    You're definitely on the right track, you'll get it soon enough. EDIT: I think I'm doing it wrong and you might be right, I'll have to look at it again. I didn't remember the exact #s for the puzzle, just the concept. EDIT AGAIN: wtf, I'm having a brain fart too. I'm gonna end up beating myself up over a puzzle that I'm supposed to know the answer to.

    Are you sure this is supposed to be a perfect cube and not rectangular?

    I found some VERY similar puzzles, but none of the problems have a perfect square.

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    The same methodology for solving the rectangle will solve the cube poser.

    There can only be two answers - 30 feet and 18.6 feet

    Perhaps a human sprayed him with a poison...and he's tough enough not to die but still became paralyzed?
