Re: Fun with NBC's "The Weakest Link"

I finally watched some of it last night and was bored stiff. Ah well.

I would love to see a week hosted by Bob Harris and/or Kim Worth. They would bring the appropriate amount of levity to the show.
I don't think Bob can be dragged back from Australia, mate.

I do want to see Alex's wish fulfilled and have Betty White come in to do at least one game. Maybe she could do Celebrity week?
I wouldn't call it a wish but rather a means to generate laughter from his audience.

The highlight of today's show:
Alex didn't sound very well at the beginning of the show, but then he sounded fine. After he did his tapdance, I was thinking how lively he was, and then mere weeks later ...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

51 for Golden Gate? I was guessing that one would be in the 90s. Serious mental miscalculation on that one since I like guessing the overall percent (not that it mattered for me; I got beered). For aa and pahoepahoe, I was curious what people guessed if they didn't know it, especially since there wa...

Nothing against Burton, I just don’t get the hype. But my exposure to him is limited to Roots. People's exhibit A for the defense is the petition for Burton with many signatures. The prosecution counters with this: https://twitter.com/levarburton/status/1327024717883170816 He could have spelled Tre...

Re: Where to Find Win Ben Stein's Money Episodes

Grrrr ... I got The Call for WBSM, but couldn't make it for that date (I was scheduled to give testimony in a trial). They said they'd call back, but they never did. The judge wouldn’t give you a continuance? I was testifying as an expert, so it wasn't up to me. I had to appear when I was needed.

I have somewhat of a case of prosopagnosia. Didn't get any of those faces. And that anagram category played a lot harder than it should have. John was very impressive, but others this week have been as well. The only thing I saw that he could improve upon is his penmanship. I don't know if anyone ha...

Well. So I (finally) made it to Julius Caesar in my Complete Shakespeare two days ago and, nope, that didn't help I adopted a cat this year. My original intention was to name him "Zeus", but I brought him home on March 15, the Ides, so I decided to name him "Caesar" instead. Like cats don't feel em...
