I was a little bit surprised that even the people that picked Q1 as a wheelhouse bonus mostly skipped Hawking. I wanted to throw a little wrench in there by not using a picture of him clearly in a wheelchair, but maybe that threw people off a little too much.

Q3 asked you to remember a movie released in 2018:

Q3. Movie title required. For movies that are parts of a series, you must give enough of the title to differentiate it from other movies in that series or universe. Name one of the top 10 films released in 2018 by US box office gross (according to Box Office Mojo, researched on 12/31/2018). To help you out, I’ve given you the US box office gross as well as the SECOND actor/actress listed as a star in that movie on IMDB. You do not have to specify the movie's position on the list - you just have to name a movie on this list.
  1. $700M, Michael B. Jordan
  2. $679M, Chris Hemsworth
  3. $609M, Holly Hunter
  4. $417M, Bryce Dallas Howard
  5. $318M, Josh Brolin
  6. $265M, Cameron Seely
  7. $220M, Henry Cavill
  8. $217M, Evangeline Lilly
  9. $214M, Woody Harrelson
  10. $213M, Michelle Williams

Re: TD 409 - 2018 in Review (Q3-Q4 revealed)

Post by SenseiCAY » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:19 am

On Q4, you were asked about some stores that are (or were) in dire financial straits. Probably killed by the Millennials or something.

Q4. Letter and answer required. In March, Toys “R” Us filed a motion to liquidate its assets, meaning it would close or sell all of its US locations. Choose a letter below and name one of these stores that either no longer exists or may be on the brink of bankruptcy.
  1. Nearly bankrupt when Tandy acquired it in 1962, this retailer sold half of its stores to Sprint and closed the rest in 2015, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February of that year, and again in 2017.
  2. Primarily a mall retailer, this store claims to have pierced over 100 million ears worldwide.
  3. On December 26, 2018, this store, ubiquitous in shopping malls, had its stock price fall below $1 per share for the first time since beginning trading on the NYSE in 1929. The store owns private brands such as St. John’s Bay and Worthington.
  4. Once based in Chicago, this retailer had the largest domestic revenue among US retailers until Wal Mart overtook it in 1989. It merged with Kmart in 2005, and, after years of declining sales, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in October of 2018.
  5. Another defunct chain of toy stores, this retailer was founded by brothers Harry and Joseph Kaufman and ceased operations in 2009 after being sold to Toys “R” Us.
  6. This is a retailer specializing in electronics and high-tech lifestyle products. Having closed its retail locations by the end of 2008, it was relaunched online and as a catalog in 2009, and its products can also be found in third-party retailers including Target and Bed Bath and Beyond.
  7. A pizza chain commonly found in mall food courts, its logo features a red and green outline of a pizza slice and “NYC 1956,” referring to its origins in Brooklyn. Michael Scott refers to it as his favorite New York pizza joint in an episode of “The Office.”
  8. A tea company acquired by Starbucks in 2012, all of its stores were closed by 2018.
  9. Until it ceased operations in 2016, this company owned the naming rights to Broncos Stadium at Mile High.

It figures that I would forget that last year was the one year since I've been alive* that Alabama and Clemson did not meet in the CFP final.

Question 5 brought us back to our childhoods (at least the childhoods of those whose parents let us have Lucky Charms).

Q5. Marshmallow shape required. This past year, Lucky Charms (the cereal) added a permanent marshmallow for the first time in 10 years – the Magical Unicorn. Other than the Unicorn, name any marshmallow shape that has existed as a permanent OR special edition marshmallow in boxes of Lucky Charms cereal.

Re: TD 409 - 2018 in Review (Q5-Q6 revealed)

Post by SenseiCAY » Thu Jan 10, 2019 3:03 pm

Q6 was a music question, and taking recent feedback into account, it wasn't an aural.

Q6. Album name required. See Q12 for a related bonus opportunity. There was a bit of an uproar this past summer when, after updating sales numbers, “Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975)” by the Eagles was named the best-selling album of all time in the US, at 38 million copies sold, supplanting “Thriller” by Michael Jackson (with “only” 33 million copies sold). Regardless, “Thriller” is still the best-selling studio album of all time, both in the US and internationally (as the Eagles’ album is a greatest-hits/compilation album). After “Thriller,” according to Wikipedia, name one of the next 12 all-time best-selling STUDIO ALBUMS (not compilations, live, or greatest hits albums) in the US. Their years and artists are listed below:
  1. The Eagles, 1976
  2. Led Zeppelin, 1971
  3. AC/DC, 1980
  4. Fleetwood Mac, 1977
  5. Guns N’ Roses, 1987
  6. Shania Twain, 1997
  7. Boston, 1976
  8. Garth Brooks, 1990
  9. Metallica, 1991
  10. Alanis Morrisette, 1995
  11. Pink Floyd, 1973
  12. Bruce Springsteen, 1984

3. econgator [s] - 20 (+4)
2. casketromance [d][s] - 16 (-1)
1. jbeltz [d][s] - 14 (+1)

We have jbeltz climbing into the lead and switching places with casketromance. clt013 makes a large jump to the brink of the top 10, woof makes an entrance, as does BlueberryPlainsNever. Peter the Accountant and econgator take big leaps as well.
