Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Heck with it...it almost feels like it keeps happening because of my volcano tags earlier and doesn't want to be left out Kilauea has been bubbling regularly on the big island of Hawaii. It might even classically erupt like a stratovolcano rather than the shield volcano it is (though not as disaste...

Re: Reretaken Down

For fans of National Anthems: This was an article in The San Francisco Chronicle : Thanks for this, Mark! (You do know how to get my attention!). I will say he’s not the first I heard of that has done this, I came across this video almost ten years ago (and this more recent follow up article while ...

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. :(

Disneyland is on my to-go list for my SoCal visit upon The Call. (Or more precisely, on my kids’ list, I’ve never been anxious to go and the more I hear about it (namely the crowds and prices) the less interest I personally have.)

I have worked as a dealer in a Washington state cardroom for almost ten years. As far as I'm concerned, a croupier is anyone who is in charge of maintaining a gaming table, be it cards, roulette, or dice. I myself have only ever dealt cards. That doesn't match my own experiences. In poker and black...

Another one who thought the FJ was horribly written. I thought they wanted two different designations.

One place claiming to be the equator doesn’t make sense to me. I said the source of the Nile. I have a friend who was a missionary in Uganda. She posted a picture of her on Facebook with her and an Ugandan gentleman standing on the equator. There was this structure of a circle with a line through t...
