Re: Friday, June 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I said Pentecost. It's one of those that probably wouldn't be an embarrassing guess even with there not being a Pentecost Island. I said Pentecost also and I was confident that would be the correct answer. In fact a Pentecost Island does exist, but it's located in the South Pacific instead of Afric...

Re: HQ Trivia

Lauren from that viral video has done all right since her win on HQ. Earlier this year she was on Ellen (no last name required) and won $5,000 + an extra $11.30 matching her HQ win. Yesterday she was on the show again and got the honor of being the guest DJ with tWitch away. She's done all right wi...

Re: Friday, June 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Tonight I realized that the Chicago song's title can be unpacked as "twenty-five or twenty-six to four" (3:35 or 3:34) and not "twenty-five to four or six to four" (3:35 or 3:54), which is how I'd always understood it, but which doesn't make nearly as much sense. You learn the weirdest things watch...

Irony time: today instead of work my company had a “fun day” social event (which I term “Mandatory Fun”) here. (I most likely would have got it even if that name wasn’t in my mind today)

Re: Tuesday, May 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The u is definitely voiced, but I'm sure many Americans don't pronounce it that way. I would accept "Vitton" because there's precedent in English for consonant-u-i leaving a silent u. (Although I think that only works with g-u-i , come to think of it...Both guise and guitar !) I wonder if they'd ru...

It's only Tuesday so I'll see how the week goes before promising to poll something that will go over 85%. It's a top box clue as the movie is that well known whether someone has seen it or not. The cast beyond John Candy has other people of varying degrees of fame, but it's not important for the cl...

I hate these types of FJs where you're supposed to get to the correct answer based on some quote that gives someone's opinion or analysis of something. Me too. If I'd known Robert Frost and Whitman weren't contemporaries, I would have grudgingly guessed the correct answer, but I didn't, and I didn'...

I couldn't pull "Poe" at the time--I was thinking Lovecraft, who was in the wrong century.
Good, I'm not the only one.

In fact, I had Poe, and thought Lovecraft was a better guess. :(
