Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Apparently all these years I've had one false memory after another of ever being a child. 93% get rate on "Marco Polo" as the aquatic equivalent of blind man's bluff? I'm not connecting with that at all. :? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjoAy5AJkwY Nicely illustrated. Generally, I don't care for ...

I'm floored that somehow more people knew the words for right and left (hand) in Latin than knew either Diesel or Death in Venice.
I'm not floored, but I am surprised at the relatively low get rate for diesel. I didn't connect re "Death in Venice" ... at least I had the right country (Rome) 🤪

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I know full well what a first down signal looks like but I couldn't parse the description. I ended up putting "touchback". I was glad that my answer of "Hallelujah Chorus" was accepted. I answered "touchback" as well. Already expressed my confusion above. Although I don't follow football at all any...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Gotta say, I'm baffled that over half the league doesn't know what a first down signal looks like. Sadly, combined with my horrendous defense this season, that turned my six-pack into a 9(6)-9(5) tie. In my case, it was an RTFQ: I thought it said that the ref’s arm was perpendicular to the ground, ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Grey Davis blamed Enron for his failure & recall as CA governor? Odd. But there's truth to it. During the 2000-2001 energy crisis, we had statewide rolling blackouts due to how much Enron was charging for energy (thanks to the energy deregulation bill signed in by Pete Wilson). So in an attempt to ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Perhaps I anchored onto the correct answer -- South Korea -- for a misguided reason. I didn't think in terms of which countries (former territories) gained their independence soon after WW II, but which countries first came into being as distinct entities , and the only ones that came to mind were I...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Pulled all 6 yesterday. Today I play my LL nemesis, WollnerJ. We've played 7 times, and I have yet to beat her, having earned 5 losses and 2 ties. I have 2 chances to break the streak this season. Good luck she 9(6)-7(5)ed me yesterday. I'm 3-6-4 against her. I referred Jackie sometime back in the ...

Re: Stage manager John Lauderdale has retired

Best wishes to John in retirement (or wherever). Consummate professional and super guy, whether he was managing us contestants on stage or the time when I was standing on the audience line outside the studio and we had a very pleasant chat.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Rats. Got all 12 right in Comic Strips, and was just 16 points away from the Championship. Still, pretty darn good! I got 10/12. The two I missed were apparently among the "easiest": Pearls Before Swine and No Garfield.... no clue on either. On moneying, I figured that Lucy and Calvinball were the ...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I have a general question about LL. I was in it several years ago; my family came upon hard times financially when my wife got injured and I lost my job, so I had to bow out. I remember Thorsten saying that he was considering a policy where one cannot rejoin. I no longer get the emails at the end o...

Re: Reretaken Down

The "Heart Of Glass" clue reminded that Miley Cyrus did a cover version. It's worth a listen for those who are able to stomach a remaking of a classic. Some cannot under any circumstances. Speaking of Blondie songs and covers, some of you may not know that "The Tide Is High" is a remake. The origin...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I'll admit the two parenthetical statements gave me pause, but not enough that I was willing to not just go with the major river that flows through Vienna. I figured if it was something else I wasn't going to get it, anyway. Exactly. Initially I thought: Europe, pre-WWI....maybe something to do wit...
