Can we get this as our new botcheck system (in Off-topic)

QBOddBird January 6 2010 11:19 AM EST

I foresee this weeding out all bots!

Btw, correct me if I'm wrong, isn't the answer E?

Lochnivar January 6 2010 11:24 AM EST

... I can see this being REALLY popular as far as changes go ...

I mean, heck, people are always saying to me "Loch, why can't we have 3 dimensional logic problems that we must solve in 30 seconds as the bot checks here on CB?".

QBJohnnywas January 6 2010 11:25 AM EST

I've a headache just thinking about it...

And you have to look for the one that CAN'T be made, o m g. lol

ScY January 6 2010 11:43 AM EST

lol what website had that on it?

IndependenZ January 6 2010 11:46 AM EST

Oh my... I don't even want to wrap my poor mind around that. Ugh!

looks like rapidshare

QBRanger January 6 2010 11:52 AM EST

And let us also with this botcheck go back to the old system of if you fail one, your character gets reset!

The 3d object or the paypal link? :)

[P]Mitt January 6 2010 11:55 AM EST

No, I'm pretty sure it's C

The bottom face doesn't show up anywhere on the unfolded pattern

Let's do this!

bartjan January 6 2010 11:58 AM EST

I'd vote for 'A'.

AdminNightStrike January 6 2010 12:01 PM EST

The bottom face of C is in the very top pentagon (the one that's on a horizontal plane by itself).

sebidach [The Forgehood] January 6 2010 12:03 PM EST

@NightStrike: The half-circle in the white is missing.

sebidach [The Forgehood] January 6 2010 12:10 PM EST

I believe this is a joke about Rapidshares bot-checks such as the unsolvable cats? ;)

AdminNightStrike January 6 2010 12:10 PM EST

It's in the lower left corner of the face...

sebidach [The Forgehood] January 6 2010 12:17 PM EST

C contains an "opening" and a "terminating" half circle at the white line, while the unfolded piece only has the "opening".

AdminShade January 6 2010 12:24 PM EST

So, what happens when you _are_ human and _can_ read very well, but are _terribly bad_ in these kind of logical 3d puzzles?


Zenai January 6 2010 12:28 PM EST

ummmm let's not and say we never heard of it!

I vote for "E" as well!

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 6 2010 12:39 PM EST

I could do this but not in 30 seconds. Even in 1 minute the stress would kill me.

Also I vote C, thou not 100% I am pretty sure its not E.
for some reason I can't be 100% sure my brain does not work so well upside down and in 3 dimensions as fast as I would like it to...YET!

TheHatchetman January 6 2010 12:43 PM EST

I can see where a lot of negativity would arise here... But look on the flipside of things...

How often do you process and answer a botcheck and spend another couple BA before your conscious mind picks up on what the botcheck said? If we got like that with these... wow...

AdminNightStrike January 6 2010 12:44 PM EST

C contains an "opening" and a "terminating" half circle at the white line, while the unfolded piece only has the "opening".

Ah, you are right!

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] January 6 2010 12:46 PM EST

Both A and C don't match at least as far as I can tell.

Wraithlin January 6 2010 1:01 PM EST

I like when you get a bot check and just fat finger it and screw up the first one, then you get a tough one that you're 50/50 on and guess incorrectly.

Yay! 1 hour with no CB.

Zenai January 6 2010 1:10 PM EST


I change my answer to "F"!

Sometimes the answer is simple and we just make it

Wraithlin January 6 2010 1:13 PM EST

BTW A matches fine Nem, and C is the correct answer.

There are no pentagons with 3 "arrowheads" on the same face, much less a light green/black/white combo one, like there is on the bottom face of C.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 6 2010 2:54 PM EST

let us just make everyone's year and tie this to the drop system! ; )
