ATB. I won't be around to play a lot of these the day they come out, but I'll try to catch up.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 1 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I gave a response of "Ms. Frisby" because I couldn't remember if she was Miss, Ms., or Mrs. "Brisby" would have to be accepted, even if Ms. might not be.

Re: Friday, July 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The new champ is an A-rundler who's done well in the last two WQC's (I remember his name from the sign-in sheet at One Star Bar last year). I've played him twice in minileagues and lost both times. In addition to Scorigami, he also founded the site gameshowtheory.com, which hasn't been updated in a ...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I got my 1,000th correct answer yesterday, but it didn't pay huge dividends, because I lost 7(5)-6(4). I will be returning to B next season, hopefully in Horizon and not one of the new leagues like Yanny.

Re: Monday, July 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Keely Smith/Louis Prima seems like a very obscure pairing unless you're over 70 years old. Curious if anyone here got this right. (raises hand) He's a big deal where I'm from, because we have a large Italian-American population and one of his ex-wives used to live in the county until her death. Our...

Re: Tuesday, June 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't recall hearing, "Looks like someone could have a big payday today," but it didn't matter. Ouch. I got FJ right away, but UAE (for Abu Dhabi) was a good guess that I never considered. It's a much, much wealthier country than Bangladesh, and it's in Asia. That makes up for missing yesterday's ...

Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

What Adrian College did is the security equivalent of leaving a front door not just unlocked but completely wide open. This. If everyone knew that there was a college-wide password reset, very likely dozens (if not hundreds) of people took advantage of it to get into other people's accounts. Were t...

2018 World Quizzing Championships

Results are coming in very slowly on the Quest website. I took it in New Jersey with SterlacciJ and several future contestants (i.e., in the pool). The second half was much easier than the first! I did about the same (low 80's) as last year.

I began the season with my first 0(0) in almost two years. Totally forgot there was a female Colonel Sanders. At least my 0-fer was against tjconn, who's beaten me more times than anyone else. And I still have perfect defense...

Re: Wednesday, May 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had the same first (and only guess) as our flightless friend. Of course, if that had been the correct response, they'd want first and last name.
Anyone else say "Senate Hill" instead of Parliament Hill for the first DD?
