Avenues A, C, & D
4th & 10th Avenues
Columbus, Lenox, Manhattan, St. Nicholas, Morningside, Convent, Haven, Nagle, among others!
Doesn't affect the scores, but 4th = Park and Columbus = 9th ;)
Well, yes, you're right! I probably would have counted them separately since they're different segments of the same thoroughfare, as opposed to 6th/Avenue of the Americas and 7th/Fashion Ave which are the same

Not a Columbia alum, but have frequented the area on most of my trips to NYC. Couldn't recall if Amsterdam and Morningside were streets, drives, or avenues! Luckily it all worked out.

I'm feeling cautious about being in first place. I'd much like a three peat but fear a comeuppance. I worry that somewhere out there is a bottle of cream of tartar with my name on it.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

6. FAANG (6)
Name one of the 5 so-called FAANG stocks, OR the person who coined the original term FANG (with one A)

Q6 ANSWERS
Spoiler
Many of you expressed your stern disapproval of this question. I've heard the term enough times in various media that I assumed most people would know it. In retrospect, I could have given some more information to help out the rest of you. Oops!

FAANG stands for the original FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) plus Apple. Jim Cramer first used the term in 2013.

Have any of you ever attended the Olympic games?
Lived in Southern California most of my life. Los Angeles in 1984, baseball at Dodger Stadium and soccer in the Rose Bowl. I definitely didn't appreciate the opportunity to go watch them as I was 9 years old then. I'll have to do it again some other time.

Have any of you ever attended the Olympic games?
Lived in Southern California most of my life. Los Angeles in 1984, baseball at Dodger Stadium and soccer in the Rose Bowl. I definitely didn't appreciate the opportunity to go watch them as I was 9 years old then. I'll have to do it again some other time.
I've never gone either, but they never came to NJ :lol:

Thanks for the TD. Morbeedo, we know you were the streaker at the 1976 Olympics.

6. FAANG (6)
Name one of the 5 so-called FAANG stocks, OR the person who coined the original term FANG (with one A)

Q6 ANSWERS

Many of you expressed your stern disapproval of this question. I've heard the term enough times in various media that I assumed most people would know it. In retrospect, I could have given some more information to help out the rest of you. Oops!

FAANG stands for the original FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) plus Apple. Jim Cramer first used the term in 2013.

I never heard the term but sussed it out pretty easily even though I had trouble with the G for Google instead of the A for Alphabet. The F'ing facebook was enough, along with Apple that makes two companies that need to be broken up.

Thanks for the mini, these are still my fave. I gather from my elimination (for giving 1988 Seoul site) that this is not the year 1999? Are you sure it isn't a Y2K glitch on your end?

Fifth was the only avenue I knew (because Trump bragged about how he could get away with shooting someone on it) and I had no doubt it would sheep, and I did save myself a point that way.

I nearly guessed Ninth Avenue, but chickened out.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

A fitting end for a decidedly mediocre performance from me. I knew undecagon would sheep. Should've gone with "kite" for that one.
