Re: LL Season 93

What I've seen is fluid mechanics 1 & 2 for undergraduates and then for the graduate program they separate it into hydrodynamics and aerodynamics. But they call it different things, hydrodynamics and aerodynamics, Advanced Fluid Mechanics 1 & 2, or incompressible flow and compressible flow. ...

Congrats to Mattea for a great run.

Futurama definitely helped me get FJ correct. The clip doesn't mention it but the name of the busiest airport in the US is fair game.

Re: Thursday, April 28, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Scorpio earrings for Mattea today in addition to the scorpion tattoo.

I wrote "1,001 Arabian Nights" and I've decided to count it. I'll try to respond with just Arabian Nights in the future.

Oh dang, were Scantrons distributed for this apparent first-grade reading comprehension exam?
Of course not. They can't put that question on an exam in Florida.

John Cabot was a triple stumper. The clue gave a hint by mentioning a 1496 explorer that had Sebastian as a son. Sebastian Cabot's other parent was Mattea.

Usually I'm pretty good with presidents but that category was tough for me.

I was trying to avoid spoilers while waiting for No Way Home to become available to rent. I guess Andrew Garfield is in it though.

I missed FJ with "Who is Dracula?" instead of the correct question "Where did Dracula prowl?"
