Res ipsa loquitur.

FunFact: Twitter launched in July 2006.

Very few peeps still tweeting came aboard that year.

I've always contended that us 2006 early adopters should get a "Verified" checkmark just for having faith early on and keeping it, but Jack Dorsey ignores me whenever I mention this.

Prolly muted me a long time ago, now that I think about it.

But, as Bartleby the scrivener liked to say: "I would prefer not to."

Read "Bartleby the Scrivener," Herman Melville's wonderful 1853 short story, here.

Color Change Puzzle

Color-change-puzzle

From the website:

If you're looking for a real puzzling challenge, you probably want one with more than 300 pieces.

Unless, of course, the image depicted is a solid sheet of color which changes when you touch a piece.

This puzzle is exactly that: each piece is printed with a solid violet hue using heat-sensitive ink which changes to pink when you touch it.

Not only does filling in a field of solid color make for quite a challenge on its own, but also each time you pick up a piece, the shift in pigmentation is likely to confuse you into thinking it might not fit where you previously thought it would.

Features and Details:

 12" x 16"

 300 pieces

 Matte finish

 Color change lasts a few moments before reverting

$16.99.
