A challenge I intend to put somewhere in a story (possibly):

That might work better if you use a computer.

Q: But in Portal, all the logic is there. There is no time where you have to use a gun, or anything like that. You have one type of problem, the only difference is the variables. If a Professor Layton puzzle showed up, there would be complaints.

But in Portal, all the logic is there.

Is there anything that is not implied in the puzzle yet?

The main thing that just bugs me about this puzzle is it's set up to look a lot like a riddle, when in actuality it's more of a math problem. To me, the answer doesn't feel... I dunno, clever enough? It's hard to explain. Even as someone who enjoys logic problems, this one doesn't sit well with me because the answer doesn't strike me in an 'oh, why didn't I think of that?' sort of way.

But hey, I'm just picking nits like the nit-picker I am, so take the above with a grain of salt.
No one believes me when I say angels can turn their panties into guns.

See ALL the stars!
[up][up] Maybe short-circuit evaluation? That's normally not part of these type of logic puzzles.
Da Rules excuse all the inaccuracy in the world. Listen to them, not me.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
