Hi;

I got it wrong too the first couple of times. It seems to be a hard one to program.

Hi;

That is a lot of firepower to bring to bear upon that poor little exploding frog.

Agnishom was the first to get it right. gAr was the second and the first person to see the connection between the frog and Josephus. The third solution was given by ShivamS.

So, will you please post the video of an exploding frog?

Hi,

I think I've got it now:

All it needed was to change a single "1" to a single "0". I used a simulation in an Excel spreadsheet and this oversight is just one of several things I wasn't alert enough to from the very beginning.

The spreadsheet solution only comprised many tens of thousands of cells, btw, and so the problem wasn't too difficult to spot.

Hi phrontister;

Hi Agnishom;

Nope, the rocket is real. It is the frog that is no longer real.

You do not agree with Biologist 1?

I still like the delicious option better.

I hate biologist 3's idea though.
