1. ## Wei-Hwa's Puzzle Challenges

This isn't a hunt, but a spinoff of the Da Vinci Code Quest .

Wei-Hwa Huang, the Google software engineer and member of the group that created the Da Vinci Code Quest puzzles, has decided to keep creating puzzle challenges. The first will be May 26.

2. The first challenge is up. Fun little math puzzle.

I cant find it

4. This replaced the Da Vinci Code Quest on Google personal pages. I'm not sure if you can get to by adding content (assuming you have an account).

5. If you can't get it, here's the puzzle:

May 26th, 2006: While we're still getting some fancier stuff ready behind the scenes, I thought this would be a good place to put some neo-classic puzzles. Hope you like this one:

Using the numbers 3, 3, 8, 8 (in any order), make a mathematical expression that equals 24. You can use only addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division (and parentheses), but in any order you wish. Note that you have to use all four numbers; otherwise 3 times 8 would be valid -- and that wouldn't be much of a puzzle, would it?

6. I love these style puzzles. I think they are the root of all of great thinking

Here's the Solve for anyone who wants it...

7. June 2nd, 2006: If a tree falls in the woods because of a wound, then what little object will not hear the sound? Answer: a deaf leaf.

A Why Me Rhyme is a pair of words that look like they should rhyme (after all, only their first letter is different), but don't really. For example, depending on the colorist, Etrigan could be considered a lemon demon. See if you can figure out these twelve Why Me Rhymes from their descriptions:

What is heard when your little girl is having fun
A disgustingly dirty sticker
A siesta for weirdos
A friendly rejection
Lists of all sorts of animals to be eaten
An unrefined crucifix
A type of bar bet, maybe?
Makes a news agency irrelevant
Stamps that someone refuses to return
Makes contact with feminine hygiene products
A price reduction given only to certain noblemen

8. The ones I have so far:
