This was enough for me, as I able to guess the missing piece of #1.

Thanks for the salt (which, ironically, could come in handy IRL for the puzzle's theme).

I really can't figure out the 3 spheres - it is a great piece of art by M.C. Escher, but it doesn't fit the theme at all...

9 hours to get this done - I guess Tanga starts the clock when you first look at it and not at your first attempt. I looked at it last night and then decided I needed sleep more than Tanga points...

Regarding the three spheres:

Here's some salt for tonight's puzzle, along with a bit of insight into how *my* brain works...

For the first clue, I immediately saw

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Lo Salt Oscal


That isn't correct, but is similar to what needs to be done.

Thanks Tami! It still took a bit of thinking, but this led me to the answers. Until I read this, I was lost.

No problem.

I'm just wondering now if Oscal comes in a Lo-Salt formula. And it'll be stuck in my head until I find out.

Oh, and the wrong path I took (in case you are tempted to go there, too):

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I got Carmen right away, but kept trying to change it into Miranda. And I also saw Fidel right away, so was trying to change that into some form of Castro, but there weren't quite enough letters.


Don't make that mistake; it isn't necessary.

The answers are 'hidden in plain sight'. Ignore the spaces, read the letters, and find the answers within.

I will just have to miss this one. My time is running out. I started too late. And still am not close enough to getting the final answer.

I noticed that, too, but it hasn't led me anywhere yet. Also:

The first line uses only 15 unique letters.
