Finals •40 Dry Questions divided into 2 rounds. •1 Written round. •Round Robin. @kunalju

Written Round Stigler‘s Law In its strongest, simplest form, Stigler's Law tells us "No scientific discovery is named after its original discoverer." The term was coined by University of Chicago statistics professor Stephen Stigler @kunalju

1. • Alois A gets the credit for describing in the early 1900s the disease that bears his name, but the real credit for first discovering the illness probably goes to a Dr. Beljahow, who first linked plaque and dementia in 1887 but is now so forgotten that it‘s a daunting task to find records of his first name. @kunalju

2. • Mark Twain had once said: ―I came in with X in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go out with X. The Almighty has said, no doubt: 'Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together. @kunalju

3. • Sometimes entire regions are gotten wrong - the Europeans gave them that name because they were first introduced in the 10th century by Arabs from North Africa. What? @kunalju

4. • A particularly egregious example is the X Y, the region that lies beyond Neptune and includes Pluto and other dwarf planets. Frederick C. Leonard was the first to theorize its existence shortly after Clyde Tombaugh's discovery of Pluto in 1930, while its actual discoverers were David Jewitt and Jane Luu, who announced they had found the first definitive evidence for its existence in 1992. Either way, the credit really shouldn't go to Gerard K, who in 1951 said such a region could have existed in the early days of the solar system, but he was pretty certain that it wasn't around anymore. @kunalju

5. • The bacterium was first identified in 1885 by Theobald Smith, who went on to more lasting fame as America's first globally important epidemiologist. But when he discovered S, he was just an inspector at the newly formed Bureau of Animal Industry and only a couple years out of college, so it was his boss Daniel E. S who got the credit instead. And yes its named after a person and not an aquatic creature. @kunalju

6. • For instance, the 16th century English merchant Thomas Gresham lives on with Gresham's Law, which is an economic principle that is often simplified as ‗bad money drives out good.‘ But the law had already been described in 1519, the year of Gresham's birth, by a scientist born in Torun,Prussia, who went on to slightly greater fame with some mildly controversial theories before dying in 1543? @kunalju
