Question

Inspired by Woon but with my own recipe ;)

Sudden death of a famous mathematician has given a lot of headache to the investors that were hoping to benefit from Professor’s brilliant mind. His latest work was nowhere to be found. However his coworkers knew that the Professor spent most of his time in his office so they were convinced that the algorithm that he constructed was there... but where??

The Professor’s office was thoroughly searched but his work was nowhere to be found. They knew that the Professor enjoyed solving and constructing riddles but all off them were a dead end!

Since the Professor was a mathematician the only odd thing in his office was this poster and there was something odd written on it as well!

Did he hide it under the bed?

Where did you get that?

:)

Well he was spending a lot of time in his office, but I didn't even think about that.

Thanks for posting ;)

I already placed a hint in my signature that it has nothing to do with math! So... no counting no adding...

I removed the letters found in "snail anatomy" from "ANTIINSTITUTIONAL DISESTABLISHMENT" and got "U THE BED".

Doh!

It's not complicated to get to the solution, think outside the box!

I'm the person who makes puzzles that make people think inside the box! I think I've gotten into the box and somehow locked it from the outside! I can't get out!

...maybe a cup of coffee...

Wow... :lol: The funniest thing happens with my riddles. People always find something that fits without me even trying to make it that way!

Did he give it to his son, Al, in NY?

No... ;) I think I get it!

the "treasure" is in the office!

I'm not even gonna ask how did you get that

the professor was a hippy rebel, with a penchant for garlic stewed snails
:)

Perhaps... I didn't get into his character that much?! :lol:

I am not sure about WHERE this algorithm could be, but

The ratio of the curve of a snail's shell is Phi.

Could that at least be a start?

don't ask me how I got this but...
was the treasure hidden under the building?

No I already said it and it's no problem to repeat it again

- the treasure is hidden in the office!

:)

In the basement?

No...

office

;)

OUTSIDE OF A BOX!!!!

It's not complicated to get to the solution, think outside the box!

Haha... no... :lol: but thanks I had a good laugh ;)

Interesting... but I already said it and it's no problem to repeat it again

- no math!

The Professor liked simplicity and things hidden in plane sight!

PHI is 1.618, for all interested. btw, does the location of the snails on the words mean anything? And also, did you draw the snail?

Nah...

it's just a random snail that I've found. This one was the prettiest

;)

haha yeh dude thats cool

disestablishmentarialism as opposed to antiinstitutional disestablishment

really hope i spelt them right...:P

You know that it does not. :)

When you find the answer it's not gonna be just a light bulb... it's gonna be fireworks!

Spoiler for ...:

Simplicity!
