Re: Tuesday, September 12, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

When Adele won album of the year the second time for 25 everyone thought it should have been Beyoncé for Lemonade. Even in her acceptance speech, Adele asked "What the f--k does she have to do to win album of the year? That's how I feel.” That helped me resolve the Adele / Beyoncé toss-up I went wi...

Back in Black for $200 was a coinflip on Marvel/DC.
The clue implied that their movies were good. That narrows it down for me.
Not even that. $10 billion combined box office, DCEU has 3/4 movies total in it. Pretty sure we would've heard if Bats V Supes broke Avatar's record...

Wonder about that President's first name question - Woodrow Wilson's birth name was Thomas Woodrow Wilson.
But that's not the name he went by.
Noticed the same thing. The question said "first name", not "preferred given name".
The question said "...who went by first names..."

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

This season has a personal vendetta against me or something...zero wins. Either I simply can't get enough Qs right, I do everything perfect and tie, or I botch defense. Amazingly enough, I'm not last :roll:
