Question 12 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the Magic Number!”

4th September 2009 by Lisa

Here we go. It’s the last question of the week. Remember, we’re choosing our winner based on lucky draw. Take your time, submit the right answer and you may win. Here goes …

The Third Zone: Three Paths

A crossroads, decisions to be made. A direction to choose. Each of us reach many such crossroads in our lives, but Rod, Grant, and Blaise had come to a crossroads… in the Third Zone.

By now all three have realized that the city streets they walk are not the same streets they are used to. Grant wishes he’d taken Atlas’s map. Blaise wishes she’d taken a peak at Index’s books. Rod wishes he’d been able to keep up with TAG. But it is too late for that now. They are on their own for the moment and must make their choice. The street signs here do not contain names, but partial images. Hauntingly familiar glimpses into well known cultural icons. All three navigate now by instinct and make their turns based upon subconscious drives and so they aren’t even aware that they’ve just crossed an important point on their journey… in the Third Zone.

Rod turns down a street bearing this sign :

Grant veers onto a street with this sign:

Grant's Street Sign

Blaise opts to traverse a street with this sign:

Blaise's Street Sign

Q: What streets are Rod, Grant, and Blaise walking on? Each street is named after the corporate or product logo on the sign.

That’s it for this week. Put the right answer in the comments before Sunday night and you could win a set of MOO MiniCards and a year of Flickr pro. We’ll announce all winners on Monday. Good Luck.

PS.Have a relaxing Labour Day Weekend (for those of you in N. America) and don’t forget postcards are 20% off this weekend.

    rod is on a street related to adobe acrobat. grant found starbucks. blaise made it to something related to HBO. my difficulty now is what on earth atlas has to do with starbucks, why the only “index books” i could find relates to rod more than blaise, and which TAG you speak of.

    or maybe i’m overthinking things.
