Towr is on a roll. Somebody stop him!  
 
As it happens, yesterday I was watching a soccer game, Real Madrid vs. Roma. A thought occurred to me, that Real will not be the same w/o Ronaldo. But, they were playing just fine. Hell, more than fine, and so their fans have nothing to worry about. My countryman Luka Modric was "Real" good, even though I don't like him very much. Short people scare me, with an analogy being an elephant going amok when he sees a mouse.

If you're hinting at the intended answer then you're right. Yes. I believe you're right, even though the way it is worded it may seem a bit vague. So this is a riddle in a riddle to some (dumb). Alright!

As for the riddle, could it be: egg

Yes! I mean, sorry 'bout that SMQ. Towr beat you to it. If you snooze you lose. And if you lose - - - you finally snooze! The problem is, all that you'll be doing from that moment on is - - - snoozing. Ergo don't you neither snooze nor lose.

Uses http rather than https for the img tags, since at least for me using Tampermonkey on 64-bit Chrome it was broken.  Frankly I'm a bit surprised it still works at all more than a decade after I first wrote it! Smiley

 5   riddles / cs / Re: integer encoding with increasing number of bit  Sep 17th, 2018, 6:18am

A few properties of note:
 
- The second half of the sequence is the first half of the sequence inverted and reversed (which is true of many useful binary sequences.)
 
- The number of n-bit integers with k 1's is just the binomial coefficient (n/k)
 
- There is no closed form equation for partial sums of binomial coefficients. That makes it unlikely that there's a simple way to encode/decode the sequence.

Letter H comes 8th in the alphabetic order. And eight is the number, the one and only. Silly, isn't it.

Well, apparently wikipedia disagrees with me Tongue  
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Median_of_medians mentions it can be used as a pivot strategy for quicksort (and also that it's typically outperformed by using a random pivot)

Perhaps a mirror will assist you. Yep. Pretty shallow.

The intended answer is cast in the same mold. No subways though. Just another peaceful and blissful day. Ergo indoors rings a bell.
