The Best of Cluenatic

Cluenatic is a mindsport that lets you decode a lot about a personality by unraveling four clues: a) the lateral clue b)the name clue c) the trivia clue and d) the fame clue. I formulated this game in 2004. I ran it as a daily game on yahoo groups. I set nearly 300 puzzles. A kind soul named Chandramouli pitched in with the rest. This blog will serve as a repository for some of the better cluenatic puzzles. To see the answer, just click the comment link.

LATERAL CLUE: Compact Disc = CD = In Roman Numerals notation that's 400.
NAME CLUE: 5788 = Element number 57 is Lanthanum which is notated as La. Element number 88 is Radium which is notated as Ra. So 5788 is LaRa.
TRIVIA CLUE: Dial @ = Dial @ is a clue that you have to use phone code to crack this one. The symbol @ notates at. In telephone code, at is 58.
FAME CLUE: Levi's = Levi's 501 is a prominent Jeans brand = 501.
PERSONALITY: What connects 400, LaRa, 58 and 501. Well it's Brian Lara, the cricketer par excellence. Lara's 400 not out is the highest test cricket score by any individual. He also has the distinction of scoring the highest number of runs in an over in a test match and that's 28 runs. Any cricket fan will tell you that Brian Charles Lara holds the world record for notching the highest individual score in first class cricket --> 501 runs.
