Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 1 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

It looks like my score is wrong. I'm assuming I missed the 12 point question but got the others correct. I think I should have 51 points but the website shows me at 50. The standings site currently shows that you have one ungraded response; I'm assuming it's your answer of "leg" that rjaguar3 hasn'...

Re: Learned League 72 - Official Thread

Based on his name and other profile details, I feel pretty sure that a recent Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist is one of the rookies in R Highland Division 2 . I'm back in A Highland again with most of the same names from last season (though a few have been shuffled off to Glacier), along with a hand...

You may not have remembered it, Kirk, but you have seen the title before. :)

I squeaked out a win against the estimable WhitlockS, thanks in large part to my mom, who watches the show regularly.

Re: LL71: For The LLamas

When I first saw my match schedule for LL71, I immediately identified MDs 6-10 as the toughest five-day stretch of my season: four opponents with career QPcts over .850 plus a J! ToCer. Sure enough, a five-match losing streak: 7(5)-9(6), 6(5)-8(5), 7(5)-9(6), 7(5)-9(6), 8(5)-9(6). I did get a couple...

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

I lost yesterday, in a well-defended 4(4)-6(5) match. I missed both of the acronymic questions, SPDR (which I'm still smacking myself for not seeing right in front of me) and HP sauce, but he only missed the latter. I did, however, manage to snag a Best Wrong Answer for the first time! Between that,...

Re: 2016 Summer Hiatus Challenge - Round 3 Instant Replay Thread (SPOILERS)

Am I correct that "Seko" was negged for Mobutu Sese Seko? That's a bummer. Having just looked it up, I learned that Mobutu was his surname from birth, and that "Sese Seko" was (part of) a long title/name he gave himself meaning "the all-powerful warrior who, because of his endurance and inflexible w...

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

WAIT. I just saw that I apparently won the Secessionist Movements 1DS?? What??? :shock:

I was so not expecting that. I was hopeful for a high finish, but I never thought I'd actually WIN a 1DS.

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

I was pleasantly (is that really the right word?) surprised to learn that I'd been bumped up directly into A Highland (instead of B) for my second season. I count quite a few J! vets (including some ToCers) as well as boardies (there are a few more than are currently listed in the roundup, though so...
