  1. "5) The Chilean, who is not next door but one to the Belgian" I had the opposite understanding If the Chilean were pitch 5, the Belgian could not be pitches 4 or 6 because those would be next door. The Belgian could be 3 or 7 if that was meant to read one to the right/left of the Belgian.
  2. I think the inclusion of the word "who" indicates it applies to the American. Can't be sure without clarification though.
  3. lol. I figured the weights were pretty close. But I made the mistake of asking Google. What are the odds of those riddles being posted at the same time? Thanks for the indirect hint fb.
  4. You have Marie as finding 16. Clue 6 says 16 were found by a man. I assume Marie is a woman. Only time the clues seem to specify man or woman... This appears to be unsolvable with that constraint though...
  5. This site is filled with intelligent people with different strengths. This one just happens to work well with how my brain is wired. Nice puzzle.
  6. Will upload diagram a bit later. Can pretty much fill it out from the description. Venn diagram
  7. Alright! I think the important thing is that the overhang is on both sides. Not just one side with the next row sticking out from the first.
  8. Well plainglazed, since you asked for it... No confidence Loving all the baseball references I'm seeing though. I see the struggle to break .500 is over.
  9. Can you give an example of a one word policy? Assuming a male politician from the phrasing "his policies". Any one here more politically inclined?
  10. fb- Joe is trying to sell you his share. You are paying him the $200... if you accept his offer. A question
  11. What are you trying to do? Is there any other information or directions?
  12. Ok. That's fair. I think all the assumptions I've seen are fairly safe ones though. Maybe less safe if it were written today. The divorce one would be a rather cruel trick if applied that way. I don't usually see this kind of puzzle written with a trick like that.
  13. I got the outfield and 2B without assuming children have married fathers. The rest seem to depend on that assumption. I've seen a couple sites post this with those assumptions stated with the original problem. I found the sports illustrated version but it sounds like the writer had gotten it elsewhere as he mentioned he hadn't solved it yet. So that is not the original source. It looks like the only purpose of mentioning the residence is to establish that a given player does not play a given position. Sounds more interesting than just saying "Adams is not the catcher." or "Jones is not the third baseman."
