Re: FJs for the 5/14/18 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :( :( :mrgreen: Pscoliosis to have something. Lost the Chandler/Hammett coin flip. Got Trojan Horse by focusing more on Ulysses and Menelaus. Until it clicked, I thought “tall as a mountain, ribbed with pine” referred to them. No clue on basking shark.

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.

Endeavor, basically chosen at random from the five space shuttles I could name. I forgot about Atlantis, which I probably would have guessed otherwise.

Re: Monday, April 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had no idea who it was, and while I knew somewhere in the back of my mind that he was Attorney General, I said State as soon as Alex said who he was. (No idea if I'd have dredged it up on my own if I recognized him in the picture.) I had guessed Treasury to have something.

Rolling Stones; as soon as the music ended I realized it was the Beatles and immediately came up with the two songs, but by then it was too late.

Switzerland, minotaur (winning the doomed coin flip over sphinx).

No preemptions here; the show airs when CBS hands things over to local stations for news, etc. in the afternoon here.

I went back and forth between the contestants' two answers, not happy with either but unable to come up with anything else. I eventually settled on minotaur.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), March 7, 2018

From video: Started off rough, with me being certain on only 2 of the first 7 (plus guessing liver and "I have no clue if it's not Marie Antoinette" both working out), but after that I did better, and after #22 the only one I missed was losing the Gershwin coinflip at #40 for a total of 42 correct.
