    Everyone is having trouble even pin pointing a state ... apparently we need to be pin pointing it down to inches. Wow

    How would it "slip" without completely falling? Why would it "slip" in the first place? Was it raining recently wherever it is? Windy perhaps?

    One anagram of "two inches" yields "chews on it". Chews on what? A bone, maybe?

    Why, MS has tossed us a bone!

    Thinking along these same lines here. First of all, he could have used "moved", but he intentionally chose the word "slipped" which got me thinking "how" are these tokens placed and with what and what would cause it to "move" or slip in the first place. I anagrammed "slipped" and got "led pips". AE would be missing for "lead pipe". AE could be "one". It's also an abbreviation for "each" and "EA" in mythology was the Babylonian god of "primordial" waters.

    While this isn't terribly critical in and of itself (the dragonfly still being where it was), it has some implications about how the tokens are secured to their hiding places. It would tend to indicate that the tokens are tied to something, rather than resting upon something.

    But would 2 inches really make a difference?? Unless it was unsecure somehow and had the potential of completely falling, or completely "slipping" out of whatever it is in, I don't even see why it had to be mentioned at all. Best Of Luck Everybody. LOBE. Ear-listen. Or BOLE-the trunk of a tree?

    Default Re: Inches

    I think the important factor here, is that ms was perhaps concerned with someone not finding the token because it "slipped two inches" - we should take these words in mind when pinpointing Exact token location, IOW s/b Inches, quite precise...

    He said "about" 2 inches. Could it have been 1 inch?? A -1 caesar "slip" of "bole or lobe" gives you dank.
