The Puzzle

Puzzled by the Puzzle

Mandy took this picture at Thanksgiving after they had given me this gift. It was a puzzle.

This is my confused (or maybe bewildered) look. I was puzzled by the puzzle. I have never seen one like this before.
Here’s a close-up of the reason for being bewildered. When you pull out the wooden rods the whole puzzle comes apart.


And the answer is “no”. I have not taken it apart yet. But I will… I just need to study it a while longer.

Joke of the Day

World War III. The U.S.A. have succeeded in building a fantastic computer that is able to solve any strategic or tactical problem. The military leaders are assembled in front of the new machine.

They describe the situation to the computer and then ask it:
"Shall we attack? Shall we retreat?"

The computer computes for an hour and then comes up with the answer.

The generals, rather stupefied, look at each other. Finally one of them asks the computer:
"Yes, what?"

After another fifteen minutes the computer replies:
"Yes, Sir!"
