To add to IronNeck's anecdotal evidence, my wife knew King John and she doesn't get that many clues herself.

I got FJ from the Mars moon angle. I'm unfamiliar with the actual story.

Far better known songs by Sly and the Family Stone are Hot Fun in the Summertime and Thank You (Falettin Me Be Mice Elf).

Re: Monday, May 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Yeah, I'll take under age 54 as well. I'll even take under age 34. How could 1964 as Josh's birth year even be up for discussion? Exactly how small is the viewing device? Wow, really? I would give you at least 5 to 1 odds that Josh is not under 40. Really? I'd guess he's in his mid '30s. I assumed ...

Re: HQ Trivia

It's a reward for reaching Q5 last night. This is the first time I've ever seen HQ use an expiring Extra Life, so I'm guessing it's an experiment to see if it drives off-night participation. Or to depress the total winning amounts so fewer people can reach the cash-out threshold. Unless they change...

Re: HQ Trivia

A while back, I attempted to take the money and run from Cash Show. After a few days of review, they authorized the claim, but, due to some mysterious discrepancy with e-mail/user name/whatever, I'm unable to collect. Then Pay Pal sends me an e-mail entirely in Chinese that tells me to collect, or ...

Re: Monday, May 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got FJ within several seconds, having visited Harpers Ferry several years ago. It's gorgeous. There was a somewhat hidden TOM in there - the word "today". It was reasonable to assume that it was in a then-existing state, and where else have the boundaries changed over time but in what's now West V...

Re: Monday, May 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, they ALMOST got all the Bible clues correct. The writers, I mean. David is not said to be the author of the book of Psalms. Rabbinic tradition says he assembled the book, including his own psalms as well as psalms from previous generations. I'm not aware of any tradition or scholarly argument...

Then there's the occasional person who wants to put raisins in potato salad. That sure seems to ruffle feathers.
I'm pretty sure that's illegal.

Re: HQ Trivia

I got a notification today that I had received an extra life for tonight's game. I've been playing for 2-3 months and have never had an extra life. Is this something everybody gets? Is it a reward for getting through most of the Sunday night game? Just random?

Re: HQ Trivia

Tonight's big game makes me wonder what could have been. I got knocked out at question 10, going with Cuba over Sri Lanka despite Sri Lanka being my gut. I don't know what I would have guessed on the Dogs Playing Poker at 11 (I was too busy being pissed at myself), but 12 was wheelhouse (baseball), ...

Re: You guys are obsessed over wagering way too much.

I'm personally not very interested in wagering but it's a major part of the game so should be fair game for discussion.

"Pine" was what gave it to me.
"Ribbed" made me think of Trojan.
Good one. Did the writers do that for their pleasure?
You know, I also thought it seemed a little harsh to describe Athena's womb as “tall as a mountain, ribbed with pine” :D
Had she been a Spartan, though...

This reminds me about the old local urban legend about the headlines produced when Topeka High School (the Trojans) played football against crosstown rivals Seaman Academy.
