Is there any progression to this or is it just a grid pattern?

Re: Tricky puzzles

Correct mathsy!
I'm not sure what you mean by grid pattern, but each number is based on the previous one. Think literally.

F
F
S
S
What are the next three letters?

Re: Tricky puzzles

I am greater than god and more evil than the devil,
The richest man wants me but the poorest man has me,
And if you eat me, you will die.

What am I?

tongue Sorry I must have missed it

I never was, and I'm always to be,
Nobody ever saw me, or ever will,
However, I am the confidence of all
Who live and breathe on this earth.

What am I?
