Question 7's?

Postby opal611 » Wed Nov 01, 2006 7:54 am

Just a clarification...I know that Questions 1 through 6 are easily googleable and we are on the honor system. But since question 7 is meant to be un-googleable, I'm unclear of the rules for that question. Are we allowed/expected to try and Google to find hints to the answers? I know we can't find the answer itself just by googling...but a good detective needs some evidence! Just double checking. We'll play within the rules set forth. :)

Thanks,

Ryan

Question Sevens are also meant to be done "freehand" (no Google, no books, etc.) as well, since a single Google search won't solve them, but an hour of Internet research would usually do the trick.

They are designed to be hard, but gettable, with only top-of-your-head knowledge.

Sounds good...I'll stick with the brain then. :)
