I wonder if Alex passed the test.
I think a staged photo of him copying off his neighbor on the written test would be hilarious.

Re: Wheel Audition Hints?

Does it help to wear something that’d make you stand out in a crowd? I do a little cosplay and it’d make me stand out if nothing else. I've always assumed you have to be REALLY careful with this approach. A loud jacket or wacky hair might be just enough, where a full-on costume would probably get y...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Which cities haven't yet had auditions (from the latest online test)? Charlotte Raleigh was never visited from the last round of testing. I think they may have skipped San Diego too. I don't remember seeing anything about Los Angeles this time around. Of course it's relatively easy for them to sche...

Magna (600 for Arts and Recreation)
Argh. I read that as the useful arts, which is what the 600s used to be called. I knew that cookbooks, woodworking, and crafts are in the 600s.

Looks like I am headed for last place in a hurry!

Will you be PM'ing a copy of our answers to us?
The reason I ask is that this would help us find any important typos, like putting down the wrong letter for our answer.

Whoddathunk? While I like the consistory I'm showing in getting 2 for every question so far, I am shocked that someone else (Ironhorse) has heard of Newton, KS! South Central Kansas is representing! I grew up in Kansas myself, though in suburban KC. I'm sure you don't resemble this fellow, but I co...

Re: TD 355 - Something - Q4 RESULTS

I'm always amused at how many times the response I look at and say "Well everybody knows that one so surely I shouldn't pick it" ends up being someone else's singleton or isn't even used at all, because everybody second-guessed it the same way. It's what makes the strategy of TD so maddening to nai...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 6 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Apparently, Romeo and Juliet is the correct response. The opera is taking up space on my DVR, though I haven't got around to watching it yet. But thanks to the recording, I was able to make an educated guess on the Gounod opera based on a Shakespearean play. You're in for a treat - the music is ver...
