So it's not out of the question that Alex knew what the wagers were when he made the comment. --Bobjeff6286 wrote:After Alex's silly little speech pointing out that Margaret still had a chance, my reaction was "No she doesn't! Didn't you see David's perfect wager from second place last Thursday? That was the only game he has trailed in, and the only FJ that he has missed in his 5 games, but he knew exactly how to wager from second place to win on the triple stumper, so I'm afraid Margaret has no chance in this one." How wrong I was and how prescient Alex turned out to be.

And if he lost he'd have had nearly $8,000 - enough to win in this instance.

Let's see ... Petra? Kaaba? Hagia Sophia? Dome of the Rock? OK, we'll go with the Kaaba. What? Taj Mahal!?!? Oh, crud. Didn't even wander over that direction.

They had six more after Waiting, which spent a then-record 10 weeks at #2 in 1981-82.

Yes, I am very put out by them. Do you think they come to lurk here? Libros por Niños means "Books by Children." What they should have written is LIBROS PARA NIÑOS.
Rant finished. I guessed the Blue Mosque.
