If my Twitter sense is tingling, there was a reason the last question is what it was. It probably also means I sheeped big-time.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Much to my surprise, I notched 4 of my 7 wins in the last 4 MDs, moving up from 26th to 19th place in A Taiga, with no chance of relegation! Would be nice to finish in the teens after a brutal start to the season, but I'm just happy to survive another rout

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

The Hesse question (that I muffed) last week got me thinking about his bud Thomas Mann. Although I've read The Magic Mountain and Faustus, I have only heard about one novella he wrote, Death in Venice. Having no clue about the others (My Antonia and O, Pioneers were so unlikely to be it), I went wi...

Re: TD 394 - MINI-TD #2 - Q5 RESULTS

Just out of curiosity, would "Child" have been considered for the Harry Potter question, considering the script has also been released in book form? Or would its format have not been considered a novel for the purposes of this quiz? I said novel to distinguish from play, but if there’s also a prose...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ellen and Nick on today's episode were on my tape date. I hope they do well. Ellen did something I've never seen a Millionaire contestant do before. She got to the $20,000 question with two lifelines. It asked was what the bird Merops apiaster ate, as indicated in its name. (I don't remember the ch...

“Azkaban” being a singleton is a crowning achievement in double-bluffing.
Yup, and that player was eliminated, so no advantage there
Hey! I can hear you, you know.
Haha, a well earned singleton. Sorry you misunderstood the Internet question

Re: TD 394 - MINI-TD #2 - Q5 RESULTS

I guess i never noticed that if you are eliminated from the game, your responses still count for other people's points on future questions. I assumed that after elimination it was like the player no longer existed. Too lazy to see whether that would have helped/hurt me. :-) I think it makes sense t...

The guy seemed to know his history but went with George H.W. Bush and Saddam Hussein. I figured Carter / Castro had to be right without really knowing. He left with $5K and we never met his Plus One

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Is Learned pronounced with 1 or 2 syllables? I was listening to the Trivial Warfare podcast and all the guests were saying Learn-Ed League

Also, will my One-Day Special proposal be accepted?

I'd like to celebrate my 4th 9(6) in 7 seasons, and it couldn't have come at a better time! Defenestration took a while, but finally got there after reading the question a few times (tough way to go...)

In my online research, and in a game I saw in the studio, I've seen A or D come up in numerical answers a few times. If I hadn't, I wouldn't have used my 50-50 on my last question even though I suspected it was B or C. Ahhh, thanks for the research. We’ll have an opportunity to revisit this soon en...
