See if you can figure this out

Petals Around the Rose

Once you have figured it out, don't spoil the fun for others...let them figure it out for themselves!

Interesting. Took a few minutes for me to "get it".
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 5:04:32 AM EDT
Well I got it after typing 0 in a few times.

Don't understand what it proves.

It had taken Dr. Duke well over a year himself, and he would always explain that the smarter you were, the longer it took to figure it out



Only a few minutes?

ETA: It is actually very simple. Not difficult at all.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 5:11:22 AM EDT
Cool...took a couple of tries. Very interesting.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 5:18:01 AM EDT
i got it on my first try. not that difficult.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 5:21:13 AM EDT
After thinking about it for a minute, I knew the answer.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 5:22:10 AM EDT
I got on my second try after using my first try as a control. I really do not see what the fuss is all about.

Ha I am smart AND it took me 1 failure to figure it out.

that the smarter you were, the longer it took to figure it out.


I must be incredibly smart since I just don't seem to get it!

I'm much smarter that those guys so now I'm skerred to open it.

What if I never get it? I can't die with this on my conscience! I'll be a zombie.

It is simply a game to make the simple minded feel smart

Hint: it is not a math problem, it is a fuzzy logic problem.

Think of the question like a 5 year old would, then it is easy.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 7:06:14 AM EDT
someone wanna clue me in??
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 7:09:57 AM EDT
Easy. Got it in 3 rolls, confirmed it in 5 rolls.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 7:12:59 AM EDT
I was trying to figure it out mathematically and then it just came to me. Then I really felt dumb when I found out how easy it was.

Either I'm an IDIOT or its to simple, plus I SUCK at math
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 7:33:28 AM EDT
unbelievably hard to get, then insanely easy. Fun. I can see where it says the smarter you are the longer it takes, but I cant say why as to spoil it.

I guess I'm too smart. I've tried coming up with equations, sequences, etc, and nothing works. I guess I am thinking too hard.


Here, answer this:

What is greated than God, more evil than the devil.
Rich people need it, poor people have it.
If you drink it you will die.

Or

If you say it, it disappears.

Me too...makes no sense. I guess you and I are too smart for this puzzle?
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 8:02:53 AM EDT
That took some time.

Kinda lame once you know the answer.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 8:03:19 AM EDT
Took me a couple minutes but I got it.

Link Posted: 9/15/2005 8:10:38 AM EDT
Took me about five rolls and ten minutes...

Meh
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 8:16:54 AM EDT
I don't see any petals. I don't see a damn rose. I see dice. WTF? I've been staring at this thing for a few minutes, and I have no idea what they're talking about.

This is pissing me the hell off!

Appears that it took Bill Gates an hour and a half to figure it out. LINK



EDIT: Finally figured it out.

YOU BASTARDS!!!

Anyone care to give a brother a clue?
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 8:33:08 AM EDT
Got it, took me about 5 minutes.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 8:36:58 AM EDT
A friend of mine pointedme to this a while back. Took me about an hour of frustration, and quite a few clues. It really isn't a math problem. There is no real equation, other than addition... you simply need to locate the petals and the rose.

Like someone said - it's sort of a fuzzy logic problem, or better still - look at it like that 5 year old.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 8:37:04 AM EDT
Man...I'm fucking smart.


I don't get it at all. I need help.
