Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'll call dibs on the 5/23 episode and work on a summary to post in a bit. Sg: I'm thinking I see the game before you so I want to save you working on a similar thing. Thank you for the post yesterday as watching it once was more than enough and revisiting it for a post here would not have been fun...

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Margaret Schugt faced a $5,000 question: A "davenport" and a "chesterfield" are two kinds of what type of furniture? A. Chair B. Couch C. Lamp D. Ottoman She said that her initial thought wasn't even in the choices. She'd already used ATA, so she called her +1 from the audience. He didn't really kno...

Did you notice the contestant said plumbum with an unsilent B? Plum+ bum Yeah, that's how it's pronounced. On a related note, it was funny Alex corrected Josh's "antimony" pronunciation despite Josh using the common pronunciation--at least in the U.S. I've always used the standard Tom Lehrer pronun...

I was quite doubtful of Delmarva, but I couldn't come up with anything better.

Re: HQ Trivia

A win on The Q this evening finally put me over $25 and into cash-out range; my Cash Show earnings are just under $100 and my HQ earnings just under $900, so that win puts me over the $1k mark for the three combined. (I mean, technically the numbers in the three apps had already totaled above it, bu...

Re: HQ Trivia

I got two wrong on HQ today, missing the island (extra life spent) and the baseball team (knockout). My dad knew the baseball question right away. I missed last night's game - what was the baseball question? I don't have the exact wording on me, but it asked which franchise did NOT start out as the...

:( :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( Louisville was the only Southern city that was possibly named for a king that I could think of in the thirty seconds. If I had framed the clue in my mind as "name an important Civil War city," I might have been able to pull Charleston. I was flummo...

2010 ToC: 4 single gets and a TS in the QFs; a TS, single get, and triple get in the SFs; a TS and a double get in the finals. Likewise in this tournament (although the QF and SF get patterns didn't occur in the same order). One difference is that I did twice as well (6/10) in this tournament. It w...

Claire: Larry has you locked out. Bet $4,501 to cover Steve.
Steve: You can take second place if Claire misses FJ, but you have to wager $0 and no more.

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Monya is an O'Brien's Pub Quiz regular. I was worried she'd be wrong because I missed a DD on Jeopardy by saying the South China Sea, and I thought I recalled the clue mentioning Korea, so my guess was that the correct response, the Yellow Sea, is what China and Korea share. (After finishing that se...

Am I the only one who noticed that the $400 question in Round 2 for "21st Century Best Sellers" was wrong? The Da Vinci Code came BEFORE the two books "Angels & Demons" and "The Lost Symbol". There was no book between those two. The order is The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, The Lost Symbol, Infe...

Re: Thursday, May 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought, "Well, if you add a p to 'lumbar' it begins with 'plumb,' but lumbar is just an adjective," then went elsewhere and got lost in the mists. But I got back to "lumbar" and remembered lumbago, and "plumbago" sounded vaguely familiar to me. (My dad got to it at about the same time I did.)

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

No guess on FJ! Even when he spotted the other 5, I had no idea that Arabic was the missing one. And I wouldn't remotely consider Arabic "cursive". And what do you think "cursive" means? The etymology of the word seems to come from a Latin word for "running". What does that have to do with Arabic? ...

Re: FJs for the 5/7/18 week

Interesting that so few people got Gold Rush . Not that I think people are missing much when it comes to skipping the silent era, but the version of Gold Rush with narration, available on Youtube among other places, is quite amusing. I only got it because of "in the Yukon" at the beginning; I didn'...
