Would have had Sun Tzu. I didn't make the (season) 35 connection, but a different one: the minimum age to be President.
I don't think I've seen The Last Supper in person.

Thank you, Yakko Warner, for putting those two close together in the song (and Somalia, the one I knew immediately, first).

Speedy, Maine, and Punic Wars, and losing a coin flip and saying harp instead of lyre. $2200, so I couldn't catch up.

Neonatal is a word I need to learn, and I should have gotten Flemish.

Re: FJ Poll for 2/8/2019

On Wheel of Fortune or The Price Is Right , sometimes it looks like the wheel is going to stop on the perfect space, but it has just enough spin left to get over one more peg. That was me, naming as many Shakespeare comedies as I could and deciding to go on to the next; Taming of the Shrew was my pe...

Joan got away with it again: the clue was asking for Loretta Lynn, not the name of the film.
"The woman seen here is the subject of this 1980 film about a rise to musical fame." It's asking for the movie.

Probst. I didn't like it (was pretty sure the talk part was wrong), but couldn't come up with someone better.

Keira Knightley (also considered Portman and Swank), Teddy Roosevelt.
For some reason "Home on the Range" got stuck in my head about two months ago and that's when I learned it was Kansas' state song.

Re: Monday, December 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

At home and not keeping score, I pantomimed flipping a coin and took the 50/50 with Laurel over Hardy, but on the show would have clammed rather than give someone the rebound layup. Was the coin flip because you weren't sure which name went with which character? Or was it because you weren't sure w...

I noted my long FJ! streak on Saturday, so of course it breaks today on what I usually consider a strong category.

I considered King, along with Patterson and Clancy (Crichton was dismissed because I was pretty sure he died before 2012), but stuck with Rowling, who was my first thought.

FJ! streak stands at 19, which I think is my longest ever.

The clues for handy reference in DO THE MATH since it's bound to be a topic of board interest: $200: It's the decimal equivalent of 1/8 $400: 9 divided by 3/4 = this $600: If  x² + 2 = 18, x = this $800: It's 5% of 400 $1000: (x + 1)² expands to this One way of doing the math in the category: $200:...
