Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

Somewhere on the network here (IO9 front page) I found a link the Euclid The Game, and I am dead stuck on problem 16 (Given a line, a line segment CD, and a point O. Construct a circle with center O that cuts off a segment congruent to CD on the given line.).

I've never claimed to be good at geometry—my maths peak was in high school. I made the mistake of sharing the link with a Maths PhD, and she's barrelling through it (I don't think she hiccoughed until problem 19), but I started stumbling at 11.

And now I just want to cry, remembering all the things I was good at in high school (some even in university) which I've replaced with "life" fucking "experience". I wanna construct that circle, mang. Real bad.
