I don't remember ever seeing parts of the other two contestants in the picture when the middle contestant was answering. Yeah, the totalitarian Chinese regime just th...

Re: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any reason I should know that Spanish show is on Univison and not Telemnudo? That felt like MASSIVE negbait, and I see no way to know how it would be one over the other. It's only negbait if the clue tries to steer you to the wrong answer. That was strictly a 50/50 absent specific knowledge of the ...

From what I read, he had special teams of pacers running in formation around him to break the air resistance, a car leading the way with a special laser light to project on the pavement going at exactly the proper pace velocity, and he was getting his water and nutrition handed to him via bicyclist...

I watched the movie version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf once. I don't think I've ever hated a movie more (where it was a quality movie, not a piece of junk), and it was the material not the execution.
