Re: 1603: "Flashlights"

I recently upgraded my front bike light from "vaguely know there's a cyclist there" to "this path is daylight now". Real bright, though I presume this is an Americanism, as I would use the phrase "Real ly bright" I caught that too. I hope it's not an Americanism. I don...

Re: Minority Report (tv)

I've been watching it. I actually like to watch a lot of pilots just in the slim chance that the show turn out to be interesting. So far this one is just good enough to keep watching, but just barely. Part of the problem is that I have three shows that were pilots this season on my DVR that feel the...

Re: 1434: "Where Do Birds Go"

I'm currently reading A Dance With Dragons, so the title makes me think of "Where do whores go"

Re: Things you remember watching but can't remember the name

Was it actually Richard Dean Anderson in a mustache? Sounds like the series "Legend" from the 90's.

Re: German Court Rules Religious Circumcision An Assault On

Different people will argue about different weightings. I think a much better law (in the US) than outright banning it would be laws requiring some sort of mandatory education for something that is mostly cosmetic but low risk, which is what I would probably categorize ear-piercings and circumcisio...

Re: German Court Rules Religious Circumcision An Assault On

Problem 1: A part of my body that I used to have is no longer there. Foreskin restoration does not solve problem 1, it's a workaround (to use CS-ey words) that doesn't actually fix the underlying problem. How is problem 1 even a problem? Edit: wisdom teeth, appendix, umbilical cord... Shall I use t...

No, I believe Jave was saying ... what a "circular" argument. :D

Re: New York Mayor wants to ban fountain sodas over 16oz

Refilling is a cost. If you reduced the max amount to 1 ml with infinite refills it would be quite a large cost. You might consider the number of refills with 16oz max small enough, but it isn't 0 cost. Let me adjust that to ALMOST, 0 cost. Sorry for the confusion. I guess you are specifcally conce...

Re: Gay teen faces expulsion for defense via stungun

I tried to read the links given in the thread, but maybe I missed some of the details. But it still seems that there is a lack of specifics and a lot of speculation. So please correct me where I goof up the facts as I continue to speculate wildly. I viewed this issue by separating the concept of bul...

Re: Things you remember watching but can't remember the name

SilverHawks the description was spot on Ok, so I have this show that's been bugging me for years, but it was on when I was 5, so my memory might not be the best. This show was animated, and must have aired on weekends on Australian TV (Probably on Agro. So, probably not an Australian show). I distin...

Wow! Something about Puzzle 13 just wasn't clicking with me. Thanks. Got them all now.

By the way, I believe "TSENG" should be "TSEGN"

Re: Another meta-puzzle: harder, better, faster, stronger

Finished! I got everything but Puzzle 7 #1 and Puzzle 13. For 7-1 I know what letters to use, but am still stumped by the clue. I never had any leads for 13, but got the answer while working the final puzzle. Any clues for these? Another great puzzle, thanks. Now I should stop wasting time at work.

Re: Another meta-puzzle: harder, better, faster, stronger

Okay, I am still working on puzzles 3, 6, 7, 10 and 13. In puzzle 6: I came up with something that seems to be a five word phrase or clue. But the last word makes no sense. I thought it was a three letter acronym. Oh wow! As I was writing this, I realized something improtant. I was discarding some l...

Re: Another meta-puzzle: harder, better, faster, stronger

bittyx, puzzle 5, I haven't gotten this one yet but: My take was "If a block contained it , it was removed." I had a block with the letters IT, which I then removed. Mine still gets fouled up later on. I had 31 letters after step 7. puzzle 8: You are definitely on the right track. Maybe do...

Re: Another meta-puzzle: harder, better, faster, stronger

I love puzzles that have few or no rules; where defining the parameters of the problem is as important as the solution. It reminds me of playing Myst in a strange way. I found the first meta-puzzle thouroughly satisfying. The final puzzle was very clever. On this new puzzle, I am fairly certain I ha...

Re: Another meta-puzzle: harder, better, faster, stronger

I loved the first meta-puzzle. This one is definitely harder. I may need some hints. For puzzle 5, let me make sure I am on the right track... I started off with a string of 53 characters in step 1. After step 3, I am left with a string of 36 charcters. I assumed spaces were ignored and that "1...

hints only?

I've made a lot of progress on this thing and have enjoyed it a lot so far. I know that the Collective has solved it already, but I don't want to see the answers just yet. Maybe some subtle hints to get me unstuck. One that has driven me crazy is in (3,5)... There is a six letter word on the bottom ...
