    I think today CY learns a lesson that we that tried to post contests long ago learned. That the simple games like 5-4 letter games, and Member post up/ Staff count down... Tend to drown out other types of contests.

    Hopefully because it is NP and Domain related there will be some outside promotion, like getting on to the popular today types of lists.

    The baseball puzzle from @briguy I was afraid to scroll down in case the answer was posted, so I did actually solve it without even seeing the multiple choices, unfair advantage my mind is trained to always look for a trick or gotcha. Anyone else posting puzzles put multiple choices in spoiler tags to be more sporting.

    There's so many I've seen, I ran across this one last week, and had not seen it before. Took me under two hours, I was multi-tasking downloading and doing puzzle on paper, kinda wish I knew my actual time.

    If you are answering here also use spoiler tags so everyone can try without hints.

    PS It's commonly touted as a really difficult puzzle claiming only 2% of the world can solve it and that is highly UN-likely to be true, also wrongly attributed to Einstein

    The puzzle consists of five different-colored houses in a row, each lived in by a resident of a different nationality. Each resident owns a different pet, prefers a different drink, and smokes a different brand of cigarettes than the others.

    You’re given 15 other facts:

    1. There are five houses.
    2. The Englishman lives in the red house.
    3. The Spaniard owns the dog.
    4. Coffee is drunk in the green house.
    5. The Ukrainian drinks tea.
    6. The green house is immediately to the right of the ivory house (to your right as you stand facing the row of five houses).
    7. The Old Gold smoker owns snails.
    8. Kools are smoked in the yellow house.
    9. Milk is drunk in the middle house.
    10. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
    11. The man who smokes Chesterfields lives in the house next to the man with the fox.
    12. Kools are smoked in a house next to the house where the horse is kept.
    13. The Lucky Strike smoker drinks orange juice.
    14. The Japanese smokes Parliaments.
    15. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
    To solve the puzzle, tell me:

    1) Which man likes to drink water

    2) Which man owns a zebra

    The source where I found it is here - http://waitbutwhy.com/table/zebra-puzzle - Do NOT scroll to the comments if you want to solve without hints.

    And apparently he does well with them. :tu:
    I've never seen it, but I would venture a guess BBW has a nice portfolio of working names.

    Peace,
    Cy

    And now for my favorite segue...
    How bout dem Lakers :)

    This is old news, but I just heard about it when Magic was on Kimmel tonight.

    Lakers Name Earvin "Magic" Johnson President of Basketball Operations

    Jeanie finally got rid of her worthless brother, and cleaned house while she was at it.

    *************************
    "LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Lakers Governor Jeanie Buss announced today that the team has named Earvin "Magic" Johnson as President of Basketball Operations. In addition, General Manager Mitch Kupchak has been relieved of his duties, effective immediately. Furthermore, Jim Buss will no longer hold his role as Lakers Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations."

    "With regard to fellow owner and brother, Jim Buss, Ms. Buss said, "Jim loves the Lakers. Although he will no longer be responsible for basketball personnel decisions, he is an owner of this team and we share the same goal: returning the Lakers to the level of greatness our father demanded. Our fans deserve no less."
    ************************
    They are a young team and it may take a couple years, but at least now everyone is headed in the right direction.

    I mean really, who doesn't love Magic Johnson?
    Well maybe a few rival players, but they don't count. ;)

    Peace,
    Cy
