This collection caused quite some buzz a year or so ago – as much for its business model as for its content!

No need to identify each, just name the collection

Sitter for the day (kinda making up for the delay,  I guess?). What is this a map of? This is not an exhaustive list.

Overload

Today’s question comes to us from Dibyo, to celebrate his 1000 point run :)

Cryptic Question: This is three of what?

(AutoRaja will probably not be able to handle this answer very well, so it’ll be evaluated manually eventually)

1-1000, 2-1000!

More good news today – udupendra has hit 1000 points! Excellent stuff saar – congratulations!

udupendra was one of the earliest people on this site, and has been a regular face for years now. This is also definitely not his first record here :) He was consistently topping the charts at BB before receiving some very stiff competition! Here’s hoping for many, many more answers from you!

Udupendra gets a star of honor – an achievement badge plus a special badge  as well.

Today’s question’s dedicated to udupendra of course :) (although there’s no ‘1000’ funda in this question like there was in yesterday’s)

Very simple – identify the ‘system’ being depicted here.

A ‘grand’ old man.

Hello intrepid quizzers! Today is a landmark day in the history of Boiledbeans :) Those of you who’ve been keeping track of the scores would have noticed this already.

Dibyo has just scored ONE THOUSAND POINTS!

Congratulations Mr. Dibyo! This is no mean feat, and we at BB really appreciate the effort! It’s always great to see people regularly coming onto BB to answer questions and really encourages us to keep posting.

Dibyo gets a star of honor – an achievement badge plus a special badge that we’ll apply shortly.

Today’s question is also dedicated to Dibyo!

The box in the map below points out a special path. Which vehicle holds the record for the fastest crossing of this path (albeit inaccurate)?
