Bi-Curiosities: Threesomes

Coming at you like a thief in the night, here’s your next headscratcher, friends and neighbors. In keeping with the wow-that-seems-easy-by-comparison trend, today we have a simple task for you all. After the jump you’ll see a collage of thirty images. Your job is to arrange the images into groups of three (by category, not spatially). Which categories? What might they have in common? Well, that’s the puzzle. You’ll probably come up with a few categories that’ll fit three of the pictures provided, but don’t be too hasty. There’s only one way to get all 30 images into ten separate categories and leave no orphans or overlaps. (Yes, that means each image will only fit into one category when all’s said and done.)

Sound easy? Who cares, it’s probably tougher than it seems. Not necessarily tricky, but tough. You get two weeks to figure out how to a-trois all these menages together. When you believe you have categories sussed out, you can check with me by writing to the usual email address (puzzleminz@gmail.com) and tell me the category theme and the images that go in it. I’ll write you back to say yea or nay. This is in lieu of giving out hints for this puzzle. So yeah, no hints this time around.

Your reward? Five points for every category correctly identified. (This INCLUDES an explanation for what unites the items in the category. You don’t get credit for just guessing at a threesome but not knowing why they belong together.) So that’s a potential for 50 points right there. And…and…whosoever manages to get all ten categories properly identified gets a Bonus 20 points on top of the bargain. Such a deal! And for this you get your usual two weeks. Final answers due before midnight on May 3.

General questions and inquiries can be submitted in the comments section, or write to me. Best of luck, and remember: somewhere in the ancient mystic trinity, you get three as a magic number.bicuriosity
