I managed a rare 6(3)-6(5) tie, but could have won if I'd known the Shakespeare quote like seemingly everyone else did (I put Juliet, beau). Also missed "7th Heaven" and perro.

My first Dolly. I guess my Language score is higher than I realized, so I was assigned 0 for the cane/perro question. Unfortunately I didn't know it.
I TOLD YOU IT WAS PERRO! :lol:

I'm feeling cautious about being in first place. I'd much like a three peat but fear a comeuppance. I worry that somewhere out there is a bottle of cream of tartar with my name on it.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

My streak of terrible luck has reversed, but I'm still reeling from missing 3 points on hurling with "curling", which I know is an ice thing but somehow I convinced myself the name was the same. 5 MDs to go, not sure I'll be able to extricate myself from the relegation zone

Thymus was a terrible miss for me. Just terrible. I started with T-cell, then realized he wanted the organ and switched to thalmus (sic) without even giving it a second thought.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Midseason results are out. I accomplished my goal: moneyed the right 5 of 7 that I knew I got right. (Moneying Polish would have resulted in a higher score, but I had about 2% confidence on that one to begin with.) Nice. I $d the film festival question and missed with Rome Went Dutch for Polish.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

It’s crazy that some kid won more money in the first episode of Card Sharks than anyone in Millionaire’s entire 17th season What was crazier was the second part of the episode and the bonus round. The contestant had $23K and an 8, so he bet $4k on lower. An ace came up so dropped to $19K. With that...
