An Enigma Wrapped In A Riddle by Bryan G. Nance
A prize will go to the first person to unwrap this mystery.
Meet John (pictured) – master carpenter, master craftsman, and part-time mathematician. John is my neighbor, and for the last few weeks he has been constructing this “structure” in his front yard.
I know that many of you are stressed-out over the SATs, ACTs, SAT IIs and EIEIO (a test only given by Professor O. McDonald), but you deserve a break today. Listen closely: drop the practice test book and back away slowly from the college applications and I promise you that no one will be harmed! Take a moment to examine John’s front-yard project. Drop me a line if you think you know what he’s building.
- Hint # 1: Put on your math-based thinking cap.
- Hint # 2: Since I have not seen any wildebeasts, sloths or rhinos walking 2×2 in the neighborhood, I can speak with some certainty that he is not Noah and said construction in not an ark.
P.S. A prize will go to the first person to unwrap this mystery.
