Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Typo in the clue about rare earth metals - there aren't three Ms in "uncommon".

The show is starting to get boring. I recognize James is insanely good at what he's turned the game into, but I'm not sure it's necessarily what I want to watch.

Re: J! and other notable contestants on The Chase (possible J! spoilers)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnBmaa19_uY Opening to the Labbett "Chase" pilot for Fox (2012) I recognize Raj Dhuwalia, Ken Basin, and Jamie Rosler. Do not recognize the fourth guy. Let me know if he was in something else. Searching for "us sumo champion dan" comes up with a man named Dan Kalbfle...

Re: reddit jeopardy done?

Apparently this has made Sony more vigilant about old episodes too. I had my old episodes on YouTube and they've all been taken down over the last couple of days.

My initial thought was Oliver Twist, but I switched to Tom Sawyer after Alex's hint. Double oof.

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

FC Cincinnati was Louisville City FC's rival in the USL before FCC moved up to MLS, so that was an instaget. They were known as Futbol Club Cincinnati, but decided to change their name upon their move up in order to pay homage to the city's German heritage. They are now known as Fußball-Club Cincinn...

There are only 4 people in the entire league who have more ties than I do this season. My previous season high was 6 and I am at 10 with two days to go.

I came up with Stuart for FJ, but isn't this a strange way to phrase a clue? "Family name of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s brother Henry" Um, wasn't that Bonnie Prince Charlie's family name, too? Is there some reason they worded the clue this way? My thinking is Bonnie Prince Charlie is there to get you ...

Always remember Cyrus McCormick from one of those compendiums of bad student essays you used to see floating around the internet. Some poor student wrote that "Cyrus McCormick invented a mechanical reaper that did the work of a thousand men", only they missed writing a critical 'e' in the name of th...

Re: Apparel/Appearance of Contestants

The biggest thing for me was that certain patterns, especially very fine patterns with close lines, can cause the cameras into a moire effect, essentially making it look like the shirt or tie or whatever is pulsating.

How was "Everest" right in China for $400? I thought Everest was in Nepal? A third 0/5 for me. Mt Everest is on the border of China (Tibet) and Nepal (the border runs directly through the summit). I used to have a National Geographic map of the mountain with its three names: Everest, Sagarmatha (Ne...

Re: TD 414 - The Academy Awards - Q5 Revealed!!

Yeah, I knew that was coming. All three of the films that won the most Oscars won 11 (and the two that had the biggest strike-outs also had 11 nominations), but I didn't realize that until *after* submitting.

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Took my first loss on the season after starting 6-0-5. Had no chance at the Moon Q, but I should have pulled Basho. Still would have lost, though, as my opponent got a 7(5) and he gave Moon a 3.
