Re: Tuesday, December 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I honestly don't remember hearing anything about that happening, but as mentioned above, given 1586, WECIB? San Juan, Puerto Rico? That's what I negged with. Because, you know, 2016 = Trump + hurricane = Puerto Rico. Sigh. I did the subtraction right and didn't bother to notice I was a year off on ...

Have you considered changing the caption beneath your avatar to "Posts About Jeopardy! Way Too Much"? By my count you're already up to 13 posts in this thread.
Don't forget "Insists on quoting entire post".

After all, the quiz didn't accept "Tom Tom Brady" either.
Did it accept Mr. Gisele Bundchen?

Would they have accepted just "Colassus" on the second DD? I got that part, but if he gave me a BMS, I would've been at a loss.
Not if you pronounced it like that.

I matched Eric with my guess. Sounded like some word Winnie the Pooh would have made up.

I just realized that this season was my 4th consecutive in rundle B, and that was my longest streak at the same level in my 27-season LL career. Now let's see if I can top that by surviving the next 5 seasons in A.
Good luck!

I will call hubris on Eric making that Daily Double. Getting it right would not have put the game away for him, but getting it wrong nearly made the game a free-for-all.
So now it's hubris not to bet enough?
Hubris could literally be anything.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Or does Thorsten create ghost players when he has an odd number of players in a rundle? That does sound vaguely familiar. I got promoted back to A Taiga, though I couldn't possibly tell you how. I finished 11-6-8 with a rather underwhelming 84 TCA and 22 points below my QPct. That was only 13th bes...

It's one where Jeopardy! loves to put the year in clues. http://www.j-archive.com/search.php?search=1902+heart+of+darkness&submit=Search To be fair, it's been mentioned once in 6 1/2 years prior to tonight, so it's not like it's been...

Chrome just gave me a warning saying that I have to change my password due to a data breach on this site. Has anyone else gotten this warning, or is it a false positive?
You just have to change it to literally any password...


It's a false positive.

Re: LL BWA Entries

The entries that made the list are lamer each season. Also, my brazenly targeted attempt of "Amelia Bedelia and Thorsten Integrity" (for the Victoria and Albert Museum question) did not succeed. I gave my votes to Key Your Car, Tax Evasion, and David Byrne, the only ones that made my facial muscles...

I think I did catch some drag racing that involved actual female drivers That's likely the best example of a truly mixed league. You've got the Force sisters (although I think only Brittany is still racing), Erica Enders-Stevens, Alexis deJoria, and of course Cha-Cha Muldowney who have all won race...
