Re: Friday, September 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Isn't every country in Europe and Asia Eurasian? I know I wasn't certainly thinking that. Exactly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasia However, for J purposes it's useful to know that the only uses by the writers of "Eurasian" in the archive, as shown upthread, have been as a Pavlov for Turkey.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

While on paper Team Brad looks formidable, I think most people are seriously underrating Team Colby.

Anyone else disappointed the MCWA for Q5 was "nebula" rather than "nebulae?"
I'm guessing that Thorsten combined the two. My incorrect response was nebulae. But it's hard to know for sure; you could say the MCWA for this one is a little . . . nebulous. :D

For team names I would prefer it be Team Colby, Team Ken etc. after the captains and no punny pub trivia types.

To go really retro: The Colbys.
That team could be a real dynasty.

I only knew Turandot because after Aretha Franklin died, I saw a video of her singing Nessun Dorma, so out of curiosity I looked up what opera it was from.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Proof that defense involves luck: my private rundle opponent was 69 out of 69 on math questions going into yesterday. So I assigned him a 1 on the segment question. He got it wrong. I lost 8(5) - 6(5), and now he's 69 out of 70 for his career on math questions. :)

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

BTW, am I the only one who got the R3 D5 12-pointer in large part because S22 J! contestant Alaric Smith used to post on the old J! board under a handle that was something like "The last visigoth" (which helped burn the "Alaric - Visigoth" association into my brain)?

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Singer is major negbait for the 6-pointer in "Tributes". He didn't die until 1875. Howe died in 1867. But since the correct answer hinges on people knowing those dates, this is much too hard for a 6-point question. I think you ought to consider a replacement question. (Although, since I got it righ...
