2012 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 5, Day 2

Post by DadofTwins » Tue Aug 28, 2012 1:20 am

Since I'm going to be gone tomorrow, here's the Tuesday game.

I think I'm caught up on administrative stuff. Let me know if there's something that needs my attention.

See you Wednesday.

MISLABELED NATIONALISTIC FOODS

2: The oldest known recipe for this fried bread dish flavored with sugar and cinnamon was written in Rome.

4: “Back” and “peameal” are other names for the type of bacon known in America by this nationality.

6: People of the nationality this pastry is named for call it “Viennese bread”; in Vienna the pastry is called Plundergeback.

8: This cake with a coconut-pecan frosting is named for an American baker with a national last name.

10: This dish of pancake batter fried in an iron topped with strawberries and whipped cream was introduced at Seattle's Expo 62.

MATHEMATICIANS

3: I'll wager that you know this mathematician for whom the triangle of binomial coefficients is named.

6: His 1202 book "Liber Abaci" used a now-eponymous sequence of numbers to model the growth of a population of rabbits.

9: In "The Fractal Geometry of Nature," he observed that “clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones . . . and lightning does not travel in a straight line.”

12: This prolific mathematician was featured on a Swiss 10-franc note alongside the bridges of Königsberg.

15: The "Incompleteness Theorems" that bear this logician's name imply that, within any consistent formal axiomatic system of mathematics, there must be true statements that are unprovable.
