Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Midseason results are out. I accomplished my goal: moneyed the right 5 of 7 that I knew I got right. (Moneying Polish would have resulted in a higher score, but I had about 2% confidence on that one to begin with.)

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

It’s crazy that some kid won more money in the first episode of Card Sharks than anyone in Millionaire’s entire 17th season What was crazier was the second part of the episode and the bonus round.

Anyone here get George who was born after 1975? 1980? It doesn't seem like something you know unless you were aware of it while it was around.

Of course I had seen Vacation, but when I think of John Hughes, I think of stuff like Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club. I had no clue he did Vacation. Dammit. I totally blew that one. My first thought was Rolling Stone, then changed it to Playboy. Didn't even think of National La...
