Yes, it's back. And for the 20th edition we have a nice pair for you.
So here THEY are:
X: What could it be?
x: I'm sure we'll find it, we just need to focus.
X: You know, I've never seen you in a modest mood.
x: Look we need to go over the evidence. There are others who are hot on the topic.
X: Yes but fortunately their first guess was a bit off.
x: To recapitulate, there was that first interesting finding here.
X: And now we have the diffraction data from our collaborators.
x: Yes and don't forget about the ratios.
X: All very suggestive. I say we head down to the pub and talk about in the company of young tanned females.
x: Brilliant idea.
Any clue who these are, or what they're talking about? Email me or leave your answers in the comment section.
Lucky day! It's an easy one and I seem to be the first to answer! Though I must say, the pictures didn't help; the dialogue, par contre, was a bit too explicit :-)
Since I don't like spoilers, let's just say that "it has not escaped our notice that the specific pairing" ... was a very succesful one.
Gosh, two locations... Northwestern University main campus and medical campus? The main campus has a beach, which would explain the "young tanned females." But the photos don't look right. Aaiiiiiiiiiiiieee! Those buses are driving on the wrong side of the road!
A request: please make it a little more challenging. Although I should add that the second one is not obvious.
OK I made it too obvious. But officially no one has given an answer ... and Acme, if you're so confident about #2, then cough up a campus name.
How can this be? I checked Friday and assumed the game was over! With the obvious clue I thought dileffante or Acme would respond immediately.
On the off chance that someone will actually read this:
The top is Cavendish Labs off Madingly Road in Cambridge, the bottom is the Kings College campus on Waterloo Road in London. Sheeeesh!
Just for completeness - the large building at the top of the King's College picture is the Franklin-Wilkins Building.
Finally and answer!!!!
(yeah where are you mr know-it-all Acme???)
