Kindly excuse if this has been asked before:

It is widely believed the term X is derived from the 1970 X sketch of the BBC television comedy series "Monty Python's Flying Circus".The sketch is set in a cafe where nearly every item on the menu includes spiced pork and meat. As the waiter recites the menu, a chorus of Viking patrons drowns out all conversations with a song repeating "X, X, lovely X, wonderful X". The excessive amount of X mentioned in the sketch is a reference to British rationing during World War II. X was one of the few meat products that was excluded from rationing, and hence was widely available.

Clue: X is an acronym whose full form is there in the question.

Rebus - Interesting

Hey i found this interesting set of rebuses on Facebook. ID the following Bands.















Identify the Ponzi idiom.

___________________ is an English idiom referring to taking money (or other thing) from one party to pay one's debt to another. In other words, the idiom usually means to create a problem to solve another, especially when applied to money or other resources (such a taking an employee away from an important and overdue project to finish another that is also overdue).
It may refer to the Apostles X and Y, and may be derived from a 12th-century Latin expression: "As it were that one would crucify X in order to redeem Y.", though another supposed source is the use of funds from Westminster Abbey (The Collegiate Church of Y) to pay for the construction of ____________.

Proper Operation:

When operating properly, the backboard will raise from the storage
(down) position to playing (up) position in seconds. Push-button
must be depressed to operate. Mechanism holds position when lift
power is interrupted.

Pressure Adjustment:
If the backboard lifting speed should be operating improperly
(slowly or not at all), with motor and pump operating, it will
probably need a pressure adjustment
The pressure valve protrudes from the top of the hydraulic pump
housing. Turning the slotted valve clockwise increases hydraulic
pressure. Turn 1/8 turn at a time until backboard lifts to playing
position in seconds. Secure proper position of pressure adjustment
screw with lock-nut.

NOTE: This pressure adjustment is made by the manufacturer - field
adjustment is uncommon.

Stop-10 Adjustment:
This adjustment is located on the same side as control panel on the
front bottom-left of the mast.

Its a operation procedure of some mechanism.Where is this used?


X is a state in northern Mexico with a mainland area of 244,938 square kilometers , slightly bigger than the United Kingdom. It is surrounded by the Mexican states of Sonora , Sinaloa, Durango and Coahuila and by the U.S. states of Texas and New Mexico. X is the largest state in Mexico by area, and therefore has the nickname El Estado Grande ("The Big State").
Y is named after X. Given the above description, it is pretty ironic that Y is named so. Of course, Y's origin is X.
Btw X=Y . ID

Random geography

X informally called Yantarny kray (meaning amber region) is a federal subject of Russia on the Baltic coast.
X forms the westernmost part of the Russian Federation, but it has no land connection to the rest of Russia. Since the fall of the Soviet Union it has been an exclave of the Russian Federation surrounded by Lithuania and Poland. Borderless travel to the main part of Russia is only possible by sea or air. This political isolation became more pronounced when Lithuania and Poland both became members of the European Union and NATO, and entered the Schengen Zone, which means that X is surrounded by the territories of these organizations as well.
Its largest city and the administrative center is ____________ (formerly known as Königsberg), which has historical significance as both a major city of the historical state of Prussia and the capital of the former German province of East Prussia, partitioned after World War II between the USSR and Poland, and renamed after Mikhail _________.

Population: 968,200 (2004 est.)

Looks that matter!

____________________ is an expression that has been around for several hundred years, and it has the same meaning as ‘Y is as Y _____’ although the latter would much suit the fairer kind. What the expression literally means is that it is not the looks of the individual that are important, but the good deeds that he performs: in other words, good behaviour and chivalrous deeds are much more important than good looks. Virtuous enough, eh? :D

*John Smith may not be much to look at, but he is always helping those who are in need. X is as X ________.

According to some scholars, the expression was first recorded by the English poet, Geoffrey Chaucer. In the movie ‘Forrest Gump’, the main character (Forrest) comes up with his own version of the proverb: ‘Z is as Z ____.’

What's the good proverb and its Y form?

PS: Z will crown you "Z" and fetch extra points
