    Re: Visually Speaking

    Initially, I envisaged this puzzle being solved by now.

    Re: Visually Speaking

    How about <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">1C, 2A, 3D, 4B</span hide>

    I expect you to say this is wrong as I have no idea what the answer should be. If enough of us keep guessing one of us will probably get it right eventually.

    Rob

    I can not fully explain the answer, it was mainly a guess based on limited reasoning.
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">I based the guess on the first 2 letters of certain words.
    2A - the boy had a CUt and line 2 started with a CUbe
    4B - PEntium computer and line 4 started with a PEntagon
    1C - LIon tamer and line 1 started with LIghtining
    3D - was not sure but it was the only option left</span hide>

    As I am lucky with my guesses I think I will enter the lottery this week. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Talk about thinking outside the box! <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Your focus on beginings is intuitively correct.</span hide>

    Re: Visually Speaking

    My thinking would be:
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Take the initial letters of each shape - e.g. lightning - L; arc-A etc) and you get , I think, the words lash, cap, hook and pool. The images are Knee, Typing, Whip and Fish. Hence the pairs are Whip-lash, Knee-cap, Fish-hook and Typing-pool. Correct?</span hide>

    Re: Visually Speaking

    A perfect answer, Sherlock. I thought the puzzle a fairly standard one. Why do you think It seemed to stump so many experienced solvers? Boredom, perhaps? <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
