Quandary Resolution 1684
thimblerig, myriad, futurity, zetetic
There were myriad ways of hypothesizing which of the three cups would reveal the pea, but as I could not actually step into futurity, I decided to take a zetetic approach to answering the question and lift the cups myself prior to placing a risky bet -- a move that was not much appreciated by the thimblerig operator who saw himself as the only one with a right to that information in the present.
