On the coin flip with Jackson, I went with Jefferson.

Could not get from 3D modeling to Rubiks Cube

Jules Verne (desperation guess), La Marseillaise, Jefferson

Caxton and mercurochrome completely unfamiliar.

I said "general fault" instead of "ground fault."

5/10 for the season, including 0/4 on Monday/Tuesday. Hopefully next week I'm not playing catch-up all week.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

Ibsen Monday, Jefferson Friday. At this rate I'll have had my first 5/5 week of the season in two weeks.

France was not good to me this week. I had Hugo for the author and "La Marseilaise" for the anthem. NFC on GFCI. 7/10 to start the season.

If you had asked me before last week what mercurochrome was used for, I probably would have guessed something with developing photos.

Not 10-for-10 to start the season, but 8-for-10 is quite acceptable.

NHO Father of English Printing, but I'm old enough that I had many of my owies treated with mercurochrome (sp?)

I was spoiled for the Rubik's Cube one on Thursday. I probably would have gotten it, but can't count it. I only ended up getting O Canada (Rudyard Kipling, Little Boy, James Madison).
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Tolstoy
should have been gettable but I just didn't think of him in the :30...Rubik's cube was instant despite never having heard it used to solve problems...No hesitation on Jackson since "legacy" seemed dispositive that it was someone who followed...
I sat out GFCI...
From the depths the name Caton came to me, I had time to adjust and add the x before uttering it...I didn't know mercurochrome was no longer in use, but it makes sense now that I learn that...

New to the archive thanks to this game, the mercury-bromine compound marketed as an antiseptic also called Merbromin:

What is Mercurochrome?
6 months ago there were no mentions in the Archive, now there are 2. Yay.

Couldn't quite find mercurochrome. Answered Merthiolate, which is close, but I'm calling wrong.

GFCI was an instaget for me.

My brain was AWOL for parts of this week. Couldn't think of Canada as a French-speaking country. Couldn't pull Burning Man in time. And put me down as another distracted boyfriend who turned his head after Jefferson, incurring the wrath of Andrew Jackson.
