  1. Gotta think ^^ that's ^^ it. Nice reentry Wilson.
  2. Nice one as always monsieur 'puddn. plasmid steered me in the right direction with his interpretation of the first two lines. Must say I especially appreciate the double entendres in the second stanza. Very nice!
  3. Don't know if this is still relevant but my first two thoughts when looking at this mix of seemingly unrelated characters is their keyboard position or the ascii representation of the characters; and then some kind of manipulation of one of those relative to the 81 or 08/01 clue. Good luck.
  4. Had originally thought And another observation re site traffic: Think there is less spit balling of answers these days. Most now seem to reply only when highly confident of being correct. Tho guess that could be a consequence of lower traffic as previously there was more of a race to the solve. Still do think that adds to the feel of the lack of involvement.
  5. well hello good sir - great to see you here
  6. No fooling you three, y'all were all over this one. MM recognizing the slip fall right off, the good Captain doing the heavy lifting, and bn wrapping up the actual question which may have been apparent to you all just vaguely asked for in the OP. Cheers
  7. You and I each have a coin, select its orientation (heads or tails), and reveal to each other simultaneously. If both are heads, you win a dollar. If both are tails, you win a quarter. But if both are different, I win fifty cents. Fair enough?
  8. an attempt at an explanation by example
  9. Been extremely interested in this one plasmid my friend, and for the longest time thought the above post must be a mistake. Now think am on to you. Just need to figure out how to simply explain the solution if indeed my most recent process pans out. Just wanted to let you know am still on the case. Know it can be frustrating when a thread goes on without response, especially when it's a fine puzzle such as this one. I'll be back...
  10. or maybe yeah, so one of those three (not the first though)
  11. zero style points (for this guess, for now...)
  12. another seven and I think an example of six? still working on five...
  13. yeah, think I agree with that statement, dealer.
  14. I think I see the pattern here and am encouraged by the beauty of binary symmetry so here goes:
  15. @aiemdao - Yes, nice solve indeed Aiem. Well done. @bonanova - thanks.
  16. hey bn - Thanks for getting this one started. You are correct in all you say above including your initial summary of the problem. Have edited the OP to include that explanation. I assure you there is a scheme in which one can guarantee finding seven heavy coins. Perhaps start off by finding one guaranteed heavy coin in two uses of a balance scale. Or not. I have no doubt you or others here will discover the method for finding seven heavy dimes.
  17. You are shown a pile of dimes all of which have one of two distinct weights differing by a small amount not detectable by feel. Forty eight dimes are separated from this pile and you are told of these forty eight, light ones are a dime a dozen (literally - i.e. 44 heavy dimes and 4 light dimes). Using a balance scale twice, find seven heavy dimes. EDIT: for clarification
