Gotta say, that is a very poorly written FJ.

Re: Friday, March 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This is exhibit 1 where sometimes the leader should wager to tie an all-in wager from 2nd place. I'm not sure about that. Betting the extra dollar saves you from a tiebreaker if both you and 2nd place get FJ. The extra dollar costs you a tiebreaker if you miss, 2nd place misses and bets sufficientl...

Did anyone have any specific reason to go with Iwo Jima over Okinawa? I figured both were likely to have a volcano but since Okinawa is bigger it is more likely to have a gorge. Should have just gone with the more famous one.

Re: Monday, December 18, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I see it on Learned League sometimes when an opponent has ART as the worst category. It’s one of those areas like opera that can be a nightmare for some people. Ben’s wager of zero has me wondering if ART was the last thing he wanted to see? The response of Guernica demonstrates he at least knows a...

Re: Thursday, November 30, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Precalled FJ; in fact, I would have laid heavy, heavy odds that Lebanon would be involved in the clue, and would have been sorely tempted to go all in even from a lock.

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)

I've vaguely heard of the Compton effect, but couldn't tell you where it was discovered. If the question had asked for the university (and wasn't a 15pter) I might've WAGed a pre-1922 president and randomly gotten it right, but name the state? Not a chance. There aren't that many more states (esp. ...

Me: Hmm, what's British-sounding and has "tam" in it?
