Why did so many go to Ecclesiastes? What am I missing there?
For me it was simply "let's pick a book whose name I have no clue about the origin".
Solid!

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Millionaire will be in reruns 12/17 - 12/21 & 12/24 - 12/28 for sure and I would expect 12/30 - 1/4/19 as well. These three weeks (The B games) were shown in double run markets to open the season. For those areas that only get one game a day these shows will be new and first run. About time! My epi...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Hmm. If I had seen Tuesday's episode of Jeopardy before Thursday's match, I should have been able to come up with 'published posthumously'

Re: Tuesday, December 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ugh. That no one got the Hadji Murad clue was disappointing--my Ph.D. dissertation focuses on popular religiosity and religious dissent in late imperial Russia, and Tolstoy is a significant part of that. I don't know enough about his bio - I mean, anything - to have gone for that one. I blurted out...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

For the paisley question, Argyle and Tartan were two possible wrong answers. The “bush” hint steered me away from the geometric designs. Same here, but I put TARTAN anyway I came up with AURICLE for ear, which is a synonym for PINNA only in the ear sense. I'll file that one away for, er, scratch th...

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...

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

Re: Friday, December 7, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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

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...
