This is the index of the rec.puzzles archive, taken from archive-request@questrel.com, and subsequently edited for HTML by Arlet Ottens. You can browse through the puzzles, and click on the Solution link to see the solution of the puzzle.
If you're e-mailing about a particular puzzle or solution, please mention at least the puzzle's name as it appears in the page. If the puzzle is not too long, please copy and paste the question and the solution, this makes it a lot easier for Arlet to know what you're talking about.

E-mail without a subject that says: "I think your solution is wrong, the man must be born on a wednesday" will usually be ignored. 
Bob 'Smut Boy' Terry and his humid drawers, er, humidors
Employees of Cookeville government are allowed to view the filth Bob 'Smut Boy' Terry sends to DA Bill Gibson and others.
It is located on the Internet linked to c.d. 'Sonny Boy' norman's all things Cookeville page, under this subheading:

NEW  The Monica Lewinsky Humidor  NEW
Where to find the disgusting filth that Police Chief Bob Terry
e-mailed to District Attorney Bill Gibson
All Funny Pictures

Sonny Boy created this link for Cookeville employees after City Mismanager Jimbo Dale 'I say who the press is around here' Shipley decided there is no punishment associated with viewing filth at work. By creating this link, Sonny Boy has saved employees the tedious work of having to surf for filth, which might have inadvertantly landed them on sites of some value.

Are you too smart to work for Cookeville?

If your IQ is higher than 100 you may never advance up the bureaucracy because you may be too smart to work for your boss. This is why Cookeville Police Chief Bob Terry, the candidate for the job with the least formal education, immediately did away with the written test requirement for advancement to command positions within the department. Hell, how smart do you have to be to pad your overtime card? If you score too high, keep trying until you bring it down between 75 and 90.
You'll be blissful you did.

collage by steev hiseDetritus- in nature, detritus is dead plant and animal matter that makes new life possible. The very bottom of the food chain, detritus is the rotting leaves in the forest, the silt on the bottom of the pond, the thick dark mud in the salt marsh. It sticks to your shoes, it smells, but someday it will be food for something else, and that something will be food in turn, on and on up the food chain until you pick it up in the supermarket and put it in your mouth.
