Good try!

"Where David the True Stands"- (Michaelangelo's Original statue of David stands in FLORENCE)
"Between Dusk and Dawn" = NIGHT
"In Strong Wind"= IN GALE
"The Dame of the Twisted Palm
Is Found"
- when "twisted" the word "palm" becomes "lamp"
i.e "THE LADY OF THE LAMP"

FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE

Try this one:

The first being a numerically determined;
My first and fourth are two twenty-fourths.
My second and fifth are two fifths.
My third and sixth are
one eighteenth and one nineteenth respectively.
Together these parts make a king of heroes,
Who am I?

I haven't done these puzzles since 8th grade!  And it's the last thing I need to be thinking about with a final coming up tonight!

Word games suck...period.  !!!! 

Actually some of them arn't that bad.  The ones where you have to use your brain.  THOSE really suck!  ;D
When your brain is swimming in shlivo, serbski, getting single non-puzzling words out is difficult enough.

I received the following forward in my email. It's one of those "we can guess your answer" type tests, but i'm suprised it actually works. I tried to figure out how it works, but I got bored after 2 minutes.

Here it is:

>>This is amazing!
>>
>>Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a lie anyway-but the Hershey Man will know!
>> DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
>>
>>        It takes less than a minute .
>>
>>        Work this out as you read ...
>>
>>        Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it
>>out!
>>
>>        This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.
>>
>>
>>
>>        1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that! you
>>would
>>like to
>>
>>        have chocolate
>>
>>        (more than once but less than 10)
>>
>>
>>
>>        2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
>>
>>
>>
>>        3. Add 5
>>
>>
>>
>>        4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the
>>calculator.
>>
>>
>>
>>        5. If you have already had your birthday this year add
>>1756 ....
>>
>>        If you haven't, add 1755.
>>
>>
>>
>>        6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
>>
>>
>>
>>        You should have a three digit number.
>>
>>
>>
>>        The first digit of this was your original number
>>
>>        (i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each
>>week).
>>
>>
>>
>>        The next two numbers are
>>
>>        YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>        THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2006) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD
>>IT AROUND
>>WHILE
>>
>>        IT LASTS
>>

I hate to be "android" about this, but this is how it works:
This is the year 2006
2006= 1756+250
250= 5x50
so 2006=1756+(5x50) (steps 3, 4 and 5)
100=2x50
single digit 'Y' x 100 = 'Y'00 (steps 1, 2 and 4)
2006-(your birth year)= your age (step 6)

So, you are simply multiplying the number of times you eat chocolate by a hundred and adding it your age (2006 minus your birth year).

...End communication.....
