Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Question 1: From April 1983 to July 1985, a tennis duo—who won 20 career doubles Grand Slam titles together—went on a record-setting streak of 109 matches without a defeat. Name either of these women, both members of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Thought Process: Cool. I know Navritalova w...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

World history is one of my weakest categories, so I was really pleased to get 3 points for my educated guess of Kampuchea. I remembered that there was an album released of the Concert for Kampuchea, and back in the day I looked it up on a map because I had never heard of it before. All I could come...

WRONG ANSWER = 11
MattKnowles (Beijing - not a Winter Olympic host)
It may be implied that you were looking for a Winter Olympics host, but nothing in the question explicitly requires it.
I agree. My list had all the summer olympics host cities but I went with Sochi

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Well, I backed into a correct answer on PIANOS - I couldn't come up with any category of product that made sense, figured it's not food because we already have that NEUFCHATEL question. Thought, hmmm, maybe it's a musical instrument - what's the missing manufacturer in this list? Of course, I starte...

1. I thought Northern Exposure would SHEEP
2. I cry foul on this one :twisted: (I was going to submit 'backstroking' but assumed you'd mark it wrong)

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

After ZERO correct answers on Friday, I redeemed myself with 4 right on Monday but lost anyway to a 9(6)

Reliably, I missed the music and games questions :|

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I was convinced when I first read the Webster question that "second-most (but definitely not first-most)" was a tease out pointing to The New England Primer but was unable to recall that book's author. I then regrouped and put together that grammar and spelling with "pioneering American author and ...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Quick recap. First guess was Webster but the whole "secondmost but not firstmost" clue got me thinking oh, he means Strunk and White, so it has to be White, right? wrong Same thought process for me, except I realized White would have at least two more famous works (Elements of Style and Charlotte's...

Big fat ZERO on MD7. I think that's a first in 5 seasons of LL. I was just celebrating a streak of lucky guesses, so I guess I was asking for a smackdown. Quick recap.

Re: Think Different best practices

For me it’s easier just to paste the links in order and adjust the size / spacing until it looks good. Does that make sense? Or you size all images into squares on your computer- say 2x2- then create a new image in preview or photoshop or something - size 6x6 and then copy paste those images into th...
