Question 51 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

23rd September 2009 by Pete

MOO is still wide awake in the USA (especially as we didn’t get to go to the party!) so for those of you who aren’t tucked up in bed:

Domicile03, Erin’s Dilemma

If this were a reality show, I’d be in a closet talking to a camera right now. I’ve always lived alone because it makes it so much easier to deal with certain… quirks I have. For example, I became a mycologist because I see mushrooms everywhere. That doesn’t mean I’m simply good at spotting mushrooms, but that I see mushrooms in places where no mushroom has a right to be. I wish I had some way of showing you the world through my eyes.

 Erin's Dilemma

QUESTION: Moo scientists have invented a camera that reproduces Erin’s phantom-mushroom vision! To help us calibrate the equipment correctly, we need to know how many mushrooms you see in the above scene.

That’s it for today. Same time tomorrow?
