Kuffir, commenting on my Words that matter post, reminds me that I didn't acknowledge his answers, or even provide the answers, for a previous question here.
So let me make amends. The question was from my post Quiz time of a month ago. Here it is again:
- Who is John Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum? What is his connection to Alfred Hitchcock? What is his connection to David Duke?
- Gutzon Borglum was the famed sculptor behind the Mt.Rushmore Wall of President faces. He was a prominent member of Ku Klux Klan. David Duke was a leader of the Klansman.
I guess Hitchcock is related to Borglum via the climax scene of North to Northwest (Cary Grant movie).
In Man, bowls, arch, I had three photographs of Bombay up and I asked, where were these taken? And which one was taken by a six-year-old?
Answers: the shot of a man in a window was taken in Matharpacady. The bowls are from Zaveri Bazar, the jewellery heartland of Bombay: small earthen bowls like diyas, used for heating gold. The arch is the entrance to the spectacular Irani Masjid in Dongri.
I like how the first commenter there answered the second question: using heights and distances from high school -- the young-'un shot the old-'un. QED.
Fine job! And correct, too.
