    Is it.....oh I wasn't planning that but never mind have a [choccy bar]

    You can have another one if you can find another non-mathematical reason <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>BTW this is not a Rudi <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">9668 - the other numbers are listed in the NGC as astronomical objects, whereas 9668 is not.</span hide>?

    If that is right, you can have a [choccy bar]

    Re: Odd one out

    Gosh, another selection [choccy bar]

    I think I will tell you My answer<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> 7411 as it is the only number that has all straight lines making up the digits, all the others have a curve in them</span hide>

    I told you it was not a mathematical one <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    But don't let me stop you all finding more reasons <img src=/S/cool.gif border=0 alt=cool width=15 height=15>

    Ha! A Rudi after all! <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">It depends on the way digits are written/displayed - on an old-fashioned calculator, ALL digits are made up from straight lines, and it's perfectly possible to use curved lines for the digits in 7411.</span hide>

    .....as typed in Arial and displayed using the brushedsteel12.css <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I am always willing to take alternatives, Rob has had two [choccy bars] and "you" have had one [choccy bar]. Rudi never gives [choccy bar] <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Re: Odd one out

    I have instructed Mr Rosebleed at my bank to provide full service, access, etc to a Mr Jezza providing he can show the required physical <!post=key,532,793>key<!/post>, preferably constructed of lollypops but anything from tooth picks to railway sleepers would be sufficient. I have further instructed Mr Rosebleed that under no circumstances is he to let any person that looks like a little girl carrying bread into the building (naturally, for his own safety).

    Thank you Tim, maybe you could get your sister to meet me there, the one with one leg shorter than the other, not the one with the snake, she sounds nice <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
