Transcript

  • 1. B Y TA M A L D U T TA ENQUIRY SESSION
  • 2. INFINITE POUNCE. • 20 Questions. • +10 on bounce. • +10/-10 on pounce. • First 10 clockwise. Last 10 anti-clockwise.
  • 3. 1. Connect the two characters.
  • 4. THEY NEVER LIGHT THE CIGARETTE THEY CARRY.
  • 5. 2. • According to a detailed analysis on Slate.com, Kyle Beckerman did it like a guy caught posing for his mug shot, Ioannis Maniatis did it like a hip-hop dancer, Javad Nekounam like a disapproving dad, Jefferson Montero like an automaton. John Boye turned too much, while DaMarcus Beasley did not turn at all. • The website concluded that Benoît Assou-Ekotto did it the best. He was graceful, funny, relaxed and made it look like a “joyous invitation to come to his place and watch some Adventure Time.” What is being talked about?
  • 6. FIFA WORLD CUP ARM FOLDING.
  • 7. 3. • Sheriff William Federspiel, from Saginaw County Jail in the US state of Michigan, recently told US media their classic prison jumpsuit was now seen as a fashion item. And he did not want anyone confused about who belongs behind bars and who is merely making a fashion statement. • Federspiel said people thought it was “cool to look like an inmate of the Saginaw County Jail. Wearing these bright jumpsuits out at the mall or in public.” • This prompted a decision to replace them with a black and white striped jumpsuit similar to styles of prison uniform from the early 20th century. What did Federspiel blame for the sudden rise in popularity of these “bright jumpsuits”?
  • 8. ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. THE ORANGE JUMPSUITS SHOWN IN THE NETFLIX SHOW.
  • 9. 4. • Pedro Bravo, 20, stands accused of kidnapping and strangling his friend Christian Aguilar, 18, in September 2012 when they shared a room at the University of Florida. • The murder trial at the Alachua County Criminal Justice Centre, Florida, last week, heard how the men had argued over Aguilar dating Bravo's ex-girlfriend, Erika Friman. • What appears to be a pretty common murder case has gained great media scrutiny because of something that Bravo did at the time of Aguilar’s death, which has made him the lead suspect in the case and has also highlighted how technology can unwittingly be an accomplice to a murder. What did Pedro Bravo do?
  • 10. HE ASKED SIRI WHERE TO HIDE THE BODY. (AND SIRI PROVIDED A LIST OF POSSIBLE PLACES.)
  • 11. 5. • X was an American baseball player who played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees. A seven-time All-Star and six-time World Series champion, X was twice named the Most Valuable Player. • When the Yankees began their 1939 spring training, it was clear that X was physically unwell. His running was affected, and at one point he collapsed at the field. By the end of spring training, he had not hit a home run. He was considered an excellent base runner, but as the 1939 season got under way, his coordination and speed had deteriorated significantly. • As his condition worsened, he arrived at the Mayo Clinic. After extensive testing, the diagnosis of Y was confirmed. The prognosis was grim: rapidly increasing paralysis, difficulty in swallowing and speaking, and a life expectancy of less than three years, although there would be no impairment of mental functions. The cause was unknown but it was painless, non-contagious and cruel — the motor function of the central nervous system is destroyed but the mind remains fully aware to the end. • After his death in 1941, the disease Y became popularly known as X’s disease. ID X and Y.
  • 12. X - LOU GEHRIG. Y - AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (ALS).

Ably assisted by inspector Athelney Jones, Frederick Chase must forge a path through the darkest corners of the capital to shine light on this shadowy figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, a man determined to engulf the city in a tide of murder and menace.” ID X and Y.
  • 14. X – MORIARTY. Y – REICHENBACH FALLS.
  • 15. 7. Put funda.
  • 16. PEOPLE UPLOADING BRAZIL VS. GERMANY MATCH ON PORN SITES.
  • 17. 8. • The movie X, digitally restored, was released for the first time on 17th January, 2014, in theatres, 26 years after its video release. • Wikipedia states the genre of the movie as “Experimental”. The movie “employs a nonlinear narrative and an absurdist storyline to satire, mythology, arts, politics and philosophy.” • The movie has been greatly praised by critics for its unconventional approach and has even been described as a “LSD trip”.

  • 21. 10. • The village of Shibniwas in Nadia, motivated by the efforts of a young man named Anjan Sukul, has been celebrating a certain occasion on 18th August every year since 1998. • The village hosts cultural and social activities like tribal dance, drawing competition, senior citizen walk and a boat race on the Churni river. What does the village celebrate?
  • 22. INDEPENDENCE DAY. (SHIBNIWAS WAS ADDED TO PAKISTAN FIRST, BUT WAS SHIFTED BACK TO INDIA ON 18TH AUGUST, 1947.)
  • 23. 11. • In late May, 2014, Thailand's military said that they were monitoring a new form of silent resistance to the coup. • Col. Sukhondhapatipak told the press : “If it is an obvious form of resistance, then we have to control it so it doesn't cause any disorder in the country. We know it comes from the movies and let's say it represents resistance against the authorities.” • “If a single individual does this, we are not going to arrest him or her.", he said. “But if it is a political gathering of five people or more, then we will have to take some action. If it persists, then we will have to make an arrest.“ What “silent resistance” is being talked about that stands for “Thank you, Admiration and Goodbye”?
  • 24. THE HUNGER GAMES SALUTE.
  • 25. 12. • Conversation from The Guardians of the Galaxy after Peter Quill brings the other Guardians to his ship : Gamora : And Quill... Your ship is filthy. Peter Quill [to Rocket] : She has no idea. If I had a blacklight, this place would look like a X painting. ID X.
