Damn, that's what I get for taking Spanish instead of French. Who knew that was a word (certainly not Alta Vista's Babelfish).

and what in the world can you do with that.

Well in the world, many things, but perhaps not here in the states. Someone from Montreal would certainly be able to tell you.

I can't find any tool to translate this. What did you use, or did you "just know"?

Because the three letter word is a common one in crossword puzzles due to the popular letters it uses.

Just so people know, the fourth step rests on spotting a word that might be easier to see...

Incidentally, and this has nothing to do with the puzzle, but there is an element 175, called Unseptpentium with atomic symbol Usp, at least until someone provably creates some of it and gets to name it something else.

3. Look to the end for a seven letter word.


Man, that is exactly what I needed. Thanks!

damn you accents...
threw me off for a while

Spoiler (click to reveal)
you have to arrange the items in an order that makes sense... considering this is tanga...
then take the last letter to get a word
then apply the number at the top
then apply the key that has the flags.
im not sure if translators will give you anything without the accents but its worth a try. i knew it cuz i took french.

the correct word to search would be été

when I wrote down the words in a column, in notepad, the word jumped out at me: I guess I find patterns even when I'm not supposed to.

Now, applying it to 175 instead of going for the periodic table is a different story. The number was too high for a normal, stable periodic table.

It took you 8 minutes and 35 seconds.
You are the 8th fastest Tanga member to solve this puzzle.
You were the 14th Tanga member to solve this puzzle.

Tonight's was pretty easy, at least for me. It's nice to get one now and then without hints or taking three times as long as everyone else. Anyone having trouble?

I've been thinkin about "come in" for a while now but nothing seems to click. Maybe booze and Tanga don't mix?
