TD 327 - Pictures' Revenge! - FINAL STANDINGS!

Post by Armandillo » Sun Jan 01, 2017 7:28 pm

I'm back with more pictures! New Year's resolution: make more terrible/wonderful quizzes!

Normal rules apply:

1) Try to pick the answer that matches the least number of other people.
2) You are allowed an unlimited number of SKIPS. If you choose this option, you will receive points equal to ONE-FOURTH the total number of entrants (rounded down).
3) If you get a question WRONG, you will receive points equal to ONE-THIRD the total number of entrants (rounded down).
4) Please, please, please USE YOUR OWN BRAIN. Do not ask your friends, relatives, family, SIRI or anyone/anything for the answers!
5) There are NO SHEEP. I tried to give at least 1-4 "easy" answers for each one.
6) You do NOT have to include the letter, because there are none! :D

**AS ALWAYS, there is one TWIST. For as MANY questions as you'd like, you can attempt a BONUS. Use the bonus option at the end of the form. To obtain the BONUS. For a given question, identify EVERY SINGLE picture for that question. Success = 5 points off your score. Failure = 15 points added to your score. So choose wisely :D

*You do NOT have to be a "boardie" to play. Just enter any nickname in the form. If you choose to use your real name, I will make up a nickname for you.*

*If you want to enlarge a picture, just click on the corresponding link!*

Enter at the following link OR inbox me :D FORM

These games are for entertainment and not political shenanigans. You probably thought it was funny. I found it needlessly disrespectful.

ETA: See my post below.

Since Hammer does not play these games and there cannot be anyone else who would have a problem identifying the relevant photos I'm not going to use spoilers here.

My reaction was to the photos chosen for both Laura Bush and Barbara Bush. I saw the pictures as very unflattering especially in contrast to the radiant choices for some of the other First Ladies. From there I jumped to the conclusion that Armandillo was purposely making a political slap at two First Ladies.

With no supporting evidence I posted my reaction without thinking before clicking send. I've heard from Armandillo that no such slight was intended and I will accept that and apologize.

My submission for the game is in. Punish me by giving me a poor finish and far away from the podium.

In fairness to Armandillo, it's pretty much par for the course on the interwebs. :-D

At first I thought he was upset that I included a certain non-murderous female in the Notorious category :D

No suspense. The bonus is dependent on the responses to each question, so it's best to reveal it right away.

Point taken. There have been no bonus attempts so far.

I will do 1-2 questions revealed a day, with a break for the holiday weekend (I'm going to Vegas, baby!).

Sorry if this is too slow for some people!

Hanks was the only one I had even a 25% confidence level in. Now that I see Mirren, I realize it. One of those clickbait things you sometimes see says "You won't believe how beautiful Helen Mirren was when she was young" so I'd seen that picture but forgot it.

Who wouldn't believe that, anyway?

I thought that was Jimmy Stewart, but I talked myself out of it by saying he wouldn't have been making those hand gestures in the 1930s.

On most of these, one or two answers kept me from taking a flyer on the bonus. On this one, I didn't recognize Amanda Peet, and a couple of others, and I would've misidentified Kathy Bates as Bette Midler.

BEEF STEW - surprisingly not used!

And what am I having for dinner tonight? Beef stew. (No, not Dinty Moore. :) ) I should have just gone with the borscht like I did the previous time such dishes were shown. Instead I made the wrong guess for the meat/carrots/potato meal even though the photo was obvious that the meat was in pieces and not one whole hunk. My bad.
