Re: It Was a Long Time Coming

Fantastic - may you have many happy years together!

I especially like that when she asks you to do a project around the house you can look at her and say with a straight face "You do realize I currently have a 15 year backlog, right?"

If you care to share, is there any video online of the segment?

I knew this one, and it's not because I'm smart. I'm pretty sure this fact came up recently on the board although for the life of me I can't remember the context.

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

THE WEST COAST Approximately 750 feet separate the brass and terrazzo monuments to these two US presidents. Who are Reagan and Trump? (Hollywood Walk of Fame) I don't think I'd be off-base complaining about the choice of the word "monument" here. It struck me as odd too. But what word would you sug...

BILLBOARD CHARTS These two artists with the same first and last initials have each had eleven #1 albums on the Billboard 200 Who are Barbra Streisand and Bruce Springsteen?

Another distillation here, and when I detected Alex's pause I thought it was the expected response.

California for FJ!, although I could not come up with a possible third president. It didn't occur to me that presidential libraries are a fairly recent thing.

Math geek warning: No, you don't multiply by 2.54 to convert inches to centimeters. You multiply by (2.54 cm / 1 inch), which is a fraction equal to 1. Factor-label method...you cancel out the inches, and it leaves the cm. That way you never, ever get it wrong - if you multiply by (1 in/2.54 cm), y...

I don't think I've ever made a poll suggestion, but how about "finger and singer rhyme" vs. "finger and singer don't rhyme"?
Second that request.

"Finger" and "Singer" rhyme in German. Not in English.
Okay, somebody help me out - why don't finger and singer rhyme?

Re: Friday, May 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't have any problem with the wording of FJ, but I did not get it either. I kept fixating on Los/Las, recognized them as plural and took a leap thinking the country must be an island or archipelago and came up blank. The reveal was a big "duh, of course!" for me.

I'm not one to change my behavior because of the "optics" of a situation, but with 26 million people out of work it seems blindingly stupid to go on strike right now.

For 26 seconds I bounced back and forth between Pakistan and India, knowing full well they are both now pursuing nuclear agendas. Fortunately Japan sprung to mind with enough time to write it down. Seems obvious in hindsight. Got the gunpowder plot from my viewing of "V for Vendetta". I can't be the...

ETYMOLOGY This word coined in 1906 by Gelett Burgess in a short book is used to refer to sedate, boring expressions such as "Why, I know you better than you know yourself!", and is derived from a chemical element that was once used as an anticonvulsant medication. What is a bromide? My guess was pl...

I latched onto "Guayllabamba" as seeming vaguely Welsh and wondered "does Wales have swales"? Despite the awkwardness of trying to force the square peg swale into the round hole cartographic it was the best I could do.
