28. Не осилил вспомнить слова "Грэнни Смит", Маккинли забыл, с изменой перемудрил - решил, что коллаборационизм. С другой стороны, тыком попал в Эмили Дикинсон и "Великого Гэтсби".
30-сент-2015 12:18 pm
Мне с Гэтсби свезло - только в этом году прочёл. )
30-сент-2015 12:27 pm
взял 3, 8 (если с либеральным зачётом, т.е. Гренни без фамилии), 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 19, 24, 27, 28, 30, 31, 34, 36, 39, 42, 46, 47, 49.

итого 20. Без владения языком. О тамошних реалиях и подавно речи нет.

Что я делаю не так?

Я думаю, что в среде знаточья это называется "бинговость", а Боб Харрис, который Prisoner of Trebekistan, вместе со своей девушкой называл one-to-one.

Наверное, напишу пост в ЖЖ с цитатой из Харриса. А Дженнингса про похожее я уже, кажется, цитировал. )

> в среде знаточья это называется "бинговость",

Ага. При том, что в 5-м вопросе я промазал, сдуру ляпнул "Yahoo"...

> Боб Харрис, который Prisoner of Trebekistan, вместе со своей девушкой (///) А Дженнингса про похожее я уже, кажется, цитировал.

Кто все эти люди??

27.

Был такой вопрос на недавнем турнире: "Писатель Дик Фрэнсис назвал ИКС разновидностью лести. Альфред Хичкок заявил, что индивидуальный стиль – это тоже ИКС, но по отношению к себе. Назовите ИКС."

Оказывается, это пословица. :)

У меня немного меньше, правда, я отвратительно знаю английский :)
Но интересно, спасибо!
