2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 6, Day 5

Post by DadofTwins »

One more day to go.

As soon as R6D6 is ready I'll get that up.

I hope to announce the field for the TOC tomorrow so players can begin to RSVP.

But by now, you know me and timetables. Grain/shaker of salt, and all that.

Here we go.

HITTER MYTH

2: During a stop on the island of Sicily, Odysseus stabs Polyphemus in this body part with a giant spear.

4: This god could throw Mjolnir like an axe and it would return to him like a boomerang.

6: The god this planet is named for was deposed as ruler of heaven when his son used a giant sickle to cut off his genitals and throw them into the sea.

8: Distinctive feature shared by the swords wielded by Uriel at the gates of paradise, and by Surtr at Ragnarok.

10: Popular in 3rd century Europe, a gold amulet 1-2 inches long and shaped like a mace was known as the “Club of” this legendary strongman.

SHARED DEATH DATES

3: James Monroe died on this date in 1831, five years to the day after the death of two other Presidents.

6: The deaths of these two authors – one wrote Brave New World, the other wrote The Screwtape Letters – occurred the same day as the assassination of JFK.

9: On January 30, 1948, Orville Wright died in Dayton, Ohio, and Nathuram Godse assassinated this Indian political activist.

12: When Sergei Prokofiev died on March 5, 1953, crowds mourning this other Moscow resident who died the same day delayed Prokofiev's funeral for three days.

15: Baseball Hall of Famer Eddie Matthews died February 18, 2001, the same day this NASCAR driver was killed on the final lap of the Daytona 500.
