Belated congrats to Trainman and MinnesotaMyron on their Top 15 finishes in the Chickens 1DS. I was a Tyson Foods away from joining y'all. :(
Congrats. I managed 37th, myself.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How is the current ML and recent 1Ds going for the rest of you? I'm 0 for 2 on the ML thus far. It wouldn't have gotten me a win yesterday (I find using the Golden Arches theory in a theme of pop culture just because it involves McDonald's to be pushing it, but I digress), and as a big fan of comics...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

It was awkward phrasing, to be sure. The point I was trying to get across was that I missed questions for which I was assigned low points rather than missing other questions instead.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I managed to lock myself a spot in the championships thanks to missing things I should have known the past 2 days. My opponents rightly gave me a low score on geography questions based on my record, and I managed to get neither of them but get the 3-pointers.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I somehow managed to confuse the East and West Indies and guessed Havana. Luckily I managed to get Degas, for which my opponent gave me 3 points to squeak out a win. Now, with two days remaining, I still find myself in position for a championship placement. Guess I should start crowdfunding for a re...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Only missed the musical term, but boy was my defense bad. It's always annoying to lose a match while getting more answers correct. How my opponent didn't know the Taco Bell menu I'll never know, but I guess some people are lucky enough to be able to cook at home on a daily basis.

If I had had time to think, I MAY have gotten Australian Rules Football and Salvador Dali, but most likely not Vienna and definitely not Northern Exposure.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Well, had my first loss of the season due to my defense being as bad as it could possibly be. 7(5)-8(4).

If only my head hadn't specifically gone toward transition metals for that book. How my opponent got it, I'm not really sure.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I honestly have no idea how I've found myself in 1st place in an A rundle. I keep assuming there's going to be a course correction, but stuff I know just keeps coming up combined with a few (red red rose, especially) lucky guesses.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I was lucky enough to forget that the Lion King remake happened and/or never considered it to fit the criteria. Didn't think Toy Story 4 had done THAT well, but it was the only big animated film I could think of that would have still been playing. I've been playing way above my pay grade so far this...

No idea how I knew Suzuki method but I did.
If you're anything like me, you got it ftom a track on the Gorillaz first album, "Left Hand Suzuki Method." Never heard of it otherwise.

I read "subcommittee confessor" and immediately thought of Oliver North. The other clues didn't help in the slightest.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Apparently "planet" wasn't accepted for "exoplanet". Though more confusing is 34% picking -black hole-. Black hole here. I think the question was a huge negbait for black hole, which was predicted decades earlier but the actual observation was sometime in the baby boomer era. I cycled through pulsa...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Ah, nuts. Was so focused on prepping for today's job interview yesterday that LL completely slipped my mind and I suffered my first two forfeit losses. The only solace I can take is that with Science being the last day I wouldn't have pulled into championship contention, and with my Upsets opponent ...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Is anybody else having extreme difficulty with defense in the Science ML? You obviously know what your opponent's general science track record is, but never their specialty.

You didn't have to know anything about the Olympic results to name a winter sport in which someone is a "skip" (and in which the competitors get enough "face time" that people know their nicknames).
I got it from "swept up."
