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.

My pronoun preferences are fairly easy going, though, and as long as you don't correct OTHER people's pronoun usage, you can call me whatever you want.

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".
