Most days, I try to do the Times 2 Easy Crossword. I can usually do most of it but I usually have to turn to Google to complete the puzzle.
Yesterday I had problems though. I am not a film buff and I have had very few chemistry lessons and so I needed help with 5 across and with 3 down.
I clicked on my home page and typed "dark cinema genre" and the first two hits were from Amazon. The second one was a US site about the American Film Noir. I tried again and clicked on "I'm Feeling Lucky" and this time I read " Strictly speaking, film noir is not a genre, but rather the mood, style, point-of-view, or tone of a film." Nevertheless I wrote "Film Noir" in 5 across as it seemed to fit.
Then my difficulties began because when I typed in "metallic element with atomic number 88" , a click on I'm Feeling Lucky gave me a Free Dictionary with a page for Atomic Number 88 and I learned that metalllic element with atomic number 88 was "Radium"
This didn't fit with Film Noir and I had failed to complete the puzzle.
This morning I discovered the answer should have been Erbium whose Atomic Number is 68. Never mind, even the Times gets some things wrong!! Perhaps I should join the Times Crossword Club at £9.99 per year.
