Do we need to find out who this politician is exactly? Relevant that she is female? Relevant that she is a politician? Do we need to find out which country she is from?
Does she have any health problems?
Play--a game? a sport? a musical instrument? anyone else involved in her "playing"?
She couldn't go to sleep...ever?? Or only that particular night? or day? a few days?
If she went to sleep, would she die? fall ill? be in danger of falling ill?

Did he worry about the health of: this child in particular? a group of children, of which she was one? children in general? some other group? people in general?

Relevant whether the politician is in power or not? if so, is he?
Did he make some public statement about his worry? did he do something, as a politician, to alleviate his worry? (such as, proposing a new law etc.)

Is she unable to sleep because she too is now worried? about her health?

Sand in this case, is it the kind of sand people think about when they are dreaming away to a sandy beach? Ie normal sand?
According to the politician, is sand harmful in general? this particular sand? sand from a certain place? sand for these sandboxes?
Is it direct contact with the sand that is harmful or getting it inside the body?
Is it relevant when this takes place? Could it be today? before man went to the moon?

Would the problem stem from the sand? volume of sand relevant? would it stem from her age? some medical condition, which she suffers?

Would the sand drop on her? be sprinkled on her? or she would have to get in the sandbox?

Would she rather avoid location of sand? or refuse to keep it out of sight?

Like, knowing how dangerous the sand could be to her health, staying awake until she was sure it had been disposed or something..

Was the sandbox located where she would sleep? her bedroom? on her bed? Sandbox just recently placed in current location? Was she just recently aware of the politician's worry?

Hi Cookie! Glad to see you again here.
I'm still curious what the solution of your last puzzle before you left would have been ...


Is it relevant where the sand was from?
Was the sand removed from the sandbox?
All sand from all sandboxes in that region?
Was the sand actually more radioactive than any other usual sandbox sand?
Were new limits for the allowed contamination of sand for sandboxes introduced? and it turned out that most sandboxes exceeded them?
Is the location relevant? (close to Geesthacht, maybe?)

Hi Cookie! Glad to see you again here.
I'm still curious what the solution of your last puzzle before you left would have been ... Hi! Nice to see you too! Didn't someone host the puzzle? I gave someone the solution... what was the puzzle again? I could restart it!

Is it relevant where the sand was from? no
Was the sand removed from the sandbox? yes!
All sand from all sandboxes in that region? yes!
Was the sand actually more radioactive than any other usual sandbox sand? no
Were new limits for the allowed contamination of sand for sandboxes introduced? irr. and it turned out that most sandboxes exceeded them? irr.
Is the location relevant? yesish (close to Geesthacht, maybe?) no

What you found out yet:
A politician decided to remove sand from the sandboxes in the area he is responsible for because he was afraid the sand could be radioactive. The little girl couldn't play in the sandbox. The reason why she couldn't go to sleep is related to the sandman.
If you find out the reason and when this happened and the region where this could have happened you solved everything.

Well, I would guess Chernobyl anyways (even if you answered No to Sunshine's post on the Monday, January 15, 2007 - 3:09 pm)
Was the reason the radioctive downfall that was spread over a large part of western Europe, including Austria? And the sand was removed to protect playing children?
Was the girl afraid that even the Sandman's sand had become radioactive? or was it removed too?

******** SPOILER *********

After the accident in the nuclear plant in Chernobyl in 1986 a politician in Vienna was afraid that the radioactive downfall could affect the sand in the sandboxes on playgrounds. So he had the sand removed. Our little girl couldn't play in the sandbox.
Because she thought the sand was removed from everywhere she assumed that the sandman also doesn't have sand and couldn't go to sleep because she worried that she could not dream.

Well done!
