Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Was anyone else given credit for "Crystal" on the Riedel question? I was happy to see Thorston's leniency for that answer. A Facebook friend's recap mentioned giving that answer and getting credit. That should be correct. Riedel makes fancy crystal wine glasses in different shapes to enhance the fl...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I feel like I could have gotten Interpreter of Maladies if I had had someone read the question to me with Trebek-like intonation on "translator in a doctor's office." I had "Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures" stuck in my head for a while, based on the doctor's office, but knew it was wrong since it...

Re: Learned League 84

That feeling when you realize that the song that you thought was "Angel" - an abstract name applied to a woman, is actually "Angie" a common woman's name. <sigh> Serves me right for not actually looking at the song lists of my dad's various compilation tapes and records.

Re: Learned League 84

I managed to get a 9(6) yesterday with a couple good guesses on Crossroads (without Brittany Spears) and Ford. Still in last place and still winless.

Re: Learned League 84

A hint steered me wrong on the Friday set. Going through literally all the state capitals, I had Trenton, Atlanta, Little Rock, and Jackson as the likeliest to have a high percentage of black population. Left with just the raw question and the #2 and #3 cities provided, I would have gone Jackson, s...

I must be setting a LL record for ineptitude this season. A personal record-setting 7th straight loss (dating back to last season) and a 2(3)-8(4) loss on MD6.
I am currently am having a winless season and looking forward to a nice time in B Magnolia next season.

Re: Learned League 84

Taiga D, Div 2, after promotion from E. Does Cyndi update the roster every new season? I think I don't need to do anything to be current. Yup, and I did post it a couple days ago on the first page of this discussion thread. :-) However, it is an excel spreadsheet and I do vlookups from my database ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

A momentous day in the Pruss-Knobel household: cmp146 and I play each other in both the public Magnolia A and private JBoard rundles. In A Mag this match might actually mean something: we are both within shouting distance of making the championship. It is still unlikely, as there are other people i...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I just wasn't sure if it's as good as whatever other candidates there are. Generally speaking, anything we come up with is significantly better than what actually gets nominated.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Good to see that cmp146 got the prussic acid question correct (and got 2 points for it!). Shoutout to Professor Pruss who is now leading A Magnolia! If her opponents keep defending her like that (zero for Soul Train?) she will keep winning. I don't get it, what's wrong with zero for Soul Train? It ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I've never heard of an isosceles trapezoid either. Though I thought my guess of thrombus sounded pretty cool. I knew it was going to be Hepburn/Tracy but ended up writing Hepburn/Grant because that's how an imperfect brain works. After yesterday's match, I have to hand in my passport, poutine and h...

Re: LL83: Learned League

It didn't matter in the match results, but I was given credit for "serum albumin" on the blood question. Any thoughts?: is that effectively close enough to the more general answer of just "serum" or did the scoring algorithm see the intended answer in the first word and stop there? I couldn't tell ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

The person who has won A Magnolia several times, and beat me like a rented mule for years, isn't playing this sesson. The weird thing is that our head-to-head record has been wiped from the record. To be honest, I'm happy about that. Same for the person who posted six 9(6)’s to close out LL81 and b...
