I thought of met/mete, but I'd never heard of the noun definition. I wondered, if it was correct, whether it had anything to do with perimeter.
I knew it only from the phrase "metes and bounds," which is a way of describing property boundaries.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 4 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Today's (R4D5) 3-pointer seemed inordinately arbitrary to me. Like most big cities, Tokyo has twinning/sister city agreements with a bunch of other cities. Tokyo is twinned with at least three Asian capitals: Seoul, Beijing, and Jakarta - though I doubt very many people would know which years those...

I never remember whether Pearl Harbor was 1941 or 1942. Flipped a mental coin, and it came down stupid.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 4 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

The R4D3 questions were brutal for me, particularly sports finance. I would've guessed basketball on the 12-pointer, except that the 15-pointer was also a basketball question.

Also didn't even realize the name in the Galsworthy series was spelled with no h. I hope the judges are lenient, but since it's a title, I'm expecting to be dinged. There's no special rule for titles, that I know of. Here's what the rules say about spelling: SHC policy is "We want to give you point...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 4 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I also appreciated the TOM on the Zebulon clue. Are you going to accept "The Forsythe Saga" instead of "The Forsyte Saga"? There's no particular reason why you should, I guess. (I honestly thought it was the former.) But if you do, I will have my first ever perfecto. I misspelled it too. I knew it ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Olympia was a WAG, but I couldn't see 22 cities outranking the capitals of ND, MT or ID. Coincidentally enough, the fact that Olympia isn't in the top 20 cities (by population) in its state was featured on Sporcle earlier. Sporcle's HQ is in Seattle and they were embarrassed about not knowing it. S...
