I'm playing it; like everyone else, I said Elektra instead of Frank Miller. Otherwise, I'm doing OK.

Re: LL64: For the LLamas Among Us

Got one question wrong in Style yesterday... and fell from first to fourth in my group. (The miracle is that I was in first EVER, for those who have seen me shop for clothes.) Stella Zawistowski continues her unintentional one-woman crusade against my trivia contestant self-image.

Re: Monday, April 27, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Being familiar with the Sondheim musical "Pacific Overtures" helped me get two of the Millard Fillmore questions. It's about how Japan was opened in the 19th century to dealing with the West, so coming up with the country that was had been isolated was an instaget. Then coming up with Fillmore's su...

OK, I think it's time to make this clear: The commenter who has made more posts than any other person in this thread: Has made more than half of all his posts EVER in this thread. Prior to this thread, had not posted in over seven months. Has managed to re-start this for no apparent reason other tha...

Re: LL64: For the LLamas Among Us

Of course, the NEXT book on my list to read is "Master and Commander". I should have gotten that one anyway, and it turned a potential win into a loss. (I had no chance on Fukuyama, having never heard of him.) This is where being an old... crank... did NOT help. I remember all the "end of history" ...

Well, so much for giving the benefit of the doubt.

Re: Monday, April 13, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

What was the opening comment from Trebek about? Was there some discussion of Alex's poker playing success being an advantage that I missed, or was it something else? Just about some chatter about how the returning champion (didn't mention Alex by name) has an advantage, but only if the exact same c...

No; no, it's not. Bama might have crawled out on a branch and sawed it off behind him, but a bad analogy does not equal what you're implying.

Your example does neglect that among the things he was taught was that the slaves were also available to meet ALL his personal needs at his whim. Tends to warp the effectiveness of your analogy.

Re: LL64: For the LLamas Among Us

I don't know when the Style ML was written, but presuming it wasn't this week, that's a hell of a coincidence to have the L'Eggs question referencing its creation in 1969 three days after Mad Men discussed the brand's emergence in an episode set in early 1970. I built my defense as much on the TV s...

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Chris Hurt on theatre productions here in New York (one of them in which he played Walt Whitman, so you can imagine the ribbing he would have been in for if he had missed on Leaves of Grass ), and I can tell you that you will not find a more generous,...

Another art deco skyscraper in midtown Manhattan with a stunningly decorated lobby is the GE Building at 30 Rockefeller Center, popularly referred to as "30 Rock" and famously housing the headquarters of NBC.

Re: LL64: For the LLamas Among Us

Getting super nerdy today :ugeek: , I decided to look to see who should be getting promoted into our Rundle next season. I found one of the Horizon E Rundle players in his 6th season. In the previous 5 seasons, he had gotten 55-66 TCA every season in either R or E. This season, he jumped up to 93 T...

I still don't get why with some denominations, you have to be a member of the church to take Eucharist/Communion/whatever, when most say only that you have to be a Christian. I suspect that in many cases--I couldn't say all--it has to do with whether a Church accepts the doctrine of Transubstantiat...

Re: TD 238: College Fight and Victory Songs

This isn't a TD, it's a Match Game (at least as the board identifies it). It can't be a Think Differently if the victory is awarded for thinking similarly.

Whereas I'm familiar with the former (from Shark Tank and the Canadian version Dragon's Den) but not the latter. He's known for being married to Gabrielle Giffords. He's also piloted the space shuttle, and his brother just launched for a year-long mission on the ISS. I didn't know he was married to...
