This Is Kirk! wrote:A big couple weeks for Seattle in FJs. First the Space Needle, now Boeing. I'll be looking for Bill Gates or Starbucks sometime next week.

Since I live in Seattle and work for Boeing this was possibly the easiest Final Jeopardy question for me ever.
I work with your travel department (CTD) on occasion!

I swore I'd never miss another question pertaining either to Seattle or aviation, and fortunately, one Final allowed me to keep my pledge on both. :D

Fun game to watch, and congrats to the old and new champ. Even with geography as one of my stronger fields, those "bordering country" categories always kill me, because it's hard for me to visualize maps that quickly. I managed to go 4/5 on this one, though.

Pledges like that are never kept. They just haven't been broken yet.

A fun game for me. FJ-when I heard Seattle and aviation, I went straight to Boeing. Might have been too easy for a FJ.

Since I (apparently) use any opportunity on this board to promote geek troubadour extraordinaire Jonathan Coulton, I'll use this opportunity to leave this here: Jonathan's re-imagining of Space Oddity, with Laika replacing Major Tom in the story. Awkward title, beautiful song ... I present to you "Space Doggity":

(The visuals in this video are actually from another song)

Guess what Malashenkov?
I took the collar off
Im holding my own leash
And walking myself outside
This door
I dont think
I want to be a good dog anymore.
There was a 2007 graphic novel by Nick Abadzis about Laika, that was partially fictional, from a stray on the streets of Moscow to outer space.

Have it, read it, love it, gave a copy to Coulton for his birthday at a show a few years back. :D
