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.

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? [:-\]

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. :)

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? [;)]

I guarantee," said the salesman in the pet shop, "that this purple parrot will repeat every word it hears." A customer bought the bird, but found that the parrot wouldn't speak a single word. Nevertheless, what the salesman said was true.
How could this be? [;)]

Because he repeated more then a single word.He repeated every word he had heard, which was more the the single word, it was many words. Is that right?
