Re: Friday, November 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I matched Seema. I've been having no luck on FJ lately. Good question, tho.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Had no idea on the sports Q yesterday, but golf was my first guess. So of course I spent a bunch of time trying to think what else it could be, settling on baseball because of the College World Series in Nebraska. Turned a win into a tie. Sigh.

Maybe Mersenne was the MCWA, but just didn't register 5%?
Probably very likely.
Through MD4 I had 0 MCWAs, and through MD5 I now have 1. Mersenne was my only wrong answer yesterday, so that must have been the case.

I guess if this is airing on ABC, they won't be bringing Young Sheldon back to read clues. Bummer.

I learned from tossing linseed to not discount the existence of a stupid answer. Also, unlike linseed, I couldn't talk any doubt into myself over heavy water. Exactly. He's human and makes mistakes.

"Only" a million bucks for the top prize? Seems chintzy.

Seriously though, 2 million would have bumped Ken or James to the top of the money list, or cemented Brad as the All Time. C'mon Consumer Cellular, pony up.

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

Archive programming suggestion: Set up a season like Super Jeopardy, and split each episode into two games for Archive purposes. That much is obvious, but a lot of little pieces of the Archive had to be specially programmed to accommodate Super Jeopardy! , and so now we're going to have a lot of co...

Seems to me like we can probably get by without any reprogramming, then.

Re: LL83: Learned League

The 4 players from South Dakota I track on the player tracker (including myself) all have 9 correct after 2 days. Also, if anyone knows any other players from SD, let me know. I miss being able to search for that.

Re: LL83: Learned League

I am curious how many people who got San Francisco knew the question was about the Federal Reserve and how many just guessed a city in the West. It would have been a better question if the missing city had been Richmond or Cleveland. The locations letter/number made me think of coins and bills and ...

1 more guess for Bernoulli. Thank for getting FJ and the results up quick.

Getting this right is a big plus for Francois. Shows he has deep knowledge.

Re: Tuesday, November 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I missed they were looking for 2 belts (read the recap, instead of waiting for game to air), but wouldn't have gotten Sun Belt anyway. Correctly guessed Rust over Bible. Not a fan of this clue. Feels arbitrary.

If you spotted me Marian Anderson I probably could have told you she was an African-American singer and civil rights figure (somehow) but I didn't know the specific story about the Lincoln Memorial until this FJ!
