The Rumpus Room / Re: Can you solve this riddle?

Can't be 'u'. If 'often during a month' means January, February, June, ..., then 'never during a day' would have to include Tuesday, Thursday, ...

I have a bottle of rum and no cola. What else could I mix this with?

The end of Super Mario World on Gameboy, partially because the music is so incredible. When it breaks into that chillout tune as the spaceship flies off...I'm welling up now. :~(:)

Hint/giveaway: the first event happened in 1867. The second in 1982. ;)

Two part question: What monarch confederated Canada? What monarch oversaw Canada taking charge of its own constitution?

Hello! I would also be interested in this.

I'm so happy to see an update on this game!  I was worried it may have been abandoned.  Thanks for sharing!

I've been working on it this whole time, but I really had to get the working demo, website etc. set up quickly once I learned my game made it into the showcase at WordPlay 6, which is a one day free festival at the Toronto Reference Library (in Ontario, Canada) on November 10 from 12-5pm.

Any Canadians/Ontarians/Torontonians are welcome to stop by the event this Saturday to play the demo, meet me, and discuss the game! ;-D

Oh, here's the WordPlay site: http://handeyesociety.com/wordplay/

Wish I were home. I'd totally go - the lineup looks awesome. I didn't know we Canadian adventurers had enough critical mass to throw one of these!

Good luck today!

Hi, I'm also an incoherent ignoramus, but is it possibly Verdi? I learned ages ago he rose to lead the nation on some wave of patriotic fervour, but no idea if he was the 'first' of the Italian Republic.

This has to be Ireland and England, no?

^^Yes, you got it. A letter from Qianlong, Emperor of the Qing Dynasty, to King George III discouraging attempts to trade in Chinese markets. A few decades later, the British Empire would force entry through the Opium Wars. http://academics.wellesley.edu/Polisci/wj/China/208/READINGS/qianlong.html

Your go!

Yep, it was a British king. Can anyone get it more specifically than that...?

Sure!

Name either the person who wrote the letter this excerpt is from or the person who received it:

"Swaying the wide world, I have but one aim in view, namely, to maintain a perfect governance and to fulfil the duties of the State: strange and costly objects do not interest me. If I have commanded that the tribute offerings sent by you, O King, are to be accepted, this was solely in consideration for the spirit which prompted you to dispatch them from afar. Our dynasty's majestic virtue has penetrated unto every country under Heaven, and Kings of all nations have offered their costly tribute by land and sea. As your Ambassador can see for himself, we possess all things. I set no value on objects strange or ingenious, and have no use for your country's manufactures."
