Find the Fault: Old Desk

This puzzle card shows what you might see on a desk from the 1930s. However, even for an old desk, something just isn’t right. Can you find the fault?

will show submitted answers on Tuesday.

Here is an earlier card you can try

Very few were able to answer Suineg’s math balance problem, so will leave that up a bit longer.

Reminder! Ramble Scramble multi player word game will open this Wednesday night from 7pm-11pm eastern US time.

Tried Civiballs yet? It really is a lot of fun, check it out.

    not 31 days in june lol. I’d also say that though I can’t see it well, it looks as if the chord on the phone is connected to the handle but not the receiver.

    June doesn’t have 31 days.

    Even during the prohibition 365 was the standard and February was not relieved by June.

    there is no June 31.


  6. rajjo | Profile

    The fault is in the calender.
    June month has 30 days and not 31 days as in the calender.

    There is no such thing as the 31st of June, which is displayed on the calendar.

    The month of June doesn’t have 31 days.


  29. BillyPilgrim | Profile

    Where did this person find a calendar with June 31st?


    I’d say the flavor text “even for an old desk” gives this away…


  30. Kllr Wolf | Profile

    I see two errors. One is the date, June only has 30 days. The second is the phone. It appears the handset is plugged directly into the jack instead of being connected to the base.


  31. fuzzy | Profile

    I’m not sure, but it looks like a ballpoint pen there. They were using fountain pens then.


  32. suineg | PUZZLE MASTER | Profile

    the calendar is wrong, June has 30 days jaja cool.


  33. Lucid | Profile

    There’s only 30 days in June…?


  34. auntmei | Profile

    June 31!


  35. alexc | Profile

    June 31 isn’t on the calendar, regardless of year


  36. barftud | Profile

    Unless they work an extra day in that universe, the calendar is incorrect.


  37. joe | Profile

    …30 days has June …



    Although at first the wire coming out of the handpiece of the telephone looked wrong. It seems to be going to the wall outlet instead of back into the base of the phone.


  38. sven254 | Profile

    The are only 30 days in June, not 31.


  39. RK | Founder | Profile

    Very good, June 31st isn’t on the calendar!


  40. MFox | Profile

    Clearly, as I read through the Comments, the desired answer was the thing about June 31. The first thing I noticed, though, since I was focused on the desk itself, is that the perspective was off. Sure enough, when I extended the lines using photoshop, it turns out the the parallel lines of the desk are not in fact parallel. I linked to the photoshopped image here:
