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 ...

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

INTERNATIONAL HOLIDAYS $400: In Dublin La Fheile Padraig happens in this month Dublin = Ireland Padraig = Patrick Irish holiday for Patrick = St. Patrick's Day That's March. I didn't spot the cognate, so to my ears and eyes, "la fheile Padraig" could've been literally anything. Even now, it's still...

"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.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Last Monday, I was in 3rd place and in the promotion zone. 2 ties and 4 losses later, I'm only 4 points away from getting relegated. :(

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

The question is if you had known Ethiopia was the place would you have known Addis Ababa is the capital? I do know that Addis Ababa is in Ethiopia. But again, Africa has about a bajillion countries, and I have no idea where on the continent it is. I also didn't know that Italy had ever done ANYthin...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Hearing people “got for it” when they have NFC is no better than seeing second place go all in in FJ when a $2k bet is optimal. It doesn’t add to the excitement of the game for me; it just pains me to see weak game play. YMMV of course, but I applaud when a player walks when they’re faced with a to...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Next: My comments: Perhaps I have West Coast ignorance, but is this really a proper $7K question? Is this easier for the New York elites? Even the one piece of information I had on hand to help was useless as I have seen a 1950s era episode of What's My Line? that had fun with both the head of Macy...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Okay, so today's episode was the first taping group from my tape date. Adam, going first was actually a holdover from the previous day's contestants, while John Dale was the first one from my group. I love John Dale and his mother, but I heard from my friends in the audience that Adam was a bit of ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ellen and Nick on today's episode were on my tape date. I hope they do well. Ellen did something I've never seen a Millionaire contestant do before. She got to the $20,000 question with two lifelines. It asked was what the bird Merops apiaster ate, as indicated in its name. (I don't remember the ch...
