Hello and welcome to TD 420! This one is a mini, and the theme is...well...what else? Free your mind and good luck!

Rules:

1. No DROP
2. ONE (1) SHEEP allowed
3. One wrong answer eliminates you from the game. There is a bonus opportunity, which is a free guess, and won’t cause elimination if you’re wrong. For scoring purposes, an eliminated player's answers after being eliminated will still count toward point totals for other players
4. Usual TD scoring applies - your score is the number of people (yourself included) who gave the same correct answer as you.
5. There are no loopholes - ask for clarifications if you really need it, but don't try to break the game.
6. Submit answers by PM or with this Google form. Answers will tentatively close Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at 5 PM ET.

Q1 - Trees - Give a common phrase or word that includes the word "tree" or "trees" and is NOT the name of an actual kind of living tree (e.g. not "pine tree"; if I've heard of it, or I can Google it and can easily find its meaning, I'll count it). "Tree" and "Trees" themselves also do not count. Proper names or titles are allowed.

Q2 - Herb - KFC's original recipe is kept under lock and key, and under heavy surveillance, but the Colonel's second wife also allegedly had it written on the back of her last will. While KFC denies that the recipe is accurate, the Chicago tribune tested the recipe out and it did produce something that was "indistinguishable" from chicken bought at a Chicago-area KFC. Name one of the 11 herbs or spices that goes into the Colonel's original recipe (Note: although the spices are to be mixed with two cups of white flour, flour is not a correct answer; the Chicago Tribune also confirmed that MSG is added to the spice mix, but was not in the original list of 11, so MSG will also not be accepted).

Q3 - Midnight Toker - in a certain song by the Steve Miller Band, the singer says that "I'm a midnight toker." Other than a midnight toker, name something, according to the chorus of the song, that the singer either claims to be (the song lyrics say "I'm a _____"), or, according to the song's opening verse, the singer is called by some people ("Some people call me _____").

Q4 - Hash(tags) - Below are some tweets that include some of the most used hashtags of all time (with the hashtags edited out, of course). Name one of the hashtags being used. I'll use my discretion if you're close. Some of the pictures might come out a bit small - click on them to enlarge.

Q5 - MJ - Name a player, other than Michael Jordan, that started at least 3 games for the Chicago Bulls in the NBA Finals in the 1990s.

Q5 Bonus (-3 points) - a well-known part of the experience of attending a Bulls game was the introduction of their starting lineup, featuring a computer-generated animation of a bull charging through the city, and what stellar piece of music by the Alan Parsons Project?

Q6 - Marijuana - As of the time of this game, name a US state where marijuana is legal for both recreational and medical use.

I suppose it's fitting to salute one of the Celebrity J! greats on this occasion:

Here's what you do:
1. Play anyway.
2. It's just for fun and no one will pay attention or care how you do for longer than 30 seconds at any point in the game.
3. Give your best answer for #1 and stay in the game.
4. To stay in the game do the SHEEP on #2.
5. Songs often have rhymes. Take a guess for #3.
6. If you make it to #5 pick a last name and hope to get lucky.
7. When you get the call (again) to go on J! don't worry about problems with pop music and sports as they do not come up enough to worry about.

Sage advice!

#7 has me a little bummed out these days. Need to focus on other life stuff and accept that there's nothing I can do to influence TPTB. My job is to show up every year and take their test. That's all I can do!

I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

No penalty for wrong guesses on the bonus. Free guess. Anyone who didn’t guess on the bonus for fear of elimination can PM me a guess if you haven’t looked it up after the fact.

So... Has anyone sent in their survey at exactly 4:20? Or done the survey while high?

I played some 70's soft rock on the ukulele after I submitted.

Re: TD 420 - Free your mind (Q1 Revealed)

Post by SenseiCAY » Wed May 15, 2019 5:10 pm

OK - sorry for the delay, folks. Let's get this started - it's gonna be lit, as they say.

Q1 - Trees - Give a common phrase or word that includes the word "tree" or "trees" and is NOT the name of an actual kind of living tree (e.g. not "pine tree"; if I've heard of it, or I can Google it and can easily find its meaning, I'll count it). "Tree" and "Trees" themselves also do not count. Proper names or titles are allowed.

Turnabout is fair play on this one, I guess - I remember in a previous TD, I put down "crysanthEMUm" when asked for a plant that contains the name of an animal, so I had to accept "street" and variations on this one *grumble grumble*.

WRONG
---------------
(None)

SHEEP (+3)
---------------

Make like a tree and leave - 3
