Identify this VERY happy couple

P.S. The Eiffel tower has NOTHING to do with the photograph. Could well be Shruti Hasan's face. Done to dissuade Google image searches.
Next question will be the clue, if no one cracks this one.

This is not a clue.

But there is a clue in the "posted by" part.

Connect (Not an exhaustive list). Fairly simple.

Here is a question I came across by pure coincidence. Connect the three visuals. The textbook is a really famous publication on Bayesian Networks.

Identify the logo. In the news.

Question: 195

A rare, text-only question. Had mailed this one to some of you. Anyways, here it is again.

The Latin or Spanish name for a region in French is the name of a famous Portuguese. Elaborate. :-)

I actually laughed out at this one. Just fill in the blank or put funda.

Although we definitely DON'T get to see her, I'm sure each of us cringe whenever we hear her. Don't need an ID, but do tell what her role in recent times has been.

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.

Name the thingy

What is this thing ? Why has it been in the news recently ?

Tuesday, August 9, 2011


Just identify the two organisations/groups/clubs/companies/(insert similar term here). Oh, and if it's of any help, the logo on the left used to be mud-brown in colour before changing to the present blue that you see.

Ans: Puddlemere United and Chudley Cannons - Quidditch teams.

One's missing - And for a good reason.

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+.

They dont need no education

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

My first attempt

This picture is more famous for being on a Coldplay album :P
But what does it actually represent ?

Answered by Joshan,Aditya,ET and Anonymous.Refer comments for answer

I couldn't resist

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?)

Guess the movie

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.

No additional clue will be given

Aditya.S cracks it.

Ans: The first blank is 'Google+', while the other two are 'Facebook'.

Who's Missing?

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).
