Re: Thursday, October 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The 4th "Guy Mannering" clue in the J-Archive, and the first with a correct response! (Also the first without a reference to the Dandie Dinmont Terrier, for the record.) Congrats to Geoff for breaking the jinx. Heads up. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier and its Walter Scott connection come up once every 1...

Re: Pavlov revival

Numbered poem = Emily Dickinson I wouldn't say Dickinson's poems are particularly known for being numbered...especially since she didn't number them herself. They're known by their first lines, and that's how J! refers to them. That's how J! refers to them = the reason it's a Pavlov! Yes, their fir...

What other 1800s poetry collection could it be besides Leaves of Grass? I did have to read the question a couple times to get the hint. Wow.
