Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Hi all! I know I shouldn’t have waited until the last minute but I’m going on a cruise tomorrow & I was hoping to play my matches tonight because I don’t think I’ll have good(or any!) WiFi on the ship. Do I just email TI or is there a different way to get the quizzes early? I did this about 9 months...

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

On my recent trip to London, I took in “Quiz” in mid-May. It’s about the brit version of WWTBAM & a scandal involving an unlikely winner on the show. There’s a withering portrayal of Chris Tarrant & a bit of audience voting. I recommend it!

I was also traveling (Ireland & England) so I just caught this episode last night. Larry was talking about a semi-literate soccer star during his interview. Any guesses?

Re: Friday, April 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alex’s comeback of, “Well, you should still know it!” was kind of funny. I’m not Buddhist or Hindu but I usually get the clues about them on J. I didn’t see “legendary” as literal so I thought of Isabella.

Re: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

On another board, one childish/childless poster scolded Jen’s parents for not taking her out of the restaurant 30-something years ago. Can’t make this stuff up. I’m a big RS fan (I’m going to 4 shows on their upcoming European tour!) and I LOVED Jen’s story! It was hard to watch the one guy flail a...

Re: Thursday, April 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was rooting for Jen to repeat since she’s a fellow penguin lover but that one DD was bad. I was surprised only one person got the Babe. That was easier than yesterday’s simple FJ.

I saw Aconcagua last year but I’ve never heard of Ohio’s before now. The mountains in the northern Andes are twice as big generally as those in the south.

His mistake was saying “nebula” instead of “nebulae.” Weren’t both of his names plural? LOL

Re: FJs for the 4/2/18 week

8/8 second week in a row! I didn’t know the volcanoes in Lake Nicaragua but I know The Rolling Stones played a benefit concert in 1973 or so after an eruption ruined Managua. I think I’ll do well this coming week unless they ask about really recent music or some awful CW tv show.

Re: Friday, April 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Andrews reminded me of the guy who got booted from Survivor last night. At least he ended up playing FJ. Surprising that he was the sole solve on Lake Nicaragua. Lots of really easy clues this game so it was disappointing to watch.

Re: Thursday, April 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Maybe not if it’s not as disastrous as A Wrinkle In Time. Easy FJ again. Dahomey was a major African empire and as noted above, Benin was initially called Dahomey upon independence. I was glad to see big bets on FJ.

Aylesbury, England is now home to "Earthly Messenger", a statue of David Bowie in his various personas. Cool design.

Is DNCE still a group? I played that song & it’s awful. Superstar is a great song. It was written by Leon Russell.

Re: Thursday, March 29, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm glad to see Emily win, but wish she had been bolder at the last DD to take the lead outright. Some excellent CLAMs by the co-leaders on the last clues - they were tough clues and Alex did the right thing by swinging a WAG to get back in the chase. On FJ, I wandered mentally to the IRS, and then...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I remembered a song called Cantaloop from the early 90’s or so & I knew it was based on a jazz song so I took a chance. I actually strongly considered hamstrings for the muscle question but then I switched to something else. I guess tonight is the last test?

Ugh, hammer got apartheid & I didn’t!!!! I did get FJ rather quickly although I didn’t realize it had been made into a musical. I can’t believe Joey bet zero but I should also know better by now. The winner’s voice sounds like Martha on Baskets.

Their #1’s in the 60’s were the 2 mentioned earlier plus Paint It Black, Ruby Tuesday & Honky Tonk Women. They had 3 more chart toppers in the 70’s. I went with beatles because WECIB? I was ro...
