The first segment was categories 4-6 completed and that looked unusual on my scoresheet. cheezguyty, when was the last time that happened?

Aaron ended Lindsay's chat perfectly with the Ashley wisecrack. When Aaron called on Mark it sometimes sounded curt in manner and made me feel like a soldier not quite at attention.

Dr. Oz had a couple of phrases that were his and Aaron uses one I can't recall others using as he calls for, "Pencils down" after the think music.

Not that it ended up making much of a difference, but Lindsay lost 4000 on DD2 and then only gained 2000 on DD3. It can be tough for players to bet big on a DD after losing a lot on a previous one. Lindsay had the chance to prevent the lock and if she had done that then Patrick's total could have been $1,100 higher. No big deal, unless Patrick wins exactly four games and his money pace stays about the same.

The FJ! category had me expecting some kind of terminology word origin and not picking out a specific person.

The FJ! clue had me looking for something, anything to write. Doing Newton to gravity, I wrote G-force for a horseshoes, nuclear weapons miss. :( The opportunities were there in high school and/or college to have taken the kind of courses that would have paid dividends playing/watching J!, but did not happen.

If you can remember that Newton's most famous equation was Force = mass times acceleration, then it's a multiple choice of three. I chose mass because I am a science idiot.

This is one of the very few categories that would have tempted me to risk a Clavin, were I in position to do so. Another appeared in what would have been my fourth game, if I had won my third. (Yes, I had correct responses on both occasions.) --Bob

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Fg = G(M1)(M2)/r^2

Force of gravity = Gravitational Constant(Mass of object 1)(Mass of object 2)/(square of the distance between them)

For J9 I'd suggest capitalizing Deep, Dark Secret since it's the name of the cocktail.

Yikes, if that is true I wonder how many lower case errors I have for archiving other cocktails?

Not to be rude, but wanting to be sure, can someone else chime in, please?

In most cases, I could go either way. In this case, it looks odd to me, as though the cocktail is being compared to a deep, dark secret.

This is a little like chess and checkers vs. Life and Monopoly, no?

Manhattan, capitalized, right? (See below!) But Screwball? Bahama mama or Bahama Mama?

The following website has this advice:
https://www.quickanddirtytips.com/educa ... ercase.%3E
Some cocktail names are easy to figure out because they go by the standard capitalization rules. If they don’t include something that would be a proper noun, such as a person’s name or a city name, don’t capitalize them. So “mimosa,” “mudslide,” and “pina colada” are all lowercase. ... Drinks that had a person’s name, a country name, or city name [you would think] would also follow the standard capitalization rules: they’re proper nouns, so they’d be capitalized. But that’s not the case because these names fall into a special category: they’re not literal uses of the proper nouns. For example, most dictionaries and style guides recommend keeping “manhattan” lowercase when it is the name of a cocktail, because even though the name is derived from the city name Manhattan, it’s no longer associated with the city. They also recommend lowercase for “daiquiri,” even though the cocktail name comes from a city named Daiquiri in Cuba. But sometimes it's hard to tell whether the drink name is still associated with a person or place. “Bloody Mary” is sometimes capitalized, for example, because it was the nickname for Queen Mary I of England. But I didn't know that until I looked it up. It turns out Mary I ruled during a time of significant religious strife, and she had so many Protestants killed that they gave her the nickname “Bloody Mary.” You could argue that the cocktail name is capitalized because "Mary" is a name, but "Margarita" is a Spanish name, and yet when you call a drink a margarita, it's lowercase. “White Russian” is also sometimes capitalized. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, “White Russian” is the name of a language and a group of people in the region that used to be Russia. ... Pick a style and be consistent. ... The Chicago Manual of Style has the clearest rule: don’t capitalize these terms unless the names literally refer to the city or person. For example, Chicago says don’t capitalize “swiss cheese” unless you’re talking about cheese that comes from Switzerland. Following the Chicago rules, you wouldn’t capitalize the “french” in “french fries” or the “irish” in “irish coffee.”

Code: Select all

Chicago Manual of Style	AP Stylebook	Merriam-Webster Online
bloody mary		bloody mary	Bloody Mary
manhattan		manhattan	manhattan*
irish coffee		irish coffee	Irish coffee
bellini**		Bellini		Bellini
french fries		french fries	french fries***
swiss cheese		Swiss cheese	Swiss cheese
* The entry includes a note that “manhattan” is often capitalized.

** Inferred from Chicago’s comments about other words and examples.
Me, I have always written French fries, but scotch tape. I need an aspirin (Aspirin?).
