As I was saying earlier...I saw this fish on ice in the window of a Santiago restaurant. I can finally download (or upload) the picture now of this "flat" guy. Not only would you be picking bones out of your meal, but you'd be picking teeth out, as well!

First thing: rotate the image. Second: ignore it and turn up the heating. Pour a glass of something. Anything. Watch it through the window. Have a snooze. Buy a device that will wake you when the weather improves. Try to imitate hibernatory creatures.View attachment 57452
Kirkie, I love how you chose to connect the dots in this post. It painted the picture you wanted us to see...clever, and in such a "one of a kind" way!

Looks like it could be the angler fish (Lophius piscatorius ). A very fine fish that makes a very delicious meal (no bones or teeth :p )

I just googled, similar but the angler is more spherical shaped. My guy is flat as a pancake...maybe they pounded him down to eliminate the "scare" factor!

Saw this ad in a mag on my flight. Van Gogh lopped off his own ear...just like BB did. I wonder if they were both lapping up this same powerful French drink when they did it...ouch!

That's better, NYC. I happened to see "caption" and had no clue.😉 Love this!

Edit- On a second look it seems we only need up to a dozen of those flags for 2019.😐
For Pete’s sake.

Where’s Pete?

I miss his good mornings.

Yes, where is he? I miss his flowers and all things calming and lovely that he gives us.

Another new avatar for you...you are going into chameleon mode lately!

I had to give this a sad face "like". It's unfair. How could you NYC? Brazil is there twice and Scotland three times. Please edit and resubmit. 😈
Couldn’t see two Brazilian and three Scottish flags (that’s the first time Scotland will beat Brazil 3-2) but I could see two Finnish flags!

Yep, 40. Seeing the other answers though has me a bit confused. I will say though, if it's not a "trick" question, the answer SHOULD be 40. On the other hand, NYC is one sneaky lady!

One answer to NYC's puzzle is 96 but there could be plenty more correct answers.

Don't use the plus sign. Instead think: there is some function (equation) f such that f(1,4)=5, etc. Find the function and then plug in 8 and 11.

f(a,b) = a * (b + 1)

On a related note, here is a 9 minute film, a satire with a twist ending, about a teacher correcting a student's answer of 22 to the question of what is 2+2

Brilliant...I loved this movie! Now I've learned that there are multiple answers to the same math question!😂

Don’t know Annette...but we’ve all got different answers. 😂😂
That's great BB, because I don't even understand the question, let alone work out the answer!!
I was never any good at maths!
In fact, I was so bad, they wouldn't even let me take the exam!!

I think you are mistaking Scotland's white X on blue with Finland's blue cross on white.

Brazil 1: North of UK, 2 away.
Brazil 2: South of Australia.
Scotland 1: Southeast of Canada.
Scotland 2: Northeast of UK, 2 away.
Scotland 3: UK (Look at it. It's Scotland's flag that someone defaced by trying to cross and X it out in white and red. Really.)
