    Pillars of the Earth - what are you reading right now?

    So my curiosity was piqued and I started to read The Pillars of the Earth after reading all the glowing reviews on Amazon. I have to say that it is probably one of the most fascinating books I have ever read and I can’t wait to finish it and start reading the sequel that just came out last week!

    What are you reading right now and what do you recommend?

    Changes to Tanga - Wahoo!

    Hello all of our loyal, lovable and squishy Tanganites!

    TangaJoe and the rest of the Tanga Elves are very busy trying to get ready for our launch of Tanga 2.0. It’s coming very soon and we are super excited about all the neat and fun changes we are making to the site. I think you will all be pleased…

    One of the changes we are making, we wanted to do immediately. And that is that we are going to be offering our Tangathon model of selling all the time. No more one deal every 24 hours! We wanted to do this for a variety of reasons:

    1) We really enjoy taking more of your money, more often
    2) It will allow us to offer you a wider variety of products
    3) It gives you more buying options when shopping at Tanga
    4) We think it’s a heckuva lot more fun!

    So starting today, we are going to be running the Tangathon into eternity and beyond. We may stop it at some point in the future to mix things up a bit with different ways of purchasing so stay glued to your computer monitor with one hand on the mouse and another hand on your wallet!

    Now, because of this, we may leave some products up longer than others depending on availability, quantity, if we are snug in our beds, etc.

    Let us know what you think!

    Tanga Times - October 23, 2007 by Robrizob

    Good evening, folks. I regret to inform you all that this will be my last Tanga Times for a while. I hope to make this a temporary retirement because I’ve still got a few ideas for my little patch of Tanga, but as it stands now the people around me have grown tired of my incessant puns and my coworkers are sick of trying to decipher my rebus emails. I think I need a break.

    Speaking of rebuses, let’s have another contest for old times’ sake. I’m a week early, but I thought we’d have a Halloween themed contest. Submit your best rebuses for monsters, horror movie villains, and other creepy creatures. Obligatory example (stretching required!):

    In case you need inspiration, here is a list of monsters.

    You can check out last week’s winner here and the two runners up here and here. Please use the answer to your rebus as your image’s file name. Prizes are the same as always: 10 points to the winner and two 5 point runners up. Submit as many entries as you like, but you can only win one prize. To submit an image, first make a post. An “upload image” link will then appear on your post. The deadline for submissions is 24 hours from now. Have fun!

    -Robrizob

    TangaMonkey’s Note: Thanks to Robrizob for entertaining us the past couple of months! Pretty soon, we will have on our web site, a new category of puzzles for you Rebus makers. We will be announcing it soon, so get all of your great Rebus puzzles ready to go and also, you are more than welcome to post the ones you have already made! Thanks for all of your continuing support!

    Tanga Times - October 21, 2007 by Apparatus

    Following in Robrizob’s footsteps, lets have a rebus contest – but with a twist. Create a rebus for a fellow Tanganite.

    For an example, check out Spamwise’s profile:

    Spamwise

    As usual, make sure the filename is the answer/user to the rebus. 10 Tanga Points to the best rebus, 7 Tanga Points to second best, 3 Tanga Points to the third best. Judging will take place in 24 hours.

    - Apparatus

    PS. This is just silly… but fun: Kenya

    Tanga Times - October 16, 2007

    Dear Tanganites!

    44 used to be the record for rebus contest entries, but we broke that last week with a whopping 52 entries! You can see threehojos winning entry here and the two runner-up entries from Apparatus and Murdoctor. What say we try to break sixty this week? It’ll be tough, since the highly productive Apparatus is guest judge this week. Maybe an especially fruitful subject, one fraught with rivalry and emotion, will help us in our quest: How about sports teams? Any team from any sport is fair game, and you can include the city name if you prefer. Obligatory example:

    Please use the answer to your rebus as your image’s file name. Prizes are the same as always: 10 points to the winner and two 5 point runners up. Submit as many entries as you like, but you can only win one prize. To submit an image, first make a post. An “upload image” link will then appear on your post. The deadline for submissions is 24 hours from now. Have fun!

    Thanks to Philana for suggesting this week and last week’s theme! Oh, and will someone please get me the world’s greatest puzzle for Christmas?

    Tanga Times - October 14, 2007 by Apparatus

    I love searching for odd and/or interesting things on the internet. In fact, it was how I found Tanga puzzles! A great website for finding odd or interesting things on the internet is StumbleUpon.com

    This week’s Tanga Points go a poet. Post a link to something odd and/or interesting you have found on the internet and then write a haiku about it. This week’s guest judge is Robrizob. The author of the winning Haiku will receive 10 points with two 5 point runnerups. You may post as many haiku/links that you desire. Judging will take place in 24 hours.

    Odd sites I may find
    Beyond Google I look to

    Tanga Times - October 11, 2007 by Murdoctor

    Hello, everyone! This is my first Tanga Times!

    Before getting into the “audience participation” part of the show, we have some obligatory time-wasters:

    Online version of Infocom’s ’Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ game

    Build your own South Park character

    The Visual Thesaurus

    Ok, today’s theme is “The Story of the Moral”. Think of a famous moral, proverb, or saying… and then write a (very) short story about it, posting it here in a comment with the “moral of the story”. Here are a few examples:

    Mick Jagger joined my fantasy football league, but he refused to draft Randy Moss or Santana Moss. The moral of the story? A Rolling Stone gathers no Moss.

    My buddy was thirsty, so I gave him a Mountain Dew; hopefully, he’ll return the favor someday. The moral of the story? Dew unto others, as you would have them Dew unto you.

    As a sports agent, I’d heard about these two tribesmen from the African wilderness with amazing jumping and throwing skills, but it would have cost me too much to go recruit them, and I’d have had to give up my contract with Larry Bird to do so. The moral of the story? A Bird in the hands is worth two in the Bush.

    I will be the judge, granting 10TP for the best/funniest/cleverest story, and 5TP apiece for 2 runners-up.

    -Murdoctor

    Tanga TImes - October 9, 2007

    Last week’s rebus contest had the biggest turnout yet with 44 entries! The quality of entries was high and the decision was tough, but Murdoctor came out on top with this highly amusing entry. Apparatus and BigSlick took the two runner-up spots for this one and this one, respectively. Excellent work everyone.

    This week, let’s do car makes and/or models. Obligatory example:

    Please use the answer to your rebus as your image’s file name. Prizes are the same as always: 10 points to the winner and two 5 point runners up. This week’s guest judge is my coworker Shirlene. Submit as many entries as you like, but you can only win one prize. To submit an image, first make a post. An “upload image” link will then appear on your post. The deadline for submissions is 24 hours from now. Have fun!

    P.S. I am running out of friends and family. If anyone would like to be a guest judge for future rebus contests, shoot me an email at robrizob.tanga@gmail.com. Sorry, there’s no payment except whatever enjoyment you derive from helping to judge. The only qualifications are that you must have solved at least 25 one word warm ups/wonders and have attained the lofty Tanga fruit status of lemon. Thanks!

    Tanga Times - October 8th, 2007 by pyrok

    I know I promised lateral thinking as the topic for tonight but it was actually becoming more than one Tanga Times can handle so I’ve decided to hold off and spread it out over the next two issues instead since I’m going on vacation next week so I need to submit two next week to cover for my absence.

    So tonight let’s just keep it simple:

    Something fun:

    This game is called Line-Rider. Here is the classic version.

    The hacked version:

    And a video of someone who has either mastered or hacked the game:

    As usual, the first challenge will be FTP (first-to-post) and the second will be a random drawing where you have the chance to enter anytime between now and when robrizob’s Tuesday Tanga Times posts. You enter by emailing your answer to me at: pyroktanga@gmail.com.

    ‘#’1 (FTP = 10 points)

    What can be put in a pitcher so that it is lighter than when it is filled with air?

    ‘#’2 (Random Drawing = 10 points) Send answer to: pyroktanga@gmail.com

    What comes next in this sequence: elgnairt, erauqs, nogatnep, nogaxeh, nogatpeh, ?

    “Alcohol, my permanent accessory
    Alcohol, a party-time necessity
    Alchool, alternative to feeling like yourself
    O alcohol, I still drink to your health”

    - Alcohol by Barenaked Ladies

    This week’s quiz game is a tribute to that wonder of wonders, alcohol. I’ve got 5 alcohol-related questions for you. First person to post the answers to all 5 here correctly wins the points. By the way, the points for my last quiz are still up for grabs. I guess we don’t have as many TV geeks here as I imagined. Let’s hope there’s a few more folks that enjoy a tip of the wrist.

    1. By Act of Congress, what is the official alcoholic beverage of the United States?

    2. What well known phrase comes from the serving sizes of British ales?

    3. What well-known fictional character first introduced a drink that begins by taking the juice from one bottle of that Ol’ Janx Spirit?

    4. What author created the following drink recipie and where did it first appear: Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel.

    5. What TV character considers beer to be “the cause of and solution to all the world’s problems?”

    There you go folks! Enjoy a cold one while you ponder these and I’ll be back next week!

I’ve noticed there are some pretty good photoshoppers at this site, so let’s put some of those skills to the test and make a contest out of it. Here, only robrizob knows I am an avid Heroes fan. I love that show, so let’s start with this picture:

    You know, it seems like there’s something missing for these so-called “heroes” … costumes! Photoshop this gang to look like real heroes, no limits, take it as far as you want. I will be judging these. 1st gets 10 points, 2nd and 3rd get 5 apiece. Have fun and good luck!

    Tanga Times - October 2nd, 2007 by Robrizob

    Last week we had a great turnout for the weekly rebus contest with 34 entries total. It was a tough decision, but Philana regained the rebus crown from Apparatus for this rebus. DrParty06 and Apparatus took the two runner-up prizes for this one and this one respectively. Let me preemptively deny that the presence of Jessica Alba in Apparatus’s rebus swayed the judges towards his entry ;-) Well done everyone!

    This week’s contest theme is comic and cartoon characters. Any character or group of characters from a comic book, comic strip, or animated cartoon is fair game. Obligatory example:

    Please use the answer to your rebus as your image’s file name. Prizes are the same as always: 10 points to the winner and two 5 point runners up. This week’s guest judge is my sister Sarah. Submit as many entries as you like, but you can only win one prize. To submit an image, first make a post. An “upload image” link will then appear on your post. The deadline for submissions is 24 hours from now. Have fun!

    Tanga Times - October 1st, 2007 by pyrok

    I can’t believe Autumn has already arrived and the first day of October is already here! Time to start thinking about some Halloween-themed puzzles! Does anybody have a clever costume they plan to wear?

    Well, I promised a link to a more online-based logic puzzle site and I’m delivering.

    Here is the first one.
    And here is Flash -running one.
    If anyone else would like to share any they’ve discovered and enjoy, feel free!

    And this is another Flash-based one that is a ""Cross the River" type of puzzle.":http://www.robmathiowetz.com/

    “This is a link for an “online Louis Carrol exhibit.”":http://www.hrc.utexas.edu/exhibitions/online/carroll/lc6.html One section is about the logic puzzles he attempted to create and perfect. I thought it was kind of interesting.

    As usual, the first challenge will be FTP (first-to-post) and the second will be a random drawing where you have the chance to enter anytime between now and when robrizob’s Tuesday Tanga Times posts. You enter by emailing me at: pyroktanga@gmail.com.

    1. (FTP = 10 points)
      A farmer is returning from the market where he bought a goat, a wolf, and cabbage. To get home he must cross a river but his boat only allows him to take one of the three at a time. He can’t leave the goat and the cabbage together (because the goat would eat it) and he can’t leave the goat with the wolf (because the goat would be eaten). How can the farmer get everything to the other side safely?
    1. (Random Drawing = 10 points) Send answer to: pyroktanga@gmail.com
      A family of Lygophobics wants to get through a dark tunnel. The father can make it in 1 minute, the mother in 2 minutes, the son in 4 minutes and the younger son in 5 minutes. The narrow tunnel only allows no more than two people at once and their travel time is limited to the speed of the slower one. Can they all make it if they have a torch that lasts only 12 minutes without anybody’s fear of dark places affecting them? Prove your answer yes or no.

    Coming next week: lateral-thinking!

    examples of unexpected art:

    Dirty Car Art

    Tonight’s contest is a coloring contest. Color the image below in the most imaginative
    way you can think of.

    The judge will be my stepdaughter. (For those that like to do their research: She is a 12 year old that prefers the color red, monkeys & chimps and being quirky) Deadline for
    entry will be 8pm EST, 7pm CST, 5pm PST as this is her bedtime. Just post something on this blog and then you will be able to upload your picture!
