The Thursday Quiz LXVIII

The Thursday Quiz!

This season, the Thursday Quiz is a sequence game. Arrange the ten items in the proper sequence!

Remember always the Fundamental Rules of the Thursday Quiz:

1. The Thursday Quiz is a POP quiz. No research, Googling, Wikiing, or use of reference books. Violators will lose their internet privileges. All of them. Permanently.
2. As long as you made it this far, you might as well play. It's not all about winning, you know. It's about using your knowledge and reason and making an educated guess. C'mon! It'll be fun!

Making the winner of the TQLXVIII Gold Star DrSchnell!

Right behind him were la gringissima, who takes home the Silver; Elizabeth, who claims the Blue; and my own lovely Mrs.5000, who grabs this week's lone Green Star!

So lets see, that keeps the good Dr and the Mrs tied for second on the all-time leaderboard, keeps, la gringissima in seventh, and moves Elizabeth up to thirteenth. Mrs.5000 recaptures her title as Queen of Green. DrSchnell now has two consecutive Gold Stars -- a feat achieved a number of times, but never bested. Stay tuned next week!
