This used to be played on a math forum I used to frequent in my middle school days, and directions are taken from that site's forums - http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/Forum/index.php "Imagine a conversation among a group of people. In each post, a sentence is posted. For the next post, think about a sentence that logically follows from that previous sentence, but don't post that. Rather think again about what the next sentence to be said after that would be, and post this one. In other words, in a conversation among people, post the 1st sentence said, the 3rd sentence said, 5th, and etc. up the odd-numbered sentences." I'll start: Hi, how are you?
