Look carefully the picture and guess the game name.
I live where light is but die if light touches me. What am I?
You have three stoves: a gas stove, a wood stove, and a coal stove, but only one match. Which should you light first?

Palomar telescope

In 1936, a glass casting for the first 200-inch diameter, reflecting telescope mirror was shipped by train from Corning, New York to California for the new Hale telescope at the Mt. Palomar Observatory. It was cast on 2 Dec 1934, put in an annealing oven, then slowly allowed to cool for a year. The mirror weighed 20 tons, and was made of Pyrex glass, which does not expand and contract as much during temperature changes as ordinary glass. The train took about two weeks to reach Pasadena, travelling at a speed always under 25 m.p.h. to keep the mirror, in its specially made crate, safe from shocks. Upon arrival, the crate was taken to the optical workshop at the California Institute of Technology to begin a four-year grinding process to shape and polish the mirror. Work was delayed by WW II, and the Hale telescope in its new observatory building was dedicated on 3 Jun 1948.«Image: With the same size and weight as the 200 inch mirror, this cement disk was used while the telescope was built to test the mount.

New Secretary

The real estate boss got a hot new secretary. Afraid of sexual harrassment issues he held himself off for a week, but finally overcome with lust, he decided to put some moves on her. But within a few weeks, he is feeling displeased at the way she is working, not caring, coming to work late, and so on. So, he pulls her aside, and has a little talk with her. "Listen, baby, we may have gone to bed together a few times, but who said you could start coming in late and slacking off?" Looking him in the eyes, she replied, "My lawyer!"
