Round #2 - Deepstash

# Round #2

In Round II, #1 starts by bumping off #3. Thus, the numbers that survive correspond to (1+4n) and therefore, the last one surviving the round is (1+4*24) ie 97 who proceeds to bump off #99 and hands the dagger to #1.

So far so good?

100 people standing in a circle in an order 1 to 100.

No. 1 has a sword. He kills the next person (i.e. No. 2) and gives the sword to the next (i.e. No. 3). All people do the same until only 1 survives. Which number survives at the last?

In Round VI, survivors are #9, #41 and #73. So, once again, #9 bumps off #41 and hands the dagger over to #73. But, what goes around, comes around.

#73 bumps off #9 and emerges the winner of this round and the whole series.

The lone survivor in friend kills friend, man kills man sordid puzzle is #73 and of course, the ubiquitous dagger.

In Round III, #1 bumps off #5 and hands the dagger to #9. Survivors follow the pattern (1+8n) with #97 being the last one in the round (1+8*12). The person next to him is #1 and it is his turn to get bumped off. Next round starts with #9

In Round V, survivors are #9 {(1+8*1)}, #25 {(1+8*3)}, #41, #57 & #73. Alternate knocks and #9 kills #25, dagger to #41 who kills #57 who gives dagger to #73 who kills #89 and hands the dagger over to #9.

In round one, number 1 picks up the dagger/sword and kills the person next to him - #2. He proceeds to hand the dagger over to #3 who kills #4 and so on.

Thus all even numbers die with #100 being the last one to die and the dagger is with #1 for round II.

In 2015, Nasa sent Scott Kelly to space and left Mark Kelly, his twin brother, on Earth. The experiment helped them determine that, due to the lack of stress on the skeleton, a person loses ~1% of their bone density after one month in space. For comparison, an average person aged 65 and older loses that 1% over the course of a year.

Fear only exists to you in your mind and it is protecting you from the unknown.

As human being, it's going to be normal to feel fear. It's going to happen for the rest of your life, but you do now want to let your fear control you. That is the choice that you get to make.
