Re: LL83: Learned League

Anyway, as I look on the detailed standings board to see how I can be leading when my correct answer and total match point numbers are eighth in the rundle, I noticed two statistical metrics that I didn't understand: Unforced Points Allowed and Correct Answers Allowed. I think I have an idea what t...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Two sports questions in the same day? And a relatively easy history and pop music for a mid-40s hair band fan? More please... Anyone who knows anything about cycling knows EPO, and I happen to love playing Pai Gow at the casino. And I saw Ratt's current incarnation a couple years ago with Dokken, pr...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Pretty much run the gamut the last few days. First off, I get my best ever showing in MSC with 8/12, almost perfect moneying for 393 points, and highest score in D Magnolia. Who hoo! Then the last MD16-18 happen...4/18 (2,0,2). Ouch. Somehow I went 1-1-1 those three days. MD 16 was frustrating as my...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Yesterday was one of my most frustrating days in 10 seasons. So close to a 4(4)-3(3) win but I a. Talked myself our of Oprah because I thought the question summarized all the books the author had written and I figured she's written a lot more; b. I couldn't name a single Kanye album but left off "co...

Re: LL83: Learned League

At some point, the Koin becomes a coin right? Right? Looking back this season I'm now 0-4 on coin flips, yesterday missing on Copenhagen/Oslo. I was pretty sure Bohr was one or the other but picked the wrong one. Proud to get LA Kings knowing very little about bible books but I am able to name all o...

Re: LL83: Learned League

For the corundum question, my thoughts were it's probably ruby or emerald so I'll just go with emerald. Those 3 points cost me a win 3(3) - 5(3). Got Cornwallis as to me Yorktown is the greatest thing of note from VA in the revolution, SVU cause its everywhere and even though I've never seen it WECI...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I am embarrassed by how long it took me to remember Mildred Pierce . For the golf one, I was like, "Medinah? That sounds familiar. No idea, though. submits THAT's why I know Medinah." Didn’t recognize any of the places but thought golf, bc what else? Then maybe tennis? Thought both too obvious and ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I was a little surprised he didn't ask for both Frost and Nixon...I re-read the question like 15 times to make sure he only wanted one. 4(4) - 0(0) win to get me in the top 3 of D Magnolia D2.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Almost got a W0(0) - 0(0)F yesterday after submitting with the Koin coming up IL over TN but I did stick with my gut on heavy despite heavier being in the question. I knew about heavy water from nuclear reactors cooling water but the heavier definitely threw me. I almost put "distilled" as some othe...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Opened with a self-inflicted 3(3) - 3(3) tie...I recognized the city question as referring to govt money related sites but my mint Koin came up Denver over SF...the real kicker was Q2 where I didn't know it but thought, that's probably the Orwell novel with Big Brother, so I promptly typed in Animal...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How is the current ML and recent 1Ds going for the rest of you? I'm 0 for 2 on the ML thus far. It wouldn't have gotten me a win yesterday (I find using the Golden Arches theory in a theme of pop culture just because it involves McDonald's to be pushing it, but I digress), and as a big fan of comic...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

edit: I just looked at the csv file that has stats for the entire league and I led the league in both CAA and TPA! Congratulations? I ended a difficult season for me with a 7(5) - 5(4) win getting all except viceroy. I was a little surprised that trade winds was only 48% and leaves, which me and my...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

...and no pesto I've ever had has had pine nuts... Are you sure about that? Admittedly, alternatives can be used, but the nuts get pulverized during the making so the sauce itself has no visible nuts. So, no I guess I'm not. If that's the case, I'm even more surprised that 92% knew it is pine nuts,...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

My Koin is working super overtime this year, this time on Kuala Lampur/Jakarta which cost me a win. I'm mired mid-rundle, and I've personally found this season very challenging and my Qpct is below my average and I will struggle to get up to the same TCA as my worst non-rookie season. I've found a t...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

My greatest achievement this season is leading my rundle in both CAA (108, next is 100) and TPA (156, next is 144). I liked yesterday's set and got all six right. On the subject of those statistical achievements: BackesER is leading his rundle by a longshot in correct answers given (96 to 62), tota...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How could the Merrimack question have been the hardest? What did people answer for that, since Merrimack was already in the clue? I consider myself a Civil War buff and it still took me a while to remember the Merrimack was re-named the Virginia, and at that I was not sure enough about it to money ...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

My Koin is working overtime this season. Just yesterday I had Washington/Carver and WJRL/WLRJ. I knew Washington was first and Roosevelt third but wasn't sure about the other 2. If I got both, I win. Mt Rushmore only, I tie. Missed both and lost. I wonder if I had answered Washington Carver if it wo...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Did trout have the highest get rate? Surely the highest in a long time. I read that one, and went, "Seriously, Thorsten?" This is only my 8th season but its the highest I can remember...I wonder what the get rate would've been if he left off rainbow. My Koin came up with Fuller instead of Wright co...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Full or pull. Thiiis close. No chance for me on crap sitcoms aimed at kids. Don't tell anybody. Full or pull for me as well... Never heard the term before but I also haven't had an econ class since freshman year of HS. My opponent who had previously got most of the econ terms questions wrong got it...
