Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

Roughly equivalent to "congressional districts" in the United States, what is the standard term used in the United Kingdom for the 650 electoral areas through which members of the House of Commons (MPs) are elected? What made 9% come up with "riding"; would like to know what I'm not seeing with tha...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

...Phoebe Waller-Bridge also created Killing Eve , another show people hadn't heard of a few weeks ago, and an even better one (at least the first series, when Waller-Bridge was writing it). I still haven't watched that, although it's on my list. She also had a fairly minor part in one series of Br...

Re: Tuesday, December 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For some reason AT&T TV showed a rerun of Mackenzie Jones (her seventh game I think). This is confusing to me. Is there some way to watch J! on AT&T TV other than watching it on your local affiliate's channel? I have AT&T TV but I always watch it on KOMO and they showed the correct show last night.

I was just a little surprised when I saw that question had by far the lowest average defense of yesterday...

Re: Tuesday, December 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue had me think of Gertrude Ederl's swimming feat and I could not imagine that matching the mileage given. Good point. Her swim was 21 miles, if anyone was wondering. (I looked it up.) Keep in mind that's the minimum distance. The actual swim is considerably longer due to the tides and cu...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Fleabag was quite popular a year or two ago. I forget what service/network it was on, but I don't think I got it. Even so, I had heard of it. It's been about a year and a half since any new episodes have come out, and the name escaped me at the time. The pavlov that's probably easier to remember th...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

Is 98% correct for "Ice rink" the all-time record? Interestingly, there's a thread about it on the LL forum and many Canadians missed this one by putting "arena." Apparently many Canadians feel that an "arena" is synonymous with a building housing an ice rink. I lost on defense yesterday 8(5)-7(5)....

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I did think of a couple more decent examples, Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) by C+C Music Factory and Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Green Day. Both of these have clues in the J-Archive calling the song only by the parenthetical title. The correctness of these could be debatable b...

Re: Reretaken Down

I don’t even know what a full credit roll is or the interest in tracking down games that had them. There seem to be a number of credit rolls videos on YouTube, not sure why. (Hey, I have a bunch of old unarchived games, I bet people would love to see who the key grip was in 1987). Pretty bizarre, i...

NHO "atmosphereic rivers". That was a very obtuse clue IMO.
That's a term you'd probably hear a lot more if you lived near the Pacific Ocean. Meteorologists here talk about them all the time.

I knew Zimbabwe is too far south since it borders South Africa, but wasn't sure about Zambia. Ended up picking it after considering Uganda. There are just so many countries in Africa it's difficult to keep them all straight.

So would they accept "ahm?" No, but maybe "åm" would pass muster. That is a totally different syllable: https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/%C3%A5m Besides, it is pronounced differently in parts of the country that haven't undegone the om/åm merger.

I watched the show and it seemed pretty tongue in cheek on Pat's part to me.
How did my post about it seem to you? :D
Sorry, it's sort of hard to read the room here when some people are accusing KJ of "hateful" posts.

Eminem made it pretty well known that Eight Mile Road is the northern city limit of Detroit. Rochester Hills, where Madonna attended HS, is something lik...

Re: Hosting Question

I don't really follow Twitter much, but my wife does and she follows Ken. From what she's shown me he's usually pretty clever and funny. Obviously anyone's going to lay an egg once in a while in that arena. If we've learned one thing from Spinal Tap it's that there's often a fine line between clever...
