    Okay, this thread is for all the puzzle-buffs in the forum. Post any puzzle, problem, whodunnits, cryptograms or any darned thing that requires out-of-box thinking to solve; Provided of course you know the answer yourself. No Googling!!!
    I will go first.:biggrin:

    This code is a message for the guy who solves it first:
    YY U R, YY U B,
    I C U R YY 4 me.

    Hint:

    T=tea, Q=que

    This supposed to be a message for a guy.. And you got me here... Misogynist. *leaves*

    Misogynist- hmm... perhaps a bit albeit subconsciously(working on it)...Conciously though I am apathetic to both sexes. I would edit the offending phrase but for some reason i can't :confused: don't know why edit's not working.
    Sorry:(

    So, are we supposed to fit other letters instead of the Ys to get the message?

    This is not hard.. Come on guys, you can do it. :biggrin:

    Nope. Every letter(s) signifies a word.

    Yes, I see that, except for the Ys, it doesn't make sense with double Y... wait

    Twice you are, twice you be,
    I see you are twice for me.

    Or is that "twice for Emmy"?

    They call my grandniece Emmy. I imagine it's short for Emmeline, or something.

    Try "too wise" throughout and "for me" at the end.

    Yep, that is correct. By the way great signature Om ; almost mistook it for gibberish.
    Ans. Too wise you are, too wise you be. I see you are too wise for me!
    Here's the next one :
    You have got a cake. Cut it into 8 pieces with three cuts of a knife only.

    I know this one, I came up with the same answer when first asked; and yet I hate the answer because it's just no fair to get a bottom piece without the nice frosting. A bottom piece is not a real piece. :yuck:

    I'm suffering through what I think is a bout of gluten-intolerance, so I'm off it for the moment to see how I feel - shouldn't think about cake - arrgghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! :grumpy:

    Once upon a time, in the faraway kingdom of Enigmania (:tongue2:) the king decides its time for him to choose a suitable groom for his daughter. Four princes approach the king vying for the hand of the princess. In order to choose the best among the four suitors the king and the princess arrange a test: the suitors are brought to a large rectangular hall. The floor is covered with a carpet all over except at the corners- where there are four squares of bare floor and the suitors are told to stand at these corner. Each suitor takes a corner and stands there while the princess stands at the center of the hall. The king then proclaims the prince who without leaving their respective squares shall put a ring on the princess's hand will be declared to be the bridegroom of his daughter and the heir to Enigmania. No ropes or rods are allowed. How does the winner succeed in this trial?

    (Why am I the only one posting questions? Come on PFers, I could use some brainstorming too...)

    That might be a fun game. All but one of those quotes were based on comments made on this forum.
    Who said it, and what was the original quote?

    lisab will definitely remember hers. I find that Integral used his phrase twice.

    I can't find the post that inspired the "Music" quote, but I'm pretty sure it was Borek's fault.
    It is abbreviated, as are all the quotes.

    I think there are a total of 7 quotes intertwined. The first two lines of the Haiku contain 4 quotes.

    Ha! It's a quantum signature. It has color, a bit of spin, definitely poly-dimensional, and no one really understands it. :tongue2:
