Re: Horse race

The horse puzzle was great! Thumbs up to that. The dot puzzle was given to us in school last year, we had a race to see who could solve it first. Of course it wasn't me hmm I wish I had a faster brain.

Re: Horse race

Faster brain? That may or may not help.

Some noted mathematicians have been rather slow thinkers. It is not the speed, but the quality of thought that counts. Everyone is made differently (Thank God).

Re: Horse race

Heh ok well I wish I was more "intelligent when solving math puzzles." <-I was too lazy to write that out. Faster brain is much shorter tongue

Re: Horse race

i am cool and simon is 2, to get a picture, called an avatar:

Click Profile, up the top of the page under the maths symbols, and then click Personality (which is down the side). Under 'Set your avatar display options' tick 'Use Avatar', and then browse/choose your avatar.

It's that simple!

Re: Horse race

Aha, but.

The image must be smaller than 10k and smaller than 61x61 pixels.

Re: Horse race

Please stop the 1337-speak.
You're too intelligent to degrade yourself like that.

Re: Horse race

The word Dh00m is the only good 1337 out there, and it is a Reaper Ferret of Dh00m. That's what the person I found it off called it.
