Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I guessed chalk for the art question. I had no idea, but thought that might fit the "Street Story ___" part. What art medium might you use to create a street story? Same reasoning here. Pretty lost on devanagari. System, eh? How about "card counting"!?!? At first I thought it was a form of yoga. Th...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

How many got the quilt question here? I was nervous assigning defense. I knew it because I live in Alabama and have heard about the quilting ladies. I just didn’t know if it was widely known or if it could be puzzled out. It seemed to play hard, though not as hard as Joker’s Wild. NHOI. I missed ve...

Harrumph.

As a fan of the Cleveland Indians, I know our best players are usually known as "Mr. February." :roll:

Re: FJs for the 2/22/21 week

Even on my 5/5 weeks, Mark usually trips me up on one of the extras. Not this week, though. Nice try, Mark!

And there should have been a box, "I'm pretty sure I've never seen any of Michael Colton's shows". Would have made me 9/9.

Four countries in Africa have populations greater than 100 million. And Ethiopia is nowhere close to Nigeria in population. (Lagos is a port, people. It ain't landlocked.)

Nigeria 206,139,589
Ethiopia 109,224,414
Democratic Republic of the Congo 102,561,403
Egypt 101,334,404

But I think Avon is iconic for their multi-level-marketing scheme/scam as well as their doorbell meme (Avon calling) and once popular collectible containers.
Is Avon MLM? I thought they were simply door-to-door, and that isn't necessarily an MLM like Amway.

Has anyone else noticed that Mike does the interviews without holding the cards? I am impressed by that ... he has to remember last names, home towns, and what the story is.

Not an instaget, but it fell into place pretty quickly.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I thought the league-wide get rates were a spreadsheet error or something. In my rundle, they looked a lot more realistic. Does anybody else think the wording of the Muslim holiday question made it more difficult. If it had said 'As it relates to its central figure,' instead of the plural, I would'...

Re: Tuesday, February 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS) by Archivists

Movie and sequel had me thinking Godfather and Coppola, but writing partner made me sure it must be Mike Nichols instead. The only problem was that I couldn't pull Nichols' name, so I went with Coppola. Lucky me! "Dinosaur" for the T. Rex clue? I didn't see anything in that clue that said you had to...

Obviously one show isn't a large enough sample, but ... IMHO, Mike doesn't seem to have the proper level of gravitas for the role. It was a bit too much Price is Right-y for me. Sam had a post where he said the taping had a lot more stops and starts than usual. So apparently the editing made it seem...

OK, that's enough now. I reserve the right to delete anything after this post on Rep. Omar and the general topic. Yes, this is the right correct thread for it, but let's keep this civil.
