    Time for another diversion:

    The Puzzle

    How many petals do you see around the rose?

    It took about twelve attempts before I got it. My kids did not get it until I provided many, many obvious clues. My wife got it immediately--first attempt. I pointed out to her that the brighter you are, the harder it is to do. I'm in big trouble now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    It drove me nuts, looking for a mathematical pattern for four minutes - and then it dawned on me - and worked consistently.

    cool game!!
    it took me about an hour!
    I even looked up other pages on it..
    even when I had a big long string of examples, I *still* couldnt figure it out!!

    finally, just thinking about the "3 rules" the answer popped into my head and it was all obvious!

    found this other cool page about it:

    If you see the dice, that's all you're supposed to see.
