Very neat problem. The answer is certainly unintuitive.

Never underestimate the Dude.

#333200 June 2013 ROM - Word-Riddle-of-the-Month - I'm not a siren

Bloodthirsty tongues, coated sweet
Welcoming mats on the floors
Lost in their dream, thus I greet
Then wake with a crack at the boards
Metal and wood, right and left
Crashing, they pray to take flight
Fully renounce plan of theft
For life or for death clinging tight

#328229 I'm not a zombie

Posted by plasmid on 12 February 2013 - 08:35 PM

Not any sort of pasta I'm afraid.
Although it does raise the question of whether a noodle that's a brain-eating zombie would be considered a cannibal.

Ask Harrison what's inside the armor -- he mentioned there's evidence inside.

And since it seems we start off at the crime scene, might as well look around it while we're here.

Well look at what the Yuli-tide has brung! The place is getting overrun with mafioso (whistles innocently).


Right on with the answer to this one.

I could also do with posting some more. For now, one that's not so tough as to scare away all but the seasoned veterans.

#326898 I'm not an overthrown king

Posted by plasmid on 01 January 2013 - 08:34 PM

Entombed alive yet I survived

To glimpse once again at the sun

But legs to ground are shackled down

Curtailing all efforts to run

In body lies a dozen knives

My crown's sure to split and to smell

A robber's spear flew by my ear

Be thankful this ended so well


Apologies in advance if I'm not able to log in every day to check answers

#320167 Seminar...

Posted by plasmid on 26 June 2012 - 04:28 AM

One article on the immunology of Grave's disease (that's probably too complex)
Another that talks about managing the disease in practice (that's probably also too complex)

Articles in journals are probably more specialized than what you're really after though. If you have a library that has copies of a good medical textbook like Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, or any other Internal Medicine textbook, I think that would be your best bet.
