  12. 12. 6<br />X is a 2009 Indian comedy film directed by ShashankaGhosh and written by Rajesh Devraj. It is a spoof on Indian western movies, featuring songs, melodrama and action sequences including a duel in a traffic jam.<br />The movie is based on a character created for television promos at the time of the launch of the music network Channel [V] in 1994. The character had a cult following, and made catchphrases like ‘_________' and 'We are like this only' popular. In recent years, the character has inspired a sequence from Om Shanti Om where Shah Rukh Khan does a take-off, incorporating elements of Tamil legend Rajinikanth's performances.<br />
  13. 13. Answer: X- Quick Gun Murugan, Y- “Mind it”<br />
  14. 14. 7<br />Y refer to a spectrum of powers which influenced the thoughts of sentient creatures, most commonly used to coerce into agreement by suggestion through voice manipulation, or to cause one to reveal information. This allowed its practitioners to resolve matters in a non-violent way.<br />When using a Y, an X often waved his or her hand to aid in the persuasion and adopted a peculiar tone of voice along with a casual facial expression. The target of the Y also tended to adopt a casual tone of voice but a peculiar facial expression. <br />Should it succeed, he or she then agreed to whatever was being said to them without being able to think for themselves. Moments later, they would feel puzzled about their new opinion, but usually didn't feel like changing it back.<br />
  15. 15. Answer: The Jedi Mind trick<br />
  16. 16. 8<br />“In view of the decision that the game is to go forward, both X and Y have been asked to work out a mutual and professional working relationship. For this, performance will be the criteria, applicable to everyone in the team or associated with it.. Mutual trust is important. Henceforth no player/captain/coach will write or have any interaction with the media. Going to the media will lead to disciplinary action.”<br />What are we talking about?<br />
  17. 17. Answer: The Ganguly- Chappell rift<br />
  18. 18. 9<br />The religion Y has historically been used as a means to express Z nationalism and ethnic identity, especially prior to the end of World War II. It has served to symbolize and provide a sense of belonging, to identify and unify the Z people culturally, and to serve as a barrier demarcating the Z from other peoples, providing them with a sense of cultural uniqueness. In its association with Y, the sport X has also been seen as a bulwark of Z tradition.<br />In recent years, X has come under a cloud of accusations of corruption, bribery and match-fixing. Popularized in Steven Levitt's book Freakonomics(the chapter "What do school teachers and X ____ have in common?"), the study found that 70% of those with 7–7 records on the final day of the tournament (i.e., seven wins and seven losses, and one fight to go) won. <br />When the former X _______, also known as Onarutostablemaster, and his supporter ____________came forward with allegations of match rigging, drug use, sexcapades, tax evasion, and close ties to the mafia, both were found dead in the same hospital, hours apart on April 14, 1996, though there was no proof of poisoning.<br />
  19. 19. Answer: X- Sumo wrestling Y- Shinto religion<br />Z- Japan<br />
  20. 20. 10<br />When Mark Twain visited Hawaii in 1866 he wrote,<br /> "In one place we came upon a large company of naked natives, of both sexes and all ages, amusing themselves with the national pastime of X."<br />No, its not what you think!<br />It is a commonly-held belief that X originated in Hawaii. This X on a plank was different to the woven reed boat X presumed to have originated in Peru. X, in a form very similar to its modern one was witnessed and described by European sources including Captain Cook during his explorations less than 300 years ago. It is safe to assume that X had been taking place for many years before that time, however, we cannot be certain how long before, because there is no physical evidence of earlier X in Polynesia.<br />For centuries X was a central part of ancient Polynesian culture. X might have been first observed by Europeans at Tahiti in 1767 by Samuel Wallis and the crew members of the Dolphin who were the first Europeans to visit the island in June 1767. Lieutenant James King was the first one who wrote about the art of X on Hawaii when completing the journals of Captain James Cook upon Cook's death in 1779.<br />References to X on single canoe hulls are also verified for pre-contact Samoa, where X was called fa'ase'e or se'egalu and Tonga.<br />The man known as "The Pioneer of Modern X" is the Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku, who was a Gold medal winning Olympic swimmer who brought X into the public consciousness in the form it is currently known.<br />
  21. 21. Answer: Surfing<br />
  22. 22. 11<br />Formerly, X were worn for hard physical work; they were more durable than a textile garment and easier to clean. Today, they are mostly worn as leisure wear.<br />X were once widespread among Germanic men of the Alpine and surrounding regions, including Bavaria, Austria, and the German-speaking part of Italy's province of South Tyrol. But they were not usually worn in southwestern Germany or Switzerland.<br />X have remained regionally popular and are commonly associated with virility and brawn. Some men wear them when gardening, hiking, working outdoors, or attending folk festivals or beer gardens. They are rarely seen elsewhere and have acquired some camp connotations in the rest of Central Europe. Nevertheless, they are a symbol of regional pride in Bavaria and the other areas where they are still commonly seen. Their role in Bavaria is thus comparable to that of the kilt in Scotland and the cowboy hat in the United States.<br />
  23. 23. Answer: X- Lederhosen<br />
  24. 24. 12<br />Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues and organs, but principally attacks synovial joints. The process produces an inflammatory response of the synovium (synovitis) secondary to hyperplasia of synovial cells, excess synovial fluid, and the development of pannus in the synovium. The pathology of the disease process often leads to the destruction of articular cartilage and ankylosis of the joints. <br />NOTABLE CASES<br />James Coburn claimed to have healed the condition using pills containing a sulfur-containing compound on his return to acting.<br />Jamie Farr, American actor, famous for his role as Max Klinger on the 1970s television series M*A*S*H.<br />Sandy Koufax, an American Hall-of-Fame baseball pitcher who played from 1955 to 1966 for the Los Angeles Dodgers.<br />_____________, cricketer who had to retire from active play as he could no longer straighten his fingers because of rheumatoid arthritis.<br />
  25. 25. Answer : Billy Bowden<br />
  26. 26. 13<br />A German peddler, Antonoine Feuchtwanger, sold ________ in the streets of St. Louis, Missouri. He would supply white gloves with each purchase so that his customers would not burn their hands while eating the ________. He saw his profits going down because the customers kept taking the gloves and walking off with them. His wife suggested that he put the __________ in a bun instead. He reportedly asked his brother-in-law, a baker, for help. The baker improvised a solution - X.<br />
  27. 27. Answer : Hot Dog<br />
  28. 28. 14<br />X has revealed in interviews that the character Y was created based on a couple of instances involving his family. His father loved watching British comedies with actors like Peter Sellers and Alec Guinness, so X always wanted to play an English character in a comedy. <br />He also said that one night after coming home from hockey practice, he started flirting with his wife in an English accent. His wife laughed and told him to write the routine down, so he could do it again. Writing the routine down led to this script.<br />Some items on Y's "Things to do before I die" list:<br />Become ______ ______ of _______<br />Be Cryogencally Frozen<br />Travel through Time, Backwards and Forwards<br />Catch Z in the First Act<br />Find true love<br />Gain my father's respect<br />Z is Y's arch-enemy and is also portrayed by X.<br />
  29. 29. X- Mike Myers<br />Y- Austin Powers<br />Z- Dr Evil<br />
  30. 30. 15<br />Some hold that when confronted with unfortunate events, or just when these are mentioned or suggested, a person wanting to avoid that fate could resort to the sign to ward off bad luck.<br />In Italy, the usage of the sign is a common curse as well as an accusation of having an unfaithful wife.<br />During an European Union meeting in February 2002, Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi was photographed performing this gesture behind the back of the Spanish foreign minister. When questioned about the incident, he replied "I was only joking."<br />On the cover of The Beatles' Yellow Submarine album (1969), the cartoon of John Lennon's right hand is making the sign above Paul McCartney's head. For many fans, this was one of the many "Paul is dead" clues. Some may think it is possible that the cartoonist misrepresented the sign for "I love you", which is very similar and more in keeping with the band's public message and image. One of these photos of Lennon doing the hand sign appears on the cover of a Beatles single release shortly after, making it the first time the hand sign appears on a ____ release.<br />
  31. 31. Sign of horns<br />
  32. 32. 16<br />Id the movie and what movie is it a spoof/remake of?<br />
  33. 33. KoochiekoochieHotahai<br />KuchKuchhotahai<br />
  34. 34. 17<br />The X, in which the players all face inward in a tight circle, was invented in 1892 in a school intended for the education of deaf and hard-of-hearing students. When passing on orders to his team, the coach realized that his hand signals could be read by opposing players, a particular concern when they played other schools for the deaf. To remedy this, he had his players form a circle so that his sign-language signals could be sent and received without anyone on the sidelines or on the opposing team seeing. X?<br />
  35. 35. Huddle<br />
  36. 36. 18<br />The X Monastery or Temple is a Chán Buddhist temple at Song Shan near Zhengzhou City Henan Province in Dengfeng, China Founded in the 5th century, the monastery is long famous for its association with Chinese martial arts and particularly with X Kung Fu, and it is the Mahayana Buddhist monastery perhaps best known to the Western world.<br />The X Monks receive 3, 6, or 9 dots depending on their level. The marks on a monk’s head aren’t dots, but burn scars. The monks who are ordained to a particular level can go through a ritual during which a special device holding cones of incense are rapidly pressed into their scalps.<br />
  37. 37. Shaolin<br />
  38. 38. 19<br />“X" is a song by American singer-songwriter Y, recorded for her fourth studio album of the same name (1989).<br />According to Y, "X" was about a passionate young girl in love with God, whose importance makes Him the only male figure in her life. <br />The lyrics of the song were inspired by Y's own Catholic upbringing, and was used as a metaphor for sexual intercourse, containing ambiguous innuendos referring to fellatio and orgasm. "X" received widespread acclaim from music critics, who praised Y's skilled songwriting and improved vocals.<br />"X" is more memorable for its accompanying music video which led to a huge uproar after its release. Directed by Mary Lambert, the video features Y as a woman who witnessed a murder and fled to church for safety. The clip incorporates Catholic symbols such as stigmata and burning crosses, and a dream about making love to a saint. Critically appreciated, the Vatican condemned the music video after its release, while family and religious groups protested its broadcast. The song was featured in a television advertisement which was later removed from broadcast, following the protests surrounding the music video.<br /> It was also featured on American television show Glee, in an episode themed around Y. "X" has been marked as a turning point in Y's career, as she began to be viewed as an efficient businesswoman, someone who knew how to sell a concept.<br />
  39. 39. “Like a prayer” by Madonna<br />
  40. 40. 20<br />X holds the accolade of being the first cricketer in the world to have scored 5,000 runs, taken 100 wickets, held 100 catches and received 100 caps in both ODIs and Tests, a feat only matched since by Jacques Kallis.In his autobiography, Steve Waugh writes that "quickness of feet and sweet yet brutally efficient stroke play were X's trademarks."He was routinely prematurely dismissed, however, after losses in concentration.<br />Y also thought very highly of X's footwork and, in 2008, named him among the top 100 cricketers of his time, citing in particular his ability to disguise his dances down the track. Y felt that determining when a batsman was going to give the charge was one of the most important things for a spinner, and that X was the best at making it indeterminable. "During the 1995 series," he wrote, "this really nagged away at me, because I couldn't spot any of the usual clues even though I knew there had to be a sign that would give him away. On a number of occasions, I stopped at the point of delivery to see if he was giving anything away with his footwork. Most batsmen would be looking to get out of their ground at that point, whereas X just stayed set. In the end, after watching him closely time after time, I managed to crack it. When he wanted to hit over the top, he just looked at me instead of tapping his crease as usual and looking down. Of course, my knowing what he was going to do did not always stop him from doing it."<br />
  41. 41. X – Carl Hooper<br />Y- Shane Warne<br />
  42. 42. 21<br />Dress : Long hair, a white turban, earrings, and necklaces of shells or beads. Baskets /pots hanging from a bamboo pole slung over the shoulder. <br />Instrument : A flute-like instrument made from a gourd, known as a been or pungi. <br />Method : Hypnotism and seemingly dangerous acts of juggling and sleight of hand.<br />What are we talking about?<br />
  43. 43. Snake Charming<br />
  44. 44. 22<br />1996 saw the World Cup returning to the sub-continent. With it started the war to woo a potentially huge Indian market. Though Coca Cola had secured the rights as the official soft drink of the World Cup, rival Pepsi though weren't ready to surrender. They went on to steal the thunder with their 'X' campaign. The instance marks perhaps the most famous example of 'Y' in the history of business related to sports in India.<br />
  45. 45. X- “Nothing official about it”<br />Y- Ambush Marketing<br />
  46. 46. 23<br />The first reference to an X is in the work of Hero of Alexandria, a first-century engineer and mathematician. His machine accepted a Y and then gave holy water. When the Y was deposited, it fell upon a pan attached to a lever. The lever opened a valve which let some water flow out. The pan continued to tilt with the weight of the Y until it fell off, at which point a counterweight snapped the lever up and turned off the valve.<br />However, X waited for the Industrial Age before coming to prominence. The first modern Y-operated X were introduced in London, England in the early 1880s, for post cards. The first X in the U.S. was built in 1888 by the Thomas Adams Gum Company, selling gum on New York City train platforms. The idea of adding games to these machines as a further incentive to buy came in 1897 when the Pulver Manufacturing Company added small figures, which would move around whenever somebody bought some gum from their machines. This idea spawned a whole new type of mechanical device known as the "trade stimulators". The birth of slot machines and pinball is ultimately rooted in these early devices.<br />
  47. 47. X- Vending Machine<br />Y- Coin<br />
  48. 48. 24<br />The original prototype of the X was created using a matchbox and matchsticks. This idea then led to the first tables in Germany, which were boxes made out of plywood with dowel rods and blocks of wood for figures. The modern tables we see today have replaced the dowels with chrome rods and the wooden blocks with figurines.<br />In the early 1960’s, while on duty in Germany, Lawrence Patterson arranged to have the European game imported to the United States. Part of its initial popularity in the U.S. is thought to have been sparked by World War II veterans and the game’s use in their rehabilitation as it was used to improve hand-eye coordination.<br />

  54. 54. The 10000 brick wall built at Chinnaswamy stadium in honour of RahulDravid reaching 10000 runs<br />
  55. 55. 29<br />The X is a Dark Horse comic book series created by writer John Arcudi and artist Doug Mahnke, and based on a concept by publisher Mike Richardson. The series follows a magical X which imbues the wearer with reality-bending powers, a banana yellow suit and physical imperviousness, as well as bypassing the wearer's psychological inhibitions. It was adapted into the 1994 film The X, starring ________.<br />The movie version of the character subsequently appeared in an animated TV series entitled The X: The Animated Series though the main character was voiced by a different actor.<br />
  56. 56. The Mask<br />
  57. 57. 30<br />X were brought to Europe by Marco Polo towards the end of the 13th century, and were brought back by sailors from Japan and Malaysia in the 16th and 17th centuries. Although they were initially regarded as mere curiosities, but by the 18th and 19th centuries X were being used as vehicles for scientific research especially in meteorology, aeronautics, wireless communications and photography; <br />In India and many neighbouring countries , they have been regarded as a source of recreation and a popular cultural sport, known as "X fighting". It is believed that X were brought to India by Chinese travelers F Hien and Huin Tsang.<br />The skins of X are made from a lightweight thin paper and the spars are usually made from a lightweight and flexible wood, usually bamboo.<br />In modern American fighters, the X skins are made from a variety of synthetic materials – mylar, aircraft insulation (orcon or insulfab), nylon, and polyester sheeting. The spine is constructed of fiberglass or carbon fiber.<br />
  58. 58. Kites and Kite fighting<br />
  59. 59. 31<br />Way of the Dragon (known as "Return of the Dragon" in the United States to cash in on the success of "Enter the Dragon") is a 1972 Hong Kong martial arts film written, produced, directed by and starring Bruce Lee.<br />This movie was bloody epic for many reasons and the most MASS thing about the movie was a fight between Bruce Lee and X filmed on location in Y. It was the last movie to be filmed there.<br />Since he was the director and wanted to make himself look awesome, Bruce Lee had X put on weight so he would looks less impressive by comparison. The fight scene also features a cat, for reasons unknown to us.<br />This is one of only two films in which X plays a villain and the only film in which he is killed (he is only knocked out in the other film). <br />Useless trivia:<br />-> Part of the music in this film is actually originally from the EnnioMorricone score for the Sergio Leone western C'eraunavoltail West. The music used for X is taken from the song "Man with a Harmonica."<br />-> Stephen Chow will direct and star in a remake version of the film entitled Tai Chi. The film is also rumored to star Jack Black and Anne Hathaway, and began shooting in June 2010. It will be Chow's first American movie. We don't know why he's bothering to do so as there is no way it will be as amazing as the original.<br />
  60. 60. X- Chuck Norris Y- Colosseum<br />
  61. 61. 32<br />According to the band's lead guitarist, <br />The song was conceived at a time when the audiences were getting so involved in the concerts that the band would have to stop to let the crowd do some singing on its own. It was written as the ultimate in audience participation.<br />That big powerful drum sound to which we stomp isn't what it seems. The recording of X actually contains no drums. The song was recorded in an English studio that was an old converted church. The sound was created by the four band members (and apparently some helpers) stomping over and over again on an old wooden floor. That sound was then over-dubbed repeatedly. <br />
