Today’s question comes from Deviprasad Viswanathan, who wants you to buy shares of Wanbury Limited right now.
What’s the story?
Visual 1 shows Philadelphia City Hall atop which stands a statue of William Penn. Under a gentlemen’s agreement, no building in the city was to rise above this statue. This ended in March 1987, when a skyscraper called ‘One Liberty Place’ (Visual 2) opened three blocks away. This is alleged to have brought upon the city ‘The Curse of William Penn’, sometimes used to explain the failure of professional sports teams based in Philadelphia. Visual 3 shows the number of years that have elapsed since each of the cities’ teams won the league championship in their respective sport.
Cracked by 21 people! 1 point to all of you, including that young impudent rascal Thomas Masun, who gets a -92 as well because he dissed Wanbury Limited in his answer. (Long live Wanbury!)
