Re: Friday, February 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was guest host Mike's description of the XYZ affair accurate? Were the French trying to bribe the Americans (as Mike claimed) or were they demanding bribes from the Americans? I've always understood it to be the latter. Talleyrand, the French diplomat, wanted a bribe before any negotiations would s...

Congratulations to anyone getting those FJs right in 2021.
The lottery one is gettable, or, at least, I got it, by naming the states with the three most populous urban areas.
I was trying to remember which states were the first to start a lottery.

Just the category I want when I am trying to salvage a winning FJ week. I wasn’t disappointed when I had it done just as the music started. I was worried the baseball category would go the way of the infamous football category but I joined Syed in knocking it out of the park. The (Mr.) Potato Head c...

I put Lynchburg but Tennessee popped up as the correct answer. Still got credit.

Doubt that we’ll ever see clues about Larry Nasser or John Geddert. Jeopardy! won’t touch that
I agree. Just glad he’s dead.

Re: 2021 Current Events Study GUIDE. Study GUIDE.

Former US Gymnastics coach John Geddert killed himself just before he was to be arrested on charges of human trafficking and sexual assault. He had connections with Larry Nasser, the disgraced Michigan State doctor serving a lengthy prison term for rape.

They moved his casket in 2019. Not sure if they checked to see if he is still dead.

I wasn’t confident I could come up with a cosmetics company but got it halfway through the first verse.

A good game with three high scores not particularly helped by DD bets.

Mike is growing on me as a host.

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

I will confess I had never heard of the Crystal Palace. But I did know about the Great Exhibition of 1851 and got it from that. And I still maintain London is a reasonable guess for the top row if you don’t know.

Re: Reretaken Down

Those media fact check sites come with their own heavy biases. I read their review of NYT just for laughs & it’s quite funny. I found AFRET's citation (mediabiasfactcheck.com) very interesting and informative. No laughs here. I hadn't looked at a resource of this type, but I'm sure that there are p...
