Recently Brock’s Cleaning Service janitor Loftus began the following thread:
This thread may not last as long as some others.
To win be the last person to post a correct answer to the following math question.
Multiply the number 2 by itself and the result times the number two and the result times the number 2 until the last person posts the last correct answer.
2 x 2 = 4.
Now multiply 4 by 2 and the result by 2 and so on and so forth.
You may post as often as you wish. One answer per post.
Any incorrect answer disqualifies you from winning the thread, prize to be announced.
Four hours later, Loftus makes the second post:
I guess I win then.
My prize is a beautiful girl to show up at my door with a case of cold beer.
What would Loftus' wife and kids say about this?
