This is the first (they might get a bit harder after the easy start) of the "yes/no/not relevant" kind of lateral puzzle I am publishing. More will follow. Please remember, I don't want you to ruin the puzzle for anyone in the comments section so if you want to solve this, send me an e-mail or ping over Twitter so we can sort out the details. Thanks!
