Welllllll.... I'm 60% of the way to the Box Of Shame.

Somehow, the description led me to a mountain, so I criss-crossed Greek and Roman and went with Olympus. :roll:

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

That movie question stumped me... I knew Wings , but didn't know the others. I kinda-sorta remember the existence of a movie called Crash , but only after being reminded by Scott's explanation. Spotlight ? No recollection of this title at all. Must be something from the last few years, I dunno. I pr...

I got FJ! correct while Alex was was still reading... This despite the fact I am *not* a movie nut, *never* watch the Oscars, and have never seen that flick. Highly-acclaimed movie with a city name for a title, a city named after someone associated with old transportation of some sort... I went down...

Little story related to the kittens/mittens...

Re: 5/3/18 FJ Poll [SPOILER!]

Can't really answer the 2nd part given the choices... I have definitely seen parts of it (didn't like and will never watch the whole thing) and I'm in the oldest age group. So, I can't truthfully say "I've NEVER seen it and in the oldest age group", or "I've seen it and am in the oldest age group". ...

Not a rock fan at all, but I have heard of Emerson Lake & Palmer. I just didn't pick up on what was meant by "middleman" until too late. I did guess correctly on Casablanca simply based on "title city" and a famous film... Googled afterward to see how and when Casablanca may have been liberated. No ...

Re: FJs for the 2/26/18 week

I'm a big sports fan, and dislike nearly all rock "music".

So how ironic is it that I nailed the Friday clue to keep me away from the Box Of Shame by knowing of the band Def Leppard?

Charles de Gaulle's time was also the time of that brief joke-book craze, Elephant Jokes. I had several... One of those was: Q: What does an elephant say to Charles de Gaulle? A: Nothing. Elephants don't speak French. I was maybe 6 years old when I first read that joke, and the reference sticks. De ...
