" type questions? I have no idea how they expect anyone to know that kind of stuff. There's no way to reason it out either if you don't know it outright. And that IMO is always one of the fascinating things about WWTBaM,...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Interesting first day. I won 9(5)-3(2) and was very surprised my opponent got so few correct. I found it to be a difficult day to defend. There didn't seem to be a clear zero-pointer, nor was there a clear three-pointer. All six questions seemed gettable, but not easy. My miss was going with "Help!...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

My opponent's 2nd worst category is Literature and of course he binks Canterbury Tales. Though judging by this board, I should have realized it was easier than other Lit categories. I snatched a tie from the jaws of victory.

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

Look, ultimately you just have to know certain things. The difference between you and I is if there's something I don't know that everyone else seems to know, I say "cool, I learned something new", not "how was I supposed to know that". For someone who watches a trivia show and frequents a message ...

"spotted cheetah" leads to Chester and he's Cheetos.
Or it's just something you tune out as immaterial background noise.
Do you actually read through the clues, or do you just simply assume all words are immaterial background noise?

MD 23 was a killer. I feel lucky to have escaped with a 3(3)-3(3) tie.
3(1)-0(1) for me! They assigned me 3 for Plantagenet, which is fair. I'm still mathematically in the running for promotion, though I have to vault over 4 people to get there.
