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

Any reason I should know any of those movie quotes? Especially since none of them were actually funny? As I pointed out, Alex at least thought the Mean Girls ESPN quote was funny. So did I. I swear I've heard at least 400 billion other people make that exact same malapropism before Mean Girls even ...

Re: Toughest FJ! clues Season 32 (9/14/15 - 7/29/16)

I only got Cordon Bleu, Hesse, and Pandora right on first viewing; I semi-remembered PC (like, I came up with it as a response then suddenly recalled the FJ and knew I was right); I got Kierkegaard, Stromboli, and Leeward Islands from remembering the FJs; I didn't remember the Lewis Carroll and Lord...

Re: Friday, February 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wonder if Mark misread Eric's score as $20,200. If it was an actual mistake, I'm glad Amanda wagered properly so that it cost him only $1,000 and not the game. I immediately recognized the descriptions in FJ as referring to rubber. My dad went straight for Carver and couldn't see the light even as...

What's the ruling on Roman J. Israel, Esq.? A suffix doesn't render it unacceptable, does it?

Re: Wednesday, January 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got "The Handmaid's Tale" but I began writing with only about 5 seconds left in the music, not enough time to write it all down! I would have been ruled incorrect because the pen would have turned off before I completed it. If I had written "What is" while I was stumped I probably could have comp...

So how did everyone get filibuster? By paying attention to political news for the past decade. Yes, something that happened in 1917 was in the news last week.

Re: Wednesday, February 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Edward Lear first; I figured if his oeuvre could contain a Moppsikon Floppsikon Bear it could have "jellylorum" somewhere as well. Then I wondered if it could be Old Possum and agonized for the rest of the music, ultimately sticking with Lear. Remember, folks: your first instinct is usuall...

I don't know if he could handle the speed of the game, but I would like to see Rene Nunez on J! Yeah, I was quite impressed with Lupe and Rene. Their prior experience with trivia competitions showed and they made good decisions. It'll be interesting to see how much farther they get today with no mo...

I forfeited for the first time since I joined in 2011.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I would hope the Maduro question would play easier now, but given your average American, there's no guarantee of that. For me at least, that was a way easy stack with no difficulties whatsoever. I don't think I needed even one lifeline. Though I would have been tempted to answer, "I hate the blanki...

On Thursday I had JFK right away and didn't figure out W. until after the music ended, but I'm giving it to myself because I was dealing with the distraction of my dad and brother thinking aloud. Twelfth Night on Friday.

The Alps are in Italy too? I thought they were only in Switzerland. And just to stretch your (geographic) mind a little more, also in France, Austria, and Germany. [If I've missed any, please pile on.] Hence the phrase "Swiss Alps" (that specificity wouldn't be necessary if they were exclusively Sw...

I got JFK right away, and got confused about the number of letters like Alan did. It didn't help that my dad and brother were discussing things aloud, and I realized W. just after the music ended.
