I've long thought that pangram should be replaced by the more elegant "Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz".
Back in the 1990s, I would sometimes muck around in the System Folder on my old Mac. I found that if you opened up any of the fonts, it would display the sentence "How razorback jumping frogs can level six piqued gymnasts" in that font.

That one blew my mind. Someone should have gotten that one even without the photo.
After reading more comments around the web I'm seeing some justification about players perhaps being unsure about which Shuttle mission. Throw in nothing to read and perhaps it's enough to cause problems for some.
I'm a bit of a space nut, but Young and Crippen should be pavlovian for the first Shuttle mission, IMO.
Perhaps the players thought they were looking for the specific shuttle namesake. I momentarily thought that, but it wouldn't have been a problem for me to come up with Columbia.

Good point. I didn't really think about that.

I had “French Polynesia” for FJ! Would they have accepted my hat one? I’m not too sure. Good show overall.
