Re: FJs for the 12/10/18 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( I can name all the books of the Old Testament. Psalms was easy enough that I didn't need to. But I did after I came up with it, just to make sure. On the sci-fi clue, I thought, "Oh God, I don't watch a lot of sci-fi, and now I have t...

Re: Friday, December 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I watched this online because Jackie's my friend and I felt it was far more likely than usual to be spoiled on the outcome on social media today. Plus I'll be out this evening. Six clues after LTaM, Noah's choice to jump to the top of the category (scores $5,000-$6,000-$13,200) was fatal (although i...

Any reason I should know what kind of lettuce is used in a Caesar salad?
The Caesars were Roman...
I thought they were Little.
I was going to say that only one was, but then I realized the pizza chain doesn't have an apostrophe in its name.

1 Samuel 18:27: "David took his men with him and went out and killed two hundred Philistines and brought back their foreskins. They counted out the full number to the king so that David might become the king's son-in-law. Then Saul gave him his daughter Michal in marriage. You'll never guess what h...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

For $10,000 today, a contestant had to name the disputed region between India and Pakistan. (The choices were Bhutan, Kashmir, Kathmandu, and Hindu Kush.) That seems way easier to me than what car model Oprah gave away.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I considered Cardi B and Ariana Grande, and went with the latter, which prevented a 9(6). But I still won in public (and my private opponent, RutterB, missed it too, and we tied at 6(5)).

Luckily the clue told you that they did by naming the place. Which still doesn't narrow things down any if you have no clue where exactly in Africa the country of Ethiopia is located. You're lucky I knew Addis Ababa = Ethiopia. Well, then, now you're not complaining about the clue casting a too-wid...

^The Teen Reunion Tournament in Nov. 1998 was structured to have twelve contestants play four semi-final games, but only the top three scorers of the week could advance to the final game on Friday (since Dana finished in fourth place, she did get $7,500 while all the losing contestants got $5,000)....

Synchronized swimming and speed skating were all I could think of. While your concern about synchro is in regard to what individual c...

I"m kinda with TPH on the dwarfs clue. If you've never seen the clock, is there any reason to pick one dwarf over any other? None that I'm aware of. Seems to me if you haven't seen the clock, it's just a random 1-in-7 guess. No logical reason it should be one and not any other. One is decidedly mor...
