Ha, me too, but I don’t think I mind that so much.

It's because yall can't resist my wiles.

Hah! Almost didn’t see your name!

I created another difficult one. Play at your own risk!

FWIW I would've gotten at most 2 questions in the metal MD1.

Heh, been doing this for so long I have a pretty good idea of how many will play and who will do well.

Interesting story about the extinct Celtic language from yesterday’s Metal ML.

Opened with a 9(6) and in first place, only one way to go from here.

Up, up and away?

James, I dismissed that as a bit of cheek at the time and yet after the first week I'm still undefeated! It's been an incredible run of luck with both the questions (my QvH is currently 129, which is pretty unsustainable) and opponents (lowest CAA).

nice work, Leee!

two weeks pass...

Well, I'm in the midst of my regression back to the mean!

Also, my OQL team played Greg's last week, but I wasn't in the lineup. Sorry to miss you!

I forgot to check yesterday, but I had a good feeling about my chances.

Meanwhile, I came in 93rd %ile in Butts.

(I forgot to submit the producers one!)

three weeks pass...

Finished first on the Comedy Bang Bang 1DS, this time shared with 22 (!) others.

Feel like that quiz could've been much harder than it was. A question about a Red Hot Chili Peppers parody song included an audio clip and asked what band the song was parodying. A question about the character of Dabney Coleperson included a photo of Dabney Coleman and said the character's name was "very similar...but with a gender neutral surname." Both questions very gettable without any familiarity with the podcast/TV show, which was slightly annoying because I would've gotten those right even without the extra hints.

i think one of my answers was misscored for that, it says i got andrew lloyd webber wrong but i'm pretty sure i would have gotten it. i'm not going to worry about it for a one-day though, i got another question wrong so i wouldn't have been at the top anyways.

na (NA), Friday, 26 April 2024 15:16 (three weeks ago) link

is there a way i can see my answers? i wonder if i had some kind of mental blip

na (NA), Friday, 26 April 2024 15:17 (three weeks ago) link

oh i found it. i put "webber" and it was marked wrong. was "lloyd webber" the required answer?

na (NA), Friday, 26 April 2024 15:18 (three weeks ago) link

i also found it pretty easy - i haven't listened to the podcast regularly in years, aside from the end-of-year best-ofs, so i expected it to be harder

na (NA), Friday, 26 April 2024 15:19 (three weeks ago) link

was "lloyd webber" the required answer?

I assume so. It's a double-barreled surname.
