So lbloom got question ⰀⰊ (national flags) on INTPx for 35 points, squeaking into the lead.
Utisz;280518 said:Okay, so I extended the hint on the last remaining question.
To avoid any ambiguity about guessing or partial answers and so forth, I need the exact date on which Ava was born plz!
Wow, group theory! We're not going there.
They're related.Could the Ava question be considered a "hint" at all for this new question?
Wow! Never heard of a repdigit before. The answer is not that technical.Okay... It's symmetrical and could be seen as a repdigit because it's all one thing (nurses in blue). In fact, it could be seen as a repunit because they're vertically-shaped, like the number one. These are related through the number 111, which seems like a possible birthdate for Ava (january 11) since the day of the message was jan. 10. Probably not right, though...
Yep, essentially that was what I was going for! C.J.Woolf got there on INTPx.Could it be because she was born on a palindrome day? October 2, 2001 (10-02-2001)
Or at least, anything to do with palindromes?
Not even palindromes, no.Piggybacking on Rolling Cattle... Not only could the pictures be considered palindromes, but they're even palindromes. Just like 10/02/2001 is an even palindrome. Ava said it was more special than that day, which, with a time zone difference, could be 1/11.
Correct! 40 points.Nurses Run!! Race car!
Cheers! (And that would make you approximately 97.959% beast yourself!)
Fourth place is very good!
ggGood game everyone!
Maybe next time.I think the quiz may have been timed so I couldn't join for most of it. I was busy the past few days after it began. Couldn't really spend that much time looking at the questions, although being able to answer them as fast as possible would be considered a good sign of efficient thinking, and logical puzzles to solve. It wouldn't correlate with increased arithmetical abilities a priori. Intelligence is ability to adapt. Ultimately, as long as an organism mates and has offspring using any method or even opportunity to do so, they win, and in some ways wouldn't matter if they kept living after, not that there's some spirit or reincarnation, but they did what life does, reproduced. So it would be as if they'd technically have to have as many kids as possible, not that that's explicitly the goal or even implicitly desired, yet, there's room for certain people to practice so called polyamory or gamy. Most societies have complicated marriage rules, though, so it's as much effort as the work is worth, the "reward".
