Re: LL83: Learned League

Sigh... I don't know how to defense apparently. Reverse Mortgage - 73% get it right, I assign 0 to my .750 Bus/Econ opponent. He misses it. Wuthering - 41% get it right, I assign 2 to it, he gets it. Lose 3(3)-4(3) Player stats are merely a starting point! Maybe focus on relative difficulty of the ...

The Greek name for the city was Neapolis. If you can't see how they got from "Neapolis" to "Naples", I don't know what to tell you.
You know how TPH hates "sounds-like" or "looks-like" hints. It could have been ANY Italian city.

I was a little surprised he didn't ask for both Frost and Nixon
If you know one, you know the other.
I certainly didn't. I figured Nixon with the timeframe and didn't know who Frost was. After I saw the answer, I vaguely recollect Frost's name, but I would never have gotten both.

How do only 43% get Hot7G when spotted 'mansion' and 'Hawthorne'?

Opening day, where everyone is tied for first place (not counting the alphabetized standings right now)

Good luck everyone!

Re: TD 434 - Another Short Quiz - Scores Through Q2

After performing so poorly in most games, I just gave up and went to Random.org to randomize the answers I actually knew. Let's see if it works.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Promoted up to C for the first time! Let's see if I can stay there. Prior to joining LL, in reading the questions, I fully believed that I belonged in D, so staying in C will be a good challenge.

The Citadel sheeps, but the Chunnel goes unused :!: and the Ford Bronco is a singleton. I guess I should not be surprised at any TD result, but goodness...
Next TD, I'm just going to use a random number generator for the answers I know, because clearly I'm not out leveling anyone here.

Big week for me. I got the email inviting me to a J! audition next month, and now I'm tasked with writing a LL One-Day for January.

Invitation for Nov 22 in Milwaukee. I'm not sure if I'll be able to audition since I was just on Millionaire in May.
18 month pool, they can wait six months to call. Just be sure to tell them
Yeah, already did when I replied to their email. Now I gotta perform.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Was in 1st place yesterday. Dropped to 2nd after losing yesterday's match day, and everyone in the top 4 is within 1 point of each other. I've never been promoted to C before, and I just don't want to choke this away. Lost, but 3rd place lost as well. My buddy in 4th place won, so he's in 2nd, and ...

Re: TPH's FJ! analysis

The thing that pisses me off is that TPH has made more money than I in game shows despite this. Did you see his "Wheel" appearance? If you actually watched him on "Wheel", you'd know this is a terrible take. Yes, I did. Like I said, I'm not ACTUALLY pissed off about it, it just seems weird that som...

I know you try. God knows you try. But if you seriously missed that many clues, and added "NHOI" that many times, I seriously have to wonder how in the hell you passed the contestant quiz.
