Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Somehow I got credit for shurat for the Quran question. Not even sure how I got that close to begin with.

One of my favorite F1 pilots, Daniel Ricciardo, has the Honey Badger moniker. Took me about 15 seconds, but I dredged it up.

Re: Reretaken Down

Lets move this to the proper thread... At least tell me you don't consider RBIs and pitching wins useful? Wins are utterly useless (Jacob de Grom should be a unanimous Cy Young winner, record be damned) and RBIs only slightly less so. So close... https://deadspin.com/goddamnit-cy-young-voter-who-sn...

I thought I was getting better at clue interpretation lately. Should I just chalk this up as a misfire?

Re: Monday, November 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another outdated clue thanks to the recent A.G. change. Not really; the fact that there's now an (acting) 85th doesn't change the fact that he's the 84th. Acting AGs don't appear to count toward the number. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Attorney_General Acting anything doesn't count.

Seriously? Well, 30 of those years won't count as far as WAR is concerned, but yeah, if you've been paying any attention to the sport in the last 10 years or so, you should have heard of WAR. And OPS, for that matter. But then again, I'm a lapsed SABR member. I've always found it a completely usele...

Sorry to see Emily go, especially on an unforced error. I haven't seen the image she butchered, but unless there's a monocle, cigarette holder, or a wheelchair, I wouldn't expect younger folks to know Truman from Roosevelt by facial features. I don't think I could. Maybe, if it was the same as the ...

Why I continually confuse Rhine and Rhone is beyond me.
I just remember that the actual spelling is Rhône and as soon as I "see" the circumflex, I know it's French.

Cherry blossoms are not negbait for Japan. The emperor sits on the Chrysanthemum throne.
That.

Not quite an instaget, but close.

The Rhone, despite the near-spelling of the Rhine, never enters Germany.

Re: Monday, October 29, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've seen the title rendered as The Morte Darthur , so I don't think we can say that putting the wrong English article in front is wrong. Besides, I don't think J!'s unwritten rule about allowing initial articles to be dropped/added/replaced has any stipulation saying that added or replaced article...

Alternatively, it might have been "Lə morte..." with the 'L' dropped by the audio.
He didn't appear to be forming an 'L', but who knows.

Re: Monday, October 29, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I heard him say "Amour d'Arthur" or something similar. Something like that. It absolutely did not start with an "L". Should have been reversed. I would transcribe it as A Morte de Arthur . He pronounced the t in Morte. Unique and odd to change the French Le to the wrong English article, but that's ...
