    • EXPLAIN.MOZILLA FIREFOX PRESENTS CAKETO IETEAM - LAUNCH OF IE10 (Must’ve been sarcastic:P)
    • If not for X, our understanding of electricity would likely be years behind what we now enjoy. X also filed for more than 300 patents for inventions like electromagnets, the radio, and the AC motor. He just kind of became a little off-the-wall as he aged. X was known to begin work each day at 3:00AM and continue until 11:00 PM.These habits caused him to suffer a mental breakdown at age 25. He then pulled himself together and continued the same regimen well into old age, working as many as 38 years without a break in his rigorous work schedule. The man was celibate, but got along well with pigeons. He had a few deep-seated revulsions: He couldn’t stand overweight women or jewelry of any kind (especially pearls).
    • NIKOLATESLA
    • The 2002 film 'Frida',depicts the life and career of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Alfred Molina played the role of husband and artist Diego Rivera,but which Mexican actress played the title role, resulting in her only Academy Award nomination to date?
    • SALMA HAYEK
    • In Z, X plays a CIA officer hunting down terrorists, but in early 2001, the roles were reversed . . . in real life.While filming a movie, X was visited by a group of FBI agents who delivered some disturbing news. Evidently, some terror group namedY wanted to kidnap the famous actor.Their plot was to shake up the world by capturing famous American actors (somebody wasn’t doing their homework; Crowe was born in New Zealand and raised in Australia). However, X didn’t take the threat very seriously.After all, most people hadn’t really heard ofY at the time. But the Bureau took no chances. As X played the part of John Nash, federal agents were on the set at all times. In fact, they followed him around for four years, escorting him to the Oscars and the Golden Globes.They even kept him safe while he shot Master and Commander. Fortunately for movie lovers everywhere, the plot never materialized, and X went on to star in, well, nothing too exciting. Of course, if terrorists really had tried to capture X, chances are pretty good their plot would’ve failed. After all, if there’s one thing X loves, it’s fighting. ID X,Y,Z. 10 points forY

    • EXPLAIN/GUESS IT. In this modern age of domestic terrorism and paranoia, sometimes all it takes is a single word to send everyone into a panic. In the case of a 6 year old boy from Massachusetts, that word was “gun.” During a morning trip to Old Mill Pond Elementary, the kindergartner pulled out a quarter-sized LEGO minifigure rifle in front of the other students.The other children began to panic, rousing the concern of the bus driver, who immediately slammed on the brakes. Although the boy obviously did not face any legal repercussions, he was given detention and ordered to write an official apology to the driver and all the children on the bus.The mother of the boy declared the school “overreacted” and that the toy did not pose a threat of any kind.The bus driver, however, stated that several of the children were still in shock and the ordeal was quite disruptive.

Despite the fact that the X studio has taken steps to alter the character’s appearance with a slight redesign, there are supposedly still traces ofY written all over Ellie, and not to say anything of the name sounding awfully similar. “"I guess I should be flattered that they ripped off my likeness, but I am actually acting in an other video game called BeyondTwo Souls, so it was not appreciated.“ –Y BeyondTwo Souls featuresY co-starring alongside other Hollywood personalityWillem Dafoe in a psychological/ spiritual thriller that centers around the topic of what comes after death.

    • Comic book heroes and villains die and come back to life often, but only one death was dictated entirely by the fans. Robin has died and been replaced several times throughout the series, but in 1988, Jason “X”Todd’s fate was left in the hands of his supposed fans. The “Death in the Family” storyline featured X finding his birth mother in Ethopia only to discover that she had turned him over toY. Both ended up being tied up in a warehouse set to explode unless Z could save them.The cliffhanger inspired DC Comics to set up a toll-free hotline and ask the readers to call in and vote on whether or not X would make it out of the warehouse alive. The fans voted 5,343 to 5,271 to put X down, and so he died in the next issue. However,Todd returned in 2005′s ‘Under the Hood’ story arc as X in order to seek bloody revenge againstY.

    • X is an Anglicization of his real name, given to him in Genoa where he was born: Cristoforo. Other languages have changed his name, too: he is Cristóbal in Spanish, for example. Even his Genoese name is not certain, as historical documents about his origin are scarce. He almost never got to make his “journey”. He tried to get support from many sources, including the King of Portugal, but most European rulers thought he was a crackpot and didn’t pay much attention to him. He hung around the Spanish court for years, hoping to convince Ferdinand and Isabella to finance his journey. In fact, X had just given up and was headed to France when he got the news that his travel had finally been approved. CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS
