Re: Sploofus thread

Y'all could be right, but I routinely see the timer counting down to 20 seconds left, then 15, then ten, then I go to the you-got-it-right (or wrong, a lot lately) screen, and the number of seconds generally feels right to me. Like, it'll say ten seconds left, and then the next screen will say I got...

Weyoun suggested that he never played unless he was on a wired connection. It makes a huge difference for me:

Opponent missed Total Eclipse of the Heart and Kenny Loggins, leading to an 8(5) - 8(4) tie. I don't get it.

Re: LLML: '80s Music (fall 2015)

I knew Alphaville was from Europe, but I thought it was Scandinavia for some reason. But there was no mistaking Scorpions (incidentally, when that song first came out, I thought it was "Raunchy Like a Hurricane"). Almost talked myself out of Cameo --> "That looks like Word Up.

Sure, he might have won lots of games on Jeopardy! but Roger Craig didn't go see Alphaville in concert 3 times like I did and know they were from Germany. 6(9) - 5(9) win! That Cameo song is one of my 10 favourite songs of all time, so that was a snap. Big Audio Dynamite - also awesome, so the Mick...

.38 Special and Santana got me to "Hold On", it took me until Thompson Twins to get rid of the "on". I didn't recognize any of the other song(s?).

Re: Monday, September 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I did get The Band, it felt really easy, but probably due to not realizing not everyone is immersed in the same pop culture as me. I would have felt much sympathy for anyone who guessed Aretha Franklin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wta5GU3FNhA I know of Paul and Clay, so it was an easy get here. ...
