    Default A Trivial Puzzle - March 2013

    See if you can find the $ symbol in less than 30 seconds.

    Let us know how long it took you.
    But, don't tell anyone where it is!

    Only took me 20 minutes and a magnifying glass! In my (and my old weary eyes) defence the $ is more an S with very slight lines. I even thought it may be that members using $ currencies could find it quicker as they were more aquainted with the symbol but we're all from the UK here apart from Su so this doesn't hold water.

    Well, Egg.
    No defence is required. It takes as long as it takes.
    It's a bit of fun.

    Steve: You should have no problems finding dollars in Australia!
    Am I right, that there is no symbol for the Australian Dollar?

    It took me forever to find it and I'm still not convinced that I did. For a long time I thought it might be a trick question and the $ was the blue one. Finally I found one that slightly resembled a $ more than did an S with serifs. So in light of this I am forwarding my eye doctor bill to Mr. Whatshisname.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
