I see why he gave out these for free. A few already exist. The rest, well, we are probably better off if they never are attempted. lol I only read through the first 50(??) maybe? Then it took 17 minutes to scroll through the rest to get here. I have a better idea than these.... for fun, those that made it to here by scrolling, say "i". ;)

I read a lot of the first 100 then started scrolling and reading random ones through out.

Some I thought where clever and others where just reaching.
