Re: "Everyone needs a bosom for a pillow" puzzle

I guess the puzzle wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be. However, it was certainly pleasing to think about (especially at the start to Valentine's Day).

Re: "Everyone needs a bosom for a pillow" puzzle

@TaintedDeity

Yes but that's where the 'number of breasts is equal to the number of people' condition comes in.

Re: "Everyone needs a bosom for a pillow" puzzle

Yes, it is always possible. Except when there is only one person with breasts. The condition implies you have the same number of two-boobed people as no-boobed people. Just line up all the ones with boobs in a big circle, and let each person lie on the boob of the person to the left. Once this is do...

Re: "Everyone needs a bosom for a pillow" puzzle

Can a pair of people rest their heads on each other's breasts? I assume yes, since they could in real life. In that case yes it is certainly 'possible'. Not sure yet the precise conditions you need.

e.g. 1 with two breasts, 1 with 1 breast, 1 with no breast

Re: 0852: "Consecutive Vowels"

Could someone please tell us how 'voyeur' was initially spelt before he corrected the error? I am interested to know, it's probably a code or something.

Re: "Hell" Discussion

It would be hell to play Ski Free, and for no reason a big robot comes out of nowhere and gobbles you up partway down the mountain.

Re: "Brain Worms" Discussion

Surely you only have the driving dreams if you actually drive in real life? But the teeth falling out dream is by far the most recurring and vivid dream I have, I had no idea it was a common dream! It is so common for me that if I ever feel my teeth get wobbly in a dream then I'm like 'Uh oh, here w...

Re: "SkiFree" Discussion

Maaaaann, I even tried shimmying up the slope instead of skiing down, but there's another robot (I always thought they were robots when I was little and I still do) way up the slope.

Re: A short sequence of numbers

Dude the question isn't flawed. Clearly the guy knows some simple and clever method which you have to spot and use to determine the next number. Obviously there are infinitely many solutions but you don't have to order them by simplicity because if you find the right one, it should be obvious that i...

Re: "Can't Sleep" Discussion

So I read this comic, and an hour later a friend (who doesn't read XKCD) popped round and asked me why for his RSA algorithm project his values keep coming out negative when above 2^31.

No freakin' way. I always thought when people said 'get out of my head Randall' they were kidding around. But just a minute ago I was thinking 'What the heck does first/second/third base actually mean? I mean I see people on TV talk about it, but no one ever mentions it in real life. Is it an Americ...
