    You must be a regular laugh riot at the office Christmas party. I was a classics major with five years of Latin and two years of Greek but have yet to find an occasion to discuss the virtues of the fourth decension—or any other declension, for that matter—at work. I do, however, know every word to Adeste Fideles, so I guess that’s something.

    Maybe I should look into this! I bet I could win at least $3 for being the only one in the state to recognize the correct use of Bluebook Rule 10.2.1(f) and the proper hyphenation of compound modifiers.

    There are a lot of extra lives being used.

    Tonight only about 1000 got Q14 correct and then all of a sudden there are 3500 people answering Q15 to go for part of the $25K.
