It was a super skunk for me with ALL AROUND YOUTUBE as I was 0/6 including the J!6 clue.
Didn't see the J!6, but I'm sure I would join you in the 0-fer (and 1-for-Children's Books, so it wasn't the best of J! rounds for me).

Thankfully, my Latin is good enough to get the correct 3 words.

Re: Tuesday, April 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

In spite of my regular use of this trivia, I Pavlov'd to Gold because of it's role in switch contacts. It is almost as good as Silver and it never corrodes in spite of jillions of sparks and lightning. Ah. Thank you. That's why I chose gold as well, even though my first thought had been silver. Aft...

All 5 of my regular game auditions have been in Florida. My two College auditions were in Memphis and Raleigh-Durham, but those were pre-internet test days.

Either "Head" or "Old" is correct.

I can happily say that my mom never tried foisting a 'snack' based on celery onto me during my childhood. :)
Celery makes a wonderful peanut butter delivery system.
So does my finger.

Finished 11th (97%) in the BSG 1DS. I think that's my 2nd best -ever finish. Could have finished 5th if I had monied "Peace" instead of "Lucifer".

I misunderstood the clue to mean only one State was named for a woman and Virginia was the first to come to mind so I didn’t spend any time trying to think of another state. Oh, well.
Yeah, I spent a few seconds trying to make sure of what they were looking for and that cost me.

That same category also had the stumper for number of bits in the “Street Figher II” console and that is my kind of trash and I understand why the young folks in 2018 were only guessing on that one.
At least 8-bit is a valid guess.

Boy, that was a little painful. None of them knew beans about baseball but they pretty much went straight down the category? It's a championship quarterfinal. All clues will be revealed. May as well get the awkward ones over with. Not necessarily sound strategically, but as a viewer, I approved. Ha...

Again, most of NY involves going west, even if you do go north first.
This one's simple: if it isn't NYC or Long Island, it's upstate. So, basically 97% of New York is considered upstate.

I think if you just substitute round number for even number this could’ve been solved 12 posts sooner. However I’m not sure logic was 100% infallible. I have no specific knowledge of the westworld universe but I see no reason to assume they couldn’t charge 57,000 instead of 40,000. I’m not sure I’v...

It didn't ask for a city, it asked what was in San Diego's Balboa Park.
But is it that widely known outside California that that's where San Diego Zoo is?
Yes

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

It came up twice last season though not first box. You either learn to match Balboa Park to SD or you don't. If the 4/6 clue had been second or third box no crime while not ridiculous for top clue either. No matter what, as usual, "very obscure" is 100% false. Okay, I still think it was overly Cali...
