Can you prove that you have 11 fingers (for this question, thumbs also count as fingers) ? You hide one finger below the others so that only nine are visible and start counting from 10 in reverse (10, 9, 8, 7, 6. At this point, there are 4 fingers visible. So you say, 6 + 4 = 10 and then you show the hidden finger, the eleventh one) Can you decipher the following:2 Y U R 2 Y U B I C U R 2 Y 4 ME (Too wise you are Too wise you be I see you are Too wise for me) 23 P of C in the H B 23 Pairs of Chromosomes in the Human Body 32 is the T in D F at which W F 29 D in F in a L Y 13 S on the U S F A movie actor/director died on this day (25th December).

So I get 1+3+6+10+15+21+28+36+45+55+66+78=364 My System Specs

'What is the connection between these seemingly unrelated words ? hijack, defence, first, unopened, stupid They all have vowels. It's true. Can you explain how 4 - 1 = 5 ? Well, if you put a vertical slash on the subtraction symbol, it works out perfectly. How many gifts are delivered by My True Love in the song The Twelve Days of Christmas ? A number. Can you prove that you have 11 fingers (for this question, thumbs also count as fingers) ? Well, if I count them, they're "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10." and if I add all that together, I get 55. So I have 55 fingers. If I have 55 fingers, that qualifies as 11 fingers (plus 44...). Can you decipher the following:2 Y U R 2 Y U B I C U R 2 Y 4 ME 23 P of C in the H B 32 is the T in D F at which W F 29 D in F in a L Y 13 S on the U S F -cheats and uses answers of other users- A movie actor/director died on this day (25th December).
