Alex was not familiar with gimlet?
Sorry if I missed a reply to this. I assumed Alex meant that he wasn't familiar with the tool.

I enjoyed watching Melanie--glad you had a good time! Jon survived the "correcting Alex" jinx in his interview segment.

I got FJ! fairly easily despite only having had tangential exposure to the show. I spent a few years as coach of a Quiz Bowl club at an engineering school, where our main strategy on art questions was "guess a Turtle". (Though I've actually learned a few art factoids by reading questions at practice and watching J! for a Really Long Time.)

I guess I need to embrace the 21st century, but on my crappy little TV I could just tell that there were four people in that image, and I could only tell that the middle two were wearing colored masks. Under those handicaps I had no chance of getting this FJ! right.

Parts of the Agulhas current flow southward past Mozambique & curve around this cape to the Atlantic Ocean.
Is there any reason to think "What is Cape Agulhas" would be ruled incorrect?

Can't find any geographic reason why not.

I'm late catching up on episodes. The mural was in last summer's Learned League Mini-League on the Renaissance. There was a 76% correct answer rate in identifying a specific artist. https://www.learnedleague.com/mini/ques ... ssance&2&6
Silver Screen Test, my movie trivia game show. Watch some of the episodes On-Demand.
