My Worst Problem

"Jornal do Solucionismo" somewhere in the 90's

That one resulted from kind of a bet with the paper's editor, Gerd Giebel. The idea is good, but seemingly hard to present properly. Actually, no one of the readers sent the correct solution, but a strong solver from Rio de Janeiro (sorry for not remembering right now his name) came with a COOK - well, it was a nastilly ugly cook, though - and I had to present a new version, and this new version aroused a very significant silence... No more cooks, and not even a correct solution...
