Alright! You found it. She says "to" when she's handing me something. When I first heard it, I did think it was something either hard slang or insulting in some way (I didn't know her well the first time I met her which was on a boat in Alaska). It is really short for "tomar" or "toma" which means "take". They pronounce it like a nasal "ta" ("a" as in "father", but kind of closer to an 'o' sound, but it's harder to hear when you first hear it with an American ear).

I'm thinking it's easy, but then again, that might be a trick. Does it have to do with science?

Not sure if I'm going to really guess beyond this as I want to have a real clue as to what to do next time. Last time, my wife walked into the room to hand me something and gave me the idea. Seemed easy at the time, but forgot about my inability to be clear and the difficulty of the problem itself. Seemed good in my head though.

RE: Treasure hunt
Not intentionally tricky...just slightly cryptic.
Q: Does it have to do with science?
A: Not exclusively

Geuss I was just on at the right time I'm gonna be busy for half the day so I better pick a tough one....

nevermind got one that's good enough for here.

This pioneering zooligist took on a field of anthropology, but sadly what most of you will remember about her is purely "mist".

Someone should get it but if you don't I'll be back tonight.

The password is all lowercase, and both names. It will be first_last.

Hope you have enough clues with this.

I'm off for now, and nach_in I did like that you chose sappho. Glad the passwords are moving away from all men ~_^ =p


Seems everyone is enjoying treasure.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

RE: Treasure hunt
you have corrected it in the sig... you should leave it as a reminder that sometimes the treasure will mess up.. .plus if I mess up in the future I can point at it and say "see, someone else did it too" ;p

Yes, PM would have been wiser, my child. Big Grin
I corrected the spelling in the signature to be polite but if it happens again it will be a written warning!

Q: whose father?
A: It doesn't matter

Q: progeny?
A: Nope
