A Difficult Math

12 （21） 26

16 （30） 36

20 （38） 48

24 （54） 60

28 （ ? ） 84

Each numeral series stands on its own.
Ther relationship is among the first/second/third numbers.
The relationship is the same for each numeral series.
But each numeral series does not affect each other.

Uh...slammer,

Wai..Wai was not asking what your IQ was! It was for an in depth, methodilogical, study to pointedly point out the flaws in FIFA's stupid Football rankings.

But I digress....We're (USA) #5 and my target for this year (England) is # 9!!

I'm sure by the time WC '06 kicks off we'll be #1!!

Muahahahahahaha!!!

Go...Redd, Wite, an Bloo!!

Hmmmm..
If all we can get is 42 cans of beans out of that relationship..I have to go back to the quick mart and see if they have anymore left on the shelf for Buckies party.

I was figuring..

Each bowl would make a cardinal stands on its own in a corner.
Their relationship is among the first/second/third toots.
The relationship is the same for each ordinal blasts.
But each cardinal blast would affect each bird.

Ah..verily unto thee Primrisotto,

It's a Cardinal Rule that in order to stretch out the entree yoo gotta add a bit of rice to da beans. As rice comes from patties it makes cents to keep your Water Buffalo working flat out to supply the goods. Patty called yesterday to say the shipment is on schedool! Once the goods cross the Equasion, Davy Jones will put the rice in his locker to prevent any snap, crackle or pop!

Be prepared to leap into action on "Q"

Brilliantly modest in Modesto, 2 + 2 = 5 ed

Ps.....I was awaitin yore ole a...1..an a ...2!!

I have been putting up Buckie party invitations with my hammer on a few poles lately..

Snap and drag this link into your browsers and we will try to improve that numeral series beyond 42. Who is keeping score ?

ht tp://www.mercilessgames.com/puffball/puffball.html

On reflection....We do not have any water buffalo around this week..but Jacob said I could borrow his horse.

An Amish lady is trotting down the road in her horse and buggy when she is pulled over by a cop. "Ma'am, I'm not going to ticket you, but I do have to issue you a warning. You have a broken reflector on your buggy."

"Oh, I'll let my husband, Jacob, know as soon as I get home."

"That's fine. Another thing, ma'am. I don't like the way that one rein loops across the horse's back and around one of his balls. I consider that animal abuse. That's cruelty to animals. Have your husband take care of that right away!"

Later that day, the lady is home telling her husband about her encounter with the cop.

"Well, dear, what exactly did he say?" asked the husband.

"He said the reflector is broken." replied the Amish lady.

"I can fix that in two minutes. What else?" asked the husband.

The wife replied, "I'm not sure, Jacob . . . Something about the emergency brake."

Yeah Chise,

That Primly is sure off the wall!! Butt...that is no excuse for your lame post. I put a call in to Nursie Simone to drop by and check your emergency brake!

Ps...Not to worry Wai Wai....this is all for your own good!! Remember..when you eat beans...do it out of doors...it's safer for all concerned!!

Dang...butt you're good Primus,

If 42 = "Q" then it stands to reason that 21 = "q"! I'm sure you know that "q" is the most important letter in the word quaff which Chise would be wise to remember should he manage to crawl into a Pub. As you are certainly aware there ain't no other way to down a brewski.

Ps...Wai Wai....if you're still w/us I hope you're taking notes. Not only are we clearly helping w/your Math problems....we've given you some great material for your Psychology class!

Ok, enough with all the bs now.

Obviously, you nitwits all need to clean..err..fresh up your classics.
I was referring to Douglas Adams' "Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy"

A brief summary - but DO read the entire book(s)!

[MOVE]DON'T PANIC [/MOVE]
Arthur Dent is the last human in the galaxy after Earth is destroyed thanks to the Vogon Constructor Fleet that clears the planet away to make room for an interstellar highway. However, he escapes destruction by sneaking away on a Vogon ship with his good friend,secretly an alien from Betelgeuse, Ford Prefect. They meet up with the President of the Galaxy,who was stolen the fastest ship in the galaxy. However,when they finally make it to a factory-planet that designs luxury planets,they discover the truth about Earth-it was a giant computer meant to figure out the meaning of life,after the second-greatest computer in the universe could only come up with "42". The book is peppered with great humor and exercepts from the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy (an imaginary book with the words DON'T PANIC on the cover ) it's one of the best humor/scifi books ever.

~~~
With species like Big Ed still running around freely over this planet, we just have to settle for

42,

for now.

Take the Quiz/quiz: overhere.

Topic closed.
(As far as I'm concerned... )

Take the numbers on a traditional 6 faced dice and add them all up

1+2+3+4+5+6 = 21
............ http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e119/andysnaps/fortytwo.jpg

In a desperate need to understand and undaunted by the paradox that states no Universe may contain both the question & the answer........ what some have chosen to glean from the above is that it takes a pair of dice to achieve the required 42 and that the message is simply ......."life is a crap game"

Not that everyone was entirely comfortable with Life, The Universe & The Theory of Everything........

Memo To Planning Dept.

There's this teeny, tiny, hardly worth mentioning, sorta screaming bit of me.... that has a teeny, tiny, hardly worth mentioning sorta screaming suspicion, that you just hoped to place me in a steaming pile of invitations, pitching me fork with gusto - while looking upwards towards the stars....Now i've got a teeny, tiny, hardly worth mentioning sorta screaming suspicion that looking up, while pitching down may be a bad thing and consequently don't add up...........

eyes-open - pointing out you can't enjoy a Ho'down when you've found yourself a toe down.

By Jove, I think he's got it!

Anagram
The eyes : They see
This ear : It hears

Biged Nott was shot and Sam Shott was not.
So it is better to be Shott than Nott.
Some say Nott was not shot.
But Shott says he shot Nott.
Either the shot Shott shot at Nott was not shot, or Nott was shot.
If the shot Shott shot shot Nott, Nott was shot.
But if the shot Shott shot shot Shott, then Shott was shot, not Nott.
However, the shot Shott shot shot not Shott - but Nott.
