Desmond Llewelyn as "Q", Vin Diesel as "XXX", Xander Cage & the comic and upcoming video game, "XIII".

Before anyone asks, the point totals on the tiles are not from the English edition, they are from the Spanish edition. Which, oddly enough, equals thirteen.

It was so much funnier in my head.

Don't sell it short, mumbling2myself... it's New Yorker-style cartoon humor... which means, we don't get it, but it looks like it should very clever! :)

Good point, SquirrelHill, my entry towers over all your heads!

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World is one of my favorite all time movies.

This was very cool and thought provoking. Keep em coming!

Killshot: You would have gotten a vote if the kids math was correct. From what I see there, there is not enough info to answer the question

2003-11-06 04:57:23 PM  
Jango gets my vote for that just being plain-old kooky.

2 Q's, Professor X, and the 13. What do I win?
2003-11-06 05:06:33 PM  

you get my vote. i liked it and agree you shouldn't see yourself short.

40 Dog ,

The kid's math is perfectly correct. X is the center of teh circle, XZ is the radius. XZ, XY, & YZ form a right triangle. XY is half of PQ and YZ is half of OP(since PQ and OP are sides of a rectangle circumscribed within a circle with all corners touchinf the circle, the center of the rectangle must be the center of the circle). From there you can use Pythagorus' Theorem and the lengths of OP and PQ to find out that the radius of the circle is indeed 13.

40 Dog: The problem is certainly solvable and the child prodigy's math is correct. Unless you want to get really anal and claim that it can't be solved because inscribed quadrilateral OPQZ has never been explicitly declared an inscribed rectangle, the problem is solved very easily, following the child prodigy's math.

Let's put on our math hats and go on a geometry adventure! Since it is an inscribed rectangle, the rectangle and circle must share centers and therefore the diagonal of the rectangle is the diameter of the circle. The right triangle XYZ is made up of legs XY (which is 1/2 PQ => 5) and YZ (which is 1/2 OP => 12). You use pythagorean's theorem (unless you're sharp enough to recognize this as a 5-12-13 right triangle without doing the algebra) and you come up with hypotenuse XZ of the right triangle, which runs from the center of the circle to the edge, making it equal to the radius. Problem solved.

And my friends told me my hours behind my geometry books would never help me... fools!

jango....what you get 3 blanks in the spanish edition as well?

mike2834: Your explanation translates in my head to "I've never touched a vagina."
2003-11-06 05:12:07 PM  
We're assuming XY is indeed (QP)/2 and ZY is (OP)/2. If so, then good job. You have my vote.
2003-11-06 05:12:17 PM  
My lord, I thought I was a nerd. You guys crack me up (In a good, mathematical way).

Humble lesser geek here.

Oh, and thanks, kulashaker, but don't forget that you can vote for as many entries as you like.... I shouldn't get your vote, if anything I should get a vote from ya. ;)

Cranberryzero I was moving along the same path, except was using an X-ray of a victim Jason slashed, and Q-bert with a Sherlock Holmes hat

Beyond that I was stumped. Decided I'd just come and vote.
2003-11-06 05:12:39 PM  
Sorry, mike2834 , you should really speak up louder next time, it's hard to hear those of you in the back of the classroom.
2003-11-06 05:12:53 PM  

screw the lot of em, i voted for you.
2003-11-06 05:16:28 PM  
The apparent rectangle may not be so and x may not be the center. To many assumptions = bad math
2003-11-06 05:17:07 PM  
Stop the math! Stop the math! Please, for the love of pete, stop the math!! Sickos!

In other news, great job on the photoshops. Twasn't an easy one...
2003-11-06 05:17:29 PM  
some good entries this time!!!
2003-11-06 05:21:07 PM  
40 Dog, nutkick_42, mike2834 et al, thanks for double-checking my work. The instructions that state "With X being the center of the circle, and rectangle OPQZ being inscribed within said circle" must've gotten cropped out. Damn you Inkfrog!
