It is time again to embark upon another journey deep into the mysterious regions of the Quixotic Quantum Quandary. Today we have something quite easy to forget, to let go un-noticed until some issue should arise. Then, and only then does the little fellow get the attention that he craves, like a bee setting forth to defend the hive.
Before we get too far into this week’s mystery, let’s take a minute to discuss last week’s muddled and befuddled quandary. I am using my
infinite infinitesimal powers to award the ‘Closest Guess – Good Try!’ award to Mr. Slow_Joe_Crow for going with concrete saw. It was in fact a full size gas powered Craftsman edger, much like the one you see below. I just finished moving it with me for the umpteenth time, even though the shaft for the blade (engaged by that v-belt and spring) has sheared off and is now basically useless. But the engine has a horizontal output shaft to a v-belt, and would make a great little go kart engine or some such!
As it turned out, there have been a great many technologies that have smallified over time, and as mentioned by several commenters, ‘smaller’ and ‘larger’ can be very relative terms. Hopefully good fun was had all around, and on to the next!
Take a look at these crisp clear images and see if you can deduce the solution. I know having an unsolved Quandary can make for an intense week, and perhaps you have gotten burned out. Re-vitalize yourself, it only takes a minute, so you don’t leave us all in the dark, hoping for an answer.
As always, if any of you out there in internet-land have some mysterious morsels that you would like to see sent up Quandary style, please send some photos my way! Just email HycoSpeed@gmail.com and throw Q³ in the subject line so I’ll see it. And if you are having troubles today, your hint is but a click away.
