I agree. No way is "Archie's Place" correct. That wasn't the name of the show.hbomb1947 wrote:"Archie's Place" would never be BMS'd on the show -- it would simply be negged, as it should if anyone responds with it here.

It's not really a question of being more specific, unless you think they might be talking about some other Archie.This Is Kirk! wrote:I predict more people will answer "Archie's Place" than the correct "Archie Bunker's Place."
This is where all of the games are discussed.
Edith died if a stroke, not a heart attack.
That was coincidental. I had the category name and listed ten or so possible responses two or three years ago, but didn't get around to writing clues until this SHC.Sherm wrote:...Couldn't pull up Beaufort scale, even though it was on jeopardy about two months ago, and that bothers me.

Cold comfort: Seven other players answered "Archie's Place". I went down in flames on today's questions.MarkBarrett wrote: I have count as of sherder on page 3 as:

Yup. I included that with my responses. (And Soleil Moon Fry's last name has no E.)Bamaman wrote:Edith died if a stroke, not a heart attack.
The clue spelled it Frey, though. But whoops on my part. Thanks.

Sigh, Head-Slap and another one bites the dust for Mayday, doh, of course... the signal was Morse carrier wave, not voice. Stupid goats!hbomb1947 wrote:Similar to Kirk's comment, I predict more people will answer "Mayday" than "CQD" -- a term that's relatively obscure (there are only 2 hits for it in the J! archive -- and in both cases, the clue gave CQD and asked for the other distress signal sent by the Titanic).
Under CQD in wiki this factoid actually appears, the radioman sent 'SOS,' which was newfangled, as a novelty message.

That's a tough type of clue to write and score because there's no way to ask someone to BMS after a clue has been submitted (since it can be assumed that everyone googles or otherwise looks up the correct responses as soon as they've submitted). And if the clue specified that you had to name the number of the book (or something similar), that would have narrowed down the range of choices considerably for people, although of course even if they got to Samuel, they still would have had to guess the correct volume number -- but that might have turned some negs into less catastrophic clams.Schliemann wrote:y'all dinged "samuel"??? yikes. that is tight.
