Thanks

Thanks, ixion. Something to do during the Super Bowl tonight- since my local team just missed being in it and I'm bitter.

Finally got to this- though the game hasn't even started! Got four right off, then the link before I figured out the other two. One of the answers is a Britishism I'd never heard of. Very good, ixie.
