The Million Dollar Question

Recommended Posts

Fun fact: It is by definition possible to do this in only twenty guesses if you do it this way:


You guess halfway. In this case, 500000. It's either correct, or 1-499999 or 500001-999999


Higher or lower. You guess halfway, that's either 750000 or 250000. Now, it's either 1-249999, 250001-499999, etc, or correct.


You continue doing this. Every time, you're splitting into twice as many possibilities. 2*2*2*...*2. Once you reach 20, you're at 1,048,576, so you're now splitting into less than one, so by definition you know the correct number.

Correct! You win ten points.


And no bonus points which means I've got another 10 points spare if you'd like me to think of another number?



I just maxed out your credit card, glgl

    • Welcome to Dragonmount Norma! I made you a siggy as a welcome gift. I noticed you're a red head like I used to be until my luck ran out so I thought this would be cute. You don't have to use it if you don't want to though 🙂   For copyright reasons, I used the font "Children of the Light" from UrbanFont and this image : http://www.wallpapermaiden.com/wallpaper/5602/redhead-model-reading-a-book-fall-forest-trees    
    • Unless the glass pillars depict the most likely scenario... they depicted Randland divided before the Seachan. 
    • The old man who laughed himself to death. Supercalifragalistic was real compulsion she wove over his mind preventing him from stopping laughing. This too happened in the world of dreams.    Black Ajah is known for drawing people into the world of dreams to control them, that is exactly what Mary Poppins did to the kids too.   Mary Poppins also is a time traveler and went to a square in Tarabon and flew, like she does, also hung out with the birds.
