Re: Friday, March 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So if we're talking about who's an authority on how SCO'M is capitalized, I -do- think GNR counts as one. But the inventor who says how 'gif' is pronounced isn't an authority on its pronunciation? :P Not anymore. As a simple word, 'gif' is at the mercy of every English speaker on the planet. A titl...

Re: Friday, March 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Discogs style is to capitalize the first letter of all words, period -- they're not an authority on what the capitalization "should" be. Discogs style is copying that of the major record labels from the 1960s and 1970s. Any authoritative style manual would say to capitalize only the important words...

Been to: Honolulu, Yorba Linda and for the latter, specifically to the Nixon Library (inc. birthplace).
I was apparently only a mile away from Brookline at the closest when I went to Boston; hadn't a clue it was even there.

What is up with someone wanting all the O' to o' for the GNR song? A partial word does not get upper case or reject all of them? GNR says O' , I vote O' ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w7OgIMMRc4 , https://www.discogs.com/Guns-N-Roses-Sweet-Child-O-Mine/release/1497020/image/SW1hZ2U6MjE4MDQ3MDc= )

No clue on this one so I get to click the box of shame in Mark’s poll.

With squid and plankton clues in marine biology, the others should have been about sponge, crab, and starfish.
And the J!6, squirrel?

I missed Journey. I thought of Queen, read it again and realized it had to be American, and then started cycling through bands that might have had a greatest hit albums on the chart for 600 weeks. Pink Floyd? No. Rolling Stones? No. The Clash? No. Would have written down Duran Duran. I don't get it...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

While it might seem shortsighted to invest in digital memorabilia (like, you know, a tweet...) because when infrastructure collapses vanishing that stuff into the aether making them worthless...the $2 mil thought bought it in the first place would similarly be worthless, so...six of one there?

The binary number 1111110001, which equals the hexadecimal number 3F1, when converted to Roman numerals, spells what English word? It is one of the very few common words which are valid Roman numbers. Because it didn’t say “a valid Roman number”, I stopped thinking of words from Roman numerals afte...

It was a fun game. I never heard of a Cairn Terrier and thought Toto was a Scottie dog. I went with Karl Dachsund - were we supposed to assume a night watchman would create a killing machine? If you think a dachshund isn't a killing machine, you haven't seen it go after rats, rabbits, or any other ...

Wait that's a comedy?? I turned it off after 10 minutes because it was going to be too intense of a psychological horror movie.
Well, the Golden Globes also categorized "The Martian" as a comedy.
Yeah, the categories for the Globes are really "Prestige Drama" and "Literally Everything Else"

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

For the Pop Music question on MD8, I racked my brain, trying to think what group might have had five #1 albums in a row while also having 22 top 40 hits in the 1970s. All I could come up with was Chicago. Wings never occurred to me. I was surprised they had that many top 40 hits...and I was a regul...

And, not to be seen as evading the issue, I thought "devanagari" might be a type of yoga and said "bikram".
My reasoning exactly.
Thought yoga first here, but the only one I could name was 'goat' so decided to just wag 'Zen'

How many got the quilt question here? I was nervous assigning defense. I knew it because I live in Alabama and have heard about the quilting ladies. I just didn’t know if it was widely known or if it could be puzzled out. It seemed to play hard, though not as hard as Joker’s Wild. I got it, thanks ...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Glenn leaves off the "What is" here, right? I don't hear it. There is an 's' sound before Easter, though. I think this is similar to other cases: the contestant starts speaking before the broadcasted audio switches off of Alex to the contestant resulting in the "What is" inadvertently cut off.
