I Can Read Your Minds....You`ll see. by Wheelrim on 25 July 2007 12:00pm
 
Here we go.
1. Think of a Number between 2 and 10.
2. Multiply that Number by 9.
3. You will have a two figure Number Now.
4. Those two figures, add them together.
5. The number you have now, take 5 from it.
6. The Number you now have will correspond to a letter, for instance, 1=A, 2=B etc. FIND YOUR LETTER.
7. Think of a country beginning with that letter.
8. Using the second letter of that country, think of an animal beginning with that letter.
9. Think of the colour of that animal.

Ok. I will post my thoughts (sorry) on the Travel Section of `Chatterbox`.

Did it work Ellerd?

Whilst on my `Drive to Australia` I went into Cairns, the local Bus Company there were very kind to me and serviced my `Van for free as it was the same model as they ran locally. Also, have you been to Paranella Park?
What a lovely place, even more so when you hear why it was established.

The first time I did it I got a grey elephant from Yemen. Second time round I got a orange jaguar from Djibouti.

No, I've never been to Paronella Park. The "castle" is still standing, but the vegetation was stripped bare by a cyclone last year. I've heard it hasn't completely recovered yet...

With respect, you can't be doing it right, Ellerd.

The number in 6. above is always 4 which is therefore a D.

Most people think of Denmark as there are only two or three other countries in this category - Dominica, Dominican Republic and Djibouti.

The second letter of Denmark is E and although there ARE other animals beginning with E - elk for example - most people think of elephant. Which of course is grey.

I first did this riddle years ago - and came up with grey elephant from Denmark, although I did my best to scupper it.
