In before someone says the word "hubris". :lol:

Re: Tuesday, April 21, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I grew up in Staten Island, or in terms of accents, as I call it .. "Brooklyn Lite". I tell people that the louder, angrier and/or more animated I get, TA CLOSER I GET TA BROOHKLYN. I swear, I went on a Carribean cruise as a college student, and THREE different times, when I said just the word "Hell...

Re: Wednesday, April 22, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Yet another FJ clue in which living in The Greatest City In The World was an advantage in getting it right. *flex* No it wasn't. :) Seriously, no one who lives here in NYC actually goes to the Statue of Liberty, let alone reads all the words on the plaque in the pedestal. I've said it before: I've ...

+2 (both myself and my son) for "Remembering everything but the poem title". I was trying to recite the rest of the poem, the parts I know that aren't the commonly known lines, searching for the title within the words, but would never have gotten there in time even if it was a path. And I'm on the "...

Re: Monday, April 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The general American population really needs to understand the difference between personality habits/types/possible "disorders", and terms like arrogance, hubris, etc. As a parent of a highly ADHD child who spouts out more answers than any 12 year old has a right to know, who still manages to have t...

Which first requires that you know who Tyson is. Yeah, just the most publicly known, famous scientist/host of multiple television shows/face of scientific education of the last 40 years or so. I mean, how many people would be aware of HIM? (Pretty sure the answer is at least 98% of the people on th...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 15, 2015

More 2014-15 than I would have anticipated. After all that prep reading, I blanked on the college football champs, but a few of the ones I didn't specifically prepare for were ones that I absorbed the general knowledge for anyway: Sia, Better Call Saul, American Sniper, Lego Movie.

Re: 2015 Online Test

Not sure if I got there. Feel iffy, but pretty close. I do feel like there were several questions right in my wheelhouse .. V for Vendetta, the Hobbit, Better Call Saul? That's stuff I know every day anyway :D

TPH, remember Jupiter as the biggest planet because he's the biggest (dad/boss) of the Roman Gods.

Think they would they accept "Dropkick me, Jesus" instead of "Jesus, dropkick me"?

Rock on, Alex! Another very well-played game by our champion. I'm thinking hbomb1947 may have done well on the Easter Island category. ;) Actually I didn't do that great in that category -- 3 for 5. None of my tour guides had mentioned people's remains actually being buried in the ahus; and while I...

Re: Monday, April 13, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

My negbait was Menzel instead of Chenoweth. Same here. I thought this one was a total coin toss. I instinctly said Menzel also (and mentally prayed I was remembering her name and not what Travolta called her), but with a few moments of clarity, it makes a lot more sense; Wicked was her big break, a...

Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick, how did I not put 2 and 2 together with Alex's identity? That's why I know your icon; I've watched you play at the WSOP also!

Re: Friday, April 10, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm guessing, despite the lack of pic, that that's you Alex. I remember seeing your dog watching Jeopardy elsewhere.

Did you even realize you made the "all in" motion for the TDD, or was it such instinct that you didn't you notice? :p
