Mensa Puzzle

Not really Philosophical in nature.... but you're all the smartest people on this message board IMO so maybe you could solve this:

Ok so one of my buddies got a mensa puzzle calendar for x-mas ... and
he
gave me this one today and I said to myself "self, why not share it
with others" so here it is:
The great detective has a puzzle to solve. A well-known crime author
had
signed his will at his lawyer's office on Monday, taken it with him and
died in his sleep that night.  He hadn't visited his safe-deposit box,
and
the only clue was a note he left, obviously to remind himself where
he'd
put the will. The note said "Take very secure efforts tomorrow." The
Great
Detective found the document immediately.

Where was it? :grin:

There are two ways to get to the top of an oak tree: start climbing or sit on an acorn.

Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?

Not a genius.  Just sort of popped out at me.  But thank you.

I was gonna say it was still on him because it didnt actually say he put it anywhere at all and he wrote the note to himself because he was blazed and he knew he wouldnt remember in the morning (he's going in the morning because hes too lazy to go tonight) and he died while he was passed out in front of that tv set, with the will still in his pocket. eh? eh comrade?

Apparently you are either attempting to be funny and failing or are unable to distinguish between words with prefixes and words without prefixes. Both my sister and brother in law belong to mensa.

I would have guessed that it was in his pocket. That puzzle is pretty retarded. They guy walks into his house, puts the will in the most obvious place in his whole house apart from the kitchen counter, and then writes a convuluted note to remind himself that its on top of his TV.

????? = bullshit.

Yes, I admit it, my brain freezes up at numbers. If y'all want to get me off a thread, just started talking about numbers. Hell, you don't even have to talk about numbers, just post "1+1=2". That'll take care of me.
