    I've been researching shipwrecks off the coast of Oregon and Washington. Something that caught my attention was the theme of things which have faces. Here's a picture of a rock with a face:

    I'm looking forwards to the new season of Psych and spotting the easter egg pinapple.

    This gives me an idea, what if Roy Dodge is using his masterful deductive skills to impersonate a psychic? Is there a comprehensive listing of psychics in Washington?

    Okay, reverse engineeringwise (although speculative) I'm thinking about how to convey a persons name based on what we've encountered based on all clues considered. I see lots of "Mike" stuff from a variety of sources, horror film, Dr. Seuss, NBA basketball, periodic table's 'Mi-' and some cat and three references combined with a lingual shift (Japanese for Calico = Mi-ke). I think that's sufficient to give us Dodge's secret identity's first name. Now for his last name, a similar approach but careful to avoid or remove previously used thematic elements. What's that leave us to work with? OR maybe thats it, we get no last name and instead a business or landmark clue? What I'm working with is the color's of Halloween, Calico cats, and Reeses candy (I know, already used those thematic areas but in a different way...lets just consider COLOR). I detect a push towards a sports element, and not necessarily Baseball or Soccer or Badminton, since those were strongly emphasized (Pupkin and Chancethegardner)...this leaves the weakest association and therefore most subtle to be Football. Remember Gus wants to watch Friday Night Lights? Acrostic FNL = NFL is what I guess that means as a clue. Answer I get from all these considerations: Mike Riley of Oregon State Beavers (orange and black team colors) football team which plays at home in Reeser Stadium.

    At this point it seems uncertain whether to start calling Mike, the busy football coach, or to consider that the 12 is "taped"/adhered to the bottom of a stadium seat or tucked into a recess in a bleacher (11th floor cleaning supplies in center area - bleach = bleacher). If that is the case, then what would the candidate numbers be? 5? 12? 23? 82? 141? 1522? Or some isotope number of Uranium?

    Interesting note on Beavers: repersents the canadian nickel, also declared a type of fish by the Roman Catholic Church.

    Washington IS a rebus based on washing tubs or tuns. A tun is a large cask or barrel of 252 gallon capacity. Now might be a good time to cite the first floor paisley rug with a similar value of 262. Eleventh floor has a wine carafe. Second floor has big water drums. Lots of tubs, basins, and liquid containers are within Ternky Towers. Tun is nut backwards. Gus talks about eating a five gallon tub of rocky road and also mentions nuts, definately not almonds. Tun resembles tune or tone which is possibly why all the TVs and the music references.

    In the year 1522, was the first recorded use of the word 'inning' to mean 'a gathering in'.

    Thats a baseball reference, in case anyone was wondering.

    I'm really suprised folks haven't dropped by the forums to say more after so long. Is it that folks didn't get the memo...that the 12 is worth more than all the other numbers combined? Its too soon for this to be the new Dar.

    I have resolved where things lead. The middle of the trail was often mistaken for the end of the road. That is why i thought i for sure had the answer so many times.

    In between the lines there's a lot of obscurity
    I'm not inclined to resign to maturity
    If it's all right then you're all wrong
    Why bounce around to the same darn song
    You'd rather run when you can't crawl

    I know You know that I'm not telling the truth
    I know you know they Just don't have any proof
    Embrace the deception, learn how to bend
    Your worst inhibitions, they will Psych you out in the end.

    A recent film called HOWL, not having much of anything to do with the book is a must see...just sayin.

    I'm detecting a huge British overlap with the subtext. Anyone else see any references?
    Saw Jeff Tweedy was mentioned in a tweet by Jory John, a person followed by Gus on Twitter. It confirms the Being There connection and soo many other things I've concluded.
