My first 1DS for the season was Seinfeld Minutae. Kind of bummed it didn't take my response of "waitress/cashier at Monk's" for Q11, since I moneyed it and would've gotten 95 more points had it been deemed correct. I guess she wasn't technically a waitress? Oh well. Looking forward to 2 or 3 other 1DS, plus 2 of the MLs. Not doing the Wall Street, I don't feel like going 0-the entire ML on questions! Ha!

I was quite proud of myself for thinking of Ruthie Cohen. I also considered Peterman, Frank Costanza, and Susan, but just couldn't believe any of them could possibly have been in over 100 episodes.

I was quite annoyed that description was acceptable instead of requiring the character name. If you call your quiz minutiae then don’t go easy on the players!

Ended up deciding against moneying it figuring lots of people could guess the cashier and cost me the chance to win.

Serenity now!!

Still a fine showing by you, Jeff. I award you the "Feats of Strength" medal for your efforts! :)

Totally blanked on the Yev Kassem question, answered the Drake. Got to HATE the Drake.

I finished in the top 50 in the Rare Video Games 1DS. (A few days ago when I saw it in the upcoming topics, I made sure to do a quick Google and remind myself of the title of "Air Raid," which I thought was inevitable as an answer and likely to be little gotten.) I had five answers I was sure of and one fairly informed guess of 1990, moneyed four of the ones I knew and 1990 (in favor of what I thought was the easiest, Final Fantasy VII), and pondered over the Sega Genesis question for a little longer. Once I came up with Blockbuster Video, I was sure enough of it to money it, then un-moneyed Primal Rage and submitted, then immediately thought, "Ooh, I should have un-moneyed Earthworm Jim instead." Sure enough, only 38% missed that (even less than Final Fantasy), whereas 67% missed Primal Rage. Those 29 points would have put me at #24 instead of #44, but I'm pleased anyway.
