No cheating, but it would be 4 chairs. 2 grandfathers, and 2 to seat 2 of their male children who also have children. Fits all of the requirements - there are the 2 grandfathers, the 4 fathers ( 2 are grandfathers) and of course they are all somebody's sons.



Demografix, I did check lost&found, but there were some files in there that belong to "root" only, and not me. I am still missing a brain cell, the other one is getting lonely.

Ignoring that Australia cannot be defined as an island - Australia was as big before it was discovered (by a European in the case given). If it's the biggest of anything I'm betting single country.

This was a question on the radio this morning, and Omid is currently residing there, in the lovely British Island, made up of England, Wales and Scotland.

Demographix, the other brain cell belongs to a certain dove that I am hand rearing, as it was evicted from it's nest. Lovely little bird, called B5, a continuation of the series of flying rats I have brought up to the point of kicking them out into the wild again.

I think Omid is confusing her second language again, I am not a male chicken who cuckolds the henhouse.

Good news about B5 is that it was released a few weeks ago in a semi rural area near Greytown, hopefully to a full life.

I know chameleons can do so, very nice they are, but rather rare here.

I do think the answer is still twelve, though.


Mayhaps the other is an insect or an arachnid, both have large compound eyes, so they probably can see 360 degrees.

Ahhh, but Omid never thought to ask her old superhero friend John. You know, the one with the super intelligence.

In one I am two, observed or cut.
In two I am one, on high or in pain.
But in all three ways,
I sound just the same.

Look, it's easy...

In the word 'one' I am letter number two, ie 'N'.
In the word 'two' I am letter number one, ie 'T'
'on high' means you add those two letters to the word 'over'
All this makes the word 'ntover' which is a little known outer mongolian word from the Darhan region of Ulaanbaatar, meaning 'just the same'. See? Simples.

Next time you're stuck dont forget to ask!

Omid - this is where we have got to; we are looking for three words that sound the same but are spelled differently.  One spelling has two meanings "observed or cut". One the two spellings mean "on high" and the last means "in pain".  Don please correct me if I am wrong!
