Allow me to celebrate my 4/4 singletons now, as I suspect I'm going to get my comeuppance on the Jane Austen question.

You're welcome. Of course we'll gladly take just two points on it. P&P and S&S were out as expected sheep and I would not have gone with Emma either. The question was pick one of the other three.

My experience after many TDs is that the “pick a lesser known one” too often backfires. At first I was dithering between Mansfield Park and Northamger Abbey, but second-guessed myself and went with Emma. Bah!

6. ISRAEL (many answers)
Name any city in Israel recognized by the international community (i.e., stay away from those pesky disputed sectors)

Q6 ANSWERS
SpoilerShow
For this TD, I decided to open up the last question by asking for something with many possible answers - as opposed to a narrowly limited set - but only few that most people would know. Still, I did a double take when I saw that no one answered Jerusalem. I still don't believe it!

WRONG ANSWERS

:o :o :o ELIMINATED :o :o :o

Bethlehem (Part of Palestine)

Cana (Could've been anywhere, nobody knows)

Congrats to our top 1, 1 and 3! To collect your prize, DM your mailing address and I will send you a signed 4x6 of me running the NYC marathon as a clown last year. Actually, anyone who wants one can have one, even the eliminated players!

These mini-TDs take less time to write, score and publish, so I'll be back with another one before too long

These mini's are by far my favorite, and some day I'll make it to the end of one. Or not. Every game needs a sucker.

Thanks Morbeedo, these quick ones are fun. Picked the wrong question to sheep but I can only name a few cities in Israel sadly, although I should've just gone with Jerusalem.

For those of you who don't go back far enough: Ken Jennings participated on one of the older versions of a J! message board and was asked for an autograph. He met the request and of course more people then asked for one as well. He bought a batch of his photos of himself with Alex and signed them. He distributed them as people mailed him a SASE. It went on for a while until he finally had to announce an end date as it was a bottomless pit of good will.

Thanks Morbeedo for the game and lucky for me that Nazareth is indeed a place in Israel.

Wow, third place! :D :D :D That was a surprise, especially after I was so low in the rankings after a couple of questions (29th place after question 2.)

I will definitely be requesting my signed photo of the famous marathon clown, before the offer is rescinded!
