A little help for y'all--I have identified below which riddles require numbers in the answer.

And now for something different. All of these 4 riddles deal with math in one way or another. The answer to 2 of them are numbers – not letters.
The answer to two of them contain palindromes – one with numbers and one with letters.

1. If the legislature was all composed of calculus professors, it might be illegal to do what?

3. What is the root of all evil?--The answer is all in numbers

4. What week this year, running from Sunday to Saturday, as weeks do, had numbers forming a palindrome everyday? (OK. This is not a pun; so consider it to be a bonus question.)--The answer is all in numbers.

Fast riddle #32

chasmwuk@...

More of a malapropism than a pun:

As an English teacher, I tell my students not to use punctuation indicating surprise, anger, vulgarity, etc. precipitously.  Think it over
first.  If they repeatedly to heed my warnings, I send them to a sex therapist.  Why?

Rogue Riddle #729 Update

Feta Whey

Jim has 3 correct and Stan has 2. Neither of them will host next week and there are no other entries thus far.
I am going out for a few hours. If I don't get more entrants by then, I'll post hints.

Re: FAST Riddle #31

Stan Kegel

Cyn,

I agree.  But while "FAST" is the suggested series subject, it is not necessary to post a riddle that conforms to that subject. You can post any riddle you want at anytime, but it should be one that requires little research to answer, no matter what the "theme" of the series is. We try to get as many riddles during the 3 day period as possible. Chris’ riddle is a valid riddle for any series we happen to be running.

I feel Chris can answer the guess he receives and give a clue to the guesser if he pleases, but should not post either a BINGO or a clue to the whole group until Tuesday.

I did not see the rogue had been posted until after I answered the post.

The Rogue certainly WAS posted--early this morning--and then re-posted with clues. Did u not get it? I strongly urge Chris to hold off doing anything more till Tuesday unless someone sends him a guess.

But Chris, for your future info, as Lars said, The F-Riddles (this series is FAST--when we get to # 100 we will start a new series with a new acronym beginning with "F") run from Tuesday thru Thursday.

Cyn

I would suggest we play # 31 now as long as it has been posted as the Rogue has not been posted and usually doesn’t get posted until Sunday morning.

Whoever gets the BINGO for 31 will then post 32 on Tuesday morning. If No BINGO by then, Chris should give us a clue.

Now the question is whether or not he or she will host #31.

No response at all?  Not even to the bingo?  Strange!

You might want to check with Gary H or Stan.

Just a thought.

Aloha,

Lars

Hi, Doug!

No, I do not recognize that e-mail address.  You might try replying and asking who it is. Not one of our regular players, which would be a good sign.  The more the merrier!

Rogue Riddle #729 A little help for y'all

Feta Whey

A little help for y'all--I have identified below which riddles require numbers in the answer.

And now for something different. All of these 4 riddles deal with math in one way or another. The answer to 2 of them are numbers – not letters.
The answer to two of them contain palindromes – one with numbers and one with letters.

1. If the legislature was all composed of calculus professors, it might be illegal to do what?

3. What is the root of all evil?--The answer is all in numbers

4. What week this year, running from Sunday to Saturday, as weeks do, had numbers forming a palindrome everyday? (OK. This is not a pun; so consider it to be a bonus question.)--The answer is all in numbers.

Lim-Ber Your Mind # 345 COMPLETED

Cynthia MacGregor

Craft a lim on the subject of balloons. These can be party balloons, balloons that take people for rides, weather balloons--even the so-called "balloons" that hold speech in comic strips, or any other kind of balloons I may not have thought of.

The entries:

The hot-air balloonists' elation

Is waning across the whole nation.

They are bound to the ground.

It's profound that they're downed

By the high-rising cost of inflation.

Man had dreamed to go floating up there

In the sky.  Folks cried, "No, don't you dare.

It's too risky," they said.

"He is daft in the head.

The balloonist is full of hot air."

Kirk Miller

I don’t do a lot of ballooning
For parties or other festooning
I have on occasion
Encountered inflation
When doing my budget fine-tuning

And the winner is Kirk

The riddle will be coming out Saturday morning. Early if I can.

Re: FAST Riddle #31 - RETIRED

Stan Kegel

Lars,

First, Jim is correct. When a riddle is retired without a BINGO, the next riddle is the same number with an -A after it and if that one is retired with a -B which did a occur earlier this year. Thus the replacement should be titled FAST Riddle #31-A.

Second, I agree with Charles 100%. This is probably the most esoteric or obscure riddle we’ve ever had.

My criteria for deciding if an answer is obscure or not: Is there any way that someone not knowing the answer can reasonably find the answer by searching common sources using the information given. If not, I feel it should not be used in the F- Riddles.

This is the best example I have ever seen of what I would call an obscure answer require ding specialized knowledge to answer. I spent an unsuccessful period searching maps of Scotland looking for any location that had speed or fast or slow or similar word that imply speed and found none,

When you gave your give-away clue, I returned to the maps and looked for a place in Scotland with lane in its name again unsuccessfully.

After you gave the answer which was a wee bit harder than you thought, I looked in the index of each of the atlases where a list of all locations printed on the maps with the page and location of the entry and Faslane was in none of them.

I then went on Wikipedia and typed in Faskane. I was taken to a site entitled "HMNB Clyde" where it was stated that the "Clyde" navel base was large and encompassed a number of separate sites, the two biggest of which were Faslane which is the home base of Britain’s nuclear submarines and Coulport which is the home base of their non-nuclear submarines.

As you and Jim point out, this is a riddle that Jim would have answered immediately as he visited the site last year. To call your clues "Giveaway", and in retiring the riddle to say the riddle was a way bit harder than you thought, I feel is condescending and objectionable to all of us who tried to find the answer. If you really wanted to have any of us other than Jim answer the riddle, one of the clues should have referred to "submarines" or "nuclear" or "naval base' at least. Looking up any of these clues would have given us a chance to find Faslane.

I hope FAST Riddle # 31-A is not only on topic but is also in the spirit of the F- rules being easy to find with reasonable research of references on the web or available at home.

Jim,

Indeed!

Fangs for the support.  Maybe a set of windshield vipers might have cleared things a bit.

If Stan prefers a different riddle number, he can tell me.

Meanwhile, I will just snake off for a nice weekend, but not weakened by the flak on this one.  I do not intend to asp for forgiveness, nor let the matter be a constrictor for future efforts.  Anaconda way there is another benefit, as such incidents merely serve as reminders of what others may consider to be common knowledge.

Sorry, Jim!

I was sure you would have torpedoed FAST #31!

However, play was slowed, hence the retirement.

Hang around for FAST #32.  It should be an easier one for all.

Bummer. We just got home from a day-long excursion and I finally checked my e-mail backlog. Too bad this riddle was retired, since my wife and I were actually at Faslane during our trip to the U.K. last September, so I would’ve nailed this one before any clues!

C’est la vie. Okay, “la vie.”

Jim
============================
All,

Och, it appears this one was a wee bit tougher than anticipated, unfortunately.  Doug and Alex were the only ones playing.  I thought Jim would catch this one for sure, but apparently he did not.

I am retiring FAST #31, and will provide FAST #32 on Tuesday morning.

The driver, Clyde, had made the mistake of shifting to the FASLANE (FAST LANE), and so wound up in that bay in Gareloch in bonnie Scotland.

Faslane is the site of HM Naval Base Clyde, in Scotland.  It was the home base for U.S. ballistic missile submarines (SSBN's), and now is the home bases for British Vanguard class SSBN's.

FAST #32 also will follow the theme.  Look for it Tuesday morning.

Most guesses repeatedly missed the pony that this riddle was back on theme.

Nevertheless, there were some fun guesses along the way, however:

From Doug:

He didn't loch left

From Alex:

He was in firth gear

Life in the firth lane

Thanks for playing.

Aloha,

Lars

When Clyde surfaced from his submerged vehicle, he found himself in the vanguard of a bunch of others who also had arrived at the same place for the same reason.

(Giveaway) Clue #1:

As noted when FAST #31 was sent out, this riddle os on theme.

What is a division on a highway called?

All,

Chris Gross "killed" FAST #30, but is unable to post.

Lest we be shod for delay of game, herewith the back-on-track (and theme) FAST Riddle #31.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><>><><><><>

The driver was quite confused as he clambered quickly out of his sinking car.  All he had done while driving in the American Midwest was to merge onto the highway, then shift from the right-hand side of the highway to the left.  No sooner did he get to the left on the highway than he suddenly found himself in the waters of an inlet in Scotland.

Why?
