But then before scrolling down I said to myself that was in mind because of everybodys posts I read. So I quickly thought of another one and came up with red trowel. When I scrolled down guess what I saw.....red hammer! Man that was soooo close. :-b

A towel isn't a tool. :-b

The guy that made the thread should put in something in the first post saying not to read the thread until you visit the site.


I didnt towel you goof, I said trowel. Which being a bricklayer, is a tool I use everyday at work. :-b ;-D

Here's another mind-game that works the same way:


1) Think of a number between 2 and 10...














2) Multiply that number by 9...














3) Add the two digits of the resulting number together...














4) Subtract 5... This is your new number...














5) If A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, etc... Find the letter that corresponds to your new number....













6) Think of a country whose name starts with that letter...














7) Think of an animal whose name starts with the last letter of the country...













8) Now thing of a color whose name starts with the last letter of the animal....


























You must have screwed something up... There are no orange kangaroos in Denmark...

Good one, Plinds. Of course, ANY two-digit number derived by a multiplier of 9, when added together, equals 9. Therefore the letter will always be "D" and the most common country will be Denmark. Then it's not a huge leap in logic to assume that most people, when asked to name an animal that begins with the letter K, will name kangaroo (although I came up with Koala). Then a color starting with "O" will usually be orange. I came up with Argent, though.

I figured the letter would come out to "D," but couldn't think of a country that started with "D" until I scanned a globe and found "Denmark." Then I couldn't think of an animal that started with "K" and just cheated and settled for "kitten." Then I was totally stumped on a color that started with "N" so again, I took a shortcut and came up with "neon green."

So I came up with a neon green kitten in Denmark. A bit far off from the answer it seems..... :-/
