Patent Questions on Jeopardy

The February 17, 2011 episode of Jeopardy featured a a category of questions (er, I mean "answers") based on patents.  Here is the list of answers.  The questions are at the bottom.

  $400 A: 1860: Christopher Spencer's breech-loading repeating this. 

  $800 A: 1846: Drs. Morton & Jackson for this, used in surgery...zzzz.

  $1200 A: 1866: Haven & Hettrich's whirligig, better known now as this stringed toy.

  $1600 A: 1878: Joseph Winters for a wagon-mounted fire escape one of these?

  $2000 A: 1975: Donald Bateman's ground proximity warning system designed for use in these?

If you have an invention that you want to protect by filing a patent application, contact Loren Donald Pearson for a patent consultation.  Remember, if you do not file a patent application, your invention might be in jeopardy.  Enough of the puns, here are the "questions".

  Q1: What is a rifle?

  Q2: What is anesthesia?

  Q3: What is a yo-yo?

  Q4: What is a ladder?
