Some puzzles have just the right amount of thought provocation without dragging on before the light dawns, others we have gotten straight away and a couple we have moved on from to return to on another day. We read this aloud at The Diogenes Club (its all right, we allow speaking at ours) and work it out by bouncing… Read more
