Re: Thursday, November 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ran More Than One Meaning and, surprisingly, Art & Artists. Brainfart on "best man" and "Kennebunkport" (how's that for a Hawley-Smoot?), plus "frog" for "fetlock", kept me from 5/5 in those. I wasn't smarter than a 5th Century Raider, as I had a bagel in that category. Also bombed Bestselling Nonfi...

I said "face the music" on Blank the Blank for $200 and don't see how that could be wrong. Judges?
It's not compensing a certain musician, so I'd have to say no.
I don't think I've ever heard the word "compense" before so that threw me.

Re: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ran Oh, Hello Songs. Precalled Adele, but sadly my other precall of "Everlong" by Foo Fighters (easily one of my top 20 favorite songs of all time) was nowhere in sight. I said "face the music" on Blank the Blank for $200 and don't see how that could be wrong. Judges? Embarrassed that I couldn't pul...

Re: Tuesday, November 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any reason I should know that Paws for $400 was a leopard and not a cheetah? Don't tell me you also have proso paw gnosia! +1 The paw had spots and a leopard can't change his spots. Just like he can't resist going with the empty paw even when the other paw has the correct response. As the resident ...

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

But not too old. The Declaration of Independence is definitely too modern, so go back. But if you hit the Code of Hammurabi, you've gone too far. Shoulda pulled over and asked for directions somewhere in the middle ages. But considering that my knowledge of world history is almost nonexistant, I fi...

Re: Tuesday, November 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The fact that I don't know anything ABOUT the Magna Carta other than "important early document" sank me here and caused me to clam.

I really need to work on this "half-knowing" thing. So many things I'm aware exist, but couldn't tell you what they are.

Re: Tuesday, November 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ran Awesome Technology and Speak Now, but was 0/5 in Farming and Bodies of Water. Also only $200 in Star Is Born and Forever Hold Your Peace. NHO the song at $400 in Girl in the Song. I thought I knew my candy bars, but "Nutrageous" was a NHOI. Any reason I should know that Paws for $400 was a leopa...

Re: Monday, November 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ran Internal Organ Practice and 6 Letter Double G, but 0/5 in Russian Interference, Arthurian Characters, Astronauts. I got myself in the Hammer category but my only other get was $200. In true TPH fashion, I managed to brainfart all of the other three. "Bill and coo" made me WTF. Poll request? Behi...

Re: Friday, November 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

NHO Nene Leakes, a total Hawley-Smoot name. Once again, it's weird when $200 is not only my only miss, but also my NHOI. Also NHO "Jake the Snake". There are lots of possible rhyming nicknames for "Jake", and none seemed more obvious than the other. Ran Silent L, Science Abbrev., and 20th Century Po...

Heh, Kettle Chips. I picked up a bag of these earlier this week (spoiler for size)
I've seen those too. I think the path was obscured because I've seen kettle-cooked chips in other brands too.

Re: Thursday, November 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And I only knew Portugal. the Man because I hate-looked-up the song they played. For some reason, that song is like ASMR to me - annoying. But to each his own. I blame fun. for starting the trend of "vaguely indie-ish act with gratuitous periods in their name". Honestly, I don't mind that song. I'l...

Re: Thursday, November 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Trebek's introductory speech was unintentionally foreboding. Ran Out-of-Body Experience. 19th Century Plays was a bagel. Hit and miss in the AMA category. I clammed on Eilish since I wasn't sure if she'd had another hit yet, and on Jonas Brothers because I know there are only three of them yet there...

Re: What ought to happen next?

Isn't Johnny already doing everything in post? I do wonder what the plan is if he should go, too. Unlike on Wheel, where the announcer also describes the prizes and does other bits in between, Johnny only does an intro anymore (which might explain why it's been years since we've seen him do one of t...

Re: Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ran Requests and Starts with "E". TV Crime Shows, however, was my only bagel. Give me another Lucifer clue already! "Bottom Line" at $800 cost me the run, since the first three were all phrases with amounts of money in them and I couldn't shift in time. I have literally never seen a fig before that ...

Ran Blank "Um". No idea how "ursine ranger" failed to get me to Smokey Bear. Not only was $400 my only miss in TV Spin-Offs, it was also my only NHOI. That seems to be happening a lot lately and I have no idea why. No guess on FJ! Lach Trash: gypsum (finally got it right!), Hawaii, bluebell. Also go...

Re: Monday, November 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can't say I've heard the words "politicize" or "acclimatize" before. Definitely haven't heard the latter, though I have heard "acclimate".

0/5 in Dam. $200 could have been any country.

"Gratis" in the top box was also unfamiliar to me.

No guess on FJ!

For me it was an ICBJAA (it could be just about anything).
