That's pretty neat LD, I kept thinking Egytian Pyramids with the math section.

So, in another conclusion to one I worked out, "Yardwork is" a greater good ? ( lighning bolts fly....)

I used to be good at math, until they snuck the mm in. Now I can't figure out anything!

Very good video!! One that always fascinated me was the #9. ex: 9x2=18, 1+8=9, 9x3=27, 2+7=9 and so on. I don't know far it goes up.

I like that one also.
Well, it trips up at 99. Then again at 189 and 198. Then again at 279, but the first one without a '9' throwing it off is 288.

My favorite, one I used to do as a bar trick, was the exponents of two.

1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, etc. I used to be able to go the 20th power, 1,048,576. Now I usually trip up somewhere after 32,768.
