Greetings Infomaniacs,

Congratulations to Randy Micke who won this week's "Mind Scrambler". Here was the scrambler:

I am word with six letters.
My motto is together as one.
If you remove my first and second letters, you can wear me.
If you remove my third letter I can be painful.
If you remove my second, third and sixth letters, Adam & Eve did it.
If you remove my second and third letters, you do this using your mouth.
What am I?

ANSWER: String. A string ties objects together. You wear a ring, a sting hurts, according to the Bible, Adam & Eve committed a sin and you sing with your mouth.

Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

Koalas aren't big drinkers. They can survive on sufficient water by licking dew from leaves.

***

Due to their low-calories diet, they sleep a lot, between 18 to 22 hours a day. In the evening, they look for food.

***

They are well suited to sit on trees, as they have extra thick fur on their bottoms, a cartilaginous pad at the base of their spines and a curved skeletal structure.

***

About 80 per cent of koalas have the venereal disease of chlamydia. A side effect is it makes them incontinent, and the leaking urine can make them pretty stinky.

***

Koalas live for 10 years on average, though they can live longer than that. Female koalas usually produce one koala a year.

***

They are among a few animals that are like humans in that they have fingerprints.
