Lee never occurred to me. Never would have thought he was in 40 movies.

Voted in the Penguin poll.

Considered grasshoppers and killer bees, but couldn’t figure out why anyone would put them on a license plate, so clammed.

Re: Monday, October 12, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

While I know about butterflies wintering in Mexico, the state name meant nothing to me and the mention of 2010 seemed to be pointing to a specific event that caused the insects to be put on license plates. I drew a complete blank.

I really think the writers need to have a moratorium on the use of that book for FJ.

Coryat $38600 (48R, 2W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: Had Moody's instead of S&P, not sure how I would have gotten it without flat remembering which one it was.

Re: Thursday, October 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe a case of knowing too much, the FJ clue led me immediately to “Edda”, which I knew was wrong, but I couldn’t get to an alternative in time.

Re: Fun with NBC's "The Weakest Link"

So apparently, the contestants are from all across America and not just from California. It's entirely possible that they were saying where they were originally from, rather than the California location where they live now. The Tom Brady question pegs the filming at sometime after mid April, so thi...

Re: Monday, September 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I found this FJ confusingly written too. I first thought they were looking for names of African countries, then figured they were looking for who controlled what were colonies at the time. Once I got that, the answer was automatic.

As a golf fan, I knew Phil was around 50, and my recollection of the news about his participation in his first Senior event a few weeks ago cemented it. My only doubt was whether he was in the top 100, but of course his earnings are from endorsements, not winnings these days.

I played FJ off the Clue of the Day and said Thailand, then googled the book title and came up with India. Very relieved when I actually watched the show.

Re: Monday, September 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was anyone else thrown for a loop on "It's where the sub-zero goes"? Yes. I had never heard of a sub-zero (or, Sub-Zero, as it is apparently a brand name) before. I thought maybe it was one of those deep-freezers, so I put it in the garage. Ideal range for a freezer is around 0 to 5F, so I don't kn...

Did I miss something with allowing the Sirius XM Radio answer while not in the form of a question?
After just saying "Sirius XM", she kinda mumbled, "Is it Sirius XM?"
OK. I thought I heard her sort of stutter “Si-Sirius XM Radio” the second time.
