Not too sure if this counts and a forum game, maybe it's a Zonko's thing.

Okay I sort of understand.
The sum of each row
From top to bottom;
1 = 1
2 = 1, 1
4 = 2, 1, 1
6 = 1, 2, 2, 1
8 = 1, 1, 2, 2, 1, 1
10 = 2, 1, 2, 2, 2, 1
12 = 1, 2, 1, 1, 3, 2, 1, 1
18 = 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 1, 1, 3, 1, 2, 2, 1
23 = 3, 1, 2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 3, 1, 1, 2, 2, 1, 1

Ugh... The 18 and the 23 messes me up. -.-; I'll try again later.

The rows can be ordered differently so it can be parallel.

1
1 1
1 2 1
1 2 2 1
1 1 2 2 1 1
1 2 2 2 2 1
1 1 1 2 3 2 1 1 1
1 1 2 2 1 1 3 1 1 2 2 1
1 1 1 3 2 2 2 2 2 3 1 1 1 1


Ugh... I mess this on up too.. I just know it, but I can't help but to post my theories. -.-; This is hard...

1 1 1 2 2 1 1 3 1 2 2 1
3 1 2 2 2 1 1 3 1 1 2 2 1 1

ugh it's too difficult to explain, but suffice to say that each line says what was in the previous. Except the beginning which was a little odd.

Um...I'm thinking the next line would be...
1311322113212221

see there's one 3 (13), one 1 (11), three 2s (32), two 1s (21), one 3 (13), two 1s (21), two 2s (22), and two 1s (21)

Makes sense?

Okay! I'm back.. Yeah. Working on an Ambulance for six hours and running off of three hours of sleep, made me forget to think about some riddles. Especially when working with Dom. (Extraordinarily funny, so he broke my concentration..) So, Here's one that's fairly, easy.. It's from Math Class again, although it has NOTHING what so ever to do with math yet again


M H A _ L


First clue: It's a popular.. Tune.

Here's a puzzle for you:

"This statement is false."

Is that true or not?

And another one:

Study this paragraph and all things in it. What is vitally wrong with it? Actually, nothing in it is wrong, but you must admit that it is most unusual. Don't just zip through it quickly, but study it scrupulously. With luck you should spot what is so particular about it and all words found in it. Can you say what it is? Tax your brains and try again. Don't miss a word or a symbol. It isn't all that difficult?

This one's a hard one, see if you can answer it

Strange... The first one is one of those question that always lurk in my head. How can it be false and true at the same time? It could be not, since it said so, but then it said so then it has to be true. It is rather confusing. True or not...

It is rather hard and I do not think that people can actually act on whether it is true or not. But then if it is not true then it is fake? That statement is a statement and cannot be fake so by looking at it this way I think it is true.

It would be confusing if you put 'True or False.' Since 'not' is a vague word I was able to think of such explaination. Either that or I am really open-minded.

As Chrissy said the second is missing 'e'. Normally 'e' appears a lot in a paragraph. Like in this one there is 10. Weird right?
