Interested in a Waymarking riddle?

Recommended Posts

Here's a little riddle for you. What we are looking for is a specific waymark. I will give you some hints for a start and will add more hints every now and then. If you think, that this is a stupid idea, please stop reading and go out and take some photos. :-) Ok, here we go:

 

  1. The waymark is in a European country.
  2. The waymark owner is from Canada.
  3. More than 12% of all the waymarks in that country are owned by that Canadian waymarker.

 

I think that a very clever person would find that these three hints are enough to find the waymark I'm looking for, but maybe I'm wrong. I will post additional hints tomorrow, if necessary. Whoever is the first to find the right waymark, may start with another Waymarking riddle.

I have the answer, but my problem is to create another riddle...

If that Canadian waymarker owns 12% of all the waymarks in that country, do we have enough information to identify the specific waymark?

That was tricky.  Well played.  WM848X

Wow, that was fast. Next time I have to make it a little more difficult. Ok, Alfouine, you can post a riddle whenever you like and in the meantime, we are awaiting elyob's riddle.

My first guess: WM7WP ?

That one doesn't appear in the database, or at least it doesn't for me.

Haven't a clue. It could be one of mine, but mine are only about 2 or 3 miles north of the 49th, so I doubt it.

A guess - somewhere in the south Pacific?

OK - how about the object farthest from where you're sitting at the moment which contributes to a Waymark ?

Do I need to give a hint?

 

 

Silence... ... ...

Ok. Here's a hint - If one were to start here on Earth and travel in a straight line at a speed of Warp 9.9, it would take 1.867016 million years,  or 1 million, 867 thousand and 16 days, (give or take a few days) to arrive at the object in question. That should make it easy peasy!

One caveat - this calculation does not take into account the object's observed red shift and apparent velocity away from Earth, which would, given its red shift of .597, add considerably to the travel time. For the sake of simplicity, though, we'll ignore that factor.

Well, no, not really. We'd have to define the exact location of the "Big Bang", which, I suppose, could be at the centre of the present universe. Wallace, Idaho lays claim to that accolade, among others. That was Waymarked by the dear, departed BruceS, by the way. AND we're looking for a specific location, or object.

 

So, try again - and remember that it's WAAAAAY out there!

If I'm right this is one of mine (and one of my favourites) so I waited for a while in case anyone else worked it out.

Again, no, sorry! You have to think much, much, much, much, much much farther away. 

Travelling at "a  speed of Warp 9.9,  it would take 1.867016  million  years" to get there. 

Warp 9.9 is  3,053 times the speed of light. At that speed the nearest star is only 14 hours away.

So, think BIG and FAAAAAAAAAAARRRR!

I do like your Waymark though. That's one to be proud of!

or maybe   Waymark Code: WMJPFQ

Icarus, whose official name is MACS J1149+2223 Lensed Star 1, is the farthest individual star ever seen. It is only visible because it is being magnified by the gravity of a massive galaxy cluster, located about 5 billion light-years from Earth.

Admittedly, you have found an object even more distant than the object in question.

However, the object in WMJPFQ is the asteroid Icarus, not MACS J1149+2223 Lensed Star 1, so, unfortunately, it doesn't count. Icarus, the asteroid, is mere millions of miles from us, not billions of light years.

The answer to the riddle is only about 1/3 the distance of MACS J1149+2223.

Don't give up - I'm sure you'll get it eventually.

Or, on the other hand, Waymark MACS J1149+2223 Lensed Star 1 and I'll have to change the answer...:)

West First Avenue in Colville, Washington.

Why? because there is a Feed Store on the other side. A National Historic Place feed store, at that.

TAAAA DAAAA!!!! Bingo!!!

fi67 is on a roll today!!!

Well DONE!

And it is now his turn for a brain teaser! (Unless Alfouine should choose to step in. Haven't heard from him yet.)

Why does WMQXDN not return a hit when I search for it from the "Home" Page? Others do, but not that one. Luckily, I had copied it and was able to find where I had put it (which often isn't the case).

OK, I guess you'll have to give us more info so we can see this waymark. Search doesn't find it.

Hang on. I'm going to change my answer. I couldn't see what Thierry might be referring to in his riddle. The only sensible thing I can see is that he is referring to the previous post or the previous riddle, making the answer 2) A waymark in California, United States

Find what you have to find is also part of a riddle, if you find these 3 waymarks, you have the answer, if you find first the answer, you have these waymarks.

 

@vulture1957 : No
