Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--TOC instant replay thread (SPOILERS)

My many thanks also. It's a beautiful thing to see come around every summer, and I know that it involves a lot of work and dedication.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--TOC instant replay thread (SPOILERS)

I see that I got 59 pts on day 3 instead of my expected 75, and that this is because I made a typo that I didn't catch with my poor vision and proofreading skills. I realize that this is entirely my fault, that the instructions specifically require exact spelling, and that I was never going to win t...

For those of us of a certain age, naming the original three Charlie's Angels was a gift at 15.
Thinking the same thing as I answered it, lol.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--TOC instant replay thread (SPOILERS)

Man...that anagrams category. I spent so much time thinking about it. Ditto. I was so pleased with myself for getting the paean/apnea pair (went down a bad path at first with hymn) but that 15-pointer? Congrats on getting it. I was stuck thinking of spotted as in dappled and getting nowhere fast. I...

Oh man, I wanted to say Raphael so badly, but I just couldn't pull the trigger. On the other hand, I came up with Art Shell for the Browns owner, and nearly used it. But my other self was screaming that he was a coach - could even easily picture him if that was the case. In the end I listened to the...

Only because it appears a number of regulars didn't play this year. I fully expect it all to come crashing down around me within the next week.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 6 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

I'm sooooo glad I let myself sleep on the last day's questions rather than just giving up and answering late last night. My first thought on the BOK question was Bangkok - nothing to do with the question itself, just the cat name - and could barely get that out of my head to then think of Brooklyn. ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 6 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

I bet it's a lot better known - and really, who can forget it once seen - than "Naked Came the Stranger." Isn't there a PBS kids' show with a naked mole rat character, too? In 1995, some of Florida's top fiction authors wrote a serialized novel titled "Naked Came the Manatee". Dave Barry wrote the ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 6 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Wow. I am duly impresssd. I was worried that the naked mole rat was too obscure for even a 15 point clue, but it's high get rate argues otherwise. Either it's a better known critter than I was hitherto aware or you all follow Science magazine's "vertebrate of the year" competition a lot more closel...
