Re: TD 236: Wrestlemania

Did Gallup use the US Census Bureau definitions for metro areas? What minimum population cutoff did they use? I happened to have read the article before it was part of this TD; they used "Metropolitan Statistical Areas", a designation used by the census bureau (and in zipcode files given by the USP...

Good lord Michael, no wonder you were itching to talk about this game :)

Well done, sir. I'm Jewish, I've known many friends who have traveled to Israel, and I'm fairly sure I've never heard of El-Al Airlines in my entire life.

I know I have a public persona that will rub some folks the wrong way, on occasion. I understand it. Having said that, I am *so* glad she won.

That video is so inspired (I saw it before it was linked here). That is, however, not the best frame for them to choose to display as a still :p

Re: TD 236: Wrestlemania

Mitch asked if "children of Zeus/Jupiter" that weren't part of the original myths counted. They do not. Specifically, I wanted to use the fact that DC Comics recently revealed a "retcon" that said Wonder Woman is the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta. :) Hey, if we're gonna have a TD about wrestling, ...

What led to "Cologne" on We're the Guys for $200? Drakkar Noir is famous enough that it was a running joke on an episode of Family Guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5OSOkwv9po (It's repeated dozens of times in the ep, but this is the only non terrible video I could quickly find. It's at the end)

As opposed to this remake.

I was just gonna say ... can we talk about that last DD bet as well? It seemed like she was aiming to fall to 3rd. I know it was a difficult scenario under tight timing, but really ... I was expecting a $100 wager.

Re: Tuesday, March 17, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For the 2nd straight episode, I called my 12 year old into the room for FJ. Prime numbers are his current obsession; he actually said "13! No, 11! No, 23!" all in rapid succession, well within time (I assumed he would have had the same correction time as Kristin). I thought 13 initially as well; lik...

Wow. OK historians, someone surely knows the last time we had a single player in FJ? I don't remember ever seeing it, nor do I remember someone being as far in the negative as Stephanie. You never know how nerves are gonna hit you until they hit you.

Two of Bruce's biggest albums (with the E Street Band) are "Nebraska" and "Greetings From Asbury Park". Asbury Park, in particular, is also where the band played nonstop in it's formative years.

Re: Friday, March 6, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think that how well known Sancious is compared to the rest of the band is irrelevant; it's pretty trivial to determine he's talking about a member of the E Street Band. I also didn't think E Street was an actual place. In hindsight, saying "E Street Band" as I'm typing this does make it stand out ...

Re: Friday, March 6, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It doesn't surprise me at all that the FJ answers were all over the map. I don't know what Chicago is about, but I immediately thought of 4 possible answers (Nebraska, Asbury Park, 10th Avenue and E Street). I went with Nebraska because it seemed the most likely to not have members living there.

Why did Alex express surprise when Ravi got in ahead of Stephanie on "maple?" Did anyone else make the mistake of saying "Secretariat" instead of "Seabiscuit?"
