PS-I wanted to know if the questions are getting too easy ?I need u r feedback to make the blog better..
 if u have any complaints,questions,or anything then else then do say.


  1. 1)Micro instrumentation and telemetry systems.
    2)Must be some SOPA/PIPA guy.
    4)Lists I guess?
    6)This one is ambiguous, I say royal radar establishment.
    7)Steve Ballmer?
    8)Xanadu I guess?

    Yeah some feedback.. I'd say.. out of 10 questions 2 easy, 3 medium and 5 difficult.
    I don't like identify questions, I can't remember many people's pictures :D
    I mean , post a baby bill gates, who's gonna identify that?

    So ,the best would be connects.. cryptic connects.. this 8th one is pretty difficult and not many people are going to recognize Coleridge and Kublai khan.

    So, have as many connects as possible, connects are fun and they give a little more sense of accomplishment than textual or identify questions.

    Connects should be a combination of pictures and related text and should be cryptic.
    Some clues for the tough ones should help as well.
    Take a look at some Kryptx questions for good examples.

  3. plz dnt go by suyash beheras comments.........its abt exploring more nd more..........nt just lingering abt in d known facts

    1. Dude, Dibyendu, If you post an identify question, anyone can use google's reverse image search to find it. So I think incroporating them into connects is a better idea,
      Connects make you think more, take a look at IIT Kryptx questions.
