Trying this with as little snark as possible...what is the purpose of bumping two-week old threads just to let us know that you know everything? You think we haven't figured that out by now?
I have to agree on this point.

(The discus and hammer records are older, both dating back to 1986, and are held by an East German and a Soviet, respectively.)
And I'm sure they weren't drugged or anything.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I just checked out the NAQT "You Gotta Know" for June 2021. It's usually loaded the first day of the month, but I'm dead certain I checked and it wasn't there at the beginning of the month. The topic? "Countries once known by different names". What's the first thing on the list? "Bangladesh adopted...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I agreed with the ranking all the way through to 2 (I rate the person ranked 1 in the bottom 3). Odd how the writer manages to rank Guthrie when we've only seen two days of her hosting. I mostly agree with your ranking, although I put Rodgers ahead of Cooper and Ken just barely ahead of Buzzy. Mike...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I knew sinister was related to being left handed and I’ve seen the etymology of ambidextrous somewhere before but I didn’t think of that connection. Went from Spanish derecha to Derek. Kicking myself for missing Dexter and Venice. I got you beat ... I had droite (French), destra (Italian), and dere...

I was beaten to the Ruby Yacht.

Savannah Guthrie's already tall. A few years ago, she was on a flight I was on. I thought it was an impressive debut.

Count me as another who didn't like the wording of the FJ clue.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

After the first episode, I would have given her a 9. But I found the constant inappropriate chortling or giggling really wearing after a while so I downgraded her to a 7. Like what's so funny about a response of 'Spitz' (I don't remember if she did it after that one specifically, but there are many ...

Do we have a 2032 Current Events thread yet? Brisbane (Australia, not California) may be next month named the host for the Summer Olympics eleven years from now.
Assuming there's still an Olympics. And/or an Australia. And/or a 2032.

That DC avenues question was just plain awful. Even if you deduced they were looking for south to north (which wasn't clear; what does 'next' mean?), Virginia, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, and Maryland are legitimate responses. Ugh.
