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!

I just guessed a town where I had seen a LDS building before. Guess they're not all temples.

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

First thought Airbus then went with Total because I've seen the company listed as a top holding in international mutual funds. IKEA though? Missed Columbo with Jessica Fletcher, in retrospect a bad guess. I've definitely heard of Columbo but I don't think I've ever seen it Descartes for the tie 6(4...

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.

Has nobody heard Please Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas) before? It's a stone cold classic.

Traveled through Colorado a few years ago on my move across the continent, spent some time in a Super 8 looking at maps. Who knew it would ever come in handy.

Re: TD 370 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 2xx (203 & 204 REVEALED)

I could only think of Winnipeg and the one I used, Steinbach, because there was many years back a comic store there I used to buy books from online. I had no idea if it was big or small, and frankly I don't even know where it is. It just stuck in my head from seeing it on his website so many times....

For 204, how are you defining “city or town”? Any populated place?

(Singleton, here I come! ;) )
Yeah, if I don't get a singleton on this...I'm blaming you.
