Given what I just came home to in the mail, I am no longer concerned about their financial condition. Unless the damn thing bounces.
Me too.

The most common wrong answer for the "Je pense, donc je suis" question is a real RTFQ moment (unless there were people who simply didn't know or remember the Latin and just put the thing they knew).
Raises hand.... I need to RTFQ more.

Now you know "This Julia Roberts film..." for $200 is probably "Pretty Woman." You may not like it or agree with it, but association is how you make the big bucks.
Because that's the only film she's ever been in , right?
If you have no guess, Pretty Woman is better than that.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

"Pretty Woman" is a film?! As opposed to...? A song by Roy Orbison to which the title of the film clearly alludes and which appears in the soundtrack of the film? And the answer of course is, yes. The song by Roy Orbison is "Oh, Pretty Woman" so there's no possible way to confuse the two titles. An...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Relegated back to E (Bayou E, Div 2).

Last 2 times I've been in E, I've moved up to D, but I needed a strong showing at the end of the season to do it, so nothing taken for granted now.

Re: TD 420 - Free your mind (Q3 Revealed)

At the risk of eliminating myself, I don't think I got scored on Q2. The funny thing is, I don't actually remember what I put down, so I could legitimately have not put anything down at all for that question.

Any reason I should know what instrument the concertmaster plays? Could be anything. Odd when $400 is my only miss in a music category.
This is a joke, right? You're complaining that you don't know stuff that the rest of us seem to get, then you're asking why should you know stuff?

Again, I'll bite. How many European island nations do you know? Did you guess one of them? UK, Ireland, Cyprus. I can at least assume it's probably not the UK, which still leaves it 1-in-3. Not good odds for the top box at all. So did you guess? You complain about 1 in 3 odds, but that's way better...

In this stack are the FU stacks (really hard ones, no joke questions in the first five), ... I don't believe there are any of these. I'll admit they've badly estimated how difficult a particular question is, but I can't remember a stack that I wasn't able to get through to $5k that required any men...

We didn't need to identify the actual PM. As Kara said, it is a very well-known fact that Icelandic surnames are patronymic Citation very highly needed. I didn't even know there were enough people in Iceland for there to even be naming conventions there. What do you want us to do? Take a poll? Trus...

The show's website is terrible with spoilers in their "This Week on Millionaire" videos. Yet, I still watch them for some reason. Best of retro luck to alietr and 1stlvlthinker this week, although I (probably) already know how one of you fares. :twisted: I must not be interesting enough to be place...

Geez man. Literally the only queen you can name is the right answer, but you won't even consider it because it COULD be wrong? There have been lots of NHOIs in the $200 box. With literally nothing pointing to the one queen I can name, I figured it had to be someone I couldn't name. Because if it we...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I meant how many could you name without looking? Just QEII, but that by no means guarantees she'll be the right answer. They very well could trick us by throwing one of the lesser known queens in there. Geez man. Literally the only queen you can name is the right answer, but you won't even consider...
