Re: TD 445 - Prime Time [Q1-Q5 revealed]

Oop. I misread Q3. I thought it had to be both. I wondered why most of the questions had lots of possible answers and that one only had a few.

I don't need Google to point out my errors!

I typed in "is austin tx farther south than tallahassee fl" and it replied with "Did you mean: is austin tx further south than tallahassee fl"

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

When I clicked on the Season 36 link, Google Translate asked me if I wanted to translate it. It assumed it was Norwegian. I couldn't figure out what triggered it.

Oops...I didn't indicate that I found this funny and just wanted to share.

Re: THE "J" EFFECT $1000 clue 12/5/19 [SPOILERS]

I am from the midwest, but in the early 80s I lived near Boston for a few years. I was often ridiculed for not understanding the local lingo, so I stopped asking questions in real time and would ask my coworkers for clarification later. When I was at a mall, I ordered an ice cream cone, and the woma...

The Amtrak conductors have always said Dowagiac as "duh-WAH-jack". Johnny had "DOW-a-jack". I grew up 30 miles from there and yes, it's 'Duh-WAH-giac'. Johnny butchered it so bad, I thought it was just some town I never heard of. We'll see if he gets it right tomorrow and I hope Jennifer doesn't ge...

Re: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So am I the only one who doesn't think of "deal" as a one-syllable word? you think it has more than one syllable? "Dee-yul". Then again I've always parsed "world" and "field" as two-syllable words too. I'm not a language expert, but I'm pretty sure that the two vowels make it a dipthong, not a two-...

Re: FJs for the 11/18/19 week

During the TOC I had multiple times where I knew who they were looking for, but just couldn't pull the name. (Who's the tiger in Jungle Book and Who's the woman that sang at Lincoln Memorial, for example.) So when I said to myself "Who is Lot's wife." I just assumed it was more of the same and I don...

Re: TD 433 - LLL (Final results)

Thanks, clt013! I always enjoy your TDs. I also like the fact that during the reveal, you display the correct responses in one place.

I'm surprised that I came in 5th because I think I got 3 sheeps, although a couple may have been co-sheeps.

Clearly I should have gone with the homer pick of North Dakota on the hockey question, considering I’m an alum. But noooo, I decided fewer people would think of little old Lake Superior State.
Same here, only my alma mater is Michigan State, which also went unused.
