here is a little game you pick a two digit number in your head add them then subtract the total from your original number and stare at the pic of your number and this thing shows you the pic of your number.

Your answer will always be a mutiple of 9, so if you look at 9, 18, 27, etc., that's the image.

that's it!!? that simple i even tried to just pick 14 and then go to a random number and it still worked.

Yeah. I tried it a few times until I realized that all the multiples of 9 had the same insignia.
That's right, I only act dumb for your enjoyment.

Good call Niteraider! Those math games are fun. David Copperfield would include them in his shows every now and then.

Just happy to help a fellow 'scaper.

these sorts of things always revolve around adding digits and the number 9.

Speaking of math tricks with nines, my dad has a way of multiplying 1 and 2 digit numbers by nine on his hands. The double digit one only works if the first digit is smaller than the second. Hold your fingers out and separate at the first digit if there are two and bend down at the second, or only digit. Example: 9 x 3, bend down your left middle finger to and you have 27 (2 on left side of the bend, etc.) For 9 x 37, separate at the left middle, so you have three on the left, then bend down at the right index so you have three in the middle and right, for 333.

Here is one for you that works most of the time, give this a try
1. Pick a number between 2 and 10
2. Multiply by 9
3. You now have a two digit number so go ahead and add those two digits to come up with a single number. ex 43.....4+3=7
4. subtract 5 from your single digit
5. Take that single digit and aplly it to a letter like such. A is 1, B is 2,c3,d4, e5,f6,g7,h8......and so on.
6. Now take your letter and think of a country that begins with that letter
7. Take the last letter of that country and think of an animal.
8. take the last letter of that animal and think of a color.
Are you ready scroll down when you are.....
There Are No Orange Kangaroos in Denmark :P
Sometimes this does not work because people use kittens, which is not the name of an animal or kuola. This simply amazes the unknowing when it works though.

This one also usually works.
Think of one of the Revolutionary War heroes or an early American President's middle initial.
John Quincy Adams (since the others didn't have middle names early on)
