1. Bah. Can't go.
(I am taking my LSAT on Saturday and thus will need sleep.)

Have fun, though!

2. I was still drunk when I took my ACTs.
Still got a 32.

You can do it!

4. OK, Mr. Smart Drunk Guy:
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 08:54 AM by eyesroll
A jeweler makes a single strand of beads by threading onto a
string in a single direction from a clasp a series of solid-colored
beads. Each bead is either green, orange, purple, red,
or yellow. The resulting strand satisfies the following
specifications:

If a purple bead is adjacent to a yellow bead, any bead that
immediately follows and any bead that immediately
precedes that pair must be red.

Any pair of beads adjacent to each other that are the
same color as each other must be green.

No orange bead can be adjacent to any red bead.
Any portion of the strand containing eight consecutive
beads must include at least one bead of each color.

If the strand has exactly eight beads, which one of the
following is an acceptable order, starting from the clasp,
for the eight beads?
(A) green, red, purple, yellow, red, orange, green,
purple
(B) orange, yellow, red, red, yellow, purple, red,
green
(C) purple, yellow, red, green, green, orange,
yellow, orange
(D) red, orange, red, yellow, purple, green, yellow,
green
(E) red, yellow, purple, red, green, red, green, green

If an orange bead is the fourth bead from the clasp,
which one of the following is a pair that could be the
second and third beads, respectively?
(A) green, orange
(B) green, red
(C) purple, purple
(D) yellow, green
(E) yellow, purple

If on an eight-bead strand the first, second, third, and
fourth beads from the clasp are red, yellow, green, and
red, respectively, then the fifth and sixth beads
CANNOT be
(A) green and orange, respectively
(B) green and purple, respectively
(C) purple and orange, respectively
(D) purple and yellow, respectively
(E) yellow and orange, respectively

9. Next time, try to do it in 8 minutes
(with three more problems in the section) instead of 28 hours.

10. Well, I just read your post before I replied.
Took me a couple of minutes. Did that count as one problem, or as three problems?

11. Three.
24 questions, divided into four puzzles, 35 minutes.

This puzzle's not too bad as all the info you need to solve it is right there. Only one dimension. No extrapolation. No, "if a then b, if b then not c, if d then not a or b, if g AND d then not c" and having to figure out other relationships. Those all take time to set up.

My first try, I got 7 of them right.
I'm up to about 20 most of the time now (on different tests). It's a lot easier when you're comfortable with the format.

(Sorry for the jack, Retro. But it's kicking your thread!)

5. Perhaps, RL. Perhaps.
I love "hooky" pop - and it's a great cause. I'll keep you posted.

7. I hope everyone who is a Cactus Club supporter has let the alderman
in the district know that he/she supports the place. There's a nasty little fight brewing about the club--owner wants to improve it, neighbors don't want him to do it--long story but I'll make a thread about it if anybody wants me to.

Anyhoo, see you there. :hi:
