    I answered the first question correctly and was still booted. Stupid game and the announcer was annoying. She needed to be punched in the throat.

    First game tonight. Stupidly thought there was still a $1000 bill being printed.

    I made it to round 5. Definitely would have missed at least 2-3 more after that. Fun game but impossible to win anything of real value.

    Downloaded the app, but had to take my youngest to "It's Great to be Eight." Darn it, Primary leaders, I was probably going to win!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I'm guessing one of you guys won today. I went out on Q10, would have bet my life it was McDonalds.

    I thought McDonald's was too obvious, so I went with Starbucks.

    I definitely thought it was between those two. I was laughing inside that Subway was an option. Oops.

    I missed the Hall of Presidents questions, otherwise I'd have made it to Q11. But I'd have missed that one as well as 12. Oh well.

    For some reason, I haven't noticed any of HQ's notifications until after the games have started. Frustrating. Especially since I knew Subway had more franchise locations than McDonald's (presuming that was the question asked by the responses here). Probably would have missed other questions, though.

    My referral code is PeladoCS.

    Has been the case since the late 90s, yeah? I always assumed it was the direct result of overhead and franchising rights--much cheaper for a couple of bread ovens than all the machines you'd need to run a McDs.

    Not sure when they overtook McDonald's, but it could have been the 90s. I remember reading something about it in a Subway a while back.

    The only trivia I'm interested in, is Walter still punishing his kids by making them play these games?

    Ha. Both times I've played, my two daughters have participated with me. I'll have to shout out "THIS IS BULL CRAP!" the next time I get booted for a question with a seemingly obvious answer like the Renoir one tonight.

    Was talking with the Mrs. shortly after I arrived home and she mentioned having seen Jeopardy at someone else's house today (not something she typically chooses to watch). Reminded me about HQ, but I joined in too late. I would have missed at least two of the questions I saw, so it's not like I'm that upset. Maybe one of these times I'll actually notice the notification.

    That's too bad. I used "hostile1" as my referral code.
