Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), March 7, 2018

If the answers are all correct, I got 35. Phew, but not pleased with my performance at all. I legitimately thought that Colin Powell was Secretary of Defense rather than Secretary of State, so I was convinced that they made a mistake and still wrote Condoleeza Rice for it. I'm a flop.

I'm just glad nobody ended up with something like "What are Japan Jordan Jamai" - would've been the worst thing since "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart." (actually, one worse thing would have been only getting 3 letters into Japan when the pen quit)

Tiebreaker!

Maybe I won't take the online test. They've had their Chester A. Arthur category. I've missed my best chance. (Yes, I'm sad they didn't finish it.)

What's the opposite of Wired's definition of meme, because that's the only thing I can imagine causing a TSFJ there.

These three seemed to get a decent chemistry going. Rare for regular games.

"American Business" threw me off just enough to think they wanted a company instead of a model, so I tried Studebaker.

there were a ton of TOM's for "option" for anyone who's been in the same room as a college football game, I'd have thought. Everything 600-1000, though, yeah you have to be pretty familiar

For the record, Ryan's DD3 wager if he's correct does give him more than the sum of Sara and Justin's scores (19400 vs. 12200+6600=18800). You can't both accomplish that (min 3401) and avoid giving up the lead if wrong (max 3200). Of course, the right move is probably still a lead-maintaining wager ...
