TD 405 - HARRISON FORD (CLOSES MONDAY)

Post by floridagator » Mon Nov 26, 2018 1:21 pm

The theme of this game is one of the leading actors of our time, Harrison Ford. Answer these questions derived from topics pertaining to the films of Harrison Ford. You don't need to know anything about Harrison Ford or his movies to play or succeed.

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.

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 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4 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.

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.

One of Harrison Ford's first starring roles was set at Zabriskie Point, one of the iconic locations in Death Valley National Park (which then was still a national monument.) Identify one of these famous settings in the largest national park south of Alaska.

Re: TD 405 - HARRISON FORD (NOW OPEN)

Post by floridagator » Tue Nov 27, 2018 9:36 pm

I have redone the aural MP3 file. When I constructed it yesterday, I was not at my main computer, and I was using a web app instead of the Audacity software. The web app put some fade space on both sides of the tracks, and a lovely lady was getting squeezed out by her louder neighbors.

Please feel free to resubmit if you want to change your answer. You may listen to the aural here.

The letters of the alphabet read by the British woman are not needed for this TD, but I put them in because my other aurals had them.

I had no idea my aurals were killing TDs. I will stop crafting aurals. For this TD, I'm sorry Indiana hasn't produced hitnakers lately. I didn't have any David Lee Roth or Jermaine Jackson.

Would you please get your entries in?

I probably had a big fat miss in there, but I knew I wasn't going to have an answer for two others.

Personally, I like the aural questions... Dunno why anyone thinks they're killing TD's.
