    congrats to pidge on her second win. But i dont remember san francisco having any ports though. VJ do you know of any other ports other than shanghai or shenzhen topping the list of busy ports?

      @Lou, There is a link to the Top 50 container ports in the first sentence after the FJ answer. The first one on there in the USA is Los Angeles at No. 19,

      LOL, Jacob. Couldn’t believe no one knew that one. I didn’t have time to post on the CotD today but was in agreement with Eric that they’d all get it, and of course, I liked the quote coincidence.

      I might be the only one who ever saw it, but there was an episode of Bonanza called “San Francisco” where Ben Cartwright almost got shanghaied.

      I have 11 clues online from this match, including the Psychology category which had my favorite clue — the $1600 opposite of multitasking one. It used to be called “paying attention.” ROFL

    Seth Wilson appeared on CNBC business channel in the 5 pm hour. He played a business version of Jeopardy along with 4 business traders. Fun to watch. I would imagine the clip will be on Youtube soon.

        Nice makeover, petit lapin.’Gonna make your own carrot beer?

        You said you got FJ from the English verb hint. That hint actually confused me, as I have never heard the word shanghai as a verb. So I ignored it, and got it from ‘the busiest container port’ part of the clue.

          I’m glad that you approve, ma diabolique pomme de terre, I wouldn’t want to incur your wrath lol. Interesting how we each came to the correct answer differently.
