Perhaps the twitter post is a Red Herring to try and throw us off from the Dots!?!?!?
But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you: are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet or his
enemy's? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given.
I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on
it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.
Not remotely. Because iocane comes from Australia, as everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to
having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you.
You'd like to think that, wouldn't you? You've beaten my giant, which means you're exceptionally strong, so you could've put the poison in your
own goblet, trusting on your strength to save you, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you've also bested my Spaniard, which
means you must have studied, and in studying you must have learned that man is mortal, so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as
possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.
You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the
classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia". -Vizzini's last words in "The Princess Bride"
