One more for those of you with a quizzical disposition. After this you have all earned a rest for a few days. Enjoy!
Domicile03, Sus
We should take a moment, before we rush into the conclusion of our story, to talk a bit about Sus. She is truly a remarkable pig. Not only is she an astronomer, but she’s an astronomer with an artistic vision of the universe. There is not a night that goes by that she does not imagine the galaxies she viewing as cosmic paint brushes, drawing a vision of eternal beauty across the skies. For example, here is what she saw last night.

Domicile03, Baby Bear’s Task
I like children, really I do. Even precocious children like Baby bear. But after the nth question of, “Whatchya doin’, Aunt Erin?” I’d had quite enough, thank you.

“Baby bear,” I said, “I need you to do me a favor. I’ve got three switches on the first floor of my house that turn on three light in three different rooms upstairs. I’ve never managed to figure out which switch turns on which bulb, so I need you to figure it out for me. …Continue reading this article…

Hardboiled, The End of the Journey

Ray’s Final Challenge

“Okay Sam,” I said as we hiked across the island to Guin’s house, “how can you throw a ball as hard as you can and have it come back to you without bouncing off anything, attaching anything to it, or having someone catch it and throw it back?”


Sam pondered that for a while as we walked …Continue reading this article…

September 2009, by Pete | 39 Comments – latest by frankie

Our work is nearly done for the day. All that’s left is question 54, which also includes question 54.5. Read on, and all will make sense….

Domicile03, Guin’s Favorite
When the mice got here they were pretty excited by the variety of fauna on the islands, like so many people are. They were completely overlooking the beauty of the rocks themselves of course, but I can forgive that. To be honest, even I have my favorite animal here. And, as expected, Ray, Sam, and Nick each picked a favorite animal too.

The animals we picked, in order of increasing size, were: the frigatebird, the land iguana, the seal, and the tortoise.

Ray’s favorite animal is smaller than Nick’s. …Continue reading this article…

Domicile03, Sus’s Observation
Sus, peering through her high-powered microscope, saw a beam of white light shooting straight at her from the heavens. It did not curve, it did not bend, but shot unerringly toward her the lens of her microscope. Hurriedly, she began assembling some items she might need when it arrived.
 Beam of Light

QUESTION: In which of the three images depicting Rod, Grant, and Blaise’s path are the horizontal lines actually parallel?
