Re: Calling all former TOCers!

This is the order of the ToC pictures that appear large and centered for about a second each: 2013, 2001, 2000, 2006, 2003, 1994, 1992, 1990, 1988. These are the background pictures, from left to right: Top: 2013, 2010, 2004, 1989 Middle: 1993, 1995, 2007 Bottom: 1991, 1999, 2001 I like how the ear...

Re: Pet Intellectual Peeves

A perennially popular (yet strangely absent) Pet Intellectual Peeve -- qualifying absolutes -- gets a new (to me, anyway) twist. I was doing a little summer vacation research and saw this on the website for the Queen Mary in Long Beach: NOT JUST UNIQUE .... ONE OF A KIND http://www.queenmary.com Ca...

Re: Calling all former TOCers!

Does Ken Jennings count as a ToCer? I suppose that would come down to whether or not the UToC counts as an official ToC (even though it would only affect him). The TV Spot gives 360 as the number of past ToCers, so it can be concluded whether or not he is included by counting all former contestants.

43/50 here. I said "eerie" instead of "aerie," but I doubt they'll give me it.

Possible progress for pub trivia

Just read this on Gizmodo about a restaurant in Southern California paying customers not to use their phones while dining. The restaurant mentioned in the article gives customers a 5% discount to surrender their phones at the door. Cheating is definitely a problem these days. If pubs adopted this s...

Re: Pet Intellectual Peeves

Overheard at work today, during a discussion on if we should be drinking milk: "Humans are the only animals that drink another animal's milk." Now, while I don't wish to get into the discussion on whether we should be drinking milk or not, I will say that argument doesn't help your point at all. Th...

Re: RYan Holznagel's game show debut?

What was the shopping spree like that you won? How did it work? When I was little, I always imagined that if you won a shopping spree you could just race around a store and throw everything you want into your shopping carts and have it paid for. I promise I don't believe that anymore.

Yeah, I misread your entire post. Didn't realize that those were clues and we were supposed to come up with the correct terms.

Re: Monday, July 23, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Other "Queen's English" clues, based on personal experience: "When you see a girl holding a drink in each hand, she'll probably get mad if you tell her that she likes to "double fist." In England, they use this phrase to refer to holding two drinks." Why will she get mad? I'm confused. "Double fist...

TPH, you've seriously never heard of the best picture from just last year?? I don't pay attention to the film industry, especially not the awards. And a French romantic film definitely doesn't sound like my thing. Then if anything , you should hang it up because you refuse to acknowledge a vital pa...

[quote="StevenH" For the most part I liked this board, but there were two categories in the DJ round that I thought were awful: the Olympic years one and the movies from initials one. Most of the time a clue that asks for a year will be bad, and in this case I thought that the information that was g...

I figured it'd be about Bernanke; possibly relating "the Great Moderation" to him. I really wanted to see that last clue.
