Re: Friday, June 12, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Macbeth clue was a weird one. I buzzed in and got it right, but I wasn't 100% sure that they weren't named somehow. I figured out quickly enough that if they were named, there's no way they'd ask WHICH witch They were named (First, Second, and Third witch). They all spoke those two lines ...

I stood and stared at FJ for probably 10 seconds before thinking about who got stabbed a bunch. Got JC in plenty of time.
Well, since you took a little jab at me before, I'll ask ... which JC?

Right. My point was, February 4 to March 10 ≠ "late February."
I suppose he was just referring to this year with that comment.

Re: Wednesday, June 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

HQ once got a lot of people out by asking what season Julius Caesar got assassinated; everyone tends to think of March as spring, but only the last third of it (give or take) is. On a related note, I was perplexed when Alex said that Ash Wednesday is in "late February." I was born on Ash Wednesday,...

Despite what John Denver might have told you, the Blue Ridge Mountains are not in West Virginia. The USGS disagrees with you. See https://geonames.usgs.gov/apex/f?p=138:3:0::NO::P3_FID,P3_TITLE:1023842,Blue%20Ridge That page says it only passes through the easternmost County in the Eastern Panhandl...

Born in '65. This one was a gimme. But I can imagine someone even a year or two younger not knowing the name at all.
'66. Still a gimme.

Have always guessed Merrimack for Confederate sub and gotten stung every time.
The easiest thing to remember is that the Merrimac was not a sub, it was an ironclad.

They'll take 'nucular' and not bat an eye, so seems hard to believe they wouldn't.

Is this the Jeopardy debut for the KKK? Not the best time given current events (if there is a good time) to mention them.
Not even close. At least a couple dozen as KKK and Ku Klux Klan.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I added 5/10/95: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6687 Todd deserved to lose for missing DD3 although it turned out not to matter. Why? That's a strong-ish category for me and I didn't get it right. Guessed Christina Rossetti. Not familiar with The Barretts of Wimpole Street ?

(And don't forget either that he confuse him with DH Lawrence, who lived in New Mexico.)
I don't quite make that mistake, but do sometimes call him T.H., instead of the correct T.E.. I just stick with "... of Arabia" when possible, like tonight. :)
