Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The chain is actually called "General Nutrition Center" while Matt said "Nutritional." I was surprised they didn't change his score. The clue has "Centers" and Wikipedia agrees. I heard "Nutrition" by Matt and the CC agrees for how I archived it. We'll see if another post wants to break the tie. I'...

Question about the GNC clue: I thought they *were* only asking for what the N meant?
The category had General in quotes.

I knew that QEII was the first televised coronation in 53, so I figured we were probably doing SotU's a bit before that, so I went with Truman.

Nuclear fission for "nuclear chain reaction"? Again, I'm leaning towards "OO, SORRY", or perhaps a BMS where I give Alex a confused look. The chain reaction does involve fission, but I think the whole point of the clue was to get to the "chain reaction" part. Fission can occur without the chain rea...

Had MTA for Police Squad $800 — judges?
Nope. The MTA runs the buses and subway. They don't have a police unit (which is basically why Adam was negged. If he had just said the Transit Police, which is part of the NYPD, he'd have been fine.).

Re: Learned League 84

Promoted to A Taiga. So strange because I had dropped from A to B and then down to C, then couldn't get promoted to B but got re-assigned up for this season, now I'm promoted to A! If I can improve my games/sports score, I might have a chance to stave off relegation for a while. I will take your sp...

Re: J! in the Media

When they relaxed the age requirements for the tryouts for the 2016 College Championship, I thought they would've had a specifically older student, rather than just having two 23-year-olds and a 24-year-old (at the time of the tournament). I wouldn't be eligible for this tournament no matter what, ...

I have a series of beefs about tonight's game :

* why did they accept Annapolis when the clue asked for the name of a military academy?
For the same reason they would accept West Point -- it's a perfectly acceptable alternate name.

Re: Learned League 84

I actually have 6 wins, which is one more than I had in my maiden journey to A Taiga, so goals met!

And then I'll get relegated back to B where I belong. :)

Re: Our Current Situation

Bezos stock sell-off was automatic. If I'm mistaken please correct me so I get better information. It was set-up so that once Amazon stock goes over a certain value it sells off automatically. Yes and no. From a CNBC article: "The transactions were made as part of a prearranged 10b5-1 trading plan,...

Is there an agreed-upon standard for board games getting italics or not? The archive is not consistent while I know correction suggestions will come in about it.
I would say yes, they should be italicized.

More eyebrow-raising to me was Michonne successfully altering two of her responses, changing "Eurorail" to "Eurail Pass" when Alex asked her to say it again, and "roll vote" to "roll call" when Alex hesitated. I know it's fair game to take another stab if Alex hasn't ruled against you, but with the...

I guessed Panama, thinking of the Canal Zone, I guess, since the country itself was independent in 1903.
Panama was my guess, too. Can't say I ever knew that the Philippines had representation.
