i did very badly - only got two answers right and didn't money one of them because it was a lucky guess

na (NA), Monday, 7 November 2022 15:28 (one year ago) link

Good luck everyone!

Rabbity Gainsborough (Leee), Monday, 7 November 2022 18:10 (one year ago) link

In the new season? Thanks!

There's a new pronouns section available!

mookieproof, Friday, 11 November 2022 18:57 (one year ago) link

argh, didn't even occur to me

Me neither! In fact in another context someone mentioned the below show recently which led to my wrong answer:

i also wrote larva, even as i knew it was wrong

The cardinal rule is to not leave it blank so writing a known wrong answer, while extremely painful, is still the done thing.

Y'all need to read more Lacan* if LJ is your way into imago!

* Actually on't read Lacan.

getting absolutely crushed this season

a bit of bad luck, but mostly just not knowing the answers

The original is still the greatest though:

Don't know what that picture is doing there though.

My ego has taken a real bruising as I've gone 0-3 on Math questions this season. On the plus side, I'm still mid-table, even though there's 1 point separating me from the relegation zone (not factoring in tiebreakers).

Rabbity Gainsborough (Leee), Thursday, 8 December 2022 18:54 (one year ago) link

My ego has…don’t quite know how to finish this sentence.

Enjoying working on my 1DS this weekend.

Silby and I did pretty well on Buster Keaton.

Cry for a Shadowgraph (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 24 January 2023 17:10 (one year ago) link

Now that I think of it, the first time I saw The General was at Silby's alma mater.

Cry for a Shadowgraph (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 24 January 2023 17:10 (one year ago) link

I've had some awful moneying this 1DS season -- off the top of my head, I've played at least 2 where I ended < 50%ile but could've finished as high as the 80th.

That said, congrats to Greg for winning one recently!

John Mayer McCheese (Leee), Friday, 27 January 2023 01:03 (one year ago) link

yeah nice bird knowledge!

Piven After Midnight (The Yellow Kid), Friday, 27 January 2023 04:48 (one year ago) link

If everything goes well with today's, I'll be in the Pop Culture Philosophy finals! Which is surprising to me, since I consider myself to be very bad at reading philosophy!

John Mayer McCheese (Leee), Thursday, 2 February 2023 19:58 (one year ago) link

I will probably be a frustrating 3rd in my group sadly

G. D’Arcy Cheesewright (silby), Thursday, 2 February 2023 20:10 (one year ago) link

I forgot to register for that one. Looked good.

And Your Borad Can Zing (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 2 February 2023 20:50 (one year ago) link

Not doing great in the one I am in. Cross Town Traffic or whatever it is called.

And Your Borad Can Zing (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 2 February 2023 20:55 (one year ago) link

Greg monied a bit better than I did and beat me on Bubblegum.

three weeks pass...

Halfway point and not only am I above 0.500 but I'm also in the top 10, which just means there's a lot more room for me to fall.

Shartreuse (Leee), Saturday, 4 March 2023 17:40 (one year ago) link

Yesterday was big beer day.

Think Fast, Mr. Mojo Risin’ (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 16 March 2023 11:09 (one year ago) link

Not for me! (I missed thiamine.) In fact, I haven't scored a single 6/6 all season. If that holds, it would be the first season since LL63 in 2014 in which I didn't get at least one. Luckily, I've had plenty of 5/6 days and am in the middle of the pack as usual.

jaymc, Thursday, 16 March 2023 12:13 (one year ago) link

Well, my prediction is proving true, as I'm on a 6 game losing streak where half of the losses have been avoidable.

Shartreuse (Leee), Thursday, 16 March 2023 14:33 (one year ago) link

i've been doing better than usual this season, though i've been frustratingly stuck at fourth place for a while

na (NA), Thursday, 16 March 2023 14:46 (one year ago) link

I was in the 92nd percentile for the Urban Planning one-day, which sounds good until I tell you I was the librarian for the American Planning Association for six years.

I really lucked out and somehow made it into the Latinx finals.

Cashews Everything Around Me (Leee), Tuesday, 16 May 2023 16:47 (ten months ago) link

Me too! I played all three MLs, and I would not have guessed that would be the one I'd do best in.

jaymc, Tuesday, 16 May 2023 17:13 (ten months ago) link

i wished i had joined the latinx and midwest ones, i wouldn't have done too badly! i somehow limped into the lgbt finals and got absolutely bodied though, like bottom 50

through 21 matches i have 101 CAA

the top TCA-scorer in my rundle has gotten 100 right

ffs

mookieproof, Thursday, 22 June 2023 19:20 (nine months ago) link

Not sure how it happened, but I'm sitting at the top of an A rundle for the first time ever this late in the season. I think maybe the league that I was moved into last season (along with Leee and NA) is a little less competitive? Anyway, I've probably jinxed it by mentioning it, but still crossing my fingers.

jaymc, Thursday, 22 June 2023 19:33 (nine months ago) link

Rooting for you from the cheap seats in the middle of C, jaymc.

Holly Godarkbloom (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 22 June 2023 19:50 (nine months ago) link

xp nice!

mookieproof, Thursday, 22 June 2023 19:53 (nine months ago) link

I think maybe the league that I was moved into last season (along with Leee and NA) is a little less competitive?

That's sort of my take, mainly because our placement in the last MSC was pretty bad (with the caveat of course that not everyone plays it). Then again, I have a TCA > CAA only because I've benefited from THREE forfeit wins this season, so maybe we're just in a less dedicated league?

Cashews Everything Around Me (Leee), Thursday, 22 June 2023 20:15 (nine months ago) link

Congrats to jaymc!

Last of the Mojitos (Leee), Wednesday, 28 June 2023 14:27 (nine months ago) link

Oh yeah, see that now. Congrats, jaymc!

Thank u! Looking forward to the championship.

Go jaymc wd!!

anatol_merklich, Wednesday, 28 June 2023 22:00 (nine months ago) link

ended up with 122 CAA

of the 28,830 players, only 65 had higher

mookieproof, Wednesday, 28 June 2023 23:32 (nine months ago) link

hell yeah! my all-time best is 120 but I only finished 8th that season.
