"Nuit" is one of the first 20 words you learn in phrasebook French along with Bon Jour.
Time to go back for a review class. It's 'bonjour' (one word).

A little further digging reveals that a TV antenna added on top in the 50s made it taller than the Chrysler building. The question was correct.

Next: The friend knew the Eiffel Tower was built first.  The friend recently stayed at the Paris in Vegas.  The friend knew there is a replica Eiffel Tower there about 500' and half the size of the real one in France.  He steered Emily towards The Eiffel Tower with fairly strong confidence.

Thanks again to boson for referring me! I'm excited to be starting in R Magnolia
Glad to have you!

AMag is populated with 5 boardies/former boardies. We lost Colby Burnett to another league so our TOC champ cachet has dropped a bit. Looking forward to LL77!

Precalled isthmus as a potential term for FJ; may have also got it by remembering this from The Little Rascals :D
I got it, but not because I remember that line, which I use way too frequently.

Re: Friday, April 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Beau Brummel was mentioned in Billy Joel’s “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me”, that and a mention in a very early Garfield strip has helped me get him right at least once watching J! I’d like to think that he’s also part of pop culture, way before everyone’s time, and most people don’t know him. (I w...

Post Quite surprised that a trivia regular wouldn't have a basic knowledge of Henry VIII's wives. Beyond that, I think Lynn fell into the trap of overrating how much one can "think through" the questions on her last one. I don't know what her specific thought process was, but while miles of pathway...

3) Founded by Catholics? Is Maryland from Mary's land? As in Mary mother of Christ? These TOMs are killing me.
Actually, as in Queen (consort) Mary, wife of Charles I (and mother of Charles II and James II).

Re: Reretaken Down

I love the style of that car! It reminds me of some recent "box" cars such as the Kia Soul, Nissan Cube, and Toyota Scion. I guess it's true that everything old is new again. Oh my goodness no! I had one of those (I think a Cube) as a rental in Kansas a few years ago. It was very windy, and that th...

Knew lumbago, but didn't come up with it. Like Opus, it didn't specify at the beginning of the word. So eventually came up with sciaticap after dismissing pslipped disc.

Yeah, those were tough boards.

I heard a celebratory "Whoo!" several times from the audience; I doubt it was a boo. I had coming of age as well. I think it's marginal, and not what they wanted, but they'd probably have to take it. Didn't come close to the rabbit horse. Went with Mt. Olympus, but was pretty sure it was wrong. I ne...
