actually yeah. my bad, well it kept me amused on my bus jounery anyway, Upon re reading the 'RUELS' it looks like i didn't quite remeber them as well as i thought. Oh well, look and laugh at the boys stupidity. MWhahahahahahahaha. Okay I'm done with the strange insane laughter!

Am I being thick? (There's every possibility)
Or does your solve not solve anything unless you break just about every one of the rules?

(Sorry this is re: the above alternative solve, not the original)

Well I did it this way, just a quick solution following the ruels my first attempt at the puzzel and its probably completly wrong but hey well.
I mean Where are the loops In my solution. But nevertheless it is an alternative solution. Oh WELL!

Absolutely right, guys. Although having a card where, really, a 50/50 choice between 'yes' and/or 'no' might have yielded you the correct answer without actually doing the puzzle seems a tiny bit simplistic to me...

Clearly, though, this is pure prototype, and we have no idea what hellish new complexities will be(?) added to the card proper to bamboozle us further...

'Strange loops' are about the size of it though, seemingly...

I'm wondering how this solution will eventually be entered on the web. Unless there's more to the questions, you'll have to actually draw the lines on an applet or something.. or submit your answer as an image which will be manually verified..

hmm..

i was looking at life from a overcomplicated angle as usual ))

what i need are multi dimensional fractal puzzles -- hahaha

Wow, I actually may have gotten a solve, and even praise from tanner. Yay for me.
I was wondering what you were on about with all the fractal folding and the like.

My reading of the words is:

Is it possible to draw some (?) lines that intersect each of these [mathematical?] shapes?

The lines don't need to be straight, but they can't pass through other shapes, cross, or go outside the rectangle.
