Stuck with Truman instead of switching to (Teddy) Roosevelt; switched from The Hunt for Red October to Jaws at the last second.
Have seen the movie Jaws but not read the book.

Re: Wednesday, July 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ugh, I went with The Wiz for FJ. 0/3 this week. Is there anything wrong with that answer? I sure don't see it. Edit: Ok, I guess what's wrong is that "Wicked" is based on Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West , and "The Wiz" has nothing to do with that book. Still, I think "ins...

Re: Wednesday, July 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Based on the category, I would have bet $0 in a second-place tie here and been right to do so because I had not a clue. I knew the huge festival was Woodstock, but that got me nothing and so I went with the first name that came to mind, The Who (minus Keith Moon), which looking at Wikipedia seems to...

Saudi Arabia as a desperation guess. The "dh" comes at the end of Riyadh, but it was the best I had.

Re: Your guess for Thursday's FJ [SPOILER]

Wavered between Gemini and Pisces, and went with Pisces because I could see fish on strings being a constellation, and also because I'm a Pisces (ish) and would rather be wrong guessing my own sign that missing my own sign.

I thought I was going to end up identifying the TOM (40th day of Easter Season = Ascension) and not getting the island name right because I'd never heard of it. But I went with Ascension Island rather than trying to puzzle out what it would be in Portuguese, and fortunately that was right. That is, ...

Re: Thursday, May 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I tried to make "fittingly" apply to "twenty."
I tried to make it apply to "2015."
Making it apply to "Euro" didn't cross my mind.
(I was playing off the Clue of the Day, so I didn't have the image, not that it would have helped.)
I guessed Hera.

Vauxhall Cross; no answer.

I considered Chicago but two Oscars is a pretty light haul for a Best Picture so I continued on west.

On the show, I might have been tempted to do something with my middle finger, but not at home.

The only 90s London landmarks I could think of were Vauxhall Cross and the London Eye, and the former at least has a roof.

Re: 5/3/18 FJ Poll [SPOILER!]

37, never seen it. I've seen clips (particularly, I remember watching AFI's "100 Years, 100 Quotes" where it was well represented), but I don't think that should count enough to say "parts, maybe."

Got the clue right, though.
