26 Dec, 2015: Day 16

Question 1:
What is the most famous design in Rome by the architect credited with introducing High Renaissance style to the city? Answer: St. Peter's Basilica.

I must emphasize that Google is asking for the most famous design by the architect credited for introducing high Renaissance style to Rome. This is a two-part question. One, who is the architect that brought high Renaissance designed to Rome? Two, what was his masterpiece? Depending on how you phrase the question you could probably answer them both. Typing high renaissance architecture rome" into the search field will get you answer. Hint: look for Donato Bramante, who designed the Tempietto di San Pietro in Montorio.

Question 2:
What notable river was close by the campaign in which Lee defeated the much larger army led by Major General Joseph Hooker? Answer: Potomac.

Look up Robert Lee Joseph Hooker Civil War. On the first page of results you will have pages referring to the Battle of Chancellorsville. Take any web mapping service and find the Chancellorsville battlefield(for the neophytes that it is located in Spotsylvania County, Virginia). Expand out to you see a prominent river.

Question 3:
In "Eats, Shoots and Leaves", what analogy does the author say that grammarians use for the relationship of punctuation to words? Answer: stitching.

Apparently I'm not the only one looking for the answer to this question. The search parameters are not completely mine. Typing Eats Shoots and Leaves analogy basting(basting is a type of tack to be removed at a later time) will get page results that sufficient to answer this question.
