Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

This has been hands-down the weirdest season of my 18 seasons in LL. I am in the running for a Maso, but thanks to a league-leading CAA and a career-low DE I am also flirting with relegation. I simply cannot buy a break. For instance, yesterday my opponent gets the Chinese dowager emperor but doesn...

So, I passed Tanzanian ambassador's car today, and was thinking about how Tanzania was a portmanteau. Then I tried to think of any other countries whose name is a portmanteau and couldn't come up with any. Are there any others?

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I think that not accepting "Roosevelt Doctrine" for "Roosevelt Corollary" is ticky-tack. But amazingly, "Theodore Roosevelt" was accepted. *shrug* I'm fine with negging Doctrine, because that's not what it's called. But it's also not called "Roosevelt", so allowing that is complete BS. I didn't kno...

I fully expect that colonialrampage, dhKendall, MarkBarrett and ouachiouat will be joining lonesome me in Prairie B next season!

Oh, lucky me... my first match this season is against NutickM, who breezed through the rookie season going 23-1-1 with 128 TCA.

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

For those of you in the know: if we auditioned last summer for episodes filmed in 2017 and 2018 (at TCONA, for me), and they say you're in the pool, should we just sit tight, wait for summer to come and hope for the call? From the casting producer: We have been getting this question a lot. They wil...

Then again, so is pretending that any US politicians has "basically" chanted "Death to Iran". Just another bald-faced lie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-zoPgv_nYg Video is from 2007.

President Trump also specifically cited Israel's recently intelligence coup that indicated Iran was lying all along and repeatedly violating the deal. He withdraws despite a number of European diplomats trying to convince him to stay, including (interestingly enough) Boris Johnson. To be clear, Isr...

2. KISS. You can’t have a KISS TD without the band KISS. Name a member of one of these bands. You must include the letter of the band in your response.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I managed a 90th percentile on the border quiz. I went on an Alaskan cruise a few years ago. It featured a stop in Skagway. We took a shore excursion there of a train trip. The train goes up a mountain and stops a few hundred feet in Canada. We also stopped in Victoria, so I knew it was pretty far ...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I still managed a top 10% finish in the Canada-U.S. Border one-day, but shot myself in the foot somewhat by going with Winnipeg for Q2 (thinking Vancouver Island would have been excluded), and then, consequently, going for Saskatchewan on Q5 figuring there wouldn't be a second Manitoba question.
