# Thread: A fun little riddle

1. I thought I'd post this, I'll give \$3TD to the first person to answer all three correctly. No, it's not a lot, but it's a little insentive

1) how many letters are in the alphabet?
2) Finish the following sequence:
1
11
21
1211
111221
312211
13112221...
3)If you are in a race and pass the person in 2nd place, what place are you in?

Rules: Sure, you could use ways of disobeying the rules, but that wouldn't be fun You must get all three correct, in one post. You are allowed one post per 4 hours. The post doesn't have to be 4 hours from then, but subsequent posts will be counted as if they are 4 hours apart.

Good luck And yes, I know some are easy.

2.

3. - well, 26 in the alphabet or 11 if you mean in "the alphabet"
- 1113213211
- 2nd

4. ors don't count man, sorry

5. Well, you have to state what you want....

Does that mean that I have to wait 4 hours to say one or the other?

6. Your question could have been interpreted in two ways; either as a straight question or a trick question.

Therefore I claim the prize (!!)

After all, it was (b) that was meant to be the "killer"

*sulking*

7. And there are, actually, 26 letters in the alphabet

And the second question *is* 1113213211

And if you want to get into first, you really need to catch the first man, not the second -- otherwise you will be in second, period.

8. It sucks... I know. But that's half the riddle. Choose which of a) you want to be your first answer and I might give it to you (if it's right)

9. I guess my choice is as above in the post just before your "It sucks" one....

As "the alphabet" is not in quotes, it has to be 26
...and 1113213211
...and 2nd

I'm off to work -- clearly too much time on my hands, and clearly far too competitive for my own good.

10. OK,

11 Letters in 'the alphabet'
1113213211 - Descriptive of the line above
2nd place 'cos the guy up front has not been passed yet

11. Sadly, it goes to mossoi (sorry sean, if it makes you feel better you did have it all right.. just a matter of judgement, as all life is) But damn you people for being so smart (or googlin' :d)
