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

Post by opusthepenguin » Mon Nov 11, 2019 10:07 pm

Many thanks to Mark Barrett for getting this game in the archive so speedily. This poll might not have happened without his dedication. Ten (count 'em) TEN triple stumpers, a couple of missed DDs, and four negs that I decided to throw in.

Well, I threw in three of them in the poll. If I'd thrown in the fourth, there'd be no room for the box of shame. (Polls are limited to 16 questions.)

So here's the final neg for the sake of completeness:

$1200 EXPRESSIONS & IDIOMS: Let's act aggressively on an issue & "play" this, another word for the national pastime
CORRECT RESPONSES
Show
$1000 FLAGS: Malaysia
$1000 GOVERNMENT & POLITICS: certiorari
$1000 WHAT'S HER SPORT?: basketball
$600 WHAT'S HER SPORT?: soccer
$400 WHAT'S HER SPORT?: hockey
$200 WORDS THAT USE ALL 5 VOWELS: ostentatious
$1200 MATH GUYS: Blaise Pascal
$2000 NON COMPOSE MENTIS: Bedřich Smetana
$1600 A GENERIC TITLE: The King of Comedy
$800 A TRUE STORY: Caddyshack
DD1 in $600 FLAGS spot (Kyle wagered $1800): Arkansas (Kyle guessed West Virginia)
DD2 in $1600 MATH GUYS spot (Dhruv wagered $2000): John Nash (Dhruv guessed Friedman)
NOT A TS $1000 THE KING JAMES BIBLE SAYETH...: Amen (Emma negged with "witness", Kyle got it on the rebound)
NOT A TS $800 THE KING JAMES BIBLE SAYETH...: Proverbs (Dhruv negged with Psalms, Kyle got it on the rebound)
NOT A TS $800 REAL NAMES ON THE MARQUIS: the Louvre (Dhruv guessed Versailles, Kyle got it on the rebound)
NOT A TS $1200 EXPRESSIONS & IDIOMS: hardball (Kyle tried "ball" and "baseball", Emma got it on the rebound)

$5,200 to the good in trash less $2000 lost guessing Chopin. Got the missed DDs.

The De Niro film got a lot of recent mentions because some of Joker reminded people of it.

Blurted Psalms and last word of Revelation is standard trivia with no way the cutesy hint was going to distract me. At the church I attend there is a time to light candles and share prayer concerns. One regular congregation member always ends her time with, "Can I get an amen?"

James and Steven were probably muttering that the sports category was not in their semis.

$3800 + both DDs + $1800 on the rebound I guess?

Apparently we can't correct our responses cause I didn't check two boxes. I should've also checked Hockey and Arkansas.
Fixed!

Basketball and Soccer would've been DD gets but didn't feel confident pulling the trigger.

Ostentatious, Pascal, Smetana, and Caddyshack were my Lach trash gets; I also got both missed DDs (and the third one, too!) and all four negs. I clammed on hockey.

Basketball, soccer, ostentatious, Pascal, Caddyshack*. I could not come up with Smetana; after pausing for a minute I said Berlioz but immediately knew that wasn't right and at that point I gave up.
Got both Arkansas and Nash.
Had both Amen and Proverbs, but had the Versailles neg. Also got hardball.

* I initially said Groundhog Day but realized my error while Kyle was trying to come up with the answer. I'm counting it.
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?

$4,600, sort of, including a DD and Amen.

If you had a computer in your school in the 80s, you at least heard OF all those older languages - FORTRAN, PASCAL, C, C+, BASIC. We played around with BASIC and LOGO - I still think of programs as having line numbers like when using BASIC on my old Apple //c, and I remember drawing with the on-screen LOGO turtle.

Gopher to "Caddyshack" seemed fairly Pavlovian to me, but I could tell that Kyle -KNEW- the answer. Saw the movie once, and I liked it, but I definitely can't quote it endlessly - I just know the gopher is on the poster (or VHS cover, or DVD cover, or On Demand selection graphic). I'm sure Kyle was dying to say "that golf movie with Bill Murray", but didn't want a rebound.

I gave myself "John Nash", but admittedly, I did the exact same thing Kyle did. Yeah, I cheated. I had the title, I had the actor, I even had the first name, and I had "game theory". If I'd only remembered "Nash equilibrium" in J! time.

I ignored the "can I get one?" part of the clue for "Amen". Just went straight to the last word of the Bible.

I love hockey, and it's sad that women's hockey doesn't get the coverage that it should. Unfortunately, NHO the Lamoureux sisters - Hillary Knight or Denna Laing are the first two that come to my mind.

Negged on flag with Indonesia, whose flag consists solely of a red and a white stripe
Would have to give my law degree back if I didn't know certiorari

Clammed on soccer
Forgot that the category wasn't exclusively about women's collegiate sports, so I clammed on the hockey players
Got ostentatious just in time to ring in before Alex called time
Got Pascal
Would have gone Dvorak on a DD, but no way was I going to ring in
No clue on the de Niro/Lewis movie
Got Caddyshack
Got Arkansas
Got Nash
Ran the Bible category
Negged with Versailles
Got hardball

$4200 in LT - $2200 in negs + correct responses on the two missed DDs and FJ!
Sprinkles are for winners.

$5600 in LT, but missed the diamond DD and 4 negs worth $2800 in there. Casting no stones here, as the King James Bible might say.

Dhruv kept going to the math category, but it wasn't kind to him.

Thanks for this. Smetana, the subject of the hardest clue according to this poll, isn't totally obscure, with dozens of Archive name-drops, but I thought this clue was pretty hard unless you happened to know that particular work, or the tidbit about his death in an insane asylum.

John Nash is currently polling the highest? Wouldn't have expected that. I remembered the movie, but couldn't pull the subject's name.

I knew from the river that the composer had to be Czech, but I said Dvorak

We played around with BASIC and LOGO - I still think of programs as having line numbers like when using BASIC on my old Apple //c, and I remember drawing with the on-screen LOGO turtle.
There wasn't room in this poll for "I have programmed in Pascal" or I'd be checking that box. I first learned (self-taught) BASIC with line numbers and couldn't imagine how one could get along without them. Then I got an implementation of structured BASIC (i.e. without line numbers) and took to it in seconds. It was immediately obvious that line numbers were a crutch and a distraction and a waste of valuable time. I couldn't imagine going back to them and to the ridiculous RENUM command for when you ran out of space because the next numbered line was only 10 away and you wanted to insert 11 lines. The alternative, of course was to insert a GOTO 5000, type all the lines you want and then type GOTO [whatever line number came after the one with GOTO 5000] and soldier on. What a mess. What a pain. Good riddance.
