Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 3 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Are the facts about bumblebees ( e.g. , some nesting, some parasitic) that well-known? Or did a lot of people get that one simply because "bumble" sounds similar to bombus? I'm curious since I'm one of the few people who missed it. I reasoned that because honeybees had been alluded to in the first ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 3 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Well, I thought of Fu Manchu for the 9-pointer, and it made a whole lot of sense - involves drawing a mustache on a portrait, same first letter as "fives" - so I went with it, in the off chance I'd get a perfecto. Alas, it was not to be, but it still seems like the right move to try. The potential g...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 3 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

I haven't run the script yet (so I don't have statistics), but it appears that some of the questions today missed the difficulty mark. I sincerely apologize. While there are many very bright players, I want the competition to be fun for everyone. Two of today's questions have come up in the discuss...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 3 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

And I've been seeing two different answers for the 6-pointer that I think are both right--artful and adroit. Absolutely both are correct, and I'd go to the mat on this one if it became necessary. But I don't think that will happen. Just because a writer doesn't think of all the correct answers to a...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 3 Instant Replay thread (SPOILERS)

Congratulations to anyone who gets both Perplexus (which I have never heard of or seen before today) and Trinitron (which is probably weighted more toward we middle-aged folks.) I don't generally subscribe to AT's "you are probably too young to remember" excuse for not knowing things, but any pop cu...

I've never had an Almond Joy or a Mounds, but, man, that ad jingle ("Sometimes you feel like a nut; sometimes you don't. Almond Joy's got nuts, Mounds don't.") has stayed with me over the years.
