the difficulty isn't leading anywhere, except to the end

well, the story is for its own sake

for the characters, it seems they're always frustrated

now, I understand my life

transformation.



Awwww, you guessed it so quickly! Not!


"Harvey" has nothing to do with transformation. C'mon guys, think. Work those little synapses. Let's hear 'um crackling.

If you add the numbers in the dates going across = 162
If you add each of the four vertical columns going down = 162

If I added ANYTHING correctly, thatís the pattern I saw.

Finally. I knew you wouldn't let me down, Olive. See? It took a woman to get the right answer.


See? (sigh) I was right; women are superior. This proves it.:clap:

But the question was "what do these have in common?" It is not clear to me that the above answers the question. :-)

Okay, Merri, your turn. Think up something and we'll figure out what you did.

Merri, are you dissing the game? I don't understand your comment. You don't have to play, but criticizing it because... what, exactly?

Hints: the answer has nothing to do with numbers, paint brands, or art history.

That's too fancy a machine for me, but thanks. Save your money and spend it on a bag of candy corn or something.

You know...I didn't actually know that right off the top of my head, although I figured it was about paint properties. In fact, I know little about technical painterly things or what you can do with them or shouldn't do with them. I just squirt out a big blob on my palette, sometimes mix something in or use them "straight up," and call it a day. And then the next day, I forgot what I just did the day before. So in that sense, I never learn.
