My hearing may be going, but I would swear Johanna left off “ what is” in her answer to the Newton question. I also thought she missed it on her Bell answer, but she might have muttered it under her breath.

I thought the reference to the Turkish town was pointing to a mythological connection, so I juggled between apricots, apples and pomegranates. Never thought of cherries, even though I was aware of the French word.

Got FJ by latching onto The Hague as a site for peace talks - I had no idea about detention camps. I dismissed Eastern European countries by mistakenly thinking the heritage site concept probably went back before those countries joined the EU.

Hamlet, although I should have realized it doesn’t have a prologue.

Never been to Augusta, but watch the Masters every year.

Saw the movie Amadeus, never saw the play

Never heard of Adventure Time

My high school class got to see Amadeus at the Cineplex down the street. Easy FJ.
I might have gotten this off the date and Vienna reference, but having seen Amadeus years ago sealed it on the poisoning part (which I had never heard of otherwise).

Jumped straight to Rubens when they were looking for David - did the clue specify French artist?
No, but the title included Napoleon, Josephine, and Notre Dame.
And Rubens died 130 years before Napoleon was born, anyway.

There's such a thing as a "GDP gross"? Isn't that what the G stands for? Can someone explain the thought process on that clue, because I don't get why it was reversed. You misheard the correction.

I guess I am the right age to have first been made aware of Ascension Island and its location as part of the news coverage of the Falklands War, in which it was a critical link in the logistics chain the UK used to supply forces in the war. “40 days” led me to Pentecost or Ascension, and from there ...

While I am familiar with the story of Zeus in the form of a bull abducting Europa, the idea that she might have borne any children has never occurred to me, so I was pretty lost on this one. I too would have put down Hera just to have something.
