New Scientist claims that the the answer is the blue squares.

New Scientist does not explain this; and we do not have the slightest idea.

The red design in the centre is the odd one out. The others are all in pairs of equals and pairs of opposites. ET

Hi, it's ET back again. I have taken a closer look and realized that it is not just a matter of design and colour. It is also a matter of colour TONE. I can see three different blue colour tones and two different red tones. Which means that the designs are in pairs of equal designs with opposite colours of same tone, and opposite designs of equal colour and colour tone. In short the journal is right. ET

Here is an explanation for the choice of the blue squares in the first question…There is a predominance of channels, and domes; secondary is color

1 set of red channels

2 sets of blue domes

3 sets of blue channels

Of the three sets left over the blue set of squares is left as the other two items are red. So the answer becomes the blue squares!!

Anonymous said...

The designs are in sets of three. One is diagonal of three reds. One is a half circle (clockwise) of blues. One is the opposite diagonal, leaving the blue squares as odd.

Bingo said...

The red center: the reason is that it is the only one with red curves on top. (all other combos of blue/ red and curve/ straight /open on top, bottom, and side are not unique)

... oops, correction. The answer is bottom-red-right. Reason: It is only red one with nothing on the left side.

The centre pattern is the odd one out. It's the only one not on the edge. Moreover, it's the oddest of the odd: there's an odd number of arches, whereas the others are even; the arches are the only curvilinear figures; and the oddest of the arches is the red one.


2. Which is the more desirable, if one believes in justice and compassion:

A. We should promote the greatest happiness of the greatest number.

B. We should promote the greatest happiness of every individual.

This is the most important question in the quiz.

Should we try to promote the greatest happiness of the greatest number by bombing innocent kids in Dresden or shooting an innocent Brazilian on the London tube or carrying out acts of false flag terrorism which give us an excuse to invade Cuba?

The correct answer is B - we should promote the greatest happiness of every individual, if we believe in justice and compassion.

Anonymous said...

B is correct.

Aggregate happiness is meaningless.

Only individual happiness has direct meaning.

Justice and compassion are achieved when any one soul would be happy to have done unto it what is done to any other soul.

Bingo said:

For the greatest number, else you waste time seeking happiness for the criminals.

We understand the point that Bingo is making.

But we worry about Dresden and Hiroshima, for example.

Vietnam - victim of the American military

Imagine you are a little kid maimed in an American false flag terror operation in Vietnam.

You might well say to the Americans that

(a) you understand that a lot of Americans are made happy by the deaths of little yellow people

(b) but, you have been treated unfairly

(c) and, your injuries have not helped the USA win the war in Vietnam.

A huge number of people would have been made happy when Mr Megrahi was found guilty of causing the Lockerbie bombing.

But is it just to punish people people using fake evidence, such as a stolen 'timer'?

Genuine criminals may need to be locked up.

But, if you believe in justice and compassion, you will not want them treated like the prisoners in the Russian gulags or Nazi concentration camps.

3. John Smith was born on 25 December, and yet his birthday is always in the summer. Explain how this is possible.

su got it right when she said...

John Smith is in the southern hemisphere.

Bingo said...

John Smith lives in the southern hemisphere.

Anonymous said...

John Smith is an antipodean.

4. How many months have 30 days?

11 months have 30 days.

We got caught out on this one.

Bingo got it right when he said...

All months except Feb.

Anonymous said...

All of them except February. (Although some have the 30 and an extra one.)

5. Which of these (left or right) is Lt, Colonel Dudley Clarke of MI6?

kenny's sideshow got it correct when he said...

Both photos are of Dudley, a snappy cross dresser.

Bingo said...

Looks like the same guy in drag?

Anonymous said...

Knowing British intel, I'd say both.

Another Anonymous said...

Both are Lt col Clark

6. Why does blog post (A) get more views than than blog post (B)?

A. USA SEEKS CONTROL OF INDONESIA?

B. FASCIST TERRORISM IN EUROPE

Blogger 'stats' show that an enormous number of people, searching for pictures of Tiara Lestari, have come to our post 'USA SEEKS CONTROL OF INDONESIA', because it contains pictures of the famous Indonesian model.

Another of our popular posts is entitled Hot North African Sex

Our post on Fascist Terrorism in Europe has no 'sexy' pictures.

Anonymous has a very good answer...

B is more often passed over as it does not mesh with the standard worldview, and hence is immediately rejected as not worth reading.

Bingo makes an interesting point...

Less well-known hence more interesting to westerners, plus Indonesian views.

7.

Karkare.

Police chief Hemant Karkare, who was killed in the 2009 Mumbai attacks, had discovered that Lt.Col. Srikant Purohit, of Indian military intelligence, had got 60 kg of RDX explosive from government supplies for use in the terrorist attack on the Samjhauta Express train in February 2007. So, did elements of the Indian government have a motive for killing Karkare?

Anonymous got it exactly right when saying:

Yes.

But remember there's government and there's government.

Often the elected government has little idea of the activities of the secret government, the intelocracy.

And another anonymous correctly stated:

Yes they had a motive; it is quite obvious now

John Smith whose birthday is always in summer even though it is in december is because he is in the southern hemisphere.

and compassion far more vital than justice.
to a point and then justice becomes the sweeter.

6) A gets more views bcos indonesia has higher population than EU, ppl in indonesia are more politically conscious and the phrase "usa seeks..." sounds more credible to most ppl.

7) yes they had a motive, it is quite obvious now

I'm very clever so I got them all right. And what with being very well adjusted and not needing anyone's approval I shan't bother submitting my answers here. Just take it as read.

Very good. Off I go to find some other place where I shall inevitably be right once more. In some ways being right all the time is a burden but when you're as clever and fortunate as I am one finds a way to carry on. Bless you all.

Could I suggest that the reason for the blue squares in being the answer the lines themselves appear (to me)to be thinner than all the other groups.

classic Nobs!

what a great idea for a post Aan.

"because it contains pictures of the famous Indonesian model"

This was one of the late Postman Patel's favourite little tricks. He'd shamelessly find any excuse to stick a picture of some Internet 'bait' in his posts wherever and whenever possible

Bless his cotton socks

May I take a leaf out of Mark Regev's book and declare myself vindicated? And sure I didn't burn women and children alive with illegal weapons but it's all the same thing when you're as right as Me and Mark are.

Speaking of which (sort of but not really), how about them 'israeli cocks'? That right there is my number one search item and visited story. Which is interesting isn't it? Or dull as dishwater, it's one of those two thing. What's sad is that I get hardly any visitors from Muslim countries but what I do get are looking for Israeli cocks.

But then the thought occurred to me that perhaps my cock-seeking visitors from Iran etc. are in fact Israelis. It's possible. To that end I've been vaguely thinking about putting a couple of those click-button utility thingies on that page to figure out who these people are. Perhaps something like this:

a) Jewish
b) not Jewish

a) Israeli
b) not Israeli

a) gay male
b) straight male
c) gay female
d) straight female

a) pitcher
b) catcher

Somehow I suspect that it would be all a's. Except for the last one perhaps. Who knows how that all works? Not me. But you never know... stranger things have happened at sea (yes, yes, rum, sodomy, and the lash, and all that...). Thus it is possible that there's a ton of Arabs out there all dreaming of having an Israeli cock jammed up their clacker. Who knows?
