Re: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Why has nobody commented on Julie's wag on st. Thomas ruining the possibility of a win for her? Before that clue she was at 8400 and after Beth got that wrong she was at 16800. 1) Beth was never going to ring in from a lock position. 2) As mentioned above, of course Julie has to ring in. It's the o...

I'm not a language expert, but I'm pretty sure that the two vowels make it a dipthong, not a two-syllable word. diphthong Went to Riverside Cathedral instead and was blown away, mainly by the detailed woodwork throughout.

Also, I think you wouldn't see penguins at the south pole. It's too far inland and too cold (even for penguins). they tend to live on the perimeter of Antarctica and even there they have to huddle together for warmth. (At least that's what we tell the women.) and there aren't any bears at the North...

When I saw the island with the "East/West" clue, I started to get ready to say Timor...it was SO kind of them to zoom out the map and show Argentina, making it an instaget even for a geophobe like me. I got Falklands just from the shape of the islands, even before they zoomed out to show the relati...

Google has a parent company? I thought it was just Google. It's a holding company, not a parent company. Alphabet was created to own Google, the same way bank holding companies are created to own banks. Citicorp is the holding company of Citibank. Bank of America Corporation is the holding company ...

Hammer, that word does not mean what you think it does. I suggest you look up both esoteric and exoteric.

I said "military" instead of "soliders" for the thrid amendment - close enough? Is there a nuance that I'm missing?

I'd be perfectly willing to swear I heard the new champ say HORTH. I think that's why he did not get immediate credit for Trojan Horse.

If I'd been there, I would have been tempted to say viva voce instead of voice vote, which still would have satisfied the category. General Robert rules!!!

Insta get FJ. McKinley lived 8 days after he was shot. Enough time for people to ask, "other than that mr. President, how was your trip to Buffalo?" I think the reason so many people are saying San Francisco is because President Harding died there on his way back from Alaska. But he wasn't shot.

There were not a lot of surprises in that game. I'm glad it's over because all day I've been worried about getting spoiled on it somewhere on the internet.

I got Sun Belt right away and then was trying to decide whether the other one was rust belt or snow belt. The term Rust Belt honestly doesn't get used as much as it used to, because in most cases it's been so long since there was industry in that area. The term snow belt refers to the whole North, i...

This is not good to hear. I want to meet and talk to Alex before it's too late because he is one of the few people that I idolize. However, I feel that trying to write a letter to him or find a way to contact him personally would jettison my chances of being a contestant. Should I act as if I'm goi...
