I think this is a good one. Badger sent it to me to work out because he couldn't do it. You have to figure out how 12 people turn into 13 people. It's easy once if you think about it.

To prevent spoiling it, PM me with the answer, and I'll announce if you got it right. Don't post the answer here or it prevents other people from solving it.

...no it doesn't. It just shows you what the question says, You're not meant to work out how to turn it from 12 people into 13 people, you're meant to work out HOW shifting the upper portions of their bodies introduces an extra person, despite nothing new being added. foo'

Hey, I tried&#33;

Well, I stared at the picture for about 10 minutes. I consider that trying.

When I can&#39;t do puzzles I feel like a failure, so I have to sit there and try until I get it.
