Can someone explain to me how 6% of the people thought Georgia O'Keefe was getting an undergrad degree in 1981?
Maybe she was the only 20th-century female American artist that they could name.

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

For me, the most surprising thing was that Wellington got under 50%. I figured that would be right up there in the 90s with gingivitis. Agreed. Not sure about 90% plus, but very surprised not even half remembered the Wellington-Waterloo connection. Maybe some didn't think "Duke of Wellington" would...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 6 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I'm kicking myself for missing Oral Roberts. I had it down to Roberts, Billy Graham, and Bob Jones. I decided that Jones was a bit too obscure, so I flipped the Kosman koin and went with Graham. The thing is, while I was in law school at UVa, I taught an LSAT course at Liberty. I know full well tha...
