    I have two questions tonight. The first person correctly answering them will be allowed to select a TMFL team to be revealed. You cannot win BOTH questions. The deadline for answering is 6PM EST on 6/17/12. If there is no correct answer for a question I will not reveal a team for that question.

    Question 1

    1
    1 1
    2 1
    1 2 1 1
    1 1 1 2 2 1

    What is the next line (bottom)?

    Question 2
    Who was the first person on TSO to be banned at their own request? He may or may not have went to Harvard.

    I think you're right. Although the slider talk guy is a possibility as well... cant remember his name. I thought it was guru or something.

    I think he joined N.O. right before he left.

    I also think I'm the guy who replaced him.

    To generate a member of the sequence from the previous member, read off the digits of the previous member, counting the number of digits in groups of the same digit. For example:
    • 1 is read off as "one 1" or 11.
    • 11 is read off as "two 1s" or 21.
    • 21 is read off as "one 2, then one 1" or 1211.
    • 1211 is read off as "one 1, then one 2, then two 1s" or 111221.
    • 111221 is read off as "three 1s, then two 2s, then one 1" or 312211...

    Ending early tonight.

    Cheez wins question 1.
    Perry wins question 2.

    Side note, the guy didn't go to harvard, he just pretended to. He left the site when I figured it out.

    The sequence grows indefinetly and no digits other than 1,2, and 3 appear in the sequence, unless the seed number contains sucha digit or a run of more than three of the same digit.

    Conway's cosmological theorem: Every sequence eventually splits into a sequence of "atomic elements", which are finite subsequences that never again interact with their neighbors. There are 92 elements containing 1, 2, and 3 only, which John Conway named after the Natural Chemical Elements. There are also two transuranic elements for each digit other than 1, 2, 3

    The terms eventually grow in length by about 30% per generation.

    Termed the Look-and-Say sequence

    Harvard coursework is a joke fyi. Grade inflation out the ying yang. I have two good friends that went there. They both said high school was more challenging (though they did go to prep school)

    that might be one of the funniest things i've heard of on this site- was he embarrassed or what was his thought behind self banning?
    do you think he came back under a different name?

    Wasn't Questioning just curious as to how he figured it out. Seems like that would be hard to figure out

    I think he uses the IP address or some other techno-jargon stuff. I've seen Shaun and drifter talking about it when they've caught guys trying that trick.
