I'm definitely worse at this than I thought I would be, lol. Good thing I'm leaving to go to the waterpark with my family for the day so that I can stop obsessing over it!

((Paraguayan drinking age) + (Number of Woot's "Real Actual Field Tests" videos)) * (Mexican states) ^ 2

((20)+(26)) * (31) ^ 2 = 44,206

What did I do wrong???

Heck - I can't even remember what the ^ stands for.

Then again, I went to Wheaton High School. We may not have learned math but we could hot wire your car.

What does the ^ mean in math?

How did you arrive at 26 videos? When people get it wrong it's not usually a math issue.

From the YouTube channel. Most recent one there was labelled 26.

I'm unsure whether the ^2 applies to just the 31 or to the product.

Sold out quick, but for those looking:
(8 / 2) ^ 12 = 16777216

*Hijacking original post to say, this was probably one of the few chances for me. I actually knew the first two and only had to Google one. Tried to copy/paste and calculate value while also participating on a conference call for work. :x

You have the right answer, their blog update says their URL got truncated on the actual woot page. The Blog post had the full URL. But alas it is sold out. yes it was 16777216

Maybe its just me, but I like this new way of doing the Board of Circuits#39;s. I was lucky enough to get one so possibly I am a little jaded, LOL. The crossword one was cool, and this one is pretty awesome I think, it kind of levels the playing field, imho.

I have tried several different numbers and not been able to find the page for the rambo one.

((8+4)*236)^2=8020224 is right isn't it?

Wikipedia is always pretty good for this type of minutia, but the Rambo one I found here http://voices.yahoo.com/how-many-people-were-killed-during-rambo-movies-3848194.html?cat=9

But I missed the year part. That and they've added a taxonomic division since I was in college!

But this website http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/9975/new-rambo-has-biggest-body-count has 236 killed in the movie. The clue says killed in the movie, not killed by Rambo.

I used that chart too- but why did the correct calculation use 83 instead of 236? It only specified people killed, not people killed by rambo and his shirt.

Should've been 236 - total number of people killed. They didn't specify "by Rambo". That's pretty much not fair. (sad face)

Votes appreciated.

I'm getting the answers (after much time so I would be missing the Board of Circuits anyway), but not the format of the URL. Earlier you just added the answer to the end of the URL, but that didn't work this time. The clue seems to indicate that it should be inserted into the middle of the URL, but that didn't work either. Would someone mind clueing me in here? Maybe I had some extra ///s or something.

Exactly. It's hard to get excited about this when they don't use any sort of precision. I never got a Board of Circuits in the old days, but at least I could justify that it was because I didn't check exactly at midnight instead of this garbage.

I like the idea of doing something like this, but it never works out as well as they plan.

Ah that's interesting, I didn't really notice that detail. The Yahoo page (mentioned above) where I also got the answer I thought was right says: "But the 2008 Rambo IV movie led all of the Rambo flicks with 83 total killed."

So, it says "total killed", I figured meant ...total killed. Not until later sentences does this article clarify "killed by Rambo."

Edit: I see now the earlier sentences are talking about number of people Rambo killed. My eyes just darted right to the sentence with the number in it, and out of context, since it says total, it sounds right!

Woot, re-do! Just send buckets of chapstick to everyone who had the other number...and me.
