  • OT Mind Game... Puzzel

    Ok this drove my wife nutz for a day. She showed it to me and I figured it out in short order ( about 30-45 sec )... that mad her mad coz I laugh and would not tell her how it worked. Well not right away any ways.

    Thought I'd share this with you all here.

    He says the smarter you are, the longer it takes to solve. I must be real smart.

          Okay...level with us. Your day job is soooo boring that you have time to search the web for puzzles.

          Good puzzle, thanks for posting it!

            I don't have Macromedia Flash player so I cant see what it is, but I think I figured it out anyway in about 22 sec.

              Well, I would've got it on the first try, but I made a stupid arithmatic error. So it took me a few more rolls to nail it down. I know, how hard can it be to count to 8 -sheesh. I read the title of the puzzle and just looked for the representation.

                    The smarter you are the longer to figure it out. Ok I got it the second throw of the dice. 'Bout six seconds. Guess I am not nearly so smart as my momma told me.

                      There you go Evan, see you're so @#$% smart you make the rest of us look bad. Remember, how long it takes you to figure it out is supposed to be inversely proportional to your intelligence. Shucks, it might take you days to figure it out.

                      Evan, I sent you an email. If you don't want to know - don't open the email, just delete it.

                        Took me about 15 mins to work it out....I would give you a hint................But I won't....It is god damn frustrating when you can't figure it out...
                        Precision takes time.

                          Evan...Your stuck in the same logic loop that the wife was.

                          As far as the smarter the longer... well I thnk that's just a way the justify all the time runing numbers to no end.

                          No Mike... Not me... I'm not ZZZZzzzZZZzz. No really I like my job.

                              Great puzzle! But don't suggest anymore

                              Down side: It took me quite awhile to figure it out!

                              Upside: I know every possible combination that can be thrown with 5 dice
                              - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
                              Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

                              It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.
