Ask a friend to think of a number.

Ask him to add the next higher number.

Then ask him to add 13 and divide the result by two.

Then he has to subtract the original number from the total answer.

When he finishes,

The answer will be always seven.

FOUR MORE LITTLE RIDDLES

1. A Truly Remarkable Number

Enter 999999 into your calculator, then divide it by seven.
The result will be a mysterious number!
Throw a die (or randomly pick a number from 1 to 6) and
multiply the result by the mysterious number. Arrange the digits
of the product from lowest to highest from left to right to form
a six-digit number.

What is the number?

2. Number Names

Think of any number from 1 through 100. Write down its
name.
Count the number of letters in its name to obtain a second
number. Count the number of letters in the second number to
obtain a third number.
Continue in this way until the chain of numbers ends on a
number that keeps repeating.

3. The Magic of 8

Multiply your phone number -- treating it as a seven-digit
number (without its area code) -- by 8. Then write down the
following three numbers:
(i) your phone number,
(ii) 8, and
(iii) the product of your phone number and 8.
Add up all the individual digits in those three numbers. If
the sum is more than one digit, take that sum and add up its
digits. Continue adding up digits until only one digit is left.

4. Secret Word

When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for
one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected
them with another, and to assume, among the Powers of the Earth,
the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of
Nature's God entitle them, a descent Respect to the Opinions of
Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel
them to the Separation.

Printed above is the first paragraph of the U.S. Declaration
of Independence. Select any one of the first 20 words. Count
the letters and call that number n. Move ahead n words,
beginning with the word after your selected word. When you reach
that nth word, count its letters and move ahead as many words as
the new letter count. Continue in this manner, counting letters
and moving ahead words, until you stop on a word that's beyond
the fourth line.

On what word did you stop?

Subject: The Number 11

11 has come to be a very interesting number. It could be a
forced coincidence, but in any case this is interesting. You decide
for yourself

1. New York City has 11 letters.

2. Afghanistan has 11 letters.

3. Ramsin Yuseb (the terrorist who threatened the Twin Towers
in 1993) has 11 letters.

4. George W. Bush has 11 letters.

This could be a mere coincidence (could it be?) now here is what is interesting

1. New York is State No. 11.

2. The first plane which crashed into the Twin Towers was flight no. 11.

3. Flight no. 11 was carrying 92 passengers, adding this number
gives 9+2=11.

4. Flight no. 77 which also hit the towers was carrying 65 passengers,
adding this 6+5=11.

5. The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11, adding this
9+1+1=11.

6. The date is equal to the emergency number 911, adding this
9+1+1=11.

Now we have a very upsetting piece.

1 The total number of passengers inside the planes are 254:
2+5+4=11.

2. The day September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year:
2+5+4=11.

3. After September 11 there are 111 days more to the end of the year

4. The tragedy of 3/11/2004 in Madrid also adds to:
3+1+1+2+4=11.

5. The tragedy in Madrid happened 911 days after the tragedy of
the Twin Towers.

SPOOKY . READ ON.

America is typically represented by an Eagle.

The following verse is from the Quran (the Islamic Bible)

Quran (9:11) for it is written that a son of Arabia would
awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt
throughout the lands of Allah, while some of the people trembled in despair
still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah; and
there was peace. NOTE THE VERSE NUMBER!!!

FINALLY

1. Open up a blank Word document.

2. Type Q33 NY in capitals (this is the flight number of the first
plane to hit the World Trader Center gate Q33 @ NY (New York)

3. Highlight Q33 NY
