It's Saturday night. You're here browsing on the internet. Why not do something intellectual for a change?

Notes on the last two links: "A" goes to the archives of the past MIT Mystery Hunts. Many brilliant puzzles are found inside. "Change" goes to Cliff Johnson's page for the now-free Mac puzzler "3 in Three;" you will most likely need the included emulator to play that and his even more brilliant "Fool's Errand."

I like the 'scatter-shot' type of posts. With enough links in a general spread of topic, most people will find something fun or interesting. I know that today's style is one quick link, but most of them that I see are far from the William Tell level.

O NOES TOO MANY LINKS I AM BEWILDRED

I've had these sitting in an open tab for weeks waiting for me to get around to feeling like using my brain.

I used to use my brain more than I do.

Hopefully, part of the reason they come to MeFi is to check out the links, no?

The semicolon called; it feels neglected.

Arrrrr... it doesn't speak well to my riddle-solving ability that I can't seem to find the solutions portion of that wu riddles page. What the hell? The forum there is NOT useful.

The most difficult riddle to solve in the huge set provided at the berkeley.edu address (as linked to by ook) is why you have to enter a forum and then search for an answer.

"button trap"
Sorry, no matches were found.

Hahah! I WILL SOLVE THIS META-RIDDLE
