I think a typo got transferred over. Should be "in Chinese & English", right?
Yes, it's fixed. Now let Andy know since I copied it from TJ!F.
That's how I knew it was transferred over; for clarification, I went to his site next!

Poor jeopardy-dot-com is the third place I think to look.

Telemundo has appeared only once as a correct response, and that with a "Spanish for world" hint. Guess Univision if you're going to guess, it's the bigger network anyway. (Based of my J-Archive search, Telemundo has better name recognition, as it's a popular wrong guess. Beavis and Butthead brought...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Answering "Tuesday Next" instead of "Thursday Next" when spotted a date this week is super-fail. Also, my memory of my time at Barnes and Noble continues to slip away. I do still remember there's 2 F's in Jasper FForde, though.

I bet a lot of people don't realize the quote was from a children's book. Which quote? The well-known recursion is from the poem "Sacred Emily" published in the book Geography and Plays (not a children's book). Quote is a quote is a quote is a quote.

Re: FJs for the 10/7/19 week

Ah yes, the other Carson McCullers novel. I should add that to the flashcards, but I've been remiss in reviewing them for the last week. I think it showed up in one of Ed Toutant's games, if I remember correctly. From the Literature Pavlovs thread: I'd add Carson McCullers to this list. Although (ac...

The 4th "Guy Mannering" clue in the J-Archive, and the first with a correct response! (Also the first without a reference to the Dandie Dinmont Terrier, for the record.)
