This game is pretty much just to try to stump people with fun brain games, optical illusions, etc.

I'll start:

Prediction: Your result will be 18

Think of a number.
Add 7 to it.
Subtract 2.
Subtract your original number.
Multiply by 4.
Subtract 2.

I've tried to find a number where it doesn't work... that was two years ago. I am yet to find a number where it does not work.

i used 10, and got -42

message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

I think you've got the calculations wrong.

10+7=17
17-2=15
15-10=5
5x4=20
20-2=18

You end up with 18.

how can you throw a ball as hard as you can and have it come back to you, even if it doesn't bounce off anything? There is nothing attached to it, and no one else catches or throws it back to you.

message 37: by (new)

Throw it up in the air and gravity brings it back to you...no strings attached!
Here's an easy one: is it legal for a man living in South Dakota to be buried in North Dakota?

message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah?

message 47: by (new)

arent they the same?

message 48: by (new)

No, they are two different states.

message 49: by (new)

No because the man is alive and we don't bury living people!

message 50: by (new)

Okay here's one that's been around a while, but my kids love it...A man rides in on Friday, stays three days and leaves on Friday. How does he do it?
