PASCAL RIDDLE - Given to me by my Future Girlfriend !

please help me, i need to crack this code to get to the girl of my dreams..this is no joke. I have spent hours on this.  the clue is ... 

Luxuria Gula Avaritia Acedia Ira Invidia Superbia... 
65 67 83 5567898 9 000 T=0 Pascal, Blaise 


The above is all i have, T=0 has soemthing to do with time , and the seven deadly sins in latin dont really help you with the code unti you have already cracked it .  All i know is the answer is some kind of Time , which obvioulsy relates to Seven deadly sins . Question, how do i convert these randon numbers into time...what does Pascal have to do with i just don't know ?!?

A met a girl online and she has set me a series of treasure hunts in order to get to her!!!!

Re: PASCAL RIDDLE - Given to me by my Future Girlfriend !

the numbers can be dates, ASCII codes, mail accounts or other accounts, phone #, lot's of stuff.

You should have more clues... this relates to what? what did 'she' talked about before this? 'she' obviously likes riddles, what are other things 'she' might mixed up there? Maths, History, any other particular science?

A good start would be some info on Blaise Pascal. His background, historical, personal, scientific...

Re: PASCAL RIDDLE - Given to me by my Future Girlfriend !

This previous conversation might give us ideas to continue with.
http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~wwu/cgi-bi … 1171301447


So we have 2 x 3 x 7 x 43 x 3083 = 5567898 = 42 x 43 x 3083.
The seven sin names came up with this photo on a forum...

Re: PASCAL RIDDLE - Given to me by my Future Girlfriend !

Just for reference, the seven deadly sins are:

Latin: Luxuria Gula Avaritia Acedia Ira Invidia and Superbia
English: Lust, Gluttony, Avarice, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride

And matching Virtues: Chastity, Temperance, Charity, Diligence, Forgiveness, Kindness, Humility

Re: PASCAL RIDDLE - Given to me by my Future Girlfriend !

She doesnt offer a lot of clues except the seven deadly sins relevance will be obvious when the code is cracked . The code relates to a time (specifically, she said time not date !)   .The riddle is not a simple one to solve, and apparently Ineed to apply some formula to the numbers to time . T=0 ( my theory only) could relate to Birthdate of Pascal or the the birth of christ ?

Re: PASCAL RIDDLE - Given to me by my Future Girlfriend !

If 65 67 83 is ascii, it would be ACS. If we relate that to time, the closest I get is the Australian Central Standard time. That would be UTC/GMT + 9:30h. Just throwing something out there... does Australia say anything at all?

Also, I was thinking that 65 67 83 could be rows or something in Pascal's triangle. 65 would be row 6, number 5 in the sequence. But 67 doesn't quite work out.

The one thing that comes to mind is that they represent degrees, minutes and seconds like some sort of location. As with 9 000, I'm clueless.


Bang postponed. Not big enough. Reboot.

It probably doesn't mean anything, but 65 67 83 also represents this colour.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Well, the timezone was +9:30 and T=1hr 33min = 93,0 minutes

Just throwing out observations here.
