Tillman's Puzzles Thread!

Recommended Posts

First of all, these are more about the logic of finding the answer than just knowing things already, so you're free to use Google, Wikipedia, IMDB, etc. Second, no complaining!


First puzzle...


Curious George


"You forgot Poland."


"It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one."


"A pint of sweat will save a gallon of blood."


"Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds."


"Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise."


Answer in the form of a name.

Moving on... (Mrs. J can't answer this next one because I've already talked to her about it.)




Last night, I had the craziest dream. You could say it was a nightmare at 20,000 feet, but it’s all in the eye of the beholder. I didn’t recognize anything, I was certainly in no time like the past. At last, I thought I had awakened, until I stepped out of my room to find a piano in the house and five characters in search of an exit.


Who am I?
