Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 6 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Wow. I am duly impresssd. I was worried that the naked mole rat was too obscure for even a 15 point clue, but it's high get rate argues otherwise. Either it's a better known critter than I was hitherto aware or you all follow Science magazine's "vertebrate of the year" competition a lot more closel...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 6 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

I knew the battle was Stamford Bridge, not just Stamford, so I went with it. But it's an odd name for a stadium, so I made a parenthetical comment in my response. Now that I've looked it up, I see that that IS the name of the stadium - woo-hoo!

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Is the intended answer for the 10-pointer sluice or cistern? Do both fit? I think only sluice fits. A cistern is not really a "water channel" and it doesn't require a gate. Essentially a cistern is a storage tank for water. Also doesn't fit the derivation given. Personally I HATE anagrams, because ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

The replies I've read about the Klein bottle question have pretty much all mentioned Calvin Klein, but I put down Anne Klein, which also works as far as I can tell since both are fashion designers from NY. I guess I just thought she was younger so would be better known these days. It was my official...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

That was the longest I've taken to answer a set of questions. I was going along fine until the Kramer clue and then hit a wall. Even though I'm not a Seinfeld (or Friends) watcher I know enough to have the characters and actors in my mental TV-dex. I went to retrieve the guy who played Cosmo and hi...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 5 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

The word "many" in the Wall Drug clue should have been italicized, bolded and underlined at least three times. Having driven through SD several times on my many cross-country trips, I can definitively state that there are a dragon-shit* load of billboards for Wall Drug. *Drogon-sized dragons, becaus...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 4 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Maybe it's just me, but "The 1984 NBA Draft" was a crazy hard category. All I can say is thank you for putting it in the lower-points section. When quantum mechanics is orders of magnitude easier than the day's other category, something seems just a bit out of whack.
