Greetings Infomaniacs,

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

Wheresoever I may be,
Every man must follow me;
He must go where I may lead,
Though it be to change his creed.
Though I vary in my size,
I am still beneath your eyes;
and though you may go astray,
I must ever lead the way.
Every creature in the land,
Has me close at his command,
For I lead to things unseen,
By my properties so keen.

What am I?

ANSWER: Your nose.

Enjoy!
