Ooh, I think that one gave me my first 90+ percentile rank.

Actually only six of the twelve Pac-12 schools have men's swimming. I wouldn't expect anyone to know that, however anyone who's watched the Olympics knows there are approximately one million events in swimming, so "...the individual title" doesn't make sense in the context of swimming. :D

Wrestling is another sport that has taken a huge hit in the past 30 years due to schools trying to reach gender-equity in their sports programs. Something like 170 college wrestling programs have been cut. Other non-revenue men's sports have taken hits, too, but I think wrestling has been decimated the worst.

I finished in the 13th percentile (thanks in part by confusing Shackleton with Scott, which is a mortal trivia sin). Suffice it to say I had the cold hand Wednesday night.

I didn't confuse him with Scott, but I did confuse him with Lenin. :oops: Not my best guess.

I think Shackleton had a problem or two staying in his boat.

I was watching an old NCIS over the weekend, and at the end, Gibbs was shown at home reading the book Endurance by Alfred Lansing, which I had read a few months ago.

A most excellent read, of which I have a tattered and dog-eared copy of sorts. Ernest DID stay in his boat for an awful long time... overwintered but when the ice instead of melting just began to move and ate HMS Endurance, he had to walk out. Cockleshells it was and his garden didn't grow on a stony beach on windswept Elephant Isle. Incredible tale of "endurance' especially the end where he went off into uncharted wilderness on South Georgia to find help, climbed an impassable mountain and literally fell off the other side, landing in the Norwegian whaling outpost on S. Georgia. Died penniless and largely forgotten. Gotta love this guy, should be a movie IMHO. :idea: :!:

I playtested this one. The smith was fine with me knowing nothing about the show, but I appreciated the good writing and it looks like it would be fun to actually play.

There have been a couple of 1DSes I didn't enter, but I'm happy with my performance in the ones I did play.

Like most of the 1-D games that dig so deep into the weeds I did look at this one and NHO any reference in 12 clues nor were half even comprehensible to me.
So, now that the scores are out, even Qs2 and 4 didn't give you enough to work with?

I'm in Group 52 in Social Science, with two TOCers... including Rex Kramer's opponent in the 2006 semifinal. Interestingly, their other opponent in that game had been defeated by the smith in regular play.

In 59 in extracts, 102 in portraits, and 117 in social sciences. PahkJ is in my extracts group. Don't recognize any other boardies or TOCers, but I may be missing someone. Browsing the archive I think I see at least a couple one-day champs in each group.

They didn't for me. I'm not sure I would have gotten a single correct answer on that one day.

I looked in on this out of curiosity. Knowing nothing about the show, I got questions 4, 7, and 11.
