Re: Impossible objects

Yes I liked that one too! Thats actually a pretty nifty idea for anyone who's paranoid about a burglar trying to put their hand through and undo it.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Impossible objects

10 screws to secure the maze to the door, just two screws to secure the chain to the door frame and a chain that looks a bit thin for anyone needing super-high security.
It would be such a bind putting the chain at the far end of the maze that the temptation would be not to use the chain at all.

I love that calculator, gotta get one of those...!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
