Re: Tuesday, October 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It would be Andorra. Aruba is a territory. At least per Wikipedia, Aruba is now a "constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands". Per the article about the Kingdom, there are four constituent countries: the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. In theory, all four are equal partner...

Got to love that "Who is Sean Connery" came up on the very first show!

Despite what John Denver might have told you, the Blue Ridge Mountains are not in West Virginia.
The USGS disagrees with you. See https://geonames.usgs.gov/apex/f?p=138: ... ue%20Ridge

Totally surprised they accepted "colors" without BMS'ing it.
"Show your colors" is more familiar to me than "show your true colors".

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

At an airport with a control tower, taxiing on a runway requires an explicit clearance to do so (e.g. if given a clearance to taxi without a route specified, the route is at pilot discretion but that discretion does not include taxiing on a runway). I pictured the action of taxiing to get to the sp...

And you can't exactly use 'taxiway' in a clue designed to prompt the response 'taxiing'
You can't but instead of "What a plane is doing moving down a runway, preparing for take-off", use "What a plane is doing heading to a runway, preparing for take-off".

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I feel an erratum should be added to the Gettysburg Address clue. The speech begins Four score, not fourscore, it is this way in virtually every online text and in pictures of Lincoln's speech itself. So by making Sarah change her response from "three" to "threescore", they were just plain wrong. T...

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Every once in a while, it seems the game writers think something is so obvious that no research is needed only to be wrong. Today it was in the double-vowel category with the clue "What a plane is doing moving down a runway, preparing for take-off". I could not come up with anything with a double-vo...

Instaget FJ for me but it’s my most recent show seen on Broadway. It was even my pre-call. While the movie may have not been well known, the musical just closed after an almost four-year Broadway run putting it 57th on the list of longest running Broadway shows.

Instaget knowing that 3M (as Alex partially said) was originally Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing. As for Mark starting to write MMM, that is the stock symbol so easy to see why it would come to mind.

It was in the red "Breaking News" bar at the top of their home page. It didn't specify when it aired so I assume it was at the regular time.

I saw it far too late to act upon the information. I now have 7-2 set to record every weekday at 3:30.
Thanks. Going to do the same.

Re: Wednesday, December 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

WLS-TV in Chicago normally shows a year-old rerun at 2:05am but will show the previous day's current show there if it was pre-empted. But yesterday, they pre-empted the new show and showed the year-old one at 2:05am. So no idea what they did with the 12/18 show. According to their web site, they sh...

Any reason I should know that Actors' Union is in New York and not any other random Eastern state?
Actors Equity represents stage actors. The pinnacle of stage acting is Broadway. Broadway is in New York.

Yes. After running a few things through my mind, it was the best fit to the clue.
