Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

A titanic defensive struggle was had between BarrettM and I yesterday. I pulled out a 7(3) - 3(1) victory. Guessed right on Blue, potato, and Guns, knowing none of them for certain. Went with blue because it was art, I thought of Picasso's blue period, and I wanted to answer something before I forgo...

Ursula von der Leyen? Not in a million years
Same here, but my opponent was from Denmark, so that was an easy 0 to give. He got it, and we tied with 7(5)s.

I was thinking it was either current events or literature, as I could see that sentence written in a novel or something.

I had no idea on the film question, but I thought of Waterworld too....so I put "Romeo and Juliet 2: Waterworld." Star-crossed, ill-fated lovers and all....

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Pulled all 6 yesterday. Today I play my LL nemesis, WollnerJ. We've played 7 times, and I have yet to beat her, having earned 5 losses and 2 ties. I have 2 chances to break the streak this season. Good luck she 9(6)-7(5)ed me yesterday. I'm 3-6-4 against her. I referred Jackie sometime back in the ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Tied the estimable BarrettM yesterday, 5(4) - 5(4). Was sure he'd get the TV question, of course, but gave him 1 because I figured West Side Story was easier with the hockey angle as well. Looks like I was right, as he missed it. I missed the Mare question too (went with Hastings, because SE England...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Revolution ML was crazy tough. I ended with 19 TCA. Last day for Puzzle League, which I am thoroughly enjoying. In 1st (which probably helps my enjoyment), and players 2 & 3 are playing each other, but are both only a point behind me and each has a better MPD than me. If I win or tie, I'm in the cha...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Anyone else playing the 2 current MLs? Man the revolution one is hard/obscure with 3 questions under 5% get rate and an overall get rate in the 20% range. I understand making things hard but this has been a bit crazy. And I think I'm in the worst group ever on ML for the puzzle one. Collectively my...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I completely lucked into Wendy Williams. Don't think I've ever heard of her, just thought "Debut albums are often named after the singer. Those could be initials. What's a generic last name that starts with W?" Threw down Williams and was shocked to get it right. Then on Q6, didn't even think of dru...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

ouachiouat got five in only missing the opera and unfortunately for him, I knew got all 6 to be able laugh off facing a 7(5). We each gave each other 3 for Venice. Axis of Evil played way easier than Little Rascals/Our Gang though I'm a little insulted to have received a 1 for the TV instead of a z...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Thanks to the Current Events thread for Driver's License. Earned a 6(5) for the win. Missed the Banjo question....by answering "Banjo Kazooie" as a joke. I guess too much info?

Re: Monday, February 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've read the book referenced in FJ twice, and it's one of my favorites. I wasn't sure on the year it was published, so it was more of an educated guess based on 2 women murdered, but knew the city it took place in instantly.

AAHC group 134. Pretty sure I see a boardie and very familiar trivia name on MD6. Looking forward to learning in this one!

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I'm still hoping for Mo Rocca to get a shot. I think he'd do a great job, and already does the Geography Bee, right? Which means he has experience following in Alex's footprints (albeit a few years after Alex stopped hosting it).

Maybe more for LL, but Helen Viola Jackson, the last known widow of a Civil War soldier, has passed away at the age of 101. He offered to marry her when he was 93 and she was 17 so she could receive his pension, she accepted, and then never took the pension after he died....and also kept the marriag...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

I knew Beijing was 'northern capital' and Nanjing was 'southern capital', so must be central (?), says I, but wait, in relation to other tribes; well, they're on the inside of a nice long wall: answer, behind the wall. Geez. Tokyo is dongjing (Eastern capital), and Xi'An's former name was Xijing (W...
