It's that time again.

Time for you to hurt and me to get frustrated.

First, thanks to all of you for getting us to # 300. Thanks to all who are helping out today and thanks to all of you who keep me laughing.

Todays LTP will have 3 puzzles done by me, then 2 more by Merc when mine are done

Please try to figure out what puzzle we are on.

If I do not answer your question, it is probably because we have moved to another puzzle.

This moves quick, so really keep an eye on which ones have been completed and which one we are on.

What are Lateral Thinking Puzzles????

Sherlock Holmes would definitelty be stumped. Dr. Watson, however, might solve one or two.

And you might too - if you abandon all your mental inhibitions.

Logic is not enough to solve this puzzle. In fact, logic is your enemy for the next hour.

Imagination is your only resource when you enter the world of the outrageous, unlikely, and utterly illogical world of lateral thinking.

Edward de Bono coined the phrase "lateral thinking" to describe a process of thinking that is different from normal, or vertical , thinking.

This puzzle will force you to think differently in order to explain a set of circumstances surrounding a seemingly inexplicaple situation.

These are outlandish, unusual, fascinating - and impossible to quit.

wanna do it?

Here we go!

This is the West Coast Edition of the Lateral Thinking Puzzle.

For newcomers: The only rules are that the questions must be yes/no format, and if you already know the answer (before the game has begun), please refrain from spoiling it.

Just as an FYI, if you complain about this not fitting your 'classic' definition of an LTP, we're probably going to ignore you. We're not being snooty, or mean, we've heard it all before, so please just play the game as we have it laid out, and above all, have fun!
