Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks, alietr, for providing the context. If you asked 100 literate, well-educated people to copy-edit that passage, I suspect none would flag the "a." That in itself demonstrates that it's idiomatic English. It's a terrible sentence though. It meanders all over the place. The diagram would look r...

Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Truman was having a drink with Sam Rayburn when FDR died. FDR was in a cabin so his last presidential decisions were in a cabin. Don’t know if it was sweltering. I drive by Warm Springs yesterday (we are very close to the anniversary of his death) and it wasn’t very sweltering. Side note...highly re...

Much better performance today. Biggest improvement from the first to second day I have seen. Had I been on the show, the judges would have had to squint at my screen. I matched Chris by starting with T. Roosevelt and then figured it out right at the end and crossed out Teddy and scribbled LBJ. The m...

A little embarrassing to miss FJ when the correct response was literally right in front of you. (I know he spells his name differently than Fred, but it’s close).

Not all for this game, but about 20 correction suggestions from one person in less than 30 minutes. :roll:
Was one of them Scott is italicized in the DJ29 response? 😉

To the person who said he listens to audio of the show while driving...do not listen to this episode with this host if driving late at night or if you are very tired. Hopefully he shows more energy in the next nine episodes. JoBeth blew any chance of winning by going for the $400 Hemingway clue with...

The only oceanographic institute I know is Woods Hole and I was pretty sure that wasn't it. I followed two of the contestants with Hearst (although I wa...

Sure wonder why Jean decided to go almost all-in on FJ wagering, when her chances of snagging the win were right up there with my chances of being voted Miss America. But I guess it's her extra thousand bucks to piss away, not mine, so go for it. This unreasonably pissed me off. Wasn't it a lock ga...

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

I gave him a 7. He seemed to get better as he went on. My biggest problem for me was he seemed to go overboard in kissing everyone’s butt. The players are supersmart.

Today I learned that Angel Falls were named after a person. Isn't learning fun?
Same here. I never really thought about it but would have assumed it had some sort of religious connection. I got it right but it was one of those “put something down” things that paid off.
