Was expecting something tricky for FJ such as West Africa or Pacific islands. The actual FJ was instaget for me. :mrgreen:
With a category of Western Hemisphere Geography, those would have been tricky indeed.

Got FJ but only had 90% certainty because I wasn't absolutely sure that Guatemala was farther north than Honduras. But went the right way.

I’m getting *a lot* of crap for this answer so this makes me feel better, even though in retrospect “mummy” was very obvious.

All in the Familly. Hmmm ... Maude? Nah, All in the Family.

Personally, I thought the Fawlty Towers response was pretty darn funny.

Instaget FJ. My daily commute takes me past the spot where Allende's Defense Minister, Orlando Letellier, was assassinated by a car bomb (also killed was his assistant, Ronni Moffitt) under the orders of the Pinochet regime. I was supposed to be doing work that includes the SNL studios starting in M...

And they're all flocking to JBoard!

It might be a sizing issue with the database. Hopefully we'll get it figured out.

I wouldn’t say it was close to Q-Anon. From what little I have read about it, it sounds like a bunch of really nutty people that wear tin hats and are rather racist. The Mandela effect is just stupid. It was this part of IronHorse's description that caused my to think it was like Q-Anon: "and depen...

From an article by The Washington Post TV critic Hank Steuver about what to watch during these difficult times: Even during relatively peaceful times, I hear from readers who insist that TV offer escape — and only that. They can’t handle intense dramas. They have a common list of triggers (violence,...

Several increasingly off-topic posts have been moved to the relevant thread. PLEASE, people, keep in mind that there is a specific thread for that purpose. I, too, am fond of pangolins. Just not for eating. I was in Seville last summer. Neat place to visit. Though it is thought that Columbus started...

McCartney's position is that the lyrics are actually sung as, "the world in which we're livin' " with a barely-audible "R" and a dropped "G".
Now see, that's the way I've always heard it. But then I live in a place where "r"s and "g"s are optional nonexistent.
FTFY.

Re: Learned League 84

Thorsten now has unlimited advanced access for the rest of the season if you need it. I also noticed you can now block people from tracking you if you want. Is there somewhere to see if you are being tracked? And are you saying you can select who tracks you, or just make it so no one can track you?...

Doesn't matter, because of the leading-article rule. I thought that was for when the response is the title of something, which this clue makes clear is not the case. They say this "completes the final line" which means according to the judges the play reads "I’ve now realized for the first time in ...

With the cancellation of March Madness, the Florida senate has passed a resolution declaring the Florida State Seminoles the 2020 NCAA basketball champions by a vote of 37-2. Discuss.
