Who painted the second image, the one with someone carrying pails? Offhand I would've guessed it was from Chagall's I and the Village but now I see it isn't.

My expectations were not last maybe, so this is a nice surprise!

A bit surprised at the results of the music question. I figured Kanye would be a clear sheep, instead of a relatively forgettable Vampire Weekend album.

And I chose poorly between Magritte and Renoir. Really people? Only 3 Renoirs? I'm such a sheep.
Similar minds think alike.

My thoughts, exactly. So much of the time in TDs, the sheep is not the answer everyone knows, but the one everyone underestimates what the others know. I thought Magritte was too obvious to sheep, but I (as well as 22 others) was wrong.

The spread on that TV question seems like a great example of this.

Magritte = Sheep??? Baaaaaaaahd.

The game theory implications of all the think/doublethink/triplethink is boggling on this TD.

Well done, Vermonter....my continually bouncing rank is a tribute to your craftwork.

I enjoy the strange shapes many countries have taken.

Name one of the countries presented here, not to scale. (N.B. spaces between parts of the same country are to scale.)

Nothing too damaging here (unless you were wrong).
