    lastplaneout goes with Joe Crocker (sic), which I'm afraid our judges have to disqualify on account of spelling. But had you guessed Joe Cocker, who of course memorably sang the Wonder Years theme song at Woodstock, you would have scored 28.3 points and so either way, I'm afraid we're going to have to say goodbye to Dwolfson20 and lastplaneout. I would have expected him to pull out a very obscure answer, of which there were many but your host could not honestly have been certain about, either. This was surprisingly hard, even for a music lover like me (who admittedly has somehow still never actually watched Woodstock).

    Jimi Hendrix (91.5), Janis Joplin (65.3), and The Who (64.5) were the clear favorites, followed by Jefferson Airplane (45.8 and possibly the group magnet was unsure of), the Grateful Dead (45.0), Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (39.5 and my other guess at magnet's uncertain group), Santana (34.8), and Joan Baez (30.1).

    Then we came to the cluster of answers given by most of our contestants. Cocker, CCR, The Band, and Country Joe, Sha-Na-Na, and Sly and the Family Stone, with Richie Havens (25.3) breaking up the group.

    If he could have done any better than those, he would have won it. The winning answers were, from high to low points (19.3-4.5): Canned Heat, Arlo Guthrie, Ten Years After, John B. Sebastian, Country Joe McDonald (who also performed solo, leading an iconic rendition of the Fish Cheer), Ravi Shankar, Leslie West, Melanie, Sweetwater, Blood Sweat and Tears, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Johnny Winter, Incredible String Band, Tim Hardin, Quill, Bert Sommer, and Keef Hartley Band.


    And so we come down to our final two teams: LivnLegend/Billy Shears and magnet/sporr. Our category is Science. Teammates may now confer with each other and both must give their answers before scores are revealed.

    LivnLegend/Billy Shears will go first followed by magnet/sporr, and the question is: name one of the 33 constellations of the northern hemisphere that are depicted in the following image. Please note that these are part of the 88 modern constellations that are formally defined by the International Astronomical Union. These do not include asterisms, which are familiar groups of stars in simple shapes given basic common names. Be sure to refer to the diagram with the specific combination of stars.

    We just have to name one, not point out which one it is on the map?

    Such ingratitude, after all the times I saved your life.
