Re: LL79: For the LLamas

at some recent time in my life, I had an aha moment with jumps v. jumped, so I was on to that question like a shot

Well, I erred with ACT instead of Tasmania. Turns out ACT is *not* a state, but rather part of New South Wales.
It's not a state because the 'T' stands for territory. I'm pretty sure it's not considered part of NSW.
Right. It's enclaved within NSW, but a distinct territory

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Well, I erred with ACT instead of Tasmania. Turns out ACT is *not* a state, but rather part of New South Wales. Made no difference, however, as my opponent assigned 0 points and I missed 2 points on Lion Air, losing (again) 7(4)-8(5) I'm resigned to the inevitable fall back to B Taiga for LL80, barr...

Re: TD 405 - HARRISON FORD (REVEALED)

Thanks for the game and sorry to see the player count was low. Wow, there really is a crisis in TDs! I enjoyed this one, even when I ran out of assists and had to take a WAG on the last sports question. I did think the first question was exceptionally tough, but hey, it's just a game I like these t...

I struggled with these boards today but picked up some nice trash The FJ category reveal had me in a panic, as I could only precall a handful of 2-word capitals, but then I heaved a sigh of instaget relief when the clue was read Whenever synagogue is called for, I respond with temple.

No way I was missing Cosmo, but I don't see how you get it without having seen the show
Disagree. It was very much part of the pop culture lexicon in the show's heyday.
Yeah, I guess you're right. But I could still see this being off the radar for a lot of people

Nick did 8200+6000 on DD3 leaving 2200 on the table with 9 clues left. Nick trailed by 1400 going into the FJ! round. The other place where he could have had the lead for the FJ! round was clue 30. Nick negged $1600 taking himself out of the lead. That's okay he got $2000 to cover his trip and Stac...

Going to keep this open over the weekend. We need some players here.
Why?

If they wanted to play, they already would have.
Fair point

I submitted. Got stuck after using my drop and sheep, but I entered anyway

Re: TD 404 - Not Found (Q9-Q10 and FINAL RESULTS)

Nice theme! Thanks for hosting

The bonus was a nightmare but somehow I avoided last place.

Mata Hari was an epic bad guess. But at least the letters of her name are contained within Amelia Earhart

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Current events are my worst category, but I knew Sentinelese (and actually put "North Sentinelese") and was rewarded with a 3. It was such a big story, though I have been fascinated by North Sentinel island for awhile and might not have remembered the name of the tribe if not for the geography conn...

Had no clue that there are only 12 letters in the Hawaiian alphabet That fact was in the question. Lol yes. I meant before seeing this question, I didn’t know that factoid.

Hawaiian Alphabet: A, E, I, O, U, H, K, L, M, N, P, W Worked through the states perfectly. Maine, Ohio, Iowa, Oklahoma. $250,000 question streak lives on. 8-) I...

Would it have helped any of you if I had mentioned over in the current events thread that Olivia Colman, who plays Queen Anne in The Favourite, also starred in Broadchurch? Talked myself out of Boeing, the obvious answer, because apparently I’ve learned nothing in 5 or 6 seasons of Learned League. S...

I had no idea my aurals were killing TDs. I will stop crafting aurals. For this TD, I'm sorry Indiana hasn't produced hitnakers lately. I didn't have any David Lee Roth or Jermaine Jackson.

Re: The crisis in TDs

I need to be more disciplined about entering every TD, but too many sports questions and I don't bother

I've stopped hosting for now, only because it takes too much time to write and score
