## 5 X 5 Square or Box??

I think we may be sidetracked on the 5 to a side. Most are considering a 5 X 5 square. But the text clearly says BOX.

So should we be looking at a 5 X 5 X 5 Box?

2. Could it be ... ? Yes, yes, it is! The Rubik's "Professor"!

Ooh, this is getting interesting.

3. Ooh! That could get ugly!!!

In the UK this was called Rubik's Revenge!

And it was solved by grouping pices together and turning it into a Rubik cube puzzle!

5. Oh, H4T, it has already gotten ugly. Very ugly! For two weeks my apartment was littered with my makeshift Rubik's cubes (constructed from leftover favor boxes from my wedding) and actual Rubik's puzzles ... until my wife went on a cleaning binge over the weekend and blew a gasket. Had to throw out all my boxes and toys. A tear.

(You probably thought I was kidding in that earlier post, didn't you?!)

So, for whatever it's worth, I've already thoroughly explored the various Rubik's avenues, with no success. It's expensive and frustrating. I don't recommend it.

Well, along with this I have managed to locate something called a Pandiagonal Magic Square

7. Ok,
I'm was an English major, and HATE math.

Could some one explain (in small, easy to understand terms ) what the purpose of a magic square is? I don't get it.

Thank you kindly!!!

Truthfully, I am not sure at all yet.

But I am putting it out there for people in case they can figure out if it has any significance or not. All avenues are worth exploring a little at least.

10. yes, yes... that was it...

it's what happens when you start writing one thing, then something else comes to you, and then you find you have this huge thought that just keeps going and going, and suddenly you find yourself in a different place than where you started, and things just seem to RUN ON!!!!

hheee heee
