Easy one. Can you guess the two words formed from the letters in "Mike Ross"?

Yep, that's what I got.
These are fun. Thanks, Teresa.

This was the first easy one I came across. (I don't care what other descriptions have said, this is the first.) My brain is not wired in a way that allows anagrams to pop out at me. I have a feeling, Teresa, that it is a natural talent for you.
I'm always fascinated by how different minds can both think alike and completely differently. Do you think this may have to do with personality types? I highly suspect it does. Perhaps your order of cognitive functions (NiFeTiSe for INFJs) causes it to come easy to you. My functions are FiSeNiTe (ISFP). We share two in the same, but the Introverted Intuition (Ni) is your first and my third. It's possible that has something to do with it.

This is a comment regarding different minds and a terribly absurd decision by our US Supreme Court years ago. The issue was whether jury verdicts had to be unanimous (it was a criminal trial involving the mob, and 3 or 4 consecutive hung juries, most 11-1 for conviction, maybe one 10-2. The NY DA's office was getting sick and tired of the whole case and the millions spent. A hung jury results in a mistrial, so the only options left for the prosecutor are dismiss the charges or re-try it. There were I believe 4 consecutive trials, same defendants, same evidence.) So they tried to say that basically 44-4 votes for conviction ought to be good enough. The question granted certification to the high court was "Given the same [evidence], can reasonable minds reach different conclusions?"
It would be logical,yes?, if the decision (of the 9 justices) would be 5-4 yes they can (reach different conclusions), or 9-0 no they can't.
So you can guess how this ends. Yes, nine of the smartest guys in any room ruled 5-4 "no they can't."
Although such a ruling should have immediately collapsed by its absurd conclusion, it stood.
Thanks for listening!

James, congratulations on getting it first.

CB, I'm glad you are enjoying these.

Aurelian, I agree with the conclusions you have drawn. My birth son has a mind that works exactly like mine (we are best friends). I have two adopted kids whose minds work totally differently from ours. I am one of those people who love word scramble games, and used to love playing Scrabble. Playing those kinds of games makes stronger connections in the brain for anagrams. Plus, you know, I am using an online anagram solver to look through the list of possibilities to choose the best one for a puzzle. And the image and anagram are only obvious to me because I created them. :-D

Bill, I can't wait to share this tidbit with my son (the one who thinks like me). Thanks for sharing this.

This one came up randomly while I was looking for small/medium puzzles. It's really cool this series has gone on for, well, almost two months, maybe longer. Maybe I should just do a search to find them all. I like having the extra puzzle and sometimes being able to figure the image parts, sometimes not. It provides variety.

Hi, Andrew. I'm glad you found this series. Because now I'm going to make an anagram puzzle just for you! Stay tuned.
