## #1 Re: Puzzles and Games » "Dropping Balls" Puzzle » 2011-06-05 23:23:37

@MathsIsFun: The puzzle at MathIsFun reads "What is the maximum number of times you have to drop the snooker balls.....". Well, I guess, I can drop the balls a maximum of 100 times starting from 1st floor continuing upto 100th floor?

I don't know if this has been posted earlier or not.

I saw this video too MIRACLE OFF ALL::::::::

We need a real strong force to crack the mystery behind the numbers. All of the human civilization has not yet been able to solve Prime numbers. I think that, even today, a lot of human energy and resources are not being put into just the right purposes.

Edited. Thanks for spotting that out gAr. I've also verified that the links for the solution and the user who solved it are correct.

Yes this is a finite sequence and I'm sure it should not be very hard to imagine it. I'd have loved to give a hint but that would throw it all away in an instant. May be later.

Yeah very spooky indeed, especially when you look at other facts which are circulating over here, of which I'll not go into the details.
Ponting played absolutely fantastic in his last match against India but unfortunately couldn't secure a victory. After winning this World Cup, Tendulkar says he's got his dream fulfilled and that its time for him to retire too.
BTW, there are a couple of players here who need to be 'pushed out' LoL but I'm sure they won't be for everything will be overlooked upon for the while.

## #9 Re: Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity » India Wins Cricket World Cup 2011 » 2011-04-02 06:23:25

The interesting point to be noted here is that India first won the World Cup in 1983 and won it for the second time in this year in 2011. Both these years started with the same day SATURDAY and were not leap years. (Well yeah, there's a simple mathematics which defines this pattern )

Congratulations team India on winning World Cup Cricket this year. India now stands jointly with West Indies at the second position in the number of World Cups won by any team (2 each). Australia still leads with 4 wins registered. Well played Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraaj Singh. Good job M.S. Dhoni.

Numbers, they are so perfectly arranged between themselves that nothing can beat them when it comes to acquaintance. Invulnerable to penetrations and yet so distant from one another. For they know just one prescript . . organization and accuracy. (ok I accept that's two actually )
Modesty may appear complex.
Pride makes the things complicated.
