Re: TD 442 - 11 Assorted Questions

Yay, I get to bring up one of my pet peeves! 7) Submit here by 4 PM EST on Tuesday, March 24. https://forms.gle/14C4tbYGrYfp66wK7 The Eastern time zone is currently observing daylight saving time, so you probably mean 4 PM EDT. If not, then wall time would be 5 PM. I usually just say "Eastern time"...

Re: Wednesday, March 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

WTH does the Mandela Effect even mean? The category was interesting, but what does the title have to do with anything? It's a very silly conspiracy theory that some people take very seriously. Basically it takes the fact that many people seem to have the same false memories (the classic examples in...

TD 442 - 11 Assorted Questions (all questions revealed)

Hello and welcome to TD 442! I thought we could all use another distraction right now, so I cobbled together an unthemed game. I hope you all enjoy. 1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer 2) You may use one drop an...

Re: TD 441 - Vermont (Final Standings)

I'm sure I have mentioned this before, but I'm well aware that folks who have played on J! participate in these games, as do folks like you and I who have not. Thus, I do not intend to make it a cakewalk but I do not wish to punish you for having lesser knowledge on certain topics - we all have our...

Thank you for hosting, and pay no attention to my negs behind the curtain.

I'm putting a new TD together this weekend.

Re: Wednesday, March 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would have been in trouble as an NBA fan/Kansas alumnus had I missed The Process, but what confused me was the Kansas City Royals' rebuilding process over the early part of this decade was called the exact same thing. The team's GM once said "trust the process" at a press conference, and this phra...

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

The only thing I associated with Tahiti was Gauguin, and I couldn't think of any Gauguin movies. So I tried to just think of the biggest box office movie I could think of in the last year and went with Avengers: Endgame, which it turns out was 2019.

Definitely Shudder.
You can see how he makes a "d" in "Island". I vote "Shutter", the first "t" being one of those where you don't take your pen off the paper.
Fair counterpoint. I can now see a "t" in there, albeit an unnatural one.

Re: Wednesday, March 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

At the APogee, the Earth and moon are far APart. At the PERigee, they are PERessed together. Lame, I know, but it works for me. Hey, that just might work. Kind of like how I never forgot the difference between numerator and denominator after my elementary school teacher said that the D is for down.

I don't know why I thought Washington Irving was responsible for the cherry tree myth.

Re: Monday, March 2, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Had this been a top row clue, I'd like to think I may have gotten it, but I zeroed in on "1919" as an intended TOM and matched Bruce's "soldiers" answer. Curious to see how he does tomorrow. He clearly has the buzzer down, and was not afraid to stay with his strategy even after his first two DD miss...

Re: TD 440 - Story About Nothing (Final results)

Thanks for hosting. I'm shocked that I finished top ten given that there were four questions I didn't know (though I had an idea on two of them; Don Ho and Annie Hall).

Re: Wednesday, February 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

After nobody came up with Clara Bow and Howard Carter, I wasn't confident Sacco/Vanzetti would be pulled. Lots of trash but it was far from my best game either.

I said "planet" instead of "satellite", as it seemed more Latin. I couldn't parse what specific root word was in mind.
