10) Dog, perhaps?
Ok, I will give it away below with a clue that no one could miss.Moonbear said:Is it cheating to keep guessing random animals I see everyday (or at least often...squirrels are the only beasts I see EVERY day raiding the bird feeders)?
Perhaps Clarke refused to eat crow?
Wow, we are psychically linked! I had just given the clue that would have given it away!arildno said:10) Dog, perhaps?
I found this in an article in National Geographic titled "Sex, Dog Meat, and the Lash: Odd Facts About Lewis and Clark" I became worried that National Geographic was branching off into kinky stuff.Gokul43201 said:Oh ! I was going after the wrong question. :grumpy: 9 lbs of meat a day !!??!!
Thanks, it took me half a day to find reliable sources to verify everything I was posting, but it was fun. Well, it took me that long because I can't stop reading when I find something new.Gokul43201 said:Great Quiz, Evo !
That one surprised me too.Despite being quite fond of van Eyck's works (he - in fact the realist movement itself, on a broader scale - was such a breath of fresh air from the medieval painters before him :yuck:), I had no idea he pioneered the use of oils ! Loved that one.
I know, but with my lack of knowledge of physics, I had to use information I could verify myself.The physics questions (4, 15) were too easy for a place like this.

Those only work, if, so to speak, you reflect through the x-axis rather than the usual "turn upside down" which is a 180° rotation.tribdog said:how about BIB or BOB instead of NOON?
Oops ! Guess I wass seeing right !plover said:SEES doesn't work...
I think there must be more if you relax the palindrome and capital letter rule. you can use b/q, d/p, h/y, I/I, l/l, m/w, n/u, N/N, o/o, p/d, q/b, s/s, u/n, w/m, x/x, y/h, z/zGokul43201 said:If you relax the palindrome constraint, you only have one more solution (I think) : MOW
And if you take out the capital letter contraint, you get just one more : pod
Allowing any combination of capital and small letters gives one additional possibility : dIp
Quite strange that the seemingly important palindromic constraint was not really !
On the other hand requiring invariance under reflection about a central x-axis (rether than a 180° rotation) opens up many more new solutions : BIB, BOB, DEED, DID, SEES, BOOB, etc.
