This, and most of the other 'lateral thinking' puzzles are a bit of a waste of time as there are usually (especially with this one) a very large number of rules or sequences of events which would give the outcome.
Many 'correct' answers have been mentioned here, but you have marked them all as WRONG as they are not the rule you had in mind.

BTW, MY Instructables get between 3 and 5 million views every week.
The statement above is true - How?
(Thank you Scott Adams for the idea.)

He cannot eat foods without B and S next to eachother, in that order. -PKT P.S. I love your riddles.

Your answer is incorrect, but thank you. I will try to make more riddles.

What do you mean by "I get over 500+ views a week" - what figures are you looking at? L
Bert99 (author)  lemonie8 years ago
Never mind.
Its not that we want you to leave Bert, We just want those precious minutes of life back that you took from us when we made the mistake of clicking on one of your instructables, or one of these abominations your putting everybody through now. Seriously. It all boils down to you wasting peoples' time. Stop doing that, and everyones cool.

I am actually interested ? L
. I think you caught him in, uhhh, a bit of hyperbole (trying to learn the art of British Understatement heehee). See Kiteman's excellent analysis in his May 10, 2009. 3:46 PM post.
Chicken's right too, no one cares about being featured on another one of your crappy 'ibles. Eh, thats not true, I do like to print them out and use them as toilet paper.

By what count?

Your highest-viewed project has only averaged 100 views per week,

Most of your projects are only illustrated with googled photos.

One is illustrated with an utterly-irrelevant photo lifted from elsewhere on this site.

One consists solely of "watch this video that isn't mine".

I'd guess that most of your views are actually car-crash views.
Yeah, Bert's ibles aren't very...instructive.

jerry is an octopus
Jerry was a race car driver.....
Bert99 (author)  paganwonder8 years ago
. Sounds like a great answer to me.

These frequent "puzzles" are not original, are certainly tedious, and I am willing to bet that one of your future "instructables" will simply be these questions with answers that you could not be bothered to work out yourself. Probably illustrated with pointlessly-irrelevant googled images.
He only eats food that he can boil alive because Jerry is a sadist. He cannot hurt tofu because tofu is already dead, and he doesn't have a pot big enough for a whole deer.

He can only eat food that has an odd number of letters in it's name.
lobster = 7
tofu = 4
crabs = 5
deer meat = 8

P.S.-If I'm right, then he can eat deer meat because it's actually called venison (7)

He can only eat seafood? -PKT
Bert99 (author)  PKTraceur8 years ago
A hint?
Bert99 (author)  PKTraceur8 years ago
It would not be fair to give a hint.
Allergic to a specific protein? Can only eat white meat? Can only eat what he catches himself on a small island with no terrestrial 4 legged herbivores or hippie stores?
