    It took me about 30-40 minutes. I don't like that. It was hard for me to figure out. I stared at it over and over, then got the answers right sometimes, AH. Not cool

    With everything that is posted here, figured it out the second I saw the dice and the name.

    I was dumbfounded when my second guess was wrong. Turned out that 2+4+4 add up to 9 in my brain... yeah... funny lol.

    Maybe I'm playing to many roleplaying games for riddles of that kind *g*

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I thought it was quite obvious, but perhaps I got into the right way of thinking through the 'visual'-hint.

    i have read absolutely every 'hint' on this thread and i have absolutely NO clue how to go about this and I am going to go crazy fairly soon

    I guess I am a, erm, a "genius"

    EDIT:
    Oh man I just got it. Whew.

    It took me a minute or two to get it until I looked at the title again.

    Yeah, I only got it after you guys said that the name had something to do with it. I was wondering why I was getting so many zeros and even numbers.

    I figured it out...at least the last 20 or so that I tried with my "method" works...but I don't get how the name has anything to do with it... maybe a pm from on of the "enlightened ones" ?

    you can formulate a kind of algorithm for it, and it is quite simple
    if a contradiction was contradicted would that contradition contradict the origional crontradiction?

    If you have an algorithm, you're thinking WAAAAAY too hard. Especially if it doesn't always work.

    EDIT: and dissata, if you really want a PM on it.....

    Seriously, just how is the name related to the problem? I'm one of the least visual people you'll ever meet, so this could take years for me to figure out!
