9th December - "Who am I"

Unread postby Max ADU » Sun Dec 09, 2012 11:14 am

size=150]“Who is it” and “What was it” [/size]
I found a really interesting one for you to solve...

Like my other quizzes, they make you work for your points. There is no useless clues that could fit any number of people.
Honest MAX gives you 5 clues that you can find the answer with, unlike someone else I won’t mention.. clues like “Born in Australia” This person is male” :P

So for 5 Points...
“Who is it” and “What was it”
    Clue 1 – This person was the first one to start doing this
    Clue 2 – Named after make believe characters
    Clue 3 – Named them after people he didn’t like
      Wragge was also responsible for the convention of naming cyclones. His original idea was to name them after the letters of the Greek alphabet but he later used the names of figures from Polynesian mythology and politicians.
    Clue 4 – This person knew Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
      Sir Arthur Conan Doyle sought him out in New Zealand to ask for his views on spiritualism before writing 'The Wanderings of a Spiritualist' in 1921.
    Clue 5 – Because of this person other people around the world started doing this too.

You have to Noon Mon 10th December to give me a the two correct answers.

Congratulations to Lola in answering correctly... with the answer Clement Lindley Wragge who was the first man ever to name cyclones and weather storms. Lola has gained 5 points for the win..

He may not be Australian born.. but did create history or know for what he did in Australia and was made famous for it.

eg. Nicole Kidman is an American.. but considered as an Australian Actress. As stated before quizzes are Australian bases.
