The north/south bit of the border between Alabama and Florida is the Perdido RIver, but is not marked.

Re: Tuesday, May 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game highlights one of my pet peeves. In the designation of bills "H.R" does not stand for "House Resolution"; it stands for "House of Representatives". This should be obvious from the fact that Senate bills are called simply, e.g. "S.252", and not "S.R. 252"

Did Martha Stewart ever see an episode the show before this?

I would have known this FJ! in 1985, and I would have known this FJ! when I was 10 years old. But my father was a corporate attorney for a Fortune 500 company incorporated in Delaware. :)

HALF-STUPID ANSWERS The two US state capital cities whose flags contain images of a phoenix. I like this. I got the easy (stupid) one, and whiffed on the other part, by forgetting the "state capital" part of the clue (RTFC!). I guessed San Francisco which does have a phoenix on its flag, but of cou...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

i checked the box for "I sometimes wear a face covering in public." I don't wear a mask when I go for a walk around the block, but I always do on the very rare occasions when I go somewhere where I can't avoid other people.

Re: FJs for the 6/8/20 week

I had to play from mid-March to mid-May from the Archive. I'm assuming that doesn't count for "having seen" those games.

I think I scored an even 12,000 from the fourth podium and I got final correct as well.

Oh, yeah, and I got St Erasmus and the House official, too.

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES Two different Democratic nominees born in this state lost consecutive presidential elections in the second half of the 20th century. I like it. But, dang, while I had the right two candidates, I went with the wrong state. (Instead of one moving east I guessed the other moved...

Do we really need this, now or ever?
What, the reunion itself, or someone telling you that it was gonna be this way?
This thread's a joke.

I wondered if any players would guess Elvis If the clue had been simply: '"In July 26, 1972 he testified before a Senate subcommittee" I would have said Presley. But adding "on national penitentiaries" made it a Cash giveaway. ;) I've already deleted the game from my DVR. Did the clue really start ...
