Neighborhood 3 Normal and Super Meta

By Chris Morse and Dan Katz

Each of the normal answers in this round contains only O and I as vowels, and thus each really represents a binary number.  Each binary number can be converted to the nth letter of the alphabet to spell out the super power.  They actually read down the 4 columns of the neighborhood, POW, ER, OF, TEN.

Super power: POWER OF TEN

(in order)

BIG COTTONWOOD    = 10000 = 16 = P

SPIRIT WRITING    =  1111 = 15 = O

IMMOBILIZING      = 10111 = 23 = W

HIPPOGRIFF        =   101 =  5 = E

MICROSOFT WINDOWS = 10010 = 18 = R

DIMINISHING       =  1111 = 15 = O

SILICON           =   110 =  6 = F

DISTORTION BOX    = 10100 = 20 = T

KICKBOXING        =   101 =  5 = E

IGNITION          =  1110 = 14 = N

Super-Meta:

Each of the super answers in the round clue a different number, and these numbers all

begin with the number 1 to 10 inclusive.  So, since each one is associated with a location

on the map (based on how it is places) so that it makes a one-to-one correspondence with

one of the normal answers.  The final digit is an index to what letter you want in the

answer.

HEINZ       =  57 == BIGCOT(T)   ==     T

MONKEYS      =  12 == S(P)IRIT   == P

PHILLIPS     =  66 == IMMOB(I)   ==      I

TROMBONES    =  76 == HIPPO(G)   ==       G

CATCH        =  22 == M(I)CRO    ==  I

PIANO        =  88 == DIMINIS(H) ==        H

DALMATIANS   = 101 == (S)ILICON  ==          S

PLUTIONIUM   =  94 == DIS(T)ORT  ==         T

MAGNUM       =  44 == KIC(K)     ==    K

ROLLING ROCK =  33 == IG(N)ITION ==   N

Reading these letters in order from 1 to 10 produces the costume piece.
