I'm still confused... how do the first two work at all? "Any" isn't really an indefinite number, is it? "Any number," might be, but any by itself!?

And, "half an em?" I was thinking simply "n." How is half an "em" "en..."

Omega, in typography, an em is a long dash--an en is the shorter version, that is, half of an em

Why is it when people can't understand or figure out the answer they always blame the wording or translation of a word. I found the teaser quite refreshing and though I missed one, I found the answer to my liking and understood it. Thanks for printing a wonderful teaser.

aaaaaahhhhhhh! i'm not to good at this stuff, i got half the width of an em, but i wanted to add "n" to the begining of actual secretory organs, npancrease or nadrenal aren't countries!!!!!! and an indefinite number is a variable! sigh.

This Teaser is being added to my Favorites. Sam, you out done yourself. This teaser was smooth, intelligent, yet not over bearing. Love it. Keep up the good work. By the way, I didn't get one. I forgot you said Countries. My bad..
