I'm from Texas. Snow is pretty to see... but I can't handle the cold that comes with it.

Don't get me wrong, I loved my two week-long trips to the Colorado mountains... but those were in the summer.

I would probably actually take the snow trip if it were actually offered like that, if only because it costs so much more so I'd feel like I was winning a bigger prize

To submit beachfront resort would have been so wildly against my personal opinion that I could not bring myself to do it.

Irrelevant Players
Xalxe (49) - Mona Lisa, Sistene Chapel Ceiling, David, The Last Supper, Nighthawks

Commentary
Unsurprising to see the Mona Lisa at the top, that's basically the textbook image for "art." Here is the only fact I absorbed from my art history class in Italy: when the built the gallery where Il Davide now stands, they specifically built it to make him look bigger. No, not like that, but the way the space is designed, his head appears to break the plan of the bottom of the dome in the ceiling, tricking your eye into thinking the statue is larger and more impressive than it already is. Share this fun architecture fact with your friends to create stronger bonds, guaranteed!

Anyway, unfortunately Cheery Dog struggled mightily with this one, and it shows as he drops a level. No perfect scores this time, unsurprisingly, but D3f3nd3r and SleepyKrew both get close with 66.

Disappointed that my logic of “if people think starry night they’e bound to think of the self portrait too” didn’t pan out

Also disappointed that I went garden of heavenly delights > Guernica by like, a thimble’s worth

Surprisingly, three perfect scores with our top 3 Hollywood robots! Sadly, racefan12 is indeed the lowest scorer and drops. We also have to say goodbye to Haschel Cedricson, who got his third strike and is eliminated from the game. I'll miss his joke answers.

Commentary
I am pretty sure that last time I used this question I made the same recommendation, but if you're like me and enjoy thinking about death, I enjoyed the two Machine of Death titles, which are collections of fictional stories about people who know how they will die.

Naturally, everybody who picked Method drops a level, which leads to three people ending up on Level 5 for the first time this game! Special shoutout to Noraa, who has joined the game only to immediately drop. Sorry!
