To reiterate, the media is reasonably well known, so if something has barely any views on YouTube, for example, it's probably not the intended answer. Related to that, when I made them, the aim was that they would be answered without using a computer. Of course, if you don't know the media that is not possible, but some of these become easy by just searching things like "films with X in title" which in my view is a sort of cheap way to find the answer. So just a request to try not to use a computer to solve them. I think they are more enjoyable and satisfying that way.

A few comments on this set. 1 and 3 barely count as an expression, but I'll keep them. 2 is probably the hardest one out of any previous questions I've asked. It's a bit of stretch but maybe someone can figure it out. 7 is probably the least known thing.

A clue for 2 is that

You read it in a specific way to pronounce the answer, without the word "gravity"

  • $\begingroup$ Good effort. Most of these are correct. 7 is an alternative answer probably, but it is not what I meant. The reasoning makes sense though. For 2 I also meant something different. I labelled it as "x" for a reason, I will say... $\endgroup$ – user110503 Jul 5 at 16:38

    $\begingroup$ Not a bad guess, but not what I was thinking. It is something specifically to do with my choice of rot13(tngr) itself. $\endgroup$ – user110503 Jul 6 at 8:23
