Re: 2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 3 Instant Replay Thread

I was thinking nurse for the D4 15-pointer. I would never have come up with wound dresser in a million years - a somewhat obsolete occupational descriptor. I'm sure I'm not the only one on this board, but I can reasonably fake being cultured with factoids that I've learned from Jeopardy. In this ca...

Re: 2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 3 Instant Replay Thread

I had the wrong Beatle (McCartney) and the wrong expressionist (Rothko -- although he numbers his, too, so that's huge negbait). I'm glad I didn't think of Rothko, otherwise I probably would have gone with him. And I know this ages me pretty accurately, but I learned about the Harrison song by way ...

Re: 2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 2 Instant Replay Thread

How did a South American animal (the guinea pig) wind up in the Burmese zodiac? I ruled it out because I couldn't see that happening, and guessed rat instead (which is also in the Burmese zodiac, but obviously for a different day of the week). I was wondering that myself, but fortunately knew beyon...

Re: 2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 2 Instant Replay Thread

I know it's only two points, but have a bit of an issue with an adze being called "axe-like". I realize it's subjective, but I discounted it because (as climbers can tell you) an axe can contain an adze, similar to a claw on the back end of a hammer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_axe Don't get me...
