Here’s a review of the questions:

  1. The Flying Pig Marathon has grown substantially since its start in 1999. What was unique about the race in 2011?
  2. What was Cincy-born Fred Baur famous for?
  3. Albert C. Carter was the son of a Cincinnati clairvoyant. What did he invent?

And here are the answers:

  1. With a record registration of more than 30,000 runners, the 13th running of the Flying Pig Marathon the winner of the Women’s division, Mary McDonaugh, was legally blind.
  2. Fred Baur was an organic chemist who was most notable for designing and patenting the Pringles can which gave Procter & Gamble a way to uniformly stack chips. Per his request, at his death his children buried his ashes in a Pringles can.
  3. Carter invented the Magic Eight Ball, which was inspired by a spirit writing device his mom used in her practice. Was the invention a success? It is decidedly so.
