I just thought of this idea today :) .I have been reading a Magazine called "Young Times" and on one of the pages there is a one-strip comic in which there is a mystery for the kids to solve.
I couldn't solve it and thought if you guys could get the answer ;). The one who posts the correct answer will post another mystery and on and on....
The name of the comic is "Slylock Fox"

Reward:
The first person to solve six Mysteries will get "Tomb Raider: The Man of Bronze" (Novel) from me as a Reward but the problem is to get the Reward you have pay to visit my house and take it from me. And I really mean it :ton: I won't be sending it through Ebay or something like that :tea: ( This way there's a 99% possibility I won't have to give away the novel ;) )

NEW RULE:
If someone doesn't want to post a mystery then I'll post it instead of him.

A painting by a world-renowned artist was stolen from the Forest Museum. The missing masterpiece is now in Kopy Kat's studio. The feline forger has already painted a copy of the artwork.

Which on is the Original Painting?
:D Good Luck!:tmb:

I don't know, that looks more like a draft picture to me. ;) I think it's the right one because... it has a more original looking feeling to it :p

the one on the left is looking straight ahead, but one on right is looking to left.. dunno what that means, but not a very good copy ;)

27-08-08, 16:31
Its out of the Owl pictures:)

Jaywalker, you are the closest by picking up on that:D:tmb:

Drone
27-08-08, 16:33
ok then I think left is original. painter was looking at the left while he was making a copy. Hence Owl eyes look to left lol

jaywalker
27-08-08, 16:34
Its out of the Owl pictures:)

Jaywalker, you are the closest by picking up on that:D:tmb:

Everyones eyes look to side except the artists, so the one with eyes to side is original

lararoxs
27-08-08, 16:36
The one to the Left is correct!:tmb:

But your explanations are wrong! They are good, but not what im looking for!:)

toxicraider
27-08-08, 16:37

yh he was painting the left one, and from where he was standing it looked like the one on the right was looking left, towards him, as the eyes always follow you, clever :ton:

wait; left is original? confused

lararoxs
27-08-08, 16:40
OK since you have all gotten the right painting, I might as well tell you why!

An owl cannot shift its eyes from side to side, so therefore the image that has the owls eyes looking straight ahead is correct!:tmb:

Good Ideas though!:tmb:

Who's next?:)

A wealthy owner of a large mansion was found dead on Sunday morning.

The police arrive to question the maid and the two other people that are at the house.

The gardener said he couldn't have killed his employer because he was all the way out in the field at the suspected time of death.

The cook said he couldn't have done it because he was busy getting food supplies from the basement.

The maid said it couldnt have been her, because she was busy collecting the post.

Who did it?

lararoxs

An inconsiderate slob dumped trash on Rachel Rabbit's lawn. One of these two suspects is guilty. Slylock Fox found evidence that may identify the loathsome litterbug.

Who is the Slob?

yes, looks like there's a t-bone steak bone thingy, too.

toxicraider
27-08-08, 17:06
Is it to do with the smell? the bulls sense of smell might be impaired so it could go near the trash?

how do people know it was the suspects own rubbish? it might be somebody elses.

Slylock Fox and Max Mouse have been lost at sea for days. When Max awoke this morning, he spotted land. The happy mouse thought that they had reached the east coast of the United States. But Slylock Fox disagrees. Why?

but it rises in the east, that's on the east coast :confused:

Not As We
27-08-08, 18:20
The sun rises in the East,
if they were on the east coast then they would be facing west,
therefore the sun wouldnt be rising behind the coastline

Edit: NVM, here goes:

Citizens claim Count Weirdly’s robot just overturned every car in a six-block radius. But the count insists his robot has been home all night. Why does the water on the robot suggest to Slylock Fox that Count Weirdly is lying, even though this bitter, cold night is dry?

http://i34.************/11lr7v6.jpg

lararoxs
27-08-08, 18:29
The robot has been outside and got condensation/snow on him, he has come inside and the snow has melted:D

toxicraider
27-08-08, 18:30
maybe the cold made condensation under the cars so he got wet as he lifted them up? lol

Tombsearcher
27-08-08, 18:30
Because after overturning the cars he was freezing and after a while when he came back home the snow started melting ?

EDIT: dammit, lararoxs beat me to it!

toxicraider
27-08-08, 18:30
I didn't see the snow :vlol:

Not As We
27-08-08, 18:31
Its condensation,
he was cold outside,
so when he came back into the warmth,
condensation appeared on him

lararoxs

Because after overturning the cars he was freezing and after a while when he came back home the ice started melting ?

EDIT: dammit, lararoxs beat me to it!

violentblossom
27-08-08, 18:37
Answer — The water is condensation that formed on the robot’s freezing cold metal exterior when it returned to the warmth inside Count Weirdly’s castle home after its outdoor rampage.

Yay, lararoxs!

Count Weirdly left a dangerous secret formula, written on a slip of paper, atop a pedestal. The formula was guarded by lasers that would instantly drop a Plexiglass trap if anything passed through their protective beams.

How did Slylock Fox pick up the paper without getting trapped under the Plexiglass?

Good Luck:tmb:

A pickpocket stole Mr. Duck's wallet. Before the thief was nabbed, he hid the wallet in the Housewares Department of the Forest Department Store.

Can you point to the exact location where Slylock Fox found the stolen wallet?

Chief Mutt received a tip that an escaped criminal was hiding out in Granny Squirrel's house while she is on vacation. After finding no trace of the criminal, Chief Mutt suspects the tip was false! But Slylock Fox sees evidence that suggests someone was in the house recently.

What does the sly scarlet sleuth see?

Tools were stolen from a construction site last night. Max Mouse found footprints and a tire track, leading him to believe there were two thieves – one walking and the other riding a bike. Even though Slylock Fox believes both tracks are related to the robbery, he suspects there was only one thief.

Why?

toxicraider
27-08-08, 19:45
wheelbarrow

Titanium
27-08-08, 19:45
His bike broke, so he had to push it home? And the reason the thief wanted the tools was to fix the bike?

spikejones
27-08-08, 19:45

Toxicraider and Spikejones both got it at the same time! So fight it out between you!;)

Great idea though titanium!:tmb:

spikejones
27-08-08, 19:47
His bike broke, so he had to push it home? And the reason the thief wanted the tools was to fix the bike?

then there would be tire tracks coming into the site. It is very difficult to follow the exact same path in both directions, especially when you have an adrenaline rush from having just stolen something and are trying to rush away from the scene of the crime. on top of that, when you turn a bike there becomes two tread marks as the tires do not follow the same exact path. wheel barrow is more accurate.

Diamonds were stolen from the Forest Jewelry Store. A witness reported seeing Harry Ape snatch the jewels. After obtaining a warrant, Chief Mutt and Deputy Duck searched Harry's house but were unable to find the diamonds. Slylock Fox found the diamonds after a quick look around the room.

spike won they're in shotglass.

Btw those dues on that site (I bet they even don't know it) and no-one here did mention one thing: if you put diamond in liquid they become invisible and you can't ever see them unless you pour liquid out :) You can try it (if you got diamonds :D) I've read about this in one scientific book

Count Weirdly used growth hormones to create Mike, the giant mosquito. The beastly bug has radio receivers implanted in his brain so that Weirdly can control his every move. The count says he is going to unleash the blood-sucking mutant on the forest population. Why is Slylock Fox not very alarmed?

good guess, but way wrong for the actual answer (according to the comic).

theoretically speaking, the transmitter only has a limited range and odds are that count weirdly will not follow the thing all the way around. once the bug is out of range - no more remote control.

but let the quest for knowledge continue:D


edit: Not As We got it

that was something that I did not know!! I'm not exactly a bugologist :vlol:
