Blog post # 85:

Here are the last 3 pictures I have made.

Substance Indeed Autocratic

Hazardous Equilibrium

Aperiodic Blasphemy

----------------------------------

First, let's go over the results of the poll.

There were two votes. One vote for 327, the other for 401. Both votes are wrong.

The question, again:

What is (the 10th decimal digit after the decimal point of pi) times (the 10th prime) plus (the square of (the 10th composite))?

Let us see:

pi starts out: 3.1415926535...

So, the 10th digit after the decimal point is 5.

The first 10 primes are:

2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29.

So, the 10th prime is 29.

And the first 10 composites are:

4,6,8,9,10,12,14,15,16,18.

So, the 10th composite is 18.

Calculating...

5 times 29 is 145.

And 18 squared is 18 times 18 is 324.

Adding: 145 + 324 = 469.

So, the answer is 469, the last selection.

(I thought I would trick you all by making the real answer the last answer. Nobody hardly ever picks the first answer or the last answer when they pick an answer at random, I bet.)

A puzzle: Try to decode this:

19,1,19,17,2, ,3,14,11,12, ,12,12,3, ,

4,5,5,11,11,8,11, ,0,7,15,0,15,13, ,1,.,

18,19, ,15,4,2,5, ,6,7,8,11,3,13, ,

5,2,7,17, ,0,4,11,12,3,13, ,3,5, ,

1,3, ,14,11,8,9, ,

13,11,4,8,7,1,3,15,11,6,2,11,0,13, ,

5,12,7,19, ,6,7,8,11,3,13, ,3,9, ,

6,7,15,0,15,13,1, ,13,12,3,2, ,7,12,3, ,

11,2,13,17,13,6,6,2, ,7,7,15,0,15,13, ,

2,5, ,8,2,15, ,15,4,2,5, ,

7,3,0,5,11,11,6,1,13,11, ,0,7,15,0,15,13, ,

1,4, ,14,18, ,1,5, ,9,9,3,5, ,7,12,1,10, ,

6,8,14,0,18,6,2.

Clues:

* The first letter is S.

* The spaces are in the correct places.

(Example: The 1st word is indeed 5 letters long.)

* The message itself tells how to decipher it.

* The solution has something (not the obvious thing) to do with: a=1, b=2, c=3, d = 4, etc.

[Politics alert! Politics alert!]

There is one foreigner who is a real threat to American democracy.

No, not Osama Bin Laden.

I'm talking about Rupert Murdoch!

He hates us for our freedom, you know...

--------------------------------

I honestly believe that if there is a God, then "He" doesn't make people suffer because He hates them.

No, He hates them because they suffer.

--------------------------------

(Did I post the following already?)

Terrorists who bomb people because of religion are guilty of....

BLASTphemy!....
