Re: Monday, July 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

John Keats owes Rebecca $27,400: Much have I travell'd in the realms of gold, And many goodly states and kingdoms seen; Round many western islands have I been Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold. Oft of one wide expanse had I been told That deep-brow'd Homer ruled as his demesne; Yet did I never br...

Re: Pavlovs parsed from the archived questions

Ok, tech question with a simple answer, but I rarely use any apps. I downloaded the zip file and the trivia flashcards app, but can't figure out how to import the files into the app. I extracted them all. Now what? They're just sitting in my phone's files. If someone who can help needs more info (p...

Does anyone have access to the original zip file for these Pavlovs? I'd be curious to learn more about the frequency of various terms. Thanks!
I think OP's signature has a working URL? Is that what you're looking for?

I was hoping someone would post them. Thanks for the update. :)

Thanks for the Quiz Bowl tips! Should be fun, even if I bomb terribly What's the deal with the Millionaire auditions? Do you just show up or do you need to sign up in advance? If Millionaire holds auditions at TCONA, you can just show up. If not, you can go over to the studio next to Bally's and au...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

IHOP is flipping the P and changing its name to IHOb with the announcement of the new name coming on June 11th. I wonder if they just got tired of all the jokes about the one-legged waitress named Eileen. Turned out to be some New Coke gimmick anyway and it's back to IHOP. :roll: Those burgers were...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Thanks to his new album Scorpion, Drake has 7 of the songs in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100, including the number one "Nice for What". This beats the Beatles 1964 record of 5 of the top 10, but their 5 held positions 1-5, a feat which has not been repeated since.

More here.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I had my best season placement wise, finishing 7th in my A Rundle. And after 5 years of my TCA best total being stalled at 104, I've had my second consecutive bettering of that number. I've finally sorted out getting dropped from the Ronin roster, so I will be heading home to Rubicon for LL78. I was...

But seriously, only 34% knew The Leatherstocking Tales? Both my opponent and I got this right and we each gave each other zero points. My opponent yesterday probably didn't think that I am regularly trying to be a Jeopardy contestant. I was assigned and received three points on the art question. No...

I would have won 7(5)-4(4), but I had a weird Bible/movie mashup moment and typed Nazarone. Thankfully, we tied 4(4)-4(4). Never heard of that film!

Midseason results are in.

Surprised how obscure Rockefeller ended up, but I still did a good job of not picking sheep bonuses for a change.
I moneyed 2 wrong guesses. I'm betting this turns out to be my worst MSC ever.

Mark,
Any chance you will be adding some more games from Seasons 8-12? It seems odd Seasons 3-6 have more games in the archive then the ones I mentioned. It would be nice to see more from those seasons entered.
You're asking the wrong guy, hint hint. ;)

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...

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.

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