3. Neither-Seven eights are FIFTY SIX

4. They threw one cigarette away, thus making the boat a cigarette lighter

I disagree with your number 4. Maybe if you asked "how they found a cigarette lighter", but the boat is a cigarette lighter, but this evades the original question. (yes i do get the pun). And i already referred to your # 3. The post i referred to can be found here http://brainden.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=42
