and just like that - you've broken it.
I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.

I was elsewhere. But I pulled a 32-second entry on the trivia when I got back. You've a 1:4 chance of getting 10, I missed that.

"I pulled a 32-second entry"

What sort of English is that ?

The 9 out of 10 refers to my failing to have memorized the league results from 1896 in some unspecified American professional sporting contest. I would reiterate the unspecified, I have no clue what they were playing. Lacrosse, perhaps, or synchronized lynching, the question didn't say.

4.8, 4.8, 4.7, 4.3, 4.8 - the Alabama judge being very harsh there after that slight hesitation in tying the noose.

Not something most men would boast about was my initial thought ;)

I've never thought there was much point hanging around, not since they invented books and bedside lights.
