Re: Audition Test

Those aren't surmised responses, they're guaranteed correct answers. :) I guess it's a good thing I could only remember four of them, then. FTR, we did not get any such advisory from Glenn or Robert during my session. Was your audition the one on 6/13 at 3pm? And the girl who admitted googling a yo...

Re: Multiquote

Title says it all. I guess this is another thing Sony spoiled me on. For those who remember, I used it quite often (some may say abused it, but in my defence I take second place to _Pete :) ) - haven't had a need to here yet, but there haven't been that many messages to necessitate a multi-quote. T...

Re: Audition Test

Yes, the in-person test is intended to weed out the people who have impressive Google-fu. Which, by her own admission, apparently included the young lady sitting in front of me, who I decided was going to be the second coming of Sarah Vowell. And then the gentleman sitting next to her decided she wa...

Re: Bravo, agefen!

I'm still betting it will be back along with the content, when - not sure. My bet is before the start of the SHC, but I'm willing to be wrong here. I'm more certain the content will be back, but I'm not making that a True Daily Double bet. Do you have some inside info there, or is this just a hunch...

Re: Tuesday, July 5, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Second game in a row with a rather un-Kid's Week FJ. Agreed. After yesterday's clue, though, I just simplified it and figured if they ask about "first", it's probably Washington. I have no idea what the smile was about. I can't recall any pictures of him doing so. Possibly a sly reference to the ur...

Re: Monday, July 4, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

The term "Kid's week easy" has been bandied about on here a lot - personally, while the majority of the clues were this, there were some genuine challenges for the youngsters today IMHO, including Final (evidenced by the fact that 2 got it wrong and the third didn't seem sure). It took me about 20 ...

Foe?
Equivalent of a "user ignore" function.

Re: Friday, July 1, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm a Jane Austen completist (read the large volume of her letters and just about any book about her that I can find), and I didn't recognize the first quote about human nature in the Midlands. But the second quote, about 3 or 4 villages, was the Pavlovian quote I'd recommend knowing (the othere Pa...

Re: Friday, July 1, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

If anybody was wondering "Why weren't Ben and Josh used in the Teachers' Tournament?", keep in mind that this show and the rest of Season 27 was taped before the Teachers' Tournament. The show tapes tournaments and other special events closer to their air dates than regular shows. Not that I ever a...

Re: Friday, July 1, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

dave had the idea in the other thread of changing the color, you just have to make sure of what background yours is going to be in. Color BFFFFF seems pretty effective for the lighter blue background (or was it darker blue?) That was me, actually. The spoiler tag won't work unless agefen activates ...

Re: About This Board

I would respectfully second the request for separate subfora if it's not too much trouble. Also, can we have a thread for Auditions discussion? As for spoilers, there's probably a Custom BBCode that agefen can activate; in the meantime, the easiest workaround is to change the text color to match the...

Re: Friday, July 1, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Have been making do with my own judgements for "judges' rulings", but now that the board is back (in a fashion): Ad slogans $1000: Would "[Sony] PSP" be acceptable for the given "Sony Playstation"? (I know there is a crucial difference, that is mine refers to the Playstation Portable.) No, and "Pla...
