• RQFTCIMM11 Game 2, Rounds 7-8: sportswomen and apes

    From Mark Brader@21:1/5 to All on Sat Aug 7 01:53:57 2021
    These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2011-05-16,
    and should be interpreted accordingly. All questions were written
    by members of the Misplaced Modifiers, but have been reformatted
    and may have been retyped and/or edited by me. I will reveal the
    correct answers in about 3 days.

    For further information, including an explanation of the """ notation
    that may appear in these rounds, see my 2021-07-20 companion posting
    on "Reposted Questions from the Canadian Inquisition (RQFTCI*)".


    * Game 2, Round 7 - Canadiana Sports - Canadian Sportswomen

    For the first 6 questions, we give you the name of an athlete;
    you tell us which letter corresponds to her picture on the handout:

    2. Lori Kane.
    3. Amber Holland.
    4. MaŽlle Ricker.
    5. Alexandra Wozniak.

    * Game 2, Round 8 - Science Entertainment - The Great Apes

    Science, entertainment, and stuff featuring our nearest cousins.
    (Well, *your* nearest cousins.)

    1. When male mountain gorillas reach maturity, they develop a
    patch of gray hair, which gives them their nickname. What is

    and what other?

    3. This TV show from 1970 was a take off on "The Man from Uncle"
    and other spy shows. The titular hero was a chimp who played
    in a band called the Evolution Revolution and was an operative
    for APE -- the Agency to Prevent Evil. Name him or the show.

    4. More chimp rock-and-rollers were featured in a series of 1960s
    and 70s commercials for which popular beverage? The ads also
    showed apes in various outfits and scenarios.

    5. These creatures are hominids, like the previously mentioned
    groups, but are known as "lesser apes". Name them.

    6. The Great Ape Project (GAP), founded in 1994, is an international
    organization of primatologists, anthropologists, ethicists,
    and other experts who advocate for what?

    7. In the 1976 remake of "King Kong", who played the paleontology
    professor hero, Jack Prescott?

    8. The 2005 version of "King Kong" featured which actress in the
    Ann Darrow role originally embodied by Fay Wray (that delicate,
    satin-draped frame)?

    9. Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey were both researchers sent to Africa
    to study apes. They were sponsored by a foundation started by,
    and named for, which famous anthropologist and naturalist?

    10. Name the gorilla that Dr. Penny Patterson taught to understand
    2000 words of spoken English as well as 1000 symbols of American
    Sign Language.
