Yo! Whassssaaaap, ATS friends!?!

Well, I’ve waited long enough… Some of us used to love the ATS games and events threads “back-in-the-Day” when ATS actually encouraged a little mind-bending activity in the form of fun diversions.

Sure, all that paranormal, conspiracy, Alien/UFO, wicked gubbmint, etc., stuff is thought-provoking aplenty – but a bit of (in Bugs Bunny-speak) “West and We-Waxation” -never hurts.

So – since nobody (at least not among the Amigo-clan) has put anything up in this forum in a while, I thought I might try and get the ball rolling again with a few puzzles and games to ‘lighten-the-load’ somewhat from the heavy-duty stuff in most of the other forums. You know, just to give my mates at ATS a chance to scratch a different part of their heads…

Just to start us off, here’s a few classics, and a couple you may not have seen before. Your own favorites or any new, intriguing puzzle, riddle, enigma, brainteaser, paradox, and/or optical illusion is welcome. So don’t be shy! Chime in! Some of the sharpest minds on the net are found right here on ATS – see if you can stump or fool us!

Have fun – and keep smiling!

























Ok... Your Turn!

The hole in the top one comes from the fact that the orange block is dropped one level, and the length of the gap is one block longer than the axes of the gaps in the blocks as they are above. This also allows the blue block to have the correct height at the front, as it is one block lower than the red one.

Cool stuff and thanks!

Without cheating, I have deduced the first puzzle in less than two minutes. The angle of the triangles in each image are sloped. One is convex and the other is concave. Hold a ruler over the slope.

W00t go me.

The lover's head is right behind the lady's neck (better seen if you rotate the picture upside-down).

Damn, that is one giant lover.

No Sex Causes Bad Eyes.

Funny thing, as you were posting this, I was working on another diversion for myself...Numerology and the number 9.

Strange things happened when I was doing some calculations. Everything kept being reduced to the number 9.

Rather than starting another thread, I will just include my fact sheet here for all to see.

I've done this line of thinking also but have seen that everything is divisible by 3.
