TD 379 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 7xx (FINAL RESULTS)

Post by floridagator » Sun May 06, 2018 11:50 am

This is not merely a TD, but the sixth in a RING of EIGHT TDs. The theme of this ring of TDs is Classic Area Codes. Until 1995, all area codes had 0 or 1 as their middle digit. Those are the classic North American area codes. There will be a TD for each starting digit, 2 through 9. You don't need to know anything about area codes to play or succeed. Read the questions. Many are EASY!

To up my game, there will be an ACTUAL AWARD for the winner of the ring of eight TDs. To be eligible to win an Amazon gift card, you must participate in all eight TDs. Winner will be the one with the lowest total score.

Each TD in the ring will have at least one visual question, at least one aural question, at least one sports question, and one before and after question.

Standard TD rules apply. For each question below, there are a number of choices. Choose one as your answer. Think Different is scored by the number of people who submit the same answer. It's best to be the only person who chooses a particular answer. The most common answer is called the sheep. You don't want to be a sheep. Incorrect answers get the sheep score plus five points. Low score wins. Bonus questions will allow you to reduce your score by up to se7en.

You may drop one question and sheep one question. (To sheep means to accept the highest score on a question without fear of giving an incorrect answer.) No research! Your answers must come from your head; not your reference library, search engine or your neighbor who writes for a quiz show. This TD closes Monday, May 14 at 9:00 AM EDT.

Submit your answers here

The wording on the submission form is for identification of the questions only. If there is any conflict between the submission form and this TD, this page prevails.

For information only, here's the area code map from the classic period and from today. Note how simple the classic map is compared to today's area code map.

Finally, I would like to put a halt to people asking questions about the questions in the forum. Providing more clarification isn't fair to people who submit early. Please advise me privately if I have made some error in constructing the TD, but do not expect me to provide more information about the clues. If you're not sure something is a correct answer, don't use it. There must be some you're absolutely sure about.

On with the TD...

Buffalo's spectacular and mammoth art deco city hall is one of the tallest city halls in the country and a true landmark. Identify one of these city halls. (Name of city)

Image


717 - PENNSYLVANIA

Philadelphia was the most important business center of colonial America. It isn't anymore. But that doesn't mean I couldn't come up with 10 questions about Pennsylvania businesses.
  • For decades, the country's top-selling magazine was headquarted in Radnor and was published in over 140 regional editions
  • What Camp Hill-based drug store chain is America's third largest? (Hint: It's smaller than CVS and Walgreens.)

  • What famous lighter company is based in Armour?
  • What did PPG formerly stand for?

718 - NEW YORK

The 718 is the outerboroughs of New York City. Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Although much more populous (6.9 million versus 1.6 million in Manhattan), they aren't as important as Manhattan. (Hell, doesn't the name outerborough do an excellent job of signalling that?) Name a landmark in the outerboroughs.


719 - COLORADO

The worst of the worst go to the ADMAX maximum security prison in Florence, Colorado. From the information given, identify one of these scourges of humanity who currently reside or once resided at ADMAX.

  • His brother turned him in after the New York Times published his voluminous manifesto in 1996
  • He thought he was clever enough to plant a pressure-cooker bomb behind a line of children at the Boston Marathon in 2013 but not clever enough to get out of town

This is teachers' tournament week and I know some people aren't paying attention to the TV game so that gives you all the more reason to participate in the TD this week.

That, plus the fact that this one could shape up to be a very interesting reveal. Lots of good answers available and plenty of opportunities for my strategies to backfire -- I think I knew at least three or four answers to every question, all of the answers to one or two, and it was very difficult to select a "final answer." And harder to select one to drop. I'm betting I dropped one that will turn out to be a singleton in order to keep three sheep.

GREAT TD this week, and a lot of fun!
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I had a pretty good laugh at a certain point in this TD! (If it becomes A Thing, floridagator should coin a meme-worthy term.)

I will be entering eventually. The TD's are a constant reminder that I don't know much relative to most of the people on the jboard, let alone the subset of those who create the TD's. But it's a nice kind of stretch. Thanks, floridagator!

Being great at the latter is the price for being hopeless at the former.

I need to host another musically-themed TD. If gator’s going to make eight games full of elevator music, this board can handle one more showcasing my musical tastes, which were once described as those of a bisexual college girl by someone who thought I would take that as a pejorative.

Please do. I've wanted to host a music themed one myself but I don't have the technical know-how to do it.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I did one in TD 254; but I’ve held off on a sequel since then, because the way to embed videos has changed.

I've never been on the podium before. The difference between 3rd place and 47th place is that FG let me revise my entry after I got access to speakers so I wouldn't have to use my drop and sheep on audio clues :D . I originally Wag'd Steve Bannon for one of the pictures with the squirrely hair so that was a 17 point pickup. I can match a few of them with the answers, but Harry Morgan was the only one I would have guessed correctly outright. Now watch me sheep the audio clue for 20 points! See 'ya at the bottom!

No worries, twelvefootboy. I got the Canadian audio clue wrong (99.9% odds), so sheeping is hardly going to be a problem.

That is probably my most embarrassing incorrect answer ever, especially since I can name all 50, I just went on auto-pilot.

On the plus side, an open letter to someone out there:
SpoilerShow
Incorrect answers were gross, latka, lefke (sorry), limpa, malm, pierogie, piroshki, and Swedish tacos.
Incorrect answers were but these, gefeltefish, gifelte fish, gravlax, haggis, herring, kallax, lox, stinkfish.
Incorrect answers were All Sound, Denmark, Ektorp, Finland, Norway.
Incorrect answers were butterhorn, cannoli, delicious, fargrik, horn of deliciousness, kjeldsen, Norwegian cannoli, reindeer antler, tuille, wafers, waffel kake (close).
