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...

He has advocated, to various degrees, pre-emptive strikes and wars against North Korea and Iran Citation needed. Vague hit pieces without any concrete facts or sources can be safely laughed off as the partisan hackery they are. https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-legal-case-for-striking-north-korea-fi...

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.

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

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. On this question, is each valid band member considered a separate answer? For example, if I answer (a) Dr. Moe Howard, another player answers (a) D...

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.

My family had the game Sorry! so I played it quite a bit, but had forgotten it used cards.
Thankfully, this is one of the games my brother, my mother, and I played this Christmas.
Oh, I'm so Sorry! to hear that.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Besides the identical 6(5)-6(5) my opponent matched me with the same defense number for each question. That's a tie all right. Neither of us were able to get PROMOTION for the three points and the outright victory. We each gave a 1 for FAST MONEY while that played as the hardest Q at only 33%. Than...

I would love to know how cloaca hit 44% (didn't get it; NHOI) and Bay City Rollers got 50% (got it). I thought both were highly obscure. I'm with you on cloaca, but I know the song "Saturday Night", which along with the geographic hints, got me to BCR. A few weeks ago, my wife and I were taking a t...

Props to the 40% who knew de Fermat. I've taken a lot of math classes in my life and never heard of him that I can recall. It could be something non-math people are just as likely to know. "Fermat's Last Theorem" is almost pop culture--or at least as pop culture as something involving math can be! ...

Tough set for BarrettM and I yesterday. I somehow remembered reflexive to give myself the 1 (2)-0 (1) win. The Oscar question was one of the fastest zeros I've ever given....which one did you go with, Mark? I picked Rainer, not entirely sure on any of the others. I usually suck at movie questions, ...
