Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe we should poll the "jimmies" issue. Like the poster above, I've always considered the dk. brown ones jimmies and the multicolored ones sprinkles. https://youtu.be/EkdvIVyuO8U I've never heard of them called jimmies -- they're all sprinkles to me. My futility continues with FJ this week. Consi...

I bought two bags of those to bring back with me from my vacation. They're long gone, of course. :)

Commish updated the Interstitial page YouTube video. It's not the basketball kid anymore. It's now some dude and his wild dancing. I enjoyed it.

When Alex mentioned the correct composer I knew two things
That's one more thing than I knew. I knew I was wrong, as I had no response, but still had no clue who it was. Still 0-for the week.

I thought of Prussia and didn't even know if I was on the right track and didn't know how to turn it into a 7-letter adjective, so I just put Prussia.
Pretty sure every acid in existence ends in either -ic or -ous, so that may help in the future.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Good to see that cmp146 got the prussic acid question correct (and got 2 points for it!). :) I overthought the French slave revolt question. That should be a Pavlov for Haiti, but between thinking that was TOO obvious, plus the use of "republic" and "Saint-Domingue"... Me on the heavy water question...

Not a chance for me on the FJ! clue as I was more lost than the players trying Gatsby, SNL and the Apollo Theater. My page was blank as I was trying to find a piece of literature and not some actual group gathering. I wrote nothing and could not even form a possible guess.
Ditto for me.

It was obvious to me what they wanted, but the definition of X-ray was inaccurate. It's an attack where a less valuable piece is attacked "through" a more valuable one, so it becomes attacked if the more valuable piece moves. Neither piece is necessarily forced to move. (The relative value of piece...

What was the TOM for "Naples" in the top box? I "went with the obvious" and figured top-box Italy had to be Rome, right? Why was it wrong? What was even the TOM?
No clue how anyone could get from Neapolis to Naples...

No clue on FJ. I kept thinking of French authors.

Man, though, if they every do a remake of the original Charlie's Angels, Emma is a shoo-in for Kate Jackson.

Why has nobody commented on Julie's wag on st. Thomas ruining the possibility of a win for her? Before that clue she was at 8400 and after Beth got that wrong she was at 16800. 1) Beth was never going to ring in from a lock position. 2) As mentioned above, of course Julie has to ring in.
