1:04 AM
@AncientSwordRage Hmm, makes me think of QUEEN ANT but also no leads
1:15 AM
@oAlt trinitrotoluene is a molecular, also known as TNT
(assuming that's a typo)
It's certainly not a molecular :p
Anyway yes it could be a bit promising
@oAlt You're as bad as bobble :-p
You'll make my autocorrect cry
1:24 AM
C4 reworded, which will thus serve as a hint: A carbohydrate in lamb flock leader (female)? (5,3)
1:37 AM
I was going to say LUPIN PEA but that's a stretchy stretch
2:08 AM
@AncientSwordRage bobble is good :'(
@bobble ∴ oAlt is good
SHEEP DOG comes to mind but no wordplay
The first word is definitely SUGAR
2:40 AM
@bobble in case it was unclear, I do think bobble is good
@msh210 Ooh, a second modification :0
what on earth can be both a wolf pack leader and a lamb flock leader? a wolf in sheep's clothing?
Hahah ikr
@Jafe I was thinking the same thing
And "in a wolf" was said to make the wordplay worse... I still don't know how to make sense of that yet
2:52 AM
Is there something with BEET -T for BEE?
3:03 AM
lamb flock leader is clearly the MOMMA EWE

Q: 5x5 binary grid with every 2x2 sub-grid occuring once

Dmitry KamenetskyCan you paint a $5 \times 5$ grid in two colors, such that each of the $2 \times 2$ possible sub-grids ($2^4 = 16$ combinations) occurs exactly once in the grid?

5:25 AM
Q: Here's the song, now tell me the title!

FeryllYou ever have it happen where you know how a song goes, but you forget its title? I've heard you guys are good at figuring stuff out for free, so I'll just drop a sample here and let you guys do your thing. Just FYI, middle C is C. Call me crazy but I do think I remember its word sum was 80, if ...

Q: How many animals?

Mritunjay KumarOne rabbit saw 6 elephants while going towards River. Every elephant saw 2 monkeys are going towards the river. Every monkey holds one tortoise in its hands. How many animals are going towards the river?

question: is something like "At first, big-time" allowed to stand for both B and BT? i'm not confident about this hyphenated stuff
@oAlt it wouldn't anger me if I found out that have been the answer
12:12 PM
Q: what number should replace the question mark in hexagon diagram?

Farhan KhanI'm trying to solve this problem of a book. But cant seem to understand how does this work. How we got 12 in the center and what should be the missing number.

Q: Find out the odd one in the diagram

Farhan KhanI'm solving puzzle from the book super excellent and intellegent test. Im stuck on these. Someone said answer should be 983. But how? Can anyone tell me the right answer. thanks.

3:28 PM
I just finished making the "core" of a puzzle. All I need now is the story surrounding it
*write the story
3:45 PM
Is there a tag for burr puzzles and other 3D assembly puzzles?
4:07 PM
The most recent question posted, I made a suggested edit because does not quite fit
There is no hard logic involved
Q: Case of Punctured Tyre

Mritunjay KumarA man drove his Innova car all the way from Shimla to Delhi only to discover at the end of the trip that he had a punctured tyre from the very start. Yet his Innova car was not at all affected by it? How is this possible? (Source: - https://www.hitbullseye.com/)

Is the answer posted to your question complete?
Because even after that I haven't fully understood what went on
4:23 PM
Not 100%. There's a final image with color rather than zoomed out text "ascii art". But they obv got the correct breed. Re your last statement: That's probably because I clued this whole thing horribly. If you're confused as to how the text to image works. The prime factorization of the length is 181x181, so those are the dimensions of the image (common trick). Then just fill in line by line (as i said colors arent correct yet)

One of your comments says: *First 2 bits are red, then green then blue. Keep in mind 00=0, 11=255*
How can just two bits represent 255, I don't understand.
@KabirKanhaArora Seems like you repeat the bits 4 times, so 01 expands to 00001111
I meant this is how you would convert the 2 respective bits to a byte in the standard 32-bit int argb model, since that's probably what you're going to use when creating the output image
Or maybe 01010101
so 00 = 0, 11 = "max illumination", and so on.
6:00 PM
Well, I guess when it's possible, I'd love to see a full solve, maybe if you made one, still feel I want some gaps in my understanding plugged
I can share a pastebin to some code if that's what you're looking for
6:15 PM
That might help, but I also couldn't figure out things like what the lines under the boxes meant, why there were Xs in G and B, why a smaller image made the puzzle easier... So actually I wanted to know the full thought process end-to-end, but that may be too much to ask :)
6:33 PM
Q: Where is Rodney Waddler?

StivMy friend Rodney Waddler is currently travelling around Europe. Over the course of eight days, he intends to visit eight different European capital cities - one each day. On Day 1, Rodney sent me the itinerary for his trip, along with a photo of him standing on the aeroplane stairs before boardin...
