Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I interpreted the Communist Manifesto question as asking for a 20th century work, which didn't seem to make sense given the wording of the clue. But I still didn't consider works from any other century, and it cost me a win. But at least getting credit for pear instead of bulb got me the tie! Crud....

I wouldn't have crossed out Quaker. That quickly got me to Pennsylvania/Philadelphia, and that (with upholsterer) got me to Ross with a high confidence level.

There was an audible gasp here, and I was watching alone.

I hope the two guys weren't regretting the joke responses now (if they knew the answer). It didn't matter, but it sure could have (when it shouldn't have).

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, that was good timing; pub quiz just had a question asking for the only two people to win two Nobel Prizes in the same category. I only had one, but it was one more than my team would have had if I hadn't watched Millionaire today. That was hilarious. Unfortunate, but hilarious. You don't get ...

Did the Jeopardy! clue crew screw up? Spain used the Peseta. Unless they used the peso long back.

Thank you for the Newsday puzzle link. Working in pen was a mistake as I had a difficult time figuring out where I went wrong with my errors. One by one I worked out the correct fills to get the puzzle done with no help other than father time having no limit. It definitely took me more than an hour...

Lach Trash: peso
I don't remember the wording of the clue, but Spain's currency was the peseta (not the peso) from 1869 until the conversion to the euro in 2002.

For FJ, I think they thought it was Kid's Week, not Teen Week.

We also had a LOTF-related project. All of the boys in the class were sent to an island. Most of us came back.

Another outdated clue thanks to the recent A.G. change.
Not really; the fact that there's now an (acting) 85th doesn't change the fact that he's the 84th.
I bought my house from the (now) Maryland Attorney General who has filed the challenge to Whitaker assuming the duties of the AG.

Since I had never heard of them before the clue last night, it was really weird to open the newspaper this morning and see this comic strip:

Dan was ringing in before he knew whether he knew the answer or not and use the extra time to figure it out. It's usually a good strategy, but didn't work well for him. It was exciting watc...

Don't say I never gave you anything. For the cervical vertebrae, think of a cervical collar, which goes around your neck. The thorax is your chest, so that's where the thoracic vertebrae are. That leaves the lumbar vertebrae at the bottom (lumbago is lower back pain).

After two levels, optimum choice is usually not much better than a random selection. That's why Sun Tzu recommended not just unpredictability, but unforeseeability. Wesley proved the worth of that with Vizzini.
