[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Even something as common as paper can look bizarre to someone who's never seen it before.

    What kind of device puts holes in paper? It must have a needle or sharp point on it.

Hint Two
    This object uses a needle to punch a hole in a sheet of paper.

    Then it's used to draw a solid line around the hole. Since it draws a line, it must have some sort of writing implement attached to it.

Hint Three
    It's safe to say that very few people ever use these once they grow up and join the working world.

    However, because of math class, a startling number of students probably have one in their bag or their desk at home.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Don't give up!

Most people don't use this object often, but almost everyone has used this tool in school at one point or another.

[edit] When Completed

Nice work!

When you think about it, the alien's description of a compass is pretty much spot on. Interesting how widely the perception of a single object can vary, isn't it?

[edit] Solution


The aliens are describing a compass.

[edit] Progress

1555 Picarats and 77 Hint Coins.
