is it something conceptual? Tralalalala


this meaning object? How should I know?
something with life in it? A man goes into a bar...


is this a real-life scenario? Does life include bacteria?

OOOpppss... rulebreaker... didnt read that... It can happen to anyone

What's a rulebreaker? Somnambulate? Estivate? Ruminate? Stridulate? Can you answer my question? Can you answer a question asking you a question about whether or not this is a rulebreaker? What would you reply with if I asked you a question? Is there a pattern? Does it involve letters, numbers, and other characters? Could every question be answered using a QWERTY keyboard and a four-dimensional mouse?

As an aside: This query does not have to do with solving your puzzle. I am fairly new to these lateral puzzles and I honestly would like to know what the term "rulebreaker" means.

A rulebreaker is a game where you try to find a pattern or rule in my answers to your questions. My answers according to the rule will be in bold.

Your guesses about what the rule is should be formatted in italics in order to distinguish them from questions that are supposed to be answered according to the rule. Only direct guesses at the rule are allowed (i.e. it's not possible to ask Yes/No-questions about what the rule is; clues about the rule should instead be gathered by posing normal "rule-answered" questions in some thoughtful way.)

My comments that are not according to the rule will be in bold and italics (like this long comment which you just read).


What's a rulebreaker? See above. Wink wink nod nod.
Somnambulate? Ohoy!
Ruminate? Boredom.
Stridulate? Conflagrationary
Can you answer my question? Do you expect an answer?
Can you answer a question asking you a question about whether or not this is a rulebreaker? glaukoma
What would you reply with if I asked you a question? I would say: moot!
Is there a pattern? Yes, there is a pattern.
Does it involve letters, numbers, and other characters? Now, we should try not to get all to involved here.
Could every question be answered using a QWERTY keyboard and a four-dimensional mouse? Perhaps if the mouse were a citizen of the United Kingdom.

As an aside: This query does not have to do with solving your puzzle. I am fairly new to these lateral puzzles and I honestly would like to know what the term "rulebreaker" means. Then I guess you don't fancy this answer, which is according to the rule?

I've answered your question above. But since your question wasn't in italics I've answered it according to the rule too, blatantly disregarding your talk about your honest intentions. ;)

By the way: this rulebreaker is pretty lame and not especially lateral. You might consider spending your energy on asking some questions on my other puzzle instead ("The Profundities of a Fuzzy Weltanschauung") It's not a rulebreaker but just a normal puzzle. Warning: it has homosexuals in it. (But no midgets, unfortunately!)

HINT and Blooper:
Oops... There is an error in a certain place above, but it's sort of too late for me to correct it by now. The fact that it is hard for me to correct the error afterwards could perhaps give you some hint about the nature of the rule. The error would disappear if the question and answer in my post from October 24, 2006 - 7:48 am -- if that question had neither been asked nor answered.

are you using certain parts of the jumble to get your rule? By "jumble", do you mean the 'aa', 'ab', 'ac', 'ad' etcetera? I shouldn't really have to answer these kind of questions, but I'll do it anyway:

BIG HINT: The answers do not depend on what questions are asked. (Sorry for all your work trying to find out clever questions to ask being in vain). So, the rule guiding the answers must depend on something else instead. What can that be? Remember: I've given another hint above as to the nature of the rule.

As a bonus, I'll give you some more answers to empty questions:


? James
? Janet
? Sara
? Woodrow
? Peter
? Cassandra
? Steve
? Hagbard
? Lucy
? Abraham
? Tiffany
? Jennifer
? Jessica
? Juliet
? Slobodan
? George
? William
? Sophie
? Rachel
? Aristotle
? Stephen
? Alphonzo

So: how can there be a system in this?

a question mark is always a name? No -- as I said, the questions (including question marks and the like) are irrelevant for the rule.

are Numbers involved, like in a code? I'll have to think a bit more about whether I should answer these kinds of questions -- it's a rulebreaker after all. But, on the other hand there is of course no reason for you to ask any further normal questions, so now we'll more or less just have to wait until someone discovers the pattern.

Anyway, here are some more answers (tell me if you want more):


? birds
? sport
? panda
? widow
? poker
? fatwa
? sabre
? hated
? silly
? venom
? dizzy
? polar
? extra
? bigot
? women
? spare
? bosom
? share
? level
? melee
? lemon
? motto
? grass
? Borat
? zebra
? I think it's time for an exception now.
? sugar
? manga
? slate
? bipod
? lucky
? denim
? party
? lamer

So: how can there be a system in this?

HINT: The pattern cannot be seen in a single answer. Neither, as you know by now, do answers in any way depend on the questions asked. Instead, the pattern can only be seen in the sequence of several consecutive riddles. That's why I couldn't correct an erratic answer afterwards (see my posts from Tuesday, October 24, 2006 - 7:48 am and Wednesday, November 01, 2006 - 7:11 pm)

Yeah, last letter, down-up and all that. Great work with coming up with good answers, by the way. I understand that it was relly hard to avoid mistakes while still keeping it a mystery

Right.

Just to clarify:

If you read the last letter of each consecutive answer, you will, repeatedly, get this message:

"No stawraedy, my rat Nemele!"

which, as I'm sure you all know, is the answer to questions such as "I don't know how you do it, Sherlock!", or "How can there be a system in this?"

And that's as much of a SPOILER as you will get.

FAQ:


What's a "stawraedy"?
It's what you get when you put an ydearwats upside down.

(Snoozer) I understand that it was really hard to avoid mistakes while still keeping it a mystery
Yeah, there are only so many common english words ending in 'a' or 'm'. Aren't I great?

I'm completely disappointed in myself, since the first thing I did when I first looked at this puzzle was to look at the last letters of each word!! But I never thought of reading bottom to top! Argh!
