no way on Earth I'm getting opal out of that DD. :?
On the flip side, I got it solely from the photo.

My copy of The Bartender's Black Book lists the drinks in all caps, so I'm not chirping in on that one.

Re: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I usually do really well on Batman Villain categories. I played some of the Batman games (Arkham Asylum/Arkham City) and they were very good. They also introduce you to all the villains as bosses so you learn them very easily. Egghead wasn't in those games and Adelie didn't come up. Missed the peng...

Well, you can't dispute it based on the length criterion, but I'd be curious what people think about the 'most filmed' part. There's enough Hamlets that MST3K even spoofed one. (It's the full bit so...gray area, but you get four versions spotted for you before the first door sequence) https://www.y...

"V" seems early in the alphabet for an "alphabetically last" clue. I thought of the Yazoo, which was part of the Vicksburg campaign. It is in fact a national wild life refuge, though Yukon beats it for alphabetically late. Another yahoo here who said Yazoo. I agree V is a bit early, a Civil War men...

Right-handed pitcher Joe Musgrove threw a no-hitter on April 9 against the Texas Rangers. It is the first no-hitter ever by a Padres pitcher. I'm not absolutely certain about this, but I believe the San Diego Padres were the last remaining MLB team never to record a no-hitter in franchise history. ...

It's too bad they discontinued 151. It was the strongest alcohol you could buy in California and I've gotten to make some special drinks with it. Too many people getting alcohol poisoning and suing the company I suppose. Allegedly, it was because 151's easily flammable, but there's never been an of...

It was a dig in the sense that it, in the football world, might be an indication that LaFleur doesn't have full confidence in his abilities. That simply isn't possible. It was 100% LaFleur making the wrong call. Rodgers completed 70.7% of his passes for nearly 4300 yards, with 48 TD and 5 -- yeah, ...
