[Irishelk] A Capital Idea

Postby irishelk » Fri Jan 10, 2020 2:18 pm

Angelo often writes a lower-case letter in a certain spot. Sometimes, unfortunately, he must write the upper-case version of the same letter in the same spot.

Monthly? Weekly? Daily? Hourly? Minutely? Secondly? Oftener? Does he type the letter? Draw it? Project it? Place it? Carve it? Smudge it? Is the lower-case eltter symmetrical? Is the uppercase one?

letter = can we assume English alphabet (not Romani or Japanese or arabic)? Does the capital version of the letter have a different meaning? Does the capital version of the letter cover something relevantly? Is it printed? Are the letters (capital and non-capital version) drawn at a low scale? a very big scale? Is it the same letter every year?
does the low case version differ from the upper case equivalent for a relevant spelling/writing detail (e.g. dot on the "I")?Is the letter part of a relevant word? Is it written alone? Capital vs lower: when the letter written capital, is it written capital because it is after a period? Because it is grammatically correct to write it down capital? Because

Spot = a table? a piece of paper? a blackboard? a book? a billboard? a PC? a field? a piece of clothing? A device? a screen? up in the air? on a menu? does he write the letter with: pencil? pen? normal tools for writing? paint? brush? ink (e.g. tattoo)? a building (e.g. he forms a letter)?

Does he do it in the same relevant part of the year? Christmas? New Years Eve? Easter? Summer? Winter? Others? is religion relevant? culture? does he choose to write the letter capital or low case? is he compelled to do so? is he asked to do so? does he write it in public? is he a pilot of airplanes?

Relevant Angelo's work? Is his signature relevant? Calendars relevant? Can w assume that nobody reads the letter? Just one person? Do someone read the letter? If so, in order to check it? is writing upper or lower case letter due to: something happened during the year? Something that will happen? The previous letter written? Does he write the letter every year in the same spot? If so does he/someone else cancel out previous letters relevantly? Do the letters cancel out immediately? Automatically? Without any need of being cancelled?

Does he write it in clay? Sand? Blood? Crayon? Chalk? No to all.
Does he write one letter a year? He writes one many times. Is it i? v? w? x? No. Does someone read it? In some cases, yes. Is it bad for the reader? No. Is he sorry to have to write it? Glad? Both? Probably mixed feelings, yes. In some cases he would rather not have to. Indifferent? Does he need to rewrite it because it has been removed? Yesish. Cleaned? Yes. Weathered? Further smudged? Washed away? Bleached? Vandalized? Is he a vandal? No to rest.
Is the letter a signal? In some cases, yes. A secret signal? I'll say no, though in some cases most people will not understand its significance.


GalFisk

letter = can we assume English alphabet (not Romani or Japanese or arabic)? Yes. Does the capital version of the letter have a different meaning? Yes.
Does the capital version of the letter cover something relevantly? No. Is it printed? No. Are the letters (capital and non-capital version) drawn at a low scale? a very big scale? On the small side. Is it the same letter every year? Yes.
does the low case version differ from the upper case equivalent for a relevant spelling/writing detail (e.g. dot on the "I")? Yes, but not "i". Is the letter part of a relevant word? In some cases. Is it written alone? Yes. Capital vs lower: when the letter written capital, is it written capital because it is after a period? No. Because it is grammatically correct to write it down capital? Not particularly.

Spot = a table? a piece of paper? a blackboard? a book? a billboard? a PC? a field? a piece of clothing? A device? a screen? up in the air? on a menu? No to all.
does he write the letter with: pencil? pen? In some cases, yes (or a marker). normal tools for writing? paint? brush? ink (e.g. tattoo)? a building (e.g. he forms a letter)? For other cases, no to all.

Does he do it in the same relevant part of the year? Yes. Christmas? New Years Eve? Easter? Close, but not quite. Summer? Winter? Others? is religion relevant? YES. culture?
does he choose to write the letter capital or low case? is he compelled to do so? Not exactly, but in any given situation it would only make sense to do one o the other. is he asked to do so? Not explicity. does he write it in public? Yes. is he a pilot of airplanes? No.

Relevant Angelo's work? Yes. Is his signature relevant? No. Calendars relevant? Only in that time of year is relevant.
Can w assume that nobody reads the letter? No. Just one person? Do someone read the letter? In some cases, several people probably will.
If so, in order to check it? In a sense. is writing upper or lower case letter due to: something happened during the year? Something that will happen? The previous letter written? No.
Does he write the letter every year in the same spot? Yesish. To clarify: by "the same spot" I mean, if he were writing it in books, it would be on the same page in every book he wrote it in. If so does he/someone else cancel out previous letters relevantly? Not super relevant, but yes. Do the letters cancel out immediately? Automatically? Without any need of being cancelled? No to rest.

Are the letters meant to be interpreted as letters? As part of words? As symbols? Grades? Does he write the capital letter in response to something bad? Someone bad?

May I invoke the list of letters instead of calling them one by one? Does the letter describe an event? Something happening that day? During the year?

To be sure: does the capital version of the letter: imitate something (e.g. H imitates a closed pasaage,X a cross, T a closed street...)? Is the acronym of something (e.g
A.D.? B.C?) ? Covers something? Goes away from some boundaries?

Is he a priest? Yes--there is a more specific job title. Christianity relevant? This. Judaism? Islam? Taoism? Shintoism? Hinduism? Buddhism?
Does he write on a wall? Door? Building? Person? This!Outdoors? No to rest.
Are the letters meant to be interpreted as letters? In some cases yes, in some no. As part of words? In some cases. As symbols? In the other cases this. Grades? No. Does he write the capital letter in response to something bad? Yes. Someone bad? No. Do the letter cause any relevant effects? Sometimes, yes. Human responses? Sometimes, yes.


Earnest

May I invoke the list of letters instead of calling them one by one? You could, but isn't it more fun to figure it out without the list? :mrgreen: Does the letter describe an event? Not exactly. Something happening that day? There are relevant occurrences at these times. During the year?

To be sure: does the capital version of the letter: imitate something (e.g. H imitates a closed pasaage,X a cross, T a closed street...)? No. Is the acronym of something (e.g A.D.? B.C?) ? It stands for something, yes. Covers something? No. Goes away from some boundaries? Not sure what you mean, I think no.

Does he wrote on the head? face? Chest? Stomach? Leg? Foot? Hand? Arm? Back? Butt? Is the writing done during a ceremony? Something bad: something humans consider bad? Christianity considers bad? The person being written on considers bad?

Is he a bishop? Pope? Minister? Deacon? Archbishop? No, at least not relevantly.
Branch of Christianity relevant? There are several that this would apply to. Does he write on babies? Children? Teens? Adults? This, no to rest. Old people? Dead people?
Does this happen in modern times? Yes, could be 18th-21st century I think. Ancient? Medieval? Renaissance?
Does he write on the same human more than once? Probably, but not relevant. If so, can he write a lower-case letter on a human after having written an upper-case one? Possibly, but less likely than the reverse. does he write on men? Yes. Women? Possibly. Does he wrote on the head? face? This. Chest? Stomach? Leg? Foot? Hand? Arm? Back? Butt?
Is the writing done during a ceremony? In some cases. Something bad: something humans consider bad? Yes. Christianity considers bad? Generally, yes. The person being written on considers bad? Yes.


Balin

To piggyback on an Earnest q: Does the lowercase version of the letter imitate something? Yesish, or at least I'm using artistic license in calling it a letter... Is it a lowercase t for a cross? YES.


Earnest

Baptism relevant? Like baptism to an adult (upper case) vs batism to a child (lowercase) No, but good thought.

is the cross lower or upper case depending on which spot on the face he writes it down? In the upper case case does he make a cross over the whole face (i.e. the ends of the cross are respectively: forehead, chin and cheeks?)?
Is the upper case made slowly? Made when someone dies? During a funeral? Does it have a christian meaning? Can we assume that he makes the cross in front of the human'? Or maybe Behind his shoulder?


WAG: lower case during weddings. Upper case during funerals?

lower case cross made on the mouth? On the forehead? is more than a cross made? cross = sign of forgiveness? after having prayed? after having received holy host? after being awarded an office?


No, though death may sometimes occur in these situations. --> wars? illnesses? danger? crimes? suicide? death of the one whose face is signed by the capital T? of someone else?

upper case: made to a specific person? To many people? to priests? When someone is condemned? heresy relevant? made also on the face of humans? made during a christian event? a mass? lashes relevant? divorce relevant? Wedding? Celebrations?

Capital t = T? or a big cross?

Does it have a christian meaning? The upper case, no --> interesting...so is it a gesture? a sign? good lack relevant? a generic sign (e.g. indicating danger/death)? Is the upper case version made instead oof the cross? In the opposite situation? Without any connection with the cross? Can it be made also together with the cross? Mafia relevant? Sign of killing?

Ash Wednesday, I’m guessing, yes? Is the upper case made in the same general context? Or on other days? Made with the same method as the cross? Same location? Is the T made right-side up?

is the faith of people receiving the capital T relevant (e.g. they want to receive a blessing but they do not believe and hence a capital T is made on their forehead resembling a cross) ? Are the ones receiving the capital T: soldiers People in general? Prisoners? People hiding? Do they relevantly have an helmet? Is the capital T made with ash? Does it distinguish some people from someone else?

Is the capital T the abbreviation of something? Does he act as a priest when making the capital T on the forehead of people? As a soldier? Is the capital T a target?

to be sure: he is not a painter right?

soldiers YES --> assuming Angelo was either oppressed or oppressor, are the soldier invader? Did he consider them his enemies? Prisoners? Did he write the capital T on the face of every soldier? Also soldiers that were on his side? Did soldier go to him in order to receive a blessing? Did he go in trenches? Did he blessed soldiers before an attack? After an attack?
Was the capital T written with ash as well? Written in a way that it was visible after it had been written on the forehead of soldiers? E.g. he used a knife to do so (an incision on human forehead)? Or another weapon (e.g. bullets having a capital T written on them)? Do other soldiers write capital T on the forehead of soldiers? Of enemy soldiers?

Did he signal something? Classify someone? Do soldiers voluntarily come to him for having a capital T written on their forehead? Did soldiers relevantly know that he is a priest?

We said that he writes the capital letter in response to something bad. Something bad that happened to the soldier that he signs with capital T? To him? Something bad that happened due to the soldier? Against the soldier (e.g. a wound? gas? infection?)? Is the capital T a permanent sign on the soldiers skin? Does something happen to the soldier once he receives the capital T? Something bad? Had he written the capital T on the helmet of soldiers, would the puzzle have worked?

Is the capital T the abbreviation of something? YES. --> something in English? In latin? In another language (e.g. Italian since his name is Italian....T = tedesco meaning "German")? does T stand for a military term? Something referred to the military? A physical characteristic of the soldier?

soldiers YES --> assuming Angelo was either oppressed or oppressor, are the soldier invader? Irr. Did he consider them his enemies? No. Prisoners? No.Did he write the capital T on the face of every soldier? No. Also soldiers that were on his side? Yes. Did soldier go to him in order to receive a blessing? Not in regard to the capital T. Did he go in trenches? Or on the battlefield generally, yes. Did he blessed soldiers before an attack? After an attack? Not relevantly.
Was the capital T written with ash as well? No. Written in a way that it was visible after it had been written on the forehead of soldiers? Yes... E.g. he used a knife to do so (an incision on human forehead)? No. Or another weapon (e.g. bullets having a capital T written on them)? No. Do other soldiers write capital T on the forehead of soldiers? Likely yes, for svv of "other soldiers." Of enemy soldiers? Not relevantly, but possibly.

Did he signal something? Yes. Classify someone? Sort of. Do soldiers voluntarily come to him for having a capital T written on their forehead? They don't come to him, no. Did soldiers relevantly know that he is a priest? Not relevantly.

We said that he writes the capital letter in response to something bad. Something bad that happened to the soldier that he signs with capital T? Yes. To him? No. Something bad that happened due to the soldier? Against the soldier (e.g. a wound? This. gas? infection?)? Is the capital T a permanent sign on the soldiers skin? No. Does something happen to the soldier once he receives the capital T? Yes. Something bad? No. Had he written the capital T on the helmet of soldiers, would the puzzle have worked? Basically, but this would not work as well practically.

Is the capital T the abbreviation of something? YES. --> something in English? Yes. In latin? In another language (e.g. Italian since his name is Italian....T = tedesco meaning "German")? It works in some other languages, but not Italian I think. does T stand for a military term? No. Something referred to the military? Only in that they are in the military and are using it. A physical characteristic of the soldier? Yesish, explore.

Is fhe soldier tranported? Taken away from the battlefield? Are grades relevant? Is there someone else helping him? Making other letters on soldiers'heads?

Physical charachteristic of soldier: color of hair/eyes? Disfigured soldiers? Killed soldiers without any sign that allow to recognise him? Soldiers wounded by a particular weapon?

Is fhe soldier tranported? Taken away from the battlefield? Likely yes. Are grades relevant? No. Is there someone else helping him? Helping Angelo? Probably, irr. Making other letters on soldiers'heads? Possibly.

Do soldiers receive the T when: fainted? Not necessarily. While lying down on battlefield? Likely. When they are not able to carry on fighting? Yes. Is he neutral to the war? Irr. Does he help with wounded soldiers? Yes. Did he signal if soldiers are wounded Yes... by bullets? Other objects? Irr what they were injured with. Interrogations relevant? No. Does he leave soldiers after having signed them? Probably, at some point. Help them? Yes. Mines relevant? Not specifically.

Physical charachteristic of soldier: color of hair/eyes? Disfigured soldiers? DOYD, but I'd say no. Killed soldiers without any sign that allow to recognise him? Soldiers wounded by a particular weapon? No to all.

T = tortured? No. Is it a single word? Yes. A verb? No.

Does the T signify that the soldier is dying? Not necessarily, but seriously injured. Ill? No. A traitor? No.

Does he intervene after a conflict? When wounded are collected? Or during the fights? Relevant? Did her intervene in a specific conflict? Or we can assume a generic conflict in a generic location? Can we assume modern times also?
Capital T standing for: Terminal? Trauma? Trench?

Is it usual to sign wounded soldiers with capital T on their heads when wounded? Is it done in every kind of battle? Just in specific battles?

Does he establish whether someone has hope to live or not? Has hope to be cured? Needs specific cures?

Did he signal if soldiers are wounded Yes... --> did he signal it to everyone? Just to someone? Does the sign "protect" wounded people? Does T stand for a term that means wounded? Wounded soldier? Not able to carry on fighting? Outside of the conflict? Neutral? Unable to fight? a word that saves them from death? A word that is understood by enemies? If two enemies soldiers lie wounded on the battlefield, would he sign both with the T?Is his help needed depending on where the battle is fought? Does the word refer to the soldier? To the wound?

If someone lies faking to be wounded, does he sign him? Does the word deal with: being wounded? Needing some cures? "Just wounded" implying "come and finish him"?

To be sure: T is the initial letter of the word signaled right? Acronym WIA relevant (wounded in action)? Is the T relevantly seen by doctors? By people curing the wounded soldiers? By other soldiers? By people transporting wounded soldiers? Others? Are they seen from helicopters? From the sky? Are signaled people relevantly left on the ground? Others? Do people seeing the T know what it does mean? Had he made a generic sign would it have been the same? Does he just to T on the forehead of wounded soldiers? Does it depend on something?

Does he intervene after a conflict? When wounded are collected? Or during the fights? Relevant? Irr, let's say after. Did her intervene in a specific conflict? Or we can assume a generic conflict in a generic location? This. Can we assume modern times also? Yes.
Capital T standing for: Terminal? Trauma? Trench? Nope, good guesses.

Is it usual to sign wounded soldiers with capital T on their heads when wounded? Not with every case, but sometimes. Is it done in every kind of battle? It is not always done, but the type of battle doesn't matter. Just in specific battles?

Does he establish whether someone has hope to live or not? Has hope to be cured? No. Needs specific cures? Yesish.

Did he signal if soldiers are wounded Yes... --> did he signal it to everyone? No. Just to someone? To specific people. Does the sign "protect" wounded people? In a way, yes.
Does T stand for a term that means wounded? Wounded soldier? Not able to carry on fighting? Outside of the conflict? Neutral? Unable to fight? The word does not mean any of these things, no. Good line of questioning though.

a word that saves them from death? Not in most cases, but it often saves them from something. A word that is understood by enemies? Irr. If two enemies soldiers lie wounded on the battlefield, would he sign both with the T? Irr. Is his help needed depending on where the battle is fought? No.
Does the word refer to the soldier? To the wound? Neither exactly, but to something else specific.

If someone lies faking to be wounded, does he sign him? No. Does the word deal with: being wounded? Not just this. Needing some cures? Yes. "Just wounded" implying "come and finish him"? In a sense, if I understand you right.

To be sure: T is the initial letter of the word signaled right? Yes. Acronym WIA relevant (wounded in action)? No.
Is the T relevantly seen by doctors? Yes. By people curing the wounded soldiers? Yes. By other soldiers? By people transporting wounded soldiers? Others? No to rest.

Are they seen from helicopters? From the sky? Are signaled people relevantly left on the ground? Others? No. Do people seeing the T know what it does mean? Yes. Had he made a generic sign would it have been the same? Only if the people seeing it knew what it meant. Does he just to T on the forehead of wounded soldiers? Not all wounded soldiers, but some. Does it depend on something? Yes.

Is the T relevantly seen by doctors? Yes. By people curing the wounded soldiers? Yes. --> did doctors take precautions when they see the T? Adopt a procedure? Cure the soldier? Give a medicine to the wounded soldier before transporting him? leave the soldier there? Call someone? Kill the soldiers? Does the T refer to the weight of the soldier? Is it assigned to soldiers likely to die soon? Likely to die? To be cured with priority? Does it refer to the nationality of the soldier? To an info that can be found in his identity card? To an info that is evident/clear/available only after the soldier has been wounded? Is it given to soldiers being wounded in particular places? In particular positions? Covering a specific role? Having tattoos? T = Tattoeed? Toxin (to help the soldier to die)? trioxide? The name of a poison? The name of a cure that doctors had? The name of a drug? The name of a beverage? The name of a tool? To the first thing to ask/search? T = testament? the method of transportation needed? Is the t capital because also the name it refers to begins normally with the capital? Is it the name of someone?

seriously injured --> with a missing arm or leg? bled/drain? Relevant?

Maybe a guess: relevant that he goes before the doctor to help wounded soldiers? Does he give a sort of "first aid" to wounded soldiers that are able to run/escape the fight/react? Had doctors gone with him (suppose that doctors are soldiers as well right? But are more precious than simple soldiers and hence are in the rears, right? Relevant?) would it be necessary to put a T on the wounded soldiers?

Are dictatorships relevant? Can we assume any nationality of the soldiers? US?

Is T related to a disease? Tuberculosis? An injury? No to these. A medical condition? Vaguely, yes. Something the soldier is? Was? Has? This is most accurate. Did? Traitor? No. does the soldier who gets it know what the T means? Know why they get it? They'd probably understand, or it could be explained.

Is the T relevantly seen by doctors? Yes. By people curing the wounded soldiers? Yes. --> did doctors take precautions when they see the T? Yes. Adopt a procedure? Likely yes. Cure the soldier? Presumably, eventually. Give a medicine to the wounded soldier before transporting him? leave the soldier there? Call someone? Kill the soldiers? No to rest.
Does the T refer to the weight of the soldier? Is it assigned to soldiers likely to die soon? Likely to die? To be cured with priority? Does it refer to the nationality of the soldier? To an info that can be found in his identity card? To an info that is evident/clear/available only after the soldier has been wounded? Is it given to soldiers being wounded in particular places? Not exactly, although they would only be wounded in certain places. In particular positions? Covering a specific role? Having tattoos? T = Tattoeed? Toxin (to help the soldier to die)? trioxide? The name of a poison? No to rest.
The name of a cure that doctors had? Not a cure exactly, but a medical thing.The name of a drug? The name of a beverage? The name of a tool? Yes. To the first thing to ask/search? Yesish, it is information that needs to be known immediately. T = testament? the method of transportation needed? No. Is the t capital because also the name it refers to begins normally with the capital? Not necessarily. It is capitalized mostly by convention and to be clear. Is it the name of someone? No.

seriously injured --> with a missing arm or leg? No...but... bled/drain? They have not been bled, but they have likely lost blood, yes. Relevant? The general features of the wound are relevant.

Maybe a guess: relevant that he goes before the doctor to help wounded soldiers? Yes. Does he give a sort of "first aid" to wounded soldiers Yes! that are able to run/escape the fight/react? Not necessarily. Had doctors gone with him (suppose that doctors are soldiers as well right? But are more precious than simple soldiers and hence are in the rears, right? Relevant?) would it be necessary to put a T on the wounded soldiers? If the doctors were right there, he could speak to them rather than making the mark. But they would not be there.

Are dictatorships relevant? No. Can we assume any nationality of the soldiers? US? Yes, that works.

Extreme unction relevant?

Is Angelo a military priest, such as a chaplain? Is he working at a field hospital? Triage relevant?
