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.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

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."

Ooh, got my first 5%ile in JI Money. 10/12 but I moneyed almost perfectly (and my just awful spelling of Khachaturian was somehow accepted)
I recognized the music (with the other visual cue), but I just could not bring up the name of the composer. Congrats for that alone.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Why does everyone think you have to be hilarious at the audition? The musician part is actually my most realistic non-occupation should I be lucky enough to be asked. I have written numerous sets of lyrics (and have won an award for performing such in an informal competition with seasoned professio...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

If you do get an audition, I would make absolutely sure you don't give them even a whiff of this being the case. I don't think they'd put anybody on the show because they need the money. Just my opinion. While I agree in principle, they DO ask for your occupation and, well... And that’s why your an...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I'm just hoping for a second in-person audition. I'm more interesting now than in 2011, darn it. And much worse off financially. I know hanging so much hope on this is foolish, but it's starting to look like the ONLY possibility I have.
