Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Since when is "Moll Flanders" a full fifth of a 55-word title? It's not, but "The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders, &c." is. Did anyone do the math on that? I checked on word count and it didn't come out very close to a fifth. Maybe using letter count it does? The exact 4/5 figu...

I started a bit too far west to get back to Vermont in time.

The clue for Kalamata had a near-giveaway TOM with the "'olive' you should know" hint
Is Kalamata that well-known? I don't recall ever hearing of it before about 7:15 this evening.

I suspect that's because Buzzy was about to call out Austin's addition of the "s" as well.

Another iPad here.

I said semi-monthly for 11-letter every two weeks. Judges?
I would say no. Semi-monthly only requires it to be twice in one month, not that it happens every two weeks (military paydays, for example, are semi-monthly, but occur on the 15th and 30th).

I'd like to hope everyone remembered the sugar maple!
That was the only one I wasn't sure of yesterday, but the recency helped me to a rare 9(6). Sadly, my opponent scored the same.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Apparently nobody watched Lost or at least remembers it. I gave it a 0 to two people (including private rundle) with high TV scores and both missed. 17% get rate on one of the most iconic moments of the show. I watched every episode of Lost. I was a big fan. I discussed it endlessly. I had no idea ...

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

I'd say 30 for "magnet school". That'd still put it higher than Ziggy Marley. I'll take the over and not only that I'll raise you 25 and take over 55%. The clue was fine, it had a hint and it was in the right place for top box. Three champions did not know it or chose not to venture a guess. That's...

and 'missionary' for 'missions' was another nail in her coffin, she was correcting herself but AT had already ruled against. This reminds me...Austin was given a lot of time to correct "Blues" to "Blue Jackets" in the first round. Perhaps too much? I even thought I heard Alex say "no", but apparent...

Ouch! What a painful possessive.
Even more painful, as they gave "Victoria Cross" in the clue as a possible correct form.

I'm still a bit shaky when it comes to their relationships to each other.
For reference: Victoria was mother of Edward VII, who was the father of George V, who was the father of both Edward VIII and George VI (who was Liz II's dad).

Ouch! What a painful possessive. I'd have a lot more sympathy if not for the improvident wager. I'm pretty sure that historically $16,000 has pretty much always been enough to secure a wild card spot. --Bob I wonder how $16,000 stacks up in past TOCs. Because it does look like Justin over-estimated...
