I got 28.
I agree with Stupot that there are several possibilities for several of the questions.
You can claim that there's only one possible answer but that shows a distinct lack of imagination. If anything coming up with an alternative to the 'accepted' answer shows intelligence.
I do think you have something with the 'noise' idea. This is all about finding patterns in noise. However, I think that ignoring noise is not correct. Rather it's coming up with a pattern that minimizes or eliminates the perceived noise. So any reasonable pattern that eliminates the noise could be considered correct. It's ignorant to assume that there's only one correct answer. There may even be several equally simple patterns - whatever your metric of simplicity is (eg levels of abstraction).

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
On the sequences:
1, 0, -1, 0, ...
I feel pretty deeply that 1 is the correct answer. But why? None of the other sequence questions are cycles. cos(n*pi/2) is a deep abstraction.

Err... it's Summer Glau and some dude I don't recognize. So, The 4400?

The house is the Cook Mansion, in Piru, California.
It's appeared in lots of films and TV shows...

General Discussion / Re: The Library Of Babel

Now, you could think that the room name is just a coded version of my story, being actually longer than the story is.

But that's not how the library works.
Are you sure?
To store all combinations up to 55 characters would take about 1.3 x 10^85 bytes, more than there are atoms in the universe.
To store all combinations up to 3200 characters, 1.5 x 10^4683. This number is just stupidly large.

It's what I like to affectionately call, low-budget Canadian sci-fi.
I love a lot of the recent Canadian sci-fi shows - Haven, Continuum, Orphan Black, Dark Matter, The Expanse, Killjoys, Van Helsing, Wynonna Earp. My wife even enjoys half of them...

It's fine, I knew it was Die Hard Trilogy... I interviewed at Probe in London when it was in development. :=

Not Pirates, no. It's part of the gameplay.

I don't know who or what I'm looking at...
Maybe set in the 20s in colonial Africa?
But what's with the guy on the right who appears to have stepped out of a Yorkshire pub?
Also, what is that weird twisted wood thing in the background on the left?
So many questions...

You should watch The Good Fight immediately. We subscribed to CBS for Star Trek Discovery, and quickly abandoned it to binge Strange Angel and then The Good Fight. Then we started watching The Good Wife, which is good, but not as good as The Good Fight.
