re the 15-pointer for R2D2, I'm worried the writer stepped headlong into the Sunni/Shia divide. :|
I was just about to post a similar comment. I had planned to answer Ali but couldn't remember if he was the one named or the putative candidate that led to the split.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

One small bummer about an August audition is that an 18-month pool means possibly being locked out of the online test until 2021. I'd better make the most of my audition! I don't recall exactly, but I think they would make a concession for someone to take the online test again if very near the end ...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

Are people able to take the test at any time? I wasn't asked which specific test I wanted to take. I did have an audition in October 2016 so I might still be in the contestant pool. It's only been 17 months. I was in a similar situation after an audition; the test was less than 3 weeks before my 18...

Hungarian Rhapsody No 2 by Liszt? If that’s right, I heard it first, like a lot of classical music, in a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

Re: Tuesday, January 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Nobody named the "main character" from a 20th century novel today, so I'm a hair's breadth away from dredging up Sergeant Pepper. (oops.) Seems to have been alluded to, and lots are picking up on Ulysses where he gets supporting credit, but just so it's officially on record Daedelus is the main cha...
