    This is a puzzle warming you up for #15... It probably has nothing to do with the puzzle, but its cool nonetheless...

    Finish the sentence... Hint: Tweleve

    Default Answer to #15

    Here is the long awaited answer to Numba 15.

    First, you take the weird looking sentence, and put it in a six by six grid.

    Code:
    IMSIRS
    AIPECN
    NNYSEA
    FGSPBN
    L'EIR.
    ESREO.
    Read top to bottom... you get -> Ian Fleming's Spy Series Pierce Brosnan

    You should have immediately thought of James Bond... If you didn't, well...

    Now, if you remember back to your high school days, this graph is what is called a piecewise function. When graphed out, this function looks like a letter "M"

    Now, you should be putting 1 and 2 together.

    There is only one person in a James Bond movie with Pierce Brosnan that played M.

    That would be Judi Dench, and that was the answer I wanted.

    People who got it before I gave out the buttload of clues...
    molnar

    Yes, just molnar.

    People who got it after I gave out the buttload of clues...
    gabi
    moscow32

    FYI, this week's puzzle will be a tad easier...

    Default Weekly Puzzle #16

    Weekly Puzzle #16

    Take the answer to life, the universe, and everything; subtract the number of letters in the title of the book the answer came from; add the number of seconds in a day; multiply by the number of one's in a deck of cards; and finally, divide the whole thing by the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

    I want the number.
    This one gets no clues, and I ain't answerin' any stupid questions...
    And finally, one guess folks for this one!

    Good Luck my fellow trovers!!

    nishant
    SearchingTudor

    I received about 3 times that in pm's this week! Thank you very much if you participated.

    The answer, because there aren't any 1's in a deck of cards, is zero. I know, that can be argued... but my word is final! :P

    Congrats for catching my trick question!

    The new weekly puzzle should be up by Sunday. All you ├╝ber computer geeks might be able to get this one.

    Seeya!

    Default Weekly Puzzle #18

    I have sent the puzzle via e-mail to the admins.
    The contest begins as soon as the puzzle shows up on this thread.
    The first person to private message me the correct answer will win a DVD copy of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World", an old treasure hunting movie, compliments of destructo!
    After a week, whether or not it has been solved, I will post the answer, and I will also post the name(s) of the grand prize winner, and all the runners-up.
    If no one correctly guesses, the movie goes back in the prize pool.

    Good Luck!
