  7. This is one of those topics that make me wonder if I’m on the same planet as the rest of you :).

  8. Greetings from planet Implements Of Destruction:

    J.J., I think you have a counting problem. In Comment #2, you gave Izzard 8 points, but only 7 in Comment #6.

    Also, are we (RTG and myself) also splitting points for #2, #10, #11, #13, #17, and #19 (in addition to your mentioned #5)?? If so, that makes me 3.5 points and RTG 10 points + bonus (15 points).

  9. I will loan J.J. a calculator and enroll him in a memory course…. I’m not sure if that’ll do it, but, it never “hurts to help” (Eek the Cat)…..

  10. You guys spect me to figure all this out? Whadda wand for nuthin, a rrrrrrrruuuuuuuubbbbbbbbbber Biscuit? I’ll Get back to ya later.

  11. Ok Here we go, hang on it’s gonna get

    Izzard: 8 points, because of the wording question 11. I also gave RtG and Jek points because they gave me the actual line from the song.I at second had taken off for not doing so but after careful re consideration…
    Point conceded to Jek.
    RtG-Jek: Lets go 1by1. Split/both get the point. #2, #10,#11,#17,#19. 1 point each awarded to both of you.
    #13 no one gave the FULL name, look at the answer at what is in BOLD. You both failed to put this word in and it is a VERY integral part of the name of the song.
    As for #5 you both gave only part of the answer hence 1/2 point each.
    The other 1/2 point was to RtG for giving most of the answer for#14 but leaving out the last 2 words hence 1/2 point ( I could have went .75)
    Jek, Guessed #s 2,10,11,17,19 correctly and #5 half right. That adds up to 5.5 in my math book.
    RtG Guessed #s 2,3,6,10,11,12,15,16,17,18,19,20. Right and #s 5 and14 were half right. That adds up to 13. plus the extra Credit 5 equals 18 points in my math book.
    I stand by these numbers and have certified them with the accounting firm of Dewey, Cheatum, And Howe.
    I hope this clears up any understanding you may have had up to this point, I am throughly confused now and will try to re enter these numbers into my quiz database and watch it blow it’s mud.
