Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 2/4/2020

Vintner, A, liver, Dodge City, Hawaiian, Prokofiev, Eastwood.

$7600 by my count, which with a FJ get is enough, even if you take off $2000 for saying Nimitz which according to the poll I did.

Alexander Fleming; not thrilled with it but I had nothing else Ursula Le Guin, desperation guess after dismissing Angelou and Harper Lee as dying too early I...

Getting better on the Confederate sub. Knew it was something like Hunsley, but couldn't convince myself it was Hunley in time.
Slake.
10/10 for the tournament.

Re: Thursday, June 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm curious if anyone worked their way to a solve on this FJ. It feels like something you either had before Alex was done reading (me) or you weren't going to get there at all (the contestants). I had to shove James Dean out of the conversation (not British, twenty years off, car not motorcycle), b...

I considered California with Nixon and Reagan, but since I knew two were in Texas (Johnson, Bush-43) and had a plausible third name, went with it.

Re: Wednesday, April 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A country with a whole lot of people (more than the USA) that is a democracy. That is a pretty short list. Russia was a really bad guess, especially considering he was born there. I figured there had to be some trick, something more to it than "There are two countries with enough people, and one of...

Relevant: 538: Which States Are in the Midwest?

Trying presidents led me straight to Lincoln, but I dismissed that based on figuring it's named for Abraham (correct) and not thinking of Nebraska as Midwest (eh...). Fortunately trying Midwest cities landed on Cleveland right away.

No responses for the missed clues. I considered Hillary Clinton, but ruled her out. Allende is a name I know but I couldn't tell you anything about her.

For any comic book judges on the boards:

Phoenix for Jean Grey?

I don't know if the two entities are considered separate or not.
Yes, that's fine.
