Because Jose Emanuel Deigo Candel was burned at the stake during the Spanish Inquisition??

I did find a nice science experiment, though. I am posting it under Physics Discussion so that the science can be discussed and explained.

Talking of upside down things, I just saw the Thatcher illusion on Qi ...

 [ Invalid Attachment ]

Quote
The effect is illustrated by two originally identical photos, which are inverted. The second picture is obviously (and quite grotesquely) altered so that the eyes and mouth are vertically flipped, though the changes are not immediately obvious until the image is viewed in normal orientation.

This is thought to be due to specific psychological processes involved in face perception which are tuned especially to upright faces. Faces seem unique despite the fact that they are very similar. It has been hypothesised that we develop specific processes to differentiate between faces that rely as much on the configuration (the structural relationship between individual features on the face) as the details of individual face features, such as the eyes, nose and mouth. When a face is upside down, the configural processing cannot take place, and so minor differences are more difficult to detect.

This effect is not present in people who have some forms of prosopagnosia, a disorder where face processing is impaired, usually acquired after brain injury or illness. This suggests that their specific brain injury may damage the process that analyses facial structures.

If the number in the lower left corner is the check, pardon me - the Britis, hurmph! - cheque number, it is check number 147.

In the US the confusion is done away with as the cheque number is not put with the rest of the banking info on the bottom of a ewe - er, cheque - but is located in the upper right hand corner for easier handling by the customer. It is also repeated on the bottom line as well, but we do things much more sanely here in the US.

Neil make these a tad more difficult. I had to type all of this in without thinking too much. I need a decent challenge.

BTW, should the middle number be the check - no, cheque! number, everyone is screwed with the hint given.

The dinosaur turns, sweeps his tail, and in one deft move hits the sheepy at exactly the right angle and velocity to launch the sheepy into the air and towards the front of the dinosaur where the sheepy is swallowed whole through the gaping maw of the dinosaur's mouth. 

It's not nice to piss off daddy dinosaur.

Fact is, he's walking !!

It's an archaic expression and possibly has a northern bias  ...

Quote
Most of the well-known manufacturers produced pony or horse drawn mowers but probably the best known was Alexander Shanks and Co of Arbroath, Scotland. This company had produced the first horse drawn mowers in the mid-19th century  and they were immediately popular, especially on the growing number of golf courses and other sports grounds that were being built at the time. Some people believe that this is the origin of the term "Shanks's Pony",

Why does one half of the map have big blocky blocks and the other half have small blocky blocks ?

Please note, this is not the next puzzle...this is me asking a question.

The puzzle will be along after this intermission that will now last a few hours !

Post by: RD on 19/02/2009 02:42:13
I think the blocks are counties within states.
The greater the (human) population density the more numerous and smaller the counties within a state.
So poorly populated states have big blocks.

i.e the block size is is inversely proportional to population density.

In general this is correct - BUT these county boundaries were all set by 1900 so it reflects population density at that time, not at present.

King County, Texas. In 2000, its population was 356. King County has the second-smallest population of any county in the continental United States, ranking ahead of only Loving County, which has a population of 67 people. There is a county in Hawaii that has less people.

It's an archaic expression and possibly has a northern bias  ...

Quote
Most of the well-known manufacturers produced pony or horse drawn mowers but probably the best known was Alexander Shanks and Co of Arbroath, Scotland. This company had produced the first horse drawn mowers in the mid-19th century  and they were immediately popular, especially on the growing number of golf courses and other sports grounds that were being built at the time. Some people believe that this is the origin of the term "Shanks's Pony",

http://www.oldlawnmowerclub.co.uk/moms/mom25-spm.htm

Then how is it that here in the States it is also a well known expression?



A lot of Jocks emigrating to the states in the 19th century.

This is CORRECT !!



...and thank ewe for not saying it's  "Tibias Wombat" or something like that.

As RD says, although the distance is indeed correct (as Karensaid)..the fact that one normally slows down whilst going uphill means that Angela did in fact spend more time running up hill !

OK, here is the answer..I stumped ewe all but congrats to JC for getting almost there.



Each one of those words are the meanings behind the mythological God names of the planets............... MERCURY-God of Invention, VENUS- God of Love etc etc...the reason why the third one is blank is because EARTH is not named after a mythological God....see ?

*le joy*

Upon successful clearance of your cheque I will send ewe the gum...I may chew it for a little while longer if that's Ok.

I will also complete a direct debit form for you to continue your monthly subscription to 'Chewed-Bubblgum-Monthly' where for the small fee of £300 (monthly) I will send ewe a brand new chewed gum.**









**on rare occasions....like....12 times a year ewe'll receive a polite note to go buy your own gum and chew it then send it to yourself but mark on the envelope that it's from me. This helps keep my costs down and will reduce your annual increase to only 90% instead of 100%

RD is correct !!!......


here is why RD is correct !

H is the 5th Letter in FiftH, E is the 2nd letter in sEcond, I is the 3rd letter in thIrd, F is the 1st letter in First,E is the 2nd letter in sEcond and finally, R is 4th letter in fouRth...


Now although, RD did not explain it..I am sure it was known yes ?....be honest now !!

OK. What this thread needs is someone intelligent to spoon feed you the answers. So here I am.

If you look at every other letter then colpoesne!d actually contains two words. The odd numbered letters (1, 3, 5, etc) spell 'closed' and the evens spell 'open!'. If that were written on a zig-zagged surface then you would see the word 'open' when looking from one direction and 'closed' when looking from the other. I just can't think of a context where that would be commonly used.
Title: Re: Puzzles From A Trampolining Upside Down Sheeps Bottom (PFATSB) :-)
Post by: John Chapman on 01/10/2010 23:37:44
Got it!

It's not written on a zig-zagged surface. It's a shop door sign. The word colpoesned is on a sliding mechanism behind a grill that shows every other letter. The sign might read 'closed'. But slide it a little to the left and it will then say 'open'. Ta daa!  Who's the daddy?

Correct !!...yep..that was a simple one !  When interviewed about it Arthur C Clarke insisted it was just a coincidence. Well done damocles.  [:)]

I don't get it. How does that spell D E C ?

It does not. It spells G Z K, but the K is an obvious misprint for an R, GEEZER!  [::)]

PS ... or perhaps we need to D E C the H A L s with boughs of holly?

Wow! Let me see if I have this right. You're saying Gene Roddenberry actually anticipated the formation of GZR Computers and Venetian Blinds which was only incorporated last Tuesday?

So...
How did HAL become inserted as a critical, and sometimes problematic component of MS Windows a few decades later?

I would never say that! Gene Roddenberry was off thinking about Star Trek at the time.

This may or may not be the answer in terms of the queen's English, but we Aussies see it as a feature of North American English that "any noun can be verbed" (and vice versa).
-------

One other feature that may or may not be relevant is that each of these words has just one vowel per syllable (Unlike words like foot, rose, dear, greasy). But that is not an uncommon property -- the cat sat on the hat has all words of this sort. I suspect (hope) that there is a deeper and more subtle answer.

Blame it on the Americans....

So...
One can "hoof it to town."
"Don't horse around"
"One can dog someone until they give in".
"Boot him out of the house!!!"
"Let's table the motion for now."

In many cases, though, one must change the words somewhat to make them into a verb, for example "Americanizing words".

I can't help wondering; if you had a car parked in your bottom, would you care about the numbers?

I'm fairly sure some of the numbers (including the missing one) are the solutions to this polynomial
x^6 - 531 x^5 + 117475 x^4 - 13859985 x^3 + 919750924 x^2 - 32549480844 x + 479926006560=0

Can't you fit 5 arbitrary numbers to a 5th degree polynomial?
...although it's tougher if you insist that the unknown 6th number must be an integer
...and even tougher if you insist that all coefficients must also be integers!

You can. but that's not quite the same thing.
That polynomial only has a fairly simple set of solutions - the values of x that give an answer of zero.
And they are the numbers of the parking spaces (well, most of them- I forgot one, and I can't be bothered to redo the maths)

For example, if you calculate that polynomial for x=88 you will get zero. (Unless I screwed up somewhere)
