FCF 2019 advent Calendar-final flurry

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

Sort of a POTD "special". Anything goes. The 2014 Version just did car related stuff.

We have missed 1 to 15 so lets kick off today with

16


Entries welcome from our current crop of 2019 FCF contributors old and new.

We got the full set in 2014, but is the class of 2019 as creative?

We will find out.....

Regards Neil

For a mathematical inclusion in the calendar did you realise that 2 to the power of 4 = 4 to the power of 2 and the answer is?? (From Micks mind numbingly tedious mathematical idiosynchresies) :-D

Ah, sweet 16 of course!
As I get older I think a lot about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

Now if you like a game of cribbage then, with the lady as the turn up, you will recognise a score of 16:
