The Sunday Puzzle

ixThought that you might enjoy a puzzle to help pass the time today. The image on the left shows the number 9 in Roman numerals.

Your task is to draw one single continuous line and turn this into a 6. Feel free to say if you have solved it and how long it took you, but no giving the answer. I will reveal the solution, and source, on Monday. Enjoy.

Quick Update: Someone has just emailed me another solution, so there are TWO ways of solving the puzzle.

The answer to this puzzle, and 100 others,  can be found in a new kindle ebook called PUZZLED, and is available in the UK here and USA here.

Thought experiment…..

Imagine that you have an 18 year old teenage son (if you do actually have one, this won’t be especially hard) and he stole a bottle of water from a shop during the riots.  You know that if you take him to the police he will be charged and convicted.  There is no way that the police will find out about his behaviour unless you take him in.

Would you take him to the police?  Vote now!
