1. My letters are in order, but that’s not very fun

So half were put in answer two and half in answer one

I’m something rather powerful strewn wildly about

And though you cannot hear me, you’ll never tune me out

that means it begins or ends with it right? no anagrams? im terrible at anagrams..

But it doesn't mean that it's every letter. Maybe some are skipped. Or perhaps they are in alphabetical order. And what's killing me, is that I want to just say

but I can't make that work at all.

2. You saw a T-shirt which costs \$97. You don't have any money, so you borrowed from your parents \$50 each. Your parents agreed and you make sure that you'll pay as soon as you have the money. So now you have \$100. You bought the T-shirt for \$97 and you have \$3 as exchange. You paid your parents \$1 each so your credit to them will be deducted by \$1. Therefore it will be \$49 each. And you still have \$1.

\$49(your credit to your father) + \$49(to your mother)= \$98 + \$1(the one left to you)= \$99

Where's the \$1 to get \$100?

Yeah, that calculation is bass-ackwards. <_<

If that makes sense to anyone, please let me know; the majority of people I try to explain that to say that I'm wrong just because they're afraid to understand that choices are made for them, it's just the paths taken to accept those choices are what affect your destiny.

Yes, that makes sense. It's like the guy who was prophesied to be killed by his son, so he has all his sons put to death, but one escapes death, grows up not knowing his father, and winds up killing him because of it. Destiny & free will are not mutually exclusive. That upsets people.
