Since it's a crossword with almost 150 words, I figured that I'd try to make it worth your while and ran a contest. The rules were this: you have to get every answer correct, solve the word jumble, and then send me a picture of yourself holding the book. (You have to put a face on the contest, you know?)
(Oh, and apologies for some late night crossword bungling, but 118 down doesn't exist - it should have be 119 down, which is the blank square immediately to the right of 118. Unfortunately, there already IS a 119 as an across square, so that makes it, um, 118.5. Sorry, guys!)
Oh, and if you have no intention of solving it yourself, the answers are here. General Tekno (and, to a lesser extent McFeely) proved that it can be done! Congrats, guys. I'll be getting in touch with you about your prizes.
PS: do ya get the word jumble? I thought it was a newspaperishly bad little clue. "Neutron laser demagnetizer cannon," weapon of choice of Action Master partner Screech, who is oddly described as an eagle scout.
For the record, I'd like to thank Jim and Bill for the insanely difficult crossword. Decided I was gonna do this thing, got most of it done, then once I reached an impasse dropped it for a bit and came back to it.
Thanks to Chris McFeely for helping me hash through the last few missing letters in the crossword, and to the people in Skype convos who had to put up with my occasional venting about this crossword and helping me out with a clue or two. You know who you are! :)
Congrats General Tekno!
I just want to know what the prize was that I passed on in favor of keeping my brain cells from mutinying.
Gratz, Tekno! :D
