Even if the coding experience isn't there, there may be other ways to get involved. Participating in OSS has the potential to be very gratifying, and can entice more people to consider computer programming by leaping over the barrier of "who cares about a stupid program that prints 'hello world'?"
Nonsense. MOST (non-mathematical) word puzzles are based on challenging assumptions inherent in colloquial English. They are designed to be misleading.
Whenever a puzzle is presented as a simple setup, the puzzler should always consider each word as a clue. With regards to the given puzzle, the puzzler naturally assumes in colloquial English that, if the speaker mentions a set of characteristics applying to a group, the speaker would not intentionally leave out members of the group that have those same characteristics. In my opinion, that's a typical assumption challenged by word puzzles.
