Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Wikipedia is a friend... though I could not find the correct answer there, I found this nice little sentence:
cào nǐ zǔzōng shíbā dài - f* your ancestors to the eighteenth generation (at least that's what it says...)

Other than that.... How about "diu nei"?


New question:
What was the name of the oil tanker that shipwrecked in Alaska in 1989, resulting in a major environmental disaster?

I have no idea what diu nei means, lol. But your choice of swearwords is very creative! My eyes went Shocked, heh.
"gan" is the simple phrase. You took it quite a bit further, Razz

But the oil tanker was called the Exxon Valdez.


Which of her heroines did Jane Austen like best/worst?

Best: Lizzie Bennet, at least she gave her most of her own personality, and by far the best marriage.

Least: Mh, difficult one. I'd guess Emma - she's one stuck-up little nightmare!

NEXT:
What is a "koi"?

Yes, you're right on both counts. In Emma, Austen wanted a heroine that "no one but herself would like, and not even very much, herself."
Koi?
I'm guessing you mean that huge brightly colored fish?

Dictionary definition: koi [koy]
(plural koi) or koi carp (plural koi carp)
noun
brightly colored carp: a carp with red-gold or white coloring, kept as an aquarium or ornamental pond fish. Native to: Japan, temperate regions of East Asia.
Latin name: Cyprinus carpio
[Early 18th century. < Japanese]

What is widely considered the most controversial piece of literature today?

Too hard? I wanted an opinion. My guess would be either Flowers in the Attic or Lolita. Anyway.

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. A rather unique name. But not as catchy as "Lady Gaga"

~~

Another easy one (well, for me at least). What do the 3 terms in Einstein's famous formula "E = mc^2" stand for?

Victoria, who reigned for 63+ years.
She might be outdone by Q. Elizabeth II, though, who is going strong with 59+ years.



What insane demand did the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar (that name ... wow) make on his courtiers during his rule? At least biblically anyway.
