Title: TRIVIA NIGHT results and host registration
Post by: Alps on December 07, 2012, 09:23:45 PM
It's been hinted at, but I'd love to see people come back into our chat room. There should be at least a few people in there most nights. Click on the "CHAT" text in the menu at the top of the forum, and here's a direct link (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/chat/flashchat.php).

Now that chat is back, we ought to start having TRIVIA NIGHTS again. I think once a week proved to be too much, so let's say once a month. This thread will be used to update results of trivia nights and announce new ones. So watch this space and see when we're ready to start one up!

We need hosts! I'd like to have a trivia night soon - maybe even this week. I think in the past we've chosen midweek nights, Tues-Thurs, as a time when most of us are around and online. The format in the past has been roughly 50-60 questions, one question per state (more or less), Canadian provinces, national, even international, whatever you want to throw on. It takes about 5 hours to put together a list of good questions - some easy, some hard. Who wants to volunteer?

While I wait for a volunteer, let's get the night established. Poll open.

Respond with the NUMBER OF THE QUESTION to ring in.

CLOSEST GUESS QUESTIONS: Respond directly with your guess.

Those two things could potentially overlap and cause a spam message- maybe preface closest guess questions with a number sign or something?

It starts to get pretty tricky. The occasional spam message may happen, but the workaround could start to get more complicated than just letting it go.

Is there any trivia software that can be downloaded?  The chat room isn't a very good venue for trivia.

I see a lot of votes for Saturdays and Sundays, but truth is, I and many people are often busy or away. So, without further adieu, our first trivia night will be this Wednesday, February 13, at 9 PM Eastern Time. See you there?

to clarify: go to the drop down box at the top, and select the room marked "Trivia".

typing, literally, "Trivia!" does nothing other than make one look like a fool.  trust me; I just did precisely that.  :sombrero:

I'll be on the road beginning at 4:00 tomorrow - I'll try to get in for  a bit but I scheduled a very long drive to end in southern MISS (from central IL) on Thursday so I'm getting a head start and getting past the Quads early and sleep.

I'd like to congratulate NE2 as the winner of our inaugural trivia chat, with 29 points! (That's a lot.) He really cleaned up on his Minneapolis-St. Paul freeway knowledge. Right behind him was corco with 27 points, and to show how much of a race it was, next was Dr Frankenstein with just 7 points. Props to ZMapper, PennDOTFan, Stalin, Alex, and mgk920 for joining us and all finishing with a positive number of points as well - no one in the negative, that's a first!

If you'd like to host next time, please RSVP your spot here. I'm happy to give some pointers, but you can play with the format as you like. I'll tweak the rules here shortly based on lessons learned today. Also, we may have solved the spam message.

Had Québec not been in the trivia, I would have been deep in the negative.

By the way, a two-lane Interstate (one lane each way) runs on the east side of this national park. When you get it, you'll realize why this was the best night ever.
Title: Re: TRIVIA NIGHT results and host registration
Post by: djsinco on April 18, 2013, 02:38:13 AM
I am intrigued, as I thought by definition an Interstate Highway was never a single lane in one direction. I started to think of the Palisades "Interstate" Parkway, but I am sure you are craftier than that...

Indeed, unsigned Interstate A-4 (signed Alaska state route 3) includes several miles within park boundaries just south of the main park entrance (no entry stations or fees until you leave the highway for the main entrance), plus additional mileage right on the other side of the Nenana River from the park.

As for the questions, do they need to be road related or not?

Title: Re: TRIVIA NIGHT results and host registration
Post by: NE2 on April 20, 2013, 01:50:16 AM
Here are the questions from when I hosted. Note that these are somewhat harder than the norm.

1. ODDITIES.
This state has more than 15 separate splits of U.S. Highways into business and bypass routes with no mainline.

2. SOUTH CAROLINA.
Before the construction of I-95, this alternate route was part of the shortest chain of U.S. Highways from Savannah to Florence.

3. OHIO.
Although the Pikes Peak Ocean to Ocean Highway originally followed the National Road through Columbus, it was moved north in the early 1920s to bypass the city. The new route is now mostly this U.S. Highway.

4. MICHIGAN.
US 223 was originally part of this longer route.

5. KANSAS-MISSOURI.
Trfwy stands for this.

6. VIRGINIA.
In December 2010, the Commonwealth Railway began operating a new 5-mile mainline, including 3 miles in the median of this highway.

7. DAKOTAS.
These three highway numbers exist in or near the capitals of both Dakotas. (not a multi-part question)

8. DUMB QUESTIONS: RHODE ISLAND.
The US 6 freeway that bypasses Hartford Avenue in Providence, RI was once signed as this, in addition to RI 195.

9. CANADA.
Name the three provinces that copied the U.S. Highway shield shape. (not a multi-part question)

10. YELLOWSTONE FREEWAYS.
As the crow flies, this is the nearest freeway to Yellowstone.

11. CALIFORNIA.
List the two state routes that replaced about 85% of US 40 Alternate.

12. LOUISIANA.
This state highway parallels I-49 north of Alexandria.

13. MISSISSIPPI.
The northeasternmost point on the Appalachian Development Highway System is at NY 17 and I-81 in Binghamton, NY; the southwesternmost is where this U.S. Highway meets I-55 in northern Mississippi.

14. TOLL ROADS: ILLINOIS.
This is the only state route in Illinois to follow the entire length of a tollway.

15. TOLL ROADS.
This was the world's first fully automated toll road, opened in 1995.

16. SOUTHWEST.
The majority of former US 666 is now this route.

17. ODDITIES.
Southbound drivers on one block of Huntington Avenue in Newport News, VA are simultaneously following both directions of this route.

18. UNITED STATES.
Three-digit Interstate A is cosigned with two-digit U.S. Route B. U.S. Route A ends at a former alignment of Interstate B. What are A and B?

19. TOLL ROADS.
Not counting tolled express lanes, these are the only two tolled freeways in the U.S. that cross without any sort of interchange (though two ramps are scheduled to open by 2015).

20. ALABAMA.
This state highway connects I-65 to US 29 en route to Pensacola.

21. KENTUCKY.
The US 62-68 bypass northwest of Maysville originally had this state highway number.

22. CONNECTICUT-MASSACHUSETTS.
I-395 replaced Route 52, but mostly parallels this surface route.

23. VIRGINIA.
In 1923, Virginia added this number to its single-digit state routes; only the pre-1923 SR 5 continues to have its post-1923 designation.

24. MISSOURI.
If US 66 had remained 60, 60 would have been this.

25. UNITED STATES.
4 is the lowest number carried by both a current Interstate and a current U.S. Route. What is the highest?

26. TOLL ROADS.
In 1795, these two cities were connected by one of America's first turnpikes, which charged tolls until 1917.

27. WASHINGTON, D.C.
This unnumbered freeway could be I-366, but the speed limit is only 30 mph.

28. DUMB QUESTIONS.
The Ak-Sar-Ben Bridge carried US 6 between Iowa and this state.

29. WISCONSIN.
US 110 was replaced by a state route of the same number in the 1930s. Since then, the construction of this parallel freeway has resulted in the state giving most of former US 110 to Winnebago County.

30. UTAH-NEVADA.
These two routes connect at the state line next to the First Transcontinental Railroad.

31. TOLL ROADS.
Part of the grading for the Chicago-New York Electric Air Line Railroad was destroyed by the construction of this toll road.

32. FLORIDA.
The county containing this city was the only one to gain state highway mileage in the decade following 1977.

33. MARYLAND.
This is the only route number less than 37 that is not used on any class of highway in Maryland.

34. PENNSYLVANIA.
This northbound-only freeway was consturcted to elimitante the truck trarffic downhill into Ridgway.

35. TOLL ROADS.
When the JFK Highway opened in 1963, one could drive from US 1 south of Baltimore to the Manhattan end of this Hudson River crossing without leaving a toll-supported freeway.

36. GEORGIA.
Atlanta's Northern Arc is part of this Appalachian Development Highway System corridor.

37. TOLL ROADS.
This road switched to one-way tolling at most of its 11 barrier tolls in about 2005.

38. TEXAS.
State Highway 9 was eliminated once this parallel Interstate was constructed.

39. ARKANSAS.
Two short freeways meet at a diamond interchange in this city.

40. DUMB QUESTIONS: NEW YORK.
This New York state bike route parallels I-86.

41. ARIZONA.
When US 89 south of Flagstaff became State Route 89 in the early 1990s, this route was extended slightly.

42. NUNAVUT. CLOSEST GUESS.
How many kilometers of numbered highway currently exist in Nunavut?

43. ODDITIES.
A two-lane Interstate runs north-south along the eastern edge of this national park.

44. ODDITIES.
This is the only even-numbered U.S. Route that ends within several blocks of both international borders.

45. ASS HARD QUESTIONS: PENNSYLVANIA. FREE-FOR-ALL.
Garrett Shortcut Road has this route number.

46. ASS HARD QUESTIONS: NEBRASKA. FREE-FOR-ALL.
This route is also known as the Naper Spur.

47. UNITED STATES. MULTI-PART.
These two-digit numbers have never been used on a signed U.S. Highway.

piano 6
ian 5
zmapper -4
franken -3
route56 -1

There's question about whether Molandfreak is a lying cheater. If so, he doesn't get his 10 points from the last question. Corco would have gotten more than 1 on it in that case and might have beaten Alex.

Good game anyway, and Steve won whether or not Chewbacca lives on Endor.

1. ALABAMA.
This U.S. Route was mostly replaced by US 431 in the 1950s.

2. ALASKA.
This is the only road in Alaska with exit numbers.

3. ARIZONA.
A rural portion of this U.S. Route in eastern Arizona had an AADT of 80 in 2008.

4. ARKANSAS.
Highway 5 used to carry this U.S. Route from Hot Springs to Benton.

5. CALIFORNIA.
It is approximately 420 miles from Yakima, Washington to this city at the south end of US 97.

6. COLORADO.
State Highway 789 overlapped this route north of US 6-24 at Rifle.

7. CONNECTICUT.
This is the only single-digit route number with no freeway segments.

8. DELAWARE.
This state route used to connect with a same-numbered route in New Jersey via a ferry.

9. DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
These two one-way tunnels pass under the National Mall.

10. FLORIDA.
In 1939 the state legislature required the State Road Department to "change the name of State Road Number 19 to some other appropriate number, which does not contain the digits one or nine". The SRD chose this number, which remained on the portion between Chiefland and Ocala after the 1945 renumbering.

11. GEORGIA.
In GRIP, Georgia's program to widen roads to four lanes for economic development, the G stands for this.

12. HAWAII.
Hawaii Route Five-0 is on this island.

13. IDAHO.
This U.S. Route used to enter Idaho, but has been rerouted to the east.

14. ILLINOIS.
The Dixie Highway south from Chicago is not a U.S. Route. Instead it has carried this state route number since 1918.

15. INDIANA.
According to Google Maps, it takes 13 minutes to walk the portion of this U.S. Route in Indiana.

This state highway extends to Venice, the end of the Great River Road.

20. MAINE.
This state route connects Portland to Bangor, mostly piggybacked on other routes.

22. MASSACHUSETTS.
Before it was extended south through downtown Boston, I-93 officially ended at this route.

23. MICHIGAN.

I-59 was realigned in this city to eliminate several sharp curves.

26. MISSOURI.
The Mississippi River Trail uses special ramps onto the shoulders of this freeway to cross the Missouri River.

27. MONTANA.
Into the late 1920s, drivers on US 2 had to use the Great Northern Railway as a 'ferry' over this pass.

35. NORTH DAKOTA.
Instead of following US 81 for most of the distance north of Grand Forks, I-29 was built along or next to this state highway.

36. OHIO.
Coincidentally, the west half of SR 32 had this number before 1963, when the Interstates caused a renumbering.

37. OKLAHOMA.
Grand Boulevard used to form a complete circle around this city, but much of it has been replaced by freeways.

38. OREGON.
US 95 is called the I.O.N. Highway, which stands for this.

39. PENNSYLVANIA.
In the mid-1930s, US 120 between Sunbury and Reading became part of this route.

Name the U.S. Routes that continue, or used to continue, beyond their termini as same-numbered state routes.

48. WASHINGTON.

49. WEST VIRGINIA.
This state route used to parallel the future alignments of I-79 and I-68 from Bridgeport to Bruceton Mills.

50. WISCONSIN.
Broadway in and near Madison is appropriately signed as this county highway.

51. WYOMING.

The last two questions where each route gives someone one point makes it so someone could show up at the end and win by getting that one series correct. If multi-part questions are included with more than three answers, they earn a percentage based credit. So if there are 12 answers, and you get all 12, you get 3 or 4 points, and if you get just 3 or 4 out of the 12, you get 1 point.

Someone sounds like he wants to host! The original trivia format was established well over a decade ago in IRC chat. That's where we figured out not to give questions in ABC order by state - people were using atlases and just turning the page. That's also where the multi-part questions at the end came from. You could be down 12 to -1 and still have a chance just by being there. While people may or may not like it, it's a "classic" element of the game. Point values can also double for the last 10 questions, or you can have more bonuses.

One idea: Instead of allowing the original answered to list all of them, everyone who buzzes in gets ONE answer. Then you go back to the first person and repeat. Once you pass, you're out of the "ring" of answerers.

I like the concept of people buzzing in for those multi-part answers, so that more get the opportunity to participate in those multi-part questions. Plus it might speed things up, so we don't have 15-20 minutes per one question. I enjoyed the game, but it was already around 1130 when it ended.

You can't bring your computer or phone with you and get online? If someone else is in the car, he can drive while you do trivia. If you can't seem to get online, you could stop at a restaurant with Wi-Fi where you can do trivia and dinner at the same time.

(By the way, I won't be there because it seems to be adult chat, and I'm 14 years old. I also would end up with a negative score since most of what I know is New England, and I'm not good with the rest of the country.)

I think it's most likely you mean EDT. 9pm EST is an hour after 9pm EDT.  If you just mean whatever Eastern Time happens to be in effect, just say ET and you won't risk making an error.

Officially, this is not correct, as White River Junction is neither a town nor incorporated as a municipality.  A lot of maps and mapmakers think it's a town, but in reality, WRJ is part of the Town of Hartford, VT.

With the new chat, hosting will be much more difficult, given that there isn't any reasonable personalization like changing the text color.

In fact, how you change the text color in chat is exactly the same as how you change it in the forum.

There is actually! Go to settings, check the box that says "persist font color" and then select your font color. It even makes the tags go away

I would be interested to know what kind of internet connection that everybody who took part in the chat tonight had.  I only have DSL and I was lagging like a motherfucker.  I started to play trivia, but I would hit the enter key as soon as I read a question (and I read extremely fast) and by the time my X got to the screen the "first" person to ring had already been called on.  This chat is a shit venue for trivia.  Is there a freeware trivia program that we could get?

Is there a freeware trivia program that we could get?

IRC is still a thing.

Really though, I'm pretty sure people's connection speeds aren't a factor.  Network latency (not bandwidth) may be a factor, but so could a number of client-side issues.

*Something* is causing lag.  Whether it's on my end, aaroads' end, or somewhere in the middle, some of our internet connections just aren't as fast as others.

I've studied the IRC protocol, and if you're dealing with a single server (rather than a network with multiple servers) and that server isn't so busy as to put a strain on its resources, IRC should have minimal latency.  I don't think any other platform which relies on TCP could improve on that.

I've never actually been inside the AARoads chatroom. Maybe I'll swing-by sometime to see what it's like. I would participate in trivia.. but I don't think I would do well. At all.  :no:

I tried last night actually... Well I was there, but only to watch, not necessarily to answer questions. And the only one I tried to answer (see the Ontario question), I got wrong. :P Oh well.

I tried once. Even though I don't know a lot about roads compared to other people in the whole country (I only know New England and New York for the most part), I came in second with 6 points. I had to leave early, too. I never lost any points for a wrong answer, which probably helped.
Title: Re: TRIVIA NIGHT results and host registration
Post by: Laura on February 25, 2014, 06:25:53 AM

If I hadn't been lagging I would have come in second, as I got 19 correct answers.

What was your actual score? Corco didn't mention you in the list.

I've encountered the same problem as you, Bugo, and think its because people start buzzing in before they read the question! (I don't know enough about roads as a whole to do that.)

I would love to, except I have a giant feeling that mine would SUCK. If someone wanted to duo with me that knows what the hell they are doing, we could maybe work something out. The majority of my questions would be obtained from randomly Googling stuff. If I get enough demand, I'll take the risk of making an ass out of myself, but just know that it will be sloppy. Or maybe not? Who knows.

Well the problem is that the last winner... well... doesn't visit here anymore. Oh, and I'd love to duo with you. Would be fun! You could add Canadian stuff into the mix which I'm TOTALLY clueless about.

It can be any day, not just Wednesdays or even midweek. It can be 8 instead of 9. There's really flexibility here. Also, the only reasons we've done "winner hosts next time" are a) NE2 can't win every time and b) that way SOMEONE feels obligated to host. I'd rather have a series of hosts.

Last time I hosted a game night, no one was drunk by the time the night was over (except that one aunt).

From this, I can conclude that my abilities to host a trivia night would be poor and therefore I must be counted out.

Roadgeek_Adam = 2
1 = 2 (yes, the new math works. Welcome back to chat, 1!)
cjk374 = 1

Yes. You have to buzz in before you can answer. You get 1 point for a correct answer (the final few questions of the most recent game were worth 2), while you lose 1 for an incorrect answer. Read this (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=8741.0) thread for more details.

Alright...results from tonight's trivia!

Alps - 19 points. Started slow, but came back to win it at the end.
NE2 - 17 points. He was hampered by incorrect guesses.
pianocello - 13 points. Didn't answer a ton of questions, but almost always answered correctly. Closest guess questions were almost exact or exact in most cases.
US 89 and paulthemapguy - 11 points. Not a bad showing.
Laura - 3 points. She showed up right at the end, but got no questions wrong. If she showed up earlier, she could probably win this thing.

The full list of questions and answers will go in a separate post.

Minnesota   Which expressway in Minnesota has a median bus station?   TH 77

Only half right.  I-35W in Minneapolis also has one, and is in the process of getting a second.

35W is a freeway, not an expressway. I don't know if 77 is though.

That was my mistake. That being said, I would have accepted 35W as an answer, as I would have double-checked.

Alright, that was fun last night. Since no one has claimed next trivia yet, I thought I could host next time. Next trivia will be:

Wednesday, October 24th; 8:30 PM ET (and 6:30 PM MT -- that time zone needs some recognition)
AARoads Chatroom (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/chat1/)

It will be the same format as previous trivia nights have used, though small changes may be announced later. As always, come one come all! Last time was fun, but I’m hoping we can get some more people.

This is your friendly reminder that TRIVIA NIGHT will be held this Wednesday in the AARoads Chatroom (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/chat1/) at 6:30 PM MDT (that's 8:30 PM EDT for those of you spoiled eastern-timers who have never had a need to convert time zones).

Again, rules will follow the format used in previous trivia nights (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=8741.0).

I'm going to add this note, because I don't think it has been specified clearly for previous trivia nights: you can show up late and still play.
Most of the high-value questions are towards the end of the trivia.

Rules for tonight will follow the standard rules (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=8741.0), with the following exceptions/clarifications:

I think the lengths of US 66 and US 38 are undefined because they do not exist, and that this is not the same thing as a route which exists but is 0 miles in length.

I haven't made a trivia night yet, but I'd like to see how bad I'd do at this (why I'm in a meteorology major). Since fall term is over on Monday, or Tuesday, I'll have 33 or 34 days off before heading back so selfishly, that would be a good time, but I don't want the schedule revived around me. I just would like to know when the next one is (since I don't know much about this).

As already argued back in the day, US 138, 166, 266 and 199 could be correct answers as they could be considered to be longer than their respective parents, as they don't exist anymore.

I'd like a trivia night to be scheduled some time from August 9 to 14 both included. I explained why I could get to one during that time frame last year.

Just realized I never posted the questions from last time:



Massachusetts Name the tunnels that carry MA 1A under Boston Harbor. Sumner Tunnel, Callahan Tunnel



Minor correction.   1A southbound into Boston still follows the Sumner Tunnel, but 1A northbound out of Boston now follows the Ted Williams Tunnel.  This is because, since the O'Neill Tunnel was completed, there is no longer a direct connection between I-93/US 1 northbound and the Callahan Tunnel.  The Callahan Tunnel is signed as 1A for clarity, because there is no direct connection between I-93/US 1 southbound and the Williams Tunnel.

Title: Re: TRIVIA NIGHT results and host registration
Post by: froggie on October 22, 2019, 03:45:06 PM
^ No.  But at the same time, the latest MassDOT road inventory GIS files (end of 2018) don't even call the Sumner Tunnel part of MA 1A.

Unfortunately, the road inventory files only show the primary route along a concurrency.
Title: Re: TRIVIA NIGHT results and host registration
Post by: Rothman on October 22, 2019, 08:54:11 PM
Ok, but to me that means that the idea that 1A runs along I-90 is incorrect.

Just sounds like MassDOT doesn't know where 1A goes, or just assumes the ramps to and from the tunnels are good enough for 1A to hit US 1 and I-93.

I read MST as Mystery Science Theater, as in Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Alternatively, MST also stands for the Portuguese language abbreviation for Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement, Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (MST).

See, there are more important things that MST stands for, besides squabbling over time zones.

As long as we're allowed to change forum settings to our own time zones, how can there be any sort official time zone?

I mentioned in the chat that I thought WA might have had some colored shields back in the day. I was referring to this photo I found a few days ago, which shows some US shields with slightly different shades of...whatever color they were:

I don't know why there's so many different shades of US Routes.

Photo taken in Tacoma, WA. Approximate location here (https://www.historicaerials.com/location/47.241981598942424/-122.41097964267632/1968/18) (at the five-way intersection), looking Northwest (photo taken 1956 Nov 30):

I'm not convinced BUSINESS 302 even exists anymore.  Wikipedia's pages on it reference the state's route log (which is no longer accessible) and the state's GIS road data.  Recent versions of the latter make ZERO mention of BUSINESS 302 along 16A.

That's really cool. I was thinking that the shields might have had slightly different shades of grey or black or white, but the text photo you have in that link definitely seals the deal.

Unfortunately, Tacoma no longer has any US routes running through it, and hasn't for decades, so I'm sure those colored route shields are long gone.

Roadgeek Adam's Roads Bar Trivia
Wednesday, April 15, 2020, 7:32 p.m.
AARoads chat, in whatever form it will be on April 15.

There will be posts upcoming on rules and formats as we get closer.

Post by: Roadgeek Adam on March 30, 2020, 12:13:11 AM
So the full rules and format is definitely a bit of a different take from previous trivias. I have a friend in Corning, New York who is a DJ and does bar trivia and I like that style a bit more. (I have partaken in bar trivia). So the format is going to be fun.

There are many basic rules and one I'll have to explain a bit further down below.

a) There are 56 questions.
b) There will be 6 rounds and a final J! / wager round for question 56.
c) The scoring system will be like this:
   c1) Round 1 - 5 points (10 questions)
   c2) Round 2 - 10 points (10 questions)
   c3) Round 3 - 15 points (10 questions)
   c4) Round 4 - 20 points (10 questions)
   c5) Round 5 - 25 points (10 questions)
   c6) Round 6 - 30 points (5 questions)
   c7) Round 7 - Wager (1 question)
d) There are multiple answer and range questions.
e) 34 US states, 6 Canadian provinces, 1 US pseudo-territory, and 6 countries are represented in the questions.
f) This is not an open notes quizzer. You have your brains and your strong brains alone in answering the questions.
g) Each question except for 3 about to explain is going to be 30-32 seconds. There will be breaks of 2 minutes between R1-R2, R2-R3 and so on except for R6-7 where wagers will be PMed to me.
h) Now, this is the tough one. There will be 3 questions spread out around the game that test your concepts of logic. There is a British game show named Only Connect that airs on BBC2. I have attached a copy of an episode for you to get the idea.
Simply put, there will be questions:
 h1) I will give you 1 of 4 clues every 15 seconds. You have to tell me what the common bond is between the 4 clues.
 h2) I will give you 1 of 3 clues every 15 seconds. You will have to tell me the 4th. (No need to explain the connection, but I need the 4th)
 h3) I will give you 4 different phrases every 15 seconds. You will notice they are all missing vowels. I have also rearranged the consonants around a bit so they may not match the words. You will have 60 seconds to give me all 4 full phrases.
If I gave you the connecting wall we'd be here all night.
i) There will be no penalties for wrong answers except for question no. 56.

This will be fun to host. I may never get to host again, so I'm going full-blast on this one.

Remember, April 15, 2020 (a Wednesday) at 7:32 pm.

h2) Same
h3) The consonants will be in order, but the spaces will vary.
