Alan: I found a programmer who is willing to create simple iOS and Android apps for your puzzle videos. There's no charge to you so long as the apps are distributed for free, and no matter what you'll keep full ownership & control of your puzzles. He's doing it just to get some experience with Android (he normally writes iOS apps). Please contact me by email so we can work out the details.

Nicely done, including the very careful credits and legal notices at the end. I wonder if it will get a takedown notice anyway when some copyright bot scans it.

I recognize the music from the video game "Ski Safari". Does that song have a name?

I recognize those books! The yellow one is a statistics textbook that I started to write, entitled "Simpson's Paradox". There are hundreds of words on every page except the last one, on which I simply wrote "I give up!" in frustration. The blue one is a completely blank diary that I never filled out because I was too busy with "Simpson's Paradox". I tore out the last page of that dreaded yellow book, and then inserted it into the blue diary, to explain why there are no other diary entries. As for the average word counts, obviously the average number of words in both books combined is the same, so the individual averages cannot both increase (or both decrease). That would be illogical and unscientific! I have almost written a book on statistics, so I can assure you that the field is very intuitive once you pass the class with a B- or better (and I would've gotten a solid B if I wasn't late for the final exam, but the lottery jackpot was unusually high that day, so I had to stop on the way to statistics class to buy extra tickets).

Another excellent little puzzle! Have you considered collecting all of these into an app, along with some drawing tools & such to help users figure things out within the app? It might also work as a Mathematica plugin.

+AlanKey86 Good news!  I found an experienced programmer who is willing to develop an app to accompany your puzzle videos.  He's willing to do it all for free, so long as the app is free.  You'll keep full control over the videos and puzzle content.  The app itself would probably be under an open-source license if that's alright with you.  Please contact me by email so that we can settle the details.  My plan is to start by releasing an extremely basic app that merely provides a nice list of the existing videos and solutions, with a mechanism to notify the user when a new puzzle video is posted (the YouTube notifications have never worked that well for me).  From there we can add more features like a scratchpad area, interactive puzzles, and links to a discussion forum, but let's get started with the basics and see how well it's received.  Again, please contact me by email to settle the details, and we can get started right away.

Many years ago, my oldest sister came into the possession of an orphaned kitten that we named "Mono", because he was the only survivor of his litter.  He was near death from starvation.  All five kids took turns feeding the kitten every couple of hours, day and night.  He recovered, and lived (if I recall correctly) to be almost 20 years old.

I see Alex taking pictures of the teams. No audio. Can somebody move the camera so that us remote folks can see some of the demos?

(Note: the location has changed from 2510 s. 48th St. to 122 S. Antelope Valley Parkway) This is my preferred auto service station. I've been in Lincoln since 1979, and over the years have gone to several different places. I've never had a truly horrible auto-repair experience anywhere in Lincoln (except the one time that Sears forgot to tighten the bolts on a new tire). H & S, however, is my favorite of the bunch. They really do take the "honest" approach seriously. On several occasions they could have easily talked me into a more expensive repair, but instead told me (correctly) that I could get by with less money using a different approach. They're human -- one time they guessed that my old van would *probably* survive a trip to Texas, but it died halfway through Oklahoma. Nobody can be sure of that sort of thing, however, so I don't hold it against them. H&S is still my favorite auto repair shop, and I strongly recommend them.

I'm surprised that another reviewer was disappointed in Dr. Schneider. He's been our family's primary physician for something like 20 years (probably more). We started going to him when my wife had a persistent cough, and Dr. Schneider was the first physician to correctly diagnose and finally fix the real problem. I don't know the details of the event which triggered the one negative review, but I can personally vouch that Dr. Schneider has been pretty good for us over the last couple of decades.

We got a flat tire in the middle of a long road trip, and hobbled into Eagle Tire only because it was the closest shop we could find. When an out-of-towner needs car service in a hurry, they're pretty vulnerable to being overcharged, but Eagle fixed the tire quickly, helped us get the spare put away, and only charged us $19.25, which I guess is the standard rate. We left a $5 tip.
