You're not looking at the whole of the problem. When you see it, you'll go "O! I get it now!" Circle around and have another look at it...

Daft: pretend you cannot read or do maths more complex than counting on your fingers.

You're looking for the number that is 4 minus the Euler characteristic. We educated fellows might take our time on this type of problems, but at least we have fancy names for everything.

Come on, DB, don't give up. It would be a shame if all those clues went for naught.

And great to see you again, Will. I hope your vision is fully restored.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
