It was a close game, and here are the final scores: @Kaylee 12 @Cross 11 @blank 5 @Ryrin 3 @Mashiara Sedai 2 And so, leading by just a single point, @Kaylee is this game's winner! Congratulations to Kaylee, and thanks to everyone who played.

    Final Round Guess the Animal ======================= # 16: # 17: # 18:
  6. [GotAK] Guess the Animal

    My apologies for the delay in this post. I was within minutes of posting when my neighborhood lost power for six hours. That's the end of Round Five, and here are the answers. # 13: Answer: A Bat Unfortunately, no one guessed this one correctly. # 14: Answer: A Dolphin Congratulations to @Kaylee and @Ryrin for their correct guesses. # 15: Answer: An Aardvark Unfortunately, no one guessed this one correctly. So at the end of Round Five, the score is as follows: ========================================= @Kaylee 8 @blank 5 @Cross 5 @Ryrin 3 @Mashiara Sedai 2 And we're down to the Final Round. @Kaylee has a strong lead, and @blank and @Cross are tied for second place. But for the Final Round, correct answers count for double points, so it's still a close race. Good luck!
  7. [GotAK] Great Mythical Beasts

    That's funny, Elgee. Chupacabras are cryptozoological creatures that started in Puerto Rico and have since been "seen" in lots of places in North America, primarily the Southern US and Mexico. I'm not sure they've reached the status of mythical, but then I'm not sure what mythical means when it comes to animals. Why is a dragon mythical but a T-Rex not? <shrug> I've also read (I forget where) that around 200 lakes or bodies of water around the world supposedly contain some sort of cryptozoological creature. Whatever is in Loch Ness is not the only one of its kind--just the most well-known. That suggests to me that monsters like Nessie and dragons are a byproduct of human thinking. They could be a way of filling in a blank that is difficult to be filled. "What killed my cow? What carried off my baby brother? What's that sound out there in the dark?"
  8. [GotAK] Dogs

    I knew someone who thought a dog would make a terrific gag gift for a friend: "Here! It's a poop machine that you have to feed every day!"

    34 occurrences of 'dragon' in the King James Version. Some are obviously metaphor, but others... 9 occurrences of 'unicorn'

    If it looks like a duckling, and quacks like a duckling...

    I did NOT know that. What do the females do? Sit around, drink beer, and say, "I can't wait to get started on the next one"?
