NICE PARLOR TRICK HERE
Not being terribly mathematically inclined (unlike some in my family) it took me a few tries to figure the thing out. Hat tip to The Corner.
It's a mathematical equivalent of the classic card-force trick, isn't it? I've noticed that when you reload the page, you get different symbols for each number--but all the other symbols are just smoke and mirrors. The "card force" here is, regardless of what two-digit number you choose, the product is always going to be some multiple of 9. Therefore all the multiples of 9 in the table on the right should have the same symbol attached to them, and unless you do the math wrong, that's the symbol that will show up in the crystal.Post a Comment
