Out of curiousity I couldn't understand the hint "Look up" and "Look down"...explanation would be appreciated.

Another curious thought:?:

Was this also intended to be a riddle?

E = Energy
mc2 = m x c x c = MxCxC = MCC
So MCC = Energy or
MCC = Enthusiastic or
MCC = Entertainer or ???????:)

I doubt it. Apart from the nice connection with MCC, the reason c is the standard symbol for the speed of light (as in the famous Einstein formula) is that celeritas is the Latin for speed. As I mentioned earlier, my Latin helped me here.

I still cannot get over udosuk's favourite vegetable being celery!

If you follow my "NBA talk" thread, you'll know where I came from... In my (original) culture that particular vegetable is quite a popular food, and good to your health too... However I could understand why many people (especially Europeans and Americans) don't like it... A matter of taste I suppose...:)

"Look up" the dictionary, find the word "celebrity", and then "look down" to find the next item (I guess)...:idea:

Chalk me up as another celery eater.

As udosuk has stated, "look up" the word "celebrity" then "look down" two words to "celerity".

Looking at that section of the dictionary, with the words in the order they appear, you can derive this:

A certain celebrant, a celebrity, was eating celeriac with celerity or was it celery? whilst playing the celesta or it may have been the celeste celestial(ly).
