… but surf de blogland …
This is downright spooky … WTF is the deal??? I tried it like 10 times and it’s been right each time.
And I added this dude to my list of cool links. He definitely has a snarky frame ‘o mind! What with wKen going offline (and I admit that I am bummed because I really dug his blog more than almost any other) because he really seemed to have an interesting life (you know, sort of like how mine isn’t and all?) So, I’m out there looking for some interesting blogs to read (ha! Like I don’t have 90 other things I SHOULD be doing, right?)
BTW, Fridda, you witch (and I say that with love!), I am now automatically into the low 500s on my Cubis scores. Took me a while but dammit, I got there. That game is such a freaking addiction!
Umm, isn’t there something better to do on a saturday night? Didn’t think so.
You logical types take all the damn fun out of things! Can’t you just go “Whoooo, that’s way cool and scary” and leave it at that? hehe
Leave it to my brother Tom to figure it out. The symbols will change from one number try to another. For a given set though the pattern will always work because it’s the first digit of the number times nine. The pattern is always the same but the increment changes.
Let x be the original number.
x = 10a + b where a is the digit in the tens column and b is the digit in the ones column
Let y be the number on the chart
y = (10a + b) – (a+b)
y= 9a, or the first digit of whatever number you pick multiplied by nine contains the symbol of your answer.
That much I’ve figured out but I don’t know the rest of it, yet…
That IS weird. I’ve seen one other thing like that, done with cards, and the only thing I can figure is, it has something to do with the way you move your mouse, or where exactly you click on the screen, or something. It’s also possible that it suggests numbers to you by showing them too fast for your brain to register consciously. That seems to make a little more sense, as I moved my mouse down to the bottom of the screen and didn’t do anything with it while I was computing. It doesn’t work if you just pick a number and concentrate on the symbol [you pick one and it shows you a different one]; it only works if you actually follow the instructions. I wonder how well it would work if you picked the numbers from another room and told your result to someone else sitting at the computer and they clicked on the crystal ball thingie.
Oh, and whenever you feel an urge to play Cubis, Beez, bite down on your bad tooth. That’ll cure your addiction. :D I’m having a terrible time with a Gems 3D addiction, so I sorta feel your pain. It would probably help if I took the shortcut off my Desktop…naaahhh.
peace, peanut butter and protective pentagrams,
