I'm looking for a puzzle that was linked to in one of the askme comments a little over 6 months ago...

It was a series of different shapes in different colors and the goal was to match three of them with a common attribute.

O, puzzle nerds, how I love thee.

If you didn't catch the earlier Einstein post, you might want to check that out, too. I play it every day since I discovered it here, and my husband thinks I'm utterly insane.

btw, working through the Bongard problems now, and I don't see what's going on with this one. It's the only one that's stumped me so far... hep?

ooops. Just got to #66. Heh.

Heh... Okay, got it. That had actually kind of occurred to me, but it seemed out of sync with the rest, which seem a lot simpler/basic somehow - without reference to a separate construct, I guess.

I'd say the diesel (yes, I know) & widdershins opposition is one of the most basic, baked-in features of our universe.

Yes, unwarranted wolfdog abuse is one of the other basic baked-in features of the universe.

Actually, she applied for and received a warrant. It's on file at the ministry; you can get a copy for two quid. And that's just one of the new features we're working on for mefi!
