  15. 15. Q5. X? Why was it’s height increased? What is the 1937 incident? In late 1929, Alfred E. Smith, the leader of a group of investors erecting X, announced that they were increasing the height of the building to 1,250 feet from 1,050. Although it was initially suspected that this was done to make X the tallest building in the world at the time. The additional 200 ft mast was said to have an a rather ambitious purpose, catering to a certain industry. However, commercial viability of this was still minuscule. Even the Germans, who dominated that field had not asked for it. Dr Hugo Eckener flatly said that it was not practical, as many crewmen were required for it. The project was up in the air until 1937, when an infamous industry that got extensive media coverage caused the industry in question to effectively die out.

The palace and the surrounding festivities were part of the celebration of Russia's victory over the Ottoman Empire. She ordered the architect Pyotr Yeropkin to design the building. It was built under the supervision of Georg Krafft who left a detailed description of the palace. The palace was 20 meters tall and 50 meters wide. Empress Anna died the following year and the castle did not survive the next summer. The Russian reading public was made aware of Anna's mock palace in 1835, when Ivan Lazhechnikov (1792–1869) described her escapade in one of the first historical novels in the language.

  21. 21. Q7. The X website was created by Andrey Ternovskiy, a 17-year-old high-school student in Moscow, Russia. Ternovskiy says the concept arose from video chats he used to have with friends on Skype, and that he wrote the first version of X in "two days and two nights". Ternovskiy chose the name "X" after watching The Deer Hunter, a 1978 film set in the Vietnam War in which prisoners of war were tortured by being forced to play Y. Ternovskiy built the site on an old computer he had in his bedroom. The site initially had 20 users, and then it doubled daily for a period, according to Ternovskiy in 2010. He discusses that he did not advertise or post his site anywhere; in fact, people starting talking about the website and knowledge of it gradually spread by word of mouth.

  24. 24. Q8. X? (Image on next slide) No discussion of X is complete without a mention of that other X. So, who’s the real X?

The longstanding rumor is that wrestler X lets musician X use the name for a very reasonable fee of one dollar per year.

  34. 34. Q1: ID X England’s Sunday Times, responding to an anonymous tip that X was the book’s real author, hired Duquesne University’s Patrick Juola to analyze the text of __, using software that he had spent over a decade refining. One of Juola’s tests examined sequences of adjacent words, while another zoomed in on sequences of characters; a third test tallied the most common words, while a fourth examined the author’s preference for long or short words. Juola wound up with a linguistic fingerprint—hard data on the author’s stylistic quirks. He then ran the same tests on one of X's books plus three stylistically similar crime novels by other writers. Juola concluded that X was the most likely author of __, since X was the only one whose writing style showed up as the closest or second-closest match in each of the tests. After consulting an Oxford linguist and receiving a concurring opinion, the newspaper confronted X, who confessed.
