    In Common II

    <font color=red>OK 25 clues at the time of this update---time for a clue</font color=red>


    1) Every letter before a mille I do use to leave my mark<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Mille is LATIN for 1,000, latine letters</span hide>
    2) When written forwards I am 1, backwards you could say I was born <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">anagram?</span hide>
    3) Some say I am a confused Nick<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Think of a famous Nick</span hide>

    Answer 1, 2 and 3 then give me a connection?

    Re: In Common II

    25 clues? I see only three.

    These are my associations, no idea about the real answers and their connection.

    1. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">D = 500, M = 1000, DM = abbreviation of Deutschmark (German currency before introduction of Euro)</span hide>

    2. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">1 in Dutch is "een", the reverse "nee" means "born" in French</span hide>

    3. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Satan (Old Nick), Santa (Saint Nicholas)</span hide>

    > 25 clues

    25 Views time for a clue......brain quicker than typing

    1) You are soooo very close wth D=500 are there any other latin letters that become before M (your #3 may give you a clue)
    2) If you are born and then died you will have ....what....(your #3 may give you a clue)
    3) Correct---now what have 1 and 2 got in common with this?

    If I were Ian Paisley, I'd probably say that the connection is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">the Pope</span hide> <img src=/S/devil.gif border=0 alt=devil width=15 height=15>

    Re: In Common II

    OK time to provide the solution to #1

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> I tried to provide a clue inside MILLE..this is latin for 1000...therefore Roman and was looking for roman letters..so every letter before mille is

    DCLXVI which when looked at makes 666

    Therefore the words are
    1) 666
    2) Devil
    3) Satan
