PART ONE | the task roulette:
GO TO AN AMATEUR HOCKEY GAME. GET YOUR SURFBOARD WAXED.
- READ A NEWSPAPER ARTICLE BACKWARDS.
PART TWO | how I solved it:
+ 10 rows and 8 columns table with a cell of 3 units height and 3 units width,
+ 4 units from the top edge, vertically centred.
+ Each cell represents one word of the article; this however needs to have at least three letters to be considered for the task.
+ Because my mother tongue is Slovenian I executed this task in Slovenian.
+ I took random articles from the net, and as the task required read them backward, marking out all those words in which I was able to find another meaningful Slovenian word, that has at least three letters, but is neither a name nor interjection.
FOR EXAMPLE: word ZAGOTOVO (meaning : for sure) —> OVOTOGAZ —> TOG (meaning : rigid)
+ ALTHOUGH the article was read from the last word to the first, the results are marked from the upper left cell across to the right. If the word contained another word the cell is painted black, if no meaningful word was found within, the cell is left blank/white.
