It was a strange round. 5 players voted too start a new round,
yet only 2 of them did play, plus Garth who came in at the end.
(Come to think of it though, 3 players do equal 4 players and one
more would have been serious trouble because then we would have
been 5 which cannot equal 3+1... It was all for the best probably).
The round was also very short, and I ended up invalidating the
rules I liked best.
Final standings:
Winner: Oerjan Score: -1
Wizard: Garth Score: 2
Ronald Score: -1
Everyone else Score: 0
(Lookahere! Zero mean scoring!)
The new judge is Oerjan (who has promised to be a style point Meanie,
too - haw haw haw [evil grin]).
ROUND 15 - FINAL RULES SET
FANTASY RULE 15:1 (Oerjan)
Every fantasy rule must contain a mathematical puzzle.
Every fantasy rule must answer the puzzle in the previous
rule, if any.
Now, what is two plus two?
VERDICT: Rule 15:1 is judged VALID
SCORE: -2
FANTASY RULE 15:2 (Ronald)
**************
*Two plus two*
*equals four!*
*All Rules,*
*that have a*
*number that*
*is a prime,*
*(like mine)*
*shall have*
*the shape of*
*a square. Is*
*67 a prime,*
*I ask y'all?*
**************
VERDICT: Rule 15:2 is judged VALID
SCORE: -2
FANTASY RULE 15:3 (Oerjan)
67 is no prime. Because
when you multiply 6 by 9, you
get 42, as documented in The Hitch-
hiker Series. Adding 9, we get 7*9 = 51.
Dividing by 3, we get 7*3 = 17, and then
subtracting 7 gives us 7*2 = 10. Now
7*13 = 7*(3+2*5) = 17 + 10*5 = 67, Q.E.D.
I shall leave it to my successor to show
why 3 is not a prime number, either.
To increase the mathematical standard
of our rules, each future rule must
contain a proof or a diagram,
like this:
7 ---\ *
}-> (7,13) ----> 67
13 --/
VERDICT: Rule 15:3 is judged VALID
SCORE: 1
KUNNE's COROLLARY:
Oerjan's Last Theorem (that 3 is not prime) has interesting
consequences.
3 is not prime, so there must be an integer other than 1 and 3, that
divides 3. This can only be 2. Hence 2*2=3 or 4=3.
In Fantasy Rule terms this can only mean that Rule 15:4
is identical to 15:3!
FANTASY RULE 15:5 (Ronald)
***************************
*"prime" : first rate,*
* fundamental.*
*"odd" : irregular, *
* unusual.*
* *
*Everybody knows that 3 is*
*"odd". But an odd, that*
*is, an irregular and un-*
*usual number can not be*
*fundamental and first as*
*well. *
*Hence: 3 is not prime.*
*The puzzle: *
*find the number that goes*
*in the last corner. *

* 5 --- 8 --- 21 *

* 7 --- 4 --- 15 *

VERDICT: Rule 15:5 is judged VALID
SCORE: 0
FANTASY RULE 15:i (Garth)
The missing number of the square is 1.
This rule shall be numbered 15:i, where i is the
square root of -1.
Rule 15:3 proves that 3 is not a prime. Therefore,
an integer between 1 and 3 must divide evenly into
3. The only such integer is 2. Hence 2*2=3, and
3=4, as previously discussed. But if 3=4, then
3+1=4+1 and 4=5. Similarly 5=6. By the same
argument, all integers after 5 are equal to 5.
Additionally, all rational numbers are equal to 1,
since 5/5=1.
The puzzle: What numbers are left to number rules
by? :)
Note: 5 is not a prime, because it is equal to 67
which is not a prime.
VERDICT: Rule 15:i is judged INVALID
SCORE: 2
FANTASY RULE 15:e (Ronald)
Their are no integers left to number my Rules.
But Oerjan and I are not quite fools!
N included in Z included in Q included in R included in C:
there is an infinite set of numbers still left for me.
All future Rules shall only be validated by Stein,
when the poster has obeyed this law of mine:
Thou shalt not use any more,
any of the ten digits we have used before!
Oerjan requires that I symbolically spell it:
_
[0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9] ( ) Rule = empty ==> Rule = VALID.
Dear players, no tell me:
how would you *describe* the tangens of pi?
VERDICT: Rule 15:e is judged INVALID
SCORE: 1
ROSE's LEMMA:
ALL irrationals are equal to e (or infinity)!
Any irrational can be expressed as a non-repeating decimal,
say for example 0.abcdefg..... But that number is just
equivalent to a/10 + b/100 + c/1000 + ... Each term is
rational, and so is equal to 1. So the number as a whole
is 1+1+1+1+1... = infinity
