The Rules

Welcome to Exquizite Quizine, a quizzing blog, whose weird set of questions and irregularity of updation are but a reflection of similar qualities in it's creator. Welcome to this blog an good luck in answering the questions which feature here, and you're welcome to post answers as comments. Just make sure that if you're answering questions then encrypt them in any ingenious fashion which ensures that others don't end up accidentally reading them. One suggestion is ROT13[W]

Cheerio and as the notice on some other less well known place says, Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter.

(4) Forth with the Fourth

The fourth one was one of the more arbit ones. Without further ado I present the answers:

  • Q1: The answer to this one was Che, as in the Ernesto "Che" Guevara. [The second clue was just some kind of Pig-Latinesque way of encoding]

  • Q2: The answer is of course Zamenhof, the inventor of Esperanto(if you haven't heard of Esperanto, you should check it out!)). It was a bit vague, but the number of langugages he knew and spoke, should have been a hint of sorts.

  • Q3: This was definitely the most vague question even I have come up with so far, and I'm sorry for that. The guy was Julian Schwinger, of the Feynman, Tomonaga, Schwinger, QED Nobel. The incident is about a course he did with Victor La Mer, where La Mer apparently flunked him. I got this incident from Jagdish Mehra's biography of Schwinger, Climbing the Muntain (Incidentially, if you're interested in science than you should definitely check out some of Mehra's scientific biographies. He's covered Schwinger, Feynman, Pauli, and many other greats, in his splendid style of writing which actually does justice to these great scientists by focussing on their work in a fairly detailed technical way, which is refreshingly missing in most biographies to do with science)

Heheh... It's been a long time since the blog saw updates. Sumeet got the first two (with some googling), but the third was unfortunately formulated in so a vague a manner by yours truly, that I'm not sure it's even possible to deduce an answer from it.
