With Trigirl being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. Just don't lock clear her for tone. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably just be murdalated.

There are too many of these that I just don't know, so I think I'm going to pass this time.

Research allowed or no?

Missed that research is allowed for 11-15, so presumably no research on 1-10?

Might restrict the player count/ability, but I'm going to go with my original gut/intent and say no, with the exception of 11-15 if needed (you don't know Pokemon starters, for example).


I think you'll find that a lot of people will leave things blank then because a lot of them are very specific.

I'm very curious to see if there is a possible valid response for one particular question.

Haha, I am so glad. I answered something, which was the closest thing I could think of, but I didn't think it was really a valid answer. I thought it was just a hearing person thing!

There are only two 1 letter words (in English), so it's a coin-flip the way I read it.

Eh. It seemed fine to me. I thought of answers for all but one of the first ten fairly quickly.

I feel like some of these are acronyms rather than abbreviations. (Though irwin's "MD" could be short for Maryland, I now realize. It was my original answer until I hit the acronym question.) I was a little afraid that you'd be technical on that Elias once I saw there was a separate acronym question. I'm glad you weren't, FWIW, and it is what pushed me to change to Mr!

Doesn't it need to form a word to be an acronym? Aren't acronyms just a subset of abbreviations?

Oh man, I hadn't thought about the Colts, I think I broke my contractual obligation there!

My husband and I were planning to move to northwestern Indiana right after the wedding, and people had asked a lot of questions, one of which was which local sports teams we would support. That area of Indiana gets entirely Chicagoan TV, so this was a serious, if inconsequential, question. Then a fortuitous thing occurred: the Super Bowl preceding our move was the Bears vs the Colts. With no dog in that race yet, we declared our long term loyalty a prize to be won.

I expected the next few to have a variety of answers, but the sheer number of different answers was interesting. Plus, I learned a few new acronyms.

UNICEF - 2 - Smugvid, Rorab



Smuggles!!! I was so sure I'd be alone with UNICEF!

Also this is the first answer I've not matched Royal on! If only we were this in-sync in the Like Minds PBF!

There are definitely a few answers for 6 which are not acronyms by definition (even the one I put). Thank you generous sheep herder mod.

This was the hardest question for me by far, and I also feel really silly! I dig Spyfall, I've considered running some kind of Spyfall-WW thing.

btw, if anyone feels like following my train of thought to Indonesia, it went like this:

Obvious/big countries?

Canada - no
US - no
UK - no
Russia? - no

how about Asian obvious countries?

China - no
Japan - no
Koreas - no and no

Welp, i'm in Asia, might as well go south

Thailand - no
Vietnam - no
Singapore - no

SOUTHEASTER-ER

Malaysia - no
Philippines - no
Indonesia? - yes. No more thinking.

It definitely is. I think I went to Liechtenstein and Luxembourg immediately when I read the question before I slapped myself and said "no, big countries first".
