I must say - 45 rings were given total. If you only look at the 12th day of Christmas, sure - true love gets 5. But she gets that on the 5th-11th days as well. Same goes for the other two gifts.

Well, I've got to run to one of our warehouses and check their wireless. Hopefully after this headset is the lunch/shirt.woot break and I don't miss any!

Yeah that one was a little cruel. In the original it's 12 lords. Also, we were technically wrong about the Defenders (turns out Silver Surfer didn't show up until issue #2) so the first who pointed that out have been crapped.

Yeah, this feels exceptionally half-assed, even by woot standards.

Although the Kodak Easyshare clue states that Gilgamesh's son was named Erlungal...Don't you mean Ernungal?

You have no idea how many variations I tried for this one... At one point I just started guessing link numbers! You are the best person in the world and I hope your crap is the best crap out there!

Thanks for letting everyone get the chance...not.

What was the answer? I keep getting 13^5+96 which is wrong, tried 11, and 12 for the courts.

There are 9 judges on the supreme court. I thought the question was how many courts are there though.

9th circuit court of appeals. At least, that's just the thought I had at the moment I was trying to solve it.

There were nine courts originally when they were created - I guess that's where it comes from? Who knows.

The question is about the number of US courts of appeals, of which there are 12 regional and one national.

I'm confused. We had 13 down as the number of courts. Is the link to that solution not working?

Hmm...46 (JFK) + 49 (Garfield) + 58 (McKinley) + 56 (Lincoln) * 17 Cantos = 3553 ... what am I missing?

this is very strange.. I came up with "371389" by using (13)^(5)+(96)... and it worked, and was sold out.

13 courts, 5 colors, 96 years
