I think they do have one. Contains a nice collection of prisioner made "shivs" and "shanks". Good Stuff.

So was private the answer? Seems like it would work.

Yes it is something of a toboggan run at times. They are doing the Yorktown area now. Looks like a few more years to get three lanes on each side. Is a comfortable three lanes each way where I am.

Attend Coinvention II? Let's see about getting down to NYC on a Saturday afternoon for a visit this summer. Oh...now I remember, I have do get an article finished for a certain publisher. Tempted to offer lessons in exchange for some photoshop work.

I knew as soon as I wrote about wanting to visit the museum I was opening myself up to be the butt of some jokes (pun intended). Thanks for keeping it clean.
I'm not sure if Private is correct especially since Stan the Man is questioning the clue.

Private isn't the answer, I'm afraid, but good guess. Stan has picked up on the missing letter theme (which was also the trap of the second part - the letters imply that it is missing the letter "e" for CANTEEN)

Just one letter is missing.

Are we in room 314? 314 painted on a glass (clear) door would
look like the word PIE when viewed from the other side.

Ooooops! I see Stephen has provided another clue. A missing letter, eh?

Very good and logical guess. 314 could be indicated by PIE, but sadly not here.

Great Guess Stan.

Vandy-
Interesting site. I'll have to check it out in person.
One of the Shivs looks as if it would be ideal for the paddle move. Maybe we could market the color changing Shiv for 3 packs of cigarettes.

The sing-sing version of the color changing shivs dosen't require a paddle move. It's just "hey look at this intresting home made knife" "It's silver right? But now look, I simply push the blade in to your gut and "Voila'" it turns red!!"

This really kills em'.

Sorry, back to the puzzle guys.

There is a method in mathematics called proof by tableaux, where one decomposes a statement into a collection of sub-statements which either terminate in contradictions or themselves denote a world where the statements can be true. The other side of the method implied here is to prove only one such world can exist. Failure to provide both parts of the solution (existence and uniqueness) amount to leaving loose ends Smile and hence the bathroom humor.

Not that there is anything bad about bathrooms. The tile (lack of) patterns can be most inspiring.

I've been thinking (and thinking and thinking and...) about this one,
and haven't gotten anywhere.

Is this a rebus with a missing letter? I'm thinking about something
along the lines of

P.C. Office = P (C "off" ICE) = P I E
(Take the "C" off of "ICE" and you're left
with "I E".)

It is a rebus with a missing letter. Not PC Office (clever, though)

One letter is missing, as I said before.

Clue:

If the letters used weren't "P", "I" and "E", but "P", "L", "A" and "E" instead, the solution would still be the same.

Reminder of another clue that seems to have been missed: I have no idea what is behind the door (there is a reason)

No, it isn't a toilet. Remember, the question is what the sign means, not what is behind the door.

Anybody given any thought as to my additional clue of the letters "P", "L", "A" and "E" giving the same solution?
