The BITS-PILANI QUIZZING FORUM!

Back with a Bong!

My first post in ages...so here we go.

Q1. Quite simply-connect






Q2. Which contest am I referring to? (obviously filling in the blank will give you the answer)

At the contest, the candidates had to fulfill certain criteria. ______ had to be an Indian and not the more glossy foreign kind from New Zealand, Australia and Europe._____ had to beautiful, which meant that her head and legs had to be shapely and in proportion to her torso. Finally, the gait had to be firm--hobbling or stooping was a straight disqualifier.

Q3. On December 28th, 2005, 41 year old Sharon Tendler got married to 35 year old Cindy in a highly publicized wedding in Eliat, Israel. What was so unusual about this wedding that got it the media attention?


Time for answers then-
1) No one seems to have cracked the first one, the answer for which is the song 'The End' by The Doors. The first pic is that of a scene from the movie Apocalypse Now. 'The End' was the theme song for the movie. The second pic is a poster for the play 'Oedipus Rex' . The Oedipus Complex is one of the governing themes of the song. The third pic is that of the drug oxymorphone, also known as 'the blue bus'. The last pic is that of Frederich Nietzsche, whose concept of going beyond the limited types of human beings known for so far greatly influenced the lyrics in the song. Final answer-The End by the doors.
2) Beauty pageant for cows held recently at Madhya Pradesh
3) Cindy (Cinderella) was a male dolphin
