Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Always good to see another Aggie on the boards! There are a couple of us lurking around- also look for Buddy Wright, from last year's TOC. I also auditioned in Dallas the last time they came around- maybe we'll make it there again! Gig 'em, Lisa, '00 and '12 (finishing the pesky Ph.D. this year!) T...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

I mostly lurked on the old board and tracked this board down last summer, but I never felt confident enough to introduce myself. I suppose the online tests bring out more people and that has encouraged me to post here. Like Indiana Jones, my (board) name is taken from the family dog, and my actual n...

Re: Online Test Discussion (Central), January 18, 2012

40 correct. Those questions go by so fast; it's nice to see them again in the transcript. Many thanks for posting that and reassuring me that I didn't just crash and burn. Misses: Taylor Swift, the Curies (couldn't stop thinking Watson and Crick), Gaugain (I always forget his name), Thomas Paine (wh...

Re: Monday, December 19, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would have loved to see Jason and Kathleen duke it out again. I was impressed that she scrambled back into contention, but so disappointed by a triple stumper FJ. Nice to see players attack the board like that, devouring the clues.

Re: Big Bang Theory Poll

I cringe when I notice how very much like Amy Farrah Fowler I am. Painfully true, but it makes me laugh. I don't look like her, but the things she says are awfully familiar.

I knew the concept but struggled with my wording, but they looked like they were being pretty generous about that. Anyway,...

Re: SHC Round 7 Instant Replay [SPOILERS]

Sheesh. Seriously, there had to be a prohibition against drinking blood? No wonder God about gave up on those Israelites!

Although it does make SOME sense about the rare meat, but still. My first impression was all those vampire things that are so popular right now.

Re: SHC Round 6 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

Enjoyed that bosun question! The first ship I was on actually used the bosun's whistle before all announcements on the 1MC, but the second ship didn't (considered it sort of declasse, I think). I know the seamen all groaned at the sweepers call, though, even years later.
