0, 6, 24, 60, 120, 210, , ,

how does this continue ?

Nooooooooooooo... a number cannot start with zero You are on the right track though But, it is not that simple

Now, about the sequence, that was really tough. I had to plot them on Matlab, and they looked like a quadratic function, and then out of nowhere, I saw it
0 = 0 * 1 * 2
6 = 1 * 2 * 3
24 = 2 * 3 * 4
60 = 3 * 4 * 5
120 = 4 * 5 * 6
210 = 5 * 6 * 7
which means the next number should be
6 * 7 * 8 = 336

Very nice one

OK, another type of joke then.

Somewhere in the very universe we're all in, a planet exists, which almost exactly mirrors the earth we live on. But unfortunately, due to a slight mistake in the creation of that planet, the people there miss something crucial. As a result of that piece missing, they miss even a lot more. Some hints as to find out what they miss (which is YOUR quest!), here's what they have/don't have.

They eat with spoons and knives, but don't have forks. Their world is shaped like ours, all continents are there, except for Africa though. They don't know french fries (shame on them!) but do have potatoes. Wolf_ couldn't exist there. People there have sex and orgasms, but don't fake.

What do those people miss? You should know by now

Ummm... teeth?? This is awesome MORE MORE MORE!

EDIT: I don't understand the significance of the Africa part though? Did the first human with teeth evolve in Africa?

You're totally wrong here, but it's fun guessing, right? I'll post the right answer in 24 hours, if not found out before

o_O A planet in a universe..

Can one get there with a transdimensional engine, containing bugs?

Hmm... so, with "wolf_ wouldn't exist there" you actually mean wolf_ the MSXer, not wolves? This is getting tricky

I would say an "F".

Edwin, you got it right! Congrats man!

This one is specifically for AuroraMSX, (because brute force will never work here )

Tsk, as long as you can write a nice math equation for it, it can be solved with brute force:

Iterate over N: (N*10 + 7) * 7 == int(log10(N)+1)*7 + N

I'll leave the programming as an exercise for the reader
