I have paid no attention whatsoever. But from the last couple of posts - Is it Any Given Sunday? (I meant the name of the movie)

I have only heard of it. Never seen it. So I don't think I'll be of any more help :(

OK, so we need to get one? or more? words to put into the pyramid from the hint "Any Given Sunday"?
The movie is about American Football, is that relevant for finding the sought word/words? or is there something completely different about the movie that we are looking for? an actor?

OK, the word we are looking for:
Is it the role he plays in the movie? coach?
Is it Al? Pacino?
His name in the movie?

Continental - al = continent?

Is "continent" the answer? Which would mean we are approaching the end if we can find a solution to "seven * continent"?

Or are we looking for the name of a continent?

Bojan Basic: How on earth were you coming up with those numbers when we were asking 'how many such Sundays were there in....'??

That should be easy. Any answer to those questions would be correct, for only "given Sundays" need be included.

Feenwelt

7 continents: the world? (if you count arctica and antarctica) Very close!

Mezzoforte

Land? Earth? This! $poiler to follow.

Mezzoforte

Bojan Basic: How on earth were you coming up with those numbers when we were asking 'how many such Sundays were there in....'?? Those were numbers of Superbowl Sundays, because that's the point of the movie.

Woubit

Mezzoforte

Is it only one word? Since you have already solved it, now you know that the answer is yes. :)

************************SPOILER**********************

Script = Java

San Francisco = bridge

Script + San Francisco = Java + bridge = JACOB (JAva-COm Bridge)

[1859, 1941] = years which represent a certain period of time

World War II = Hitler = German emperor

[1859, 1941] + World War II = [1859, 1941] + German emperor = Emperor Wilhelm II, born 1859, died 1941

Jacob + Wilhelm = brothers Grimm = Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Air = Windows = Microsoft

Lateral Puzzles = $poiler

Air ^ Lateral Puzzles = Microsoft ^(intersection) $poiler = Money = Bank = Continental Bank

Week / 7 = Sunday = "Any Given Sunday" = Al Pacino

Continental - Al = Continent

Seven * Continent = The Earth


The Earth

I'm sad now that my favourite two puzzles are being $poiled (your rulebreaker is the other one).
