Re: Friday, July 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was thrown by that clue too. I have allergies and was told that people are allergic to animal dander, not their hair This is correct... And it turns out that the dander in Maine Coons doesn't have much of whatever ingredient it is that causes the allergies, although I suppose there are exceptions...

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Box of shame avoided. Surprised that wasn't a triple get. This. I considered Silent Spring for maybe three seconds, but then remembered it was an early 60's book, from my many times shelving the thing in a non-fiction section while a student library assistant. This remembering book/author/subject f...

Re: Friday, July 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

One clue in the Cat category threw me off... The one that said that "Persian and Maine Coon are not the best for allergy sufferers" because they are longhairs. The problem is that Maine Coons don't cause the allergies to humans. Thus I was thrown far off base because I couldn't get past the glaring ...

...Somebody else somewhere mentioned that they thought "golf" was possibly the intended answer, but I'm just not seeing it as a plausible interpretation of the question. What am I missing?
The clue asks for an "annual event". Golf isn't an annual event, but the Masters is.

I settled on Dewey but really though they might be trying to trick us. If the paper (Chicago Trib?) went with the Dewey Defeats Truman headline mightn't Truman have thought he lost based on the early returns and sent off the congrats telegram. Not likely, I know, but possible. I thought Truman for ...

Re: FJs for the 5/21/18 week

I can't believe Harpers Ferry is at 33%. I thought that would easily poll at least 75. I remember Harper's Ferry from school history books, but I don't remember it ever being discussed in any depth. I thought it was a boat. Pun not intended, but I'll take credit (or blame). I also checked the Box O...

I was definitely thinking only in terms of proper nouns on FJ. There was no hope for me on that one.
This.

And the fact I somehow misread "two-syllable" as "two-word".
