Talking The Unsolvable

Thanks wvwoman, with some I have tried looking at quote sites, but some of the hardest are the ones without an author so I just couldn't find it. I'll try posting here for help and I'll also print, thanks (and good to know that there is no way to get the solution through this site) Wonder if they'd consider an "I give up button"

What a terrific idea! I'd vote for an "I give up" button. Write a comment in the box located at the bottom of every page, and it will go straight to the site's administrator.

Default problem with an "I give up" button

The only problem would be in how to score the "I give up" and it would have a large effect on how the records are tallied. It seems giving up should result in points being deducted, because if a player did not lose points for giving up, then the challenge of achieving 100% accuracy would become watered-down, and lose its admirability.
