I have to confess I read the JavaScript to find the solution. Others have pointed this loophole out but I don't see anyone saying they actually used it. If you're at all serious about keeping the answer secret -- if it's not all tongue-in-cheek -- then I strongly recommend that you axe the JavaScript version or at the very least bury the key algorithm.

This is my own little weakness, by the way. I have very little patience with brainteasers but I also hate not knowing the answer, so I'll often take an out like this pretty quickly. I'm not going to spill it. What I still don't know is what the name has to do with it... either something to do with the petal geometry or else (as hinted by someone else posting here) perhaps a saying I'm not familiar with. That'll be my part of the puzzle, I guess.

Regards...

It would be better if those choosing to divulge the solution would email, so not to give away to all. Thanx.....

Cheers! Very Happy MoonDog

If you really are serious about finding the answer, just Google it. I hate puzzles like this and I usually cheat to find the answer.

I came here, struggled a bit, found the answer after about 20 throws, and was happy. As a great altruist, I decided to show this website to a few friends to spread hapiness in the world, sadly, the javascript file is so easy to find that none off them had to tickle their brain to find the solution... fun spoiled ... Why dont you restrict the access to the files ? with htaccess for example ?

Poor deluded souls.

The JavaScript gives you the algorithm, not the solution. Some people never get the solution even when they know the algorithm.
