2) What 'record' do these creatures hold? [okay, the second edition of these]




Answer(Highlight To View):It is the official longest page in wiki,
I dare you Read through the entire article, here it is.



3) Connect this fellow with a Google Inc. product.
One more thing,this fellow is quite irritating,trust me.

Answer(Highlight To View):

The Vid.,The Pic.

4) ____(A)____’s al-Shabaab group banned ______ (B)_____ sometime ago because they felt that it was too westernized and too anti-islam.
The extremist group in fact offered no official explanation for the ban, which are commonly cooked up and served across the Horn of Africa.
They refused to relax the ban even after being warned that more than a 100,000 people might have to die of starvation.

The reason for the ban is that (B) Resembles the holy trinity too much. (pictured below)
FI (A) & (B)

How I Wish (B) was my staple diet :D

Answer(Highlight To View):
Ze Samosa,the country  being Somalia.

5) Connect and explain.







This comes with a sorry to the non-Tamil makkal.

Answer(Highlight To View):
Thiruvilayadal ( Baliaah acts as the singer, Dr Balamurali Krishna sang the song ; Sivaji Ganesan acts as the singer of paatum naane while the original song was sung by T.M. Soundararajan.
Here's some more interesting Stuff related to this,
Tms was supposed to sing the oru naal podhuma and Balamurali was to sing paatum naane originally. Then Tms kicked up a fuss saying he doesnt want to lose even in a "competition" and even against siva peruman
So they hurriedly changed Balamurali to oru naal poduma, and changed the music of paatum naane to sing in 5 kattai = very loud, to suit TMS's voice

So here we have our first question where the answers is longer than the question :P
6) The first 3 to achieve what?




There are only two more people in the list of men to have achieved it. I am not sure if the 4th guy must be a part of the list but the 5th guy surely is.

Answer(Highlight To View): Nightwatchmen to score centuries, The Wiki Page.

7) The guy encircled, an industrialist and chemist, invited all great physicists and chemists of the world for a historic conference. Following the success of this conference, institutes started conducting such conferences every three years (there have been larger gaps though). A certain aniversary of this conference was (or still is being) celebrated with much grandeur across the world. As what?
And for brownie points, identify
i) the guy encircled and hence the name of such conferences
ii) All the men and woman

Answer(Highlight To View):
The conference was convened by Ernest Solvay , in Brussels in 1911. Its 100th anniversary 2011 was thus celebrated as the international year of chemistry.  Know more here. Some people think this is to commemorate Marie Curie's getting the 1911 Nobel. But this does not sound plausible since Marie Curie got the Nobel more than once. And even if Marie Curie hadn't got the 1911 Chemistry Nobel, somebody else would have got it. 


8)EASILY THE EASIEST QUESTION ON THE BLOG YET,


you have to be living on some other planet if you did not get this one.
Answer(Highlight To View):Muhuhahahaaa....
"Why This Kolaveri di??",

if you still do not get it,listen to the song again :\
PS: I still dont get what so good about the song,but yeah it is a viral vid and one can not debate that.

Yo Boys....(Here we go,the Vid)

Answer to Q.7 The person is Ernest Solvay and the Conference is 'Quantum Theory"

Q.4 Answer - (A) is Somalia And (B) is Samosa.........

The only answer I think I know is
4a) Somalia

For 1) I guess Kalidasi, who happens to be the only author in Sanskrit that I can think of, I'm afraid. The goddess with the black face is probably Kali. So that makes sense.

2) Maybe the highest selling game?

That'll have to be my guess.
