It's a conspiracy to make me a more responsible student, isn't it?

This puzzle may be easier for one or two Lateralians. They are welcome to $p0i1 early.

The Spanish Inquisition? No. It couldn't be the Spanish Inquisition, because I know that you, Docta, would expect that, and no one expects the Spanish Inquisition. It is an irrefutable fact. If someone were to expect the Spanish Inquisition, it would create a paradox which might have the power to rip a hole in the fabric of reality itself.

Were you assigned to raise the flag each morning in the hopes that given you the responsibility of being in charge of the flag would get you to school on time? Similar to how teachers are told to make bullies hall monitors so they enforce proper behavior instead of bullying other students?

No. Similar to how teachers are told to make bullies hall monitors so they enforce proper behavior instead of bullying other students? No, but that is a good idea...

Is it a conspiracy to make only you a more responsible student? Or all students in your university? A group of them?

Responsible as in punctual? more conscientious? in studies? good behavior?

Are the conspirators H?A?M? Teachers? University board members? Parents?

Does it involve the campus cops opening your unlocked car doors, removing your valuables, replaced them with a note that says, "You've been robbed by Officer Smith. To get your stuff back, come see me at the station..." then locking your doors. And you had to sit through a lecture of how anyone could take your stuff if you left it unattended like that before you could get it back - They did that at my first university, though I heard it was ruled illegal the year after I left.


Is it assigning you grades?

Refusing to give you a syllabi with dates of assignments on it? making you pay for replacement id cards?

Were you a-sittin' on the flagpole? Nah. Title is only relevant to the puzzle statement, not the solution.

Is it a conspiracy to make only you a more responsible student? It would be, but lurking FA. Or all students in your university? A group of them? No to rest.

Responsible as in punctual? more conscientious? Closest to this. in studies? good behavior?

Are the conspirators H?A? Yes. M? Some. Teachers? University board members? Parents? No to rest.

Take care and have fun in the desert, Noobdog!

No, but that's incredible! Never heard of it before. Would make a good puzzle.

Does your school work involve computers? And working on moving my "you just can't win can you" puzzle into the recently solved forum will cause you to study more indepthly in your field of schoolwork?

I'm going to spoil this. Everyone's grown tired of it, including me, and I have others waiting in the wings. It wasn't great to begin with.

*****************SPOILER
I have Windows Vista, which I actually quite like except for one thing; it doesn't like websites that make windows pop-up and then quickly go away again, and will immediately shut them down. Two sites that do this are my school e-mail, through which all my professors contact me, and the page on lateralpuzzles.com used to move recently solved puzzles to the Recently Solved page.

I can't do this on my computer, so whenever I see that there are a lot of puzzles that need to be moved, I walk ten whole minutes to the first public computer so that I can use the page. However, the last few times I've done this, some other moderator has moved the puzzles as I was walking, making my trip pointless. While I'm at the working computer, I figure I might as well check my school e-mail, making me a more responsible student.

I think the other moderators are in a conspiracy to get me to do so.


On another note, the reason this and other solved puzzles might sit idle for about a week is because I currently don't have access to another computer. But I will soon.
