Is it not something with the nuclear core that goes through the earth all the way to China or whatever that is?

Basically yes. It refers to a nuclear meltdown where fuel could hypothetically burn through the Earth's crust and go all the way through to the other side (if it didn't hit the groundwater first).

That's the one!
(Sorry, that question just came into my head because it was on Celebrity Millionaire last year, and Johnny Vegas answered it by calling Paul Sinha as his phone-a-friend. Also I have a copy of the Testaments right beside my desk. :hap:)

Specifically, it was "play dice with the world", but I suppose this is close enough. :hap:

I'm surprised nobody has an inkling :mefiant:

Here's a hint: this person's Nobel Prize winning was not without controversy, as their work isn't what one might usually think of as "literature"

Nobody? Well, OK then, it was Bob Dylan.

I'm at a loss as to what kinds of questions to ask now… Maybe someone else could take over the season? I clearly haven't been doing a good job here :fou:
