Don’t forget: guest questions should go to boiledbeans@gmail.com.

Also, please try to avoid copy-pasting websites verbatim into answers. We’re usually quite liberal if you just give us a one-liner that captures the essence of the answer, so that’s more than enough!

This ancient sword is made out of steel which is full of a “miracle material”, “discovered” only in 1991. The presence of this material made this sword extremely hard and flexible. This sword is claimed to be the first place where this “miracle material” was used (much before it was “discovered”).

Identify the sword and the “miracle material”

This company claimed tons of things. When asked to show proof, this was the closest they came to showing it

But, as every sane person expected, it couldn’t stand up to closer examination, and even these proofs turned out to be false.

Which company? What claim of theirs am I referring to here?

We have finally decided to give guest quiz masters a point for their questions. From now on, you need not have to worry about losing a point or cracking your run-length if a question you sent in gets posted.

We will give points even for the older guest questions, but since our back-end needs you to post a comment to get a point, post a comment under the post which contains your question.

The scores should become upto date over the weekend. So, post a comment under your question before that!

Those of you who want to send in questions, you can mail it to boiledbeans@gmail.com
