Re: Polo Poll

Look. You're on a national television show; you're in the public eye. We "shouldn't" worry about behavior, clothing, voice volume etc; but we're going to. Human nature and all that. It also appears to be human nature to care what other people think, but if you can get past that and focus on the gam...

This will be the third time the Space Needle has been the FJ answer since 2013, BTW. Interesting. I did guess correctly, but the word "roof" felt wrong. That made me think of a building, not a tower. I don't think of towers as having roofs. Not that I would have thought of the Space Needle, but yea...

Architects are even with lawyers on my Scumbag Occupations list. An architect ruined my condominium complex, and spent $7 million to do it!

I answered "Russian and Greek" for FJ. Think they would have given it to me? I know "Russian" is probably not as accurate as "Cyrillic," but reading up on the history, Peter the Great seems to be largely responsible for the modern Cyrillic alphabet and the Soviet Union mandated and standardized usa...

but I really feel fairly certain that Matt suffers from an emotive disability. Who the hell doesn't suffer from some kind of emotive disability in this modern world? I have no doubt had I grown up in the 90s instead of the 50s, I would have been diagnosed with ADHD, or Aspbergers' or some other dam...

Twitter agrees with me about Matt: (censored mean comments) I thought this was a place to make the players feel welcome at . Since when are we reciting hateful crap from Twitter here? I'd be amazed if Twitter liked any contestant for their his playing skill. Twits can twitter all they want, but we'...

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

Forgive me for "adultsplaining," but I would advise spending at least a few years navigating the world outside a "very progressive high school" before you start correcting others with full confidence on how our entire culture actually works in practice.

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

I agree (!) with gnash about mansplaining, although I'm not sure how much language influences behavior in a free society. AFAICT, mansplaining hasn't caught on; on this board is the first time I heard it. I do take issue with comparing it to "crusade," as that word in its definition of "lead or take...
