  • Re: "The 33rd Annual Xmas Quiz"

    Since the yoga question isn't getting any takers, I'll ask it again plus the next question in line.

    16. There are 12 mantras that accompany each Surya Namaskara. During each namaskara, how many yogic postures are assumed? Bonus question: What is the informal name for the assumption of these yogic postures?

    17. How did mayonnaise get its name?

      Mayonnaise is a French name. So, I assume it came from the French, probably named after a place.

        But County Mayo is in Ireland. So maybe it was named by a French expat living in Ireland? Nah!

          Half time at the Rose Bowl, so I will update.

          Question 16: Surya Namaskara is Sanskrit for Sun Salutation, according to wiki. So it is not an obscure person. I'm not one for yoga, so I have no further comment.

          Question 17: DoubleRBar is on the right track, but we will probably need more details. And, no, County Mayo is not involved.

            I have no more details, but would guess the name is from a place in Europe probably very close to France, Spain, or Portugal.

              Hint on question 16: It is a number, give a guess.

              Hint on question 17: part of the name of the location is the last name of a rather well known US distance coach.
