Re: Tuesday, May 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The u is definitely voiced, but I'm sure many Americans don't pronounce it that way. I would accept "Vitton" because there's precedent in English for consonant-u-i leaving a silent u. (Although I think that only works with g-u-i , come to think of it...Both guise and guitar !) I wonder if they'd ru...

It's only Tuesday so I'll see how the week goes before promising to poll something that will go over 85%. It's a top box clue as the movie is that well known whether someone has seen it or not. The cast beyond John Candy has other people of varying degrees of fame, but it's not important for the cl...

I hate these types of FJs where you're supposed to get to the correct answer based on some quote that gives someone's opinion or analysis of something. Me too. If I'd known Robert Frost and Whitman weren't contemporaries, I would have grudgingly guessed the correct answer, but I didn't, and I didn'...

Re: HQ Trivia

As I inspired boson (and that's so sweet!

I couldn't pull "Poe" at the time--I was thinking Lovecraft, who was in the wrong century.
Good, I'm not the only one.

In fact, I had Poe, and thought Lovecraft was a better guess. :(

I have worked as a dealer in a Washington state cardroom for almost ten years. As far as I'm concerned, a croupier is anyone who is in charge of maintaining a gaming table, be it cards, roulette, or dice. I myself have only ever dealt cards. That doesn't match my own experiences. In poker and black...

Another one who thought the FJ was horribly written. I thought they wanted two different designations. I had the equator for the first one, so I ended up writing "What is 0 degrees latitude & longitude"?. Honestly, if they just had one item, I would've had it. I had the same thought and wrote down ...

One place claiming to be the equator doesn’t make sense to me. I said the source of the Nile. I have a friend who was a missionary in Uganda. She posted a picture of her on Facebook with her and an Ugandan gentleman standing on the equator. There was this structure of a circle with a line through t...

The world’s oldest person, Nabi Tajimi, has died in Japan at 117. She was the last known person born in the 19th century. At long last all the website developers can drop the 19th century in the scroll box where you put in your birthdate! And I feel bad when I have to scroll down 3-4 times to input...

Wasn’t sure if Sark had enough people do I didn’t choose it. I checked after And Wikipedia says alternately “about 500” and “492” (which seems like an estimate in the source. What’s your source that shows it definitively has more than 500 people?
