Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 9, 2019

Wasn't my best showing, but I'm sleep deprived and on pain meds. Irritated at myself for getting that before and after a second too late, but I did get there. No biggie, there will be more tests.

Instaget. 2000+top game show=WWTBAM. Survivor started that year, but it is paired with the emerging reality shows of that era (Amazing Race, Bachelor, etc), not the game shows (Weakest Link, Deal or Deal, etc). but it didnt say "game show" in the clue You're right, not sure how I jumped to that.

Re: Thursday, November 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As a kid of the 80s FJ! was an instaget. I never found it scary in the monster movie sense (as in, ET himself wasn't scary), but the parts where government step in were very upsetting to me when I was young.

Guessed Mars, because I know it has several named features. I thought Pluto was booted out of the solar system about 10 years ago.
Status was demoted (and maybe reinstated?). Location hasn't changed.

I have a chess piece tattooed on my arm (not the malka or the reinha) so I wouldn't have forgiven myself for missing this one.

Rainha (right or wrong) led me to royalty because it seemed to be the similar to the Spanish word Rey (and I guessed Rainha was Portuguese). From there the feminine ending led me to queen. 2/3
Spanish for queen is reina. So good logic.

90s kids know that the real What Would You Do? was hosted by Marc Summers. John Quinones is an imposter!

I forgot about that show! My inner 90s teen (apparently I had just turned 13 when it came out) thanks you.

When i see the word "Dahomey" i sing "Namibia", then finish the Animaniacs Nations of the World song.
Did you get a chance to see Animaniacs Live in Arlington a few months back? It was a ton of fun.
That was a thing? No way! I would have!

Rats! I’m down to 33% on the FJ! clues as I went for the one alphabetically first. Unlike yesterday I expect some company on my miss. Nice job by the gentlemen to make the clue go 66%.
You do. I didn't have a way to tease it out so Atlantis=ocean location made more sense than anything else.

When I saw the word "Dahomey", I immediately began trying to remember whether it was Benin or Togo. As it turns out, matters were much simpler.

came home just in time for the final clue. No one remembered Ross Perot is from Texas? :o
That was really unexpected. The elder Ross Perot was born and raised in Texarkana, then moved to Dallas and raised his family here. The family's name is on our outstanding science and nature museum.

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

My 18 months expired last week. Nothing within driving distance, but maybe I'll do the 1.5 hour flight to New Orleans or St Louis.

I was surprised to see a viral meme/game/challenge show up as a category. For those not familiar with The Floor is Lava, it started off as a children's game where someone yells out that the floor is lava and kids run around until they find a space above ground to escape. In the age of cell phones an...

I saw the show last New Year's Eve so it's been on my mind. It is brilliant, no matter what your view on religion.
