    Talk about obscure ....Flagler College and 2 questions about it.
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Talk about obscure ... NHP and I have identical scores in the exact same amount of time and he gets one more bonus point than me. Pissah!

    this one sucks... but it sure beats working!
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    WTF? Who cares about what college is directly east of you if you stand at 119th street and look to your left? I sucked at this one.

    Wow - best yet!! At least in this category!

    I guessed on 5, and got those 5 wrong. I think my guessing technique needs work . . .

    And today's score of a lovely goose egg only proves the above comment:

    I can't guess worth s***!!!

    It keeps timing out on me when I try to submit... I"m guessing I got two right.

    Edit: It looks like it finally submitted... but I only got one right. Someone who got zero is even higher than me.
