A bunch of people took a wrong turn with Albuquerque, and the homes in St. Louis apparently aren’t as iconic as we’ve all learned their bagels are. Give @jmoor783 an honorary Ph.D. (Phinding Domiciles) for their performance in locating three of yesterday’s American Houses:
@cinoclav Well, that’s a mid-1800s French house in Soulard, one of the oldest neghborhoods west of the Mississippi and home to the country’s second-biggest Mardi Gras celebration (admittedly by a huge margin, heh). I thought maybe the French thing would point in that direction, but I guess St. Louis’s French history isn’t as well-known outside the city as we St. Louisans might think.
@lehigh Umm… yeah, I have a reasonably good excuse. My job may require a bit more hands on the job and off the computer than yours. I went from testing a thyroid patient, looking for cancerous nodules, to trying to figure out what kind of gastrointestinal bleeding my patient was having, to scanning a patient to make sure his cancer hadn’t metastasized.
I tried to bluff on #5 - I was at work and didn’t have time to learn to do a reverse image search from a video, so I found a wiki page of 50’s band names and picked the most obvious color name (runners up: The Flamingos and The Robins). And I promise that I didn’t look at Lehigh’s hint! I went back to delete my answer because I wasn’t totally sure I was eligible, but missed the edit window by 3 minutes. Then I put my phone on silent so I wouldn’t be tempted to see these responses until I got home. Anyway, I think it’s only fair for @tekbot to win, because them’s the rules. And also because I have no idea how to claim the coupon code I won last week.
P.S. Welcome to the forums @tekbot, stay and play with us some more! How did you figure out Ruby?
@Trillian I found Ruby and the Romantics by googling the telephone number or whatever it was on screen and Venus whatever was in the bottom of the screen. But I had nothing on the red theme so I shoehorned it into my L theme
