QR–Cure–Quizzing Realm–472 [NSFW/NSFL]

A connect, after quite some time.

b. Losing consciousness for a short span of time.


c. Focus on the profession, please.

d. The emotion matters

Connect these to a single person. Chances are that you won’t need a hint, but if you do, here’s an event:


You may also consider a number of this event’s namesakes as hints.

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!


Three replies from two people, and both guys are correct! The connect is indeed St Valentine, whose day is coming up soon. Valentine is the patron saint of not only love but plague, against fainting, beekeeping, epilepsy and affianced couples, amongst other things. The photo is one of the several Valentine’s Day massacres that have taken place over the centuries.


  1. Al Capone. Loved the Valentine theme.

  2. Second attempt after a bit of nudging from Arka:

    St Valentine. St Valentine is the patron saint of plague, love, epilepsy, beekeeping and the Valentine's Day Massacre. A very versatile saint!

  3. Alfred Hitchcock... Maybe :)

  4. Alfred Hitchcock... (The anonymous comment is also mine :))
