    The order is correct, there's 3 letters of each, so I imagine that all of these are initials of something except one. I can't be bothered to check that.
    EDIT: Nah, that doesn't seem to be it.

    i think its one of those things that makes you obsess over it for hours, trying to find an answer with a fine tooth combe when its all correct and there is no error, i wasted about an hour on one before haha

    I had this on MySpace... I reposted it, just to see if someone would message me back telling me they'd found it but nothing :crying:
  • Indrid ColdIndrid Cold Warming up? Posts: 16,688
    Maybe the error is that they forgot to put an error in it?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I highly doubt anybody with a myspace will have the capacity to do it :razz:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    ..the only error i found is that this is done wrong. ive seen this trick, one of the "O's" is supposed to be a zero (0)

    making the "O" line look like: 0OO, O0O. or OO0

    Another one, I saw years ago:

    Calculate the value of this (a to z are variables, and so is x):
    (a-x)*(b-x)*(c-x)* ... *(z-x)

    One of those questions which require logic and patience. The more you have of one quality, the less you need of the other. I think this just requires you to think rationally and dive in preparing to accept trial and improvement. I'm not too good at that. :( I always get frustrated when I sit down with a difficult problem and don't get it. gah. But I always like a challenge! ;)

    Believe it or not, there's no trick. It's simple mathematics. If you can read it, you know the answer -you just might not realize it. ;)

    Isn't it something about it being a formula and not an equation? Are you supposed to collect light terms? Am I missing something here...? :crying:

    ETA: Oooo I get it now :D Zero!

    The alphabet containts only one of each letter.

    Here there a three, therefore, it is wrong.

    You are all so inbred.

    I knew the answer to this one in a matter of a few seconds. :thumb:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I swear when this was sent to me on myspace before, the error was that there was an M in with the Ns. So it went:

    LLL
    MMM
    NMN

    or something like that, and it was supposed to be hard to spot.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    It's quite easy, you are looking in the wrong place

    There's a missing apostrophe folks

    Is it someone reciting the alphabet at the North Pole in a snow storm?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    the answer

    each letter is used every letter 3 times
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    :eek: No way!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    The error is that of the friends of the sad little twat who invented this when they didn't punch him in the face and tell him to go and get laid and stop being a dull little prick.

    So true :lol:

    It's nothing to do with the AAA to ZZZ letters. The error was in the first line, but Young & Sexy forgot to post the error.

    Instead of being "Find the error. It's impossible!"

    It should have been posted as "Find the error. Its impossible!". You knock the apostrophe from the word "it's" to make it into a deliberate error. I have seen this test posted before with the mistake in.

    Well I'm glad I took time out reading that thread :p
