Kept trying to work 'purse' into 'prizefight'

I just went ahead and did an entry. I like trips. It's not like they're going to take a vacation -away- from you if you lose!

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I'm glad FILO was accepted. The clue practically spelled out 'LIFO' but I've never heard of that; but I have heard of FILO. Also, "FILO" sounds better.

Grr, stupid first half luck, I probably'd be safely in promotion territory if it wasn't for weeks of .400 defense...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Criminal law is a thing? Ok, I'll bite. What is confusing about the concept of criminal law? You've heard of police, prosecutors, judges, courtrooms, juries, jails, "You have the right to remain silent," heard of a show called "Law & Order," etc.? I have, but I didn't know that it had a specific al...

Funny to see "prize fight" turn into a TS when the category spotted them "fight" and they just had to come up with a kind of boxing match that involves money for the winner.

I have heard of many -ocracy's but I don't recall ever hearing Technocracy. You more often hear of technocrats, but it's an easy jump from there to the form of government. It sounds awesome, I didn't know it was the subject of a novel(?). But ergs is a stupid unit and was chosen to sound science-y....

So how many billions of miles am I gonna have to trek to find a caesar salad anyway? They're not exotic. Try your local grocery store, or even some fast food restaurants (Wendys, for one) . Also, a casual chain place like Red Lobster. But maybe wait a few months. I know last time I went to Wendy's ...

Any reason I should know what kind of lettuce is used in a Caesar salad?
Because there was just a MASSIVE romaine lettuce recall, and many sources lamented the lack of Caesar salads
