1. In 2003, adventurer Aron Ralston had a harrowing accident in a canyon in Utah. He spent about five days extricating himself from it, which also led to the self-amputation of his injured arm. This was made into a movie by an Oscar-winning director in 2010. Which movie?

2. Which city was the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany from 1949 until the early 90s?

3. In 1999, a group of young men in Adelaide coined the term, and their charity activities soon became popular in Australia. Since the mid-2000s, this phenomenon has spread to most parts of Europe and North America. What annual occurrence is this? Think about the month we are in, and you will get it.

4. This word’s entry into the Oxford English dictionary predates its usage in computing. It was first used in aircraft engine testing in the 1940s when they discovered a moth had stuck in the system, thereby slowing the testing operation. What word?
