    1 A law in physics relating to volume pressure and temperature of gas.pressure x volume = a constant temperature. Apologies to “doggy” Little c. 1958 if I am wrong.
    2 Alinghi (sic) Brad Butterworth
    3 could be a lady I know who couldn.t grow mould in a rubbush tin but ‘Just Loooves Jewels’.
    4 John Perriam of “Bendigo Station
    5 Anne Scanlon discovered Shrek during a muster And “Cage” Daniel Devine carried him out

    Ok here we go

    (1) Its the simplest form of the IDEAL GAS LAW where temperature is kept constant

    ie PV=k a constant

    the full form is

    where P=Pressure
    n=number of moles
    R=ideal gas constant

    My sort of question: whoopee

    (2)Alinghi skippered by Russel Coutts

    (3) Mae West

    but after this you have got me with (4) and (5)


  3. Paul Tremewan says:

    1 The Classical Gas law; the old pressure and volume wheeze
    2 Alinghi, and Brad Butterworth, former New Zealand citizen
    3 ZZ Gabor
    4 Jeff Wilson… he’s from down your way?!
    5 You left off the second part of the question, which might have gone: ‘and what’s his birthday?” Anyway, at a guess; Poneke


  4. Woollcombe says:

    1 Something to do with gas pressure?
    2 Allinghi
    3 Mae West? Or is it a line from a Marilyn Monroe song?
    4 Sounds like a high country station publication. Say: One of John Hore’s whanau??
    5 No idea. (In fact all of the above are guesses.)

    2. Alinghi skipped by NZ yachting mercenary Brad Butterworth.

    3. Mae West – got to be this time almost every one else says so.

    5. It wasn’t `youf farmer’ was it while he was out looking for a christmas tree that year?


  6. david w says:

    1) The special case of the ideal gas law they teach you in high school chemistry
    2) Alinghi with Brad Butterworth on the helm
    3) Since all quotable quotes originate from or are attributed to about 7 people this one must be one of Zsa Zsa Gabor, Mae West or Dorothy Parker. Since the latter is likely out for this one I’ll go for Zsa Zsa.

    And, I’m afraid to admit I’m just too much of a townie to know the last two 😉
