Hand up if you knew Nostradamus was a doctor. Yeah, that's what I thought. (The "predicted" key word really isn't going to help in that sense, I took it in the more literal meaning in him writing that he will be famous and, after he died, he was.)
At least I wasn't alone with my "Pasteur" guess (poll option?) even though I knew the 16th century was way too early. (But, better to have something, right?)
I recently (last month or so) watched a History Channel piece on Nostradamus, so yeah, I knew this.
Still the key word in the clue was "predicted," which confirmed for me that you really, really need to read clues carefully because the writers will very often slip in these nuggets of information that seem like no big deal but are actually HUGE hints.
This is the second game in a row that I've gotten FJ handily while the contestants were 0/3. At least this time I didn't win from the fourth podium because Tucker properly wagered small and I didn't have quite enough LT to catch him.
LT: pharmacist, Long Island, Berlin, ganglion, and Alexander Nevsky. which I knew mainly because when I sang with the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus we performed the Prokofiev cantata "Alexander Nevsky." Odd how stuff from just all over comes in handy on this show.
