Re: Monday, October 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Words In Comprehensible for $800: "Term applicable to both a tirade & a speech based on scripture delivered by clergy" I blurted out "polemic" which has the appropriate letters and fits the first part of the clue, but I'm not so sure about the second. I can envision a fire-and-brimstone sermon as a ...

Nancy can look to any of her incorrect responses where she lost the game although her lack of pluralization in POE "M" would be a good one to rue.

Not a fan of FJ!. Wrote down Type A, Manic and Manic-Depressive with the thought of crossing out two of them as time expired. Unfortunately Manic is the one that made the cut. Not surprised that many here have gotten it correct, but also not surprised that their confidence level seems quite low.

I keyed in on "Around 2010" and went with cicadas. My wife and I also both said cicadas, too. Giving the year for no apparent reason seemed like a bit of a red herring. I have seen photos of the millions of monarch butterflies that migrate to Mexico in winter, but it didn't cross my mind until Alex...

Fantastic - may you have many happy years together!

I especially like that when she asks you to do a project around the house you can look at her and say with a straight face "You do realize I currently have a 15 year backlog, right?"

If you care to share, is there any video online of the segment?

I knew this one, and it's not because I'm smart. I'm pretty sure this fact came up recently on the board although for the life of me I can't remember the context.

THE WEST COAST Approximately 750 feet separate the brass and terrazzo monuments to these two US presidents. Who are Reagan and Trump? (Hollywood Walk of Fame) I don't think I'd be off-base complaining about the choice of the word "monument" here. It struck me as odd too. But what word would you sug...

Another distillation here, and when I detected Alex's pause I thought it was the expected response.

California for FJ!, although I could not come up with a possible third president. It didn't occur to me that presidential libraries are a fairly recent thing.

Math geek warning: No, you don't multiply by 2.54 to convert inches to centimeters. You multiply by (2.54 cm / 1 inch), which is a fraction equal to 1. Factor-label method...you cancel out the inches, and it leaves the cm. That way you never, ever get it wrong - if you multiply by (1 in/2.54 cm), y...

I don't think I've ever made a poll suggestion, but how about "finger and singer rhyme" vs. "finger and singer don't rhyme"?
Second that request.

"Finger" and "Singer" rhyme in German. Not in English.
Okay, somebody help me out - why don't finger and singer rhyme?

Re: Friday, May 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't have any problem with the wording of FJ, but I did not get it either. I kept fixating on Los/Las, recognized them as plural and took a leap thinking the country must be an island or archipelago and came up blank. The reveal was a big "duh, of course!" for me.
