Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I waffled between Denmark, Indonesia, Canada, and the Philippines. Only Denmark made sense given the wording. But Australia was MCWA? I'm curious about people who got Fill or Kill. Did you just guess? Did you know it? I consider myself very well versed in finance and I don't think I have ever heard...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

2nd beer of my career. I only knew 2 answers going in, (Nicaragua, Suzuki), but guessed well enough to get the others.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

The clues were there. I ngvar K amprad, founding something in Sweden. But no matter how many times I read the clue, it just didn't click. I think it was because "founding" had me stuck on something more institutional. Billy Corgan -> Smashing Pumpkins -> Rat in a cage was easy. An art livestreamer ...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Cantata was just a brain lock for me. I froze up and couldn't think of any words in that direction. The others? Not a chance. Forza, Stephanie Grisham, Unready, and Hairspay were all absolute NHOI for me. Eh. No has heard of Stephanie Grisham. I mean, a press secretary that doesn't actually run any...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Good Burger? Somehow that's a movie that 62% of the people have heard of? OK... Yeah I was shocked too that it didn't play over 80. i'm of the right age demographic to know that movie quite well. I don't remember ever seeing it, but I saw ads for it and cross-promotion on Kenan and Kel and All That...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

One money away from finishing 1st place in Nintendo Entertainment System. The wrong money cost me 9 points and my best shot at actually winning a One-Day. This was the only time I had gotten 12 right.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Sigh... 3rd highest TCA in my group in Upsets, but in 9th place with no chance at the championship. I'm done in by my 0.500 defense.

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

Look, this is basically Algebra 1. If you didn't pass it, then you're not going to get it. Lots of people have issues with algebra, you're not alone. But basically your issue is mixing up addition and multiplication. To take the square root of x^2 - 6x + 9, you don't take the square root of each te...

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

Probably poking the bear, but I saw this clue from May 2017 come up: It's the square root of x^2 - 6x + 9 Okay, x^2 and 9 clearly have square roots. But what do I do with the 6x? That doesn't have a square root. All I remember is randomly pulling a 3 out of your butt, and somehow breaking this prob...

Everything is Tim’s fault
I almost caught you in TCA too.

As for my season, 3 times I've been placed in E. And 3 times I've been promoted to D. Now let's see if I can stay there.

Re: TD 423 - Mini-TD #7 - Q5 Revealed

Have any of you ever attended the Olympic games? Lived in Southern California most of my life. Los Angeles in 1984, baseball at Dodger Stadium and soccer in the Rose Bowl. I definitely didn't appreciate the opportunity to go watch them as I was 9 years old then. I'll have to do it again some other ...

My first Dolly. I guess my Language score is higher than I realized, so I was assigned 0 for the cane/perro question. Unfortunately I didn't know it.

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.

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...
