I was an opening bowler. Started as a tail-ender but ended up at no 7. I'm not sure how many half centuries, but not that many. I was not the most subtle of batsmen  :D

So you're a fast-medium swinger? (all jokes on a postcard to the usual address)
I was never a subtle batsman either - my favourite thing was for my opening ball to be hit for 6 back over the bowlers head. Consequently, I was a fast scorer, but often didn't last long. "No grace, no finesse - just readyaimfire!"

9 x 2 = 18; 9 + 2 = 11
5 x 3 = 15; 5 + 3 = 8
4 x 12 = 48; 4 + 12 = 16

I could bowl medium swing (inswing, outswing & reverse) but normally I was a fast bowler and relied on intimidation & brutality rather than tact to get my wicktes. Did a bit of leg spin too in my later years.

1st line: 9  X2  +2
2nd line: 5  X3  +3
3rd line: 12 X4  +4 = 16

I see, i saw it as:
9 (9X2) (9X2)-7
5 (5X3) (5X3)-7
12 (12X4) (12X4)-7

I resigned from MENSA years ago. It's a con. I only joined because mensa is Latin for table and there wasn't a table to be seen & I got hungry  [:(!]

A clock was correct at midnight.

From that moment it began to lose four minutes per hour.

The clock stopped two and a half hours ago showing 16.48.

The clock runs for less than 24 hours.

What is the correct time now?

My clock only goes to 12.

The person obviously owned an odometer, not a clock.
