The Soviet Union did not declare war on Japan until August 9, 1945, which also happened to be the day the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.
Which is why Japan can’t sign a treaty with the country it was at war with, since it no longer exists.

Funnily enough, if you gave me Torricelli I would have gotten barometer for his invention, but I couldn't get from the invention to the inventor.

Re: Friday, November 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I’m really puzzled over the anguish and the triple stumper on this clue. I grew up in an Episcopal church with some Catholic family members in the Northeast. The clue led me immediately to Pentecost (although when I was a kid it was called Whitsunday) and Pentecostalism, without thinking whether it ...

I uneasily went with Spade. Couldn’t match him with a wife or lumbermill, but Nick Charles was too far off my radar screen to come up with. Also think of him as a movie character, not from books.

NHO comma splice and missed bead. Luckily Classical Music and British stuff are wheelhouse categories for me, by J! Standards at least.

I thought the classical music questions fairly easy.

Figured the elevation meant Colorado, and happened to know of Leadville from bike and road racing, so was able to make the connection fairly quickly. I can see though how many people would never have heard of it.

Not quite an instaget FJ for me, but less than 5 seconds. Thought process was: 1. African countries with undemocratic leadership (okay, there are lots of them, don't try to list them all) 2. One that had a long-term dictator who lost power in the last couple years? Mugabe - Zimbabwe. Colonial power...

Re: Thursday, September 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The street in the Hull House clue is a well known Chicago street. [citation needed] "Halsted Street" has zero Archive hits. I wouldn’t say it was a slam dunk TOM, but it was the TOM in the clue. It is one of the major north/south street in downtown Chicago, whether it’s in the archive or not.

What was the TOM for Chicago on Hull House for $200? New York seemed like a far more cromulent guess on a big city known for immigrants. . . . This was a very obtuse FJ! Rubik's Cube just didn't seem to fit "3D problems" whatsoever, nor have I ever thought of it as a toy or game. LEGO seemed a far ...

Had no idea the song went back that far, but lived in Quebec for a few years and immediately recognized St Jean Baptiste. Also what other country would have a “Sir” with so many other French references in the clue?
