Postby LemonCurry » Sat Dec 03, 2016 7:18 am

Billionaire Luke hates travelling to cold places. Why does he want to celebrate his wedding in the Antarctic?

Is the wedding to be at a military base? is it to be indoors? outdoors? in water?

Does he want to go there because it's very private? because there's no press and paparazzi?

Is Luke a famous billionaire? any relation to Skywalker?

Was this a dare?

Antarctica = the continent?

Luke = HAM?

Is this based on a true event? if so, was it in the last 10 years?

Oh, to clarify my earlier question, what I mean is that you mentioned in an answer some posts above that both the position of the sun above the horizon and sunrise were both relevant, so is the position of the sun when it's sunrise relevant to the puzzle? Or is there more to it? Whew, I think that makes sense. :)

RECAP

There are a couple of loose threads in here, which apparently just got abandoned when they started getting interesting...

Luke is a billionaire just for the sake of not having to take care of the expenses. It is not relevant why he is rich.
No issues in this puzzles are: Money, law, religion, any of the bride's wishes whatsoever, being the first to achieve something, or any other tasks beside the wedding.

Luke does not gain anything material by doing this, but just wants to impress people, mainly his friends.

Luke goes to Antarctica because of something happening only there. This something is not polar days or nights, but related to these. Sunrise is particularly relevant.

Luke carries out a plan to follow what can yopishly be called a rule or condition, which he has imposed on himself.

Is Luke trying to create a record? break a record?

Is Luke trying to make his wedding especially notable in some way?

well, everyone does, right? But there is a specific reason he went to Antarctica

HINT:
Leave Antarctica for a moment and explore how a rule or condition can be "yopish".
Also, some feature of Luke's person might be relevant.

Clarification:

The condition was made up by Luke himself, but the bride prompts him (with an ish) to take it literally. Still beware FA.

Does he understand that it's not meant to be taken literally? Yes Does he take it literally for the sake of humor? Possibly
For the sake of showing that he can? Yes

The fact that the directions East and West describe an ever tighter circle the farther South you go? The fast that almost the whole world is to the North? Almost nine to the South?

Kyeannpepper once informed me that "the solution to every problem is penguins". Since this puzzle is in the Antarctic and for some reason no one has asked yet, I must. (They may have been waiting for me to ask, knowing my obsession) Are penguins relevant to this puzzle? (And if not, why not?) Does Luke like penguins? Does he like Emperor or Adélie penguins better? Does he know the other species of penguins are not native to Antarctica?

If that turns out to be the case, I wonder why he wouldn't have chosen Hell, Norway...it's quite frequently frozen over. "Hell" in Norwegian means 'gentle slope' or so I am told.(I believe it, considering it's only one letter off from "hill"

All these are great ideas that might have worked even better than the original puzzle.
Actually, you have got the idea but we've run way beyond the finish line without noticing.
All the key parts have already been found, and you only have to put together what is already there.

When the sun rises in the North? Thats what he said, good job!


***SPOILER***

Luke was a lifelong bachelor, always convinced that he'd never marry. When asked, he used to boast "The sun will rise in the North before I marry",
and that phrase become quite famous among his aquaintances.

When he changed his mind, friends surely mocked him about his Sun rising in the North saying, but Luke surprised everyone to arrange a (quite costly) wedding in the Antarctic on the day before polar night, when the sun literally rises in the North (and is out only shortly) right before he got married.

Congratulations to Acridian for finally finishing this one, and thank you everyone for playing!



This puzzle was essentially inspired by an old mate from about 20 years ago, who informed me not so nicely that the sun would rise in the North before I'd be getting that one Girl. The drama that followed was quite amusing back then for everyone except me, and had given rise to two lateral puzzles a couple years ago, both titled "Far East of St Louis"
