Still working on at least one science RQ.

Long-time players realize there may be more.

Stay tuned.

A guest writer today, and a new take on an SHC classic. Enjoy.

WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?

By tpmorrison. Name the character who said the line.

2: " 'It was Moby Dick that dismasted me; Moby Dick that brought me to this dead stump I stand on now' "

4: “My master likewise mentioned another Quality which his Servants had discovered in several Yahoos, and to him was wholly unaccountable. He said, a Fancy would sometimes take a Yahoo, to retire into a Corner, to lie down and howl, and groan, and spurn away all that came near him."

6: "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like . . . but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth."

8: "I wish I had said to him then - yes, I know, to a tiger, but still - I wish I had said, 'Richard Parker, it's over. We have survived. Can you believe it? I owe you more gratitude than I can express. I couldn't have done it without you.' " 

10: "I believe that on the first night I went to Gatsby's house I was one of the few guests who had actually been invited. People were not invited--they went there."

#BADJEOPARDYCATEGORIES

Earlier this summer, @midnight had a “Hashtag War” called #BadJeopardyCategories. I, of course, took that as a personal challenge to see how many clues I could write that fit them. So, instead of a “You Asked For It” this year, we're going to try to use as many of the (good, and printable) #BadJeopardyCategories as we can.

3: IMPOTENT POTABLES – Besides its better-known use, sildenafil can also be used to treat pulmonary artery hypertension, a condition that increases the workload of this cardiac chamber.

6: ONE-LETTER WORDS – This single letter means “He” or “Him” in Vietnamese, “There” in French, and “And” in Spanish.

9: DROIDS YOU ARE (MAYBE?) LOOKING FOR – This Japanese company makes the Xperia android phone, as well as the God of War video game series and the Resident Evil movies.

12: MARIJUANA STRAINS – The “leading lady” of this 1978 Rick James song “turns me on with her love, takes me to paradise.”

15: IT'S BEHIND YOU RIGHT NOW – The human vertebral column ends at this construction of three to five fused bones, also known as the tailbone.
