Re: Add 13 more and post it forever.

1989 (my Y.O.B.)

ie, 21 years ago.

And the sum of the digits of the 180 degree sideways rotation of that number is also 21 (ie, 6+8+6+1 = 21).

Re: Add 13 more and post it forever.

Oh my gosh, your a year younger than me (I believe) no wonder I love you!

Bobby; you said you were born in 1638. The thread "how old are you, bobbym" proves that you are not 8 years old. That's the year Kyle Reese was born, btw.

I just checked my birth certificate and was dismayed to find that the '8' is actually a badly-written '3'. In fact, the certificate is so old now that the other cyphers are too hard for me to read - even with my bottle-bottom glasses and my magnifiers.

So all these years I've thought I was much younger than I am!

This is all starting to make sense now, because I clearly remember seeing Bobby at the 1904 St. Louis Olympic Games. He was sitting in the grandstand across the other side of the arena from me, cheering away and waving his American flag with one hand and his walking stick with the other. Comparing my memory of him then with his photo that he posted here on MIF, he hasn't aged a bit since then. It's remarkable how Bobby has maintained his youth all these years!

2028...I remember it well.

That person you saw in the stands waving his tiny flag only appears to look like that. In 1683 that person then a middle aged man and serving as the personal bodyguard to the Countess Elaina Von Wurten, 21, a woman of noble breed and great beauty and intelligence. She was also of questionable morality and affiliations. After a brief love affair, she bit that person. He suffered from the viral disease we now laughingly call vampirism. He died in the human sense on June 3 1683.

Re: Add 13 more and post it forever.

Are those dates BC, Bobby? If AD, then that person whose apparition I saw at St. Louis died from vampirism before he was bitten by the Countess after their tragic love affair.

EDIT: Hey! You changed your post from him dying in 1661 to 1683! Or was that date I thought I saw only an aberration?

2054...the product of the outer two digits plus the sum of the inner two = 13.

Hi Tigeree;

I guess you are getting a little lazy as you did not read the previous posts. They might be of interest to you.

What? I was following the numbers. That's what this game is, right? Of course I'm lazy, when'd ya figure that out? But I read the fact that Phro was wrong about his age. Besides I already knew about the vampire Countess.

Come to what? Poor phrontister is frightened out of his mind over seeing that creature in 1904. My explanation has frightened him even more.

Oh, poor phrontister, shame on you bobby! Scaring the weasels out of the poor guy. What creature in 1904? I don't remember reading that. Oh, I don't know what it's come to, I just felt like sounding really sinister.

Post #157 is the pivotal post. When phrontister thaws out and stops shivering I will show him what that thing really looks like.

Tigree and Bobby,

Would you mind editing numbers into the posts so the post #s will still = 13×(post #)?

When you do, the number here will be 2210. For now, it's 2184.

I'll be here at least once every month. XP

Hi quittyqat;

Sorry, my fault, I have edited the previous posts to correct the errors. Thanks for spotting it.

2197 = 9^2 + 46^2
2197 = 26^2 + 39^2

2197 = 13^3
