  1. Whoo, killer connect question!

    The first picture is the coat of arms of Cambridge University. Syd Barett and Dave Gilmour lived in Cambridge, UK and formed Pink Floyd at Cambridge.

    The fourth picture is that of a worm hole. The world’s leading expert on worm holes, Stephen Hawking is also at Cambridge.

    The second picture, is that of Lou Gehrig, who suffered from an (at that time) unknown disease which left him disabled and eventually caused his death. The disease, now known as Lou Gehrig’s disease (actually ALS), is what afflicts Stephen Hawking.

    More connections: Stephen Hawking recently lost a bet on wormholes in 2004 and awarded John Preskill of Caltech with the book “Total Baseball, The Ultimate Baseball Encyclopedia”; the second picture depicts a baseball player.

    Hawking’s actual synthesiser voice was used on parts of the Pink Floyd song “Keep Talking” from the 1994 album The Division Bell.

    That’s all the connections I could find!

    Stephen hawking.

    1) The Cambridge coat of arms – Hawking is Lucasian prof at Cambridge
    2) Lou Gehrig – had motor neuron disease, like stephen hawking.
    3) Pink Floyd – a pink floyd member recently submitted his thesis at cambridge
    4) Black holes… And stephen hawking… ’nuff said.

    1) Shield of the University of Cambridge
    2) Lou Gehrig
    3) A Pink Floyd Division Bell T-Shirt
    4) I cannot figure this one out – the light is not coming back to my retina.

    Hence, the connect is Stephen Hawking and I demand a point.

    1. University of Cambridge logo
    2. Cudnt get this :-(
    3. The Division Bell album artwork on a black t-shirt
    4. “Dark side of the moon” – famous album

    Floyd, the band is from Cambridge, and both Division bell and Dark side of the Moon are famous floyd albums .

    The baseball player most probably is a huge floyd fan :-P

  5. Cant help but notice tht the last two bear a connection with Stephen Hawking. Does it hold for the first two pics as well???

    Stephen Hawking’s sunthesiser voice used in Keep Talking

    And the last pic of a black hole…

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – Lou Gehrig’s Disease

    Lou gehrig – suffers from Lou Gehrig’s Disease :D
    Stephen hawking – suffers from Lou Gehrig’s Disease
    Stephen Hawking – Black hole

  7. prasanthnori

    1) The cambridge arms symbol
    2) Lou gehrig – had Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ALS) the same condition that even stephen hawking had who was from cambridge
    3) Pink floyd- The division bell – pink floyd member gave his thesis to cambridge

    4) Is a famous black-hole in our galaxy – “black holes and baby universes” – a book by stephen hawking – so it has a lot to do with stephen hawking

  8. Prasad

    Stephan Hawking.
    He has Lou Gehrig’s Disease (named after the dude in the yankee’s uniform).
    His voice was featured in the Pink Floyd album, Division Bell and he, of course, did heck of a lot of work on Black Holes.which would be the last pic.

  9. Prasad

    And i missed it earlier, the first pic is the crest of Cambridge University where Stephen Hawking is the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics.
