Un, Dos, Tres, Quartoze????

Why did Bono jump to 14 after 3? Is that why he became Time Man of the year along with Bill Gates and Melinda Gates (Man of the Year?)? Anyway the 4th quiz took some time to come along.
The questions follow, the answers tomorrow. Oh the time limit for today's quiz is 4 hours from now so that makes it 18:00 hrs (IST ). Crack it and 100 bucks is yours.

1] As usual we start off with a sitter. Who owns the copyright for the Google search technology? (Use google to find this one and die of shame)

2] "Death to the French is Italy's cry" this translated to some language gives us a word used very often to describe a collective of a particular band of people. What?

3] The Great Dictator was the dictator of which country?

4] During W.W. II, the head of Hitler's Luftwaffe, Hermann Goring, offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who could kill or capture a famous American airman. Who was this airman?

5] An alternate nam for these islands is the "Island of Dogs".How do we know these Islands better? Can you explain the funda?

6] There is a name given to the wood stump that you see in the picture. What? (think fossils)

7] An ancient Roman architect wrote this about the human body "A palm is the width of four fingers, a foot is the width of four palms, a cubit is the width of six palms..." and so on describing the proportions of the body. How was this and a further description of the body immortalised? (I want the exact answer for this one, details if possible)

8] I know its evil to do this but this is the only known photograph of this famous person. Name him

9] This Scandinavian king has lent his name to something that is used very freely today. Name the King and the 'tool' that I am talking about here?

10] How were hurricanes in the Carribean named in the early 20th century that is before people likened their tempestuous behaviour to that of the fairer sex?

Bonus one for the day

Who has said the following? (the type of 'sentence' is a giveaway)

I will not dissect things unless instructed
I will not strut around like I own the place
My name is not Dr. Death
Five days is not too long to wait for a gun
