Re: Monday, February 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So, is there irony in the fact that Florence's failure to exercise her right to remain silent cost her the ability to participate in FJ!? (Or just Alanis Morissette irony?) I had a bit of a derp moment on the "Alienist" clue, considering that I've seen the episodes so far, but do you think that the...

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It's apparently a 9,500 - square foot house on about a third of an acre (not much room for a yard) built in 1892. It's supposedly single-family and has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. And, still, no one has ever seen Lars. Nor Carlton. The Doorman. Or Norm's wife, Vera or Margaret's husband, Lou...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

I did not see an option for picking a city, and my profile already has my zipcode. The reply seemed to refer to the online test, yet I thought the dates were March 6, 7 and 8 : Thank you for registering to take the Jeopardy! Online Test. You're now one step closer to standing onstage with Alex Treb...

Russell Wilson, quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, has been signed by the New York Yankees (he was drafted by the Texas Rangers in 2013 and they traded him for "future considerations"). He will attend training camp in March and will be assigned to the Yankees' AA farm club in Trenton, NJ.

Now that we've got the Carnegie thing settled, is it an en-dive or an on-deeve?
en-dive, unless you're pretentious. And I was a French major in college! ;)
I'm pretentious.
So is the woman in this commercial.

Re: Thursday, December 28, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Were there 12 months at the time (September, October, November and December are 7,8,9, and 10 after all)? I certainly hope so, their calendar would drift out of sync very quickly if there wasn’t. (I think the discrepancy between the root words of the month and it’s place on the calendar was when th...

Nothing Biblical can be connected to the Zodiac can it? Not definitely, but there is a lot of astrological speculation. Here are two articles - they don't even agree on which tribe of Israel gets associated with which zodiac sign. http://www.usbible.com/Astrology/stars_of_israel.htm http://www.llew...

I will be checking the box in the weekly poll stating that I only got Bavaria in FJ.
So shall I. I didn't think Bremen was a state.

"Highbrow" comes from phrenology? Brutally difficult FJ in my opinion. Cerebral was my guess but I know it didn't feel right. Agreed. Ridiculous degree of difficulty. I had "longhair" even though I was pretty sure phrenology had to do with head but not hair. As they say, any answer better than no a...

Anyone else go for the (possible) Pawnee negbait thanks to Parks and Rec? I hesitated a little, and that's with having a Shawnee Park here in town on the Ohio River. It even gets flooded out, so it's really down in the valley. That helped me, as did the fact that I went to college in Shawnee, OK.

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

I saw no way to "Be more specific" on "E". That was a tough clue. They gave you an example (cub to cube), and E is such a versatile letter that a 3-minute song can only cover one function. And yet we got the umpteen billionth "Deer in the headlights after a BMS followed by triple-stumper" moment. I...

I liked all three players in this game. I remember Mallomars from childhood and had no idea whether they still existed or not. Got Enron pretty quickly. My only knowledge of Mallomars comes from the Harvard Lampoon parody Bored of the Rings : "Goodgulf snatched the ball away from Pepsi and glowered...

Re: 2017 Current Events Study Guide

Speaking of the MLS, the Columbus Crew is apparently moving to Austin. Wow. All I can say is that a few USL teams along the Ohio River (read: FC Cinci, Lou City FC) will be following this story closely. If Columbus does move to Austin, that opens the door wide for one of them (or both, though unlik...

Lach Trash: "You rang?" Congrats! I'm impressed! How did you know that one? (Since I'm a bass/baritone, I took great pleasure in imitating Ted Cassidy in my response.) I read on TV Tropes that it was an ad-lib that was left in because the producers liked it. I've also seen it parodied a few times. ...

Re: Monday, September 18, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Seven years of seminary training served me in good stead for FJ! - both from studying Hebrew and also the Hebrew Scriptures. For me there were two ways to approach it - shortest book, and "servant of Yahweh".
