  2. Haaa… for once I got one of your puzzles right!!!!

  3. wow at first we got 5000 but when we said it out loud it made sense!

  4. I use my brain for higher level functions like cursing you in the nicest words possible, Harry! You should hear the high-brow rant going on in there now. It’s brilliant. 4,100 indeed!

  5. I flunked it, but got it when I read back through! lol

  6. I tried adding the thousands separately then the tens and got 4100!! How hell does that happen?! Lol

  7. huh? I am confused – nothing new.. how can it DO that?

  8. I must remember that, Lizzie is special 🙂

  9. @___@ Got 5000, and no matter how I tried it so many ways I wasn’t getting 4100… and I’m taking Physical Chemistry in school now and getting A. What the heck! lol

  10. It’s amazing how I fall for these things every time, despite having seen many similar ones before. Thanks DP, for reminding me again of how important it is to laugh at myself! 😀

  11. It is true, apparently it is easy to miscalculate! 🙂 Good one.

  12. got it right only the third time..a good one:)
