Re: Monday, February 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Usually a safe assumption that whenever I pull a sports-related FJ, the subject is common knowledge. I guess that's not always the case.

Re: Wednesday, December 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was a tough board for me but I did manage all the DDs and FJ. Don Giovanni was in my precall list and I knew it immediately.

That said, Jennifer played an excellent game. This is a very impressive first episode.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Between the branch splitting and an A Rundler who somehow was not demoted but forfeited five times, maybe I will be promoted to A despite being on the outside looking in now. Then again, no idea why I want to be sent through the A Rundle woodchipper

Just watched this episode. Jason had a fantastic run and I can vouch that he's a great guy.

This game was also my highest TCA and Coryat ever.

56R / 1W ($47,400)
DD: 3/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: Ruminants, Chitin

Jason is a good guy and a stalwart of the trivia community. Here's hoping for a nice, productive run.

Pissed at myself that I couldn't come up with this FJ, but it looks like others struggled as well.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

This season has been uncharacteristically difficult in the second half. Many players with unusually low get rates.

Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

The worst thing about the article is the insinuation that assholes can't love their families so James might not be an asshole. Trump loves his family too. Most exploitative, bullying sociopaths do. Your capacity to compare everyone you dislike to Trump never ceases to impress me. Also, protip: gett...

Re: Thursday, April 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I know nothing about these endless superhero franchises. They border on worthless knowledge.

Another amazing and impressive game by James today. We live in a world now where $74k feels like a letdown.

Are you reading the same stats I am? He's only beating Ken by large margins in things that are wagers or directly caused by wagers. There's nothing "only" (which is to suggest negligible or irrelevant) about outscoring Ken Jennings by a magnitude of 1.8, nearly double over the course of seven games...

Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Amazing player, the best I've ever seen. Just a casual $89k. It seemed almost pedestrian. Really? The best? I haven't analyzed the Coryats or anything, but just from watching my impression is his depth of knowledge isn't on the same tier as Ken's and Brad's. Yes, I would say so far he is tracking t...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 11, 2019

This test I took for real. 44/45. Missed: 1) The Scarlet Letter -- highly embarrassing miss but I've never read it, answered Little Women instead 5) quilting -- hopefully they accept "quiltmaking" for this 9) Ancient Mariner -- another stupid literature miss, typed Kubla Khan 19) Lemonade -- no idea...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I disagree. I think that Monitor and Merrimack is a true WECIB, whereas, as Laura demonstrated, there were at least plausible other responses for the conch clue. It seems upthread that I am outnumbered. I could come up with conch but made the same mistake as James on the Bill of Rights clue and als...

Good grief. James gets an absolute cupcake for a DD that wouldn't be out of place in a Teen Tournament "Bull Run' while Laura gets some ridiculous DD about some sea creature. :roll:
Conch is several degrees easier than Monitor and Merrimack.

Side note: FJs way too easy recently.
