    Standard List

    Professor Barney Owl is holding a geography lesson at the Magic Forest School. He has just written up on the board the following countries:

    Australia
    Burundi
    Chile
    Grenada
    Honduras
    Micronesia
    Panama

    "OK children, your homework tonight is to put these countries into a standard list"......

    Jezzarette 1 is well chuffed "I'll have this done by the end of my bus journey home and Dad will think I am working while I am really reading my magazine <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>"

    Can you get the list complete?

    <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> I think it is time for a clue

    Claude introduced these standards to the Lounge only just recently, weird thing though, some days he has standards, other days he doesn't. You just can't tell. I think you need to look at these standards

    Since I don't understand puzzles for binary brains, and don't understand puzzles that are not for binary brains either, there's not much left...
