Re: Alex Trebek injured

A better question is why is Alex staying in a hotel where prostitution is taking place, and what does it have to do with the writer of this article?

Re: Think Different 3: The 1990s

In 2nd place, with 17 points, 5 singletons, and 2 doubletons...Vanya! Vanya's only answer to score above 3 points was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace , so you might say that he got "Jar-Jarred" out of first place by that question. Poetic justice, since I consider it one of the worst movies ...

Re: Think Different 3: The 1990s

There were 11 singletons on this question, and the sheep was only 3 points. I figured it would come down to "name one of the countries that was formerly part of the Soviet Union or Yugoslavia", and of course a few clever people would nab singletons with answers like Tonga, Nauru, and Micronesia.

Re: SHC Round 1 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

I don't have a cell phone. I don't play video games. It regularly costs me in trivia games. And here with TPH being absent from the new board I didn't think I'd have to rehash this yet again ... Just because you don't do something (or use something, or own something or eat something) doesn't mean y...

Say, didn't we have a tradition of SHCers calling each other out (not that I'm in a position to do that)?

Re: Ideal changes for Season 28

Right, that's what I'm referring to. Zhivago starts with a ?, not ?. If zh were the only way to produce the ? in English, zh would show up naturally in our language (rather than just in transliterations). But we've got words like decision and azure (not to mention the letter J, which produces an af...

Re: Ideal changes for Season 28

. And there's certainly no need for things like the Teacher's Tournament. Especially when it's tainted by a bogus ruling, which taints the next TOC as well. There is not a one-to-one correspondence between the English Z and the Russian letter shaped like a 3. (Assuming that's what you refer to.) Co...
