Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

... except a cube ALWAYS has 8 faces so that seemed odd. But a diamond lattice is comprised of two interspersed cubic lattices. Oh, goody - I got here first!! Don't you hate when you crap out with a double-eight :lol: Just kidding, but I think you mean 8 vertices. Easy mistake to make just typing o...

I guessed Lewis Carroll for FJ. Being dead I guess it wouldn’t have been him in 1926.

Archive playthrough: Coryat $35,200 (41R, 0W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: LT $7600, a bit shy of 4th-podium victory Yowzers, tough DJ round. Ended up empty-handed in "C"s of diamonds. Almost negged with "cubic" on the $1200 clue, except a cube ALWAYS has 8 faces so that seemed odd. But a diamond lattice is ...

Re: Wednesday, January 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I gotta say, KJ is killing it. He's loose and he's having fun in a way that doesn't unduly impede the progress of the game. Agreed. Watching the episodes he's hosting, it feels like I'm watching Jeopardy!... and not the Ken Jennings Show or some other quiz show. He's exceeding my expectations for s...

Re: 2021 Current Events Study GUIDE. Study GUIDE.

22-year-old poet Amanda Gorman reads "The Hill We Climb" at Biden's inauguration.

Given the impressive poetry and the amount of buzz it has generated, I'm expecting her name and/or the name of the poem to show up in a clue before long.

Archive playthrough: Coryat $39,200 (47R, 1W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: Typically pretty good with mythology but it gave me trouble this time, only got the top and bottom clues. Whoopsie: aquifer for aqueduct. Clammed on blunderbuss because howitzer popped into my head and I knew it was wrong. FJ: WECIB?

Coryat $41,600 (49R, 2W) DD 2/3 FJ :mrgreen: No idea on DD1. Wouldn't have wagered more than $100 on a fashion DD though, so no harm, no foul. Negged with omega for beta... my brain went "Greek letter + last = ??". Forehead slap upon reveal. Like Bamaman, for FJ, had to guess between Motel 6 and Sup...

My wife is from Dartmouth, NS so I wasn't missing this one! Good clue though, I can see the path to a solve if you're not married to someone from there.

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If having movie buff Ken Jennings as host means we get one FJ a week that's tangentially related to the movies, I'm even more on board with naming him permanent host. Unlike last week's clue though, I got this one, and I got it instantly. I was on the Ken train and you just convinced me to jump off...

Examples of famous bridges include the PONT-Neuf in Paris and the PONTE Vecchio in Florence. In fact, the word "pontiff" means "bridge maker" (builds bridges between humans and G...

Anyone else find "Chernobyl" vastly overvalued in HISTOIRC TV? Ukraine + 1986 is an easy Pavlov for the explosion. I suppose you had to be sure that the city was the name of the mini-series, and it wasn't named "Chernobyl Disaster" or something like that. Maybe I'm biased because I watched the mini...

First a FJ, now a DD that requires knowledge about The Crown . I guess I know where I'm putting some extra effort... Never seen The Crown and got both, although the one today was a bit of a guess. Never seen the movie in today’s FJ but breakfast foods at a fancy NYC store leaves no other options. I...

As noted by MarkBarrett in the study guide thread: Phil Spector, murderer who also did some music production work, at age 81.
Everything I've read says Phil Spector died of natural causes. Are you certain about the COVID connection?
COVID is a natural cause.
