It's funny - The Eagles came to me as the likely group, but I never got to "Hotel California".

Let me be the first boardie not named TPH to say I have never, ever heard of Shirley Jackson in my life. This was the stand-and-stare of all stand-and-stares. Not even a glimmer of recognition at the reveal. It happens. Evidently.

:roll:
I've never heard of her either.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I know these are reruns so this was probably discussed a while back, but on Friday’s episode, did I miss something or did the contestant actually choose to walk away without using all of her lifelines? No. She got to the $7000 question ("Besides Q, which letter is the only one NOT to appear in any ...

Re: Friday, June 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Would they have taken "End of the world" for Apocalypse? Judges? I would think yes but sadly I had “rapture” and I would bet that wouldn’t fly. It should - the Millerites expected the end of the world would begin with the return of Christ, which would trigger the Rapture. If the judges didn't accep...

Alex threw just about every jinx at Emma at the beginning of the game, and on a couple of occasions during the game. It almost worked, but 3-leaf clover doesn't bring luck to the person who picks it, and thus the ancient curse was broken.
I saw what you did there. :D

Was at Nashville auditions today. Two tests. Don't know if knowledge base just matched well, but the first was pretty darn easy. Second just a little tougher. Crazy how much easier it was than the online, though...

Re: J! in the Media

Not sure if this counts as "media" but The Straight Dope message board has a discussion about James's run that morphs into a discussion about changing the way the game is played.

Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

I'm not sure if this is the right thread, but in thinking about James's phenomenal run, I can't help but wonder if another advantage he has is that he has two opponents, both of whom would like to win. Often it seems like his opponents are knocking each other out trying to keep up with James.

Johnson. Don't worry about which one as Alex will give it to you. that crap is so annoying...all of those senators/presidents pretty much fit that bill as well...as well as most of the stuff asked on the show But in the context of the clue, only one Johnson would fit - only Andrew was almost "ex-pr...
