Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Tuesday Jamie went for the $100K question with gusto, but I saw the flashing red lights as he went spinning towards the wrong answer. He didn’t really take time to consider the other logical choice, which brings me back to Sesame Street, oh never mind Katherine’s getting relatively easy questions. ...

We have a fruit? Um, OK, cherry I guess. The irony is that Japanese cherry blossom trees don't produce ... cherries. At least the edible kind.

Very entertaining tourney. Congrats to Claire on the win, and to all of them for some well-played games.

Re: What if they changed the tournament format so that the last-place finisher in the first day of the finals is elimina

I'm beginning to get a whole Battle Royale vibe about a tournament run this way.

BTW, since the show is all about the ratings, I think anything that makes the second night less intriguing for the audience isn't going to work.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Normal is this season's head-scratcher for me so far. I thought most people would know that. I guess lots of people went down the path of trying to name an Illinois city rather than thinking about what a teachers' college is called. I'm off to a slow start this season. 1-3-0 and 23rd in my rundle. ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The pizza delivery question was just bad. If you do a quick search on top pizza delivery days - you get a wide range of answers. I saw lists that were still calling Super Bowl Sunday as number one. Another listed Halloween. Not fair to have to know what one particular source says. $100k and up ques...

I guess it's also possible that they'll have Johnny record those intros later, and we'll never hear Kelly do them.

Not to take anything away from Shiva, but holy cow, that stack was incredibly easy. Only the $100k even made me pause.
Michael, I'm so sorry to hear that. Family issues can really suck. I wish you call the best.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I interpreted the Communist Manifesto question as asking for a 20th century work, which didn't seem to make sense given the wording of the clue. But I still didn't consider works from any other century, and it cost me a win. But at least getting credit for pear instead of bulb got me the tie! Crud....

I wouldn't have crossed out Quaker. That quickly got me to Pennsylvania/Philadelphia, and that (with upholsterer) got me to Ross with a high confidence level.

There was an audible gasp here, and I was watching alone.

I hope the two guys weren't regretting the joke responses now (if they knew the answer). It didn't matter, but it sure could have (when it shouldn't have).

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, that was good timing; pub quiz just had a question asking for the only two people to win two Nobel Prizes in the same category. I only had one, but it was one more than my team would have had if I hadn't watched Millionaire today. That was hilarious. Unfortunate, but hilarious. You don't get ...

Did the Jeopardy! clue crew screw up? Spain used the Peseta. Unless they used the peso long back.

Thank you for the Newsday puzzle link. Working in pen was a mistake as I had a difficult time figuring out where I went wrong with my errors. One by one I worked out the correct fills to get the puzzle done with no help other than father time having no limit. It definitely took me more than an hour...

Lach Trash: peso
I don't remember the wording of the clue, but Spain's currency was the peseta (not the peso) from 1869 until the conversion to the euro in 2002.

For FJ, I think they thought it was Kid's Week, not Teen Week.

We also had a LOTF-related project. All of the boys in the class were sent to an island. Most of us came back.
