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

Do you know how weird it is to have so many people join me in the NHOI camp?

I mean actual NHOI this time, not TPH NHOI.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Are they still asking the banal "Which celebrity used to work at Family Dollar?" type questions? I have no idea how they expect anyone to know that kind of stuff. There's no way to reason it out either if you don't know it outright. And that IMO is always one of the fascinating things about WWTBaM, ...

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

Ran the Anagrams category. Food category was weird. NHO "pommes frites" or "Asian chicken salad", and said enchirito for chimichanga. Any reason I should know what "pommes frites" means anyway? That's not even remotely close to a cognate, so it's entirely YEKIOYD. DJ! board looked weird with $1200 a...

Re: Thursday, February 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Loved the piano category. Swing and a miss on "German for 'love dream'." I left out the S on "liebestraum". The "milk of amnesia" was my only miss in "First Time Responses". "Putt for dough" in the top box was my only miss in "In Perpetuity". NHO that phrase, and couldn't filter through that mass of...

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When I saw how much of a preamble there was, I predicted that this would just be a half-game like the Watson tournaments were. It was interesting to see the behind the scenes stuff, though. Just like the Watson games, an occasional diversion like this is fine. The J! round pacing reminded me of thos...

Hammer would not be amused at the misdirection in PANCREAS... $800
Joke's on you. I ran the category. $800 didn't throw me at all, because "It contains notes, charts, tables & lists" obviously isn't going to be a pancreas or spleen.

Also ran the "Y" Me category.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I think the problem is that said gypsum mine is in Alabaster Township, which fools my brain into thinking that the material is called "alabaster" long enough to distract me from pulling up the actual word.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Is there a reason that I blank on gypsum literally every time it comes up? There is a gypsum mine about 10 miles south of where I live. I have to drive through it to get downstate. But every time it comes up, I'm like "Uhhhh... that stuff they mine just outside of town, what's it called?"

Any reason I should know those films at $200 are Italian? I guessed India for a country known for lots of award-winning films. Ran the Verbs and Store categories, along with "K" and Twosday in DJ! Yes, I got McPeople for $2,000. I live 10 miles from a gypsum mine and have to pass through it to get s...

I get NOTHING on Google for runcible being a spoon.

That only mentions the spoon in the Owl and the Pussycat. It doesn't mention the kind of spoon the clue was talking about. And an image search only gives me, of all things, a smartwatch.

Re: Monday, February 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Runcible was a NHOI. And a google search turns up only a nonsense word by Edward Lear and some kind of timepiece. I found absolutely no reference to it being a type of spoon. Can someone prove this? Also NHO "chintzy" for a 3/5. What was the TOM for Africa or Puerto Rico in the top box? Of all categ...

I do appreciate that they've mostly gone back to basics with the format. But Chris Harrison is so dry and uncharismatic that.. okay, he's SLIGHTLY better than Ty Treadway, I won't go that far. YMMV on whether or not you like a host on TV, but I can personally attest that in-studio, Chris Harrison d...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I stopped watching when Meredith took over because I found her phony, and constantly vacillating between extremely dull and extremely phony. Then they realized that no one was watching anymore, so they jacked up the format and kept changing hosts. I do appreciate that they've mostly gone back to bas...

Can't say that I've heard of Brownsville before, nor do I see why I should have. 'Cause smokin' in the boys' room is cool. And I actually know that song, both the Brownsville Station version and the Mötley Crüe cover. Don't see why that should lead me to think that Brownsville is a real place.

Absolutely no guesses all around.

I've actually been to Cedar Point twice. The first time, when I was about 7, I was too short to ride almost anything. The second was a senior year trip.
