Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

****What's Missing? Puzzle with prize, Free Titanium****

If you already have won a Titanium Contest, you are not elegible, nor are staffers.

The Puzzle:
Catastrophe
Draw a circle with radius 5 cm.

Draw a second circle with radius 3 cm just touching the most North-East part of the first circle.

Draw two small triangles, 4 cm apart, resting on top of the second circle.

Inside the second circle, arranged so that they are symmetrical about a vertical line through the centre, draw these four things:
a small triangle at the centre
two small circles 3 cm apart, above the triangle
the bottom half of a circle, below the triangle.

WHAT'S MISSING?

There are at least three possible answers, so there will be 3 Titanium Memberships passed out. The contest will run for 3 days or until the three answers are given. The three answers are recorded in the moderators forum, and it will be a catastrophe if no one gets it! Follow the directions above. It's simple, so don't overthink it.

Rats, they beat me to it. I was going to go with legs, whiskers and a tail.

Almost lost it after I realized what it was I had been so carefully drawing

That effort is prize worthy.

And the winners are jdon, Roadtire and awfulwaffle. jdon, go into Paypal CP and cancel your Titanium Subscription, there's a how to thread in the user assistance forum at Recurring Titanium Charges: Information for Titanium Members. You will keep your Ti Status, still, but it won't try to auto-renew itself in 22 days, that's when your paid subscription expires and that way, I won't have to process you for a refund. I gave you a Sheldon Brown Ti, anyway,m since you are already Ti, so you too got an upgrade, with the Igor.
