I've never seen this before, I find it very interesting though. But I'm more interested in the page source code :)

And already we have someone trying to spill the beans :smk:

TRhalloween
23-08-09, 16:18
No, that was wrong.

Minty Mouth
23-08-09, 16:18
No, that was wrong.

Nope, you did the maths wrong :p

TRhalloween
23-08-09, 16:19
Nope, you did the maths wrong :p

I'll do it again.

TRfan23
23-08-09, 16:22
And already we have someone trying to spill the beans :smk:

Even I don't understand the source code ;) Where's spikejones :whi:

Well it figured out S and B for me...

What's also interesting is it all changes when you press F5 on the page :D

Love2Raid
23-08-09, 16:35
Haha, I think I know how it works! :D

Post will be updated with pics in a few secs....

Edit:

SPOILER

The possibilities may seem endless, but they are actually limited (duh :p)!
See for an example below:

99 -> 81
98 -> 81
91 -> 81
90 -> 81
89 -> 72
88 -> 72
87 -> 72
(and so on)

Now I picked 88, and the outcome was 72. Look which symbol it gave me the first time:
http://i26.************/no8sc1.jpg

Then I locked the site and returned, and see which symbol it gave me the 2nd time!:
http://i31.************/25jd1jq.jpg

And also, see the symbol for 81.

:D

It's always the same, but it changes the symbols so everyone who tries it gets a different symbol.

Great isn't it? :p

Not once has it gotten it for me.

I love doing these! but it didnt work this time

23-08-09, 16:44
Im too FAT to do math right now..school starts in a week ugh! let me have my fun!! :hea:

Love2Raid
23-08-09, 16:45
It should always work, if you do it right. Pick a number with 2 digits and subtract the first and second digit from the number. It can't fail. ;)

TRhalloween
23-08-09, 16:50
It worked for the third time.
Was I doing something wrong? :o

Love2Raid
23-08-09, 17:01
It worked for the third time.
Was I doing something wrong? :o

Yes. :tea:

More proof of my theory:

All numbers in ‘90’, give 81 as an outcome (like the example I posted above)
90 -> 81
80 -> 72
70 -> 63
60 -> 54
50 -> 45
40 -> 36
30 -> 27
20 -> 18
10 -> 9

If its not working, then youre doing it wrong. Trust Me.

I don't think so some how.

Minty Mouth
23-08-09, 17:04
Well done Love2Raid, youre spot on :D

23-08-09, 17:04
It got it right every single time! I feel violated...

Love2Raid
23-08-09, 17:05
Well done Love2Raid, youre spot on :D

Thank you! :hug:

Rai
23-08-09, 17:07
I still don't get how it knows which number you chose. Even with the system you've put up, you're still choosing a random number. :confused: How can it know which number you started with nor the one you ended with after doing the calculations.

Love2Raid
23-08-09, 17:09
Rai:

It doesn't know which number you started with, but it knows which numbers you could end with. There are only 9 possibilities. And those get the same symbol! :)

Spong

Strange...but this really works...

Love2Raid
23-08-09, 17:26
Thank you. :p

No problem! :D :hug:

(btw you've quoted a spoiler :p)

Minty Mouth
23-08-09, 17:30
I updated the first post with another Mind reading Game that Love2Raid sent me.

Guess your Number (http://www.quizyourprofile.com/guessyournumber.swf)

Spong
23-08-09, 17:37
^^That one doesn't work for me either. These maths programs are so hit and miss :rolleyes:

Love2Raid
23-08-09, 17:39
That one can't fail either Spong! :p

Pick one of the numbers out of the list and follow the directions. I thought I let it fail too the first time but that was because I didn't pick a number from the list. :o

WCookie
23-08-09, 17:50
All of them fail with me, maybe i'm different :pi:
