You like logic puzzles? Go do this one! (See below) and please comment below because I'm confused about something (see comments)

From: William Hudson
Subject: Reminder: HCI/UX-Related Logic Puzzle

I'm still desperate for responses to this logic puzzle (I want to compare the results to a different form of the same puzzle, that had 200,000 responses!).

So if you haven't done so already, please consider spending a few minutes trying to solve it. It's good for your brain :)

Please distribute widely. I will share the results and their implications for HCI and User Experience.

I'm not sure what "Each is colored on one face either red or blue". Does this mean:

1. Each block has one colored face that is either red or blue and the others are neither (they're natural grain wood or black or something)
2. Each block has a red face, there's another face that is blue, & the others are neither
3. Each face of block B is either red or blue

Maybe none of those really matter. My friend Andrew did this & his answer was different from mine.

I originally said I'd have to know the color of block B. I wonder what kind of faulty logic I have for saying that.

Andrews reasoning was that "the red-or-blue color for B is under A or over C to be non-visible, but it has to be either red or blue, no? So it's either top-down red-red-blue or red-blue-blue," either of which results in a red directly over a blue, making the answer "yes".

I wasn't sure it had to be either red or blue. Do you think that is assumed?

To me it was more like "I have three citrus fruits in a row, lemon on top, lime on the bottom, is the middle one a lime or a lemon?" It doesn't SAY there might be oranges or strawberries, but I said I couldn't rule the possibility out until I knew if the middle fruit was yellow or green.

I must say, even talking through all this illustrates a LOT to me about how I think.

I was just listening to Fresh Air (NPR) interview with Maggie Smith. She said something that reminded me of a few weeks back, when the world was all excited about the "Friends" reunion, but then they were bummed that Matthew Perry wasn't going to be there (for you, when the rain starts to fall...).

He was in London for "The End of Longing", a play he wrote & has been starring in on the West End since early February. (Mayrr even the first play he's written, I can't recall for sure.)

Maggie Smith missed the Oscars ceremony where she won her first Oscar, & her only one for Best Actress, in 1970. Why? "I was opening in a play at the National Theatre, it was the first night, and Sir Laurence (Olivier) wouldn't let me go. ... Well, quite rightly! I mean, you can't just abandon a whole production."

Consummate professional. And I understand Perry's play got good reviews.

I'd like to pick a lawyer's brain for a minute -- referral to a good book or website would also be welcome, since I can't pay you -- about estates for work. I'm trying to understand what I think is a legal point, but I'm not even sure it is because I don't know how they work.

Someone told me that it's no longer fashion to include the years you held a job on your CV when you list each position. Is this your experience, recent job hunters?

Yesterday, the weather forecase said Saturday will feel like -20 degrees F here, so please, stay warm, Pennsylvanians!
Pennsylvania officials are urging everyone to take extra precautions in the coming days to prevent serious health issues as an arctic front is poised to bring frigid temperatures and dangerous wind chills of up to -30 degrees to some areas of the commonwealth beginning Friday and lasting throughout the weekend.

Hey +Pittsburgh Pirates -- my friend +Trevor Schadt pointed this out to me. It sounds like an awesome idea! I especially like that it's both for Father's Day & Mother's Day, with so many single-parent households. 💕
 
Announcing a special event at OPACY on both Mother's Day & Father's Day: Catch on the Field! http://atmlb.com/23Eus2E

Metformin users: I just learned that if you get an MRI or scan, make sure you tell them you’re on Metformin b/c they can’t use contrast dye. I just learned from the pharmacist yesterday, & I want sure it was widely known.

Is there an expiration date on band name?

I like a band that broke up in the 1990s & someone new is using the same name now. The Spotify record is messed up, showing all releases from both under one pic (the old one).

Apparently they both some the name from a literary character, so it's not something totally unique like "The Alan Parsons Project".

But it looks like my guys are getting back together for at least one project, & I'm wondering now if they could put it out under the old name or if that's been co-opted by the new band or what....
