Instagot Monday knowing the top five Mediterranean islands by size.
I knew Nostradamus was French and I'm pretty sure I had known he was a doctor, but keyed into the "immortal" part of the clue, thought they were looking for a religious figure, and could only come up with Pascal even though I knew he was about a century later and didn't think he was a doctor. I might've been able to pull this with a few minutes think time.
I never do the Clue of the Day and couldn't think of anyone else it could be besides Fitzgerald.
I went through recent Best Actor winners in my head and came up with Redmayne about halfway through the music without remembering what film he had actually won for.
Friday I had "Beethoven" at "1810" and "Für Elise" by "Elisabeth."
I'm well aware Kinsey did his research at Indiana but for some reason said "Penn State" and I clammed on Chicago and Bangkok even though I was certain of both.
I would prefer not to.
