<insert annual gripe about USA centricity>

But thanks a bunch for posting this John. This event is something a lot of us canucks look forward to all week at WBC.

(And I think I may have made up the word centricity)

Thanks again for running such a great event! It is a great way to wrap up the best 9 days of the year. Both your topics and your presentation are top notch.

Can I nominate Greg Crowe for AGM of the year?

I scored 51 for 25th place at age 55. I am aiming to score my age in 2017, though I am afraid I am at the point where scores trend downwards.

250 days until Facts in Five, 2017 edition!

I pledge to get more sleep before next year's attempt, so that I might be able to get back up the list a bit. 47 points for 38th place kinda sucked...

In a stunning turn of events, I managed above average for one of the rounds. Thank you Dietary Elements category.

Thanks, John (and Greg and Jason)! I hope to be able to play more than 2 rounds next year. (I am puzzled about why I'm shown as scoring 6 in Round 4, since I think I left after Round 2 to play in the Puerto Rico quarterfinals!)

Always happy to! And I swear, each year I get a little less US-centric. Heck, Tim Horton's was a valid answer to one of the Round 5 questions...

Thank you very much! And I keep putting Greg in for his work; he saved my bacon last year and always does an amazing job helping me.

Sleep is the little death, my friend. Is giving up any other game really worth moving from 38th to 37th?

Practice makes perfect!

That's very strange - I must have put someone else's score in your column. I'll go double-check that.

The fact I was moving in a rather Zombie-like state by the time FI5 came around was testament to the fact that sleeping a few extra hours during the week might have been a good idea. I am pretty sure I can try to schedule a nap for sometime Friday or Saturday to attempt a small refresher (heck, it might have helped me win my COB semi that Saturday too, I know I took a few extra seconds each turn in that game simply due to fatigue.

Took my own advice this year and slept in that morning. Definitely helped (look for pictures of my 3rd-place plaque!)

Much appreciated it was, too. I mentioned to John that including both this and metric prefixes (not to mention *English* authors!) almost made up for my complete lack of knowledge regarding TV or film.

It would be very interesting to see how many people gave each answer. [OK, I admit, I am curious whether anyone else knew 'Independent Unionist' ]

Having looked it up, I think Independent Unionist is merely a self designation, and not an official party. I wrote merely "Independent" which I now believe is correct.

I believe I met my goal of 56+ at age 56, thanks to the somewhat easier categories.

My next goal is to see how long I can continue scoring my age.
