Q. I bought nothing but Travelling Fair in turn 3. Why?
(Maybe someone saw me playing like that.)

You wanted to topdeck a Madman.
Right. Too easy?

Next one: IHL killed your opponent. What does IHL mean?
Answer: Inheritance, Hunting Grounds, Lurker

You wanted to topdeck a Madman.

That doesn't sound like a good move on turn 3. Unless a bunch of other weird stuff happened, your deck is your 10 starting cards, Madman, whatever you gained with Hermit, and whatever you opened with other than Hermit.  I wouldn't want to play (or probably get) a Madman at that point.

I think he means to seaway earlier and then buy Villa in that turn in question and play it.

The distinction is dingan never said he played a card. Villa's extra buy triggers on the playing of it and not buying.

Game ends. I have nothing but some coppers and shelters in my deck. No single VP chip either. But I still have 4 points. How?

Wall + Fountain: You have 23 Coppers and 3 Shelters. Fountain gives +15 VP, Wall gives -11, leading to 4.

Or, Museum, and you trashed two of the Shelters.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

good! I haven't thought of Museum, but the other one is the one.

There is another solution, quite a nice one. No Museum, no Wall, no Fountain

In a 3 or more player game with other people buying Masquerade, you could get 3 Necropolises and so 4 points from Orchard.

If the Coppers are empty but you only have 4 of them, then Tower would end you up with 4 points. Or, slightly more plausibly, Wolf Den is there as well and you have 13 Coppers plus your starting Shelters.

This was what crossed my mind! So elegant

Tower solution is neat!

I revealed a basic card (basic, not Base Set) to Courtier, and got all 4 bonuses.  How?

I bought a Kingdom Treasure (so not a basic card), and moved 1 to Aqueduct.  How did this happen?

Crown, with Defiled Shrine also in play.

Rocks.

Masterpiece, overpaying 1.

Edit: any 3- or 6-cost Kingdom Treasure, so Loan, Masterpiece, Small Castle, Harem, or Hoard, having played a Charm (second option) earlier.

I suspected that was the one you were thinking of!

(Also work: Fortune with a Gladiator in play; Harem or Small Castle with a Hoard in play).

I gain a Villa during my turn. Directly after that, it is not my action phase. Why?
