Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (College), October 7, 2019

This felt much harder than last week's, but I only got one less right, 39 vs. 40. I had a couple of lucky WAGs, whereas last week's answers I felt I actually knew.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (College), October 1, 2019

After bombing this year's adult test, got a 40 on this. Sigh....hopefully that's a sign I'll be back to passing form next year.

Re: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For a moment, I conflated the two and came up with "fat boy," then realized my error. Wonder if the same process would've happened under the glare of the hot studio lights, or would I have left the blunder intact? I had the same issue, and knew it didn't sound right. I finally decided that "Fat Man...

Tricky one. Was tempted to say "La Marsellaise" but thought that would be too easy.
My reasoning as well. Switched to the correct response in the last seconds with little confidence. I'll take it.

Re: Fun with GSN's "Common Knowledge"

You're making me really glad I don't watch this show with any regularity. :x All of Lucario's things shared about the show ARE the reason to watch regularly as something like the examples happen each night. My partner already makes fun of me enough for yelling at the TV. I don't need to give him mo...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Best Ever Trivia Show" [Spoilers]

If there is one name there you have never heard of in the answer choices, it is pretty likely that it is the right answer. That's my reasoning for pretty much any sports question. :lol: It's uncanny how often I can get questions right on HQ Sports by simply clicking the most unfamiliar name among t...

Which of these is the chemical symbol for common table salt?

A. NaCl B. SoCl C. BrBa

The answers from the team

B B A :roll:
That same team said Lemon Merengue as the state pie of Florida. :?
I guess "Common Knowledge"...isn't. :shock:

Sandy: We go across The United States riding the biggest, fastest roller coasters that exist. Me: The world's fastest roller coaster is the Formula Rossa in Dubai. Sandy: I will take Muffy because she beat The Beast on "The Chase". Me: So did Raj. This is why I DVR and FF through the inane chit chat.

Re: Fun with GSN's "America Says"

So apparently, a team is allowed to be on the show more than once as long as they have a different name? There was a team of four guys called "The Princess Leias" and then they came back later in a different episode as "The Golden Girls". Just change your name, no pesky ties to trip you up. :lol:

What Hbomb said. I had a bad feeling when I saw the thread title and your post confirmed it. Good luck to you fighting this!
Same. The thread title gave me a sinking feeling. Not what you want to see, even if you don't know the person. I wish you all the best!

Re: Monday, July 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll be interested to see how this FJ polls because I, too, thought it was a gimme until seeing several people here who whiffed on it. Even if you don't know Shirley Jackson has an award named after her (I certainly didn't), the rest of the clue seemed very much in the WECIB category. And I could s...

i guess the contestants never watched ncis seasons 4 and 5...i learned grenouille meant frog because of the arms dealer that had the nick name of "le grenouille (the frog)", so for that dish was easy to get to frog legs
That's exactly how I got it! :lol:

Nope. They're from London, England. Try again.

I know they pinned it to 'latest discovered major type' but that blood question felt neggy. 'O' is the universal donor, so wouldn't that be (if having to generally pick between the four) the preferred type?
O is the universal donor for blood. AB is the universal plasma type.

Ended up with Antarctica, counted the letters wrong, concentrated on the dry land vs. non-dry land (ice, iow) part of the clue and thought they were being clever with the phrasing. Oops. Even if I had managed to get clear of thinking I'd deciphered the clue, I would not have come up with Polynesia....

I will also admit, for the sake of soliciting any similar admissions, that until today it was my supposition that between "jury-rigged" and "jerry-rigged", the former, and not the latter, was the incorrectly used neologism, an errant combination of "jerry-rigged" and the phrase "jury tampering".
