1. Quite Easy ! What is X…? X is an establishment that illegally sells alcoholic beverages. Such establishments came into prominence in the United States during the period known as Prohibition (1920–1933 ). The term X might have originated in Pennsylvania in 1888; Kate Hester ran a saloon for years in Pittsburgh, without proper license. She wanted to keep from drawing attention to her illegal business. When her customers got too rowdy, she would hush them by whispering “X, boys! X!”. An alternative theory is that the term was simply derived from a patron's manner of ordering alcohol without raising suspicion — bartenders would tell patrons to be quiet and “X”
2. Identify the company… The company X was founded in 1969 as a jukebox rental and repair business in Osaka by KagemasaKōzuki, still chairman and president. The name X is a conjunction of the names KagemasaKouzuki , Yoshinobu Nakama, TatusoMiyasako. X can also mean small wave in the Japanese language. X is represented by goroawase number 573. "Five" in Japanese is go; "7" in Japanese is nana; "3" in Japanese is mittsu.
3. Identify the game… The game is the creation of Mason Gordon, who wanted to create a combination of sports that approximated a real-life video game. Upon developing the concept, he approached Mike Tollin, producer of Smallville, Wild Hogs, and Coach Carter . After giving it some thought, he agreed to help Gordon. Many different ideas and concepts encompassing everything from court construction to team strategies were addressed. 6 months after their first meeting, a court was constructed in a warehouse in East Los Angeles, California.
4. Identify this couple and LAND On April Fool's Day 1973, X and Y introduced the conceptual country of LAND at a press conference in NY. They were ambassadors of the country and sought diplomatic immunity to end X's immigration troubles. X talked about the LAND, which would live up to the ideals of his song "Imagine", saying this in the "official" declaration: We announce the birth of a conceptual country, LAND. Citizenship of the country can be obtained by declaration of your awareness of LAND. LAND has no land, no boundaries, no passports, only people. LAND has no laws other than cosmic. All people of LAND are ambassadors of the country. As two ambassadors of LAND, we ask for diplomatic immunity and recognition in the United Nations of our country and its people. The seal of LAND is a seal (the animal). A plaque engraved with the words “LAND EMBASSY" was duly installed at their home.

5. Identify the song, singer & band He came up with the song's title when his friend Kathleen Hanna, at the time the lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill, spray painted TITLEon his wall.

What Hanna actually meant, however, was that He smelled like a deodorant , which his then girlfriend Tobi Vail wore. He later claimed that he was unaware that it was a brand of deodorant until months after the single was released. In the 2006 VH1 UK poll The Nation's Favourite Lyric, the line "I feel stupid and contagious/here we are now, entertain us" was ranked as the third favourite song lyric.

11.What's the world…? The terms Mismand the earlier variant M come from Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 1775 play The Rivals, and in particular the character Mrs.M. Sheridan presumably named his character Mrs.M, who frequently misspoke (to great comic effect) Eg. "...promise to forget this fellow - to illiterate him, I say, quite from your memory." (i.e. obliterate) "...she's as headstrong as an allegory on the banks of Nile." (i.e. alligator;)

THE NAME'S BLAND.. JAMES BLAND James Bond's creator, Ian Fleming said, "He's not what I envisioned of James Bond looks" and "I’m looking for Commander Bond and not an overgrown stunt-man," adding that ACTOR (muscular, 6' 2", and a Scot) was unrefined. However, Fleming's girlfriend told him ACTOR had the requisite sexual charisma. Fleming changed his mind after the successful debut of ACTOR; he was so impressed, he created a half-Scottish, half-Swiss heritage for the literary James Bond in the later novels.

The annual feature the X is billed as a benchmark of male attractiveness. It is determined in a similar procedure to Time's Person of the Year.

The Sexiest Man Alive
Identify X and Y Clue 1: A little boy, X wrote a letter to Robert Ripley, with a drawing of his dog. He explained the amazing facts that the pointer ate shards of glass and other sharp objects, with no apparent harm to him. Ripley published the drawing and the story in his book. This was the first appearance of X’s work before it was published worldwide. X became world famous for his comic strip where Y, based on the dog, was a main character.
Clue 2: One of Y's most famous alter-egos is the World War I Flying Ace , often seen battling his arch-enemy, Manfred von Richthofen (the Red Baron). For this, he would climb to the top of his house, don goggles and a scarf (trailing behind in the "wind"), and thus fly his Sopwith Camel and travel all the way back to July 27, 1914, the day World War I began. The Red Baron, like other adult figures, was never drawn in a strip; his presence was indicated through the bullet holes that would riddle the house in a dogfight, and Y's angry outbursts in German. Y also became "Joe Cool", as he put on sunglasses and leaned against the wall doing nothing. Y has also been a famous writer , a bow-tie wearing attorney(who once defended Peter Rabbit), a hockey player, an Olympic figure skaterand even the first astronaut to land on the moon.
