Re: Noodle Scratcher

A friend sent this to me...it came as an Excel attachment which, when you answer, tells you if you are right or wrong. It's now become a micro-obsession to figure the thing out...I've got 14 so far (about 15 minutes worth)...can you do it?

You have to work out what the letters mean. See No 0 as and example. According to MENSA, if you get 19+ of these, you are a 'genius'. Only 2 MENSA members achieved full marks. See how well you do.

Scoring: 1-5 Average, 6-11 somewhat intelligent, 12 to 18 intelligent, 19+ Genius

0 24 H in a D 24 HOURS IN A DAY
1 26 L of the A
2 7 D of the W
3 7 W of the W
4 12 S of the Z
5 66 B of the B
6 52 C in a P (WJs)
7 13 S in the USF
8 18 H on a G C
9 39 B of the O T
10 5 T on a F
11 90 D in a R A
12 3 B M (S H T R)
13 32 is the T in D F at which W F
14 15 P in a R T
15 3 W on a T
16 100 C in a R
17 11 P in a F (S) T
18 12 M in a Y
19 13=UFS
20 8 T on a O
21 29 D in F in a L Y
22 27 B in the N T
23 365 D in a Y
24 13 L in a B D
25 52 W in a Y
26 9 L of a C
27 60 M in a H
28 23 P of C in the H B
29 64 S on a C B
30 9 P in S A
31 6 B to an O in C
32 1000 Y in a M
33 15 M on a D M C

And when I'm rich
And meet Bob Hope
We'll shoot some golf
And shoot some dope

Re: Noodle Scratcher

Its pretty easy, but I'm no genius. Right triangles books in the Bible, days in a year minutes in an hour... simple stuff.

Re: Noodle Scratcher

geniuses rarely think they are....I got the easy one's (well, not the bible ones) but others like the 8 T on a O weren't what I thought they were.....and 5 T on a F is definatly NOT 5 Teeth on a Fish

I'll add to/ help figment's list:
#6: cards in a pack (should be deck) WITHOUT JOKERS
#14 Players on a Rugby Team
#29 Squares on a Chess Board
