2015 STIMPY: Errata

Post by Bloodwych »

Please post any errata you came across in the set here. The set was not copy edited very well, so I'd imagine there's a fair deal. We also plan on re-packetizing at some point because that was apparently an issue.

We got into trouble and when stuff got bad
I got sent away, I was waving on the train platform
Crying 'cause I know I'm never comin' back

At the end of bonus 9 in packet 3 (Rice/Dartmouth), it says "ed, but looking for another clue for the last part"

Part II of Round 11, Bonus 5 reads:
Round 11, Bonus 5 wrote: [10] In the Argonautica, Medea does this action to her brother Absyrtus to slow the pursuit of her father Aeetes. Later, she convinced Pelias’s daughters to do this to him after doing this to a ram and putting it in a cauldron.
ANSWER: cuting his body into pieces [or dismembering him or other equivalents; prompt on “killing” or “murder”]
The word "cuting" should read "cutting."

A sentence from Round 4, TU 13 reads:
Round 4, TU 13 wrote: One of these gods brought Psyche to Eros’s palace and used Apollo’s discus to kill their mutual love interest, Hycathinsus.
"Hycathinsus" should read "Hyacinthus."

I can't imagine there are any more mirrors, but the Annie Hall tossup claimed that the obnoxious Columbia lecturer in the line at the movie lived below the Thunderbolt rollercoaster when, in fact, that's Alvy.
