    hahah google owns.

    http://www.npr.org/features/feature.php?wfId=3916173

    in case you're wondering, the answer is

    http://www.7427466391.com

    which then poses another question....




    so you go to that login box, enter in the user name and the password, which is the answer to the above.

    5966290435 is the answer :)

    which then takes you to http://www.google.com/labjobs/index.html which is a high tech career with google.

    the whole thing was to attract smart ass nerds :D

    pretty bad ass.

    i know where all the numbers came from if you give them to me but i dont know how to figure them out. see finding the first string of 10 digits that was a prime number wouldnt be that hard. however finding the number would be hard. you would need a computer or something to find the first 10 digit prime number in the sequence of decimal places that e has (infinite). next they give you values for a fucntion. finding the actual function isnt important but realizing what things are effecting the funtion is.

    the first value of the function (f(1)) is the first 10 digits of e's decimals. or the ten digit number starting from the first decimal.

    f(2) is the ten digit number starting from the 5th decimal

    f(3) is the ten digit number starting from the 23rd decimal

    f(4) is the ten digit number starting from the 100th decimal

    now you have a sequence of 1,5,23,100,...,n.

    im sure you can find a function to fit this sequence but i didnt feel like it, lol

    now whats messed up is that the 5th number doesnt seem to follow the sequence and is unexpected.

    f(5) is the ten digit number starting from the 118th decimal.

    the rate of change is starting to get smaller now, and would really hinder trying to find out the 5th number cause you would be trying to follow the pattern of something exponetially increasing and not for it to start to plateau or come to a maximum.

    maybe i was using the wrong method? i dunno this math is all way beyond me buts its cool and id be very interested in how you figure it all out the right way. maybe mike (calesta) can provide some more insight?

    Huh? I don't know no math. :lol:

    I'll take a look later on and see if I can figure something out. That is a pretty badass way to attract potential employees though. :thumbsup:
