It's Texas Instruments (TI) - Those are the pics of the 4 founders (Cecil Green, Erik Jonsson, Eugene McDermott and Patrick Haggerty), GSI or Geophysical Service Inc was the parent company of TI before the name change. GI stands for General Instrument, another company which existed at that time. As a result, they had to name the company as General Instruments before the name changed to Texas Instruments.

Identify this 'place' - 4 images from different angles.
It's the Pacific Island nation of Nauru. With the total area around 21 sq. km, it is one of the smallest nations in the world. More interestingly, it doesn't have an officialy capital.

Just give me the connection between these nations. The title of the post may (not) help.
PS: Sorry for the bad alignment of the flags and their quality. But I guess they are all identifiable.
Ans: Countries with the 'prestigious' AAA credit/debt rating awarded by S&P 500. And the missing one is obviously, the United States of America which was downgraded recently to AA+.

Connect to a controversy
Lebron James Cover on Vogue where he holds Giselle Bundchen was compared to the war poster and a poster of King Kong holding the beauty and was considered racist.

In December last year, a bunch of British students went on a rampage over excessive tuition fee. A famous scene from those protests is the pic on the bottom right, when Charles and Camilla were attacked. The other three photos are of the same person, who was handed a 16 month sentence for taking part in the protests. Why is this particular person (of the 100s who took part in the protest) the centre of media focus?
Check the comments section for the answers. Ameya, Achint and Arjun Variar (buzz) get it right.

This is the first page of a webcomic that has been absolutely brilliant in parodying everything a gamer/nerd/movie buff holds dear. Its to be movie adaptation is titled... " XXXXXXXXXXXXX : The Origin of DICK".
I want the XXXXXXXXXXXXX( the X's are not indicative of the no of letters or words )
Just FYI and cos I like the sound of it , the shady guy in black is called Richard : Chief Warlock of the Brothers of Darkness, Lord of the Thirteen Hells, Master of the Bones, Emperor of the Black, Lord of the Undead, Lord of the Dance (nominated by himself on a whim), Mistress of Magma (gained by killing the former holder of the title), King of the world (also nominated by himself on a whim) and mayor of a little village up the coast
Aaah...well only 1 response and he gets it right... The answer is Looking For Group
For the unacquainted http://www.lfgcomic.com/

I couldn't resist putting this question in. Its not a question I'm proud of. The person on the left is specific, and you probably wouldn't have seen him wearing that outfit very often. The person on the right is generic. Connect the two.
Ans : I apologize if you find this question terrible. The person on the left is Jermaine Jackson (Michael Jackson's brother, and the runner up when Shilpa Shetty won Big Brother). The connect I was alluding to is the worst name a celebrity could give to a child. Frank Zappa named his children Dweezil, Moon Unit, while Bob Geldof named his daughters Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof and Little Pixie Geldof. Jermaine Jackson named his son Jermajesty. (Get it?)

So I aint a huge movie buff. But when I saw this particular film, there was this one (slightly ridiculous and improbable) scene that I clearly remember. A few years later, I came across this poster, which poked fun at this particular scene. Which movie?
Ans : The answer is Die Hard, and this scene is so ridiculous, you have to see it for yourself. John Mcclane walks on glass barefoot. Awesome movie otherwise, though. Aditya and Kalyan Krishna (Buzz) get it right.

So, the question mark represents the most famous of the bunch. Who's missing?
Ans : Well, all of the above represent Jeff Dunham's characters. The one important missing character is Achmed the dead terrorist. Sivasankar Menon and Thejas Balaraman get it right. (Both on buzz).
