Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Giving the MCU ML a whirl. How do you remember Stan Lee's barber cameo...but not the -Tesseract-?! It's a small comfort that my scoring actually did match up, more or less, with the overall correct % per clue at least. More comforting was beering it. :lol: I thought about entering this one, but aft...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

ETA: this should have appended morbeedo's post about his 1DS on Doomed Voyages.

well done maestro! I especially enjoyed the pithy blurb :lol:
Spoiler
They should have stayed home.
I hope to do better than my 20 point Alice in Wonderland performance :!:

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Also congrats to the 12FootBoy for being the 77th unluckiest Llama in Season 85! I only got 77th? Is this a real thing? I noticed how my Correct Answers Allowed (this should be "against" as noted earlier) was an outlier in my lowly D rundle. I even did the math and it was about 2.5 standard deviati...

Re: A Math Question

I really want to thank everyone for jumping in with the math. My initial thought was either 41% or 59% by doing the 80*80*80*80 thing...but couldn't figure out which was the number I was looking for (we want to see zero roosters). So far, it's looking like all hens...but time will tell. I hate to b...

Re: It Was a Long Time Coming

So, from a standard question for pre-nuptial counseling:

Q: Where do you see yourselves in five years?
A: Just ten years from tying the knot :lol:.

Congrats!

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

from the depths of a D rundle:

15-15-17-9

With only 2 wins, the W/L is irrelevant. I get thumped on good days and bad days :). The players get their A game up against me. My CAA leads the rundle with 78, vs the next highest of 70 and an average of 62.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I was judged to be correct with “silica.” Science isn’t my strongest area but I was able to see si-al & went from there. I’m in 4th place in my rundle. I hope it’s a ton of geography next week! Silica is a lot better derivative answer than silicone. Geologically speaking, the heavy hitters are magn...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Was anybody else distracted by this: This "Rebellion" is known by what alliterative name, which it was given ... I wanted to answer Rum Rebellion, but since "Rebellion" was in the clue, I answered Rum Revolution (and got credit for a correct answer). I assume just "Rum" would have sufficed. Is this ...

I was hoping to see a bombshell announcement that Alex has decided to make this episode his final show. I haven't kept up with related threads here or health updates, but why must he burn his bridges from both ends ( show related, but not very pithy quip ;) ). I know lots of boardies want AT to go f...

and Tuesday's Jeopardy!, which I didn't get to until Friday evening because I'm currently working again, dropped exactly the same information about the Musee D'Orsay as Thorsten did. I wondered how Meggie got this and how it was in a middle row clue. It doesn't seem that famous unless you are an ar...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Bad loss yesterday 2(3) - 3(3) when I didn't take enough time to remember that pate does not equal foie gras. I grew up in a french canadian household and the words foie gras were never spoken, only pate, so I consider them interchangeable. Would've been a nice 2 points for the win... Yes, I feed m...

How did 80+% get cheesesteak? Northeast regional invented sandwich in close proximity to New Jersey. Cheesesteak was either going to be right or the MCWA.

Felt stupid once reminded that there were TWO Bushes with a Texas connection. "Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." I was misled by the category - isn't there likely a museum for every president? I went with California for the Reagan and Nixon libraries plus...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Yesterday was probably the most upset at myself I've been in 12 seasons in LL. I forgot to put in an answer that was not only right but would've given me a tie. I went through the questions and knew the players and Johnson right off. I do my defense. I look again at Q1, thought, thats the murder be...

Re: TD 445 - Prime Time [Final results]

So the final reveal on number 11 went 8-8-5 so not a complete script flipper. I was hoping for an epic 13-4-6 or something to shuffle the leaderboard into the loserboard. Or at least to trade places with AFRET after my poke :). Appropriately, And the co-champions… 1. merica - 31 1. Gamawire - 31 The...

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. This is almost the dress question to me. My mental narration as I read this post was an almost per...
