I'm pretty sure I understand what the numbers mean. However, without knowing the right "conditions" I don't see how i'm suppose to know the answer.

Can anyone give a hint to the "conditions" of this challenge without giving the challenge away? or is this part of the problem?

Did the title help you to discover the meaning of the numbers? All my associations of 'poke' haven't led to anything so far. Crying or Very sad

I think I understand what the numbers are saying, but I can't see what they are refering to. Maybe that's the "condition" MerickOWA says. I tried several possibilities, legally and illegaly(!), with no luck.

By the way, "Poke me" and "Pokemon" are similar. Smile

Right, this was one of my associations (along with memory-stuff from BASIC) which didn't help me too far.

It helped me in so far as I got a lucky google with that and a few other words that showed me something that helped me understand what the numbers might mean.

After doing some research I was pretty convinced of what the number meant, it was the "conditions" part that took me longer before I understood what the answer was.

Hmm...
I checked the numbered fruit of course, but it didn't make sense.
The mustache brothers didn't help, either. Rolling Eyes

I think this is a very very tough challenge.

I honestly believe I was just lucky to figure it out, both in figuring out the numbers and the context.

The difficulty of this challenge depends on one's age and origin. BTW, I couldn't agree with you more, MagneticMonopole...
