On the Subject of Discolour Flash

Dictum Twondoh: "Youth may be wasted on the young but it's better than watching the old do their waste into the mouth of madness." (I can still taste it.)

  • A Discolour Flash module cycles through nine displays with no break between repeats.
  • Each display has nine properties:
    1. The meaning of the displayed word.
    2. The colour of the displayed word.
    3. The language the displayed word is translated into.
    4. The font the displayed word is written in.
    5. The punctuation marks appended to the displayed word.
    6. The pattern that appears on the Yes button when the No button is highlighted.
    7. The colour of the pattern that appears on the Yes button when the No button is highlighted.
    8. The symbol that appears on the No button when the Yes button is highlighted.
    9. The position of the symbol that appears on the No button when the Yes button is highlighted.
  • Assign each property of each display to its corresponding cell in the tables below.
  • Exactly one group of three displays correspond to cells that satisfy the following for all nine properties:
    • The three cells lie on the same row or all different rows.
    • The three cells lie on the same column or all different columns.
    Submit only these three displays.
  • Press the Yes button to submit a display.
    Submitted displays are italicised.
    The submissions are checked once the third submission is made.
  • Press the No button to clear the submissions.
