Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I knew it had to be a recent prez and, as above, I ruled out Bush and Johnson since it looked like a single name. Clinton seemed obvious & as I went backwards I knew it wouldn’t be any of the last ten.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Have any other people gone from Thousandaire to the main game? That was weird to see him again.

Grrr! Bruegel crosses my mind but I went with Van Eyck. I was so sure it was vegemite.

Re: Tuesday, March 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I love seeing Brad beat Ken again!!! And it’s great to see how awesome Larissa is again. Slightly tougher board today but simple FJ. At pub trivia tonight we had a question about the longevity of some tv shows & I mentioned J at 35. To be honest, I knew the answer from the numbered amendments. Would...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I literally answered the clue of Young British Artists based on the last sentence of the clue. I’d never heard the term but I knew Cornelia Parker did that installation with Tilda Swindon & I think she was young when she did it. This is my first time in an A Rundle.

Re: Friday, March 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Welp, that was BRUTAL to watch. The questions over the course of this tourney don’t seem harder than everyday play & FJ was incredibly easy. I hope the Final is a marked improvement. I’m sorry to see Roger & Alex go but I do like Pam’s game. She knows stuff I don’t know.

Re: Thursday, February 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I missed what the category was beforehand but I’d have bet it all. I was just reading an article about Djibouti yesterday so that didn’t hurt since it included a map with Somalia on it. I didn’t read the FJ clue very carefully (I was playing HQ while watching!) so I missed the part about “7 letters”...

Re: for Survivor talk

Once again, they vote off the old person. I like quite a few of the contestants so far & I was rooting for Reem to stay. I hope none of the four returnees wins this season. I don’t mind seasons of all returnees but it seems unfair to mix them with rubes.

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Elevated clue difficulty? Outside of that Triple Rhyme Time category I thought it was a mundane game. I’m rooting for Brad & Larissa the most. I just wish they had some other people from the past up there instead of some of the folks up there.

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

In re the A380, most jets are below 300,000 gross takeoff weight. The B747, DC-10 etc were over that which made them “heavy.” The A380 weighed so much that it was referred to as “super” and ATC had to provide extra spacing behind it. You would NOT want to be in a C210 behind DLH25 Super! I’ve flown ...

The only tough one for me was Taming of the Shrew. My sister’s middle name is Dolores so that helped. First time in a while that I’ve gotten all 8!

Yes, let's just take Rand Paul's assertions about his political priorities at face value. The question referred to his duties as a Senate Committee Chairman. Anyway, a really easy game. Will was crushing his buzzer. I went to previously.tv after MB linked their page and those people are real asshol...

JLo starred in some tv & movies in the 90’s but her first music wasn’t released until 1999. I grew up on Long Island & returned there so I knew it was Mariah Crazy. I worked with someone who knew her in high school. I was on a long drive several months ago & Sirius had some odd show devoted to her c...

I’m going on a Lindblad expedition to Svalbard soon so I was pretty pumped to see those clues. Easy FJ; nice game to watch.

Easy FJ. President Reagan ran on that slogan. Lots of LT. I didn’t think Kevin would win a second game but I was rooting for him. I’m not hugely knowledgeable about the Bible but as far as Micah, WECIB?

I snickered when the last answer revealed in Senators With Stamina was Ted Kennedy & the contestant then chose Hitting The Sauce. The rock star surprised me with his win. I thought Andrew would be around for a long time.

14-6-5. I missed the first day and promptly signed up to receive texts. I had a couple of days where everything went my way and it helped that I’ve traveled a bit. I hate to sound like TPH but I had a devil of a time with the last day’s question about iambic & I still can’t recall the answer. Some t...

Re: for Survivor talk

Great to see this thread! I’m glad Nick won since Mike showed himself to be such an asshole in the TC with Alison. Angie had no chance to win. I’m not looking forward to a season with 4 vets. I’d rather see all vets or all new people. I’m not sure why they bother with the reunion anymore. I’d rather...

I bet if the Jack London DD said “Seattle” Brian would’ve gotten it. I was rooting for the champ anyway so I was relieved when he missed it. I don’t usually watch the game after the winner is revealed but I did tonight & the woman seemed odd. She didn’t shake the winner’s band & seemed dismissive of...
