Is the lady in a dress from a certain country where the wet stuff falls on the flat part?


Can I send GM to someone thats done it already to see what I got wrong?

for the hard 1ww:

salty for the dense, but i'm too dense to make sense of it
Spoiler (click to reveal)
I got the quoted words, followed the primes, connected the dots, and got gibberish from the letters. yescoprt doesn't anagram to anything, y and e were gone through twice, but yescoprtye doesn't anagram to anything either. taking the other letters that were not struck through... hawbnfq doesn't anagram to anything either.


any help? did i miss something?

From the geek that brought you "fountain-mountain-hairy-guy" ...



You've cursed my name (even though you didn't know it until now) and grabbed your throbbing head in frustration. So here are the answers and explanations to my 12/8 Hypercross, "I'm Bored." Note that, by popular demand (i.e. mobs with torches), I uploaded easier clues after all the bonus points were gone. I've included a description of the original clues for those of you who saw them.

Don't hate me. I was just trying to entertain you.

Spoiler (click to reveal)

Theme: family games
Method: phonetic (more or less) rebuses

sari (Indian garment) = Sorry!
skip + Bo (from "Dukes of Hazzard") = SkipBo
back + ham + Ann (Landers) = backgammon (old version: back of a card)
"baa" + gull = Boggle (old version: a bog)
scarab + bull = Scrabble
Trevi (fountain) + alp + hirsute (or hair suit) = Trivial Pursuit
bat + L + ship + Battleship (old version: Chicago's L train)
crib + beige = cribbage
canned ("you're fired") + eland = Candyland (old version: did not have text)
Dom (DeLuise) + in nose = dominoes
(grocery) checkers = checkers
crane + knee + M = Cranium (old version: Auntie Em)
twister (tornado) = Twister
opera + shin = Operation (old version: different opera scene)
Cher + ades = charades (old version: glasses instead of pitchers)



"fountain-mountain-hairy-guy" (aka FMHG) will never replace "salt" but it was fun while it lasted.

I got the hard one, but I am befuddled as to the easy one (with the Clintons), even considering all the salt already posted. Help!

DECEMBER 14th (AM)

I am nowhere on the Hard one (Optimus/Spongebob).

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I see the two sequences.

I see the five numbers missing from the sequences.

I've tried TNing them, their place in line, etc. I get nothing approaching words. And nothing whatsoever on the purple numbers.


Everyone seems to be guessing it pretty easy, but even my guesses aren't doing it.

WOE IS ME

Find the missing numbers from the two groups:
the first group is prime numbers
the second group is squared numbers
Spoiler (click to reveal)
So the first missing number from the first group is 3
the first missing number from the second group is 4
Spoiler (click to reveal)
There are five missing numbers all together
Three X Four X X
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Now apply the "tanga" numbers to each of the words...
1 = first letter of "three"
Spoiler (click to reveal)
7 = 7th letter of X
Spoiler (click to reveal)
2 - 2nd letter of "four"
Spoiler (click to reveal)
T-O---

Yeah, but the clue is 1-7-2-7-1. I got the answer by guessing, but this puzzle is broken unless someone can show me different.

What do you mean by "Three X Four X X"?

Not computing for me.

The "X"s are for you to figure out - which primes and squares haven't I filled in? - fill in the appropriate numbers (spelled out) and apply the tanga numbers...

I guess that detailed GM I just sent you wasn't necessary!
Glad you got it without it!laugh

Easy Puzzle Salt

pi = 3.14159
phi = 1.61803
e = 2.71828[o]

I tried truncating to get
3 1 2
C A B

But I never should have truncated

[o] Tanga numbers are NOT involved in this puzzle
