How should anyone be expected to know the date of the gunpowder plot?? The Walden fact was an excellent piece of trivia on the other hand
Because it has it's own Wikipedia page?

Re: Tuesday, April 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

According to a 1990 Chicago Tribute article on a book that researched the matter, John beat out Paul, but mainly because he was much more vocal about claiming contributions in the media - and the methodology they used is obviously imperfect and debatable. George was a distant third, and Ringo, as a...

Re: Tuesday, April 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So? "Yesterday" is the most covered, and I bet you not a single soul could name any of the artists who have done any of said covers. Or anyone who's ever had sucess with a Beatles cover ever. Oh yeah? Pretty sure a lot of folks have heard of Joe Cocker, and a couple of the different Beatles covers ...

I thought the George Harrison clue was bogus. Any reason I should know it was him, since Lennon and McCartney are far, far, FAR more known for their songwriting?!
Statements like that absolutely infuriate Beatles fans, FYI.

There was a lengthy discussion last week by a certain poster who didn't think Bible questions were relevant.
Oh come on. Not that I wanna get into a whole big thread necromancy or sidetrack, but i never said "not relevant". Not even close to that.

Unfortunately, Nibir tried to set Alex up for a Dhruv-like moment, but Alex didn't recognize it and trampled on Nibir's "You da man, Alex" response. Oh well. :)

Put me in the "Merchant of Venice" group, with a brief mental sidetrack on "Taming of the Shrew".

Cleveland is the Mid West?! :shock: I immediately flashed back to this FJ when Legend of Zelda came up: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=4255&highlight=zelda . You'd think the writers would learn at a certain point about this ... very few people use "Legend of " for the series. At least...

Why do you think you “have a valid point” about it? OK, I think the horse is dead enough now :? Insert faint whinny sound here. :p Again, the reason I bring this is because I don't feel that Bible Study isn't in the same category as the other subjects you're using for comparison.
