Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

For the "From hell's heart, I stab at thee..." question, I'm counting my answer of Khan Noonian Singh I started there with you, though I also managed to work my way to the expected answer. I wonder what the connection is between Star Trek and Moby-Dick - in First Contact Picard (mis)quotes from the...

In the "Three Cs" category, I got the correct answer (cockscomb) but thought it was wrong because I spell it "coxcomb" (only 2 Cs). Turns out both spellings are acceptable.

Poster hbomb indicated on Facebook that the show will resume taping new shows later this month using an interim host. This information comes from a source not affiliated with the show, so take it for what it's worth.

I'd be interested in a poll question asking whether Dread Pirate Roberts was only known because of The Princess Bride . I had absolutely no idea he was actually a real pirate, but when spotted Dread Pirate, I'm going for the obvious. Count me as one who got this because of the PB reference. Otherwi...

Arterial was a terrible trap. It's almost as if they put the word "adjective" in the clue just so the writers could go "haw haw". A better clue would have been "Word that describes blood leaving the heart" - arterial doesn't only have to refer to the vessels themselves, so you could make it more pa...

Atomic mass and weight are not synonymous, I see that now. But where did chlorine come from?
But would the judges have accepted "atomic mass"? That was my answer, since "weight" is variable depending upon gravity, whereas "mass" is constant.

Also, would it be normal for miltary bases to have ovens? I know there are kitchen facilities but any image I have of military cooking from tv or movies never involves baking. First video I found, it's tough to immediately spot any ovens in this clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIGKiv1D_0Q The...

I guessed "Fast & the Curious". Not exactly a pun, I guess, but it seemed to go well with cats.
I thought I heard "Furriest", rather than "Furrious" and expected a judges' ruling that didn't come.

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

I have had a positive test and have had symptoms that lasted almost two weeks, mostly a recurrent fever, dizziness and weakness, and nausea, but no respiratory issues. I'm currently on the mend.

"Pork you pine" doesn't really work, since pine in that sense isn't a transitive verb. I liked the rest of the category, though!
I mentally added "for". It made me think of this Family Feud episode.

I expect we will be seeing all three of these contestants in the semi-finals. I could cheer for any of them. Maybe they will all be in separate games! Then we can cheer for all of them! OK, for the record, has there ever been a tournament final in which the three contestants met in the first round?...

Re: Wednesday, April 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm curious for those who learned the "sometimes w" rule, when did you learn it? I learned "sometimes y" but NOT "sometimes w" in 1971. James Buchanan Elementary School, probably 2nd grade, so 1959-1960. I also recall hearing “sometimes w” but I had forgotten about it until now. And I find the fact...
