Re: Friday, September 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ!, but I don't know history well enough to instantly remember the difference between the Lusitania and the Bismarck, so I had to think about it. I'll read up on both more closely. In a nutshell: RMS Lusitania -- British ocean liner -- sank during WWI Bismarck -- German battleship -- sank du...

You don't remember it because there wasn't such a clue (5 of the 6 were answered by the person who rang in and John Cho was a TS).

Maybe, but the clue only requires it to "... giv[e] human attributes to nonhuman things". Anthropomorphism does that.

Re: Thursday, September 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

On the first clue of the game, I said "anthropomorphism" for "personification". Judges? Don't see why not. It's what I said, too. Also, I do wish contestants would stop going immediately back to the category they just found the DD in. Seriously, why? For FJ, the first plague I t...

True, although Mayim did pronounce it correctly.

It's not a bad guess. It was around a lot longer than 3 decades, but size-wise you're pretty much bang on (it's about 80 miles).

Re: Tuesday, September 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Some clues that I missed that I want to get next time are orange roughy, Beefeater's, Jupiter Symphony, Shrek , and gig economy. To be pedantic, the gin is "Beefeater" (and I was 20% expecting an overrule). Rereading the clue though, that really was a cruel one; Bombay is just as technica...

James broke $2M faster than Ken broke $1M, so why does it matter how fast Matt makes it to $1M compared to Ken?

Did you mean the pierced nose? Nez Perce is not a deep pull at all. Maybe there was one about pierced ears, but I don't recall (and if so, my apologies).

Can't believe none of them knew "slow as molasses in January." Consarn it, I'm not that old, am I? Especially when spotted two other incorrect months. I got all three DDs but choked on FJ. I said "Thunberg" just to say something. Same here. I'm sure I've heard the name before, b...

The correct word from Matt was intoxicated while I counted my response of inebriated correct as well since the only qualifier was starting with "in" and nothing about word length. Any other acceptable responses? I had inebriated, too. I can't think of any other words that fit, but "i...
