Having seen how the first riddle is solved, all I can say is it's simply amazing. Wikipedia lists the references and places involved. Purpose? Funding? Who is/are behind this? Total mystery...
Start by doing Sudoku, in pen, without making notes... One thing leads to another.

Re: Hobbies anyone?

I was actually thinking Jamaica or someone else would open a new thread, a chaotic one. Cicadas, multiverse theories, aliens, Egyptian gods, Sumerian creation legends, ...maybe movies like Prometheus, interstellar too.

My hobby is knife fighting. Fencing with knives against your opponent can relax after hardworking.
Yes. especially certain parts of your body after you've been hit.

A sword used in fencing is called a foil.

Knife fighting suggests something completely different.

Lol, the next posts will deal with you being sent to an anger management course or lectured on anti-social behaviours... Have fun.

Congrats. A few years ago I took to flying RC foam airplane models only to realise this is a hobby targeted to the 65+ crowd :-) I'm getting older faster than I thought. It was a bit for my own pleasure and a bit to make something together with my kids. They started with me but then found drone FPV "free-style" much more interesting.

My first ever "flying" RC was a DJI Phamtom 1. It was really easy to fly. Bought a DJI Inspire 1 a few months later. Then new drone rules made it pretty much impossible to fly without getting attention (even over a lake). So sold the Inspire and still have the Phantom 1 as a memorabilia as it was the first flying toy I ever owned.

I am really digging the "Crawler" hobby though. Its really entertaining

maybe he is knife fighting and not fencing?

a foil is just one type used in fencing. common now are: foil, epee and sabre.

Thanks for putting me right. The only fencing I have done is down the edge of a garden.
