Scavenger Hunts Build Self-Esteem

The Descriptions and Answers to the Washington Post Hunt Puzzle


The Washington Scavenger HuntThe moderator starts with a small oration. He says we’ve a huge issue for which we need a remedy, and to do that, we must begin from the origin and go from there. He then introduces the two debaters and says, “Let’s take our directions from them.” He says they’ll now take questions in the appropriate sequence.

The crowd asks them questions and then one or two of them answers. One will always reply with some variation of extreme conservatism, as well as the other will always reply with extreme lefty rhetoric.

On the map is a tree, where you should start as well as where the roots of the tree are. There is a jazz saxophonist on the map with notes. So you visit the origin and face the saxophonist (the music). Then you move forward, turning left or right depending on the sequence in which questions are being answered by the two extreme pols.

Starting from the root you had carry on toward the music, you make the subsequent turns: left, right, left, right, left, taking you to 11th Street, just below F. (Note that you do not have to walk, you can only do this on the map). At the destination, you’ll notice a truck parked using a huge advertisement for the IODINE in 13% SOLUTION of LEFTY. We SAID you’d arrive at the answer. The solution to this puzzle is 13.


In McPherson Square, there will be a giant nose (about 8-feet high in the point) sticking out of the earth, as if a man were underground and buried up to the bridge of the nose.

Clues lead to new placesAlso at this spot, there will be volunteers passing out catches, with an insight demonstrating where to append the catch (in the midsection, over the stomach area). The catches will say “Discover ME.” Hunters need to look in the guide and comprehend that delineated on the guide are goliath feet, staying up from the earth the same as the nose (and moreover the same shading). The feet are gravitated toward eleventh St. NW. Seekers need to decide the feet and nose that speak to the body parts of precisely the same and in instructing them to “discover” the “midsection catch,” we intend to go halfway between the nose and feet (Franklin Square). Should they go there, they’re going to see a sign that peruses:

Select the correct verbs, and then add up the word values of the SCRABBLE:

Gamble, perambulate, laugh (9), tumble, rub (5), finagle, pain (9), dancing (8), excursion, flop (9), purchase, steam
The “appropriate verbs” are the ones usually used with gut, to wit: laugh (Scrabble word score of 9), wipe (Scrabble word score of 5), pain (Scrabble word score of 9), dancing (Scrabble word score of 8) and flop (Scrabble word score of 9). Add up the scores to get the option: 40.


In advancement on the stage is a spelling honey bee. The contenders need to spell the right letters. The right letters will spell fifty two. 52 isn’t a potential arrangement.

On the guide, there are twelve vehicles of different types — trains, race autos, subs, planes, and so on — all with numbers and letters on them. One of these is a B52 — the aircraft fly that is notorious. This truly is the thing that the spelling honey bee is letting you know: BEE 52. The sum on the fuselage of the plane says X5. 52X5 equivalents 260 and that is the answer.


Hunters were given a link to Bubbli picture, a 360 degree picture of F Street where it intersects with 9th Road. Hunters have to check for the most significant difference. The most important difference is the fact that in the Bubble, the Pi symbol in the signal over the Pi Pizzeria was transformed into a large check mark. This really is what we meant when we said “check” for a difference. The difference is the Pi symbol, which equals 3.1416. The option on the clue page is clue #31416.

EasyCalm: The Original Anxiety Relief Video Series

The EasyCalm anxiety video series has become something of a phenomenon online. The series spread primarily by word of mouth among anxiety sufferers, and now has over 30,000 users worldwide. The popularity of EasyCalm also thrust Jon into the public eye in a way he never expected:

“At first I felt vulnerable and exposed talking about such personal issues to a worldwide audience.  With time this became less of a problem as I recognized that the anxiety I had dealt with so many years was extremely common — thousands of people from all over the world began e-mailing and telling me how similar their situation was to mine.”  – Jon Mercer

EasyCalm users often feel a personal connection with Jon,  something apparent in a recent testimonial by an EasyCalm user in Boston, MA:

Hi Jon, I can never thank you enough for changing my life. EasyCalm works better than anything else I have tried over the 19 years that I have suffered with anxiety and panic, debilitating at times. After my first panic attack in 1990, I was prescribed Klonopin which I took daily for about four months until seeking help from a psychologist who specialized in panic and anxiety disorders. That was four months of lethargy and 40 extra pounds added to my body. Over the years I would still get symptoms, a few years ago while sitting in my living room having dinner and watching TV, I started having what turned into a full blown panic attack. Why? Once I fully settled down I went to the computer and googled panic attacks and anxiety hopeful that I could find a solution that would work my mind the right way without drugs. I found EasyCalm and decided to give it a try. All I can say is that within days my symptoms disappeared! The Recharger mp3 is on my ipod whenever I have to travel by aircraft. I have passed the word of EasyCalm to everyone I know who suffers from panic and anxiety. Several have used it with the great success that I’ve had with it.  Jon, you deserve an honorary PHD for what you do/ have done for so many. A life without symptoms is a life much better lived…I’m living proof of this! Thank you again Jon so much.
