I've never heard of USB as an acronym for a universal service bus.

Re: Monday, February 10, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Picked up lots of Lach trash: "The Color Purple", "Bill de Blasio", "drive", "Maurice Ravel", "Sabre Dance", "period" I got FJ. Like some others have mentioned, I was very surprised that it was a triple stumper. It's too bad that Sarah crossed out "Sicily" and wrote "Crete" instead. I don't remembe...

Re: Friday, February 7, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I also incorrectly had BUY for Sotheby's stock symbol. Got Coca-Cola and Nordstrom's on Lach trash. I thought "glisten" was over-valued at $1,000 in Silent T's. Gluon and Degauss should've been switched in the Physics category. For FJ, I first went to Kasparov, couldn't find anyone he would switch w...

Re: Tuesday, February 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Overall, I felt this game was either fast-paced and done extremely well, or eating dinner during DJ! distracted me. DJ finished at 7:20 on WABC. Usually the final DJ buzzer sounds at 7:21. This is also explained by Alex coming back from the break to read the FJ clue: "I have a couple extra of secon...

Re: Monday, February 3, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was it JQA's wife on the HBO miniseries "John Adams" that had cancer of the breast and had it removed? Or was it John Adams' daughter?

I don't remember them ever mentioning JQA's wife was born in Britain.

Alas, I did not get FJ.

Re: Thursday, January 23, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Got the lach trash for "Generation Kill" in the HBO category. Very good miniseries. As far as HBO-war miniseries go, I'd put it above The Pacific, but definitely not as great as Band of Brothers. It took my way too long to come up with Sir Edmund Hillary, I'll admit the Dalai Lama came to mind first...

Re: Tuesday, January 21, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought "What is Pine?" in the rhyme category was a little easy for $1000 in J! Norway was an instaget for me. Having gone to the SLC olympics in 2002 with Norway winning, I knew that Lillehammer hosted in 94(?) so I thought Oslo must've hosted it in the past. The population helped cement the answ...

Great job Sarah!

Didn't get FJ! only thing that came to mind was the Naval Observatory.

I had no idea that San Diego proper bordered Mexico, so I went with El Paso even though I was pretty sure the population isn't over a million there.

Also surprised no one got Monte Video.

As much as Shakespeare comes up, FJ should have been an instaget for most.

Famous European in the 1500's who had to do with religion? Martin Luther was the first name that came to mind, although I wasn't 100% sure of myself.

I can't belive "Anne of Cleves" was a $1000 (or was it $2000 in DJ?) clue, especially since it had "Cleves" already in the clue.

Re: Monday, December 9, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've been lurking this site for a while now, but I felt the need to sign up today to voice my displeasure with Reen's DD wager as the last clue in DJ. Simply horrible!
