QUIZ ITEM 4 : THE TORTURE RACK ( for the mind)!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

 

Ranzee really, really found the last item too easy! His fellow workers asked me to make the next item a "tad" harder since all week he was "bragging" about his skiing skills and his perceptual skills!

 

This one is for you ranzee! Also in your home city, Calgary there is another fellow who knows ski tools well since he is in the "business",,,have fun with this!

 

Stekan,,,well your observant mind will be "puzzled" by this one,,,but I am sure you will get it,,,,,,

 

Rare is the person who has seen this one on the slopes,,,,even if it is ever present!

 

Rarer is  the person who understands how this item works!

 

It really really makes you ski better, faster with more confidence!

 

Enough said. Here is item 4!

 

Please remember,,,your answer via messages and ONE answer please!

Enjoy the quiz above all!

No quick guess coming from me.  It doesn't look familiar, but it is probably part of something that is.

Do you mean we are only allowed one message and one answer, meaning that if we guess and get it wrong we are out of the race

(not that it matters to me, as I didn't remember the first one until I saw the answer)?

You have seen it,,,if that bottom "sentence' in your space is correct.

 

Take your time! Look around!

 

Go to ski shops!

 

You will see it!

Yes,,if you read past rules,,I did mention to avoid the "shotgun" answer technique!

 

It makes you a  more "critical" thinker!

 

You must take out the "obvious" errors,,,,,the select best possible answer from clues and your experience as a skier!

 

One answer per person in race!  There are now 8 candidates left!

First,

 

Thank you, for your positive answers and unique answers.

 

Amazing what you all know,,and share as a group. You are special.

 

So far three answers and three rejects! Sorry.

 

I hope at least ,,the questions  ( items)  have made you think and discover new  "aspects" of skiing!

 

What was "remarkable" is ,,,,,how positive you all are! Not one negative answer or "crude" comment ! Rare on an Internet site! That is a reflection on the site administrators and the participants.

 

A small remark to show how small the world is.

 

Got a "message" from a ski shop owner who was asking me a favor!

 

Seems a friend of his was doing a "contest" and needed an answer in regards to ski equipment. This owner could not help,,,,,so he turned to me,,,,,,,, since he knew I was a ski "fanatic" !

Guess what he sent me? The picture you see above,, in this posting!

 

Small world!

 

Have fun passing the picture around,,,,,

 

The answer begins in Italy!

 

Respectfully,

Vist

Good luck!

Hey, if everyone  misses #4 is the contest over, or does it just skip on to #5 like #4 never happened?

The  "pass score" was five!

 

Let us see how others do!

 

I really think ramzee is like a British "Bull Dog" and will get it at end!!!!

Let's see if anyone can get this.  Sometimes Vist puts quotes around the words that are also hints.  But, sometimes the words in quotes aren't hints either,

Quote:
"tad"
"bragging"
"business"
"puzzled"
"shotgun"
"pass score"
"Bull Dog"

Take your time! Look around!

 

Go to ski shops!

 

You will see it!

 

 

Good luck.  I really hope someone get this.

What can I say????

 

I wanted so much to help you all pass the time away before the snow! In short make you happy!

 

Please do not be sad! Think of all the fun, learning you have done!

 

Yes deadline is Tuesday!

 

On the next day I will post answer to this "mind bender" and all of you will say,,,,,"of course,,,,I saw that"   Now you will say, "Not only I saw that,,but now I know that,,,,,,,,,,," !

Then I dare you to go into a ski shop and ask a sales person to explain  that,,,,,,,,, They will not be able to!  You will!

 

Yes I did drop some hints!

 

Its all in the name!

 

Respectfully,

Vist

We have one correct answer!

 

Collectively you are much more "powerful"!

One person gave away a great "hint" ! It sparked the neurons in someone's head.

 

I am sure he/she is enjoying reading all your comments now!

 

So close,,,yet so far!

 

Tuesday deadline ramzee,,,,,Since you are in Calgary,,contact Lou,,,,,,he might help you!!!!
