Research Results

Just to be sure, we went ahead and assembled this 1000-piece puzzle under our normal puzzle-doing conditions: Begin after dinner, enjoy it for a while, become tired, consider finishing it in the morning, stick it out and finish late at night.

Thus did we confirm that our normal time for a standard 1000 is, in fact, 7.5 Tucker hours (3h 45m working together).

And now we're done.

I don't remember you telling us in a previous blog but what exactly is a "Tucker hour"?

Rather than a unit of time, it's a unit of work: one hour spent by one Tucker.

If we are both working on the puzzle at the same time, one hour on the clock is two Tucker hours of work.

If we kept track of time only, in the end we wouldn't know how much work had been put into it because we worked together a lot of the time, but Lisa was also on her own a lot when I had to go take care of other things.

Could we be any geekier?
