Re: Wednesday, January 3, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Must be, because I'm looking at the US home page right now (signed in and all as a Prime member) and not seeing those or anything remotely like them. They only show up if you buy items (like toothpaste and medicines and earplugs, for me) that may need regular replacement or refills. That's the orig...

Dash buttons + dash wand = could be any company you order from. I negged with eBay, and figured there were a lot more that were equally cromulent. Surely you have ordered from Amazon before? These are advertised pretty heavily on their homepage. I'm with TPH on this one. I shop on Amazon all the ti...

Re: Wednesday, December 27, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

A few people complained about the “picky dickie” accept, my wife actually complained about “Gaelic” being accepted for “Irish”. I think this is because her mom comes from a Gaelic background so “the Gaelic language” only means “Scots Gaelic” to her. Even though I’m not as fiercely Scottish as she i...

I tried to keep the strategy of most obvious clueless guesses for FJ for the week that worked on the painting and the battle this week . So I settled on England, but knew it would be Denmark or Netherlands on the miss. I counted Elizabeth II's ascension as an abdication from the Queen Mum, but not ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

"The Troubles" was the name given to the decades-long violent conflict in N. Ireland between Irish nationalists/republicans (who want N.

FANTASTIC performance, Bobby! I knew you'd be the one to beat as soon as you solved those first two timed puzzles, and you didn't disappoint. I almost groaned aloud when you bankrupted, but then suddenly you were back up over $10K again. Jaw-droppingly great play. :o I don't watch WoF normally, but...

"Resistance" is a form of exercise?! Compare exercise which is aerobic (walking, running, cycling etc, in which your heart-rate increases), with exercise which involves exercising your muscles using an opposing force - ie resistance. Examples of resistance training or exercise include using resista...

So I'm supposed to know what color a gown is at a debutante ball? How does anyone know that?
Because debutantes traditionally wore white. Sacrificial virgins being launched on the marriage market, you know, to be sold to the highest bidder.

Loved how Keith cut through all the math bumblings and supplied a solid answer and rationale.
That - but more important, he first focused on grounding Mike and de-stressing the overall experience with some reassurance and calming techniques. I'd say that was even more important.

Sure, some people write faster than others. I wondered how many contestants would be have time to write Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band down, thinking some might (hopefully remembering to abbreviate sergeant and omit punctuation), and thought some might say "Sgt Peppers". Very good speed in for...

Yes, they should bring Wilbur back - that's a flag on whoever made the decision to make that a clue on Final Jeopardy. He definitely knew and communicated the answer, and he ran out of time because there was too much to write - not because he thought about it too long. So how do you explain the fac...

I said propaganda for what the weapon was that got Lord Haw Haw in trouble. Judges?
My husband and I also said "propaganda."
Me too. That's precisely what Lord Haw-Haw was known for; radio was just the medium, not the 'weapon'.

Living in Ireland and the UK in the 1980s paid off - there was no way I was missing either Astley or Soft Cell. And our CD collection includes multiple 80s collections as well as Soft Cell albums.

I almost don't have the heart to make in-depth predictions about how the semis will go, because I would want multiple people from each game to advance. They're also all brilliant players, so it's more difficult to pick a stronger winner among any of them. But here goes. Again, disclaimer: I wasn't ...

In that Franciscan category, how are you supposed to get Grey? The only thing I can think of is by knowing that Greyfriars is a thing. But other than that, I don't see anything in the clue that helps. Hey Bobby-- From the habits they once wore, a Franciscan order of Britain & Ireland is known as th...
