Re: Friday, January 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I did a TD a long, long time ago that asked for #11-20 most populous countries, and remembered that Ethiopia and Egypt were on that list. (I also remembered Nigeria was #1 in Africa.) And Ethiopia is not 90% desert.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

See if you can get all three: THE OSCARS 1 of only 3 movies to be nominated for both Best Picture & Best Foreign Language Film in the same year My response would have been the last one. If pressed to guess others, I might have guessed the other response not given. I would have guessed Z but I think...

Re: HQ Trivia

I just removed it from my wife's Iphone. Does anybody want to get credit for an extra death? :lol: I won't be putting it on my Droid. I gather there's a daytime episode with a female DJ? I really can't take the loudmouth bearded guy anymore. I hope he doesn't replace Robert Siegel on NPR :lol: . ( ...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I initially thought of the Olympics, but by modern scheduling, April is really early to start the Summer games (now they usually start in July or August). So I ended up going with "fog".

And here I thought this FJ was a gimme! I knew the Netherlands has had a bunch of queens recently (I can tell you they are Beatrix and Wilhelmina and Julliana but I can never remember what their order is) and I knew they tended to abdicate.

Originally had "Sam Hell" but changed it to "blue blazes" since that sounded more like a euphemism for hell to me.

Re: MUSIC DOC SUBJECTS – 12/13/17 [Spoilers]

I know I've seen "I'll Be Me" (it was up for an Oscar last year). I might have seen "Shut Up and Sing" a while ago, but I'm not sure. I will more than likely see "Long Strange Trip" within the next few weeks (it's on the 2018 Oscar doc shortlist). I hadn't heard of "Time is Illmatic" but I know Illm...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Even though I won my match yesterday I'm disappointed because my opponent missed my zero point defensive question which was the one about the Presidential Range. I would have thought that even if the range wasn't well known most people could suss it out by extrapolating off of Mt. Washington. I'm n...

At the outset of the show Alex said something about today being the "Ides of December". Wouldn't that make it the 15th of the month? :?
From Wikipedia: "For March, May, July, and October it is the 15th day of the month. For other Roman calendar months it is on the 13th."

Kander & Ebb is one of those writing teams like Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Leowe, or Kauffman & Hart that pops up from time to time. I couldn't have told you either one's first name, but if you ask for Kander's partner, I for sure know his last name.

Fantastic game, you absolutely mopped the floor with the wheel! I make no exaggeration when I say that's one of the best performances I can recall.

I will say this for Ben: you know when he knows the answer at the very least.

The colors threw me off, but with the Asian name, the category ANCIENT SYMBOLS, and pair, this was really a WECIB.

Glad to see Ben do so well. He was in one of my game groups before he moved to Boston a couple of years ago. He also used to be the host at our pub trivia night.

Guess I gotta get him crap for not getting that Rabindranath Tagore question, though.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

The word 'suspended' totally threw me off and I kept thinking of the Spider-Man musical or things with marionettes or Pippin, you know, stuff like that.

Perhaps if it had said 'interrupted' them I might have had a chance.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

It helps (for me at least) to remember that "epi-nephr-ine" and "ad-renal-ine" both basically mean "on top of the kidneys".
