    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Don't forget that your brain needs exercise too! Try these mind twisting exercises and share your best guesses below:

    • Using only basic arithmetic operations (+ - x /) can you get 98 using only 7 sevens? Each 7 may only be used once and you must use all 7 sevens. ----> 7 7 7 7 7 7 7.

    • A mother is 21 years older than her son. In 6 years time the son will be 5 times younger than the mother. Where is the father?

    • What are the next two pairs of letters in this list? SO, ND, JF, MA, ??, ??
    And, if you've already made it through those questions, here's one last riddle for you:

    You have been imprisoned in a castle and your prison guards decide to tempt you with freedom, but at a big risk. They show you 2 doors, each with a guard standing in front, one door leads to the hanging gallows and the other leads directly out the castle and into freedom.

    You are told that one guard is a liar, and will always lie and the other guard will speak only the truth.

    You have no idea which guard is which, or what door is what. Your prison guards laugh and inform you that you may only ask One question.

    Impossible, you think at first, but then you have a moment of inspiration. What question do you ask?
