Hello MicPick
 
hi o/
 
Have I told you I detest advertisement?
So I'm gonna be a hypocrite
 
in general?
 
SOMEONE FINISH MY EFFING PUZZLE SO I DON'T WASTE 200 REP
@micsthepick I was joking
I don't like YouTube ads
Esoecially those horror movie trailers
 
Do you tolerate them, or have you installed a blocker?
 
12:09 AM
Hmm whats a blocker
 
I have a plugin called Ad Block Plus
 
Huh
Never heard of it
 
it blocks nearly all website ads, including youtube ads!
 
I can tolerate ads
But I can't stand spammers
@micsthepick Wow nice
 
yeah, we need Spam Block ++
good thing we have Charcoal & Smokey
 
12:10 AM
Speaking of which I should stalk the user page
Brb
 
so anyways, I found (well, someone else pointed out) an interesting property with 68 & 68^2. A short bit later, we found out that it worked with 97 (& 97^2). I made a short Python program, and found out that the property actually works with 15, 32, 65, 68, 97, 98, 99, each with their respective square.
 
Looks like Moth already caight them all
@micsthepick I have no idea what you mean by that
 
okay
 
What's special about 68^2
 
so, if you take the first digit of 68...
multiply it by the next integer:
6*7=42
and take the square of 8
8*8 = 64
you can interleave the two two digit numbers
 
12:13 AM
And reverse it
Or yeah
 
4 6 2 4
 
Wow

Isn't that interesting
 
Fascinating
Totally added a year to my life
Very useful information
@micsthepick Did you know mbaqangas, cwm, crwth, xylxyl, and zyzzyva are all scrabble legal words
 
yikes, would not like to have those played against me
especially if they were high scoring :X
at least zyzzyva has a vowel...
 
12:21 AM
Well zyzzyva is actually really impractical
There's only one z in the entire game, so you would need two blanks
 
true
 
amd xylxyl is even less practical, there is only 1 x, so the raw points only end up being 22 points
 
What are the chances though
 
waffles
 
12:23 AM
One X
So you need a blank
 
22 is actually not bad
Until you see quiz
Now cwm is really neat because c=3 (points) , w=4, m=3, and they are all semi-frequent
 
and crwth could be a game saver
 
Definitely
Though personally aa is much more useful
Or za

Hello Ascii
 
hello
 
¿Hola, como estas?
I think I spelled it correctly
Wait I already said hello
How do you do strikethrough
 
@North I looked at it, didn't see any actual clear things to do that would make the puzzle more than "try a bunch of stuff until you figure out what vaguely-clued extraction technique you were looking for"
@North three dashes on either side
 
12:34 AM
@Deusovi hmm thank you
 
@Deusovi hola
 
Good feedback
This is great wonderful
 
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Have fun!!!!!!!!"
I can just imagine a maniacal mastermind laughing diabolically and then abruptly stopping and saying in an enthusiastic voice "have fun!!!!!!!!"
 
Okay Ive added new hints
Though its gonna be pretty obvious now
But I need to award my bounty
And I'll try better next time
Whoops

Q: Not the usual "8 5 4 9 1 7 6 3 2 0" sequence puzzle

u_ndefinedThis is not the usual $8, 5, 4, 9, 1, 7, 6, 3, 2, 0$ sequence puzzle, which the answer of the pattern is The sequence is: $3, 9, 1, 5, 7, 0, 2, 4, 8, 6$. Can you figure the pattern of this sequence?

 
@Sphinx bah not possible
if one person has a common divisor with the person on their left, then the person on their left has a common divisor with the person on their right (the same one person)
oops
it says with the person opposite not on the left

Q: Can we have a longer bounty-period?

BmyGuestOn regular SE sites, bouties are meant to push interest in a question and - as soon as possible - attract some sort of attention. This works, to some extend, on PuzzlingSE as well, but the bounty-system is subtle different. Here, it is often more a "price-tag" for a puzzle, trying to convince th...
