Tuesday’s answers

Monday’s questions were:

1. What is Boyle’s law.

2. Which yacht won the last America’s Cup and who was the skipper?

3. Who said, “I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.”?

4.Who wrote, Dust to Gold?

5. Who was the musterer who found the hermit merino Shrek?

Gravedodger gets four points – and a fifth, with a bonus for fooling me by being cryptic, if his answer to #3 means Mae West.

Andrei gets 2 plus a 1/2 for #2 and a bonus for the very full answer to #1.

Paul got 2 right, a 1/2 bonus for creativity for his answer to #4 which was lost for assuming – wrongly – the musterer was a bloke.

Woolcombe got #3 right and gets 1/2 for each of  # 1 & 2.

PDM got 1 for #3 (and a bonus because it was his repeated answering of Mae West which sent me in search of a quote from her); a 1/2 for #1 and a 1/2 bonus for good memory but wrong answer to #5.

David got 2 – and would have got another had he stayed with Mae West.

The answers follow the break:

1. In lay terms (as learned for scuba diving): the volume of gas is inversely proportional to pressure.

2. Alinghi, Brad Butterworth.

3. Mae West.

4. John Perriam.

5. Ann Scanlan.

    Nah, wasn’t being cryptic (generous thought)so will hand that point and the bonus back. When Mae West started coming up I realised pdm had just got lucky as had I when my baby bro lent me J P ‘s record of what is a remarkable life. It would have been so easy for John and Heather to have wallowed in the self pity that so often permeates our modern society and not grabbed the disaster of the drowning of their ancestral home and turned it into the tremendous success that “Bendigo” and all the other spinoffs they achieved and so obviously enjoyed.
