    Oh good grief – these are ridiculous. (Although I do have to mention that 9 is the cow with the crumpled horn.)

    And thus 5 is the Battle of Little Bighorn.

    In which case I’m guessing #6 refers to the Matterhorn, but I don’t know who first climbed it.

    @4 re #6: Whymper? Dunno about any “effect”.

    And 2 (when it comes to mushrooms) is a horn of plenty

    w/o googling are any of them cape horn? that must have been rounded a first time in the annals of great exploration?

    the “long drop” is a term of art in the trade of hanging (those executed don’t slowly strangle but have their necks swiftly broken): i don’t know who developed it tho (i.e. haven’t googled yet)

    #10 looks like some kind of species question. I’m guessing hornbills – I’m sure there are grey hornbills at least, haven’t heard of the others.
