Re: THE "J" EFFECT $1000 clue 12/5/19 [SPOILERS]

They're all sprinkles to me. Spent my first 10 years in NYC and out on the Island; the rest mostly in FL.

Re: LL83: Learned League

The Commish may have been overly generous with me yesterday. I got credit for "Gundam Wing" and "King Cobra." I don't think that I should have gotten credit for either, especially the latter. There is at least a Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. Though it didn't premiere in 79, at least the parent show did,...

Does anyone know what barbarians have to do with Monaco anyway?
I believe it was a reference to the Guelphs
OK, so the next question is what does Monaco have to do with Canada? :)

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I agree with the sentiment that this FJ was an unfortunate lapse by the writers. Since Bram Stoker was Irish, Dracula , despite the fact that it was penned in London, is no more a "British" novel than The Sun Also Rises (written by Hemingway in Paris) or The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas (writte...

The FJ! clue had me far from certain although I was done and correct within five seconds. Barbarians was not going to help me while "royalty" & "movie star" had go to the right place with no detours. Same for me, thankfully. Not sure what barbarians have to do with it -- I'll look it up eventually.

Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe we should poll the "jimmies" issue. Like the poster above, I've always considered the dk. brown ones jimmies and the multicolored ones sprinkles. https://youtu.be/EkdvIVyuO8U I've never heard of them called jimmies -- they're all sprinkles to me. My futility continues with FJ this week. Consi...

When Alex mentioned the correct composer I knew two things
That's one more thing than I knew. I knew I was wrong, as I had no response, but still had no clue who it was. Still 0-for the week.

I thought of Prussia and didn't even know if I was on the right track and didn't know how to turn it into a 7-letter adjective, so I just put Prussia.
Pretty sure every acid in existence ends in either -ic or -ous, so that may help in the future.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Good to see that cmp146 got the prussic acid question correct (and got 2 points for it!). :) I overthought the French slave revolt question. That should be a Pavlov for Haiti, but between thinking that was TOO obvious, plus the use of "republic" and "Saint-Domingue"... Me on the heavy water question...

Not a chance for me on the FJ! clue as I was more lost than the players trying Gatsby, SNL and the Apollo Theater. My page was blank as I was trying to find a piece of literature and not some actual group gathering. I wrote nothing and could not even form a possible guess.
Ditto for me.

No guesses from Tues or Fri.

Been too long since I've seen The Godfather
Heard of a deepfake, but wasn't going to come up with it.
Never heard of a compound pharmacy that I can recall.
