Re: Thursday, October 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It is only relatively recently that I learned the connection between Tinkerbell and "tinkers" (like 10 years ago, but still, well into adulthood), and I can see someone not knowing it. Tough loss for Jessica.

Very much agree with you on the 5 Day thing.

Hey theFJguy, I think you dropped this: (4x = $87,202).

Also, I think you may have switched the last two letters of Julie's incomplete response around. If they were in that order, she's wrong even if she gets the rest of the response written.

Went from Underworld to Orpheus pretty quickly, but my brain caught "second half" and "6" before 30 seconds were up. Nice question.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

If the only other women's soccer player you can think of is Hope Solo, and you decide to just guess "Hope Solo" for every other question, make sure you guess "Hope Solo" for every other question, or else you won't gets the points for the question where the answer is actually "Hope Solo". FYI. :oops:

Re: Friday, October 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue was one where I sniffed out where to go without any great knowledge. “Supreme Allied Commander” seemed like WWI or WWII to me. Okay, 20th century. “Details of this” sounded like a plan... Exactly the same for me. Spent about 2 seconds thinking about what COSSAC might spell out, then de...

Well, my goal to actually watch every night for the new season lasted about a week, so I'm back to checking recaps. I did not get FJ, but if Alex was doing accents, I wonder if I'd have gotten the clue if I had actually seen it. Since "Englishman" is already in the clue, probably not. If he said " '...

I believe this is the "infamous" Arthur Chu tweet that was mentioned in the All Star Game thread.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

The fact that they have Leonard Cooper and Jennifer Giles in the tournament kind of indicates that Arthur Chu DID turn it down in my opinion. How would his turning it down open up two spaces?

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

When I miss things like Scott Morrison being the PM of Australia, it makes me feel like I'm not a serious trivia player. Like, it's 1 page back in the Current Events thread. Why am I not reviewing that thing every night before I open the day's questions? It makes me mad at myself. Would have turned ...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I spoke to someone a while ago (Robert Knecht Schmidt? can't remember for sure) about updating my March 1992 games, esp. now that I have DVDs for them all. But that was a year or more ago. Is there a way I can put together the data to get my other games into the archive? Just let me know. :) Well, ...
