Re: TD 384 - A Millennial Medley (Final Standings)

Oh, Tide pods...the latest sign that humanity is doomed. Between that, the Harlem Shake, and pretty much that entire lyrics question, you managed an impressive collection of cultural lowlights from the last few years :lol:

Great TD!

Re: Thursday, June 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was absolutely sure the challengers would pick some combo of Brisbane and Adelaide...but I thought Ali would get it right, and I certainly wasn't expecting Darwin. Hm. The bit about the Indian Ocean was a nice hint, but for some reason I just knew that Australia's largest cities were Sydney-Melbou...

Re: TD 384 - A Millennial Medley (Standings Up Through Q3)

Can we have a moratorium on all the complaints about Guy Lombardo questions? floridagator was the only person volunteering to host for a period of several weeks and for that we should be grateful. We all appreciate floridagator's efforts, even if those music questions have kicked my ass (and my ear...

Re: TD 384 - A Millennial Medley (Q5 Standings)

No one picks the Lakers, but the NETS sheep; Cavs sheep, but their partners in monotony the Warriors are worth 2. Then again, that novels question was completely upside down. Never change, TD.

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Golden State Warriors sweep the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-0 to win the NBA championship. It's their second title in a row, and third in four consecutive trips to the NBA Finals, all against the Cavs. Kevin Durant was named Finals MVP for the second straight year.

Portuguese for rainha seems like a good bet but if they had asked us for the languages, I'd still be staring at the screen. Three perfectly good comics clues left to die. Enough with running ou...

I don't understand why Jeffrey would be afraid of AMERICAN COMPOSERS as it's very likely going to be some common name that has appeared in dozens of previous clues. Even thought the person is likely going to have been long dead, any J! contestant should be familiar with the composer. My precall lis...

Instaget FJ. My only fear was that it was one of those tiny Pacific islands like Tuvalu or Kiribati.

Virginia's run ended faster than I thought it would. Oh well.

I'm not sure how Ripken counts as a SS if ARod and Ernie Banks (who both have more career HRs) don't. " He holds the MLB record for home runs by a shortstop, 345; there was a reason his manager let him play every day " The clue could've been a bit clearer, but it was asking for most HRs hit while p...

Same here. Deleting my cookies for the site worked to let me play J!6, but any attempt to log in fails (and the recovery options tell me that I don't exist). Clue of the Day isn't there, and the Howdies are from last week.

I wonder if they’d have taken just the hand signal for Hook ‘em Horns. I definitely did it at home, and thought Josh might too. Cya in the TOC, Josh. If FJ had stopped at '2008 comedy', things would've been a bit dicey; I'm pretty good at winners, but remembering all the nominees is hit-or-miss. Bu...

Re: TD 380 - Mother's Day - Q9-Q10 revealed

I was going to brute force the domino question, write them all down and count them up, but once I realized that each number appears 8 times, it was simple multiplication.

Great TD! Congrats to Magna and the podium.
