Bunnyween Shotgun

Preparing for the trip to Texas on Sunday hasn’t left much time for surfing.

  • Dungeon Escape! (games, fun, funny, flash, stick)
    • Just like that old game “Dragon’s Lair.” Goofy clicking fun.
  • Wizard of Oz/JesusDressUp.com (religious, humor)
    • What would Jesus/Dorothy do? A little irreverence for Good Friday.
  • The_latest_works3.gif (GIF Image, 809×596 pixels) - Scaled (85%) (graphics, illusion, weird, wtf)
    • That image is not animated, it’s your brain doing the work. Neat optical illusion. When you move your eyes, it looks like it’s changing.
  • Daily Set Puzzle (game, puzzle, cards, fun)
    • The non-computer version (of the game “Set”) is becoming popular at our house, so this is a great brain exercise! For the visual and the logical. The online version has a new set of 12 cards every day. If I get better at it, maybe I won’t be so embarassingly bad.

"Sets" are what kill me in IQ tests. It took me 22 minutes to solve today's puzzle... but at least I solved it. :)

It took me 4 minutes, 13 seconds. I didn't know it was keeping track for me. :-P I'm going to have the girls do it. They're pretty good at Set.

Happy Bunnyween, everybody. :-)

I got my birthday time of 11 Mins, 21 Secs. Yikes.

I did it in about 11 minutes. I didn't know it was tracking me, so I did other stuff while I was at it.

I also did the Exactica puzzle as well.

Wheeeeeeeeeee! *boom!*

Just under five minutes this time... because I practiced a little this weekend, and I worked faster because I knew I was being timed. :) (The 22 minutes last time did include the time it took to do the tutorial.)

2 minutes, 42 seconds today. That was an easy one because of what was missing -- most of the sets had to be of a particular kind, but I won't spoil it for anybody who's going to do it.

I thought it was easier this time, too. So it wasn't just my imagination?

I don't think so. You can look at the cards and eliminate possibilities. For example, if there are no sets of two of a particular color, you can eliminate the possibility of sets of two of three different colors, also sets of 1,2, and 3 of three different colors. (So all sets of 2 and all sets of 1,2, and 3 must be monochromatic for the other two colors.) That works for everything, of course.
