Yeha, I'm kind of flabbergasted that this was a triple stumper. Church -> kirk -> Dunkirk.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

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. J may not be for everyone but you've clearly found your game. I must say I'm absolutely green with envy, and hope I too can gt on Wheel someday. They s...

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.

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

Brutal FJ. I figured the one in the south was Bavaria, but I couldn't of another B German state. (Not gonna lie - Brunhilde did pass through my mind.) I know Bremen is a city, but didn't know it was a state as well.

Re: FJs for the 11/20/17 week

Had Bulgaria and Iraq (the runners-up) on Thursday. Got everything else right. The Thursday show aired on the affiliate's digital subchannel (but forgot to update the listing on my TiVo from the regular episode of M*A*S*H so it didn't tape, so I had to get it from Reddit). Friday's show aired as nor...

Re: '80s Music category 11/16/17 [Spoilers]

I only didn't run the category because I called Julio "Enrique Iglesias".

After yelling 'AIR SUPPLY!" at the TV, I had the horrible realization that I am probably older than all three ToC finalists. Or maybe I am just old.

I never considered Vermont, because I knew it became a state in 1791 (the year before Kentucky). So for me, the year in clue was an an anti-TOM.

Re: Inter-TD quizzing

While Randy's continues, I'll pose one of my own that I inadvertently stumbled upon while preparing for a Geeks Who Drink outing. The band Cake has covered a number songs previously recorded by other artists. By my count, there are 12. Name the songs and original artists. Wasn't "Perhaps Perhaps Pe...

I feel like Cate Blanchett was also nominated for Elizabeth: The Golden Age, but I may be wrong about that. (I remember that it was nominated for something, but it might have been something else.)

I was 100% convinced 12 Angry Men was right. Oops.

Got Peaceable Kingdom and Dover Beach from the UToC.

There was a question on this week's University Challenge that asked who wrote "do I dare to eat a peach?" Glad to see the players here got it (it was a stumper on UC).

Yeah, I was going to just guess the Carters as an old-school country family until I recognized that the Maybelle in the question was Mother Maybelle Carter, so it went from a WAG to fairly certain.

There was another clue in this show that was recently used in LearnedLeague. It was the one about "Come From Away." I can't remember now if the LL question was in the regular league or one of the recent mini leagues. I think it was in the Aviation 1DS. Correct. Good memory! https://learnedleague.co...

I did not get picked. But I only stayed for one session. Anand, the champion from this week, did get picked in my session.
Odd he got picked so close to his J! appearance.
It's literally pulling slips of paper out of a hopper.
