Re: LL BWA Entries

It's a Water, Water, Water, Water World (Probably one of hundreds that put that in...) Yeah, I completely forgot about the existence of the movie "The Postman." I put "Field of Schemes" Heh.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

*sigh* read...the...clue... "adjacent?" "opposite?" That's tangent! *loses because of it...well, that or defense, being better at either would've been enough...* And now I'm in the red. On the last day of trig class, our teacher mentioned a mnemonic to remember all the functions -- the Indian Princ...

So we haven't had a DH Kendall sighting for a while? Hope things are well north of the border.
He has just chosen not to participate here of late.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I agreed with the ranking all the way through to 2 (I rate the person ranked 1 in the bottom 3). Odd how the writer manages to rank Guthrie when we've only seen two days of her hosting. I mostly agree with your ranking, although I put Rodgers ahead of Cooper and Ken just barely ahead of Buzzy. Mike...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I knew sinister was related to being left handed and I’ve seen the etymology of ambidextrous somewhere before but I didn’t think of that connection. Went from Spanish derecha to Derek. Kicking myself for missing Dexter and Venice. I got you beat ... I had droite (French), destra (Italian), and dere...

I was beaten to the Ruby Yacht.

Savannah Guthrie's already tall. A few years ago, she was on a flight I was on. I thought it was an impressive debut.

Count me as another who didn't like the wording of the FJ clue.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

After the first episode, I would have given her a 9. But I found the constant inappropriate chortling or giggling really wearing after a while so I downgraded her to a 7. Like what's so funny about a response of 'Spitz' (I don't remember if she did it after that one specifically, but there are many ...

Do we have a 2032 Current Events thread yet? Brisbane (Australia, not California) may be next month named the host for the Summer Olympics eleven years from now.
Assuming there's still an Olympics. And/or an Australia. And/or a 2032.

Is this the first game in which all four people on stage were women?
looks like it is, since according to the archive, it didn't happen during Katie Couric's guest hosting.
The outchange is complete.

That DC avenues question was just plain awful. Even if you deduced they were looking for south to north (which wasn't clear; what does 'next' mean?), Virginia, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, and Maryland are legitimate responses. Ugh. [Looks at map] I don't think New York really works because the...

Julia won the game handily but I think Mayim cut her off early during the interview segment. She was just getting into the story about her cat and it seemed like there was a lot left. Maybe tomorrow we'll find out more. If anything, she cut her off too late. I think I'm taking Mayim down one rating...

Re: Wednesday, June 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did Mayim have some happy juice before the game? She seemed a little too giddy and amused by too many of the clues today. I noticed this too and must admit I found it a bit annoying. I found it extremely annoying. So much so that for me it DQs her from a permanent gig. I gave her a pass during the ...
