Some holiday fun: Puzzle supplementary material


(Note: This makes sense only after you've gone through the other puzzles.)

In case my friend got stuck, she could call me and ask for a hint. The original plan was that I would charge her a dare in order to get a hint, but it turns out I was too nice a guy to make her do any of the following things, but here's the list anyway:

  • Scream "I love you, Seattle!" at a street corner
  • Skip across the street
  • Walk sideways
  • Caress a lamppost
  • Dance
  • Sing the national anthem (any country) [typo fixed 7/6]
  • Ask for directions to where you are
  • Recite six lines from a favorite book or poem
  • Wave and shout hello to a traffic light

    Nice dares :o) [Shouldn’t it be ‘sing’ instead of ‘since’ in no. 6 ?]

    Seems to remind me of the "flash mob" things… <g>

    In the spirit of togetherness, how about helping the incompetent IE devs to patch their monopolistic crap, instead of these stupid puzzles?

    I agree qwerty, how dare he post something on this blog not directly related to technology. We all know that a well developed human is solely dedicated to one thing and one thing only, he really shouldn’t branch out and form those friendship things, nor should he have any interest outside of writing/debugging code 24/7, anything less is disgraceful. I am so glad you pointed out his failing in adding entries to his blog that satisfy you, as we all know that is the charter of this blog. I would suggest you revolt and start your own blog where you share your acerbic wit with the rest of the world, but then again it is always easier to wait for someone else to do something you don’t like and then harass them, or better yet blame them for something they are not even involved in, so carry on.

    Then can we move on to helping incompetent FireFox and Mozilla programmers with patching their own crap?

    Or hadn’t you heard that something Microsoft certainly *doesn’t* have a monopoly on are security holes.

    Being a developer is a *job*. Meaning that sometimes you go home and eat or sleep or do your own thing *whether or not* the rest of the world approves of your hobbies. This blog is one such hobby.

    If you don’t like it, go away. Satisfaction is NOT guaranteed.

    just another anonymous coward.
