 Maneesh Nov 17, 2001 Sorry !!

It's some trick of the mind! comet16 Apr 01, 2002 I also used Dominican Republic Drunky Apr 04, 2002 lol i somehow got baghdad and blue butterflys bmotts Jul 29, 2002 I'm a kangaroo, and I live in Denmark. Please respect me. gracielagata Sep 06, 2002 anybody know a country beginning with y, taht is waht i got.. couldnt think of a country though.. oh well! CCat20 Oct 06, 2002 unnatural! great! jimbo May 02, 2003 It neither sports brown echidnas or koalas but it might have apples. liquidblue May 17, 2003 drunky, if you got baghdad, you need to go back to elementry school and redo the math. if you multiply a number from the set 1-10, by 9, your answer will always add together to get 9... 18, 27, 36... take off 5 and you are forced every time to get 4 or D. baghdad does not start with d, nor is it a country. ace_of_spades Nov 06, 2004 How did this get accepted? It's not even a teaser! FriarFox Oct 11, 2005 I also thought of Dominican Republic, but my animals were the Ostrich and Chinchilla?? peppamintp Nov 17, 2005 I thought of Denmark but my animal was also an Emu. This is some sort of joke thats been on the net for years. Doesn't this violate some rule of Braingle? GoHarryPotterCS Dec 24, 2005 It's so obvious how this works! Any multiple of 9 when the didgits added up = 9 and 9-5 will always = 4 and d is the 4th letter in the aplphabet. Then Denmark gray elephants and orangle kangaroos are the most common - ( i agree how did this get approved???) norcekri Dec 24, 2005 I used Djibouti, jaguar (black), and spaced on the fruit. Yes, this is an old brain teaser, from before the days of USENET, let alone the Web. The Braingle editors do sometimes approve interesting conginitive tricks. Also, keep in mind that the editors do update the rules and standards as necessary. They rarely maintain the site by retroactively applying new standards to approved teasers -- they have better things to do with their time, such as keeping up with the backlog of submitted teasers, PMs, and other, proactive site maintenance. Considering what they get paid, I'm not complaining. sugarnspice4u7 Jan 01, 2006 omgosh!! good job!! i am so scared! thats what i got!!! wow!! terrific job!!!!! write back!!! jntrcs Apr 22, 2006 dominican republic brown owl there is no teaser to this and its flawed triskit May 07, 2006 I had koala 12345_lewis2 Jun 26, 2006 I thought of Dubai, White Unicorn, Tamarind Insect GoHarryPotterCS Jun 28, 2006 I just sent in a correction to add a "note" in the answer. If it gets accepted you can read it. Punk_Rocker Aug 02, 2006 I thought of an eagle.. Stormcrafter Dec 28, 2006 Easy to outsmart Just uses the general average. Up to the point it asks you to think of a country, it is completely controlled - anything between one and ten multiplied by nine will have one or two digits that add up to 9 I went right through it with nothing correct 4demo Jan 27, 2008 I got Dominican Republic, ostrich, brown, cat, and apple. (Well, I wasn't quite sure what color ostriches are, but I'm pretty sure there are brown ones.) Joose Sep 10, 2011 I thought of Dubai. Then an urchin, although I wasn't sure what color urchins are. Then an iguana. Then a nectarine. But then I wasn't sure if Dubai actually counted as a country. So I went Denmark. Brown eagle. Koala apple. bamafan99 Dec 18, 2011 Djibouti Jaguar Iguana Arhat bamafan99 Dec 18, 2011 Djibouti Jaguar Yellow Iguana Arhat
