    I agree it is a metaphor, and I think we all understand the basic meaning about persistence.
    I just posted it because the translation hadn't yet been listed.

    So that is two invites from LoST, I suppose we can expect one more?

    If anyone cares for a scientific dilettante on their team, feel free to drop me a PM.

    VERY nice try, but I am a DC local. I see that guy all the time. Still I am a bit wigged by the photo with Jaku.

    Ummm. The only question his jacket brings to mind is "Where's my other hand?"...

    Whattaya know, the clothes DO make the man. There's got to be a clever play on the word "query" there somewhere...

    What really scares me is that they apparently had to take a picture off the wall behind him. I don't even want to think of what was in it that would have made things worse...

    I love a man in a bowler hat, but that image gives me the creeps. I don't think the Ken-doll-in-spandex look is really working for the Riddler. O_O

    Still laughing at the phrase "the mysterious chest" - sounds dirty...
