A thread for inventing your own IQ tests. Normally you wouldn't give the answer until people had tried to reply. But I will give you one of mine with its answer to start the ball rolling.

Complete the following sequence of matches by providing what would be in the next nine spaces.

5,5,5,5,5,5,5,Vs,space, space, space, space, space, space, space, space, space

Answer:

5,5,5,5,5,5,5,Vs vs 6,6,6,6,6,6,6,Vis

So yes - the 6 and 5 in the 65 mph represent the 6th and 5th letters of the alphabet. Those are F and E. The 5 in the minutes represents the 5th letter of the alphabet. That is an E.

The 1 in the 21 miles is the number 1. The 2 in the 21 miles is the number 2 and that must be added to the station B which is the second letter of the alphabet and it is also a 2. So that is a 1 first and a 2 plus 2 second which equals 4 so that number is 1 and 4 - ie 14 - and the fourteenth letter of the alphabet is an N.

That just leaves the 33 miles which is to be divided into two segments each of 3 and multiplied - 3 times 3 equals 9 - and then you add Station A with A being the first letter of the alphabet so that is a 1 and Station C with C being the third letter of the alphabet so that is a 3. 9 plus 1 plus 3 equals 13.

But the question was specifically about the cost at Station B so you need to add a further 2 - B being the second letter of the alphabet - in order that the answer fully addresses that question. 13 plus 2 equals 15. O is the 15th letter of the alphabet so that then is an O.

So it is F, E, E, N and O. Clearly it is an anagram. There would be no fee for the cheese and tomato rolls.

If a member of the equine species had expired but you continue to flagellate it, what are you doing?

Readers seem to be struggling a little so perhaps a clue is in order.

H1 is hairdo.

Correct gender but the other details are wrong.

Second clue - K2 is knees.

So, yep.

The third and fourth clues.

Third clue. B-B1 is belly-button.

Fourth clue. Not a mermaid on the rocks beside a rock pool.

I will address the other questions when some progress has been made on this one. :)

Gord, luv a duck.

Ain't they all bleedin' slow.

Fink we might as well get this over wiv now. Behind the silence, there is a lot of chomping at the bit. Oh. yes. I know it. Nah. It don't make any sense. Oh yes it does. You are just too much up your own arts to fink structurally. It is Damian Hirst's Verity if she hadn't been so Marmite cherished by some locals, totally static on concrete, half skeletal, and with her foetus hanging out like a female winkle, though without the cheesiness and the desperate male drive for physical expression, just to re-inforce justice. Lurve actuawally.
