Thanks for hosting! Woohoo!
Well done. [Dap!] The use-a-drop strategy worked well enough over avoiding the lifelines for the bonus at the end.

Thanks for the game Ironhorse. Yes, 39 is a good turnout and your game was quite playable with many options.

Although it doesn’t materially change the outcome, I believe that I also should have received the -3 final bonus.

I fixed it. I had originally marked Hahn wrong before I found a source marking it correct, and I had done the bonuses before that point.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Not going with 40 Year Old Virgin (instead of Colt .45s) on the first question cost me the win. If you say Scottie Pippen and I say 40 Year Old Virgin, I still beat you by 2 points.

I decided against Coulda and never even thought of Shoulda.

I did not get my submission in on time. I thought it might be fun to Shadow the TD. My score would have been 48, mostly ruined by an incorrect answer for Newton, who does not have an element named for him. That means I also forfeited the three-point bonus for no drop and no incorrect.

However, simply by participating, I would have affected the podium. By duplicating one of his answers, Matt Knowles would fall off first place, leaving Matthew Barrett there by himself. Immaf would also fall off the podium, leaving casketromance and Matt Knowles tied at 34.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.
