Re: Friday, November 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was unaware that melli->honey, but I had enough sense to think of another melli- word: mellifluous. Hmmm - something sweet - honey is sweet - oh, honey badgers were a thing a few years ago - got nothing better so down it goes.

Solid group of finalists. It should be an entertaining couple of games.

The box could be "European Rivers" for $1 and I would still flail. Wrote Rhine and Rhone just to have something. Rivers in general are definitely something I need to bone up on.

Re: TD 400 - RR (Q1-Q5 revealed)

Check Tybalteon's score for Q4: you either gave him 7 points for a DROP or mistyped his SHEEP.

Never heard of the Stone of Scone. Took a WAG and wrote Ark of the Covenant (thinking that a legend doesn't necessarily have to be accurate).

Re: TD 399 -- Halloween-ish Quiz - Scores through Q2 and Bonus

As a joke I wrote "None of the responses have the letter Z in them" and it turns out that two of them do. Geez, I can't even smart off correctly.

Precalled Beowolf (WECIB?) and submitted as my answer, even though I was 90% sure that was not the name of the creature. I've heard Grendel but would never have been able to pull it.

I was never getting this FJ. Warm-weather retreat made me think of summer and of more comfortable northern climes during that time of year. Many thanks to you. I thought I was the only one who read this clue this way. I thought the wording could be interpreted either way, 1) a place in warm weather...

FWIW, I pronounce the L in all of those words except for Calf.

Also FWIW, at times I can be insufferably pedantic.

Poll request for how many mistook "hyphenates" to mean someone with a hyphenated name.

I did, but in retrospect the other meaning is perfectly obvious. All I could come up with was Day-Lewis and would not have written it down, as I knew he has won many Oscars.

Looks like Confucius is a solid sheep. I contributed as well, after a brief consideration of Lao Tzu.

Lavoisier (with near-zero confidence). Post-game research shows me that he died by guillotine, so at least there is a connection.

Looking forward to another season of "It could be literally any Greek philosopher who developed the Socratic Method and was executed by drinking hemlock". ;)
