    OMG just joined and stumble upon "The Petals"

    Found you all through a google for bios explainations.

    Very nice site, super info,very helpful.

    The PETALS, though, :nuts: WOW, couldnt get it out my head.

    Did manage to crack the code in just under 23 minutes. :dance:

    Have to admit I went to Mad1's link and something about the way the game was laid out there, it clicked in after 8 or 9 rolls.

    Survey says...10/10!!! Most Excellent Brain Boggler.

    A little information is a dangerous thing :shhh: :shhh: :shhh:

    Hi there XyLose! Welcome to ARP!

    Glad that you find the site informative and helpful :)

    Also, do stay around as we try to give out lots of goodies from time to time. right now we are running a contest for the Seagate 100GB momentus hard disk as well. Do join in!

    And as for Petals :) I'd admit that if i were to do this 2 years ago, i would have been stumped, probably for days... but over the years after discovering that one needs to think out of the box... sometimes literally too... trained myself to see things in lateral mode.. it helped a lot. haha.

    Err, he did not. He only MEMORIZED the values.

    The reason they knew that was because he thought the name of the game was "Pedal around the roses"!!!! :haha:

    no la... eventually he knew what it was... read properly!

    Haha.. proves yet again, what you read, see and listen is always according to you belief window. ;) If you want to know more about what I just said here... do check out a book called What Matters Most by Hyrum W. Smith. darn good book.

    Err... That was what Bill claimed.

    BUT read what I quoted above. They had proof that Bill actually didn't know what it was all about because he got the NAME wrong! :mrgreen:

    Let me quote the book Hard Drive : Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire. Written by two Seattle Post-Intelligencer investigative journalists - James Wallace and Jim Erickson. A national bestseller, I might add. ;)

    Turn to page 124 and you will see this :

    Incidentally, if Bill actually figured it out himself, there would be no need for them to store the napkin in a vault as evidence. Evidence of what? :wicked:
