Been a long time since we had a very deep connect, so here goes.

The mathematician/astronomer (1) solved an age old problem in classical mechanics (X) in an interesting way. He predicted a quirky side-effect of this (Y) that was only confirmed many years later in the interactions between (2) and the groups represented by (3) and (4).

Identify 1, 2, X, Y and the groups represented by 3 and 4.

Happy Birthday, Boiledbeans!

One year ago, at this exact timestamp, we posted the first question on Boiledbeans with a lot of excitement. 365 days have passed since then and the excitement is still growing!

We have not missed posting a question even for a single day and given the fact that we are seperated by timezones, face crazyly strict corporate firewalls at work and have bursts of out of phase “social life”, it is quite a feat for two lazy procastinators like Srikanth and me :)

We are very thankful to all Boiledbeans users who have inspired and motivated us to keep Boiledbeans ticking and as a token of appreciation, we will be handing out FREE T-Shirts which look like this (click to enlarge) to the following people. The reasons for picking them is also stated here

udupendra — All time highest scorer
Dibyo — All time second highest scorer

duriel — Longest runlength
varuns88 — Second longest runlength

sidsen — For sending in maximum number of awesome guest questions.

hema — Special thanks to her for helping us co-ordinate posting activities.

piezocake — Just like that :)

Thanks guys! We will be contacting you soon to get your t-shirt sizes.

And now for the best part:
Two of this month’s toppers will get free t-shirts! There are a few things though,

  1. It cannot be someone who is already in the list above. So, if varuns88 ends up the topper of this month, he will not get another t-shirt. Instead, the next highest scorer will get it
  2. If there is a tie, we will post a tie-breaker and pick only 2 winners.

So, if you want a free t-shirt, dont miss out any question posted this month!

For those of you who are interested in buying a t-shirt, please contact us at boiledbeans@gmail.com and we will be happy to send you one.

Thanks all, and keep quizzing!
