A man was trying to convince an acquaintance that one individual can make a lasting impression on others. After a rather heated discussion his friend continued to doubt.

To prove his point, the first man declared that he would introduce a new word into the English language. The night he chalked on walls and pavements throughout Dublin, Ireland four letters which he had chosen from random from the alphabet.

The next morning people saw this unusual word and were baffled at it. They were asking one another what it meant.

It was not long until the newspapers began writing about it and the strange sounding word was only the lips of everyone.

Thus the term/word QUIZ was incorporated into the English language as a synonym for 'questioning.' He won his argument and left a lasting impression.

Adam's lasting impression on us was twofold: Condemnation and Consequence
