Fyrius and Me at throats again,
Bitter foes until the end,
One will poke, the other jab,
Give us knives, you think we’d stab?

Could it be, that we are one?
Jekyll, Hyde, we’ve come undone!
To see one’s self through eye of foe,
The greatest gift a man can know.

Congrats on the 10K Bro. And thanks for always challenging me to think!

You are my favorite Dutch, rational, formally dressed dog @Fyrius.

I love reading your posts and occasionally busting your chops for being such a serious Fyrius.

Mazel Tov™ (ducks for cover) for consistently great work!

A round of GA’s to all. My treat. XD

aprilsimnel's avatar

Hey! Congrats, @Fyrius! You have made it to the 10K! Mansion, that is. Swimmin’ pools. Movie stars (and I think Andrew counts, right?).

Fyrius's avatar

Just give me a good interwebs connection and I’m happy. XD

OreetCocker's avatar

Congrats @fyrius, nice work :-)

toomuchcoffee911's avatar

Congratulations @Fyrius!

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

Great work @Fyrius!! Your answers are always level headed, and beautifully logical. I raise my glass to you sir.

Fyrius's avatar

Again, thank you, everyone. :D

You give me too much credit, though. I’m nowhere near always level-headed. :)

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@Fyrius I’ll take your word for it.

janbb's avatar

@Fyrius I’d like to se you blow a gasket on here sometime then. C’mon, do it!

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@janbb I wonder, are dogs wearing suits and glasses still able to bark, or do they settle for a more subdued growl?

janbb's avatar

@FireMadeFlesh Inquiring minds want to know!

Fyrius's avatar

You two have clearly never seen me at the end of a long and exasperating debate going nowhere.

If you must know, I recall some specific instances when I lost my patience. See also my replies to the passive-aggressive ranting thread. I’ve also been modded for personal attacks once or twice.
I’ll leave it up to you whether what I do is a bark or a growl.

Val123's avatar

I need to quit my job. I glanced at your points @Fyrius when you posted in Chaz Maz’s 20 K and said, “Well HECK!!!” So, here I am.

Congrats!!! Drinks are on @janbb!!! Let’s just surprise her with the tab, shall we? :)

mattbrowne's avatar

Hartelijke gelukwensen! Always playing ball during our debates ;-)

This is so yotta, zetta, exa, peta, tera, giga, mega cool ! !! !!! !!!! !!!!! !!!!!! !!!!!!!

janbb's avatar

@Val123 Can you lend me a tenner? I’m broke after paying that bar bill!

Fyrius's avatar

Danke schön, Herr Braun. :)

I think Matt spent all his money on exclamation points…

Val123's avatar

@janbb Sure. What’s your fax number?

mattbrowne's avatar

@Fyrius – This is why there are DSL flat rates. All the extra exclamation points are

for free !! !! !!!! !!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recognize the pattern? Just count the ! between the blanks ;-)

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@mattbrowne Fibbonaci x 2?

mattbrowne's avatar

@FireMadeFlesh – Hah, next time I’ll have to make it even harder ;-)

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@mattbrowne I like a challenge!

Fyrius's avatar

How about this !!! . ! !!!! ! !!!!! !!!!!!!!! !! !!!!!! !!!!! !!! !!!!!

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@Fyrius I get the impression that is a randomly generated string just to turn my head inside out. My eyes are going all funny just trying to count them! Tell me though, is the ”!!! .” at the start part of the sequence?

Fyrius's avatar

Yes, it is.
Try writing out the amounts as numbers.

Val123's avatar

3.1313725444. Makes perfect sense now. (NOT!)

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

3.1415926535 = pi.

I tried to do this at 2:30am, and decided that the ’.’ was a zero.

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

My turn: !!!!! !!! ! ! !!! !!!!! !!!!!!!

Fyrius's avatar

You could be counting up from -5 to 7 with increments of 2, if the first few numbers are negative. Or down from 5 to -7 by the same logic.
That’s probably not it.

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

Close enough. It is |2x – 5|

Fyrius's avatar

Clever. Didn’t think of that.

Now try this one !!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You deserve a cookie if you can figure this one out.
Hint: I know bugger all about math.

mattbrowne's avatar

In the following series, find the missing number.

1584 5842 5834 5484 5584 5846 ?

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@mattbrowne I’m with @Fyrius – 5874.

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@Fyrius Now I’m totally screwed – four of those are multiples of three, one is a prime number, two are square numbers, there is no sequence of odd to even, and your hint just makes me think I’ve counted wrong! But I think I deserve a cookie anyway!

mattbrowne's avatar

Bingo !

Fyrius's avatar

It’s not a mathematically predictable sequence. It only makes sense if you translate the numbers to a different domain.

Here’s a cookie for your efforts: {::}

janbb's avatar

@Fyrius Can I ge a cookie too for absolutely no effort at all?

Fyrius's avatar

Now, now, don’t be lazy.

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

It says Fyrius! How appropriate! Damn, I really should have understood that hint. Thanks for the cookie!

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

Find the missing numbers:

2; 8; __; 32; __; 72; 108

Fyrius's avatar


Have another cookie. You earned it. {::}

janbb's avatar

Another for me?

Fyrius's avatar

No free cookies.
You can have one if you solve @FireMadeFlesh’ riddle.

Fred931's avatar

@FireMadeFlesh 42 and 42. Either way, it solves the problem.

Cruiser's avatar

Congrats on the 10 grand!

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@Fred931 Could you please explain that to me? They aren’t the answers I had in mind.

shpadoinkle_sue's avatar

@Fred931 I might be understanding this in the wrong way. But, lol!

le_inferno's avatar

HOLY CRAP. I can’t believe I missed this entirely. The first AiROWian to make it to 10k, I believe. Bummer… Well I’m proud of you, my little Dutchman! You’ve come so far!

Fyrius's avatar

Haha, thank you. :)
