    1) I'm guessing that it may have been some large clock in a train station, maybe in Paris.

    2) Right after they figured out how to keep the horses from drowning in those Olympic-sized pools.
    "I'll tell you something," he said, as if he had said nothing that day. "You're walking on gallows ground, and there's a rope around your neck and a raven-bird on each shoulder waiting for your eyes, and the gallows tree has deep roots, for it stretches from heaven to hell, and our world is only the branch from which the rope is swinging."

    1) Dali claimed they were inspired by a Camembert cheese he saw melting in the sun.
    2) 1900. Water polo was first featured at the Olympics during the 1900 Paris games, which were held as part of the World’s Fair.
