I had the definitions of cryonics and cryogenics flipped in my head. Cost me the tie.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

It took until my 337th career match day, but I finally drank my first beer. Roots was an educated guess and the wording of the Figaro clue threw me a little bit at first, but I kept telling myself that I was pretty sure that that was the opera that Count Almaviva was from. I was 100% sure on the ot...

I said Asunción, which appears to be incorrect.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Is it just a problem on my end, or have today's matches not been sent out yet? Not that I should care being that I'm dead last in my rundle. :oops: I don't know if the email for today's match didn't go out, but the link at learnedleague.com is live. At least, I assume it is, I haven't played yet, b...

What's the record for most fails on a Final Jeopardy clue?

Rouva? I think that means horse. Must be the bishop!

My gawd. :(

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I played the MD1 questions when I woke up in the morning, instead of right before bed. I started doing that last season, and I really think it worked for me. I still stay up entirely too late to see the previous day's result though. MD 1 was the first time I've ever come across an answer to a questi...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I was born in the U.P., my uncle was a professor at Michigan Tech, and my grandparents used to live in Sault Ste. Marie, where Lake Superior State is located. So, yes, I got that question correct but still knew it was the obvious 3 point defense pick. I put "chlorine" as in the generic name for the...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Gotta have a vanity post every once in a while.

The newest member of the animated rock band Gorillaz is Ace, a member of the Gangreen Gang as seen on The Powerpuff Girls. He takes over bassist duties while Mac serves time in jail.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

John Goss or John Gose? J! displays the player name, so he's John Gose. Pyramid and Sale only have the name said with no visual aid for spelling. To my ears and many others over the years the name sounded like Goss. That made game show collectors on trading sites and video uploaders on YT use Goss....

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I just noticed I'll be playing KlothA on MD19 for the title of Sioux Falls Champion, since the other Sioux Fallsian in LL is taking LL77 off.

Also, LL77 has rotational symmetry.

Rubicon.jpg At this point I just have to assume my PM about not ronin-ing anymore must have been misplaced. Given how happy I am that the site is back up, I'll be alright. Rubicon will soldier on without me for another season. And now to see who I'll be dueling with in A Commonwealth, and to repopu...

The players did not know the book for “Ask, and it shall be given you” while on that one I could have given chapter and verse if needed. I blew the category missing DD1 although I was only one book off compared to Steve who did not pick 1 out of a possible 66. Was there more to this one, since the ...
