The Flamingo Felony: A Narrative Mystery

This is a fictional mystery. All people, situations, circumstances and relations are fictional. It is a narrative puzzle that does not reflect on the real world. *All details are important, but bolded details are more likely to be of assistance* At 4:37 AM on November 27th in Orange County, CA, the Orange County Police Department, or OCPD, received a call from Jenna Berkowitz reporting that a body had been discovered at 005 Mill Park Lane, Orange County, CA. The body belongs to one Kenny Yulter, a man in his late 40’s, employed at the local zoo, unmarried with no children. No criminal record and in good financial state.

Path of Puzzles 1

Hello everybody! Seth here with a new series that I’m really excited about! Each week in the series there will be some puzzles. Now, this sounds like Rage Inducing Puzzles, and you can play it like that, but in the answer section of each puzzle there will be a new puzzle you can go to next (like a world map in a video game or something.) Sometimes you will be directed to a puzzle that isn’t published yet. It will eventually be published, so please be patient for the next issue! (You won’t be directed to a puzzle number that will be published in 2 issues.) Without further ado, the first 10 puzzles. Start with Puzzle 1. 1. Red = 3, Orange = 6, Green = ??? 2. If you roll a die, how many spots are on it? 3. What is 100 x 98 x 96 x 94… x…

Order the Numbers 2

Hi everyone! Seth here with three more Order the Numbers puzzles. First, though, last week’s answers! (X can be any number within the range of the puzzle.) Easy: The only even numbers from 1-5 are 2 and 4, so it either has to be 2XXX4 or 4XXX2. The third clue says that three is second in line. So the four possible combinations are 23154, 23514, 43152, and 43512. The second clue says that three can’t be to the right of two, so that narrows down the options to 43152 and 43512. If one is to the left of five, the only possible order is 43152. Medium: Start with clue 3. The possible formations are (from the top, going clockwise) 2XX3XX or 3XX2XX. Continue with clue 5. If one is directly counterclockwise of 2, that changes our possible combinations to 2XX3X1 or 3X12XX. If 5 is across from 6, that changes…

Order the Numbers 1

Hello everyone! Seth here, with a new kind of puzzle- Order the Numbers! You must place numbers into a specific order so they follow specific rules, that differ by puzzle. Answers will be revealed in a subsequent issue. There will be 3 puzzles per issue- one Easy, one Medium, and one Hard. Easy is a nice warm-up, Medium is fairly challenging, and if you complete the Hard puzzle, you have exceptional logic skills. The answers will be revealed in the next issue. The Puzzles: Easy: Place the numbers 1-5 in a line so… Even numbers start and end the line. No number is to the right of the number one less than it. (i.e. 2 is not to the right of 1.) Three is second in line. One is to the left of five. Medium: Place the numbers 1-6 in the diagram below so… The triangle with the 4 in it…


Two Math Proofs That Will Blow Your Mind

Hi everybody! Seth here with another cool math article. I discovered these proofs recently, and thought that they were really cool! So, sit back and enjoy! So, here are two math proofs that are essentially proving the same thing. The first one proves 1=0, and the second one proves 4=5. Neither one of them is accurate, but they are seemingly possible. 1=0 Step 1. Set a variable a equal to a variable b. We have a=b. Step 2. Multiply both sides by a. We have a^2=ab. Step 3. Subtract b^2 from both sides. We have a^2-b^2=ab-b^2. Step 4. Factor both sides, using the difference of squares on the left. We have (a+b)(a-b)=b(a-b) Step 5. Divide both sides by (a-b). We have a+b=b. Step 6. Subtract b from both sides. We have a=0. Step 7. Divide both sides by a. We have 1=0. 4=5 Step 1. We know 2+2=4. Step 2….

Rage Inducing Puzzles #4

Welcome to Rage Inducing Puzzles #4! As previously mentioned, there are a whole ton of points up for grabs. And the answers to last week’s puzzles are… 000000. Since there are 1000, 100, and 10, you must add six zeros to the end. 12 pts Separate the weights into three groups of 9 each. Weigh two against each other. If one of them is heavier, then that is the group that the second weighing will be done to. If neither is, then the third group is. Split the mentioned group into 3 groups of 3 and repeat. For the final weighing, weigh the 3 weights individually. 18 pts Put one chip from the first group, two chips from the second group, etc. up to all ten from the last group, all at once. Subtract 225 grams from the result to find the number of the heavier group. 15 pts Telephone….
