Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

BTW, am I the only one who got the R3 D5 12-pointer in large part because S22 J! contestant Alaric Smith used to post on the old J! board under a handle that was something like "The last visigoth" (which helped burn the "Alaric - Visigoth" association into my brain)?

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Singer is major negbait for the 6-pointer in "Tributes". He didn't die until 1875. Howe died in 1867. But since the correct answer hinges on people knowing those dates, this is much too hard for a 6-point question. I think you ought to consider a replacement question. (Although, since I got it righ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

In a small sample of responses it looks like the American Artists went through the SHC valuator with the assigned points not quite matching the player results of difficulty order. Without really having looked at anyone else's responses, I felt Maya Lin is so canonical in J! and in trivia generally ...

New Coke didn't exist until the marketing campaign of '85, at which point Coke was rebranded as "Coke Classic" after the public outcry. Only one of those names qualifies as a retronym.
Is a corporate rebranding, that's only going forward in effect, truly a retronym?

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I don't know what the intended response was for the batteries clue, but I think "single-use batteries" should be accepted alongside "disposable batteries." Along similar lines, the 4-pointer seems ambiguous as to whether new Coke or Coke classic was the intended answer. So I put "new Coke (or Coca ...

What an idiot I am. For the NYC landmark I was coin-flipping between the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower. I didn't really think the Empire State Building was a National Heritage site, but I figured the Freedom Tower was too new to have a replica in Las Vegas. The Statue of Liberty never...
