Smithsonian puzzle thing

Today the last piece of the puzzle drops (which only grants access to the ultimate puzzle). Dr. Pookie has correctly divined that I have gotten perhaps too obsessed with this thing. She also notes that, if I want to take a trip to the Smithsonian, there are easier ways to do that.

And I'm one of the 17. As long as shad_0 isn't playing, I have pretty good odds, I think. So this may call for taking the afternoon off from work...
