As I said before, you ask such tough questions, and sometimes I get a headache.

Sorry DD I did not see this part of your post: great minds think alike  :).

OK guys!!!



While walking down the street I met a man. He tipped his hat and drew his cane and in this riddle I told his name. What is the mans name? ;)


His name is Aman...........But ofcourse, someone has already mentioned that as a possibility.

Hi there,

This one had me confused - I converted them to numbers, tries to set them to patterns etc - I'm not certain, but is the answer N T?

when you talk about devil it would be satan.
but what is the question ?
"Devilish" just means difficult or tricky - DiscoverDave seems to have provided a tricky one for us...

Your logic doesn't match omid's one but your answer is right
So Well Done!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D

Here's two sequences of letters. Solve either or both. 
There's only one remaining letter in each sequence. 
These are original¹.  Remember, you asked for tough.
B D F H ?
H K Q R ?

It is a tough one indeed ???
Can omid make a guess? or is it just a challenge for Theoratical physicist? :-\

B D F H ?

I see a spatial pattern in this one where the next letter should be [j]... i'm still working on the second.. if its right that is.

Ah, very cleaver... the next is numerically-linear so the whole two are J and S - i think... lol

I think you're right about the J, but wouldn't the next letter be Y? But I can also see S as the next too. Just depends upon whether one goes back to the addition of two letter sequence or, adds 3 more to the following group as was done witin the second grouping.

Mmmm... The way i saw it was a complicated dual - one which works well spatially and the other which remained soley numerical... The increasing of the numerical values of the second example led initially to S - but perhaps it is a red herring?

We will need to see from David. :)

Bing! [:0]   Bing! [:0]   Bing! [:0]   Bing! [:0]   Bing! [:0]   Bing! [:0]   

Omid wins a cigar.  BDFHT (or, I should say, bdfht) are all letters with parts above the mean line that follow letters that don't have any parts above the mean line.  See? → abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzab, cd, ef, gh, st

(Didn't someone said they wanted a devilish puzzle to solve!!  ;D)

The one who was asking for devilish one didn't even turn back   lol :D


Well omid so proud of herself ;D
Now its your turn to do to the WORST job hahahahahahahhahhahhaha :D
Omid don't smoke BTW,

Forward and forward I go, never looking back. My limit no one knows, more of me do they lack. Like a river I do flow, and an eagle I fly.
Now can you guess, what am I? ;)
