It took me longer than I feel it should have. At first the only vague pattern I could see was city starting with 'At' then a city in the far east, then a city starting 'At' and so on.

But the Premier League is just a load of immature people running after a ball and crying when they fall over like girls in a playground. Whereas Doctor Who, though not a lot more sophisticated, actually has a plot and changes every week.

Zeplines were filled with helium, what with engineers not being idiots. The only reason some used hydrogen is because the USA refused to sell it to them.

level 61
Oct 31, 2016
I think he is saying that they typically were filled with helium. The Hindenburg had Hyrdogen, because, as FractalDoom mentioned, the US wouldn't sell any helium to them. So the question should probably be more specific.

I was spelling it wrong (with two C's) then gave up and went on. Came back to it and realized I was probably misspelling it and finally got it right. I've never seen his name in print, only heard it on the few episodes I watched with my kids. (Unless, of course, you're indicating I should have cheated and looked it up on the 'net before time ran out. I don't "win" by cheating.)

I'm sure that more than 17% know Picard, and I've watched plenty of that version of Star Trek, but not in years. His tea order is NOT one of the most memorable things about him.

He says it in pretty much every single episode and all the movies he was in. "Engage" is the only thing he says as much on the show.

I was confused by "What term refers to dipping food into a communal pot of melted cheese?". It sounds like the dipping itself is called Fondue but isn't it rather the meal itself? And couldn't just "Fondue" also refer to other Fondues like with chocolate?

'Fondu' spelling should be accepted as the word is french and that is the correct spelling in french.
