TriAd is a simple game: I give you three adjectives, you tell me what I'm describing. All of the answers have something to do with Lincoln.
  1. Pink. Cheap. Gone.
  2. Left. Middle. Right.
  3. Straight. Alphabetical. Wider.
  4. Little. Stinky. Award-winning.
  5. Red. Kinetic. Steel.
  6. Artificial. Two-toned. Hallowed.
  7. Colorful. Garage. Office.
  8. Country. Hoarse? Green?


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

2. The seriously confused bike lanes downtown?  I’m was slaloming down 14th Street the other day trying to stay out of the bike lane, avoid being in the right-turn-only lane and avoiding a truck double parked in the only remaining open lane.

1. Yep! (that was easy)
2. No, but that’s a pretty good guess
3. Yep!
4. No, but I second your LOL, Fletch
5. Nope. I assume you mean Old Glory. It is red and steel, but not kinetic.
6. Yep!
7. Yep!

5. Whatever that sculpture is called outside of Energy Square (12th and O)

5. Yep, that’s the one, Karin!

That leaves 2, 4, and 8.

2. Opinions about the Journal Star?  KIDDING—let’s not start that again.

January 26, 2007 at 8:16PM

Haha, I was going to guess

2. Neal, Mr Wilson, Dave K

Heh, yep, I was going for the LJS with that one. What can I say, I’m ornery. 😊

Are we ever going to get more hints, or the answers to numbers 4 and 8? The suspense is killing me.

Mr. Wilson

Oops, sorry to leave you hanging! Here are a couple hints:

4. Encircled. (You’re going to say that’s not much of a hint, but I’m having a hard time coming up with another hint that isn’t a dead giveaway.)
8. Amphibious? (The question marks might be throwing you off. Don’t think too hard; this one is actually pretty easy.)

Additionally, I never did mention the name of #5. It’s Solar Semaphore.

January 30, 2007 at 9:12PM

Wow, I still haven’t a clue. LOL Thanks for the hints, though.

OK, people, it seems you’ve given up. I’ll just go ahead and give the answers:

4. Lincoln Children’s Zoo.
8. Froggy 98.1

Commence chorus of “Those were awful clues!”
