Re: Learned League 84

Bomtr has pretty much wrapped up A Continental (along with Maso) and is vying with Teapot for the Jboard Private Rundle (Premier League). I’m in 4th and trying to work my way up into Chapionship territory (the less said about my Orivate Rundle performance the better).

Re: Learned League 84

Thorsten now has unlimited advanced access for the rest of the season if you need it. I also noticed you can now block people from tracking you if you want. Is there somewhere to see if you are being tracked? And are you saying you can select who tracks you, or just make it so no one can track you?...

Re: Friday, March 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't have the historic Yankee numbers memorized, but I knew that 1939 was approximately when Gehrig was forced to retire. He never told his wife he had a terminal illness. In real life, as opposed to the famous movie, it was the other way around. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic, and his wife, apparen...

Re: TD 441 - Vermont (Final Standings)

As I said in my submission, this was a very well-conceived and enjoyable quiz. I consciously employed a strategy here of choosing what I judged to be the third most obvious answer. I chose to stop the question where I was least certain if which answer to choose. In the end, it got me one Singleton, ...

Re: Friday, March 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think that FJ might have been the most painful 10 min of TV that I’ve watched in a good long time. Even Alex sounded pained. Fortunately, they turned it around in DJ, which was well-played. FJ: Bird+white+Latin? Done.

Re: Wednesday, March 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tim Berners-Lee is a TS??? I haz a sad. Another fairly simple FJ. The champ adheres to my recent conclusion about success on the show: good or better buzzer speed and success on FJ.

Re: Learned League 84

Nissan and...... Subaru I recall reading a lot about him from scandal, arrest and through escape, but not anything about companies other than Nissan. *sigh* OK, who remembers the brand that Nissan sold cars under in the U.S. until 1986? Datsun Me. I had to spend about a minute recalling what the cu...

Re: Learned League 84

Thanks to the Current Events thread, I had Ghosn and Nissan on a flashcard. Unfortunately for me, I didn't bother to also put Renault, so I missed that. It would have taken one second to add that to the card, too. Bah. Yeah, I associated him with Nissan. Had no idea before yesterday that he was act...

Yep, “stick insect” is another term for them. I said Poseidon for Neptune but can’t think of a reason why it wouldn’t be acceptable. Gimme FJ tonight.

Re: Tuesday, March 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's worth knowing that the ten largest U.S. states are all west of the Mississippi. The largest state east of the Mississippi is Michigan, at #11 Indeed. Montana = 4th largest state seems to come up a lot. As we learned in schools all over Texas, Montana is the THIRD largest state (that's complete...

For FJ I figured Indonesia was #1, but then decided Iran has to be #2 and that was my demise. I put Iran and Saudi Arabia even though I'm not sure a water border would even count. Sort of embarrassing to get both countries wrong! No clue why Pakistan wasn't even on my radar. :oops: I was another wh...

Re: Friday, March 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That goalie clue was bad. 1) They asked for a player, not a position and 2) not that we'll ever know, but I wonder if they would have taken "keeper" or "goalkeeper". The book's title uses "Goalie". I almost never hear them called a goalie. i agree with you that keep, keeper and goalkeeper are proba...

Re: Learned League 84

For the third time this season, I talked myself out of a correct answer. After having written Hoboken in (having rejected Jersey City, Newark and Ft Lee as unlikely) I unwisely decided that Paramus was a more likely name for a musicographer. To quote a former pub trivia name for our team, good logic...

Re: Learned League 84

I didn't even have a decent guess for the video game, so I went for a best wrong answer attempt with "Bend a Fender Like Beckham." That's a great one, Kirk. I got, as expected, 3 from both my opponents for the video game question, which was a Slumdog Millionaire moment for me. There's no way they c...

Negged with andante instead of allegro, no excuse for that as I have an Anki deck of Italian musical terms. I have trouble with andante because ándate is Spanish for hurry up.... 1) Perchance you mean andaLe (and sorry if I don't know how to insert diacritical marks)? And not andaTe? Spelled with t...
