Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

My season was very much like teapot’s. High up in the Maso standings, better than normal DE, but finished 4th. Congrats to bomtr and HBomb for finishing in top 3!

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I thought "flying fox" had a fighting chance. Aren't big ears what allowed Dumbo to fly? I wasn't going to get fennec, which, come to think, I was also introduced to via Scrabble. I wasted more time than I'd realized with that game. There is a creature known as a flying fox, but it’s a very large s...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I dunno; this meme business seems to have gotten out of control. I guess Kyrgyzstan could vie for a BWA if the question were something like name a small American state, but otherwise ... meh. I'm proud of how deeply I had to reach to come up with Lumumba. I couldn't get Kabila or Mobutu out of head...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I thought about Estonia but went with Turkmenistan. In retrospect I wish I’d gone for a BWA attempt of Kyrgyzstan. This went over my head. Explanation please Since I answered Kyrgyzstan (and it's relatively close to having been the right answer), I'm curious about this. It certainly wasn't meant by...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Pretty much the same here, except I knew FIFA. Somehow ended up with a 6(4)-4(4) win with educated guesses on Christie and Osbourne (occultist was my in, then I ended up remembering Mr. Crowley song) and a complete WAG on House for a word that would fit with each of the options. Peter principle jum...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I posted this on the LL board, but am I supposed to know what sodium carbonate is? I mean, I can do the chemistry but washing soda means absolutely nothing to me. Looking it up after the fact, I guess they made glass out of it? I spent so much time wondering if I should put sodium bicarbonate, bica...

Re: Thursday, September 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My summer in Mexico in ‘69 pays dividends: I made a study of the three great Mexican muralists: Orozco, Siquieros and Rivera. Of the three, Siquieros was my favorite. Regardless, Instaget of instagets tonight.

Hoo boy! This was quite the spectacle. At the start I found Kelly’s antics amusing but as the game wore on she seemed more like a poker player on tilt. There was so much Lach trash that I lost count. Opus, are you going to do another Fourth Podium poll or is it too much of a foregone conclusion. KY ...

One day I'll stop mixing up cation and anion...yesterday was not that day.
The way I remember it is that bodybuilders use ANabolic steroids to get bigger, so ANions get an extra electron.
There’s also the relationship to cathode and anode in electronics, though that may not help everyone.

How is it that I've heard the word "pantheon" several times, yet never grasped that there actually was a singular thing just called the Pantheon?
Well, there’s a Pantheon in Paris, too, so I’m not sure that singular is quite the right term... :mrgreen:

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

One of the CBS affiliates I access is Cleveland, MS and they have a Delta logo, so I got that music Q through a TV path. In my group I was was 1 of 2 with a 9(6) and fortunately we did not play each other. Fugard = SA at 26%? Watch J! it helps. I mentioned to one of my pub trivia pals (and fellow L...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

For the second time this season, A Continental has an all-boardie leaderboard today: Bomtr, Reddpen and I (not coincidentally, my LLama-daddy, LLama-granddaddy and I, one big dysfunctional family) sit atop the standings. I don’t expect it to last very long, but it’s a cool sight while it lasts.

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I expected a much higher get rate on Q1 yesterday (anchor). I can see putting "pundit," which was the MCWA at 14%, but that plus anchor at 42% gives 56%. I wonder what the other 44% came up with? This one seemed like a WECIB? type question to me. I debated between pundit and correspondent, and went...

It looks like the N border of OR is labeled Hood River but that is pretty clearly the Columbia River.

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

FTR, I went 8-10-7-3 with only a few regrets. I totally missed the significance of the 85 in N95 in round 1, overlooked Tony Dungy for Dan Reeves (who did win as a player but never as a head coach despite 11 appearances) and had a brain cramp with St Vincent and Miquelon (ironic in light of yesterda...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Does anyone have confirmation of taping happening, or information on when the new season starts? It's hearsay, but a friend and former contestant posted on Facebook on August 1 that they had spoken to a real estate agent who recognized their name ("Is this _____ of Jeopardy! fame?"), and as it turn...

I tried for a BWA for the Netflix film stars who had also been in The Chase et al: LabbettM and HegertyA.
I joked with my pub trivia pals that I got 5.5 right yesterday: could pull Fonda from Electric Horseman but couldn’t get Redford.
