Was it supposed to be fibonacci?

I fail to get it.

for every number, you can come up with a rule such that it would be next number of the sequence.
I don't really understand why it's funny, but I think that he is trying to say that asking for the next number in the sequence is stupid in a humorous way.

Uh. So the next number is 54? Weird sequence, dude. But "my penis" is not right either...

Next in the sequence is 15. http://oeis.org/A080239

I don't quitteeee get the sequence. explan?

The next number is -1
The numbers are following the polynomial -(7/120)*n^5 + n^4 -(51/8)*n^3 + 19*n^2 -(767/30)*n + 13
with n = 1,2,3...

I think I get it. His penis can take any number for its size.

1 1 2 3 and then 69... and after 69 comes :P

those are the roots of the polynomial (x-1)^2*(x-2)*(x-3)*(x-6)*(x-9)*(x-MY PENIS), ordered by size, with MY PENIS: size of my penis in inch.

You should probably go with cm

What "comes" next in the sequence

everyone knows it's 42.

It's handy to have when you have to count to 21.

…because I'm not skilled enough to make your mom come next. :(

i think it s 24 and 27 seperated the numbers in 2 groups in odd and even, we got 1,2,6 and 1,3,9 then here comes the result, the progress s perfect but i fail to see its connection with penis, who got other answer?

gosh how comes it s 6.01 pm while actualy it s midnite o.O

I usually answer "What do you want to come next?"

i get 18, then 27 , based on that it's multiplication with 1.5, then 2, then 1.5, then 2 and so on.. the second one being an integer, where the math program had been acting like it's programming.
This reminds me, does anyone know a math program that isn't based on a programming language. I currently use Mathcad and work around its limitations (not being able to come up with a symbolic solution to differential equations), but I would like if anyone on here knows something. I'm a horrible programmer, and I find it fundamentally wrong to spend more time finding syntax errors than doing actual math.

Seriously? No one else gets this? Haven't you guys heard of the pen 15 club?

Fibonacci : 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, .
so is not Fibonacci

I think the next number is 14
1 1 2 3 6 9
0 1 1 3 3
2
so the difference between the first two digits is zero ,
between 1 and 2 is 1
2 and 3 is 1
3 and 6 is 3
6 and 9 is 3
and the difference between pairs 1 1 and 3 3 is 2

so de next difference should be should be the same number 2
and the next pair is 5 5

So I think the sequence is :
1,1,2,3,6,9,14..
0 1 1 3 3 5

Now gathered in the diagonal, the figures in the first row, with the figures in the second row
1+0 =1
1+1 =2
2+1 =3
3+3 =6
6+3=9

If you have noticed the first time I gathered with zero
then with 1 and 1
then with 3 and another one 3
so de difference is 2
In conclusion, the next pair of numbers will be higher by 2 units

9+5 =14
14+5=19
This is my opinion

MY GOD. 69, the position guys!

I think it's 18. Alternate adding previous 2 and previous 3.
1,1,2,3,6,9....
0+1+1=2
1+2=3
1+2+3=6
3+6=9
3+6+9=18

I think it's 18. Alternate adding previous 2 and previous 3.
1,1,2,3,6,9....
0+1+1=2
1+2=3
1+2+3=6
3+6=9
3+6+9=18

Crud, sorry. I didn't realize it worked the first time.

Also, first time commenting! :-) (well, third now, I suppose)
