Re: Friday, January 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe it's my intensified interest in WWTBAM, but this was an instaget. I can see why people might not have gotten it, but the TS surprised me.

"Luncheon on the Grass" a $50,000 question!?!?! They're joking right?
Like you I did not need choices.
Instaget. Though I may have confused it with The Boating Party.

Am I crazy, or did Addie talk about that bolt during her interview on Jeopardy 3 years ago?

And for the record, I hate Breezewood with a burning, white-hot passion.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Congrats to jeff6286 on winning the Tolls 1DS! I coulda been a contender (top 15) had I not second guessed myself on Ft. Lee (that still looks NOTHING like the GW Bridge in my NSHO) and totally misjudged the difficulty of Q12. TBH, I'm still not sure how only 27% of the entrants could get the toll ...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I hate to criticize too much, and I have enjoyed the Rock and Roll ML overall, but does it seem like it's been a little too metal focused to anyone else? Yes. Plus there should never be a question in there that has a 2% get rate. And I, too, am reluctant to criticize since these are hard to do. I d...

For FJ I went with Robert Indiana, who is known for a sculpture with the word "love" spelled out. Negbait!
He lived on the island where my daughter lives. His house is huge, and right on the main street, but it's really fallen into disrepair. It's sad.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

A whopping 2% for John Kalodner in the RnR ML. Whoever he may be. And that was my industry and my timeframe. And my Ozzy Osbourne MCWA guess scored higher than the actual answer(s).

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Great job, Mara! And nice save, Idris! Good to have boardies team up like that. Thank goodness you didn't end up as one of those "Well, I'm just going to go ahead an guess" types. $25k is a lot to give up. I thought Bob's favorite was a quokka. Pudu was an instaget, though. I was shaky on Mad Max, b...

Well, it's not like anyone was around to make fun of him.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

(That particular question was also an example, to me, of anti-TOM, where the only real pertinent part of the question was "Wisconsin", and all the stuff about Ireland led a lot of people away from the answer.) As explained in the recap thread, the author included the Irish radio station nugget beca...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I hate to gripe about the RnR ML, but seriously, 3 questions with get rates 16% and under? I know there's a thin line between making it too easy and too hard, but that's kinda making it not very fun to participate in.

Check out some of the groups, like group 1: https://learnedleague.com/mini/france/index.php?mltabs=0 So the only one with more than 1 TCA is so...

Re: Friday, January 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This clue was one of two this week where semantics tripped me up. "Doctor" had me thinking physician, not psychiatrist, so my brain was turning up no results for a "famous doctor" in that time frame. After the music ended, the only WAG I had was Albert Schweitzer, but I knew the other details of th...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The only thing that threw me was that 'barred' was missing, otherwise that was an instaget. And looking it up quickly, some sources say there are four main types. I was leaning correctly on Doyle, but not totally confident. Same with the store in Canada. Yup, I thought Neville was walking out of the...
