I figure “If red ran thy troubled waters?” is a cryptic clue of sorts and whatever it was would end up being a book of the Bible and would work in conjunction with “5:10” to give a chapter and verse. But I’m horrible at cryptics. “If red ran” = pink? Troubled “waters” = rawest? Although […]

From the Food Museum’s Pizza Gallery, entitled “Pizza Sumo” by John Gampert:
This week’s nonoriddle, entitled “Car Type“, is up. No one submitted a fastest time for last week’s riddle, perhaps due to its (now fixed) problem. However, I do have one report that someone solved it in under three minutes. I guess he’s been making good use of Picross DS.
There’s a brief but positive review of nonoriddles over at Puzzlinks, a blog that lives up to its name. Defintely a confidence booster, but I’m really just glad that someone enjoys them.
There’s a small cliche in science fiction that I absolutely cannot stand. It is the whole “Let’s replace a character with a duplicate and see if anyone notices” – basically a subset of the evil twin idea.

A little while later, y2kbozo sent me a zip file with newspaper clippings, invites, and even a clue from the first four Games. I’ve put all that was sent up in the gallery and some samples below. An […]
Salvador Dali on What’s My Line?. These nine minutes cracked me up more than ninety minutes of today’s “comedy” films.
One thing about writing in the blogosphere is the small amount of feedback there tends to be. In many a case, it’s similar to giving a speech to a large box that may or may not be filled with people who are listening. Schrödinger’s audience, essentially. Today, surprisingly and quite by accident, I found that […]
This week’s nonoriddle, entitled/hinted as “Jade-like Tint”, is available to solve. Last week’s fastest times were 8 minutes 10 seconds by wjacobp and 11 minutes 12 seconds by fastzap, out of ten visitors.
