WAGERS; WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND

I only ever bet on vocabulary questions.
I do pretty well, but I cant forget those questions that I got wrong.
One of them (lets not be too specific) involved flags....
Today I bet the max on a vocab question --and got the SAME question.
It might not literally have been the same but it linked the same flag related concept to a particular word.
I'm pleased to say that this time I got it right (having been brooding on it for two years!)
I feel confident that the third time around I'll be even faster!
Has anyone had this experience before?

Barry

I've never had the same question twice, but I have felt like a morose moronic loser, if that is the bonding you seek.

I only wager on Sports Soup and I'd like to get another crack at some of my dumba$$ questions on those.

A couple of weeks ago I had a TQotD that was the same
question I had as a showdown question earlier this year.

Barry, I've been..vexed...to get that particular question twice and asked the same thing, but it was actually 2 different questions.

Totally unrelated to this threat but, Smaug - I just realized that your avatar looks smaller in size than it used to before we came to 2.0. Is that just my imagination?

I got field hockey and LaCrosse mixed up the same way twice. Two different questions, same answers. Duh !!!

Speaking about coincidences Barry, as I was doing today’s Trivia Question, I thought I might live dangerously, and gamble a Wager Token on the next vocabulary question that arises. (It will be my first Wager so maybe beginner s ‘luck etc!)

You're sitting on 30-plus wager tokens!? Egads!

Something is amiss here! My response about
30 wager tokens doesn't make sense anymore
because there's a post either missing or changed.

How does that happen?

Hey, I just got out of a cold pool. Women know about that, right?

I haven't been living right because my past two Movie & Television wager questions have both been "year of release" questions. The only thing worse is reality show info.

Praetorian....Don't know what your post "XXXX" means????
Just read your profile - in the age section you wrote "retrograde"
Does that mean you are counting backwards????

Well, I was going to say something about wagers and showdowns but when I saw the name Smaug, I shut myself up by posting XXX, this is 30 in Roman numerals I think, because I wanted to get a thirtieth post up and XXX was the first thing that popped into my head (something to do with kissing?). Smaug please don't hurt your eyes reading this but this thread entertained me thus I could not resist.

Man alive this place is hard to climb the ladder after a while! .. I finally broke top 200 a few weeks back, now I'm balancing there - even with winning wagers and/or showdowns. I just won a showdown that moved me only 3 spots on the ladder .. and the showdown was worth over 17M. I'm back in the top 200 - just barely - with 1 level point to go and a vocab question in the waiting. I'd say watch out to those at the very top but, I'm sure it'll take me another year or two to get there lmao :D

Happy Day all!

you think that's tough?
There's some cut-throat competition going on round about 40 billion. Its not like you WANT tuzilla to blow a wager...but it couldn't hurt.

I remember when I was first here, 5000 seemed like a BIG deal
Then I was astonished when someone won 100,000 in one day
Now I bet nearly 1 million each time I get a Wager token
And you are talking bets in the BILLIONS....
Where does it all end????
When we reach a gazillion nanogillions????
