If I answer these questions I can win something very very cool and I know I'm cheating, but I want to win, can anyone test their skills on these?



1. I got number 1.

2. I'm thinking of getting blue shoes to match my heart grenade. If you tell me who I am you can use the first three letters of my name.

3. I always wanted to write a song about the perfect girl. The thing about that is, none exist. If you think of a song that was written for the perfect girl write down the first three letters of the last word it's called.

4. If A = 2 and Z = 377, what does 35, 152, 135, 299, and 209 equal?

5. I got number 5.

6. What do you think is punk? Do you think a show like Jackass is punk? I don't, I think the most original punk video is also a name of a band. If you figure out the band you can figure out the name of the video and drop the last letter of it's title.

Punk, in the words of Billie Joe Armstrong is when you kick a trash can...

...when someone else does it just to follow, it's no longer punk. It's trendy.

I just copied and pasted this straight from the website. The riddles will give you letters, ALL the letters from each of the riddles equal a word or phrase.

For #6 I know that Lemmy Motorhead, I believe, wrote a song called "R.A.M.O.N.E.S." that the Ramones performed. However, I do not believe they made a video for it. So, ultimately, I just didn't really help you at all, unless you can find the video for it, may it exist or not.

If you can tell us the answers, or the letters that are used for the ones you got, it might help us get the rest.

Why don't you post the questions as well, kayla? That way, we can see how to dissect the answer!
Hope nerr could be strung together to sound like opener. Just a suggestion.

They aren't questions, they are just sentences that have an answer...I have them in the top post. That's all they gave us to work with.

So...
"I got number 1" = hope?
Hmmm. The only things I recognized were the words "heart grenade." Sorry, Kayla.

It's a song about the perfect girl, lyrically


Yes, but, so are thousands of other songs...why this one? Especially since this song can only be very loosely interpreted that way.

The answers must sure be Greenday related? For example the blue heart grenade question - perhaps there is band member wearing a blue HG shirt on a recent press photo or in a video and the answer is the name? or the "I got no 1" is perhaps the first track of the new album etc

Maybe I am missing the point of this riddle completely, though


I do not want any google ads here.

Kayla, not to be mean but... are you a bit slow? We asked repatedly for the questions and you contended you straight CCPed from the Green Day website.
Here are the actual questions to numbers one and five:

1. Thanksgiving is near and what better time for a parade. Each year I have a brand new... (damn i can't think of the word I want to use) that something cool would happen during a parade. Figure out the word I wanted to use and you can use all of its letters.


5. Billie and Jason have something in common. If you take the tenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth letter of this you can add them to your list. And since there are two of them, you can use two of the sixteenth letter.

Umm, and there were at least two requests for the actual questions/ hints so we could decipher the best angle to attack the others.

Okay, maybe you didn't quite understand what I said. I already have the answers for 1 and 5 and I didn't need your help. I don't apprecaite you calling me slow when you didn't read what I wrote in the first place. Just forget it guys, it's no big deal.

I asked twice. Well, actually, I asked once and vefified once. (well, attempted to verify.) And I really wanted to help Kayla as hse wants the DVD and I like a good challenge, but with incomplete info, deciphering any riddle becomes exponentially more difficult.

And don't call me friend in a patronising way.
