O.K. For those of you tracking along and uncovering "the daBlogi Code"--including my own 4 darling children and at least one their friends (Hi, Maddie!)--I hope you're not too frustrated with the difficulty of that previous clue yesterday. It WAS a bit misleading, but HEY, no one said this was going to be easy.
I totally understand if you feel like giving up.
I won't even try to make you feel bad if you do, moron.
So far we've found some of Leonardo daBlogi's clues hidden in works of art, in eyeball-straining visual puzzles and in grammar-loving nerd-writing.
This next clue is a MATH puzzle, and it's only hard if you think it is.
Clue # 4
Twenty-one bloggers were online in the small town of Blogsville at 11:02 p.m. Twelve were leaving comments at Blogger #1's blog. Six were leaving comments at Blogger #2's blog. Three were shopping for salad tongs on eBay.
At the same time, a train left Blogsville traveling west toward Dotcomsburg at the speed of 60 m.p.h.
At that exact moment, another train left Dotcomsburg traveling east toward Blogsville at the same speed...ON THE SAME TRACKS.
16 were injured in the trainwreck that occured at 11:32. Half of the inured had broken bones, and half of THOSE had multiple fractures, and half of THOSE also ruined expensive designer shoes.
All but eleven of the bloggers had logged off and were in bed when the accident occured.
How many of the original Blogsville bloggers were still online at the time of the wreck?
Spell that number. Those letters will be added to the letters from the previous clue.
You're starting to get close to solving...
...the daBlogi Code.
