Has to be the capital of Canada, which is Quebec. :oops:
Duh, everybody knows the capital of Canada is Montreal! :oops: :oops:
It's too bad that there wasn't a Quebec separatist on to protest this FJ since Canada's rightful capital is Gatineau.

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I remember playing that game when I was really little, and my aunt being surprised that I knew who Menachem Begin was, when at the time, I didn't, but had seen the name written somewhere before that.

Re: Friday, January 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Anybody go with Algeria? I was mentally debating between the two before settling on Egypt. That's what I probably would've gone with if it hadn't been that I had recalled how surprised I was at the population of Egypt when I flipped a coin between Myanmar and South Korea on an FJ about the most pop...

Re: Wednesday, January 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I guess that knowing the current list of senators isn't something that gets asked in trivia as much as it used to, but I still try to keep up with them anyway, so I got FJ right. I thought that Gilbert was going to win in a big runaway the way that he was playing early on, but Lindsay and Flora pers...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

That was the last one from a past season in the 21st century that needed to be entered, right? Congratulations on that.

Given how many times I had been a TA for an "Astronomy for non-science majors" class, I'm ticked I didn't get Eta Carinae.

WDTN cut in after the Steelers game with four clues to go on the first board. FJ was an instaget.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

WLT Ethel Merman? Why would anyone be able to dissect a critique from almost 60 years ago to lead to one specific person, since different people have different opinions of everybody. I totally don't understand it. And no, I'm not trying to get a "Cat Hammarskjold education" thread started. I'm just ...

Fantastic game, you absolutely mopped the floor with the wheel! I make no exaggeration when I say that's one of the best performances I can recall. J may not be for everyone but you've clearly found your game. I must say I'm absolutely green with envy, and hope I too can gt on Wheel someday. They s...

Re: FJs for the 12/4/17 week

I have heard of the Congress of Vienna and Mariska Hargitay before, but all I could come up with in the 30 seconds were "the gathering of the Quadruple Alliance after Napoleon's defeat" and "someone from Law and Order: SVU". I hadn't known that iridium was named after the rainbow and thought chromiu...

I do wish your winnings hadn’t been so prize heavy as that causes big tax issues unless you sell the car. X2 I was dissapointed that you got the car instead of $35,000. Even more so when it was revealed the price of the car was less than $30,000. If it was me, I would much rather have cash instead ...

They stopped having returning champions on Wheel of Fortune? I guess that shows how long it's been since I've watched. It's been 20 years since there's been any sort of returning champion on Wheel That's about when I stopped watching regularly. I think that after WHIO dropped J!, WKEF ran it agains...

Myron, you also participate in the Only Connect Questions group on Facebook. Three or four weeks ago, I did an R1 with the four countries that were entirely south of the Tropic of Capricorn.
