Thumbs up Close enough

Well, Robert, the original answer was a coffin, but I'd say your answer is close enough. You are on a roll these days.

Talking Seeing IS Believing

All right, you guys have thus far failed to identify the perpetrator of a 118 year old crime, so it's obvious you all need a little practice at catching your man.

Have a close look at the animation below, counting the men before and after the move. WHERE does the extra man come from - and go?

Lightbulb Calling All Wordsmiths

There is a common English word that is nine letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word from nine letters right down to a single letter. What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing one letter at a time?

Note: There is more than one acceptable solution.

Question OK, try this one then

Well, the last contest was a dud, so here we go again.

How many birds can you find in the picture below?

Exclamation And we have a winner

Hard to believe, but Howard is correct; there are seven boids in the picture posted.

Well, that didn't take long.

Exclamation

I certainly hope that the larger of those birds doesn't find my car. I took it through the car wash last weekend and that would be devistating.

Hope I'm not treading on Tim's toes here :

A number can be specified in two ways, e.g. the number 1 000 000 can be written as "one million". Likewise 1 260 000 can also be written "one million two hundred and sixty thousand."

Can anyone give the smallest number not specifiable in less than eleven words?

Robert
