me (2:32:38 PM): i think we were super obnoxious as hosts
me (2:32:50 PM): but not obnoxious enough because some people liked us
dave: (2:32:52 PM): that's what pete said
dave (2:32:58 PM): that's also what he said
me (2:32:57 PM): did he tell you the flipper thing?
me (2:33:03 PM): it was pretty funny
dave (2:33:04 PM): he said two people got it right
dave (2:33:10 PM): probably just cuz you shout flipper every week
me (2:33:42 PM): oh no, not that part - this one team was handing in their music round answer sheet and was like "what happened to the flipper round? we studied the wikipedia page all day!"
me (2:33:52 PM): and i looked down at their answer sheet and realized they'd gotten the flipper question wrong
dave (2:34:10 PM): haha
dave (2:34:21 PM): you gave them a bonus point?
me (2:34:36 PM): no, it gets better
me (2:35:03 PM): at the bar later they were like "you guys were totally great hosts, but we were so ready for a flipper round. we knew the years it was on, the cast, the plots...what happened?"

i think it's different in that no one can figure out how to register and log in.

a_p (a_p), Wednesday, 29 November 2006 14:57 (fourteen years ago) link

I don't even care that I'm having to detail my bullshit in the spreadsheet. It's just that I'd rather have a boss who has the fucking fortitude to come down and say to our faces "I'm getting rid of the incident response team, it's just as well anyway because I don't trust any of you people and I refuse to give you access to the tools you need to actually do your job, so it's not like anybody will miss them."

TOMBOT, Wednesday, 29 November 2006 15:04 (fourteen years ago) link

alex OTM, if you register you can never, ever change your settings and wtf should you register at all in that case. So it's a pain in a horse's ass to sit and try to wade through any of this.

Tom I don't understand a goddamn thing you are talking about.

Everyone, what do you think of people who are TOO STUPID TO READ YOUR E-MAIL SIGNATURE TO GET YOUR PHONE NUMBER???

Also, due to lack of registration abilities I am just randomly picking names I've used in the past thanks to saved forms function on firefox. ANYONE have any clue wtf this particular posting name is about????

Many of those photos are heart-wrenching. The Newseum is just so expensive.

Another Suburbanite, Tuesday, 20 December 2011 17:34 (nine years ago) link

i got a groupon a while ago! half price. i'd been waiting to go for a year and a half. but at $10 for 2 days, it's definitely worth it.

tehresa, Wednesday, 21 December 2011 02:47 (nine years ago) link

A friend of mine got the groupons and that's how I finally saw the place. But their regular rate is pricey imho for what they have--$20 something, and its $75 a year for a membership- it gets you a 5 percent discount on lunch at The Source by Wolfgang Puck and Advance notice of cutting-edge programs and other stuff

I like old buildings as much as anyone but that Ruined Capitol site is ridiculously one sided and would be better off without the copy.

Also phrases like "When we set out to replace our European and American architectural heritage" always set off warning bells for me like maybe the writer is trying to say something else...
