Nonoriddle Tales

The latest 6×6 puzzle, “Tale Type” is up for solving. It turned out a little backwards: In most riddles containing references in the first and second person, the second person (“you”) refers to the reader and the first person (“I”) refers to the answer to the riddle, a la “I am something you sit on […]

The best Sci-Fi I never watch

I always seem to hear how Battlestar Galactica is the best show on TV right now. I only watched the mini-series and decided to go no further. Some friends and my dad wonder why I never got into it. The reason is because I knew that at some point this was going to happen:

Classy Nonoriddle

It’s been too long since “80s Rapper II was put up, but the answers are now available for it. david3x3x3 led the pack in solve times at forty-two seconds, followed by Jetzm at forty-five seconds, joefendel at fifty-six, and catherwood at a minute thirty-one.
