Coryat: 46,000 52 R/1 W DD: 3/3 FJ: :mrgreen: LT: flagellum, Alexander Pope, X, N, Thermopylae I don't know if I would have gotten this FJ! if not for the fact that I have an 8-year-old daughter. I think I have seen the entirety of the Tinker Bell and the... series of films. It's unfortunate that Je...

Alas, missing the "wandered" TOM on DD1 put her in too deep a hole to climb out of. I should recognize Clyde Tombaugh's name by now, particularly given that I learned earlier this ...

Re: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For the wristwatch/smartwatch controversy, I'd say that "wristwatch" would need a BMS since the clue said the watch name had the word "connected" in it. I doubt many (if any) ordinary wristwatches are connected to the 'net in the way a smartwatch is. The question is not whether "smartwatch" is a mo...
