Re: Friday, April 3, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Could anyone post the Confirmation clue and explain what was wrong with it? 1041_20150403.jpg Confirmation is not a requirement for taking communion. I received communion no less than once per week for six years before I received confirmation. Brian Same here; I said "Eucharist", which is the only ...

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm surprised the Academy didn't prevent all that 'Duh, what year is it?' confusion by using Roman numerals to designate each Oscar ceremony, years before the NFL thought of it for Super Bowls(another one where you'll hear, 'And by '2015 Super Bowl, we mean the one for the 2014 season... ) Roman nu...

Re: Friday, March 27, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This FJ just shows how much perspective plays a role. I pressed 'skip' on the DVR before Alex even finished reading it. Then I get on here, expecting everyone to be amazed that it was a TS, only to see that a lot of people missed it as well. I haven't heard (probably paid attention) the airline nam...

Re: LL64: For the LLamas Among Us

The top four people in A Metro are all within a point of each other, and right now, the tiebreaks are going my way. But this one is going to be crazy to the end. A couple of RTFQ screw-ups like "Phobos & Deimos" and "goiter" the past few days didn't help. I said Saudi Arabia and Iraq because I remem...

Re: UPDATE: Final call for new trivia game show

Short-time lurker on this board. Thought I'd share a few details. But I don't want to say too much because I did sign an NDA, and I don't want to run afoul of its terms, which I only lazily read. Would it be safe to assume that someone who is trying to remain low key would not use the same alias on...

Re: LL64: For the LLamas Among Us

"M. Butterfly" should definitely NOT have been accepted; that's the title of David Henry Hwang's play about the whole Butterfly mythos, reworking it into an American diplomat and the male Chinese spy who seduces him. That's how I knew Belasco wrote the original one-act that Puccini worked from and H...

Khrushchev for me in seconds seeing no reason to guess anyone else. Debating the spelling took more time than clue processing. I was impressed that both players got the spelling right. Khrushchev is the Kyrgyzstan of world leaders. (And Leon Czolgosz is the Kyrgyzstan of world leader assassins.) An...

Re: LL64: For the LLamas Among Us

I really didn't expect to get a win in A with 2 correct, but I will take it. DEE-fense! Which is how I lost yesterday -- the group leader played much better D..... Is it wrong to notice that a certain remorseless answer machine in LL63 is now 0-3-2 and in the relegation bracket? Too bad. Thought fo...

Re: LL64: For the LLamas Among Us

Was very tempted to say Arlo Guthrie, but the birthday reference saved me.

Some very interesting results in A Metro yesterday, especially considering how LL63 ended.

Was a little surprised at the valuations... Big Red was by far the easiest, and Gumbo was a bit of a negbait. Actually pre-called Edgar the Raven for the $200 clue (they used to have ones named Allen and Poe as well, but I guess Ozzie needed the money for Flacco's contract). Surprised it wasn't use...

Re: Colonel Dave running for state senate in Virginia

The fallacy that "military voters hate Democrats" is just that. I've lived in Va Beach and the surrounding cities.... while there is a significant Republican presence, especially for an urban area (Virginia Beach is the largest city in the state), that is far more evangelical and rural migration tha...

1600s + Amsterdam = instaget before Alex finished reading the clue. That should've been a triple get. Not sure how to explain that Mayflower guess.

Re: Wednesday, January 14, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Spent a few minutes wondering if they would call Delaware southern, but I was pretty sure it was Florida anyway.

The thing about Nebraska, Kansas, Illinois, etc. -- they are already several hundred feet above sea level, no matter how flat they are... so it had to be along the coasts.
