Oh yeah, I sent a PM yesterday.

Why are we all posting that we sent PMs, anyway?

Apparently, some people don't understand what the "P" in "PM" stands for.

I guess if Bus isn't on top of things, his mailbox could fill up. A post in this thread serves as "proof" that you sent in your entry.

To encourage others to participate by letting them know that people are participating so it won't be a waste of time.

I have no witty comeback.

(orangcrush and I were robbed in the most recent VGT game and are the true and rightful winners, but it wouldn't have mattered if I hadn't made a boneheaded mistake).

You made a boneheaded mistake? I still can't believe I answered Super Princess Peach for a Sheep Question. What was I thinking?

OK. At this point the game is closed. Due to the holiday weekend I'm leaving here pretty early so I will put in a few answers to tease you all, and continuing next week.

Second question: Name a Supreme Court Justice.

One of these was a good answer. The other was not.

My first thought was Rehnquist, my second was Souter (due to the recent thread). Then I remembered the board's Libertarians.
