Surprised to see the 72% on water standards. I must've missed that day in class, because that didn't ring any bells.
I had no clue, but what else could it be?
I talked myself out of the right answer on at least 3 questions. For Massachusetts, I figured the state is surrounded by water but then I looked at the date of 1890 and switched to air thinking of coal burning emissions

I saw the flags and knew her (former) title, but had no clue what her name was.
Yeah, I threw out a Hail Mary of "Former Australia Prime Minister". For some reason, it was marked wrong.

I put Campbell, remembering Kim Campbell was the PM of some Commonwealth country. Oh yeah, that was Canada. :oops:

Are your Dustys feeling the heat with a double digit lead cut to 8.5 games?

I talked myself out of water and wrote down milk. Classic case of overthinking.

Yeah, seemed like the most likely reasonable guess.

The only race in that division is for 2nd place.

I waffled between air and water for a while. I eventually decided once I noticed "Swallow" in the name and figured that you swallow water, whereas swallowing air doesn't sound quite right; that was enough for me to quit dillydallying and submit. Hooray for specious reasoning!

It's times like these that I'm glad I'm not as knowledgeable as some of you. Coal, milk, air, none of those crossed my mind at all. I'm only smart enough for one guess and I went with it.

Easier? It looks like leaguewide, it only got 18%.
In B-Pac it got 35%

Oh, I guess that was before you realized there were flags in it. Duh me.

OH! Now I see your confusion. Yes, imagine the photo difficulty -without- flags. Now realize they were there the whole time.
Worse, I lost a beer because of that.

I drank the beer for the first time this season...and ended up with a tie.

I had considered air quality but ended up spending a day wondering if "drinking water" would be accepted.

I saw the flags, but I knew the PM of Australia is male, so she must have been PM earlier during Obama's presidency. Way beyond me.

I say this somewhat out of self-interest, but what's the deal with voting for the Sandra award? Isn't that the whole point of having a statistic?
