Gertie just came from the office of her dear departed aunt's lawyer. She was told that her aunt (who loved language teasers) left her a certain amount of money in US Dollars. The lawyer explained that according to the terms of her aunt's Last Will and Testament, Gertie will get fifty times the original amount bequeathed if she could correctly guess the amount left her by midnight tomorrow. "God, that would be thousands of dollars if you succeed," the lawyer said as he handed her a note from her aunt. It read:

RAIN RIDDLE: OLD ASTRONOMY HOST ALLOWS ABLE LASS ENTRY IN OWN LAND ESTATE. Love Aunt Alley.

Question: How many thousand dollars did her millionaire aunt leave Gertie?

Great teaser. The hint was harder to solve than the teaser though, not that I solved either mind you. But it is always nice to end with the mental image of G-strings and bikinis on a beach.

From the 5/19 comment--what does 1337 mean?

Posted by CocoaPuff07/08/03
Probably if you put it on a calculator or cell phone & turn it upside down.
