Wahaddi just wasn't close enough. Nor was dropout.
Yup, I thought I had a chance with The Dropout (almost took a flier with The Graduate, which would have been a hoot) but no love without the modifier.
Graduation was Kanye's third album. His second: Late Registration.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Playing from the sidelines. I opted for Plath over Dickinson, but in retrospect, I should have gotten it because of the "Yellow Rose of Texas" rule. I never knew why turbinado sugar was called that, but I figured it out. My Pop Music score isn't so good, but I'm 58 so "Soul Train" was an instaget. ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Mixed up the traditional wedding processional (from Wagner's Lohengrin) and the recessional (from Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream). Cost me in the private rundle, but I still got the win in my regular rundle.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Any reason I should know that German salad is made from potatoes? 0/5 in Women of Science. I saw no way to figure out "engineering" in the first box. What was the TOM for "Naples" in the top box? I "went with the obvious" and figured top-box Italy had to be Rome, right? Why was it wrong? What was e...

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tried to think of a novel actually set in Britain fitting the clue and couldn't really come up with anything. Even if Ireland was part of the UK at the time, calling Stoker "British" is kind of dirty pool.

Re: LL83: Learned League

I had nothing better than isosceles, which I’d only ever seen in the context of triangles Math is my strongest category and this was still an educated guess for me — I figured if you extended the non-parallel sides, you'd get an isosceles triangle. Normally I'll stick 3 on any math question I'm uns...

Did anyone else laugh at the eventual champ saying "fortune favors the bold" on her daily double, and then NOT making it a true daily double? Oh, how bold.

I am embarrassed by how long it took me to remember Mildred Pierce.

Came up with the right answer on FJ tentatively after about 10 seconds from the "Civil War hero" angle. Remembering a certain anti-trust act (which passed in 1890 and was indeed named for brother John) confirmed it for me.

"The thing I don't get: How do they spoilerproof this?"

Maybe they shoot it on a closed set and overlay canned audience sound?
It's been done before.

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

Washington Nationals def. Houston Astros 4-3 to win the 2019 MLB World Series. It's the first title in the history of the Nationals' franchise, which began in 1969 as the Montreal Expos. Pitcher Stephen Strasburg was named series MVP. This is also the first time in North American pro sports history...
