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

Apparently, Romeo and Juliet is the correct response. The opera is taking up space on my DVR, though I haven't got around to watching it yet. But thanks to the recording, I was able to make an educated guess on the Gounod opera based on a Shakespearean play. You're in for a treat - the music is ver...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

No RQ is necessary, nor should suffrage be accepted. The clue was pinned to the 14th amendment, which doesn't mention voting rights. That's inaccurate, which I think helps illustrate why the question was misleading if you're familiar with the 14th amendment. (And also why the Eight Circuit tied the...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

The question was looking for the TOTAL number of security council members, no? Not just the permanent members? That's how I read it, so I clammed. Also, I'm really hoping that the answer to the 12-pointer is coral. I had some of it from a jeweler friend of my mother's when I was young, and it was d...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

The 6-pointer in Native American category was, I think, supposed to be citizenship, but I don't think that's accurate. Most Native Americans were already citizens by 1924 (in large part as an indirect result of allotment of Indian lands). And there were still some Native Americans who weren't given ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

... A couple of the clues in that category, but only a couple, were gettable through other means (like knowing that "Barbadian singer" is Pavlovian for Rihanna). That's the only way I was able to get that answer. For me, it was basically "Name a really famous singer from Barbados." Today was the da...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Not sure why I couldn't come up with the Shakespeare play with the bear - it's a famous one. :( Good clues, though.

In restrospect, I was too timid about guessing in the first category. It's sometimes hard to gauge whether you're making a reasonable educated guess.
