Quite a bit later than that, I would think. Japan didn't start using kamikaze bombers until late in the war as a last-ditch effort.

Ran "Z" and surprisingly, Fruits and Vegetables.

I can never remember the Greek alphabet in order when I need it. My mind just craps out after beta.

Sun for $200 seemed like a coinflip on 10 million/5 billion. How am I supposed to know that?

Overthought Abraham on Bible for $200. Had an "oh yeah, that" on the next two, got Cana, NHO Jezebel.

History, Bette Midler, Senate, Japan, Books? Yeah, I won't do well on this board.

You mean Moby-Dick wasn't the only thing Melville wrote?

Hiroshima is a prefecture? I at least knew Miyagi and Akita, but couldn't access either in time.

NHO "judiciary committee" to my knowledge.

"Wind Beneath My Wings" sucks ass, even with Gary Morris singing it. What a mountain of glurge that song is.

No guess on FJ! "Able to see" flew right over my head as an irrelevant metaphor.

ETA: We were never a Disney Channel or ABC Family family, or a Halloween family, so Hocus Pocus rings no bells. Also didn't spot Dolly in the Hello, Dolly clue.

One of my High School math classes tried teaching us the Greek alphabet to the tune of Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious...unfortunately, for me, I could never remember the rythmn past 'mu'

Everything up to then works smashing, though.
