I am re-posting one of the Rules as it had been buried on page 1 and some folks missed out because they did not see it.....

 

All answers to all puzzles and questions must be e-mailed to yaahl.raven@gmail.com .

Any answers posted in this thread will be ignored. Any answers e-mailed to me thru my profile will be ignored. Any answers sent to me via P.M. will be ignored. As only one Feather may be won (or gifted) per qualified Forum user, all answers sent by previous winners (and receivers) will, of course, be ignored.

 

Sorry about being a hard a** about this but if I don't "isolate" the replys I will never be able to keep track of which answer cane in first.

 

Now, here is something to keep you all busy while I'm at work for the next eight hours. :D

 

Puzzle # 14 RanDUMB Question 2

 

OK, you guessed that I have 5 siblings (brother & sisters) in RanDUMB Question 1. Now tell me: How many brothers and how many sisters do I have?

 

Puzzle # 15 RanDumb Question 3

 

My parents have 13 grand children. How many Great Grand children do they have?

 

Cheers, CF30

Sorry, Steph, had to walk the dog... ;)

 

Ok, I came across this one. It does not really have a specific answer - you will understand once you do it - but it does have an answer. It's kinda creepy.....

 

Question/Puzzle # 16 Creepy Numbers ( :ph34r: How'd they know.......)

 

Using any regular calculator:

 

1) Key in the first three digits of your phone number (not the area code...) This may only work with US phone numbers - not sure.....

 

2) Multiply by 80

 

3) Add 1

 

4) Mulitply by 250

 

5) Add this to the last four digits of your phone number

 

6) Add to the last four digits of your phone number again

 

7) Subtract 250

 

8) Divide by 2

 

What number do you end up with?

CF30

 

doesn't work for me :)

but uk phone numbers only have 6 digits so that is why

 

another spooky one is choose a 3 figure no (all numbers to be different)

i.e 921

 

reverse it and take the smallest from the greater

 

i.e 921 - 129= 792

 

reverse the product and add to the product

 

i,e, 792 +297 = 1089

 

regardless of which 3 numbers you use 1089 is always the answer!!!!

 

Wierd huh :ph34r:

Sorry, the next one won't be US specific but I thought it was pretty creepy/cool :) I have a Puzzle cache based on the one you posted above! I named it "PrestiDIGITation" :) There is one number combo that will not work with it, tho, but I can't remember what it is.....
