Since this is the time of year for Easter eggs, here is a Chinese puzzle. The object is to break the egg into nine pieces, as shown, and rearrange them into the shape of a bird. Hundreds of distinct birds can be made by arranging the nine pieces in different ways.
So here is a competition. Whoever produces the best selection of birds and sends the drawings to firstname.lastname@example.org will win the right to nominate a charity to which I shall send $100.
Happy Easter to one and all!
