Re: LL83: Learned League

Somehow ended up with the highest score out of B and C Prairie on the MSC. Went for an unsure guess on Hudson River (don't know where I pulled that one from). Went for 'hot dog' on Q3 based on the 'not a sandwich' line. And what was Q4 about? Something that adds up to the Union Jack is what I surmi...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Good to see that cmp146 got the prussic acid question correct (and got 2 points for it!). Shoutout to Professor Pruss who is now leading A Magnolia! If her opponents keep defending her like that (zero for Soul Train?) she will keep winning. I don't get it, what's wrong with zero for Soul Train? It ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I had nothing better than isosceles, which I’d only ever seen in the context of triangles Math is my strongest category and this was still an educated guess for me — I figured if you extended the non-parallel sides, you'd get an isosceles triangle. Normally I'll stick 3 on any math question I'm uns...

Woohoo! That might be a first for me -- a true Buckner of 7(3)-6(5). I should have known Colombia, but went with Peru since it kind of wraps around Ecuador. I should have known Hoover, but there was no way I was getting ramekin; went with casserole. Congrats! I went with Venezuela instead of Colomb...

Re: Besides Ken, Brad, and James, what other contestants could be considered GOAT?

The bottom line to me is that they have invited back 3 white male millionaires-from-trivia to win more millions. They are undoubtedly the three strongest/luckiest (with varying combinations of luck and strength) to have played. It will be amazing trivia, but I like seeing new people on the show sur...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

After Larissa Kelly, Alex Jacob and Matt Jackson all looked amazing at the all-star tournament, I'm disappointed that we have Brad and Ken again. Brad and Ken are great, but I think any of the uninvited three could win a tournament of them + Brad, Ken and James.

Said Lamentations since it kindasortmaybe fit the other part of the clue.
That was my WAG, too.
It was a lamentable guess.
My bad guess too....

Though I just learned now that the book is "The Lamentations of Jeremiah"... Closer even than I thought.

Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

28.8k Coryat for me. 5 negs in SJ - ugh, but turned it around in DJ. Missed Final: said "Lamentations" , which was at least in the ballpark as a definition. "The old testament" is a nightmare category for me. In a two-day affair like this, I might bet zero if that category came up. James is so fast ...

$5600 in LT, but missed the diamond DD and 4 negs worth $2800 in there. Casting no stones here, as the King James Bible might say.

Dhruv kept going to the math category, but it wasn't kind to him.

Oof, tough game. My Coryat tells me I won't be doing great on the 4th podium poll.

Emma is fast and accurate - deadly. Kyle was great fun to watch. Poor Dhruv needed to keep clam, but needed to catch up and was in trouble from the start.
