Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

Of course no one is above the law. I don't believe that anyone is. However, to the extent that one can rely on the reports, a blunder by the IT staff left the entire email system accessible to anyone at the college. Resetting everyone's passwords to the same thing? This was essentially an open door....

Oh, wow, I'm sorry clt013! I got the author of this game mixed up with Morbeedo's recent animals game! But I meant to thank you! (It was going through my mind that I thought I had already thanked Morbeedo, back on his game thread. But then I didn't scroll back.)

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Consolations to alietr on "monotremes." For me, Roots was the one that took the most time, though I answered everything after first opening the set of questions. I was out of the country in 1976.

Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

If this news is accurate, my opinion of Adrian College's administrators is even lower than it had previously been. I suppose the news is better than might have been the case, but it is still tragically wrong. I feel very bad about the actions of the acquaintance with whom Dr. J spoke. This was sadly...

Re: FJs for the 6/4/18 week

I am pretty sure I translated De Arte Venandi cum Avibus correctly without help, but then I was thinking, "Birds, birds, what is the term for the study of birds?" when time ran out.

I had a great way to count the number of pips on the dominoes. Unfortunately, I did not know how many dominoes were in a set!

Thanks for an interesting TD, SenseiCay!

Re: TD 379 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 7xx (707 & 708 REVEALED)

Only three problems with guessing Paul Robeson for J in the Canadian audio clue: 1) Robeson was American. 2) He couldn't even get into Canada to give a scheduled concert, because his passport had been revoked by the US State Department during the McCarthy era. He sang at the border. 3) In my opinion...

No sign of an invitation to Cleveland for me, either; and this was the best I had ever done on an online test.

No worries, twelvefootboy. I got the Canadian audio clue wrong (99.9% odds), so sheeping is hardly going to be a problem.

Incidentally, change.org seems to have a petition going to change the collective noun for squids to a squad of squids.

Re: TD 379 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 7xx (NOW OPEN)

I will be entering eventually. The TD's are a constant reminder that I don't know much relative to most of the people on the jboard, let alone the subset of those who create the TD's. But it's a nice kind of stretch. Thanks, floridagator!
