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

To address the point that TPH meant to make, it couldn't be any city in Washington in the top box. There's no way they'd ask about Richland, or Prosser, or Yakima in the top box. There are two, maybe four cities that it might be there: Seattle or Olympia, with a slight possibility of Tacoma or Spok...

Here is my favorite take on a publicly-seen YMCA.

Re: FJs for the 4/16/18 week

6% get on a top box? That has to be a record low.

Why should I pay attention to movies anyway if they all suck?
Same reason I should pay attention to country music.

Okay... so why is it that, even when I do zoom in on keywords, they never set the wheels in motion?

Re: Friday, April 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Another game where I was just too exhausted from work to play along. "Squad goals" and "show me receipts" still struck me as particularly baffling clues. The Gorilla DD seemed very wide open. I didn't see any way to narrow that down to gorilla at all. That lifeguard clue was easily a coinflip on Rea...

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

I've never had a drive to pay attention to movies. Sturgeon's Law is always in full force with them, and I live way too far from a multiplex. I just checked now and the only thing showing in my local theater is apparently a biopic on some crappy soulless Christian pop band (oh wait, that's ALL Chris...

Uh... even if you DID include animated, I doubt I could get to 5. I haven't been paying attention to the animated ones either, There is absolutely no way you can't name 5 movies to come out in the past 4 years. Seriously, just put forth the minimum effort here. La La Land, Deadpool... uhhhhhh....

I think the writers jumped the shark on "if you have time to lean you have time to clean". Anybody here heard that one?

Ice Cream + two names = always a coinflip on Ben & Jerry's or Baskin-Robbins. Any suggestions on narrowing them down?
If you thought "Baskin Cohen" and "Robbins Greenfield" were plausible names I'm not sure we can do much to help you.

The clue didn't specify first or last though.

If Alex gives the LTAM in both rounds and they still manage to clear both boards... finish your drink. In fact, finish your friend's drink too, and drink everything in the cabinet.

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Years ago I was in a church choir that sang an anthem in German based on this verse: Ich bin der Weg, die Wahrheit und das Leben . I thought it was cool that all three grammatical genders were represented: masculine, feminine, and neuter. Interesting! In Latin, and also in the original Greek, all t...

Saw no way to figure out "colonies" in the top box. Didn't recognize anything in Music or Apps, in the sense that I've heard of P!nk but not that song, and knew the song "Here" but not who it was by. NHO "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" either. Poll request? Ice Cream + two names = always a coinflip...

Even my Sunday school was lacking. We only ever did banal Wee Sing songs that had six words repeated ad nauseam, or craft projects.

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

I haven't seen Roseanne since I was 5, and at that point, I didn't know who any of the actors were. I guessed wrong, then. Sorry. But if I may shoehorn in one of the themes of this thread - I did guess. I didn't say "TPH could like literally any show," but rather I tried to make an inference based ...

Christmas was one of the key words. Then how was I supposed to know that? Again, I keep getting told to KISS on the clues, but every time I do, I manage to completely tune out the most important word. Also, my instinct marks you out as a potential Roseanne fan (blue collar, Midwestern - I think you...

All but Terabithia in the Kids' Books category. Ran the Food category. College Fight Song felt very YEKIOYD. Fight songs are dumb anyway. They all sound the same anyway. NHO "Lady Bird", and looking it up on Wikipedia, I recognize absolutely none of the names attached to it either. Any reason I shou...
