Ok, I have to ask... what's with the differing pencil lengths?
They seem to get smaller the more people post.
...
... just like a real pencil?!?

Now that's what I call attention to detail. The more we write, the shorter our icon gets.

Genius. Brainwave

I think that once the pencils "wear out" they might change colour or something like that

We'll just have to keep on posting in order to find out!

At least it will give us something to do until mid March 2007 comes around.
That is when it's all due to start isn't it?

Yeah, it seemed like it was suppose to start last week but, some of the people are out on another game playing? I'm not sure. Wink But i'm glad they're done now so we can Puzzle files until we drop.

Dnbmathguy's puzzles took a little bit longer than anticipated. Embarassed (Obviously we're all out of practice). Hopefully they were a good warm up for these puzzles. Very Happy

I have made headway on most of the sets on Puzzletome - it was specifically the Diabolically Nasty Brainteasers to which I was referring.

I know what each of the lines refers to but cannot think of the right thing to enter in the answer box.

It didn't seem right asking for help on the very first question Confused I can always go back to it when I get trapped in the Labyrinth

I think some help has gone up on it now, and dnbmathguy has posted a hint also (unless he was just singing to himself!).
