IMHO, The Right Stuff is an outstanding film and would certainly have been a far better choice for Best Picture in 1983 than the wretchedly insincere and manipulative Terms of Endearment.
Reminds me of this FJ from 2002 (the ToC, in fact, which is why I chose to link to the game rather than simply copy and paste the FJ).
I'm smart and I want respect.

Guessed right on Weather Channel (isn't this also an Atlanta based outfit)
NHO Apologia
Followed instructions on flag with Orange as a Pavlov from Dutch
Guessed Emory with some degree of confidence
had the Right Stuff and remember much of the book with the Chuck Yeager undercurrent

no path to any of the extra clues but think the bass one was fishier than Opus' exhaust :lol:

Symposium on Tuesday. White man's burden on Friday just to have something down. Started with Johns Hopkins Thursday before remembering CDC is in Atlanta - Emory seemed the logical choice from there. I'm at 54% on 100 regular play finals so far this season.

Final J! and 1983 — just about the only two things those movies have in common.

14% on Riverworld is higher than I expected; thanks for including that one, Mark!

Guessed Metamorphosis/Metamorphoses on Tuesday, Georgia Tech on Thursday. I didn't know if it had a med school, but I knew U. of Georgia isn't in Atlanta. Got all three colors. I don't think I've ever read or seen The Right Stuff.

(Given my predilection for falling weeks behind filling out the polls, it helps that I've been posting enough in the game threads that I can look up my guesses if I can't remember what they were!)
