    Take 6 pennies or any 6 coins the same and put them on table in an inverted "V" : you'll have one straight line with 4 coins intersecting another straight line of 3 coins. Like this (ignore he dots)

    Puzzle? It's an angle.

    So far I'm not seeing the excitement... Is this one of those "you have to experience it for yourself" deals?

    Sorry, I'll be quiet while you finish.

The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    OK, it used to look like an inverted V.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Well, it's making my head hurt and I'm not even excited.

    detective, we're missing something. Firstly, whatever figure you've drawn in the OP is not translating well. Additionally, we cannot figure out the implications of what the arrangement means.
    Our current plan for Universal Iron Lung coverage, just sayin'.

    Good thing the March of Dimes worked. How, why?

    Alternately, for those with a tool shed, ideas, or creative loved ones to tell..

    so, you need to "change"?
