Seattle having a fire and an underground was news to me. Could be any city in Seattle, even in the top box.
Ok now I know you’re trolling us as there is precisely one city in Seattle and impossible to not know what the name of the city in Seattle is.

Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

I’m honestly not sure how to answer. My only audition so far was Kansas City, which was a 14 hour drive (not counting the hour and a half to my sister’s the day before). But it was also the closest to me. So is that “the closest location” or “a distant one”? (This time I chose Portland, definitely a...

When i see the word "Dahomey" i sing "Namibia", then finish the Animaniacs Nations of the World song.
Did you get a chance to see Animaniacs Live in Arlington a few months back? It was a ton of fun.
That was a thing? No way! I would have!

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I still managed a top 10% finish in the Canada-U.S. Border one-day, but shot myself in the foot somewhat by going with Winnipeg for Q2 (thinking Vancouver Island would have been excluded), and then, consequently, going for Saskatchewan on Q5 figuring there wouldn't be a second Manitoba question. Tu...

And since I get to answer every question, I also divide my coryat by 3 to get a rough idea of how well I did compared to the actual players - figuring that only being able to win the buzzer race 1/3 of the time is a good enough approximation for now. That’s a good idea, though I don’t think I’ll of...

This past March 2 , the largest FJ wager was $850. Among Archived games, the lowest total amount wagered in a three-perso...

That's all a Zip code is afaik. My point is that ZIP code is a US term for a postal code. ZIP is actually an acronym (that hardly ...

This is either illegal (some of this year's nominees are not officially available for streaming) or costs more money than, I would guess, TPH is willing to pay (e.g., $14.99 a month for HBO GO). Is there a single 2017 or 2018 Best Picture nominee that's not available either to stream on one of the ...

I'm amazed no one has mentioned it, but "The Shah of Iran" being accepted instead of "Mohammed Reza Shah/Pahlavi" is one of the most ridiculous decisions I have seen on the show in a long time. That's certainly how he was known, then and now. There's absolutely nothing wrong with accepting it. I ag...
