Fourth Podium Poll for 11/7/2019 - Thursday TOC (SPOILERS)

Post by opusthepenguin » Thu Nov 07, 2019 9:07 pm

At this point I may as well finish out the tournament with these fourth podium polls. They're enjoyable even when you can't win from that hypothetical platform. I thought about extracting the video for the bugle calls so everyone could hear them and refresh their memory. Then I went and lay down until the feeling passed. I mean THREE of the six triple stumpers were in that category.

-1200 for me only getting $400 in Bugle and negging on the $800 (think I said retreat) as well as taking a swing with Myrtle Beach for another $800 blown.

I got Mail Call, Charge, and Crowley for $3400. But I have to deduct $800 because I said Herman's Head :lol:, leaving me with $2600.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

$1200 for me with Hilton Head and Charge. I knew Myrtle Beach wasn't an island, so that neg didn't tempt me. I have to think that the player who knew hallux* yesterday was in the audience today saying "calcaneus" under his breath. I suspect that a professional sports gambler would also know Hilton Head pretty readily. But for the most part this crew seem like the sort of players who would be able to make James work for his money rather than handing it to him. Sad that it's already over for Fred WillardEric.

---------------
* My spellchecker suggests that hallux is misspelled and that I really mean phallus. No, spellchecker. No I do not.

I completely butchered the pronunciation of calcaneus to the point where I had to look up in the commercial break how it was actually spelled.

Watched way too many of those stupid occult shows on History Channel to not get Crowley. Or the Ozzy song. Or Supernatural.

$5200. I've been to Hilton Head. Calcaneus - I took an anatomy class in college. Got Aleister Crowley courtesy of Ozzy Osbourne.

The rest of my DJ! performance was pretty hideous, though.

$1200 for Charge and Cease Fire. The latter was an educated guess based on the clue rather than knowing the call.

If it's not already, "South Carolina island" probably needs to be a pavlov to Hilton Head - at least for me. I'm sure I've seen that one multiple times on J! and I miss it every time.

Better make that South Carolina island RESORT = Hilton Head. South Carolina island + Marines = Parris, and that comes up from time to time. And South Carolina island + opera = Porgy and Bess.

EDIT: Admittedly the clue in this game didn't mention the word "resort". But if you can't figure out which pavlov corresponds to "more than 20 championship golf courses", maybe you should give up on Jeopardy! and try Wheel instead.
What? What'd I say?

Ran bugle calls, have visited Hilton Head, and my former A&P students would have been either shocked or gleeful had I missed calcaneus. However, I do have to admit that the only Crowley I've ever heard of was on Downton Abbey.

Do they use bugle calls in the AF? In the Navy, the only ones we ever heard were Taps and Reveille.

Pretty much the same in USAF. Taps at retreat most of the time, sometimes (not often) Reveille in the morning when deployed. Also USAF uses "To the Color" frequently as the flag goes up in the morning an hour or so after Reveille -- and To the Color would have been a great inclusion in the category as many people are familiar with it without knowing the name (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EsUvNz_i60).

Got "Charge" from hearing it everywhere all my life (although in the movie Gettysburg when Chamberlain orders a charge the bugler plays a melody I'd not heard elsewhere). First Call was very recognizable as "To the Post" at racetracks. Cease Fire and Mail Call came from the TOM in the clues.

Nothing for me this game. Crowley was the only one I had a chance on; maybe if I hadn't been exhausted after a nearly sleepless night and busy day. (Although maybe if I was better rested I could have come up with a name for a bugle call or two, but Reveille and Taps were the only calls I previously knew by name.)

The Bugle call category reminded me of that Flintstones episode where Betty and Wilma go on a spending spree, “dun dun dun dun dun... chaaaaarge it!”
