If I were to tell you any one of the following you could not figure out my rectangle: the perimeter, the area, or the length of the diagonal. Oops, I've already told you enough. The answer is in the form "sixbythree", if the rectangle's sides were of length 6x3. jbvntx

I realized I actually *do* have a puzzle that's been sitting in my archives but it can wait. I have to manipulate the image a bit. AZu can go first. I'll change the password and pm it to him. Edit: but in the interest of keeping the thread moving I'm stealing it back if he doesn't claim within two hours

OK. That's just gross. I had assumed it was just a plumber's snake, but I see that the top is not just a handle.

Glad I noticed that the chessboard was kinda screwy. =O Also, does anyone care to solve the last song title in my puzzle, and discern the password? Or shall I spoil? Maybe I suck at chess again, but I think Kd3 is an illegal move, because the king would then be in check by the bishop at b1 Never mind. There is no bishop there once it's captured. Yup.
