    I revealed the meta answer and still have no idea what the mechanism is. I'd love a nudge!

      Are you familiar with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? And its sequels?
      • benchen71 🤓6:05 · 27 days ago
        Why yes, yes I am. I will take another look with that in mind...

      One note: While the CharlieCard in 32D
      32D MTASubway system where riders can pay with a CharlieCard
      was named after "Charlie on the MTA
      32D MTASubway system where riders can pay with a CharlieCard
      ", these days it's known as the MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority).

        Impressive grid with the 4 16s! So the secret to the universe is Radishes?

          Yay! Yes, I had to use your spoiler, then google. But still fun! Thanks, Emma!
