Hi blogosphere..This is your humble co in-habitant  aquariangospel…aqua for short….following are a series of questions.. with this i aspire to partner ma buddy meyak as a serious co-author of this blog.

Standard Instructions…. Please dont wiki or google the answers…Coz you are not really proving your mettle as a quizzer to urself,leave alone others, by copy-pasting searched answers..

Lets Begin…

 1. What word in quizzin circles was derived from

4.  When asked how he came up with the idea for Y , X said the following:

 “There’s a page on Z  called “Bad jokes and other deleted nonsense”. People using Z would remove nonfactual content from pages that they were trying to clean up from vandalism and place it here. I read through a few pages of this before I realised that this was perhaps the best part of Z.”

Id X, Y and Z.

 

5. The line blanked out is a famous adage articulated by Cyril Northcote in an essay in The Economist in 1955… Gimme the adage.

It is a commonplace observation that ______________________________for its completion. Thus, an elderly lady of leisure can spend an entire day in writing and dispatching a postcard to her niece at Bognor Regis. An hour will be spent in finding the postcard, another in hunting for spectacles, half-an-hour in a search for the address, an hour and a quarter in composition, and twenty minutes in deciding whether or not to take an umbrella when going to the pillar-box in the next street. The total effort which would occupy a busy man for three minutes all told may in this fashion leave another person prostrate after a day of doubt, anxiety and toil.
