This is one of those topics that when you get hooked, job productivity drops dramatically. I found I must participate in measured amounts, addition can be tough to kick.

But still one of those where you can build up so much awe inspiring, albeit use- challenged knowledge.

Lui,

Correct, your turn.

It probabely wasn't that difficult, but still it took several hours before somebody came up with the right answer (contrary to some of my other attempts, which were answered in mere minutes...)

Bruce & Brandon Lee's gravesite in Lakeview Cemetary in Seattle.

Sorry, I lived in Seattle for 8 years and every friend who cam to town wanted to see this landmark.

I'll post a new one after lunch.
