    FIRST



    Edit: Woah, first time being on the first page let alone being first!

    I was reading about Thog in a discusion when my "comic sences" started tingling. I looked and BOOM i went to check if anyone had replied and noone had!

    and I quote "He shoots, he scores!"



    lol "the crazy bitch shot me!"



    Yo, i had it at like a minute after the comic was put up but then my post got deleted...... I LOVE YOU CTRL+C, CTRL+V!


    awsome comic by the way.

    the one-shot comics lately are great. really great.

    Now that's an easy solution to the test.
    I wonder what the next will be about...?

    Nice one, I always liked that puzzle. My quandary was always why adventurer always trusted random signs.. So when I put this puzzle in a dungeon the sign lied, both entities (golems) lied, and there was no safe passage :)

    "Don't bite me!" LOL!

    This is the first time Haley has done anything in ages!

    Does anyone remember that she still has some secret about which even V doesn't know? Not to mention that she apparently still can't speak normally.

    Woot! Still first page! :P

    For anybody who wants the real solution to the puzzle, you would just ask each person what direction the other one would say. Both would point to wrong path.

    LOL, this was almost as good as when the LG knocked off the Potter knock-off. Brilliant unorthodox way to solve it, though the green one ought to have kept quiet to keep it from being so blatantly obvious.

    So now the Test of the Body was solved by the Mind and the Test of the Mind was solved by Bodily harm. :D I wonder if someone's going to solve the Test of the Heart with their stomach. :P

    Hehehe, just goes to show: an original trial is more fun to play, but an original solution is more funny to read!

    Edit: Anyone happen to know the origin of this puzzle, or even know if this fact is known at all?

    I have to echo Belkar's statement here-- THAT WAS AWESOME! Gotta dig Belkar's approval (which doesn't fill Haley with shame), Haley's self-satisfied raspberry-blowing, and Vaarsuvius' annoyance at Haley's tactic.

    Haley's comet arrow was completely called for right there, in my opinion at least. Do you have any idea how often I have been forced to solve that stupid riddle?
