This Wikipedia article says that Victoria did wear her wedding ring on her pinky finger-

A wedding never occurred to me because I would have assumed Albert would be putting the ring on her.

26 right.

Science Fiction (2), World (4), Transportation (2), Rock (4), "Metal" (0), Where (3)
African (5), Renaissance (2), Job (0), Spelling (0), Water (2), "Kid" (2)

No Lach Trash.

Nothing came to mind for FJ; I knew the year of Victoria's coronation, but didn't make the connection.

The dis on The Eagles reminded me of this story in Billboard last year. I had no idea people hated them en masse (which might be because I'm from California). http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... glenn-frey
I still don't think the Eagles and Nickleback are on the same level despite both being famous for lots of people hating them.
I think that Nickleback is more ridiculed than hated (which is probably worse). ;)
I'm certainly not the Eagles' biggest fan; I'm not really a fan at all, it's more that I think that a handful of their songs are very good to excellent (which is more than can be said for most bands). But Henley and Frey were often pretentious jerks; I fully understand how people got rubbed the wrong way.

Maybe he was in the can.

The innominate situation came up at the end of DJ.

Innominate situation - Where the 2nd place contestant needs to score in order to prevent a runaway, but the 3rd place contestant rings in, thus freezing both of them out.

The champ had 25000. The 2nd place contestant had 11400. He called for the 1600 clue. Had he rung and been correct, he would have gotten to 13000 and the game would not have been a runaway. But the 3rd place contestant rang and was correct, ending the round with a runaway.
My philosophy: We watch for the game. Players who get in the way of the game intrude, whether they're arrogant or adlib or cackle or fidget or make noise or are rude to AT. We want those who just play the game and don't make it about themselves to win.

I was about to ask what the heck the 2nd Ave Subway Line was. Why would anyone outside of NY know that, though?
Another example of the show's East Coast bias

I'm still not sure why no one in this thread or the thread from the day before criticized my wager on Complete the List.

Because there are no "official" CtL episode threads?
Which is kind of surprising, now that I think of it.
