X, shocked on watching a quiz on Doordarshan  in 1967 in which participants could easily answer questions pertaining to Greek and Roman mythology but were unable to reply to the question “In the Ramayana, who was Rama's mother?”, started Y in an attempt to teach Indian children about their cultural heritage. </li></ul><ul><li>X und Y? </li></ul>
    24. 28. Anant Pai, Amar Chitra Katha
    25. 29. 2 <ul><li>X's idea to offer excursions came to him while waiting for the stagecoach at Kibworth, England. He arranged to take a group of 570 campaigners from Leicester to a rally 11 miles away. In 1841, X arranged for the rail company to charge one shilling per person that included rail tickets and food for this train journey. X was paid a share of the fares actually charged to the passengers. Later the company agreed to make a permanent arrangement with him provided he found the passengers. This success led him to start his own business running rail excursions for pleasure. In 1850, he planned his first excursion abroad, when he took a group from France. X? </li></ul>

    28. 34. <ul><li>Conspiracy theory explaining the WTC collapse. The Federal Emergency Management Agency developed an early explanation of the collapses, which had come to be known as the &quot;pancake&quot; theory. According to this explanation, when the connections between the floor trusses and the columns broke, the floors fell down one on top of the other, quickly exceeding the load that any one floor was designed to carry. </li></ul>

    42. 58. 10 <ul><li>The X is a fictional drug-assisted aversion therapy. It involves the patient being forced to watch violent images for long periods of time, while under the effect of drugs that cause a near death experience, such that the patient will assimilate the sensations caused and then become incapacitated or very ill either attempting to perform or even just witnessing any act of violence. The Xact name, please. </li></ul>
    43. 60. Ludovico Technique
    44. 61. 11 <ul><li>X was orphaned during the Soviet Union's bombing of Afghanistan. X’s village was attacked by Soviet helicopter gunships sometime in the early 1980s. The Soviet strike forced X’s remaining family to hike over the mountains to the Nasir Bagh refugee camp in Pakistan in 1984, where X was immortalized. </li></ul><ul><li>X? </li></ul>

    47. 67. Jake LaMotta
    48. 68. 13 <ul><li>Y was composed by Sammy Lerner in 1933, and has become forever associated with X. As one historian has observed, the song itself was inspired by the first two lines of the song Pirate King in Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta, ‘The Pirates of Penzance’: “.... a Pirate King! (Hoorah for the Pirate King!)”. The tune behind those two lines is almost identical to Y. Y has also been referenced in numerous other places. X and Y? </li></ul>

    54. 78. 16 <ul><li>X and Y are similar to Asterix and Obelix. X, like Asterix, does not have any extraordinary physical power and uses his wit to get around situations. Y though, like Obelix, does demonstrate that his tremendous muscle power is without the brains to apply it properly. The image of Rex Ingram from the movie  The Thief of Baghdad  is strongly reminiscent of Y’s character. X and Y? </li></ul>
    55. 80. Chacha Chaudhary and Sabu
    56. 81. 17 <ul><li>A connect, for good measure. </li></ul><ul><li>Pictures on next slide </li></ul>
    57. 84. <ul><li>Michael Jackson and Paul Anka. </li></ul><ul><li>Anka co-wrote lyrics for This Is It , under the original title I Never Heard for Anka’s album “Walk a Fine Line”. It didn’t make the final release. Anka claims Jackson &quot;stole the tapes&quot; from the studio. However, only Jackson is credited writing the song in the booklet of the “This Is It” album. </li></ul>
    58. 85. 18 <ul><li>“ There is a moment of regret, followed by vast sadness. Then comes a tidal wave of euphoria that sweeps away every negative thought in my head. I’ve never felt so alive, so hopeful — and I’ve never felt such energy. I’m seized by a desperate desire to clean. I go tearing around my house, cleaning it from top to bottom. I dust the furniture. I scour the tub. I make the beds.” </li></ul><ul><li>Who said this about what? </li></ul>
    59. 87. Agassi on crystal meth. No pun intended

    61. 91. <ul><li>Ruth Kedar, designer of the Google logo </li></ul>
    62. 92. 20 <ul><li>One of the first choices of the director to play this role was Laurence Olivier. However, Olivier's agent refused the role saying, “Lord Olivier is not taking any jobs. He's very sick. He's gonna die soon and he's not interested.” Ironically, Olivier went on to live for 18 years after the refusal. Which role? </li></ul>
    63. 94. <ul><li>Evidently, it was an offer he COULD refuse. </li></ul>
    64. 95. 21 <ul><li>“ The storm had now definitely abated, and what thunder there was now grumbled over more distant hills, like a man saying &quot; ______ &quot; twenty minutes after admitting he's lost the argument.” </li></ul><ul><li>Fill up please. </li></ul>
    65. 98. 22 <ul><li>The picture shown in the next slide is a plaque in Riverside, Iowa, commemorating something. Put fundae pleez. </li></ul>

    77. 124. The Rocky Steps
    78. 125. 29 <ul><li>The exact origin is obscure. Its first known appearance in print occurred in 1847 in  The Knickerbocker , a New York monthly magazine: “.... There are 'quips and quillets' which seem actual conundrums, but yet are none. Of such is this: ‘Q?’ Are you 'out of town?' Do you 'give it up?' Well, then: ‘A!’” </li></ul><ul><li>Q and A? </li></ul>

    83. 135. Oumpah-pah le Peau-Rouge by René Goscinny & Albert Uderzo
    84. 136. 32 <ul><li>The word X originated in RAF aviators' slang in Malta, the Middle East and India, with the earliest recorded printed use being in a poem published in the journal  Aeroplane , in Malta in 1929. The concept of X’s responsible for sabotaging aircraft was popularised during WWII among airmen of the RAF. X’s were responsible for otherwise inexplicable accidents which sometimes occurred during their flights. As such, X’s were portrayed as being equal opportunity tricksters, taking no sides in the conflict, and acting out their mischief from their own self-interests. In reality, they were a form of &quot; buck passing &quot; or deflecting blame. X? </li></ul>
    85. 138. Gremlin <ul><li>from Falling Hare </li></ul>
    86. 139. 33 <ul><li>The X was founded for the &quot;increase and diffusion&quot; of knowledge from a bequest to the US by the British scientist James ____, who had never visited the United States himself. In his will, he stated that should his nephew, Henry James Hungerford, die without heirs, the estate would go to the US government for creating an &quot;Establishment for the increase & diffusion of Knowledge among men&quot;. The asteroid 3773 X, discovered in 1984, is named in its honour. X? </li></ul><ul><li>Once again, a clue would make it obvious. </li></ul>
    87. 141. The Smithsonian Institute
    88. 142. 34 <ul><li>The term &quot;nuking the fridge&quot; was coined after a 2008 movie. Put fundae. </li></ul>
    89. 144. <ul><li>The term is an allusion to a scene early in the 2008 film  Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull . It denotes an absurd plot point in film that challenges the viewer's suspension of disbelief. Saying that a movie series &quot;nukes the fridge&quot; is to say that it has fundamentally and permanently strayed from its original premise in an attempt by the writer or director to keep the story fresh, with a noticeable decline in quality. </li></ul>

    95. 156. Amelia Earhart
    96. 157. 38 <ul><li>The Y is what most X believe everything comes from, what everything currently exists within, and what everything returns to. It is the energy behind the existence of everything known or unknown to humanity, a theory in philosophy and theoretical physics, and may be compared to the pantheist god. The Y does not require prayer, worship, or other such actions as some other religions might. Most X choose to focus on the Y through one or more of the three widely accepted spiritual aspects: Personal, Living and Unifying. </li></ul><ul><li>Logo on next slide </li></ul>
    97. 160. May the Force be with you.
    98. 161. 39 <ul><li>X struggled to keep his homosexuality secret during his teenage years at school. When asked when he first acknowledged his sexuality, X quipped: “I suppose it all began when I came out of the womb. I looked back up at my mother and thought to myself, ‘That's the last time I'm going up one of those.’” He has claimed to hold the UK record for saying the F-word the most times on a live television broadcast.  A fan of cricket, X was recently interviewed for the  Ashes Fever  DVD, reporting on England's victory over Australia in the 2005 Ashes series. He has a considerable fan following on Twitter and counts Wikipedia  among his favourite websites “because I like to find out that I died”. X was best man at the wedding of Y (whom he considers to be his best friend) and is godfather to all three of Y’s children. X & Y? </li></ul>

    102. 168. 41 <ul><li>X is an American pop culture expression. Its origins are open to speculation. There are many urban legends attached to it. One states that Hitler believed X was some kind of American super spy because it kept turning up in secure Nazi installations, presumably having been actually brought on captured Allied military equipment. Another states that Stalin was the first to enter an outhouse especially built for the leaders at the Potsdam conference. Upon exiting, Stalin asked an aide: &quot;Who is this X?&quot; Another legend states that a German officer, having seen frequent &quot;X’s&quot; posted in different cities, told all of his men that if they happened to come across &quot;X&quot; he wanted to question him personally. X? </li></ul>
    103. 171. 42 <ul><li>X is celebrated every May 25 th  as a tribute by fans of the late author Y. On this day, fans carry something with them to demonstrate their love for the books and the author. The commemoration was first held in 2001, two weeks after Y’s death on May 11 th . What? </li></ul><ul><li>Oh and no points for guessing Y. </li></ul>
    104. 173. Towel Day
    105. 174. <ul><li>“ A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough. ”   </li></ul><ul><li>— Douglas Adams,  The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy </li></ul>
