OMFG! Two of you have already submitted answers that end in Y

WHY DO I BOTHER WRITING QUESTIONS IF NO ONE IS GOING TO READ THEM?? :evil:

Neither the state nor the capital can end in Y. Got it now?

What is the standard for something being a legitimate itis? And how can one verify that without violating the rule against research?

Would it be as simple as a condition being listed in taber's medical dictionary? (Or would that be as simplistic as believing something that's available in the McCormick spice rack is a spice?)

Sorry for the late reply, but I just saw this. Seems like a straightforward answer - it either is or it isn't! If someone submits an answer I've never heard of, then I'm going straight to Google. I can't imagine any response that would fall into the spice rack vortex. Not sure if you've already submitted, but why not go with something you know to exist?

This is starting to feel like Think Different: Extreme Edition

Baaaa

After I submitted, I came up with two things that would have gotten singletons. Granny Smith went unused on #3!

Would you have accepted "crabapple" on that one?

I thought I was going to sheep each of the first three questions, so I’m happy to be near the top of the leaderboard at the halfway point. I feel good about one of the remaining questions (I asked it on one of the TDs I hosted), but I also expect to hit the mega-sheep at the end, as I have on all of these mini-TDs.

Yes, but can it core a apple?

There I was on the answer form, entering ASCII codes, trying to make an "ñ" appear for Iñárritu, and giving up after 7 or so tries. Turns out it's Alt-0241 (Alt-0225 for the "á" I'd forgotten about), and Robert Zemeckis did win an Oscar. That was lucky.

I've mentioned several times on here that Monty Python's "Oliver Cromwell" has been very helpful with both Jeopardy! and Pointless clues. I think this is the first time I've benefited from knowing the "Medical Love Song".

So of course I drew an almost complete blank on types of apples. And the few others I thought of would have been better answers than what I picked (NPI). I should have paid more attention on the Angry Orchard tour.
