    As a Sudoku purist, I get sort of upset when people have to write the little numbers in the boxes.
    You're one of those people I want to stone on the Metro! Hissss!

    Even though I don't play, I'm thinking to myself are people doing this in ink? Can you even see any empty spaces in your little number box?

    Oh great Internet, share with me the hidden answers to all of the questions I might have:

    creating puzzles (by hand)

    grading puzzles

    I thought the grading was pretty interesting with some of the terminology (hidden/naked singles, pairs, triples, quads & locked candidates). I was hoping for something more poetic on the creation other than what seemed like just brute force to me. I will keep asking the Internet for clarity.

    Actually, I use a black Sharpie. Not to brag or anything.

    I sometimes like sudoko, but I always end up bored half way through or I can never find a pencil and I do it in pen then it gets messy and I can't stand the sight of all the crossed out numbers (they make me feel stupid), I think if I actually owned pencils I'd like it better. But I hate pencils so...

    3 minutes? Impressive. I usually do one on my train ride home, 20 minutes.

    I rock at Sudoku- I love it!
    It was a pastime of mine and some of my friends in Bio class during high school- we would steal our teacher's Sudoku puzzles and she would get pissed.

    If I spend a lot of time on one puzzle- it usually means I made a crappy mistake somewhere
    The one bad thing about Sudoku..

By counting the first Sunday as zero (ie not including it at all and making their question very imprecise as it should be "from the end of one Sunday to the beginning of the next) you get 7 days not 8.

    Bloomin confusing

    Oddly though I had no problem with Algebra and even Calculus (once they told me why it was useful).

    If I have to remember a number then I play with it. The local sandwich shop is 431903. It's all 10s. 4+3+3=10 0=10 (on a die) 9+1=10

    Strange but true.

    Either that or for short term retention I add a beat or a tune. Those I can recall. I still remember the words to songs I first heard when I was a teen

    I've also become addicted to the brain training game on the DS. I got it for my kids but got sucked in. For years my math-enthusiast friend has been trying to get me into sudokus (and crosswords too) but has been met by supreme indifference. I've never had much patience for brain-teasers. Unless there's a point to it, I can't motivate myself.

    That game however, with its graphs and rankings and stuff has given me a motive: competition!

    I did my first ever sudoku last week, it was one of the basic ones and I did it in about 9 minutes. I've got it down to about 6 or 7 now and I'm getting bored of them.
