How about "There's a Hole in My Bucket Week", for Second Chance contestants over 50?

Re: Leszek's run

Spoiler
I revel in my status, but the fact that Leszek and Brandon together didn't overtake me only proves that it's just dumb luck. Head to head either one of them would dismantle me. That was a tough draw, Leszek, but I hope you at least had fun.

The only person in my group with a perfect score is in 6th place. I've missed two questions -- fourth best TCA in my group -- and I'm in 9th.

Defense in MiniLeagues sucks.

I wonder if those who went there the first time and didn't get on are going to want to go through it again.
So do they.

Preliminary word from the casting folks is that it will be at least a couple of months before they even make that decision.

Re: Few questions about the audition

And if they tell you to do anything, do it, with enthusiasm. No questions asked. This really is the most important thing to remember, mainly because so many people seem to think it is the least. You are taping 5 shows in one day! They don't have time for people they have to say things twice to. Rex

Re: Few questions about the audition

- The test is "most important" in the sense that if you don't pass, you don't get to go any further in the process. But in a different sense, it is the least important factor. Once you pass, your score is (with one possible exception) essentially disregarded. You've passed their minimum floor of kno...

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

No. Men do not mansplain to one another and women do not mansplain to anyone. Those are examples of garden variety condescension. Mansplaining is a very specific subset of condescension. Conflating the two and talking about them as though they are the same thing utterly misses the point. Describing...

It's intentional something. I myself can't decide if it's illustration, irony, or satire. Maybe it's all three.

I don't see how you can interpret the word so that it does not imply that the actions of the person being criticized stem directly from that person being a man. Okay, okay. No need to get hysterical.

I can't believe I'm answering this, but nonetheless ... besides the obvious I have no idea, I don't think it's changeable. We are currently on version 3.0.14. There is a 3.1.5 which presumably eliminates such antiquated holdovers. However, there are apparently substantial enough differences between...

There is justification for that position, too -- the very use of a gendered term always runs the risk of sexism, for one thing -- and I will even grant that people sometimes misuse the term in a sexist way, to dismiss the opinions of men just because they are men; but those people are clearly not e...
