Bug Eye McGee decided to visit his grandfather, Old Eyes McGee, one day. He travelled far to reach his shack in a deserted area of Krawk Island. Bug Eye McGee was surprised to find Old Eyes McGee more irritable than usual. After asking him what the problem was, Old Eyes McGee gave this reply.

"I cannot sleep! Two o' them sits on me roof, singin' all night. One o' them can peek but th' other canna, unless ye give th' lad a letter. Both can spell pirate better than ye or I!"

Bug Eye McGee, not understanding his grandfather's words, decided to wait until nightfall to see for himself.

What was on the roof of Old Eyes McGee's shack?

Jake has always been quite the explorer, but becoming one of Neopia's greatest treasure hunters doesn't happen without a little help. He had various contacts around the globe, all of whom provided Jake with information over the Virtupets network via morse code.

One day, while on the verge of his greatest archeological discovery to date, Jake recieved one of those communications. The only problem was, part of the message was encoded differently than usual. The entire message read as follows:
I found it. Took extra precautions in this message. The key to the information is mysterious, but I'm sure you can figure it out.

AACAAAAABA CBAABACBBC BACAABAEBB AACDCCBCEA ACEAACABCE
AAAABDAACECBADCACCCD ACACEADBAA DBBBAEAEAB CEAEAAEBAA

You owe me... again.

- Shortie

Unfortunately, Jake had no idea how to decode it. He'd better work it out soon, though. He had a feeling he wasn't the only one on the trail.

What did the code say? Enter JUST the uncoded message with no other information!

(Back again for a second week.)

Two pirates are watching the ships come in to port one day when they notice something. A worn rope ladder hangs over the side of a pirate ship anchored in the main Krawk Island port. The bottom rung is low enough to touch the water. The distance between the rungs is 25 cm and the length of the rope ladder is 225 cm. After a few hours, the pirates realize that the tide is rising at the rate of 20 cm each hour. This makes them curious!

Counting from the top, how long will it take the water to reach the fifth rung?

The poor Mutant Blumaroo needs to fetch an item for his master. The master wasn't clear, however, and if Blumaroo can't bring him the correct thing, he won't have any supper tonight.

Here are the instructions left by the master:

Pick one Petpet that doesn't fit in each line.
1. Alabriss, Albat, Altachuck, Aroota.
2. Barbat, Batterfly, Bazatlan, Blugar.
3. Crabby, Crocalu, Cubett, Cuttlebot.
4. Dandan, Deaver, Djuti, Drackobunny.
5. Faellie, Feloreena, Flightning Bug, Flippy.

None of these five Petpets are what I want. The Petpet I want is spelled out using their names, however.

You can spell out the Petpet's name by taking the:
Second letter from the 5th Neopet.
Second letter from the 3rd Neopet.
Fifth letter from the 1st Neopet.
Sixth letter from the 2nd Neopet.
Third letter from the 4th Neopet.

Which Petpet does the master want?

Submit ONLY the name of the ONE Petpet!

Habitarium Pest

Professor Clodbottle discovered a new breed of pest that seemed to divide itself into two in various lengths of time depending on its environment. He would say this discovery came after days of rigorous experimentation, but knowing him, it was probably on accident. Either way, this was quite astonishing! He'd never seen anything like it.

To experiment further and gather more data on the species, the professor created three separate Habitariums with various resources and space, but each starting with a single specimen at 10:00 NST.

Experimental Habitarium One resulted in the P3 dividing every 30 seconds. At exactly 11:03:30 NST (one hour, three minutes, and thirty seconds later) the Habitarium was half full.
Experimental Habitarium Two resulted in the P3 dividing every 45 seconds. At 11:49:15 NST (one hour, 49 minutes, and fifteen seconds later) the Habitiarium was half full.
Experimental Habitarium Three resulted in the P3 dividing every 60 seconds. At 12:13:00 NST (two hours, thirteen minutes later) the Habitarium was half full.

At what time would Experimental Habitarium Three be completely full?

@lennyfan,
12:14:00 NST

Since it doubles every 60 seconds, that's how long it will take to go from half full to full.

@markr,
They only wanted 12:14, even though the published answer is 12:14:00 and every time in the problem had NST on it. I'd have to chalk this up as another major fail on the LC's part.

Simon was on his way home after a fun time shopping in the marketplace. Simon wanted to beat his own record for most bounces on his favourite bouncy ball so he carefully walked as he counted his steps and bounces in turn. Unfortunately, since Simon had concentrated so hard on bouncing the ball, he didn't pay attention to his surroundings!

Bounce! Bounce! Smack!

Simon looked down in dismay and realized that his prized bouncy ball had fallen down into an old mini golf hole. Simon remembered that this golf course had been abandoned because the holes were too deep and people couldn't retrieve their balls. Simon studied the golf hole sadly as he realized how close the bouncy ball was. The ball was barely 5 cm away but he couldn't fit his hand into the hole to retrieve it.

Simon decided to look through the items he purchased earlier to see if there was anything he could use. He found a half-eaten biscuit umbrella, cloud paddle brush, butter knife, twine, and a water pitcher.

Simon suddenly had an idea and was able to successfully retrieve his undamaged bouncy ball.

How did Simon do it?

Gordos, having been a master tax collector for some time now, liked to keep his records encoded. Not only did this help with privacy should the ledger ever be stolen by someone unscrupulous, but it was also just great fun to decipher later. He really liked to count.

The below is a page from this ledger, with the date and time of two collections. There is no name included, but we do know that E represents an even number while O represents an odd number, all between zero and nine. (Zero is even.)
http://images.neopets.com/games/conundrum/472_eeoeoooeoe.png

Given the notes he's made and the information provided, what is the sum of the collections taken on those two days?

Enter just the number with no punctuation!

@lennyfan,
I think you need to assume that each letter stands for a different number. Then the problem becomes relatively easy. Otherwise, there are multiple solutions.

@lennyfan,
The question did say "while O represents an odd number, ALL between zero and nine." So I guess we are right to assume there are each letter in every row represents a different even or odd number.

However, if each letter stands for a different number (eg. the first E in the 16 Running Y8 row is a different even number than the second E in the same said row and etc), then there will definitely be multiple solutions. Because EOO & OEOE could refer to a large variety of numbers, since the only numeric clue given is that the first row E + E + O = 9. Or am I misunderstanding something here?

I've tried solving when E & O only represent 1 number each, and it doesn't work. So I don't have the solution yet, still trying to work it out.

Does anyone have any ideas/ found the solution?

I have a feeling that the '16th of Running month Y8' and '12th of Eating month Y8' has something to do with the calculations.
