  1. Maybe you have seen this before, but let's assume you haven't and can answer this question:

    If you can, you are considered to have an IQ at genius level:


    What is the next number in this sequence?


    Here is an even better question: If every American, 300 million or so, was to plant a tree, would that be enough to suck up a reasonable percentage of the green house gases being emitted into the air to save our planet?

    I think our grandchildren are all screwed. Glad I will be dead by next century.

  8. Who the feck cares? Tell me how it will make me some money or how it will benefit me if I take the time to figure it out and I might get interested.

    When you look at the sequence, look at those numbers backwards... and you'll see a pattern:


    What do you see...

    4 squared
    5 squared
    6 squared
    7 squared
    8 squared

    9 squared = 81

    backwards becomes 18

    sorry to ruin it for the others :)
