I thoroughly enjoyed this puzzle. I got five interesting puzzles that made me want to search the internet for more details. Nice job!

Since it is past 8:00 p.m. EST, I can now post my other thought ... I loved the silly putty in space puzzle. It made the Geek in me laugh.

Stan Lee sure wouldn't be smilin' if I had him in front of me right now. Despite the spelling alert, that freakin' adjective cost me seven extra letters, including three wrong guesses. Grrr.

And, hey, not to be nitpicky, but the Ghostbusters *were* slimed, they didn't slime others, right? Or am I remembering it wrong? I think this one is incorrect: "Sliming was one method by which the Ghostbusters eliminated their rivals."

On the other hand, you did not catch me by including both a "can" and a "may" in the same sentence. I might have actually -- and finally -- learned that lesson.

I thought the same thing about the Ghostbusters clue--but I'm too lazy to research the answer

A lot of good trivia in this puzzle. Fun and educational.

Lamizell, I was all set to post the same complaint about slime when I remembered something. Didn't they capture buckets of the stuff and then use it on each other playfully? But yeah, don't think they used it on enemies...or did they? Gotta watch 'em again!

Leslie, "can" and "may" were correctly used in that phrase

My favorite was Seventy Seven Sunset Strip though I had no recollection of the significance of the address even in the face of Internet photos of the awning.

Oh, I wasn't complaining about the usage. One of my Achilles heels in the WPs has been to assume a word is "can" and be bitten when it turns out to be "may." The fact that I got *both* of them in one puzzle with no error makes it a banner day.

But, but, but they are invariably used correctly.

Rule #1: Always guess N to determine whether CAN or MAY is in play.

Rule #2: Always guess I or O to determine whether IN or ON is in play.

Rule #3: Even if you follow Rules 1 and 2, it is no guarantee that you won't still screw up, if for no other reason, because your regional dialect says your way is better than the author's.

Ken, to obtain a top score you can't waste those guesses. Personally I generally pull I and N very early, but not always. Certain subjects prefer A's, others O's.

Hence my frustration a while back with a boat sinking "on" a lake. A boat does not sink on a lake.

A boat cannot sink on a lake.
