    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    "HOSPITALITY" - the art of making guests feel at home (when you wish they were).

    I'd say 27 is as all the others are doubling up each time

    27, the other numbers double

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    The problem is.... without knowing the context of the numbers the solution is impossible to reach other than by guesswork, coincidence or luck..

    For example... you could have children of all the ages listed apart from 2 or 64 is not an available number in the lottery so that's it etc... etc...

    So... what are we looking at... a sequence, is there an accounting basis to this as you mentioned accountants... something to do with the Revenue, a math problem... or something else??????

    Well, 27 cannot be written 2 to the power of n, where n is an integer...
