Riddle Me This

OK since you all enjoyed my last mathematical dilemma so much, I decided I'd share another "thinker" with you. Don't worry there are no computations involved. It may however, require some good old fashioned head scratching.

Below a list of 36 questions with the first one answered as an example. On Thursday 11/15, I'll give you the answers in a similar post as this one. That should be enough time to ponder these and either prove what a smarty pants you are, or to become totally frustrated by the whole thing.

Some sadistic person shared part of this list with me years ago (thanks mom) and I've added a few of my own since.


QUESTION . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .ANSWER

a) 26 = L of the A . . . . . . . . . . Letters of the Alphabet
b) 7 = W of the A W
c) 1001 = A N
d) 12 = S of the Z
e) 54 = C in a D (with the J)
f) 88 = P K
g) 13 = S on the A F
h) 32 = D F at which W F
i) 18 = H on a G C
j) 90 = D in a R A
k) 200 = D for P G in M
l) 3 = B M (S H T R)
m) 4 = Q in a G
n) 24 = H in a D
o) 1 = W on a U
p) 57 = H V
q) 11 = P on a F T
r) 1000 = W that a P is W
s) 29 = D in F in a L Y
t) 40 = D and N of the G F
u) 9 = J on the S C
v) 9 = P in our S S
w) 8 = S on a S S
x) 5+4 = D in a Z C
y) 64 = S on a C
z) 5 = T on a F
aa) 21 = P in B J
bb) 3 = S in an O
cc) 6 = P on a P T
dd) 100 = Y on a F F
ee) 12 = D of C
ff) 5 = S on a B
gg) 4 = S(W S S F)
hh) 2000 = P in a T
ii) 2 = S to E S
jj) 1 = if B L T if B S

Hi Jeff, I have seen your comments on my blog but could not respond from the ship. Thanks for the visits and nice comments, as I catch up I will read back through your blog.

Right then.....

Off to make up answers!

(you didn't really think I'd play by 'rules' didya? LOL)

Travis said...

Geeez. On the first read through I got one.

Jeff B said...

Sarge Charlie- Thanks for the visit.

Mel- Rules...we don't no stinkin' rules.

Travis- When I first did this several seemed to come quickly, but it was the last three or four that drove me crazy.

Have fun all.

Matt-Man said...

I love these things. I'll try to answer them all...Cheers!!

Charles Gramlich said...

I got one too. that was the one you gave us.

Jeff B said...

Matt-Man- Always nice to have an enthusiastic player on board.

Charles G- Don't stop now, you're on a roll.

Mel said...

.....k......with a bit of help from himself (which wasn't much help..LOL) we're down to four.

Nevermind that they're makin' me nutz....LOL
Yep. Thinkin' I'll make at least four up. (there's a couple of 'em that I'm thinking might be up for grabs--and NO I do NOT obsess!)

katherine. said...

okay (Jeff = PITA) what are we suppose to em to the answers ... what?

laughing laughing laughing...

Jeff B said...

Mel- sounds like the competition is heating pressure though, at least not from me. Ha

Katherine- Thanks, I think I'll ask people to email me their lists. I just put my email in my profile.

Jeff=PITA...I think I know this one. Bwahahaha

Mel said...

She meant that with the utmost love and affection, I'm certain.....
