MD24 Q2. WORLD HIST - What is the name given to the rebellion in southern China that lasted from 1850 to 1864 and aimed to overthrow the Qing dynasty and usher in a "Heavenly Kingdom of Great Peace"? Well, I knew it wasn't the Boxer Rebellion but what else could it be? I didn't want to leave it blan...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Yesterday was my first 0(0) since LL82. I thought of Judas Priest for the band and knew that it was a group that Beavis and Butt-Head liked, but I seemed to remember that there was a question on Judas Priest not too long ago and guessed Iron Maiden. Its my 12th season in LL, and for whatever reason...

I'm really bad with dates (the historical ones). I'm working on it, but I would have stayed clam on that entire 70s category. Nixon's resignation I should know, but I blurted out 1976 3/5 on Broadway Musicals :oops: The Little Mermaid! ugh. Poor showing for a wheelhouse category, but TBH, I'm not bi...

Theatre MD6 Q6 While tragedies were not uncommon during the Restoration period of English theater (1660-1700 AD), the period is best known for what witty three-word theater style that satirized the affectations of people and often their entire social classes? I struggled with this one. I get what th...

I've introduced LL to my sibs and got 3 rookies spawning on the black sheep branch of the morbeedo tree :). Three of us went to a 2-room country schoolhouse and we are going to show up our younger sister who was the first family member to go to kindergarten :lol:.
I love this!

A PSA in case someone else has forgotten they registered for the Psychology ML. Log in and play today. I don't think I got a reminder, but if I did, I lost it in the haze. I sure don't remember signing up for it :lol:.

I can't join in on the El Salvador discussion because I have an idiot friend who keeps spoiling Jeopardy! for me via text when I've asked him MULTIPLE TIMES never to do that again. I need to make my threats less idle. Quemars really thought about that late-game DD wager and then bet... to tie?? Make...

I was spoiled for this game, in a way. “Wow. Not bad. 89000.”

I thought zomg, Alex is gonna gush over the second coming of James Holzhauer!

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

This gives me time to get through the backlog on my DVR. I just watched the Halloween 2018 episode. I think I dressed up as a clown that year. Hard to know what’s real anymore at this point in quarantine.

A $600 daily double bet is a sign of somebody who isn't there to play. Caribbean religion + ISM + Hailie Selassie. Done. I expected a low wager but not that low. And she did it twice! Really, you can afford to go TDD on the second clue of the second round in the $800 box! But hey, she got it wrong ...

Re: Monday, April 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did anyone feel like Lauren didn't get enough time for the defibrillator DD? It seemed really fast. It also looked like she was stuck and couldn't think of anything so it probably didn't matter. My guess is the editors cut the dead air short in post to save a few seconds for the long dialogue at th...

"Strange things happen under the lights", so I'm going to assume that Lauren just froze on that defibrillator DD. Back-to-back Daily Doubles, 1R and 1W, but even with 2R she falls short of the lead with 1 clue remaining. What else is there to say... sigh Messed up with Zlot for Zloty, Xhosa for Ban...
