I'm a bit busy today, so T is for Take This Opportunity to go win a copy of Lyon's Legacy by Sandra Ulbrich Almazan.
Sandra's book is a great one, and worth the time to read -- and all the more so if it's free. Find out more here,

Yesterday's WHAMMY! question prompted four wagers and only three answers. Which means that both answerer number three and the entrant who didn't answer BOTH WHAMMY!ied.
Answerer number 3 was:
The Emperor Blutonatine! Having wagered 3,830 points, Rusty is now back at zero, while we have a new leader, by just 17 points:
All Hail Sith Lord Darth Dilloway!
PT Dilloway now leads the Blogathon, with Andrew hot on his heels. (The official standings are here.)
Michael Offutt, who wagered but didn't answer, has likewise dropped back, that being a de facto WHAMMY!
NOTE: Rusty is only back at zero because initially I thought he wagered all his points but then I remember he wagered only 3,830 points, so Rusty, if you can remind me how many you had because I changed the post before noting that, you'll get some points back.
To satisfy your craving for something Star Wars-y, here's a video:
That's a video I used to teach Mr Bunches to love Star Wars after accidentally scaring Mr Bunches with Star Wars. Last Friday, I thought I would introduce Mr Bunches and Mr F to Star Wars via the only episode I could find on DVD, Revenge of the Sith.
It did not go well, at least with Mr Bunches, who watched only the very beginning intro to the DVD and found the spaceship and Yoda to be too frightening to sit in the room and who fled to his room to watch Peter Pan.
Mr F, meanwhile, paid no attention.
I'm not sure what made the DVD intro too much to handle for a kid who likes to watch Monster House as he falls asleep:
But to fix things, since I don't want my youngest warped into not liking Star Wars, I showed him that video and he loves it again -- at least the Lego version. So if I could get George Lucas to remake the entire set of films in Lego Version, I'll be set.
Here's today's question, worth 13 points.
How many Arakyd Flex Tube proton-torpedo launchers does a Y-Wing Fighter have?
Commenter number 4, and the last commenter, get 10 bonus points each.
