Yep, it’s a new contest. This contest will reward those of you who, like me, have
wasted spent invested countless thousands of hours exploring the hidden treasures of European culture, broadly defined.
This contest is not designed to increase traffic to my site. It’s designed to reduce it.
Here are the rules. I ask one or two questions. The questions relate to one particular work of art (remember — broadly defined). The first person to answer these questions correctly, either in a comment or in an email to me, wins the contest. Your answer has to identify the work of art that provides the answer to the question.
Don’t go thinkin’ you can just Google up an answer. The questions are all going to be Google-proof, I guarantee you (at least the English and German versions of Google…)
What does the winner win? They win a few DVDs, lovingly created by me, filled with huge amounts of beautiful music. You win, you give me your address, and you’ll get the DVDs. Promise. I’ll ship them anywhere in the world. Restriction: Nobody who knows me gets to play!
Simple, eh? So here are the first two questions:
1. What do you have to trade to get the Pink Austrian Mercury?
2. What other colors from that set did the old man have when he died?
Yes, these questions have answers. In fact, you can answer both of them in 5 words.
No, I won’t give any clues. Good Luck!
