Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

I'll post the third quintmester synopsis of the JboardLite rundle soon - I think three lead changes and a horse race at the top. Please do it while I'm still in 1st place! In my regular rundle, I've been in the red zone all season. I've fallen and I can't get up!! So be it :lol: I am also on the ex...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

My interest in all things British helped me be the only one in my rundle to get "Constituencies"...but I was one of the few who did not know that Ralph wrecked the Internet. So, I guess it was a wash. This was a great get - I don't see how it pulled 29% based on the followup by boardies here. This ...

ETA: Found the "kick baler" video. If they sold 100 of these things I'd be amazed, it certainly isn't a mainstream rancher getup. It looks fun at least for 5 minutes or until the first load has to be dumped. https://machinesvideo.com/rolling-oaks-farm-hay-baling-396 The John Deere 348's been in pro...

I must issue a PSA for the non-aggies on the board: I don't know what that flying hay bale was about, but that does not resemble any form of hay hauling in this hemisphere. Somebody is punking the writers or something :lol: . There is machinery to pick up old school square bales (as in the picture),...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

51 for Golden Gate? I was guessing that one would be in the 90s. Serious mental miscalculation on that one since I like guessing the overall percent (not that it mattered for me; I got beered). For aa and pahoepahoe, I was curious what people guessed if they didn't know it, especially since there w...

Update on the second quintmester results for the JBL: Bamaman has won 5 straight to maintain the lead with 16 points :mrgreen: ClassicRoadster has alternated with morbeedo for second and is hanging tough with 14 points. There's a bit of a gap with four players at 11 points, but morbeedo has a comman...

Re: Tuesday, November 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm wondering what would be the worst misspelling of this FJ! that would still be accepted. zha-VAIR? I think they should have taken Dan's rendering of "Joubert". I would have spelled something similar, but put "Inspector Jabert" or "Inspector Jabeir" and maybe even added the parenthetical (Les Miz...

Hooray - a layup for the FJ and my first Box of Glory in at least a year! Twelvefootgirl got Tom Cruise from the photo. No help to me, they might as well have on a N95 mask. I did get Jackie Joyner from heptathlon. I think "This is not Kirk" may be able to break the left podium jinx on Monday. Thank...

Just a heads up about tomorrow's FJ: The category is going to be non-Bugs Bunny Opera. I'm 4/4 in FJ this week and they've all been instagets.

I can't take the idea of a unicorn on a flag seriously :lol: . A pangolin, maybe :)

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

News from the JboardLite private rundle: (spoilered to protect the innocent and dis-interested :).) After 5 days, the lead has changed every day. Bamaman is the current holder of the hot seat - can he hold on? ClassicRoadster, morbeedo, and twelvefootsis2 are former leaders. Singleton answers (of 10...

I just joined the Jboard lite rundle - FWIW I bounce around between A and B rundles and sometimes C.
