Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), January 29, 2020

34 by my first count, which is frustrating, though at least I'll have "passed" if
Spoiler
Show
Clean & Clear could somehow be shoehorned into the "cold cream" clue; I need to reread the clue.
Otherwise, just a large collection of misreads and brainfarts that tanked my score completely.

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Missed the episode. Confused by the wording of the nor’easter clue — my degree’s in meteorology, and I grew up in New Hampshire, and I think the more precise wording would be that the predominant wind comes from that direction (on the north side of the low pressure system), or that the storm itself ...

Re: TD 436 - Kansas City (1-8 revealed)

Working for Sears, er, TransformCo, finally pays off.

The respondents for the Tribune and Mr. Potato Head are duplicated. As I believe I said Mr. Potato Head and I assume three others followed me, I assume it’s a wash.

Re: TD 432 - Throwback III

I do it to prevent the post from being unnecessarily long. I figure if somebody wants to see it, they'll expand it. What I'm more curious about is why the entrant list is even posted to begin with. That I'm not sure of, but it seems to be convention, so I roll with it. As a participant it's helpful...

Re: TD 429 - All Music (Third Quarter Standings Revealed)

I conflated Los Del Rio and Taco Del Mar. Would love to open up a Macarena themed Taco shop though. Brilliant. I am not much of a taco guy, but I will absolutely go to this. Should’ve sheeped for everything. The los del rio thing was a typo, so I just have to lol at that. Clearly a simple typo. I t...

Re: TD 429 - All Music (Third Quarter Standings Revealed)

Country music has been berry, berry good to me. Thankfully I remembered the "other" name for Nashville Sound, I once was a big Big & Rich fan so I knew what they did when they were on their hiatus, and I had a friend in college who shared her name with Minnie Pearl and was one of the first fun facts...

Re: TD 425: O-H-I-O (Questions 1-6 Revealed)

Wrong answers – 9 points ROME immaf This surprised me. I checked, and there *is* a Rome, Ohio. I suppose one could argue that Romano cheese is not *particularly* associated with Rome (Roma), but am I wrong? It's a village, the question asked for city. That's the only thing I can see precluding it.

Last day to get your entries in!
Updating the entrants list is always nice assurance for players that their answers have been received.

Despite music being one of my worst categories, I managed to get 4/5 of the Biggest Hits, missing only the $800 clue (1976/ Silly Love Songs ). Looking it up just now, I legit don't think I've ever heard this song before. Also, it's terrible, why was this a hit. Because otherwise he might have gott...

If the blank was “I’m ___” instead of “I’m a ___”, I probably would have said “right here, right here, right here, right here at home”.

36 which is my probably my best showing. Completely brain-farted on #4 and said New Orleans -- right year but horribly wrong and most definitely not French. Crocheting for quilting as a WAG. Digital instead of document. Rye instead of barley. Misread that it was only asking for snowboarding events a...

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

I haven’t even seen the episode to know what the joke was (if this was from Friday, ABC Chicago moved the episode to 3 a.m. due to Aurora and I didn’t change my DVR). I’m simply a little tired of the trope involving nearly tens, if not hundreds, of times the world population.
