  38. 38. Pastafarianism I was inclined initially to give points for Flying Spaghetti Monster… but hey! For 1500 bucks, you better know this!
  39. 39. 3. While bouncers are common now, in 1893,it would have been unthinkable for a bowler to use those tactics as it was used in this historic match. The Umpire would have surely objected. Also, matches with only one inning a side are a relatively recent occurrence. In the late 1890s even friendly matches lasting only 1-2 days had 2 innings each, so it is very unlikely that this match would last only 1 inning. Also, even if the match lasted 1 inning, as long as the chasing team didn’t lose all their wickets and they had not scored as much as the opposition, they would not lose the match but simply draw it. Which match are we talking about?

  41. 41. The Reserve Bank of India

The first X in recognizable format was Samuel Johnson’s, which was published in 1755. It remained the standard text for 150 years until the ________ embarked on its project in 1879. The first ______________ came out in sections from 1884, completed in 1928. Despite its worldwide reputation, the X has never made a profit. The continuing research costs several million pounds a year. The X’s owner, __________ said the impact of the internet means that X will probably appear only in electronic form. X = ?
