Can someone please sticky this thread? Thanks.
Evidently not.

I also see some people answered "Flying Jenny" - let me put in a plea for that too. I've seen that nickname used as well. Here's an example.
The Flying Jenny is the right-side-up one. The only real answers that fit the question are 'inverted Jenny' and 'Jenny invert'.

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

It may be just as well anyway since I'm in the jury duty pool for September. You're in a jury pool for an entire month? Our jury duty terms are for four months. I was summoned for the first time for May 1-August 31. My experience so far is that they give you a reporting date a week or two in the fu...

In my county, apparently you're liable to be summoned at any point in a given month.
Yikes. I'm guessing it isn't a large population there.

Re: Reretaken Down

I was gone for a while, so I never got a chance to comment on the 25-4 game ... Don't overlook that the Mets outscored the Nationals 3-0 in the 9th inning. The trend was most definitely positive! Let's bring the negative back: the Mets currently have 45 wins. The Red Sox currently have 45 wins abov...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

But, is this cheating? I ended up leaving it blank but I feel like I should've been able to answer it without it being considered cheating. It would've been my second beer ever so that kind of hurt, but I did win my match. Nice that Thorsten confirmed my situation would not be considered cheating. ...

I feel for you Mets fans, but I'm a Tigers fan, and we have traded away or lost so many good players, especially pitchers.
Oh yeah. In the last few years your traded off Price, Porcello, Verlander, and Scherzer, who are currently a combined 51-21.

Re: Reretaken Down

Here's another fun fact. deGrom has a WAR (wins above replacement) of 6.7, tied for the highest in baseball among pitchers, yet has only 5 wins. How is that even possible? (Yes, I know it's all based on some complicated formula, so it's frequently counter-intuitive.) I was going to mention that, to...

Re: Reretaken Down

Just to bump this off of (almost ) page 3, I thought I'd lament about how horrible my Mets are this year. Jacob deGrom is probably 1B to Max Scherzer's 1A for the best pitcher in the NL right now. In last night's game against ATL, the Braves moved to 5-0 this year against the Mets when de Grom start...

No, ATB simply means you have never been on the show.

Exactly. If I go straight to the top of the Empire State Building, I cannot stop on 8 floors in between.

To top it off, I was actually thinking of "comme si, comme sa" and somewhat know the Spanish conjugations of the verb ser.
I think you mean comme ci, comme ca (with that little cedilla thing).

Have we ever had a FJ question poll at 100%?
Not to my knowledge.

That clue was just asking for trouble. "Sound familiar" does not go with deja vu. It goes with deja entendu. The writers should have used "Look familiar".
