Question

Posted · Report post

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!

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...

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

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

Doh!

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!

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?

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?
