And then, as a G&S guy,

I'm guessing that this guy listened to Tom Lehrer who listened to G&S. Or maybe his dad was a major general.

Wagga: thanks for the musical interlude. Meant a lot to Anna (you remember Anna), who is not only an a capella performer but in the middle of the with the "major" issue, including physics math and music

Y'know salty, I had heard that the game of life was hard to play, but the card you just dealt was not the losing one.

For those looking for the science clues, NASA (sort of), time travel, post nuclear apocalypse and evolution theory are heavily implicated.

For the more sociopolitically oriented, in addition to the suicide pact, the president of a powerful Washington lobby was once filmed cavorting naked with two other men.

I'm looking for rules in a knife fight.

wagga -- do you agree that:

113 is about a DC2 and city lights

114 is about a big light in the sky and a zeppelin

115 is about a cat, a mouse, and James Joyce

116 is about next time I say "let's go to Bolivia", let's go to Bolivia

???

3 out of 4 is not bad.

Will post answers this evening.

In the meantime, feel free to post a new puzzle - maybe SaltyDog can convince SaltyAnna to try her hand.

I thought we did that a long time ago, and before Bolivia
Sorry, not much time to put on my thinking cap

wagga -- I'll bite (again) -- do you agree that:

113 is about a DC2 and city lights

114 is about a big light in the sky and a zeppelin (or do you want to leave the zeppelin out of it?)

115 is about a cat, a mouse, and James Joyce

116 is about I can take or leave it if I please.

Now you have them all - will post answers later...

Alan had 116 right the first time. The stunt for the scene with the line "Next time ... let's go to someplace like Bolivia" was shot within the frame of the picture.

OF course I did: "painless"; "insane asylum". So Did Alan in his first response, painless and losing card. I added the monkeys and then Alan added Bolivia, both of which are accurately identified with M Canyon.

Answer: What In The World Happened Here? CXIII: (113)

Here is the site of a ripping yarn, close to home.



"Lost in a thunderstorm over southeastern Australia, Captain R.D. Parmentier and his crew were desperately trying to find a place to land the big DC2 airliner. They were just a few hundred miles from the finish of an epic 11,300-mile race from London to Melbourne and the storm had rendered their communications equipment useless.

While radio operators on the ground tried in vain to reach the aircraft, a mayor in a small town had an idea as bright as the lightning flashing in the sky. He dialed up the city's engineer and asked him to toggle the city's lights in morse code to spell out a message: A-L-B-U-R-Y. The town's name.
"

Found on Jalopnik.

From the Jalopnik Comments (Click on All):

"And that is still the biggest thing that has ever happened to Albury. God that place is boring."

Albury is around 80 miles south of Wagga & was viewed as the competition. All this though, happened well before my time.

The racecourse (a feature of even the smallest Australian towns) is near the bottom, slightly left of center. The bigger picture was to show the Murray River and it's billabongs as a helpful clue. And North, of course.
