D'oh! My response to this FJ was "zwieback." Which means "twice baked." I am deeply ashamed of my half-baked response, but it's stupid things like this that help keep me humble.
Wouldn't that be two-thirds baked?

Personally, I vote in favor of 'soloist'. If they ever did solos (all but assuredly the case), then it would fit everything in the clue. Sure, they'd have to stop tape, but hey ...

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The 1/18 episode of Young Sheldon had the family getting a Tandy 1000 SL with Intel 8086, 8 MHz, & 5.25" drive. There was a quick montage of each family member (including Meemaw speaking into the mouse) using the computer in various ways. Missy was playing this (while claiming to be doing her homew...

Now that we've got the Carnegie thing settled, is it an en-dive or an on-deeve?
en-dive, unless you're pretentious. And I was a French major in college! ;)
I'm pretentious.

Re: Wednesday, January 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I used to teach at Carnegie Mellon, and I still bit on the Heinz negbait. Doesn't help when you just think of the place as CMU. Well, this CMU grad Pavlovianly immediately said "Mellon!". But I would have known it even if I had stopped to think about it. Out of curiosity, how do people at CMU prono...

Kind of silly question but what was the musical instrument that Lee played?
Clavinet.

One of my favorite bands is NRBQ and they featured the instrument.
I'll buy you an RC Cola and a moon pie the next time I see you (well, actually the first, but hey ...).

He’s probably doing better than the EMA guy in Hawaii that pushed the wrong button. It wasn't the wrong button. It was the wrong choice from a (confusing) drop-down menu. https://jboard.tv/download/file.php?id=605 Oh. I thought it went more like this: http://img.fark.net/images/cache/850/9/9S/fark_...

And there's a former Pricewaterhouse Coopers partner somewhere who probably didn't laugh at that La La Land/Moonlight joke.

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'll say it. I like Young Sheldon , and I think the kid is great in it. As a long-time fan of BBT, I feel like that show has gone seriously downhill in the last few seasons. At this point, I think I even prefer Young Sheldon. So there. Not an instaget, but a quick 2+2=4 on FJ. As I was sorting throu...

Re: TPH's "Did you get this?" poll (potential weekly spoilers)

So, TPH, now that you've got 87 responses to your poll, a statistically valid sample in my eyes, what did you learn? Do you feel that any of those questions was undervalued? Persephone is the only one with less than a 66% get rate, but is a $400 clue (and 54% isn't tragic) Yes, that I am a total du...

Re: Thursday, January 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

First of all, how did a bunch of people in show business in Los Angeles manage to screw that one up? And second, how did it come to their attention? I'm having trouble believing Rebecca went to them and said, "Hey! They didn't produce it, they distributed it!" And if she knew that much, she probably...
