I knew, and have read, precisely one things Thomas Mann did - and I was pretty sure Willa Cather hadn't written any books with Venice in the title. Sometimes it pays to not be well-read.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Just on a side note, the Broken Earth trilogy is FANTASTIC. I hadn’t read fantasy since I was in college, and Jamison got me back into it, and fast.

Re: TD 391 - Game Time

For the Scattegories bonus....am I supposed to name as many teams starting with the same letter, or just 12 different starting letters? i.e. if you had asked for NHL teams, would I do:

Blackhawks, Blues, Blue Jackets, Brontosaurus

or would I do

Avalanche, Blues, Flames, Whalers, Jets, etc

Re: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Thanks to John Hodgman talking about a famous author who lives near his house in Maine, not naming him, but leaving enough clues to figure it out, and me figuring out those clues-slam dunk FJ. SOME CLUE.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I have really lost the ability to defend in this LL, and the last one. I am going to pull a Costanza and just do the opposite of what I think I should for the next week and see what happens. Sub 500 for the 2nd straight season.

I asked my wife, who grew up in Thunder Bay, lived there until she was almost 30 if she'd ever heard the Patricia Portion term. Nope. I love learning stuff!

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

And I couldn't tell anyone anything about Cool Runnings - other than it's about the Jamaican bobsled team. They only talk about it during every Winter Olympics. Not even when Sanka has a hot water bottle in his spandex suit??? Derice: I can’t believe you’re still cold mon. Sanka: Cold? I’m freezing...

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

My process: man, those look like food posters. It looks like those ladies wanna eat. They look like cheap Greek restaurant ads. What Greek food could they hold in their hand?

I don't know how to explain they looked like Greek food ads...but they just DID.
