Re: Tuesday, February 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As a Winnie-the-Pooh fan, I must protest that Hundred Acre Woods, like Revelations, is flat out wrong. I was fully expecting a reversal. At least the wagering made this irrelevant. If anyone is keeping track, one more here expecting a reversal on "Woods". Glad I'm not the only one that found the ga...

For Arizona's state firearm I said "six-shooter." According to Wikipedia, it's actually a Colt Single Action Army revolver with "a revolving cylinder holding six metallic cartridges."
I said 6-shooter as well.

Probably would not have gotten FJ without the year.

Finally got around to this, seemed the easiest of the 3 to me, and got the best score of the week with 41. Of course, that may not have happened if I had taken it for real at 11:00. :lol:

Took this one off the video. I thought it felt roughly equivalent to the Eastern test, as borne out by my similar scores (37 here vs. 39 when I took it for real).

Most annoying miss was answering the wrong question on the Bible...concentrated on “him” and thought they were looking for the man and totally overlooked “this book”. Also blanked on a couple and lost a couple of coin tosses. Still, managed 39. We’ll see.

Re: FJs for the 1/20/20 week

For the supercontinent, I started with The Traveling Wilburys, but I corrected myself quickly enough that I think Alex wouldn't have had time to rule against me. More like superincontinent given their ages. What does that make you and me? When they formed, Roy Orbison, the oldest member of the grou...

In my mind (influenced by TV/movies/books - with no actual knowledge) Maine is not a hustle & bustle, rush-rush state. If you drive US1 mid-coast, you will see how right you are. Though part of it is that Maine has the highest median age of any state. If you're talking traffic, most of the time it'...

Personally, enough already with the special tournaments. GOAT was wonderful. Let's bask in its beauty for a while.

100X this. Although I do find the idea of James vs. Alex J. intriguing.

Re: Monday, January 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Now, with most cable/fiber optic/satellite companies offering their own DVRs, and the elimination of VCRs, it's back to either "record", or occasionally "DVR", so DVR should now be on the tip of the tongue for a modern TV recording device, not TiVo. My mom used to say that she would "tape" somethin...

Wish it had lasted longer, but happy with the outcome.

Otherwise, my main observation for the night is that "Screaming Popes" would be an awesome band name.

Was it just me or did Katie seem to be getting emotionally upset on the Avon DD?

You could practically see her mentally coin-flipping between Avon and Mary Kay. I figured she was upset with herself for going the wrong way.

James Madison as part of a FJ answer on day two and then the Democratic-Republicans on day three? Come on, writers, lets show a little more range! At the very least, it's hammered home that I really need to brush up on my political history. I matched Ken on the incorrect response to the former FJ. ...

On James’s DD miss, I spent most of the time thinking the colors referred to the state of Florida and not Florida State, the school. Had to pivot really quickly to get to birthstones that are kind of red and then garnet. Rather embarrassingly, I came up with ruby, despite garnet being MY FREAKIN' B...
