  1. What am I ?

    Possibly ... ?
  2. Flocks of ducks

    Looks like
  3. The halfway glass

    You're right. I botched it. rodomac's wordless pics were in my mind, but they never made it to the keyboard.
  4. Truth in packaging

    Three boxes are all labeled incorrectly, and you must get the labels right. The labels on the boxes read as follows: [box 1] nails [box 2] screws [box 3] nails and screws To gain the information you need to move the labels to the correct boxes, you may remove a single item from one of the boxes. You may not look into the boxes, nor pick them up and shake them, etc. Can this be done? If so, how? If not, why not? [Edit to add solution.] [Edit again to explain.]
  5. Proof that there exist only one answer

    Maybe, maybe not.
  6. Determining an ellipse given a foci

    I, as well, stand by my answer. Caveat:
  7. Segment a segment

    To clarify. You don't have any of these abilities: Make a line segment of equal length to another segment, or equivalently make equally-spaced pairs of points. (You don't have a pair of dividers.) Make a line segment that is parallel to another line (segment). Make an arc. (You don't have a compass.) But you do have the equivalent of a straight-edge.
  8. Russian Roulette

    Don't see how it matters, unless ...
  9. Westworld Mafia

    Thanks to araver for the game. With a full (original) compliment of players the game would have unfolded very differently, even with a lucky lynch.
  10. Westworld Mafia

    I'm headed to bed (US EDT). I'll read my obit when I wake up. I hope something kind is said ... I'm wondering ... has a player ever been BOTH of the first two kills before? Poor Aura
  11. Westworld Mafia

    I'm in. I'm changing my block now. (said the soldier willing to die for the cause.)
  12. Westworld Mafia

    You mean which Goodie? I didn't. But if the list of names were alphabetized I'd be at the tail end. Thus I'm a non factor at this point.
  13. Westworld Mafia

    So ... if Dolores or Hector is still around ... then ... grab the gun and get it done? Gav and I have claimed goodie roles. I don't know what (1 of 2 roles) Nana has claimed. Flame and plas: just need one of you to claim and it's done. Wow.

  15. Westworld Mafia

    Well other than the reference to my color, it's so early in the game I don't know what else to allude to. That said, there are so many goodies, it seems likely one of us will swing tomorrow morning. Sad.

    Agree Phil should post. Also the other analyses are good reading; I'd like to see more. As for myself: I like my color. 1. Gavinksong - voting for Flamebirde2. Flamebirde - voting for bonanova3. Nana77 - voting for plasmid4. plasmid - voting for phil5. phil18826. bonanova - voting for phil

    BTW I'm here, stumbling around in the dark ... Hi y'all.
  18. Chess Board Puzzle

    And rotated?
  19. A gambling problem

    What is his initial bet (stake)? Did you mean to say "Every time he wins, he raises his stake by 1/4 of his bankroll"?
