Answer time.


Question 332: Say What You See.



The images:

1) Symbol of the Horde faction from the Warcraft series

2) The letter O

3) Ancient ruins

4) Coins

5) Liam Neeson in his iconic scene from the movie "Taken"

6) the word From

7) German flag

😎 A museum exhibit


Using those clues, you hopefully got the following headline: "Hoard of ancient coins taken from German museum."


On the night of November 22 of this year, a very large amount of gold Celtic coins were stolen from the Celtic and Roman Museum in Manching, around 40 miles north of Munich. They date back to 100 BC, and are the largest stash of Celtic gold ever found. The gold coins weigh 4 kilos / 8.8 pounds, and they are worth millions of euros.


Full point if you had anything close to that, i.e. said "old" instead of "ancient" or "exhibit" instead of "museum." If you don't have "hoard", you must have had a word indicating a large amount. No half points, all or nothing.



Question 333: Ikebana is the Japanese art of what?



Flower arrangement. This style originated around 700 AD, arriving from China to Japan with the coming of Buddhism, when offerings were made at altars and temples.



Question 334: What is the best-selling Christmas single of all time, according to the Guinness Book of World Records?



"White Christmas" by Bing Crosby.



Question 335: What nationality is a person whose ethnicity is a Breton?



French. A Breton comes from Brittany, a region in the northwest of France. Their heritage comes from people who emigrated from the southwest of Great Britain during the 3rd to 9th centuries.



Question 336: Mt. Blanc is the highest peak in what mountain range?



The Alps. The highest mountain in the largest mountain range that lies entirely in Western Europe.



Question 337: What is known as the "Droste Effect" in art?


The effect of an image appearing within itself. Observe the below image, how the can has an image of the can on it which also contains a picture of the can, and so on. It produces an infinite loop if one could beat the limitations of the resolution of the image.






Question 338: Where is Europe’s largest banana farm located?



Iceland. Though the natural climate of Iceland is unsuitable for banana cultivation, a banana farm inside a greenhouse in the village of Reykir produces about 1,000 to 4,500 pounds of bananas per year. It is the single largest banana farm within Europe.



So, seven questions each worth the usual one point. Brings the year-to-date up to 346 possible points.
