(LemonCurry) I know what you did second-to-last summer

Postby LemonCurry » Mon Mar 27, 2017 5:45 pm

Because Willy and Emily were no plumbers, Rebecca became the inaugural victim of George's vanity.

True story, except for the names. Everyone is HA and what their name suggests.

Do all four know each other? Are any biologically related? Married? Friends? Co-workers? Relevant?
Are either Rebecca or George plumbers?

Did Rebecca think that Willy and Emily were plumbers? Did George?

Is Willy's and Emily's job relevant? Rebecca's job? George's job?

Did Willy and Emily pretend to be plumbers? Attempt to do a job normally reserved for plumbers?
Did Rebecca or George attempt to do plumbing work?
If Willy and Emily were plumbers, would anyone still be a victim of George's vanity?

Were Willy and Emily involved in the design/creation/marketing of some kind of tool or reference that Rebecca used?

Did each of Willy and Emily do something distinct that was relevant to the puzzle? or is it more that they were part of a single entity that did whatever relevant thing it was they did? (i.e., is it relevant that both are included in the puzzle, or could it just as easily have been a single name?)

Just to make sure there aren't any tricksy word games going on, vanity = excessive pride in one's appearance? vanity = dressing table usually with a mirror?

Willy and Emily were acting as a team. There is no relevant distinction between them both

Do Willy and Emma ever meet Rebecca? Meet George? Do George and Rebecca ever meet?

Is there anything broken in Rebecca's house that would require a plumber? Had she actually called a plumber? Do Willy and Emma show up at her house unexpectedly when she was waiting for the plumber, so she mistakes them for plumbers? If so, are Willy and Emma door-to-door salespeople? Jehova's Witnesses? Mormons? collecting donations? collecting signatures? campaining?

No to these - but I expected someone to guess all those at this point...

Relevant what exactly is broken in Rebecca's house? Just insofar as she was REALLY waiting for the plumber - it was the heating in midwinter, and her kid had the flu...

Did W&E bring something relevant with them? yes Is there something relevant about their appearance that makes her think they are plumbers? no, they are mistaken for plumbers just because they had come to Rebecca's house at the time. Rebecca did realize they were no plumbers in a few seconds Are they there as a result of George? yes

Are they police officers?
Was Rebecca a "victim" in that she was injured? Killed? Embarrassed? Inconvenienced?

Does George relevantly live near Rebecca?

Did Willy and Emily target Rebecca's house specifically? all households in the area? all households that met a certain criterion?

Is Rebecca's child relevant to the solution?

Do they want the urine sample in order to check for drugs? this to check for a disease? to check for pregnancy?

Do they think that Rebecca has taken drugs? Does George think so? Has Rebecca actually taken drugs? Does she actually give them a urine sample?

Relevant which drug(s) they are checking for?

I think it's time for a RECAP

George is the president of the world chess federation and has imposed a new rule connected to doping, in order to be admired.

Rebecca is a chess player and has competed in an all-women's tournament some time ago and won a surprise third place.
Her Performance has declined sine then.

Willy and Emily are visiting Rebecca while she was waiting for the plumber. They are trying to collect a urine sample for a doping test, and Rebecca slams the door on them.

So did he select her for the test because of her surprise third? Also because of her subsequent lesser performance?
Is the rule basically that no performance-enhancing drugs are allowed in tournaments? Is he hoping to prove that she uses drugs in order to support his new rule and prove its importance? In that it might suggest why she did so well during that particular tournament?

Is George targeting people who did well in tournaments? People who did unusually well? Is his overarching motive relevant? Is he trying to legitimize chess in some way? Trying to make it be considered a sport? Making it an Olympic sport relevant?

So, as there are only minor Details open, let's put this one to rest:

SPOILER

In the early 2000's, the president of the World Chess Federation ("George"), tried to make chess an Olympic sport.
This was widely considered ridiculous and an act of personal vanity, and the only consequence was the introduction of doping tests into chess.

Possibly the first (and maybe even the only) chess player to be banned for failing a doping test was Monica G. from Austria ("Rebecca"),
who was found guilty of refusing a test under really silly circumstances:

Rebecca was only a modest player, but in the summer of 2007 she was on quite a winning streak and managed to qualify for the Austrian ladies' Championship an claim 3rd place there.
(there were not so many female master chess players in Austria at the time, and most of them would leave the ladies' Championship alone and rather compete with men). This success somehow put her on a list of top level athletes who were subject to doping tests.
In the winter of 2009, Rebecca had already forgotten about this success, was only a modest club player again, and on this day, she was desperately waiting for the plumber, as her heating was not working, and her kid was having the flu.

Then there was a ring on the door.

"Oh, thank goodness you've come so soo..."
"Good morning, we would like 75 millilitres of urine, please."
"WHAT THE $!#*?" *SLAM*

The doorbell rings again.

"Well, we were told you are a top level chess player, and so you are obliged to..."
"NO, I'm not!" *SLAM*

And so, Rebecca had refused a doping test...


Thank you for playing this puzzle. Hope you enjoyed it before it reached dead horse stage...
